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

No More Cronyism: Let’s Have Government Acknowledge the Paperless 21st Century

“We’re from the Government – and We’re Here to Help”

You have, of course, spent the last decade-plus watching the entirety of the actually-private sector “go paperless.”

Meaning rather than continue to snail mail your bills and statements and other correspondence – you can choose instead to communicate with these companies electronically.

You know, because we’ve invented this thing called the Internet. And with it comes cool interactive tools like email and websites. You can stop paying for envelopes and stamps – and yet actually pay your bills, gather information and have your questions answered…exponentially faster.

God bless capitalism.

But enter the archenemy of capitalism – government. Specifically in this instance – The Feds.

Under our Orwellian government, all private companies are equal – but some are more equal than others. Some suffer under whole additional swaths of regulations that others do not. More

Fake News: When Leftist Foundations Fund Activism Posing as Journalism

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Foundations Edition

#FakeNews is currently in the news “big league.”  Thanks to ridiculous Buzzfeed’s ridiculous release of a 35-page Donald Trump disinformation litany (to which we absolutely will not link).  A litany so fake – it was printed under the heading “Disinformation.”  But ridiculous Buzzfeed released it anyway.

This litany had been floating around Washington, D.C. for months – untouched by DC’s alleged journalists.  But DC’s alleged journalists – once Buzzfeed broke the seal – piled in behind them like Japanese subway commuters to further amplify it.

This is by no means the only flavor of fake news that exists.  Another long-standing-though-less-ballyhooed version is when Leftist foundations fund Leftist activists – who generate “news” that the media then mindlessly parrot, without any mention of the mammoth money behind it.  All the while, the media roundly lambastes much tinier right-of-center efforts to tell their story.

For instance: You’ve of course heard of the libertarian Koch brothers – because the media have made sure of it.  The Kochs donate money to groups to advance free markets – and the media goes bananas reporting about it.  But the Koch coin isn’t even close to the real story: More

Shocker: Government Bureaucrats Don’t Understand Business or Economics

Sadly, Epidemic Upon Epidemic

It is one of the many, many reasons our nation’s Founding Fathers profoundly limited government. They trusted businessmen much more than they trusted government bureaucrats. Because they knew: Those who can – do. Those who can’t – regulate those who can.

The Founders knew the private sector is better, stronger and faster than government. And smarter. And better behaved. And better intended. And….

The Founders only established the federal government. But they understood that these government limitations exist at every level – and thus limitations should be imposed on every level. State and local bureaucrats are just as inferior to private businessman – and should be just as restricted.

But as we all know, since the Founders’ glorious creation governments at all levels have grown exponentially – and continue to grow inexorably. And as governments have achieved their now titanic proportions, they have attracted more and more bureaucrats that are increasingly hostile to the private sector. They don’t know it or understand it – but they don’t like it. And they use all the arms of the giant governments at their disposal as weapons to attack the businesses and businessmen they loathe.

To wit: New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Who REALLY has it in for petroleum companies. And has spent the last several years placing his oversized government power in the service of environmental radicals – to persecute them:

“(E)nvironmental activists…are now accusing publicly traded oil and gas corporations of hiding the true costs of climate change to their businesses. The effort threatens to change the current focus of financial reporting—which is to provide salient information to investors—and instead serve the policy agenda of liberal activists…. More

The Only Climate Change Threat to Companies – Comes from Government

Consistency – Thy Name is Left

Environmentalists have long been called “watermelons” – green on the outside, red on the in. Red – as in Communist. Earth Day – also happens to be Soviet Communist Vladimir Lenin’s birthday. A coincidence, surely.

Environmentalism has always been about ending capitalism. Exaggeration?

130 Environmental Groups Call For An End To Capitalism

Not so much. But they’re better-than-average messengers of their terrible message, so they are always looking for variations on their theme. Even if consecutive variations – are completely contradictory. Flash back to the 1970s, and you get this:

The 1970’s Global Cooling Compilation – Looks Much Like Today: “A compilation of news articles on the global cooling scare of the 1970’s.”

Flash back forward – and it is suddenly, magically Global Warming. Which – when the planet stopped warming nearly two decades ago – suddenly, magically became Climate Change. All (totally irreconcilable) variations on a theme. It’s the Greatest Scam on Earth.

The ultimate goal remains the same – to end capitalism. And the fuel of capitalism – is oil. Gut the oil industry – and you undermine the entire capitalist system. And they are always looking for new and inventive ways to do it. To wit: More
