    This guy meets all the criteria: He's written for Rolling Stone, he regularly uses the word "blows," and he has his own hashtag. And for added credit, said hashtag is #FULLCOMMUNISM!

    Plus, he's been taken down a few notches by MSM.


    His manifesto:

    A top candidate for Ezra Klein's job when he leaves the Post.

    Or maybe Rachel Maddow will put him on in prime time on MSNBC.

    "Unemployment blows. The easiest and most direct solution is for the government to guarantee that everyone who wants to contribute productively to society is able to earn a decent living in the public sector."

    "Because as much as unemployment blows, so do jobs. What if people didn't have to work to survive? Enter the jaw-droppingly simple idea of a universal basic income, in which the government would just add a sum sufficient for subsistence to everyone's bank account every month."

    Geez, why didn't we think of that?

    Bonus: In case you didn't know, "ownership" is as simple as saying, "This is mine!"

    "ver noticed how much landlords blow? They don't really do anything to earn their money. They just claim ownership of buildings and charge people who actually work for a living the majority of our incomes for the privilege of staying in boxes that these owners often didn't build and rarely if ever improve."

    I'm all for this one if I can stay where I live now:

    He has the same disdain for landlords, who "don't really do anything to earn their money." Which is why, Myerson writes, we need communal ownership of land, or something.

    Of course the guy who owns my building -- a union electrician, no less -- spent 17 years rebuilding an abandoned building. Did most of the work himself, on nights and weekends.

    But, fuck him.

    Eh, just tell him you own the building now. Easy, peasy.

    Jonah Goldberg penning that op-ed is the height of something something.

    If only the Rolling Stone writer could follow the Goldbergian prosperity plan of being bankrolled by his mother.

    Love the #FULLCOMMUNISM hashtag, btw.

    Liberals always think the problem is that their ideas weren't fully implemented; their programs didn't go far enough.

    Communism has only failed everywhere it has been tried, because it wasn't pure enough.

    The stimulus just wasn't big enough.

    The was on poverty was underfunded.

    The reforms in ObamaCare aren't big enough.

    Odd that no one has ever mentioned that before either.

    Goldberg being Goldberg doesn't change the fact that Myerson is a naive, condescending jerkoff whose "column" should've never seen the light of day.

    Government dinosaur-walking jobs? Sounds like a plan to me.
