House Passes Legislation Renewing Controversial NSA Surveillance Program, at Why do we allow the government to use warrantless eavesdropping on US citizens? The US Congress has essentially repealed our fourth amendment rights against illegal searches and seizures.

How The Government Hides Secret Surveillance Programs, by Aaron Sprecher, at Local governments are breaking the law when they use Stingray surveillance devices. They are violating the fourth and fifth amendments of the Constitution.

No, We Don’t Need A Federal “Solution” To Infrastructure Problems, by Ryan McMaken, at Cities and states not only have enough wealth to build infrastructure, they have the knowledge of what should be built. The Federal government has no business redistributing tax dollars from one state to fund another state’s infrastructure projects. Federal infrastructure spending leads to waste. Remember the bridge to nowhere in Alaska. What about Obama saying, ‘I guess all those shovel ready jobs weren’t so shovel ready”.

Army Finds $830 Million In “Missing” Helicopters As First Ever Audit Begins, at The fact that the audit of the Department of Defense is taking place is a good thing. A huge amount of waste will be found. This should not surprise anyone. Because where ever there is a pile of tax payer money to be given out there will be no shortage of corruption that will take place in the procurement of these funds. Making government more efficient is a good start. But if you are truly interested in cutting the size of government, you have to cut the amount of tax payer dollars that the government takes from the economy. Very few politicians are interested in cutting the size and scope of government. We the people have to get this done. By the way; How much waste do yo think there is in all the other government agencies?

Dem-Ordered Study To Expose Illegal Online Gun Sales Backfires, by Brooke Singman, at The Government Accountability Office was tasked to try to purchase guns from online private dealers to show how easy it was to purchase guns illegally. After two and a half years, Their 72 attempts to purchase a gun illegally were unsuccessful. Have you heard about this from the main stream media aka fake news? Bias anyone!

Google’s Fact-Check Targets Conservative Sites, at No one is unbiased. Especially individuals who are in positions as keepers of the truth. These people are not supposed to be questioned about their bias. They are supposed to be trusted because in their minds they have the ability to leave their bias on the sidelines.

Project Veritas Exposes Twitter “Shadow Banning”, Blocking Opposing Views, at In the words of Ronald Reagan, “Well, there you go again”. Twitter shows its political bias by what it blocks.

On Duty Police Deaths Were Near A 50 Year Low In 2017, at I am all about the truth. You have probably been lead to believe that police deaths are at all time highs. But that is not the truth. Perception isn’t reality.

Seattle Soda Tax Prompts Price Increases, Small Business Pain, at Nanny state soda tax proponents claim the tax will not hurt business. They say it will change consumer’s preferences. This is an example of Progressives trying to force what they think is good on to other people who disagree. In this case progressives are using increased prices through taxation to curb the use of a product they don’t want people to have. They understand the law of supply and demand: Less is demanded at a higher price than a lower price. This will create a black market for soda, just like the NYC cigarette tax has created a black market for cigarettes.

Pink Pussyhats Of The Anti-Trump Women’s March Are Falling Out Of Favor. The Reason Is Quite Ironic, at the This could be a story from The Onion. Did you know there were other subdivisions inside the broad category labeled “women”? I get a smile on my face when I see the proponents of ‘identity politics’ have it blow up in their faces. We have allowed politicians to gain power over us by dividing us into different groups and pitting us against each other. The fact is there are only two groups. Group 1) Individuals inside government who wield state sanctioned power. Group 2) Individuals outside of government who have state sanctioned power used against them. The battle has always been the same. The State vs. The Individual. When individuals accept their placement into one of these identity groups, they become ignorant about the real battle taking place.

Christmas Tree Protectionism, by Scott McPherson, at Excerpt from the article:”Chinese companies dominate thee domestic market, and their fake trees are “driving” Christmas tree-growers in Oregon out of business. The number of fake trees sold in the U.S. “more than doubled” from 2010 to 2016….while the number of Christmas trees cut and sold dropped by twenty-six percent.

