If that is so, then a "positive direction" for both Roosevelt and O'Reilly apparently means tax-and-spend Big Government "Progressivism." This is not what anyone would expect from Bill O'Reilly as a "conservative," let alone a flagship conservative of the hated Fox News Network.

the humorous or sarcastic use of words or ideas, implying the opposite of what they mean.

And then, again, still unintroitive, addresses the Witches:—

Now, Keynes famously said, "In the long run we are all dead." We can take from this the lesson that Say's Law as a "long-run" truth is of no significance.

a word that sounds like the noise it is describing: 'splash', 'bang', 'pop', 'hiss'.

Thus, Alan Reynolds, of the , discusses some assertions by a columnist:

Indeed, the motive to abandon productive "cultural" activities will be stronger in a democracy, since it quickly becomes apparent that profit can be obtained more easily from political activity than from economic production, when economic activity itself is burdened with increasing taxes, mandates, and regulations.
