Talking Turkey: National Security – and Growing Our Own Food

Turkey: Thursday is, of course, Thanksgiving. A holiday which celebrates our inconceivable good fortune and tremendous bounty. Most of us celebrate our good fortune – by joining with family and friends to consume massive amounts of bounty. We (should) do so in large part in remembrance of how hard it was for the Pilgrims to […]

The Private Sector Solves Problems – Government Exacerbates and Creates Them

The seven years of the President Barack Obama Administration have provided us with two diametrically opposite things. The government time and again failing utterly in just about everything it tries to do – economic recovery, job creation, health care, defense of our borders and our nation, budget stewardship,…. Meanwhile, the Administration and its Democrat Party […]

Government Choosing Businesses for Preference or Punishment is Always Wrong

President Barack Obama has dramatically ramped up the Washington, D.C., giant Crony-fest. Where economic sectors and companies Obama and his Democrats like get the gold mine – and the rest of us get the shaft. For instance, there was $80 billion for “green energy” in the awful 2009 “Stimulus” bill – 80% of that coin […]

Facebook Should Reverse Its Support of Government’s Net Neutrality Fantasy

Network Neutrality is a unilateral and completely unnecessary government-intrusion-and-imposition on the entirety of the Internet – and the trillions-of-dollars-economy that has arisen around it. Net Neutrality is one fantasy – based upon another. Fantasy: The evil Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will – at some indeterminate point in the future – start blocking you from getting […]

Cronyism: For the Likes of Google, It is Really, REALLY Good to be a Friend of Obama

If President Barack Obama doesn’t like you – his government tends to make your life really, REALLY miserable. Ask Tea Party and conservative groups – when Obama’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) isn’t harassing them, it is allowing them to endlessly languish unapproved. Ask reporters who report things in ways the President doesn’t like – his […]

Hey Wall Street Journal: Open Borders-Amnesty is the Hugest Cronyism of All

The political definition of Cronyism is: government policy that favors one or more specific beneficiaries – at the expense of everyone else. To wit: $80 billion of the 2009 “Stimulus” was wasted on “green energy” companies – 80% of whom were Barack Obama donors. Amongst the parade of horribles contained therein: the government took money […]

Hillary Clinton Misunderstands (Misrepresents?) How Government Pummels the Economy

Hillary Clinton is going to be the Democrat presidential nominee. (Sorry, Bernie Sanders fans. You too, Martin O’Malley fans – both of you.)   Unless – and likely even if – she is indicted for her latest foray into self-defined ethics. She has in her past more than a quarter century of…questionable statements, decisions and actions […]
