Must Reads For The Week 3/18/17

March 19, 2017

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.

The pen is mightier than the sword...

Video: Turning SWAT Teams Into Death Squads, at libertypenblog.blogspot.com, by John W. Whitehead. The Fourth Amendment states, ‘The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause….’ Law enforcement in the U.S. isn’t constrained by the Fourth Amendment anymore.

The US Government Doesn’t Want You To Know How The Cops Are Tracking You, by Trevor Timm, at the gardian.com. I saw this at libertypenblog.blogspot.com. Another example of Government abusing our Fourth Amendment rights.

US Captures The Benghazi Killings Mastermind (And Scapegoat), at zerohedge.com. Everything this administration does is for purely political reasons. We can’t possibly believe anything else. Excerpt from the article, “What is perhaps more curious is why it took Obama nearly two years to find a person who was openly living in Libya after the attacks, and in fact gave interviews several interviews with TIME magazine in 2012, but with AP in October 2013:” When this guy goes to trial, he can have President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton, and Ambassador Rice testify that what happened in Benghazi was a spontaneous attack because of an anti Islamic video shown on the internet. No one could possibly challenge the veracity of these three witnesses.

U.S. Government Trying To Force Washington Redskins To Change Name, by Rachel Blevins, at benswann.com. Two things going here. 1) Government officials exercising force over peoples property rights. 2) Government officials enforcing something that is completely meaningless to the well being of American Indians, but is very meaningful to the ego of the Government officials. I have one question for these Government officials. How did the creation of Indian Reservations, by Government officials, work out for the American Indians who live on them? Read here.

Marc Faber Explains The Fed’s Dilemma In 15 Words, at zerohedge.com. Faber’s words, “The more they print, the more inequality there is, the weaker the economy will become.” The Fed is creating the very problem it is trying to cure with its double edge sword of electronically printing counterfeit money and zero interest rates.

Bobby Jindal Pulls Lousiana Out Of Common Core, by Robby Soave, at reason.com. The more that is known about Common Core, the more it is being rejected. Virginia, Texas, Minnesota, and Nebraska never adopted Common Core. Louisiana just pulled out, just as Indiana, Oklahoma, and South Carolina, recently pulled out. North Carolina and Missouri look like they are next. Liberty minded people are winning on this issue, because they are fighting at the State level.

Right To Work States Now Dominate U.S. Automobile Manufacturing, by Mark J. Perry, at aei-ideas.org. Business seeks lower costs, and labor is usually one of their biggest. When labor is free from Union coercion, it chooses against unions. This benefits labor,business, and consumer.

Big Labor (And Socialists) Hate Tipping, at economicpolicyjournal.com. First of all, I thought big labor is a bunch of socialists. Here is a quote about tipping from the minimum wage queen, Seattle City Councilmember Socialist Kashama Sawant; “We don’t want any worker to be beholden to the mood of the customer on any given day.” This is the difference between free markets and central planning. The consumer rules in a free market, and the planners rule in a socialist system. Seattle you are getting exactly what you deserve by electing this jewel into office.

Flight Attendant Makes Best Pre-Flight Speech Ever, at economicpolicyjournal.com. This is good.
