Trump’s Deregulating and It’s Working – Why Would Congress Reimpose Any of It?

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

We ALL Would Be

President Donald Trump’s Administration – is a tax-and-regulations-cutting machine. Less government nigh everywhere – as far as the eye can see.

And the direct results – have been outstanding.

To wit: This (in this instance with the glorious assistance of the Republicans – and only the Republicans – in Congress):

Harvard Has No Use
for the ‘Genuine’ Key

We have been saying it for years and years – College IS for Dummies.

Universities charge exorbitant amounts of coin – to further indoctrinate their victims in ignorance and hardcore Leftism (please pardon the redundancy).

But a cursory glance at the average college course schedule – demonstrates the inanity on parade.

The Real Protectionism: Defending DC’s Crony Globalist Fake ‘Free Trade’

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

For a Change.

President Donald Trump wants to fix the nightmare mess that is DC’s crony globalist fake “free trade” – and conservatives all across the nation are up in arms.

Calm down, Leftists – “up in arms” is a figure of speech. Were this an actual emergency – like, say, Democrat murder capitols like Chicago or Baltimore or a Bernie Sanders supporter attempting to murder baseball-playing Republican Congressmen and their staffers – we would let you know. We always do – not that you ever do anything helpful about any of it.

A lot of really great conservative thinkers – are very, very angry with Trump’s tariff threat.

(Please note: They at this point remain threats – not tariffs. Read “The Art of the Deal.” Very often you threaten, but never enact – the threat is enough to better the deal.)

And as much as I like and respect so very many of these conservative thinkers – they are all very, very wrong.

A lot of what you get from them is a lot of talking points – spewed in Tourette’s Syndrome fashion. “Tariffs are taxes!” “Protectionism is bad!” “Free trade is good!”

The very obvious secret is – I agree with all of these points.

The other very obvious secret is – none of them apply to what DC pretends is “free trade.” More

President Trump: The Federal Government Should Spend Zero Dollars on Infrastructure

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

May We Please FINALLY Figure This Out?

I supported and generally support President Donald Trump – predicated largely on what he campaigned and on his doing that on which he campaigned.

And I am mostly pleased that the latter has hued to the former so historically closely.

Contrary to prevailing sentiment – we Trump supporters do not like every single thing Trump proposed or proposes. Nor do we refrain from vocalizing said disdain when it arises.

To wit: I think each and every gun law – is stupid (not to mention unconstitutional). Blaming the actions of people on inanimate objects – is stupid. Passing laws in an attempt to preemptively affect the behavior of lawbreakers – is stupid.

Trump has discussed several particularly stupid gun proposals – which is actually in violation of Campaign Trump’s campaigning – and I have had zero problem publicly writing and saying that they are stupid. More

The Left’s Fake Grassroots: The Best Big Money Can Buy

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

How Organic

The Left is excellent at faking things. They long ago had to become so – because Reality so implicitly contradicts everything for which they stand.

The atrocity shooting at Florida’s Parkland High School – has become a crass political opportunity for the cold, callous Left. Because they never allow a crisis to go to waste.

The Left ignores the fact that the Left themselves have banned guns from schools – and ever since the overwhelming majority of mass shootings occur in schools.

The Left ignores the fact that prior to their stupid Gun Free Zones – guns were almost ubiquitous at very many schools, and there were almost no school shootings.

The Left ignores the fact that four cops showed up at the school during the shooting – and then failed to enter the school and deal with the shooter.

The Left ignores the fact that everyone and their mother warned government at all levels that this insane person was an insane person – and government at all levels did nothing. More

Immigration, Internet,…: The Left’s Warped, Ridiculously Fake Federalism

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

The Left’s Bizarro ‘Federalism’

Our nation’s Founding Fathers – were geniuses. They overcame the unbelievable handicaps of being white, male and by nigh all accounts all heterosexual – to create the greatest form of government in the history of personkind.

Amongst their very many brilliances – was federalism. The concept of a very limited federal government with expressed powers – leaving the unexpressed and all the rest to the states and the people. The Ninth and Tenth Amendments to our Constitution help lock down this federalism.

The Founders knew they weren’t perfect (though they came exquisitely close). Their federalism allows states to experiment with new ideas of how to govern. And if the citizens of one state don’t like what that state is doing – they can move to another. Yet another Founder deference to the governed.

