BY THE NUMBERS BLOG This is my nerd friend David's blog about economics. You've heard him on the show and now you can read his stuff too!
BLUEGRASS INSTITUTE Free market solutions for Kentucky

HOW IS IT THAT A FOUR YEAR OLD CAN DISRUPT AN ENTIRE MORNING WITH SUCH LITTLE EFFORT? That is a rhetorical question as in introduction to an apology for this brief blog.
CONGRESSMAN THOMAS MASSIE at 10:10. We'll see what he thinks about the efforts to defund the NSA spying program.
ALISON COMES OUT SWINGING Alison Lundergan Grimes has released a video introducing her mulligan campaign announcement. In the video, she looks great, she sounds great, and she says that Mitch McConnell has been obstructing legislation that would be good for Kentucky. But then she lists things that have passed anyway.

OMG...CAN'T...STOP...LAUGHING....They should have read the bill before they supported it. Yet another union is now saying they don't want Obamacare. And you won't believe who this union represents.
I'M HAPPY, HOW BOUT YOU? There have been many studies showing that people of a more conservative mindset are happier, and this latest one confirms that. I have a theory about why, one that is shared in this article. But I will expound.
