Ban Everything

This is how our parents wheeled the brood around in the 60s. Before there were Safety Nazis and an omnipotent Nanny State. Now, such a thing would warrant a visit from Child (un)Protective Services.

Unenforceable Laws Work So Well

Again, government policy to “ban” behavior only shifts the burden to another form of the same behavior. And the results are even worse. Folks now hold their phones down low instead of upward, as they drive, causing them to take their eyes off the road entirely, causing more crashes. It’s illegal to text while driving in [...]

Fed, Yellen, Interest Rates, Capital Markets – Roll Your Dice

Saturday, August 22, 2015 8:26 No Comments

To quote the mediameisters: “U.S. economic conditions are getting close to warranting America’s first interest rate hike since 2006. Or at least that’s what officials at the Federal Reserve thought in July…” How many times have you seen that scaremongering tactic over the last two years?

This very story: A “concerned” resident called police on a man walking “very deliberately” down an Arlington, Virginia sidewalk with a hybrid Confederate flag over his shoulder. The flag had the Gadsden “Don’t Tread On Me” snake in the middle. The subversive man also committed the crime of “walking with a purpose,” and also, he [...]

Detroit’s Guerilla Road Repair

Saturday, August 8, 2015 7:09 2 Comments

In the little enclave that is Hamtramck, Michigan, they call it Hamtramck Guerilla Road Repair. The county and city can’t get anything done, and the state consistently threatens residents that the roads cannot be fixed without extracting more and more of our money.

Kraft Slices Are Not “Cheese”

Thursday, August 6, 2015 19:18 2 Comments

Kraft no-cheese. A rather deathly pale, chemicalized product referred to as “food.” In their (Kraft) words: “A thin strip of the individual packaging film may remain adhered to the slice after the wrapper has been removed. If he film sticks to the slice and is not removed, it could potentially cause a choking hazard.” Although this [...]
