Books for Bernie

Bernie Sanders is a joke, except that he has power. That's a horror story. Let me list the ways: Soviet Union, Communist China, Pol Pot, Venezuela, etc.


I recently heard that Bernie Sanders was complaining because so many people have sent him economics books. Great economics books by people like Thomas Sowell, Friedrich Hayek, and Henry Hazlitt. I wanted to get in on this.

The first book I looked at sending was "I, Pencil" by Leonard Read. It's a wonderful economics book that is 12 pages. I heard that Bernie doesn't read any of them, so I thought that he might be able to read 12 pages. Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't have it in stock. Come on Amazon, huge letdown.

Alas, I turned to the wonderful Frederic Bastiat. I thought about sending "The Law", which is great, but I thought that 75 pages might be too long for Bernie. I finally decided on "That Which is Seen, and That Which is Not Seen". If you don't understand anything about economics, like Bernie, those 48 pages should be mind-blowing.

The first time that Amazon tried to deliver it no one was available to take it. Come to find out Bernie has a problem with the people that run his campaign. You know how he's been pushing a 15 dollar per hour minimum wage across the country? He doesn't pay his people that much. So, some of his political employees formed a union and demanded more money. Bernie said that won't work for the economics of his political machine. He received some bad press. So, to give in to their demands to try to stop the bad press he decided he would give them 15 dollars per hour, but to make his budget work he had to then cut their hours. Also, he apparently had them aggressively interrogated and harrassed and now some of his employees are pursuing legal action for that. Lol. What a joke.

I think some politicians like Bernie, AOC, and Tlaib are clear examples of the Dunning-Kruger effect. It says that some stupid people overestimate their abilities and they're too stupid to realize it. So, they become confident even though they are completely incompetent. And, guess what? People don't follow competence, they follow confidence. The reverse of that is that smart people often overestimate the competence of other people, so they're less confident. All of that adds up to the stupid people being in charge. Funny how that works, and horrifying.

If you would like to send Bernie Sanders an economics book here are the addresses for his offices: https://www.sanders.senate.gov/office-locations
If you have another address for him, that will work too.

There are a lot of good books you can send to him. Just a few of the economists that you might consider are: Frederic Bastiat, Henry Hazlitt, Thomas Sowell, Friedrich Hayek, Joseph Schumpeter, Ludwig von Mises, Eugene von Bohm-Bawerk, Leonard Read, Jean-Baptiste Say, Antoine Destutt de Tracy, Carl Menger, etc.

When Bernie was able to convince some of his employees to work again my book was delivered. Maybe one of those employees that he harassed will read it.
