#DontDoubleMyGovernment

The solution to unemployment, college expenses, the debt and the deficit is not found in another government program. It is found in less government programs. It is not found in another hand-out from the government. It is found in the American people. It is found in the American character — resilience, hope, determination, perseverance.

The Nascent Requiem — Part III

The issue is not about the availability of health care, it is not about massive effects imposed on the interstate market by a failure to purchase an item, it’s not even about an activity or commerce. This law does not even meet the broad standards purposed by the law’s supporters. The only reason Congress would pass this law would be to expand the power of the government.

If the costs imposed by the failure to purchase health insurance justify regulation under the Commerce Clause, how much more should we allow the government to require individuals exercise? Indeed, the federal government has far more justification to require exercise than they do to require the purchase of health insurance.

The Nascent Requiem — Part I

Unfortunately, fiction is so convolved with politics that when we test politics with reality we often finish with confusion. But it must be done. Testing fiction with fiction will only produce fiction, but testing fiction with reality at least gives sensibility a fighting chance. Sensibility was given such a fighting chance against fiction and fabrication in the Supreme Court last month.

CREEPY

The argument against the Chinese model is the strongest because it is both economic and moral. Stern isn’t calling for a change in economic systems, rather a political change. A change from the republic our Founders created to an authoritarian regime that controls a quasi-capitalist market. We already have the capitalism, Stern wants us to adopt the authoritarianism.

The beauty of the American Dream is that it’s whatever you make it out to be. If you want to be a graphical designer, you have the freedom to do so. Just like your freedom to be a banker, investor, bartender, hotel manager, trash guy, or business owner. The American Dream lies in liberty, not money or things.

We Will Fight Them On the… Whatever…

Obama has left all of the ideological doors open so that he can pop in and out of them at the times when they are popular. In his attempts to look strong he makes himself look weak because trying to prove his strength makes him look insecure. Yet, if he does not show some courage and leadership, he will be accused of the same fault. He does not cling to an ideology — just to himself.

Debt Man Walking

The Democrats never proposed a plan of their own, they just sat in the peanut gallery and criticized Republican plans. The Republicans adjusted and adjusted their ideas until it was something neither party could live with — and passed it. What a load of silly fools we elected. It’s a shame they reflect those who elected them.

Ubiquitous Malevolence

If everyone was basically good, if we lived in Utopia, Wikipedia would work. But since politics exists, it doesn’t. They might have a date or an established fact you can get anywhere else, but it’s not a source for objectivity on hot topics. Wait, if Wikipedia is only good for information I can get anywhere else, doesn’t that mean it’s effectively pointless?

Impetus Deductions

Carter left the Treasury dry with his inflation and spending, it’s impossible to add Carter’s bad revenues to Reagan and legitimately conclude that Reagan had bad revenues. You have to look at revenue growth relative to Presidents as they change their policies. Let’s consider relevant, hard facts. . .

Welcome to North Korea. You’re free to come in, but not to go out. Behold the power of North Korea. A prison state with endless food shortages, huge electricity problems, starvation, poverty and forced plastic eye-lid surgery for waitresses.

Espial Adumbrations

The British historian, Timothy Garton Ash, travelling in Poland during the time of the strikes [in the 1980s], asked the demonstrators faced off against the police what they hoped to achieve. The memorable reply: ‘Forty years of socialism, and there’s still no toilet paper!’” (p. 48) The Year that Changed the World: The Untold Story […]