Is this good or bad? Looking through the lens of economics it is neither good nor bad. It is just how the free market works. Looking at it from the perspective of the fake or real tree suppliers it is a different story. Each wants the biggest share of the market as it can get. Even if it means going outside of the market and getting Government to torpedo your competition. Unfortunately for suppliers, the subjective value of consumers is what ultimately decides if their business will survive. For the economy as a whole getting rid of non profitable activities stops scarce resources from being wasted, and allows these scarce resources to be channeled toward more productive uses according to consumer’s subjective valuations.

Dudley Dough, Boston ‘Fair Wage’ Pizza Shop, to Close After Two Years, by Jessica Chasmar, at You can’t pay labor more than what it produces for very long. The forces of economics always win. This is good for the economy as a whole. Resources will no longer be wasted on an activity that isn’t profitable.

US Slashes United Nations’ Budget $285 Million Following “Stunning” Jerusalem Rebuke,  at The insiders haven’t figured out that Trump isn’t an insider. He isn’t like our four US Presidents. He is not playing the same game. It is as if insiders and the UN are playing baseball and Trump is playing hockey.

“$1MM Per Minute In Salaries, $22 BN Per Year In Vacation Pay” and Other Fun Facts About The Federal Workforce, at High pay and benefits for non productive work is what Government is all about. These salaries, benefits and pensions are paid for by your tax dollars. Which means there is no incentive to keep these costs down.

The FCC Needs To Abolish A Lot More Than Net Neutrality, by Sam Estep, at Excerpt from the article: “….”so-called net neutrality” isn’t simply a regulation, it is a total reclassification of the Internet from an “information service” to a “telecommunication service.” This may seem like simple semantics, but the latter classification has been around far longer, and has, consequently, accumulated a bevy of regulations and restrictions confining it……..Declassification of common carriers and public utilities, repeal of charters, as well as other government constructed barriers, would allow more regional providers to compete with national ones. Such a deregulation would force companies that have exceeded their ability to function effectively due to their size, but are still being protected fro competition by regulations to fail.”

Why Republicans Need to Self-Deport From Washington DC, by Brad Todd, at The ideology of big government central planning is pervasive inside Washington D.C. In D.C. both parties have a incestuous intellectual relationship with other. Government intervention is the answer to every problem. The idea of shrinking government and allowing individuals make decisions is foreign to the insiders. Outside of D.C., Republican party voters want government to get out of their lives. The battle for individual freedom is taking place inside the Republican party, because the Democrat party has become the home of big government socialism. Small government outsiders are trying to take over the Republican party and the D.C. party insiders are trying to stop this from happening.

Weapons Went From The CIA To ISIS In Less Than Two Months, at Is what the media called a ‘conspiracy theory’ in 2013 now being reported as fact?

Time To Get Them Off Our Gravy Train, by Greg Walcher, at Environmental organizations are using ‘sue and settle’ tactics against the EPA to get their hands on millions of our tax dollars. This is what happens when government grows to the size it is today. It is easier to hide waste, fraud and corruption inside the bureaucratic maze. EPA director Scott Pruitt is trying to stop this gravy train.

Global Warming: Fake News From The Start, by Tim Ball and Tom Harris, at Is man made global warming climate change ‘crisis’ a scam to get money and power? These two scientists say yes.

Love Your Heart? Eat Chocolate, by Joseph Mercola, at Lets start with something that not only makes me happy, it also satisfies my confirmation bias. Chocolate is good for me! Excerpt from the article: “According to a recent study in Denmark, people who consume cocoa one to three times a month were about 10 percent less likely to be diagnosed with AFib, compared to people who ate chocolate less than once a month.”  By my calculation if I consume cocoa 30 times a month I will be 100 percent less likely to be diagnosed with AFib.

