You’re right. It would probably take more than a few minutes.
I still find it really amusing that basically the only person I enjoy reading at Reason (there is Jesse Walker, too) has decided it is his job to defend his slimy cohorts from the invading liberal hordes.
And has anyone gotten around to explaining how a town handing out a bid during a competitive bidding process to serve 25,000 residents of a community in a county of 4 million people is a “state sanctioned monopoly?” See that blazing red spot on the map? We ain’t talking about the middle of nowhere in the desert. Or do these guys make up their own definitions to go with their new math?

enjoy the silence…
“I don’t have a view of what are natural rights independent of the Constitution,” Kagan said.

Did these liberals—some of whom frequently flashed their free trade credentials during the Bush administration—just forget what they used to believe? Or are they suppressing their principles until Obama announces that the economic crisis has finally been solved and we can resume regularly scheduled fiscal sobriety? Either way, their ongoing silence has to count as one of the great underreported political stories of the Obama presidency.
Although Chávez forcefully denied the existence of any such majority, insisting that it was his Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela (PSUV) that had obtained the majority of the national vote, his complete silence following the announcement of the results was a telling statement in itself:
An Odd Silence on Gay Marriage
That Caplan so deftly and convincingly argues that voter’s anti-market biases are, well, bad for democracy, and seeing as Alternet has yet to debunk Caplan’s book, I suspect that Alex won’t mind if I interpret his employers deafening silence as a damning concession.
i could go on.
