And the award for the best economics book goes to Thomas Sowell for Basic Economics

I had extremely high expectations before I began reading this book.  This is the third book of his I’ve read, along with a great many articles.  Basic Economics greatly surpassed my lofty expectations.  It is both extremely informative and highly entertaining.  Each and every page is full of knowledge demonstrating how free market capitalism is … Continue reading And the award for the best economics book goes to Thomas Sowell for Basic Economics

Fascism on the Political Left has become all too common

The title of this article and subject matter may anger some and even offend others.  Sometimes the truth hurts.  Fascism, which I define as an intolerance and hostility towards ideas that are different resulting in censorship, has often been a component of the political left.   Beginning with President Trump winning the presidency back in 2016, … Continue reading Fascism on the Political Left has become all too common

Decoding the Declaration of Independence

Today marks the 243rd anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.  By lucky coincidence my weekly article falls on this auspicious holiday.  This to me is a perfect opportunity to discuss our most seminal document in detail, something that very  seldom takes place in schools and colleges any longer. As you can see … Continue reading Decoding the Declaration of Independence

The Bladensburg Cross, Supreme Court Precedent, and the Dirty Dozen

On June 20th the Supreme Court handed down their decision in regard to the 32 foot tall Blandensberg cross, which is located in Maryland.  The Supreme Court ruled correctly that the cross does not violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.  The rational behind that decision was however deeply flawed, leaving the door wide … Continue reading The Bladensburg Cross, Supreme Court Precedent, and the Dirty Dozen

Metallica – Heavy Metal Monsters with a Libertarian Message

Ever since high school I’ve been a huge Metallica fan.  For some reason I’ve always enjoyed violent music, whether it be Punk, alternative hardcore, or thrash metal.  Most people who know me find this strange because I’m such a mellow, soft spoken,  nonviolent person.  The message contained in Metallica lyrics appeals more to me than … Continue reading Metallica – Heavy Metal Monsters with a Libertarian Message

Did Capitalism Really Kill Millions?

I’ve seen the ludicrous assertion that capitalism has a body count comparable to that of socialism bouncing around the internet with regularity.  That assertion has also become the central theme of far too many college courses.  To begin the research necessary to debunk this myth I did a Google search for the phrase “capitalism body … Continue reading Did Capitalism Really Kill Millions?

The Ultimate in Hypocrisy

On the same day I encountered two articles on Breitbart News that perfectly illustrate the hypocrisy of Hollywood in particular, and progressivism in general. The first article is Hollywood Freaks After Alabama Passes Abortion Ban: ‘This Ends with Impeachment and People in the Streets’.  According to the article: The Hollywood left, from Lady Gaga to … Continue reading The Ultimate in Hypocrisy

Corporatism, Capitalism, and the Constitution

Capitalism has very much become the boogieman amongst progressives.  It has been blamed for causing mass poverty, destroying the environment, and so many other evils in the United States.  Corporations are an even bigger boogieman than capitalism for progressives,  They’ve become the number one villain in movies and tv series produced by ultra-liberal Hollywood. Capitalism … Continue reading Corporatism, Capitalism, and the Constitution

Microsoft introduces the first ever Newspeak compliant word processor

The title of this article was the phrase that immediately leapt to mind when I saw the Fast Company Compass article titled Microsoft Word is getting politically correct. Here is how the author describes this new insidious feature, which will be included in a future release. Microsoft will soon preview a version of Word that … Continue reading Microsoft introduces the first ever Newspeak compliant word processor

Venezuela perfectly illustrates the importance of the Second Amendment

In Venezuela last week there was an uprising which so far has failed to overthrow the regime of President Nicolas Maduro.  Despite the abysmal conditions the people of that once prosperous nation live under, any uprising by the people has very little chance of success thanks to a long history of strict gun control and … Continue reading Venezuela perfectly illustrates the importance of the Second Amendment

The central theme for the 2020 election will be Individualism vs. Collectivism

For the past 100 years or so there has been an ideological struggle dividing the United States.  On one side are those who believe that each and every individual is the most important political entity.  On the other side are those that believe the needs of the individual must be subservient to the needs of … Continue reading The central theme for the 2020 election will be Individualism vs. Collectivism

Earth Day – A progressive holy day overflowing with propaganda

Once again this year I failed to observe Earth Day.  I take great pride in having ignored Earth Day every year since I was forced take part in the festivities while in school. I’ve never been a fan of paganism or Marxist indoctrination which is why this whole Earth Day thing never appealed to me. … Continue reading Earth Day – A progressive holy day overflowing with propaganda

The claim that the unborn are not alive is one of the deadliest scientific fallacies

This one scientific fallacy was used to condemn 42 million unborn children to death worldwide just last year. Every time I watch a science program about the possibility that life exists on some other planet or moon in this solar system I take careful note of how the scientists in that program define the type … Continue reading The claim that the unborn are not alive is one of the deadliest scientific fallacies

Nothing destroys a nation’s healthcare system more thoroughly than mandating free care

Mandating that healthcare be provided for free appears to be a noble and worthy goal for any government, one that progressives have been advocating for decades.  When put into place, mandating free healthcare has always produced disastrous results.  The progressives running for president should take careful note of this before continuing to call for Medicare … Continue reading Nothing destroys a nation’s healthcare system more thoroughly than mandating free care

The Government created by our Constitution is not a Democracy – it is a Republic

One of the most common mistruths spoken about the government of the United States is that it is a Democracy.  That could not be further from the truth.  Not only is it wrong to label our government a democracy, it is dangerous because Progressives for the past century have been steadily transforming our government from … Continue reading The Government created by our Constitution is not a Democracy – it is a Republic
