Skip to comments.Two Killers Died Yesterday! (Kevorkian/Keynes)

Two separate-but-equal promoters of death, themselves, died Friday, June 3rd 2011. One, the infamous Jack Kevorkian, the famed "Doctor of Death" assisted suicide advocate, died peacefully at home at the age of 83, and the other, John Maynard Keynes, famed British economist, who posthumously promoted the death of the United States' economy with his Keynesian Economic Theories, who physically died in the flesh in 1946, officially and finally died at age 128 on Friday with the release of the Labor Department's dreadful unemployment report, (only 54,000 jobs added of 200,000 expected, and unemployment rate actually going UP to 9.1) proving the 800 billion dollar Keynesian stimulus program that the US Congress passed in the winter of 2009 was an absolute, total failure, thus officially ending Keynes' time here on earth.
Kevorkian assisted in the deaths of 130 terminally ill people by attaching them to a euthanasia device that he had made. The individual then pushed a button releasing drugs or chemicals that would end their own life. Keynesian Economics assisted in the deaths of economies by allowing the country to borrow money it didn't have, and release it into the economy, to "prime the pump" and theoretically get a weak economy moving.

On Friday, however, it was devastatingly clear that, if an 800 BILLION DOLLAR Keynesian stimulus couldn't turn an economy around, NO Keynesian stimulus could.
Both leave legacies of destruction, but the more sympathetic and caring of the two was obviously Kevorkian. The people who willingly went to him knew what his goal was, and what the likely result would be. But the people going to Keynesian Economics do not understand what the result will be, because the stated goal is not the same as the eventual result. Such deception is evil, and thankfully, gone from this planet forever.
Won't it be interesting to see if rumors of either of these two actually "not being dead" will surface in the future! Maybe we'll soon see in the National Enquirer "Is Kevorkian Alive" headlines. ""Doctor Death, living in private island, happily killing thankful natives"! We will have to wait and see.
But thankfully no rumors of Keynesian Theory still surviving will occur, that would be simply be unthinkable! When the economy, boosted by the largest Keynesian economic stimulus ever seen by mankind only a year and a half ago, thought by some to be in recovery, was shown to be the opposite by the unemployment rate actually going UP, an absolute sign of economic decline...surely no rumors of a "living" Keynes will occur!
John Maynard Keynes Keynesian economics
You mean he died again. Keynes has had more funerals than I can count. The truth is that for the political class a theory claiming all ills can be cured with government spending is just too sweet to ever give up. It won’t be six months before they are all howling for more “stimulus”.
Keynesian economics, just like socialism, communism, marxism, et al is not dead, and it will never die as long as there is one ignorant libtard “intellectual” willing to extol its “theoretical brilliance”, while simultaneously complaining that it had not been implemented correctly, given enough time, or provided enough spending when it fails miserably in reality.
Don’t forget Matt Dillon. Every week for 20 years he’d gun down some random jaywalker on Dodge’s City’s main street.
“In the long run, we’re all dead.”
Keynesian economics benefits the government at the expense of the people, therefore, similarly to currency devaluation, it is favored by politicians and will never die.
-- Richard Nixon
The punch line is Keynes is now dead and we are living in his long run.
Uh, no, he died in a hospital in Royal Oak, MI. He died from pulmonary embolism, while hospitalized for 2 weeks with kidney and respiratory problems. He also had cancer. So much for taking a dose of his own medicine.
Most of Kervorkian’s victims were not terminally ill.
-- George W. Bush
The Krugster is not going to be happy with this article.
Damn, heard on Fox right as news came out that it was a peaceful death, and I thought they said at home. they said he died peacefully as Bach was played, etc. Just changed it on the website, thanks for the heads up.
Kervorkian was a serial killer who used a controversial issue as a mantle to carry out his crimes.
I heard early in his career he took pictured of peoples eyes as they were dying...very serial killer-like fetish.
And take a look at his paintings:
The guy named one of his devices the 'Thanatotron'. Derived from the Greek Thanatos, which means death.
Referencing your statement regarding picture taking, I believe that profilers would call the photos 'souvenirs'. Which is a hallmark of serial killers. They relive their crimes with them.
I will not be shedding any tears, that's for sure.
The Keynesian zombie will keep coming to life like the undead in a bad horror movie as long as one liberal and a few RINOs are in Congress. Keynesian economics should have died with the stagflation of the late 1970s when the long touted Keynesian idea of inflation having an inverse relationship with unemployment (Phillips Curve) was proven flat wrong. Jimmy Carter’s Keynesian stimulus plans fueled an inflationary spiral pushing inflation to nearly 20%.
