A message from the internets.
We get it, cognitive dissonance and psychology stuff. All financial professionals who have sneezed should be thrown in jail for the rest of their days. Also, our confirmation bias is telling us that that thing we thought we liked we actually only like because we like it.
We get it, there’s a linkfest for that.
We get it, our homeboy thinks that shiz is whack, wtf they be thinksin buying in at that price?
We get it, you have killed puppies and murdered babies and robbed banks and lied to the Pope and are probably lying to us right now, but it’s cool ’cause you’re honest about it.
We get it, that guy whose opinion slightly differs from yours must be an idiot.
We get it, no, that guy really is an idiot, probably the dumbest person in the world, everyone should go tell him how dumb he is right now.
We get it, we should just keep spending and spending and spending and doing otherwise is pretty much heartless towards the poor.
Brad Delong and Mark Thoma:
We get it, you suckle at the Krugman teet.
We get it, you’re probably the most well-cultured person alive, now tell us where to eat and what to see at some remote location we’ve never heard of.
We get it, there’s a market for those organs you aren’t using, sign up today!
We get it, consumer spending issues like payday loans and prepaid debit cards are important and all, but we should really be focusing on developing bike lanes in urban areas, experimenting with fine wines, and appreciating expensive artwork.
We get it, bomb-shelter-up with your gold, the apocalypse is near.
We get it, you’re going to put the economic numbers into beautiful charts the government isn’t smart enough to do themselves. Also, you’ll continue to keep a tight watch on that indicator we’ve never heard of that tracks deliveries by canoe to some island and apparently has its own index.
We get it, NGDP targeting.
We get it, layoffs, bonuses, eating contests, fashion, and extramarital affairs.
We get it, you’re with Ritholtz, jail ‘em all, MERS. Also, look at these adorable cuddly creatures.
We get it, you’re going to examine a problem that probably isn’t a very big deal and tell us how its going to ruin modern civilization.
We get it, all of our problems could be fixed if we just lowered taxes on the rich/job-creators/scrooges.
We get it, check out these 2 SHOCKING economic indicators that will change the way we view the WORLD forever.
We get it, finance and banking is complex but you understand it. It’s also very complex.
We get it, drill baby drill!
We get it, you’re an econoblogosphere mediator of sorts.
We get it, QE is NOT printing money.
We get it, Apple is a good company and makes good products. Not only that, you’re going to just present the “facts” to us in an “unbiased” way so that we can decide for ourselves that Apple invented the wheel and democracy and capitalism and electricity and has 21489045 patents on that one thing that somebody else just made.
***This list is all in good fun. If you are one of these people/blogs and were offended by any of the above, well, good. You probably need to work on your sense of humor.
