Couple Good Quotes

by on Apr.20, 2016, under Truisms

“When more Americans prefer freebies to freedom, these great United States will become a fertile ground for tyranny.” Allen West

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” George Washington

Two Million Votes

by on Apr.19, 2016, under Do the Math

That’s all that will make the difference says Ed Morrissey in his new book, “Going Red”. Red as in Republican, not red as in communist.

The book argues that 2,000,000 voters in just 7 counties across the country will determine whether we get turned around or continue the course we’re on in this country.

Good luck.

Unhappy Libs

Rush had an interesting observation today:

RUSH: “No, what’s actually interesting is that the Bernie Sanders voters, they’re ticked off, they’re ticked off at the failures of liberalism. They don’t know it, but that’s what’s got them upset. They have all this student loan debt; there wasn’t supposed to be any. They’ve got all these health care expenses; it was supposed to be free, and everybody was supposed to have it. There’s all this racial strife out there. That was supposed to be ended seven years ago when Obama got elected. America was supposed to be loved and adored. There weren’t supposed to be any more wars anywhere. The military was to have been neutered. None of it’s happened.”

At the Heart of It

by on Apr.13, 2016, under Principles

So, what’s the basic philosophy or premise of socialism versus limited government?

Socialism assumes people are terribly dishonest, greedy, ignorant, misguided, immoral, etc. such that all must be managed by the state.

Limited government folks see people exactly opposite to that.

F is for Farmers

by on Apr.07, 2016, under Consequences, Do the Math

As in “F You!”, courtesy of the State of California. I realize most people don’t believe that California is headed in the wrong direction, disastrously, but it’s true nonetheless. Just do the math. Here’s a good article on the devastating effects the recent minimum wage hike will have on California farming communities (on the heels of other stupid environmental and economic legislated pressures). And the overtime pay increase. Ready for the Neo Dustbowl?


“You would think that such a valuable economic resource [farming] would be cherished, promoted and helped at every turn. After all, we are talking about producers of food – the most basic societal necessity along with water. Incredibly, that is not the case in California. Instead, the California farmer bears the brunt of many a legislative or regulatory bulldozer.”

“Keep in mind that the law [minimum wage hike] applies uniformly to the entire state. That is the very definition of irrational economics. Here is why: The law applies equally to San Francisco and Mendota.”

“The more something costs, the less of it is acquired. That basic law of economics applies to cars and jobs alike, and rakes its havoc on jobs and the minimally experienced after political laws are passed.”

“Why would the government union do that? That’s easy – according to the state’s Legislative Analyst Office, the minimum wage boost will result in $3.6 billion a year in increased wages for the public employee union workers – none of whom will lose their jobs because they are immune from market forces.” The government leviathan grows…

The article.

It’s Up To You

by on Apr.06, 2016, under Character, Consequences, Truisms

No matter who wins this election (or any other), it’s still up to you to make your life. Each candidate may make it harder or easier than another, but it’s still up to you.

That may be the best lesson in life.
