Government by ideological fantasy – at the expense of actual facts – is a terrible idea. So too is government of, by and for the donors. Far too often government regulators and bureaucrats ignore Reality – to tilt at ideological windmills. And WAY too often government becomes […]
Raise your hand if you think government at any level – federal, state, local – is suffering from a dearth of our money. Or omni-directional ways to take it from us. I don’t see…any arms extended upward. Strange.
Back when I was a musician – writing songs rather than things like this – I was just about the only one I knew who wasn’t stealing music via the heist website Napster. And I lived […]
President Barack Obama has dramatically ramped up the Washington, D.C., giant Crony-fest. Where economic sectors and companies Obama and his Democrats like get the gold mine – and the rest of us get the shaft. For […]
The political definition of Cronyism is: government policy that favors one or more specific beneficiaries – at the expense of everyone else. To wit: $80 billion of the 2009 “Stimulus” was wasted on “green energy” […]
The media are, of course, almost uniformly Leftist – which means they just about always toe the Party line. Including the belief that in order to help the poor – government must perpetually grow. Of course we conservatives also […]
The Left loathes business and businesses. But business and businesses are mere symptoms of the disease they REALLY loathe – capitalism. For which they bizarrely think the “cure” – is uber-failed […]
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So too a patent “troll.”
Behold Mark Cuban – a wildly successful entrepreneur. He in 1995 co-founded Broadcast.com – and in 1999 Yahoo! […]
Washington, D.C. is a dysfunctional mess. Just about nothing gets done unless it absolutely has to get done. And when things do get done – they are just about always horrible. Bigger and bigger government, over […]
The Donald Trump presidential phenomenon rolls on. Higher and higher his primary polls climb. He’s caught the irretrievably corrupt Hillary Clinton in a prospective general election matchup.
The DC Establishment – made up of both Democrats […]
The entirety of the United States is now a federal disaster area – rendered thus by Washington, D.C. Unlike areas hit by hurricanes, tornadoes and other acts of God – our cataclysm is entirely man-made. Decades of […]
There are few things more dangerous to private enterprise than government bureaucrats with time on their hands. And since most bureaucrats have no legitimate reason for being – they have lots and lots of time […]
The Founding Fathers knew what Lord John Dalberg-Acton knew. And far too few of us know the totality of Lord Acton’s sage sentiment: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always […]
Clint Eastwood’s iconic Dirty Harry Callahan uttered one of the greatest movie lines of all time: “A man’s got to know his limitations.” It would appear no one in Washington, D.C. has ever heard of Harry or […]
The following is in response to Mytheos Holt’s Townhall “The Three Dumbest ‘Conservative’ Objections to Patent Reform.”
The Left, along with huge Leftist companies, are pushing to fundamentally transform – radically undermine – the […]
One of the advantages Big Government advocates have in their efforts to end the private sector – is the size of the victim. A $17-trillion-a-year economy is so huge – it almost always takes a […]
It is – sadly, always – a clash of two titans. The private sector and government. There are claims made that it is – or can be – a symbiotic relationship. The free market […]
Remember that recurring Saturday Night Live skit where the late Chris Farley was the ultimate fanboy – interviewing those for whom he was the ultimate fanboy?
Sniveling and sweaty, he would bring up […]
Thank goodness we last November gave the Republicans the Senate majority.
Who besides the GOP would resurrect government money for ridiculous “green” “energy” – which is neither green nor energy? To the tune of […]
Just about all of us have been there. Dating someone – and it isn’t working. You don’t get along. The person doesn’t give you what you want. You aren’t happy.
You each try to change […]
Democrat Congresswoman Anna Eshoo just penned an editorial for the San Francisco Chronicle. That has the patchouli whiff of her writing while sitting at the corner of Haight and Ashbury – in August 1968. It […]
We are a nation founded upon and (allegedly) governed by words. Beginning with – specifically, foundational-ly – the Constitution. Every syllable was by our Founding Fathers debated and carefully crafted. To ensure a limited, enumerated […]
A computer programming maxim is “Garbage in – garbage out.”
(C)omputers, since they operate by logical processes, will unquestioningly process unintended, even nonsensical, input data (“garbage in”) and produce undesired, often nonsensical, output (“garbage out”).
No one or nothing produces more garbage than government. And their trash […]
Look, we get why Democrats want to use the giant-ness of the federal government to punish their enemies and reward their friends. Crony Socialism is in their ideological DNA. And they grow government […]
The Barack Obama Administration is – even more than any of its predecessors – the Crony Socialism Administration.
No prior presidency has used and abused government to do more for its friends – and more […]