How Dumb Is The Fed? at Excerpt from the article: “….the boom of 09-17 was wrought by the Fed and paid for with fake money. It is a classic credit bubble, in other words – not genuine prosperity…..All the bubbly action… is in the financial markets, not the real main street economy. And as the Austrian School economists tell us, every boom not financed on real savings must end in a bust…..Nothing comes from nothing. Fake money produces fake prosperity. Take away the fake money… and the fake prosperity goes “poof,” too. Which is why the Fed will never, voluntarily, stop manipulating prices. It can’t let the markets return to “normal” price discovery…..All of this debt now hangs on the feeble reed of more ultra-low interest rate policies. The Fed says it is going to return its interest rate policy back to normal……No chance. It’s not that dumb.

Doctors Are Fighting To Treat Charlie Gard. Will The UK Let Them? by Arina Grossu, at This is what government-run healthcare looks like. The UK supreme court won’t allow the parents of this child to seek  treatment in the US, even though the UK won’t be on the hook for the cost of any treatments. The problem with government-run healthcare is, who makes decisions about your care? You or the government? Trust me it’s not going to be you. In totally government-run healthcare system, you are owned by the State.

Rand Paul: The Senate GOP Is Going To Keep Obamacare, at Is anyone surprised by this? No! Because the leadership of the GOP is biased toward the status quo of big government. The only way to get rid of Obamacare is to get rid of the leadership of the Republican party. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan should be replaced by Rand Paul and Thomas Massie.

Illinois “Budget Deal” Is Likely The Death Knell For The State’s $130 Billion Underfunded Pensions, at Bernie Madoff went to jail for his Ponzi scheme. These bureaucrats and politicians won’t spend a day in jail for doing the same thing Bernie Madoff did. Excerpt from the article: “…One of the ways Illinois managed to “fix” its budget crisis was to kick the can down the road on their future pension funding requirements….pensions which are only funded 35% as it is. How did they do it? …they simply decided to continue modeling future returns at a much higher rate than they’ll ever be able to reasonably achieve……In short they tweaked one simple number and, like magic, your whole funding crisis “disappears”.” Manipulating data? That’s what the global warming pretenders have been doing for decades.

Real Climate Science Shows Trump Was Right To Exit Paris, at Excerpt from the article: “In actual intent and practice, the Paris Agreement is a political tool for suppressing growth, instituting global governance over energy use and economic growth, and redistributing wealth.”

Maureen Dowd: Economic Illiterate, at The reason I posted this is to get you to understand that you don’t have to take a back seat to the likes of Maureen Dowd, or any other supposed intelligent progressives in positions of “authority”, when it comes to understanding economics. Reading my site allows you to understand basic economics at a higher level than people with credentialed ignorance, like Maureen Dowd.

Mizzou Says 35% Decline In Enrollment Due To 2015 Protests, at This shows people are paying attention to the actions of the crazy leftists, and these actions have consequences. Regular people couldn’t relate to the craziness of these protesters, and many are deciding Mizzou isn’t the place for them.

Majoring In Unemployment: Ohio Wesleyan To Launch “Social Justice Major” at Why would anyone go into debt to get a Social Justice degree? If you can get a job with this degree, will the job you get allow you to pay back the debt and have a high standard of living? At some point economic reality will destroy these kinds of degrees.

Delta Doesn’t Like Competition From Subsidized Gulf Carriers But US Consumers Should Be Thankful for The Foreign Aid, by Mark J. Perry, at Delta is a crony capitalist business. It doesn’t like competition. It wants the government to protect it from competition.

The Other Side Of “Safety“, at Is the technology produced by imperfect human beings perfect? Excerpt from the article: “Technology never makes mistakes – unlike the humans who design it. Who never fail to anticipate the unanticipated. Sarcasm, in case you didn’t pick up on it. This 190 prof moonshine – distilled by arrogant technocrats like Elon Musk – is going to get people hurt as automated-driving technology comes online.” Is new safety aid technology in newer cars really safe?

