Deadspin Editor On Writer’s Call To Drown Conservative Students: ‘I Can’t Argue It Wouldn’t Make The World A Better Place.’ [Watch]

Megan Fox, PJ Media

You've probably never heard of Jesse Farrar, which is understandable considering he dwells in the low places on the Internet that most people don't visit. Farrar has been a contributor for publications like Vice and Deadspin and is self-described on his blog as a "Vice Sports Fantasy Guy, Ball Reporter and Deadspin's Beer Idiot." His blog appears to be dedicated to drinking beer and informing his audience about all the diseases he catches while on the road. He rose to prominence this week when he responded to a tweet about conservative students being given poor grades as a result of their politics with a wish for their death instead.

Farrar doubled down after being given an out to say he was joking.

When contacted, his former editor at Deadspin, Barry Petchesky, chimed in with a seriously indefensible defense of Farrar.

The Reagan Tax Cuts Worked

Thanks to "bracket creep," the inflation of the 1970s pushed millions of taxpayers into higher tax brackets even though their inflation-adjusted incomes were not rising. To help offset this tax increase and also to improve incentives to work, save, and invest, President Reagan proposed sweeping tax rate reductions during the 1980s. What happened? Total tax revenues climbed by 99.4 percent during the 1980s, and the results are even more impressive when looking at what happened to personal income tax revenues. Once the economy received an unambiguous tax cut in January 1983, income tax revenues climbed dramatically, increasing by more than 54 percent by 1989 (28 percent after adjusting for inflation).
