I believe the bar known as lunacy and hypocrisy has been raised Paul Krugman, an op ed contributor to the New York Times whom has recently shown how afraid of Gov. Rick Perry he is. Paul Krugman is also a 2008 winner of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences and has a B.A from Yale and Ph.D. from MIT... Notice any similarities with any other left leaning folks?
Well, apparently our economics problems have been solved.. Krugman has informed us that a Space Alien Attack will save our economy!! He went on to claim a stimulus, somewhat similar to the WW2 works program, would help.
A quote from Mr. Krugman: "No, there was a Twilight Zone episode like this in which scientists fake an alien threat in order to achieve world peace. This time we don’t need that we need it in order to get some fiscal stimulus."
This is the real kicker. The Left, and Paul himself, have claimed all recent wars were fake: Iraq, Afghanistan, and he was against Libya as well. But, a fake Alien Invasion would be just fine. Mr Krugman must watch too much SCIFI. Sorry, Paul, but since you seem to be stuck in a fantasy world, let us remind you it was not FDR's work programs that got the US out of the depression, it was WW2. The stimulus bills have only extended this recession that, if we would have followed history, we could be free of. I guess the left can usher in a fake alien invasion, but like the stimulus bills, we're bound to continue this high unemployment trend.
By the way, if imaginary aliens do try to invade, we can introduce imaginary weaponry and techniques to repel these imaginary invaders..
