Akbar Palace,

Quick note in my defense. I never compared the two. I only said Krauthammer reminded me of Yassin. The similarity in my mind begins and ends with spinal cord injury and being confined to wheelchairs.

To be blunt, I know precious little about both people. But you have inspired me to learn more about Krauthammer. Right now it’s a bit of a mixed bag, to be honest.

Most objectionably so far, last night I read one of Krauthammer’s Washington Post editorials from earlier in 2014 about the politics of Climate Change and “Hurricane” Sandy (yes, I know it was technically a tropical depression when it arrived ashore).

Honestly, I’m no climate expert but I was able to rubbish in my mind everything that Krauthammer said on the matter. I plan to maybe write a comment here specifically dedicated to how and where Krauthammer is devastatingly wrong on Sandy. But alas, it might have to wait a while. I have lots of things to do today.

Ray,

I am yet to read your comments in response to me. Give me some time and I promise I’ll deal with you later! Right now I’m starving and need to rummage some lunch for myself. :)

The good news is that Krauthammer just has to hang in there for a while longer and there’s a very good chance modern medicine will get him out of that wheelchair.

Samer,

I doubt it. But I am hopeful strides in this field will help those in the future with similar ailments.

I hate to compare Yassin to Krauthammer, as Yassin was a disgusting anti-semite.

Enjoying your posts as always.

If you produce 10% of the apples and agree with another producer of 10% of the world’s apples (but whose economy does not rely 90% on apple production) you pretty much have those that do cornered.

What else do Iran and Russia really export?

Samer,

It is very difficult to rig the oil market to higher prices without a cohesive cartel. A sort of Mafia that agrees to regulate production and the price.

If you haven’t noticed, the “Bosses” aren’t so cohesive these days. There is pretty much disarray between them.

However, it is pretty easy to take massive short positions in the “market” when you decide to start selling your oil at $80 to the US. You make money both ways.

Capice?
