Most unfortunately, governments at every level – federal, state and local – have grown to exceedingly obese size and status. Making them corpulent targets for bribes from monster companies – to ladle government gravy atop the monster companies’ biscuits. Governments are monstrously outsized.  So too, of course, is the cronyism monster companies seek and are […]

Judicial activism has been a huge problem for decades.  Judges and Justices ignoring the Constitution and the law – and instead imposing their personal policy preferences.  Pretending they aren’t part of the Judicial Branch – but of the Legislative.

It is becoming more than a mite tiresome – dealing with the knee-jerk, talking-point-screeching alleged “free traders.” Who oppose President Donald Trump attempting to alter the ongoing, rolling nightmare mess that is this country’s global trade policy.

We have in the Constitution a little thing called the Fourth Amendment: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable […]