This state-by-state-experimentation is what Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis later called “laboratories of democracy.” (We’ll ignore Brandeis’ one error – we’re a republic, not a democracy – and give him copious credit for grasping the federalism concept.)

The Left, of course, loathes federalism. Nationally syndicated radio host Chris Plante rightly observes that the Left wants to mandate that which they do not want to ban – and ban that which they do not want to mandate. More

Silicon Valley: If Something on the Internet Is Free – You’re the Product

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Always and Everywhere

The Internet is a wonderment. Perhaps the greatest feat of human achievement…ever.

Of course things like penicillin and the polio vaccine are wonderments – and amazing betterments of man. But they were rifle shots. The Internet is an omni-directional automatic shotgun. With benefits redounding up and down – in 360 degrees.

To name but one medical benefit: Soon doctors will be able to perform examinations, surgeries and other procedures…remotely. Doctors Without Borders…on steroids. Dedicated broadband connections will allow cameras and robot hands to be controlled by doctors…from anywhere. Delivering lifesaving care…anywhere and everywhere.

America’s Internet Service Providers (ISPs) – are the world’s leaders. They have connected the vast land mass that is America (it is much easier to connect tinier places). And rapidly delivered us from ridiculously slow 14K dial-up – to 1GB of lightening speed…and beyond.

And we are on the verge of the Fifth Generation (5G) wireless network – which really should be called Second Level. This transformation will infinitely expand our Internet – and our concept of the Internet. And deliver us countless things we can not yet even conceive. More

Democrats Have Totally Given Up on Legislation and Legislating

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

If You Can Keep It…

A half-century-plus of government school victims has rendered We the People collectively, increasingly less and less capable of walking and chewing gum simultaneously.

Let alone understanding our republican government – and how things are actually supposed to work.

For everyone who succumbed to their government indoctrinations – behold an introduction to how our democratic republic is supposed to work.

We have three branches of government – the Legislative, the Executive and the Judicial. Short version:

The Legislative – writes and passes legislation. We elect the legislators – which purports to give us direct say over what laws govern us.

The Executive is headed by the President – whom we also elect. The President signs the legislation – at which point they become laws. The Executive Branch – then executes these laws. No more – and no less. If there is no precedent legislation – regulations from the Executive…are illegal. More

Super Bowl: NFL Prohibits Another TV Ad – Blocking for North Korea’s Communist Kim Jong-Un

Get Hammered – and Sick-eled

National Football League (NFL) Commissioner Roger Goodell – has had a bit of a bad decade.

(So bad – that his ex-television-news-host wife was caught with a fake Twitter account Tweeting in his defense.)

Goodell began this time frame under-reacting to legitimate problems like the New England Patriots’ Spygate.

Goodell then woefully mishandled the break of the chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) concussion story.

Goodell then tried to play catchup – by ridiculously overreacting to non-stories like the Patriots’ Deflategate.

While under-reacting to woeful off-the-field player behavior. Epitomized by his under-punishment of then-Baltimore Raven running back Ray Rice for beating his fiancé – only to then be embarrassed when video of one violent incident became public.

Then came the player protests of the National Anthem, the United States flag and the nation.

It all started during last year’s preseason – as a one-man-gang by then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Who – rather than standing respectfully during the Anthem – kneeled.   Kaepernick’s protest quickly spread – amongst his teammates, and throughout the league.

About all of which Goodell did…nothing. More

Ending DC’s Titanically Stupid Fake ‘Free Trade’ Is the Far More Important Policy Change

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

For an Exciting
Change of DC Pace

First – a bit of disclosure.

DC is a fairly small, very expensive place. If you’re involved in politics – you know a whole lot of other people who are involved in politics.

With many – you disagree on a lot of stuff, and agree on a little. With many others – you agree on a lot of stuff, and disagree on a little.

The old saw is: If you want to see someone with whom you agree on everything – look in a mirror. And even then, with a lot of these people,….

We run a joint called Less Government – so you can guess on which side of the ideological aisle we reside. We want less government – in all things, everywhere.

We don’t fall prey to short-term thinking. For instance, it took us more than a century to get into this $4-trillion-per-year federal mess – we ain’t correcting wholly, instantaneously. More
