Posted on

It’s always helpful when advocates for ever larger government remind us of how utterly unnecessary bigger government – and its advocates – actually are. We just saw – and will soon see again – a percentage of the federal government’s approximately 850,000 “non-essential personnel” get furloughed due to a government shutdown. I don’t call them […]

Posted on

American colleges have for decades now been ongoing, rolling disaster areas. They are Leftist claptrap outfits that take mind-numbed victims of calamitous government primary and secondary education – and radicalize them to join the fight to end Western Civilization.

The Right Should Emulate the Lefts Incrementalism

I am for MUCH less government than the massive, nauseating amounts with which we are currently befouled. The federal government alone spends MORE THAN FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR.
