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.

FERC: A Rare Dud in Trump’s Otherwise Outstanding Cabinet Selections

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

ICYMI: Obama’s Gone

President Donald Trump has populated his version of the vast, expansive Executive Branch – with a whole lot of extraordinarily good people. Who have spent their time thus far – reducing mightily the vast expansiveness of the Executive Branch.

One aspect of Trump’s excellent hiring process – is there is a whole lot less of it.

Trump: ‘We Don’t Want to Fill All the Vacancies’ in the Federal Government: “‘We don’t need so many people coming to work,’ Trump told the Washington Examiner in an interview at the White House Wednesday. ‘When they say about putting people in, there are so many jobs in Washington, we don’t want so many jobs. You don’t need all of those people.’”

Indeed we do not.

And Trump’s budgets – have called for further reductions in the size of the ridiculously huge Leviathan – and its many bureaucrat minions.

But unfortunately, the federal government – is still incredibly vast and expansive. And even with less people – you still have to hire a LOT of people.

And as great as Trump has been in his hiring choices – no one is perfect. No one bats 1.000 with that many at bats. More

Government and Crony Contractors – You’d Better Shop Around

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Perhaps We Could Look Elsewhere

President Donald Trump inherited a whole lot of awful Barack Obama policy. Unfortunately, much of that awful policy has since Trump’s inauguration continued to lurch forward. Due to the awfulness of Deep State bureaucrats – and inherent bureaucratic inertia.

In many instances – Trump has put a stop to it. In many other instances, unfortunately, he has not.

Thanks to Obama, cronyism has become all-but-engrained in the DC DNA. They were the Crony Administration.

So not only is the government doing way too many awful things – they are paying Leftist cronies to do way too much of it.

There is even residual cronyism – in some things I actually like the government doing. Like privatizing space exploration. More

The Trump Administration Needs to Stop Continuing Obama’s Big Government Policies

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

And Pass the Salt….

We will keep saying it – for as long as it continues to be true. The biggest mistake President Donald Trump has made – has been not making many, MANY more people leave Washington, D.C. since his arrival.

Personnel is policy.

Trump’s ship of state remains egregiously over-encumbered with residual Obama barnacles. And these crustaceans continue to engage in policy obstructions and extrusions – that are antithetical to the Good Ship Trump’s mission of less government mercy.

It’s been called the Deep State – but really these bureaucratic beasts are doing their damage just below the waterline. More

President Trump Needs to Dump the Obama Holdover Puerto Rico ‘Fiscal Control’ Board

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

May We Please Finally
Allow the Puerto Ricans
Out from Under This Guy?

We have spent the last year-plus repeatedly stating that President Donald Trump’s biggest error – has been not having made many, many more people leave government after he arrived.

This is true not just in Washington, D.C. – but anywhere on the planet the federal Leviathan rears an ugly tentacle.

Like, say, in Puerto Rico. With it’s Barack Obama-seven-appointee-laden, ridiculously named “Fiscal Control” Board.

Noted fiscal prudent Obama’s Puerto Rican “Fiscal Control” Board exhibits fiscal control – the way Obama’s “Affordable Health Care” Act makes health care affordable.

They of course do not. Obama’s “Fiscal Control” Board is just more DC doublespeak – but in the Caribbean, with a tan.

The Board’s latest demonstration of its utter unfamiliarity with its charge? More

California Climate Freaks Aren’t So Freaky When They Have to Pay for the Freakiness

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Leftism Is Indeed

Let us begin this exercise with me reiterating my wholehearted and total support of California’s effort to secede from the United States.

They can take their Sanctuary State status, their resulting Third World culture-and-wealth gap, their $1.3 trillion total governments’ debt, their massive government employee pension shortfalls, their wildfire-exacerbating environmental laws and the rest of their Hollywood, Silicon Valley uber-Left nonsense – and get out.

Oh – and don’t forget to take with you your fifty-five Electoral College votes with you. (Which will make our presidential elections going forward a whole lot more American.)

Yet another addition-by-subtraction we will thoroughly enjoy – is the absence of the California Left’s utter hypocrisy and thorough dishonesty when it comes to…everything. More

When ‘Deregulation’ – Is Actually More Government and a Constitutional Violation

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

In Sheep’s Clothing

I have a bit of Economics 101 knowledge for the collectivist Left.

You know who I mean. The Bernie Sanders “‘Free’ Health Care and ‘Free’ College for All” types.

The people who think the United States’ $18 trillion economy magically came into being – totally devoid of the profit motive.

That our 300+ million people are willing to put in 40-60 hours a week (and often more) – with no thought at all of remuneration.

That our nation’s job providers will hire our job seekers – not thinking at all of making sure their businesses can pay for them…let alone make some coin above and beyond their wages and benefits.

That our nation’s investors will put at risk their coin – without any interest in trying to get a positive monetary return on said investments. More

Elon Musk: The Welfare King’s Latest Failures – and Government Cronyism Cover Ups

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

A New Administration –
A New Reckoning

Elon Musk is the welfare God-King. He is an all-time champion of government money reception – $5 billion and counting.

And as you know, Ladies and Gentlemen: Government money isn’t government money – until they have first taken it from us. It’s actually our money.

And with that government bureaucrat investment (of our money) – comes government bureaucrat protection of their investment.

If Musk messes up – it looks really bad for the bureaucrats who have given him, again, FIVE BILLION DOLLARS of OUR money.

So the bureaucrats will spend hundreds of millions of dollars (or more) – of OUR money – so as to cover up Musk’s mess ups.

Because his mess ups – are their mess ups. And may lead to the people footing the crony bill – that, again, is us – asking why the heck Musk received FIVE BILLION DOLLARS of our money. More

Yet Another Reason Government Shouldn’t Be Involved in Energy

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Because…Humans. And Humans’ Nature

There are lots and LOTS of reasons government shouldn’t choose which energy sources We the People use.

Begin with – the marketplace is far and away the best decider. Of any and everything – always and forever.

Items like oil and coal didn’t instantaneously become hugely popular because of government mandates. They became hugely popular – because they produce massive amounts of energy per dollar spent.

Items like oil and coil have remained hugely popular – because they still produce massive amounts of energy per dollar spent. More

Steyer-Money Environmentalists Confuse Vancouvers

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Ummm…Wrong Country

When Leftists REALLY want to “make a difference” – but they’re confused as to where they wish to do so.


Leftists are…a bit challenged when it comes to facts and details. Which makes their extreme passion about their ideology – and insistently imposing it upon all of us – at once amusing…and dangerous.

One of the Leftists’ MANY shortcomings – is geography. Far too frequently, they simply do not know where there are. Or they aren’t where they think they are. Or they don’t know where they are supposed to be. To wit:

Oops: Chicago Occupiers Try to Protest Rush Limbaugh’s ‘Office’…but Get City Wrong:

“A crowd of Occupy (Wall Street) protesters in Chicago (Illinois) descended on Rush Limbaugh’s ‘office’ Thursday to air their grievances about the conservative radio host.

“The problem? Despite their references to ‘Rush’s office building’ and ‘Rush Limbaugh’s studio,’ they weren’t in the right place – not by more than 1,000 miles.”

Limbaugh broadcasts…out of south Florida.

Also, Leftists apparently don’t understand the concept of radio syndication. More
