Must Reads For The Week 5/6/17

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai On Why He Is Rejecting Net Neutrality Rules, at reason.com. Free speech and access to information are important tools in pushing back against the propaganda of status quo institutions. Government bureaucracies, political parties, mainstream media, the Fed and it’s banking satellites, the health system, and our education system are just a few that need their power reduced. These institutions do not like information about their skims and scams to be found out.

Why The New York Times Is Cheering On “Censorship Algorithms”, at zerohedge.com. U.S. mainstream media  wants to use algorithms to purge the internet of stories it decides is fake news. They don’t like the fact that their monopoly on information no longer exists. Every status quo institution wants to hold on to its power. Fortunately for us the internet genie is out of the bottle.

The Pope’s Favorite Straw Man: Individualism”, by Ryan McMaken, at mises.org. It is OK for the Pope to be ignorant about economics, as long as he doesn’t pontificate about economics.

ESPN Anchor Admits Network Failing Because Of Politics, at tammybruce.com. People watch sports to escape the political BS they are bombarded with everyday.

Jimmy Kimmel Opens Up About His New Born Son’s Heart Surgery And Praises Obamacare, at npr.org. Emotion is not thinking. This is why I haven’t watched any late night shows since Johnny Carson. I don’t want to be preached to by someone who is supposed to make me laugh. We are headed toward a single payer government-run healthcare system and Kimmel obviously supports this. This direction will not be stopped by the House repeal bill. Does Kimmel understand that under his desired government-run single payer system, a bureaucrat, guided by bureaucratic rules, would have decided if his son would have had the surgery or not. It wouldn’t have been his decision. Emotional pleas do not change the reality of the cost of healthcare goods and services. Government subsidies, taxes, rules and regulations created these high cost. After the costs rise, Government then passes regulations that attempt to hide or shift the costs to someone else. Getting back to a true free market in healthcare is the only way to lower healthcare costs. What are the odds of that happening?

Obamacare Implosion: Last Major Healthcare Provider Pulls Out Of Iowa Leaving No Options In 2018, at zerohedge.com. Also: Obamacare “Death Spiral”: Maryland Insurer Seeks 50% Premium Increase for 2018, at zerohedge.com. How is our centrally planned healthcare system working out?

Maduro Hands Out Free Homes, Hikes Minimum Wages To Counter Angry Protests Wave, at zerohedge.com. Free stuff and setting prices is socialist central planning. Government intervention like this is how Venezuela got into this mess in the first place. How are these policies going to improve a situation that policies like this produced?

Philly Beverage Tax Blowback: Coca Cola Sales Plunge 32%, at zerohedge.com. Who would have thought increasing the price would lead to less being consumed. This is incremental socialism.

Dakota Access Pipeline Protest Camp Is Ecological Mess. State May Sue To Recover Losses, at kfgo.com. Do as I say not as I do. These people protested the pipeline because of possible ecological disasters. In the process, they created a real ecological disaster. We should never take these kinds of people serious.

It Takes 79 Solar Workers To Produce Same Amount Of Electric Power As One Coal Worker, by Mark J. Perry, at carpediemblog. Even thought solar and wind are subsidized by tax payer dollars, they can’t match fossil fuels in producing cheap efficient energy.

Northern Arizona U. Professors Claim Student Recordings Are Part Of An Attack, at arizonadailyindependant.com. Students are pushing back against the education establishment.

Barack Obama Officially Endorses Emmanuel Macron, at zerohedge.com. Obama says the hell with influencing elections covertly. I’m going to try to influence the French election overtly. People who think that governments don’t try to influence elections are naive. Did Russia try to influence our election? Yes. Did Obama try to influence Netanyahu’s election (read here)? Yes. Did Obama try to influence the Brexit vote (read here)? Yes. Did late night shows try to influence the election? Yes. Did the mainstream media try to influence the election? Yes. Did wall street try to influence the election? Yes. Did unions try to influence the election? Yes. Did you try to influence the election? There is a big difference between trying to influence an election and tampering with the casting and counting of votes.