NYT Laments Sharp Decline In Illegal Immigration Under Trump, at Who would have thought that stating you are going to enforce the laws, and then actually enforcing the laws, would be a deterrent? I heard someone say it isn’t Trump who is the deterrent, it is the media’s constant portrayal of him as an evil SOB, that is making illegals afraid to come here.

The Real First Responders, at Always remember that in every situation, you are the first responder. Observing what’s going on around you (situational awareness) is the key to being a good first responder.

Healthcare Stocks Are Crashing As The End Of Obamacare Looms, at The Republicans have said they want to repeal and replace Obamacare. The problem is if they replace it with their version of government mandated healthcare it will also be a failure. The only way to lower the cost of healthcare is to allow a free market to exist in healthcare and healthcare insurance. What are the chances of politicians allowing this to happen?

Landlords, Not Government, Should Police Airbnb, by Jared Mayer, at Government is always trying to prop up the status quo. Government bureaucrats and politicians don’t like the free market, no matter how much lip service they pay to it.

Car2Go To Suspend Twin Cities, at The car sharing app is suspending service because of government regulations. Another example of how anti free market government officials are.

Nebraska Strikes A Blow For Liberty; Bans Civil Asset Forfeiture, at More states have to take this action. Civil asset forfeiture is a violation of peoples fourth amendment rights.

Dallas Bankruptcy Threat, at It’s not just the Federal Government that makes poor economic decisions. Dallas hasn’t fully funded their police and fire pensions. The city is close to bankruptcy because it over promised and under delivered on these pension programs.

‘Feminist’ Snow-Plowing System Brings Stockholm To A Standstill, at Instead of using the tried and true methods that have worked for years, progressive politicians are sending snow plows to areas that are most used by women. Of course the unintended consequence is gridlock.

The Remarkably Coordinated Global War On Cash, at Government loves the idea of a cashless society. It’s all about control.

Trump’s Student Loan Plan Treats Symptoms, Not The Disease, by Blaine Conzatti, at Here is an excerpt from the article: “In the face of increased demand for student loans, unless supply keeps pace with demand, prices will inevitably rise. Millions of students have become burdened with previously unimaginable levels of student loan debt needed to finance schooling that has been made artificially expensive by government intervention.” Trumps plan exchanges his government solution for the existing government solution that caused the existing problem. It is similar to healthcare. If you repeal Obamacare and replace it with another government solution, you are treating the symptom and not the problem. A market provides the only opportunity to have the highest quality healthcare at the lowest possible cost. The same is true if there was a student loan market.

Brexit Leader Nigel Farage Reacts To Trumps Victory


Nigel Farage Post Brexit Vote Address:


The battle for freedom and liberty must be fought everyday. You never know how close you are to getting the big government barge stopped and turned around. In the U.S. a turning point was the rise of the tea party and liberty movements in response to Obamacare. It has taken four election cycles to get to where we are today. If we continue to teach people about the superiority of free markets and individual liberty, over socialism and central planning, who knows where we could be in the next four election cycles. Now is the time to push harder because big Government central planners won’t give up their power this easily.

Gun Control Lessons For Morons, by Daniel Mitchell, at Concealed-carry permit holders are a more law-abiding demographic group than police officers.

Booby Bra Is A Great Option For Packing Heat On A Run, By Krystle Shoonveld, at Women were getting attacked while they were out jogging, so an enterprising lady came up with a bra that can not only hold a weapon securely, it can also hold in place what it is supposed to hold in place with no spillage. What a great country.

Pope Says Global Warming Is A ‘Sin Against Creation‘, at The Pope should stick to his ministry, which is mercy and reconciliation. If he is truly worried about CO2 emissions, he should stop exhaling.

Obama Delivers On Vow To Bankrupt Coal Industry, at There has been a 42% decline in coal mining employees since 2012. Mission accomplished. For the record, some coal-burning power plants in the US have changed over to natural gas because fracking has made natural gas a more economical way to produce electricity.

