  1. That A train was stopped at Broadway Junction in East New York. Not the best area....

  2. I watched the subway fight clip on youtube and didn't realize that was a whole genre. I rode those NYC trains for far too long and am so glad to be gone from there.

  3. Charlie Hides is genius! If you haven't seen his Madonna/Cher/Liza/Gaga/Barbara Walters/Ke$ha series yet I highly recommend going back to the first one!


    His other videos are fun too.

  4. Debit for Dummies is great.

  5. Fallacy.

    Raising taxes for the highest earners DOES NOT exacerbate the recession.

  6. that debt video is bull. the us gov't is NOT running out of people to sell bonds too. in fact, bonds are in such high demand right now that the price of them is going UP. core inflation for june 2011 was -0.1%. that's not a typo.

  7. I give an A for effort on these Madonna videos, but I think he could use a better writer. They just aren't that funny.

  8. The debt for dummies video gets it mostly right. But I agree with Rodney's point.

    Also, when discussing ways out of the "stagflation," raising taxes and cutting spending are the only options mentioned. Doing one without the other doesn't make sense. More important, the solution is for the Gov to SPEND money -- sending it directly to consumers who can immediately put it back into the economy, and you know, pay their bills (aka the private sector). It's a win-win.

  10. I don't agree that raising taxes on the wealthy would extend the recession. Basically this video said we should all just lay back and get f+ked and there's nothing to do with it?
    ALSO that Madonna/Gaga sh*t isn't funny, let's put it away, girls.

  11. I can see even the LGBT community isn't safe from the Tea Party line of thinking. It's infectious- and it's getting worse.

  12. Deficit for Dummies is bogus and absymally stupid. Here's the real deal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOP2V_np2c0&feature=player_embedded

  13. That Debt Crisis for Dummies video is so laden with factual errors that I suspect its actually titled the Debt Crisis by Dummies.

    It is facile and beneath the standards of Towleroad. How on Earth can you justify spreading right-wing propaganda? I have never been so angry at a gay blog as I am now. This isn't an economics blog but you do owe your readership honest reporting and the above is nothing but dishonest.

  14. Wow - could not pay me to live in NYC.

  15. Couldn't pay me to live in NY either, Mike. In DC the Metro Ain't Right, but at least it moves sometimes. WTF subway that does not move?

    Posted by: Timothy | Aug 11, 2011 8:32:38 AM

  16. The reason it didn't move? It's the A train for one. And the mta is run by a bunch of greedy, lazy goons.
