It’s taken me a week to get to the point where I can write this.
I am not an economist. I was a software engineer who decided to become a stay-at-home dad/Household Manager. I had no course on Econ while in college. I had a high school understanding of supply and demand. A few months ago, I picked up “An Idiot’s Guide to Economics”.
This is probably going to be part one of many, and this one will be rather short because it is just so totally incomprehensible to me.
A district in Colorado just elected a state representative who has diagnosed, at a distance, that some people have been possessed by demons. A man who believes not only that demons exist but that they possess people and that you can tell those people are possessed from halfway across the country was elected to represent a section of people in the state of Colorado. He is also a virulently anti-gay bigot.
Now, what in the world do they think this guy is going to do for them within their state? Outlaw homosexuality? Enact laws against demonic possession?
Seriously, what the fuck were these people thinking?