Hillary Is Either A Liar Or She Is Grossly Incompetent, at The more information that comes out about her Email server, the more trouble Hillary has keeping straight her previous attempts at obfuscation (lying). Her problem is she looks like a young child trying to lie when caught doing something they weren’t supposed to do. Everyone can see this because at one time we were all kids who at one time tried to lie our way out of getting in trouble.

Clinton Foundation Is Charity Fraud Of Epic Proportions, at Excerpt from the article: “…the Clinton family’s mega-charity took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $9 million on direct aid. That’s because the organization spent the vast bulk of its windfall on “administration, travel, salaries and bonuses”, with the fattest payouts going to family friends.”

Australia’s Solution To California’s Water Woes: Markets, at Edicts form politicians and Government bureaucrats don’t provide solutions. Government edicts just get in the way of the trade offs made in the market.

Female Student Admits To Incredible Lie That Got Auburn Football Player Kicked Off Team, by Robby Soave, at This was a legal matter that should have been turned over to police. College officials are not qualified to do investigative police work. Oh by the way. Auburn’s title IX coordinator, Kelly Taylor, wanted to proceed even after the student told her she lied about the incident. Don’t let the facts get in the way of an agenda!

The One Trillion Dollar Consumer Loan Auto Bubble Is About To Burst, at Loaning money to people to buy cars who can’t afford the loan leads to disaster. Remember the sub-prime housing loan bubble?

Man Allows Himself To Get Caught Robbing Bank So He Can Get Away From His Wife, by Ashley May, at When I first heard this story, I thought they were talking about Bill Clinton.

How To Pick The Fastest Line At The Supermarket, by Chris Mele, at This is the most important article, at least for me. I pick the wrong line everywhere I go. Two weeks ago I was in line at the drive through window at a burger joint. The car in front of me stalled and the driver couldn’t get it started. I helped push the car out of the way while the drivers wife walked through the drive in window. That is typical of my luck. There are some good suggestions in this article.

Louisiana, Private Disaster Relief Outperforms Government, at People with privately owned boats calling themselves the Cajun Navy rescued people from the recent flooding in Baton Rouge. They used phone apps and Facebook to find people needing help. What was Louisiana’s State government response? Louisiana Lawmaker Wants To Subject The Cajun Navy To Government Red Tape, Regulations, And Fees, at carpediemblog. Does this surprise anyone? Although the State Senator clarified his original statement, we all know that government intervention starts with good intentions and ends up with bad consequences. How did the Federal Government respond to the crisis? The Obama Administration Gives Louisiana Flood Victims An Anti-Discrimination Lecture, at The Justice Departments guidance “highlights the importance of complying with nondiscrimination requirements of civil rights statutes, addressing the needs of the whole community, and ensuring equal opportunity to access recovery efforts..” This kind of nonsense is more important to bureaucrats than actually doing the hard work of helping with the recovery. Hey! Here’s the best policy for Government. Get out-of-the-way. Quit making it harder for the people who are actually getting something done.

Massachusetts To Tax Ride-Sharing Apps, Give The Money To Taxis, at This is an example of government officials trying to overturn the decisions made freely by millions of consumers in the market. Bureaucrats only like free market results when these results agree with what the bureaucrats think the results should be. Massachusetts is going to levy a 20 cents tax on each ride given by Uber Lyft and other ride-sharing apps. 5 cents will go to the taxi industry as a subsidy. Excerpt from the article: “The law says the money will help taxi businesses to adopt “New technologies and advanced service, safety and operational capabilities” and to support workforce development.” In order to compete with the new ride-sharing technology, wouldn’t you think the taxi industry should have been doing this already? Is the taxi cartel like the post office? With Uber and Lyft playing the role of FedEx and UPS. If they can’t compete without taxpayer-funded subsidies, either get better or go out of business. To all the young people who think socialism is a great idea. What do you think of this socialist central planning scheme?

