CATO Loves Welfare

Monday, June 12, 2017 10:59 No Comments

I never signed any contract at all – let alone a “social” one – but somehow, I am expected to sign a “new” social contract to amend the one I never signed in the first place. In the video within the article, that Zucker guy says that we should have a society that measures progress [...]

Slate: Oh No, a Shortage of Dead People

Friday, December 30, 2016 16:20 No Comments

Will mean even fewer healthy organs available for transplant to save lives. Only Slate could come up with this dilemma: potentially safer, self-driving cars will muck up the government’s failed organ donor system. It’s not difficult to do the math on how driverless cars could change the equation. An estimated 94 percent of motor-vehicle accidents [...]

A black man was tasered (as the story goes now), held down by two thugs with badges, and summarily executed. Witnesses: “there was no gun in his hand.” According to the Washington Post and its Fatal Force ticker, thus far in 2016 killer cops have taken 505 lives by gunshot, as well as 990 in [...]

Students Create Hate Crimes For Fun and Race-Baiting

Friday, February 26, 2016 21:20 No Comments

The hate crime brouhaha that surrounded this event at the University of Albany became the usual pc, anti-white, everyone-is-racist, hate crime divisiveness. Now the truth has come out. From the Washington Post: When Ariel Agudio called 911 in January, she told a dispatcher that she had been the victim of a racially charged crime. “They were [...]

Bernanke Book

Is anyone else chuckling at this self-glorifying book title? It’s like a serial arsonist writing a book: The Courage to Yell “Fire.” My fiancé (I can’t take the Photoshop credit) came up with an alternative version since Ben’s beard deserves much more admiration than his courage.

REI Opts Out of Mad Friday

Tuesday, October 27, 2015 6:04 No Comments

I guess there won’t be any riots at REI this coming Black Friday, so all cameras are on Walmart. The store is closed and employees have the day off. REI is taking direct aim at the frenzied consumerism that dominates the holidays with a message to do the exact opposite of what Black Friday demands. [...]

Following car sales can provide insight into the high time preferences of the car-buying masses. Compact car sales vs truck & SUV sales go in lockstep with gas prices with a focus only on today, never tomorrow. Low gas prices, along with almost-zero (or zero) interest rates, is driving this crazed auto bubble. Another one that will [...]

Children Regulated on Playgrounds

Saturday, September 26, 2015 7:23 No Comments

A Washington school bans the game of tag to ensure the “physical and emotional safety” of students. Folks in the media can’t seem to understand why “safety” is a consideration, yet the kids are being encouraged to play the school’s rough-and-tumble team sports. Of course, the ban doesn’t make a lick of sense, particularly in the context of what [...]

Grilled Cheese No-Bubble?

Monday, February 16, 2015 21:59 No Comments

To quote the article: …with the goal of becoming the largest operator in the gourmet grilled cheese space. Surely we should have known there *was* such as thing as a “grilled cheese space”? That said, I am a big fan of food trucks – they are very successful at a Mom-and-Pop entrepreneurial level, serving urban [...]
