Government by ideological fantasy – at the expense of actual facts – is a terrible idea. So too is government of, by and for the donors. Far too often government regulators and bureaucrats ignore Reality – to tilt at ideological windmills. And WAY too often government becomes one giant stenographer for contributors – writing laws […]

Government Choosing Businesses for Preference or Punishment is Always Wrong

Posted: November 21, 2015 at 1:51 pm   /   Politics

President Barack Obama has dramatically ramped up the Washington, D.C., giant Crony-fest. Where economic sectors and companies Obama and his Democrats like get the gold mine – and the rest of us get the shaft. For instance, there was $80 billion for “green energy” in the awful 2009 “Stimulus” bill –80% of that coin went […]

Keynesian Economics Is Wrong: Bigger Gov’t Is Not Stimulus

Posted: March 10, 2014 at 6:40 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories, Videos

This is a short video showing why politicians, since before the 1920’s, have been hurting the economy and continue to do so. Obama believes, for instance, that things like infrastructure spending, minimum wage, welfare programs, and growing government all help economic growth when, in fact, they don’t. They actually dilute the economy. Just look how […]

GW Bush’s policies expanded the federal bureaucracy, not as much as Obama’s, but we entered the ‘Great Recession’ (read Depression) with growing debt and a failing […]

Posted: November 6, 2013 at 10:45 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

Obamacare will force children lucky enough to have full-time jobs to rent Ryder trucks to transport mom and dad’s stuff to their abodes. Maybe President Barack Obama would consider issuing […]
