Dear Media: Please Stop Normalizing The Alt-Right, by David Harsanyi, at thefederalist.com. Why would the media cover a 150 person gathering of white nationalists and try to say this is who Trump voters are? Anyone who is for smaller government will be painted as a member of the Alt-Right. This is SOP by the mainstream media.
Fashion Designers Are Boycotting Melania Trump, Shouldn’t Bakers And Florists Have The Same Right?, by Stephanie Slade, at reason.com. Another example of do as I say not as I do. This is a property rights issue. I own what I produce. No one can force me to sell my property if I don’t want to.
After Trump University, Why Not Sue All Colleges? by Brian Joondeph, at americanthinker.com. This is a great Idea. Colleges don’t deliver the results they advertise. Students get out of college with huge student loan debt, and job prospects that won’t produce enough income to pay the loans back.
Failure: Obama Blew $150 Billion To Increase Renewable Energy By 1%, by John Hoft, at thegatewaypundit.com. Obama failed as a venture capitalist. Wind and solar are not viable sources of energy compared to low-cost fossil fuels, although they might be at some point in the future. But trying to make them viable by subsidizing them with billions of tax payer dollars wastes scarce resources that could be used in more productive activities. Economic forces always win.
USGS Announces Largest Oil And Gas Deposit Ever Assessed In U.S. by Rebecca Hersher, at npr.org. This is one of the reasons green energy isn’t a viable energy source. Fracking technology has made oil and natural gas less expensive. New technologies also allow us to find more oil and gas deposits. As long as carbon based fuel can produce more power at a lower cost than green energy, green energy will remain on the back burner. Economic forces always win.
July Makes It Official: Americans Buy More SUV/Crossovers Than Cars, by Timothy Cain, at thetruthaboutcars.com. As long as gasoline prices remain low people will purchase SUVs. Economic forces always prevail.
Heh: Dem Senator Suddenly Regrets The “Reid Rule” On Filibusters, by Guy Benson, at townhall.com. When the Democrats were in the majority they voted to take the filibuster away from the minority party. Now that they are in the minority they don’t think it is such a good idea. The Democrats are going to be hoisted on your own petard. Karma’s a bitch.
Students’ Reaction To Trump Win, “Suck It Up Pussies.” Police Are Investigating This Hate Crime, by Robby Soave, at reason.com. We live in a world that has gone insane.

Hungry Venezuelans Flee In Boats To Escape Economic Collapse, by Mark J. Perry, at Carpe Diem Blog. Do you ever wonder why people don’t flee free market countries for a better life in socialist paradises like Cuba? Neither do I.
Progressives Demand Gun Control After Knife Attack At Ohio State, by Bre Payton, at thefederalist.com. When the first “fake” news accounts came out and said there was an active shooter loose on the OSU Campus, political hacks couldn’t wait to condemn this most recent example of gun violence and ask for gun control. I later found out the perp drove his car into a crowd of people and then got out and started stabbing people with a knife before an OSU security cop shot and killed the perp. At first I laughed at how the political hacks jumped the gun (so to speak) on this story. But upon further analysis, I thought maybe, just maybe, these hacks actually didn’t like the fact that the cop used a gun on a guy who only had a knife. Maybe they thought the cop should have used a taser, a billy club or just wrapped his leather jacket around his arm and fought the guy like James Dean in the movies. The crazy thing is, some of these progressives might actually be thinking this.
