If a Great Many Trees Fall – and They Don’t Have to – DC Will Mandate They Fall Anyway

So Many Needless Deaths

Someone get me the environmentalists. I have something on which we can work…together.

To the fainting couches….

Ok. Imagine if you will all the forests that must fall – to feed the government and their countless printed extrusions.

Government spends $4 trillion per annum. That’s a lot of printed currency. And an inconceivable amount of attending paperwork. I mean, the loan documents alone….

In the last year pre-President Donald Trump – government regulated at a cost of $2 trillion more. That is an unfathomable number of printed directive pages – as the Leviathan orders us around hither and yon.

The hundreds of just federal government agencies, departments, commissions and boards extrude all sorts of regs, fiats, reports, memoranda and a whole host of other parchments and documents. More

Oh Look – Yet Another Bogus Harvard ‘Study’: Climate Change Edition (Again)

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.

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

EPA Administrator Pruitt Needs to Stop Needing the Left to Like Him

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

They’re Just Not That Into You

During the awful epoch that was the Barack Obama Administration, Scott Pruitt was a fearless free market champion.

Pruitt was in 2010 elected Oklahoma’s Attorney General. And in that capacity he spent a lot of his time fending off the Obama Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with a whip and a chair.

As an Attorney General, Pruitt’s whip and chair – were lawsuits. Lots and lots of lawsuits. Fourteen, all told. Do not be mistaken – Pruitt was not overly litigious. The Obama EPA was just that obnoxiously overreaching.

The Obama EPA was actually even more obnoxiously overreaching than that. I’m guessing Pruitt was limited to just the fourteen – by a lack of sufficient resources.

Pruitt was doing God’s work – tending His freedom fields.

So of course the Left loathed him.

Then happened one the most miraculous miracles in the history of miraculous miracles – Donald Trump won the presidency. And immediately began enacting his Undo-the-Obama-Administration-Agenda agenda. 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

EPA Secretary Pruitt: The Eco-Nuts Will Never, Never Like You

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Remember Who Your Actual Friends Are – and the Fact That You’re Not a Radical Leftist

In the great Aaron Sorkin television creation “West Wing,” very accomplished fake president Jed Bartlet goes in for a brief bit of therapy. During which the following exchange occurs:

Bartlet: “It’s not good for a person to keep setting goals?”

Psychologist: “It probably is. But it’s tricky for somebody who is still trying to get his father to stop hitting him….”

Bartlet: “I’m not trying to get my father to like me.”

Psychologist: “Good. Because it’s never, never going to happen.”

It is of this conversation that I thought when I read of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Secretary Scott Pruitt’s possible way-overkill cleanup plan for a Saint Louis, Missouri Superfund site. 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
