Government is an organism just like any other. Just like any other, its first priority is self-preservation. Its second is self-expansion.
Government expansion requires money. Government doesn’t earn any of its own – it must take ours. Hence – taxes. Since governments’ desire to grow [...]
Conservatives and Libertarians inherently have little faith or trust in government. We know the institution is inherently flawed – and self-serving.
Government violates the Wallet Rule. Which is:
You go out on a Friday night with your wallet. You go out the [...]
Jeff Bezos is a transcendent Internet entrepreneur. He understands the way the Web works in a way few others do. He sees around the curve of the Earth just a little further than do most of us.
To wit: Bezos started in 1994 Amazon.com.
(T)he world’s largest [...]
Perhaps lost in the incessant, rolling bad news shuffle that is the Barack Obama Administration are the ongoing Hong Kong protests of rising Chinese domestic interference.
This is exactly the sort of thing we freedom lovers and free marketeers feared when in 1984 the [...]
We had some inordinately interesting recent Congressional testimony from David L. Hunt – the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’s Inspector General (IG).
IG Hunt appeared on Wednesday, September 17 before the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology. The topic? “Oversight of FCC Budget and Management.”
It is yet another Barack Obama Administration pledge now relegated to the ash heap of Mendacious History.

Government growth is a self-perpetuating and self-fulfilling prophecy.
Government is just another organism. Like any organism, its first instinct is self-preservation. Government – and its remora advocates – marshals all their forces should anyone suggest any program be reduced even slightly. [...]
Cronyism. Or Crony Capitalism. It’s actually Crony Socialism – because it actually has nothing to do with capitalism.
Crony Socialism is not an unfettered free market where the best ideas and companies win. It’s the government warping and distorting the market: favoring with absurdly [...]
The Left consists of two groups of people running on two parallel yet very different paths to Oblivion.
The Left’s leadership knows their Huge Government ideas are absurd and don’t work – but they’ll be in charge after the collapse they induce so they’re [...]
When words no longer have specific meanings – they no longer have any meaning. Words represent concepts – we must all agree on their definitions or we lose their concept representation value. If words’ definitions are warped – their usefulness is eviscerated.
If “up” [...]
As the great P.J. O’Rourke said:
“Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.”
We have to give the Feds some – the Constitution requires it. But in 1984 the Supreme Court threw wide [...]
Is the Barack Obama Administration more than a mite out of control when it comes to imposing new regulations? Indeed so.
Regulations Under Obama Cost Households $14,768 Yearly
Obama Hits the Gas on Regs
Regulations Take $1.8 Trillion Bite Out of Economy
Is the Obama Administration more [...]
The Buffett Rule is part of a tax plan proposed by President Barack Obama in 2011. The tax plan would apply a minimum tax rate of 30 percent on individuals making more than a million dollars a year.
Remember for whom it’s named?
The Buffett Rule is [...]
The Twentieth was the Century of the Welfare State. Governments the world over built and then continuously grew their domestic aid money delivery apparatuses. Tens of trillions of dollars were spent in attempts to raise poor people up and out.
It’s been disastrous.
European Union [...]
It takes a special man to cram so much wrong into a mere 342 words. Or an Old Grey Lady.
The New York Times’ utterly ridiculous Editorial Board recently as one addressed Title II Internet regulatory Reclassification and Network Neutrality – and they did so in utterly [...]
The Barack Obama Administration has spent just about its entire tenure doing things it is not supposed to do.
The myriad executive branch Departments, Agencies, Commissions and Boards have been in omni-directional fashion vastly exceeding their authority – doing things that are clearly the [...]
We recently discussed a bipartisan group of Senators and House members who correctly identified a global trade problem and its negative domestic ramifications.
57 Senators and 152 House members…sign(ed) letters to Barack Obama Administration Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker. In which they expressed concern about [...]
As we asked last week – who says bipartisanship is dead?
The allegedly “do-nothing” Republican-led House of Representatives has actually done a lot of good stuff – a lot of it bipartisan in nature.
“We’ve put together a helpful list of bipartisan [...]
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has already been twice unanimously rebuked by the D.C. Circuit Court in previous attempts to impose Network Neutrality.
Their response to these clear demonstrations of their lack of juice? President Barack Obama appointee FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is considering [...]
Unanimous Supreme Court rulings are certainly noteworthy. When a case lines up every single Justice – appointed by Democrats and Republicans both – the decision must be unbelievably clear cut.
Nine-to-nothings don’t happen very often. The ever-overreaching Barack Obama Administration, however, is in historic fashion racking them [...]
The pernicious effect of government warping markets is absolute – and the evidence is obvious and everywhere.
When 300+ million Americans (and when 8+ billion worldwide are able to) make their own decisions, markets constantly morph to accommodate those decisions – and the maximum amount [...]
Eighty years ago. The depths of the Great Depression. Democrat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt blindly flailing around, throwing ever more government-centric “solutions” at the growing list of problems. Each new centrally-planned effort making matters worse – and the Depression last longer.
Remember, Ladies and Gentlemen, Hideki [...]
In the cinematic classic “The Princess Bride,” Inigo Montoya utters the now oft-repeated “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
Uber-Left government-media outfit Free Press is highly practiced in this disingenuous art. Their name is [...]
The 2009 “Stimulus” bill contained $7.2 billion for local government broadband – the federal government giving city, county and municipal governments money to get into the Internet Service Provider (ISP) business.
Shocker – government broadband is a disaster. It already was, for [...]
No matter how many regulations exist – it’s never enough for the Left. Regs are their Jell-O – they think there’s always room for more.
New EPA Regs Issued Under Obama Are 38 Times as Long as Bible
