OMGosh! This is fabulous!

I’ve occasionally said (tongue in cheek) that illegal immigrants should be catapulted back over the border. We’ll be kind . . . we’ll even give them a parachute. This article has an even better plan! I love it!   Time To Do That Which We Are Accused By Lindell Denham -April 5, 2021 Are you a ‘normal, […]

Apparently Bernie Sanders is advocating a free bachelor’s degree for all and someone on Laissez Faire Capitalism posted a mocking cartoon.  I took exception to Bernie Sanders’ socialistic thinking and posted this: This is so interesting. It speaks to a complete failure to understand economics and the mechanics of supply and demand. The question regarding […]

This morning the Tea Party’s Facebook feed has another “bad Obama” posting.  Various conservative groups run this sort of thing almost weekly.  The latest is a repeat of how “bad” Obama is because he vacations in Hawaii and he’s off to do it again soon and it costs $4 million and “ew, isn’t that horrible”.  […]

Today is Milton Friedman’s 100th birthday.  There are few people for whom I have as much respect, nor any I laud more frequently.  In celebration of his birthday, I’d like to extend this idea. What if, in the process of writing new legislation, a short treatise was required that referenced all the prior related legislation, […]

In my RSS feed (I use Bloglines as I’m still boycotting Google) I have over 30 hard and soft news sources.  I can get away with having this many because most don’t produce a lot of data daily.  For example, one of my favorite singers, Diana Krall, adds concert dates every couple months.  I subscribe […]

If you’ve been following the news, you know SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) had hearings last week on three things involving the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act. On day one they heard arguments to determine if they could hear arguments . . . it was one of those “it’s a tax!”, “no, […]

Have you had days when you didn’t feel particularly nice?  I think we all do. Now that I’m older, I generally try to rein in the chaos-generating waves, where in the past I would have let my pencil fly.  So, here is the kinder, gentler take on Sandra Fluke and the argument she’s put forth. […]

I watched the Senate’s hearing on “Could Tax Reform Boost Business Investment and Job Creation?“.  It’s fascinating. I’ve noted the important parts below. Listen to any bits that interest you. There are four tax reform presenters (Entin, Stone, Mastromarco and Hanlon) and about a dozen lawmakers listening and answering questions. Each presenter has five minutes […]

One of the sites that’s doing a good job of highlighting the disparity between liberal spin and cold hard fact is the Heritage Foundation.  I tried to get to their spin-off Heritage Action this morning and got a 503 (no server available) this morning.  Denial of service attack was the first thing that came to […]

China Bashing

I’ve seen a lot of China bashing, blaming China for our trade deficits and how the economy is all China’s fault. What a load of crap. Anyone who has studied Hayek and/or watched Milton Freidman’s videos on economics knows better. It’s OUR fault we have a trade deficit. Our government keeps trying to pick winners […]
