When a woman finally is elected president, will she hold forth from the Ova Office?
Ephemeralization offers an alternative explanation for the puzzling growth slowdown of the last decade. Every time the software industry displaces a special purpose device, our standard of living improves but measured GDP falls. If what you care about is government revenue, this point might not matter much—it’s hard to tax something if no one’s paying for it. But the real lesson here may not be that the American economy is stagnating, but rather that the government is bad at measuring improvements in our standard of living that come from the software industry.

Who do these people are who think they have a right to food, and housing and jobs and such that allows them to live and stuff? Embryos?
I'm looking forward to VP wannabe Ryan's "Jobs for embryos in case of rape or danger to the health of the mother" proposal: "Well, yes, the mother may die, but with my plan, every discriminated-against, motherless embryo will have a job waiting - if it achieves birth from a dead mother and survives months on its own without a so-called 'safety net' to support it."
Romney would suggest adding a provision to his running mate's proposal that any mothers who may die in the process of delivering jobs-acceptable babies be granted postmortem nontransferable social security benefits.
