How many times has government royally messed up something? And not fired anyone? Or done anything that remotely resembles improving their performance?
Oh so very often. In part because they don’t care – once they have the power, they don’t care what happens to us. In part because […]
Al Gore has turned Global Warming into a $500 million dollar personal fortune
Today is June 25, 2015. According to ABC News’ Bob Woodruff in a June 2008 segment, NYC should be underwater by now, gas should be at $9 per gallon, and a carton of milk […]
Government is just another organism. Just like any other other organism, its first priority is self-preservation. Its second – is to grow. The most it possibly can. It wants to be bigger, do more – control more.
There are more than four million humans who work in […]
To quote the late, inordinately great Ronald Reagan, “Government is not the solution to our problem – government is the problem.”
To quote the White Stripes, “I said it once before but it bears repeating”:
“Trade Wars” actually aren’t about trade — they are about government trade […]

Last week’s deadly Amtrak crash was absolutely horrendous.
For Democrats and their fellow Big Government advocates – it was a serious crisis they are trying desperately to not let go to waste.
They first tried to say the cause of the crash was a lack of government […]
It is an empirical fact – a metaphysical certitude. Government overreaches.
And the Barack Obama Administration has the longest, most overactive arms ever. With many, many, MANY power-grabbing hands.

Government is terrible at…well, pretty much everything. The examples are legion – and myriad.
In large part because government doing anything violates the Wallet Rule.
You go out on a Friday night with your wallet. You then go out the following Friday night with my wallet. […]
We have all heard complaints about the “do nothing congress” for the past several presidential administrations. Indeed, we frequently see that congressional approval numbers flirt with historically low positive rates. This has occurred whether the majority of congress has belonged to democrats or republicans.
The American […]
Net Neutralityremains an omni-directional terrible idea.
Here in the United States, Net Neutrality exponentially increases the government’s ability to tax the Internet. Starting with the 17.4% Universal Service Fund (USF) tax. Which goes up automatically every calendar quarter. And goes up each and every time three unelected Federal […]
We’ve heard it for generations. Let government get more involved – and private sector prices will fall. We’ve heard it in defense of new programs – and (ever) more regulations.
We have centuries of evidence to the contrary.
Government promises already made are unfathomably short […]
The solution to many, MANY public policy problems is – less government.
Governments’ regulatory hammers and checkbooks are simply gi-normous. The federal government alone spent last year nearly $4 trillion – and its regulations cost the economy more than $2 trillion more.
That’s $6 trillion a […]
An article I wrote twenty years ago described the Internet as America’s next frontier. And for the past twenty years, it has been a wide-open, innovative, constantly changing — and yes, somewhat unruly – frontier. But all that may have changed with the Federal Communication Commission’s recent announcement […]
The size of the federal government has exploded over the last century. The legislative and judicial branches of government have grown to serve the increased number of states and their growing populations. The size and scope of the executive branch has grown to reflect an expanded role […]
We were on February 26 subjected to the hugest of Barack Obama Administration Internet power grabs. Where the Administration unilaterally decided to start applying 1934 landline telephone law to the 21st-Century-Web.
This government grab was made under the guise of Network Neutrality – but this flashback-to-New-Deal phone […]
The Farm Bill is a bane of we Conservatives’ existence – and Reality-based policymaking. It is a relic of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR)’s horrendously failed New Deal – a top-down, central-planning nightmare mess.
And over the last eighty-plus years, FDR’s heinous domestic policy has gone global. […]
In ratifying law-breaking by both President Obama and millions of aliens, Boehner removed any lingering doubt that he is the Democrat-preferred Obama-Pelosi House Speaker. After the amnesty debacle, there can be no doubt that he is not even a RINO; he is the next-best-to-Pelosi front-man for the far left Democrats.
“I won,” declared Barack Obama, adding what is now a cliché: “Elections have consequences.” But, due to endless RINO lying to voters, Boehner and his henchmen have proven that is only partly true. Lying has been central to this country’s decay. First and foremost, campaign lying and liars must be stopped. This is an absolute […]
Reactions to John Boehner’s re-election as Speaker included scant attention to its implications for representative democracy. There is now no way for a majority of voters to obtain representatives who will represent them; and no way to compel a purportedly representative government to comply with their clear wishes on matters they consider most crucial.
Mike Shedlock had an intriguing column this last weekend about Detroit (and other major cities) installing streetcar systems, at seriously high costs, while technology marches forward, toward, he suggests, to driverless automobiles which may be the rapid transit of the future.
Whether or not such […]
