GOVERNMENT COUNTERFEITING, ALTHOUGH LEGAL, IS STILL THEFT

Keynesian Economics 101, (In Four Simple Lessons), at zerohedge.com. Print and spend money to stimulate the economy.

The Government Must Stop Printing Phoney Money, by Richard Ebeling, at epictimes.com. This is an in-depth article about the Government electronically printing counterfeit money. Trying to take away the States monopoly on money printing through the political process is a daunting task. Put your thinking cap on for this one.

The Rise Of Independent (non-state) Crypto-Currencies, by Charles Hugh Smith, at oftwominds.com. This is how the States money printing monopoly will be taken down. When I first heard of Bitcoin, my first thought was Bitcoin, or some other crypto-currency, could lead to money being restored as a product of the free market. The States monopoly of money printing could be broken just like the taxi cartels monopoly was broken by an app on a phone (Uber).

Are We Headed For Another Bust?, by Frank Shostak, at mises.org. The Feds intervention in the free market by its policy of below market interest rates and electronically printing counterfeit money will eventually be corrected by economic forces that are always in play. The bust is correcting the Fed induced boom.

GRAB YOUR GUNS!

The Constitution, The President, And Guns, by Andrew P. Nepolitano, at creators.com. The opposition party hasn’t stood up to the power grabs by our President over the last 7 years. Why would anyone think the Presidents last year in office won’t be like the last 7 years on steroids?

Obama’s Gun Control Order: Dictatorial And It Won’t Work, by John Lott, at nationalreview.com. I’d have more respect for the President if he would just come out and say he wants to repeal the second amendment.

Chart Of The Day: More Guns Less Gun Violence Between 1993 And 2013, by Mark J. Perry, at carpediemblog. Data shows that gun violence has gone down as firearm ownership has increased. Causation or correlation?

Showman And Chief, by Thomas Sowell, at jewishworldreview.com. Thomas Sowell looks at the political theater of the Presidents press conference concerning gun control.

President Obama Tears Up While Discussing His Action To Curb Gun Violence. If you read the article by Thomas Sowell above: you have to ask yourself if the tears are real or just part of the show?

Just remember the Presidents standard operating proceedure: “You Never Let A Serious Crisis Go To Waste“.

JUST FOR LAUGHS

Hillary Can’t Explain The Difference Between Democrats And Socialists.

Let me see if I can help. A Democrat is a socialist who won’t admit it. She said she’s a “progressive” Democrat. A progressive Democrat, or a progressive Republican, is socialist central planner.

Dexter Manley Has Some Thoughts About Black Quarterbacks.

A couple of observations.  1) Watch the white guy in the video. He knows this is funny but he tries to hide his laughter by putting his head down. 2) Dexter Manley apologized for saying this. Are we so worried about offending people that we can’t even make jokes about ourselves or laugh at jokes like these. Isn’t it about time to drive a stake through the heart of political correctness?

The Department of Agriculture is a Welfare Scam, by Dan Mitchell, at freedomandprosperity.com. Crony capitalism for big Agribusinesses consists of subsidies, handouts, and favorable regulation, all on the tax payers dime. We also have to pay higher prices than would be charged in a true free market.

Hunger And War In WWI Germany: Remembering The Slaughter Of Pigs, by T. Hunt Tooly, at mises.org. The During WWI, the German Government fixed the prices of potatoes. This made it more profitable for the farmers to feed them to their hogs. The result was a potato shortage (which is what happens when government sets a price ceiling). The government solution to the potato shortage they created was to kill a third of the pig population. This resulted in a shortage of pork and potatoes. Central planners are much smarter than the market!

Extreme Poverty Worldwide Has Plummeted As Market Economics Has Spread, by Ryan McMaken, at mises.org. The best anti poverty plan is to keep governments from interfering in the free market. Just think how prosperous the world would be if government sanctioned central banks hadn’t printed multiple trillions of dollars over the past ten years.

Incentives, Ideology, and Climate Change, by Peter G. Klein, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article: “journalists think  that “scientists are disinterested truth-seekers immune from institutional and organizational constraints. This is the default assumption about scientists working within the general consensus of their discipline. By contrast, critics of the consensus position, whether inside our outside the core discipline, are presumed to be motivated by ideology or private interest.”

A Behind The Scenes Look At The November Jobs Report, by Jonathan Newman, at mises.org. Government jobs and jobs created because of Obamacare provisions are part of this increase. Tax payer funded jobs are not productive jobs.
