So I’m watching Fox while cleaning up my apartment, and they have this “financial expert” on, saying things like you can “put your money in the bank” if it’s privatized and that you’d have a better rate of return if you stuffed your money “under your mattress” instead of investing it in special-issue treasury bonds.

I ask myself, “Who is this idiot?” Unfortunately he’s Jonathan Hoenig, a Northwestern graduate who runs Capitalist Pig Management LLC. In order to get a friendly voice on privatization, Fox had to go to a Badnarik voter who runs a fund called Capitalist Pig.

I think to myself, “Wow this Social Security plan is really crashing on the launchpad.” And then Fox shows this.

I’m pretty sure you could drop acid and produce a more sensible line-up than Fox News right now.
