Must Reads For The Week 8/20/16

Old Lies, by Thomas Sowell, at Excerpt from the article: “Too many people in the media and in academia abandon their roles as conduits for facts and take on the role of filterers of facts to promote social and political agendas.

Is Free Trade Causing Job Loss?, by Walter E. Williams, at Excerpt from the article: “While job loss can be traumatic for the individual who loses his jib, for the nation job loss often indicates economic progress. In 1790, farmers were 90 percent of the U.S. labor force. By 1900, about 41 percent of our labor force was employed in agriculture. Today, less than 3 percent of Americans are employed in agriculture. What would Trump or Hillary have done in the face of this precipitous loss of agricultural jobs? They might have outlawed all of the technological advances in science and machinery that have made our farmers the world’s most productive and capable of producing the world’s cheapest food.”

Aetna Joins Other Major Insurers In Pulling Back From Obamacare, by Alison Kodjak, at Obamacare is working exactly as it was planned. It was supposed to be the next step toward a Government single payer system. This is where it is headed.

A Primer On Seattle’s New First Come First Served Renters Laws, at My friend has many rental houses. I told him about this law in Seattle. He said he never rents to the first people who apply. They are usually  jumping from rental house to rental house because they are bad tenants. This law is a violation of an individual’s property rights. Remember the baker who wouldn’t make a wedding cake for a gay wedding. He was forced to either sell his property (the wedding cake) or get fined. He lost his business. Oh I forgot, that can’t happen in Amerika!

Thank God Nobody Died From This Texas Women’s Illegal Tamales, by Scott Shackford, at Once again our public servants have to get involved in voluntary exchanges. If this lady produces food that people don’t want, or if someone gets sick from her food, she will go out of business. It’s that simple.

Shoplifting Runs Rampant In California After Rule Change, at Unintended consequences can be predicted if some basic economic principles are understood. When the costs of getting caught stealing are lowered, more stealing will take place.

Six Weeks Later, L.A. Sheriff’s Department Admits They Killed An Innocent Man In A SWAT Raid, by Eric Gohem, at I think this kind of policing is out of control. An armored vehicle, and flash bang grenades are a bit much. If you add the fact that they didn’t admit they where wrong for six weeks. Well. These kinds of stories are why people don’t trust police. If both sides continue to escalate, this won’t end well.

“Homesick” Clock Boy Family Returns To U.S. Promptly Files $10m Federal Lawsuit, at Does the family of the boy who was suspended from school for biting his pop tart in a way that made it look like a gun have cause to sue? Only if he is a member of one of the lefts protected groups.

Feds Holding Summits For Lesbian Farmers, by Elizabeth Harrington, at Excerpt from the article: “The agency says it wants to change the perception of what it means to be a farmer in America away from white rich male.” I know a lot of farmers. They are not “rich”! Farming is a way of life. For some reason I don’t think lesbians will be falling over each other to become farmers. If individual lesbians decide to become farmers, great, have at it. If your good, you will make it on what you produce and no other reason, which is as it should be. Why is this the government’s business in the first place? Because Government has to expand it’s influence into everything.

Here is the Department of Agriculture’s Document (click here) on this subject. Please look at this document. Where do you get people who make up sh!t like this. Think of all the bureaucrats, in all the government agencies, who use their time to produce rules like this. It is mind boggling.

Hillary Clinton’s On Sexual Assault Issues, Crusader or Hypocrite, at The Factual Feminist.

Hillary Scrubs Sexual Assault Pledge After Allegations Against Bill Resurface, at Hillary has painted herself into a lot of corners over her career. Unfortunately the mainstream media always lets her out of these corners.
