21st Century Regulation

Monday, November 16, 2015 17:21 No Comments

As quoted from “the White House“: “To help our economy grow to its full potential, we need to create a 21st century regulatory system.” The John Locke Foundation calls this White House report “a case for significantly curtailing occupational licensing in North Carolina and elsewhere” and “a major boost” from the White House. In fact, this report [...]

Volkswagen and Foreign Policy

Tuesday, September 22, 2015 20:33 1 Comment

Government Motors executives knowingly kept putting faulty ignition switches on vehicles, playing the numbers game and covering up its con game that killed 120+ people. Then they pocket the US Justice Department and walk away with inconsequential fines and no criminal prosecution. The Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) will have 3 corporate officers/managers sent to [...]

Unenforceable Laws Work So Well

Sunday, August 23, 2015 7:09 No Comments

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 [...]

Reflection on 1984

I love the Students For Orwell website for its deft headline, and I’ll ignore that it hasn’t been updated in two years: Students for an Orwellian Society Because 2013 is 29 years too late.

“What If…”: Judge Napolitano

Monday, January 6, 2014 7:50 3 Comments

This classic from my favorite orator is worth watching again and again and again. Judge Andrew Napolitano on the rigged establishment and public opinion as a “manufactured narrative.” Except I do not think this particular segment is responsible for him being fired from FOX.

Vancouver Bans Doorknobs

Thursday, November 28, 2013 17:26 No Comments

Yep, new building code legislation is banning doorknobs in Vancouver. From Slate: As University of British Columbia professor Tim Stainton explained in the article, the doorknob ban is in the spirit of a concept known as universal design, which holds that environments should be built to be usable by a majority of people regardless of [...]

Over at Robert Wenzel’s blog, Chris Rossini has written a great piece on peace: how people desire to live in harmony in spite of a government that exists to create political partisanships with divergent interests.

Beyond Being Mugged By the State

Friday, September 20, 2013 20:51 No Comments

I may be able to one-up LewRockwell’s post in terms of a story about being mugged by the gang of thieves writ large. William Davidson passed on in 2009 with a net worth of $3 billion. He is the founder of Detroit-based Guardian Industries, and he owned the Detroit Pistons, the Detroit Shock (WNBA), and the [...]

The Surveillance Apparatus State

Saturday, June 15, 2013 20:03 No Comments

Leonard Pitts writes about the tyranny of the Surveillance State in the Miami Herald: If ever tyranny overtakes this land of the sometimes free and home of the intermittently brave, it probably won’t, contrary to the fever dreams of gun rights extremists, involve jack-booted government thugs rappelling down from black helicopters. Rather, it will involve changes to [...]

Social (Un)Security: “We’ll Keep Your Dough.”

Thursday, May 30, 2013 10:45 1 Comment
