Must Reads For The Week 3/18/17

Portable 3D Printer Builds A Tiny House For A Tiny Price, by Adam Williams, at newatlas.com. Increasing output with less imput (becoming more productive) is how economies grow. Printing money doesn’t make an economy more productive. Printing money distorts the process of production. Only real increases in production grows an economy.

Ford Begins Testing 3D Printing Large Car Parts For Cost-Effective Customization, by Darrel Ethrington, at techcrunch.com. Again this is a good thing. Becoming more productive helps everyone.

Students Criticized The University’s Speech Polices, So It Cut Their Social Media Access, by Bre Payton, at thefederalist.com. At first I thought this headline was from The Onion. But The University of Lincoln proved the students right. Did someone in charge have this thought, “I’ll take away their free speech for criticizing our free speech policies”? And then actually think it made sense?

How Middlebury College Enabled The Riot During Charles Murray’s Visit, by Peter Wood, at thefederalist.com. Colleges are really indoctrination camps. If the student didn’t get brainwashed in high school, than it must be completed in college.

Politician Proposes Seat-Belt Law For Dogs, at targetliberty.com. Another example of a possible headline from The Onion, which turns out to be real.

THE SURVEILLANCE STATE

Congress Created The Spying Monster, by Andrew Napolitano, at lewrockwell.com. When you create a potential monster, you have to tie it down with strong enough chains to keep it in it’s own yard. Oh, and check on it every once and a while.

Here Is A List Of More Than A Dozen Proven Victims Of Obama’s Many Wiretaps, by Jim Hoft, at thegatewaypundit.com. Don’t listen to people who tell you these kinds of things don’t happen.

Obama Advisor Rhodes Is Wrong: The President Can Order A Wiretap, And Why Trump May Have The Last Laugh, at zerohedge.com. The President through the Attorney General can order electronic surveillance. This is part of the law Congress created.

INSIDERS DON’T LIKE OUTSIDERS

Although I disagree with Trump a lot when it comes to economics. He is fighting some battles against government insiders who don’t want to give up power. Winning these battles is important if we are to maintain our individual freedom.

Trump vs. The Deep State, by Ryan McMaken, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article: “The deep state, although there’s no precise or scientific definition, generally refers to the agencies in Washington that are permanent power factions. They stay and exercise power even as presidents who are elected come and go. They typically exercise their power in secret, in the dark, and so they’re barely subject to democratic accountability“. Trump is an outsider who is trying to deminish the power of the unelected deep state. He is fighting powerful forces.

Obama Administration Declared War On Trump, Trump Declared War Back, by P.H. Guthrie, at thefederalist.com. I don’t care what tactics Trump uses to fight the insiders (including the main stream media). We are fighting against people who want to take our individual freedom away. When you are in a fight for your life, there are no rules of conduct.

WHEN MARKETS ARE ALLOWED TO WORK, CONSUMERS WIN.

Jamie King Took An Uber Car To Give Birth, Youtube Video From Late Night With Conan O’Brien. Actress Jamie King said, “I know that they say they’re three minutes away, and an ambulance, you don’t know. So I can rely on Uber. I took an Uber there.” Satisfied customers are the reason Uber will succeed.

TeVido BioDevices 3D-Prints Skin And Fat Grafts For Breast Cancer Survivors, by Sara Ines Calderon, at techcrunch.com. 3-D printing using fat and skin for grafts “that stay alive and not need to be redone over time”. Truly unbelievable.

UNTIL GOVERNMENT  KNOWS WHATS BEST FOR CONSUMERS.

Salt Lake City Slaps Rideshare Drivers With $6,500 Fines, by Lee Davidson, at sltrib.com. Government regulation is the only thing that can harm Uber.

GLOBAL WARMING?

Winnipeg Still Dealing With 18 Metre Snow Pile In August, by Josh Elliott, at ctvnews.ca. Street maintenance manager Jim Berezowsky said, “… this year, he’s seeing more snow than usual. “It is significantly higher than in years past… “We didn’t receive the extreme heat that we usually do.”

Global Warming Computer Models Confounded As Antarctic Sea Ice Hits New Record High, by David Rose, at dailymail.co.uk. Since  Global Warming disciples can’t get the weather cooperate with their models, they’ll  have to use propaganda to make their global warming models fit every weather event.

GOVERNMENT SURVEILLANCE

Today’s Surveillance Society Beyond Orwellian, at libertypenblog.blogspot.com. Why are individuals in Government making the internet a surveillance apparatus? Because big Government attracts and produces individuals who are “unscrupulous and uninhibited” which are both totalitarian tendencies.

California “Kill Switch” Bill Could Be Used To Disrupt Protests, by Jake LaPerruque, at cdt.org. I saw this at libertypenblog.blogspot.com. Politicians and bureaucrats don’t like an informed citizenry.

SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT FERGUSON MISSOURI

*This is starting to remind me of the Duke rape case. It fits a preconceived narrative, until the facts finally come out.

*Why did the race hustlers and the media pick this particular story. Why didn’t they pick this story, Michael Blair Shot by Police in Fort Bend County Texas (watch video). {Family calls for help after their mentally ill son locks himself in the bathroom threatening to hurt himself}

*The break down of the rule of law starts when politicians and bureaucrats ignore the law that they mandate the citizens follow.  Citizens will start to defy the law, and a gradual escalation starts on both sides. This didn’t just start last week.

*It’s hard to believe anyone in this situation is telling the truth. The truth is the foundation not just of how we interact with each other, it is the foundation of our ethics, our morals, and the rule of law. When the foundation collapses, so does the structure that is built on it.

*Politicians, bureaucrats, and journalists are trying to separate us into as many groups as possible in order to pit us against each other. This allows them to control us by controlling the narrative. We have to understand that there are two and only two groups; 1) politicians and bureaucrats who have access to the sword government power, and 2) we who are expected to obey the sword of Government power. The American Revolution was fought to give the individual sovereignty over the Government. This has been flipped upside down, and it’s time to flip it back.
