Perhaps the only thing government loves more than spending our money – is taking it.
The spending has long since passed absurdly astronomical levels. The Feds alone spend about $4 TRILLION a year. Governments in total are spending about 36% of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) – […]
Yet another ongoing government authoritarian problem is the rampant abuse of civil forfeiture. Which is where federal, state and local Leviathans seize personal property of all sorts. Often when someone is merely suspected of – not charged with – a crime. Often when the tie between the […]
The late, inordinately great Ronald Reagan provided expert analysis of the ridiculous Push-Pull damage wrought by government.
The government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops […]
As we’ve often discussed, the Tech World Media is just as hopelessly Leftist and lost as the broader Jurassic Press.
They so often get it so very wrong – often because their absurd political perspective warps their alleged “reporting.”
Saturday gave us […]
“Burn this b**** down.”
Some believe those words, shouted by Louis Head, stepfather to the late Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri, are what touched off three days of rioting, violence, and untold property damage across the U.S. and elsewhere.
Head was captured on video with Brown’s mother […]
One of the largest myths going is that government helps the Little Guy.
On its face this is patently absurd. More government – taxes and/or regulations – raises the costs of everything for everyone. The Big Guys are far better equipped to absorb the […]
Unless you only get your news via the Jurassic Press – or you are a government school victim who as a result doesn’t pay attention to anything at all – you are now intimately familiar with the on-camera stylings of Jonathan Gruber.
Gruber is a […]
President Barack Obama’s recent Asia trip was – like much of his presidency – very often disastrous.
Some things are more disastrous than others.

Election 2014 was a gi-normous repudiation of the Democrat tax-and-spend, go-it-alone-government-knows-best model.
For everyone except Democrats.
(President Barack) Obama Pledges Immigration Executive Order By End Of Year
After Rout, Dems Plan Few Changes
Soon-to-be-ex-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is certainly a part of the Oblivious Caucus.
President Barack Obama this morning released a statement calling for his Administration’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – allegedly an independent agency – to execute a unilateral, complete rewrite of existing law.
He wants reclassification of how the Internet is regulated – so as to […]
Thank you very much to all who serve and have served. #VeteransDay
Yesterday we had this:
Internet Reclassification: President Obama Tosses Another Grenade After Second Election Shellacking

What is far and away the most important global trade commodity? Food. People have to eat.
Before the world’s peoples can afford to purchase from us an iPhone, or a Ford pickup truck – they have to buy (hopefully our) food.
I used to bet football games, and play occasional hands of cards (I’m mostly retired). I did so mostly online – via a company based in Costa Rica.
Did I know the owner of the Costa Rican company? No. Did I know anyone in […]
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