Clinton Foundation To Restrict Foreign Donations If Hillary Gets Elected, at Why would it be bad to accept foreign money if you’re the President, but fine to accept it when you’re the Secretary of State? This is like closing the barn door after the horse has gotten out. Since the Clinton Foundation is a money laundering operation, don’t you think the foundation will find ways to launder this foreign money even if Hillary wins?

I Thought Charities Were Supposed To Give, at The Clinton Foundation takes in $177 million of which $135 million is cash contributions. They give out a little over $5 million in grants, assistance, and gifts. That’s 2.9% of what they take in. Look at all the other expenses. Whose pockets are getting lined with the rest of the money?

FBI Admits Clinton Used Software Designed To Prevent Recovery And Hide Traces Of Deleted EMails, at FBI says Clinton used BleachBit to erase the emails on her private server. From the article: BleachBit (click here) is software designed to help the user delete files in a way to ‘prevent recovery’ and ‘hide traces of files deleted’.” Remember, she just wanted to get rid of yoga classes and wedding plans.

Rigged: Virginia Governor And Clinton Crony Terry McAuliffe, Restores Voting Rights To 13,000 Felons, at McAuliffe originally tried to restore voting rights to over 200,000 felons. This attempt was shot down last month by the state supreme court. But like the Terminator he is back. Do you think that McAuliffe would be this persistent in his efforts to “right a perceived wrong” if this bloc of voters voted for Republicans?

Top 25 Corporate Pension Plans Alone Are Underfunded By Over $225 Billion, at Add this to the insolvency of social security and you tell me; who is going to pay for the over consumption of the last 15 years that was caused by money printing? That’s right the people who produced real value during that time period.

State University Now Offers ‘Stop White People’ Training, at Excerpt from the article: “They state their purpose is to “help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within,” Presumably the “white” society they plan to “stop” at the event.” No comment necessary!

Heroic University Of Chicago To Incoming Students: We Do Not Support Safe Spaces And Trigger Warnings, at Excerpt from the article: “Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so-called ‘trigger warnings,’ we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation  of intellectual ‘safe spaces’ where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own.” At last some sanity in this world! Do you think the University found courage because alumni said they would not donate anymore if the university went down the trigger warning road? I’m just asking. I don’t know.

Obama Energy Secretary: Fracking Is Good For The Environment, by Bre Payton, at The crazy environmentalists have to be going out of their minds over this. Natural gas from fracking is replacing coal in the production of electricity. ‘Greenhouse gas emissions’ have been reduced by 20%. Environmentalists should be thrilled. The free market is reducing CO2 levels. Here is their conundrum.  They hate fossil fuels and free markets but they love lower CO2 levels. If their green energy policies can’t get credit for the drop in CO2 emission, they would prefer not talking about the emissions dropping at all.

As Predicted Obamacare Is Killing The Middle Class, at Remember what we said last week. Obamacare is working exactly as planned. It was supposed to fail. It was intended to be the next step toward a government run single payer healthcare system.

4 Reasons To Fear Encryption Back Doors Even Though You’re Not A Terrorist, by Scott Schackford, at Apple is standing against the FBI grabbing power that it doesn’t possess. Here is an excerpt from the article: “…the federal government has made it very abundantly clear that they want to bypass encryption not just in this one case, but in others as well, including cases where the suspected criminal is alive but uncooperative or unavailable. The government is attempting to coerce citizens into assisting the government to gain access to somebody else’s property. This sets a dangerous precedent that is easy to ignore because of the circumstances of this case.”

Judge Orders Discovery, Testimony From State Department On Hillary’s EMail, at Judge orders that Judicial Watch will be able to question Hillary’s staff under oath about her e-mails. Judge says there is “reasonable suspicion” that staff members tried to thwart the Freedom of Information Act.

Why Women Pay Higher Prices For The “Same” Products, by John Dotson, at The operative word is “same”. Just because a product may be similar doesn’t mean it is the same. Subjective value by consumers also contributes to price differences between similar (not the same) products. Since men and and women value things differently, price differences shouldn’t be a shock to anyone.
