French Flee Socialism. How Long before a U.S. Exodus?

french socialism The numbers of expatriates in London and elsewhere are growing as the French flee socialism. While we typically think of the French as “more socialist” than Americans, we need to remember that we are characterizing an entire nation of people. There are plenty of French men and women who hate socialism and are simply trapped by it, just like we are. Thus, record numbers of the French are leaving their homeland. As the Independent reports: “French say au revoir to France: Over two Read more [...]

Why Conservatives Should Hope Lindsay Lohan’s Lawsuit Fails

Grand-Theft-Auto-V Lindsay Lohan’s lawsuit over Grand Theft Auto 5 would set a precedent allowing politicians to censor parodies. Saturday Night Live mocks politicians by dressing in their likeness all the time. The First Amendment guarantees that they and everyone else are free to do so. I don’t see how that practice could stand if Lindsay Lohan won her lawsuit against Take 2 Interactive for allegedly “using her image” in their video game, Grand Theft Auto 5. I realize most conservatives probably Read more [...]

Mexican Billionaire Predicts Three-Day Work Week. Why?

work week Why do our elites want a three-day work week? Bait and switch? Social Security bailout? Other? God said that we should rest one day and labor six days (for awhile this was expressed in the opposite order, but Jesus’ resurrection brought many changes to the cosmos). Carlos Slim, the Mexican Billionaire, wants us to believe he is more generous than God—he wants a three-day work week. CNN Money reports on this without a trace of skepticism or even independence of mind: “Carlos Slim: Read more [...]

Joke About Ebola, Get Visited by Scary, Costumed People

no jokes Word to the wise: you should not joke about Ebola or about visiting Africa in the recent past—especially if you have just sneezed. Remember, folks: Airplanes and airports are NO HUMOR ZONES! [See also, "Private, For-Profit, Company Fighting Ebola Successfully."] A passenger sneezed, and joked that he had just come from Africa. This video shows what happened next (especially at 1 minute and 40 seconds and following). Once we landed in Punta Cana we were told by the flight attendants Read more [...]

The Challenge of Vladimir Putin

obama putin 2 Western media have warned that Vladimir Putin is the modern Adolph Hitler (after years of telling us the former leader of Iran was Hitler, but... I digress). According to this intelligence analysis from Stratfor, however, Putin's grasp on power in Russia is wobbling rather severely. What's the truth? A journalist friend in Moscow agrees that it is a perilous time on many fronts there, and the outcome is all but certain. Despite public proclamations of a truce or cease-fire in Ukraine, I Read more [...]

Banksters Demand No Accountability

bankster bonus Two Banksters quit because they don’t want to be subject to justice. I think we should propose these same rules in the United States, and see how many shifty financial rats jump off the banking ship. This proves criminals are smart enough to see the handwriting on the wall. [Also about HSBC: “International Bank Gets Away With Money Laundering For Terrorists and Drug Cartels.”] From the Daily Mail: “Two leading HSBC directors quit in protest at tough new rules that will punish Read more [...]

Census staffer: Quality of Data = None

data vortex John Crudele of the New York Post reports, “Denver Census staffer brings data falsification to light.” A field supervisor in the Census Bureau’s Denver region has informed her organization’s higher-ups, the head of the Commerce Department and congressional investigators that she believes economic data collected by her office is being falsified.

U.S. Decline: Ranks #36 for Protecting Private Property

they hate us for our freedoms Behind U.S. decline in economic freedom is a story of decline in spiritual freedom. As long as government makes itself the tool of injustice—failing to uphold its basic mandate to protect life (you shall not murder) and refusing to defend people's private ownership (you shall not steal)--prosperity will not return to the United States. That is exactly what we see in stories like this one: “The US ranks #36 in the world for respecting property rights. Is this freedom?” According to Read more [...]

DHS Withhold Evidence & That Is Just Fine

Obama corruption Gee, and what would happen to a mere mortal, like me, if I were to "withhold evidence" from a Federal investigation? I'm sure I'd get to keep my freedom, and my job… Yeah, right! –Bob Allen Bob is absolutely right. He is commenting on this story at the Washington Post website: “Aides knew of possible White House link to Cartagena, Colombia, prostitution scandal.” As nearly two dozen Secret Service agents and members of the military were punished or fired following a 2012 prostitution Read more [...]

Democracy in Hong Kong? Only Over Beijing's Dead Body

Hong Kong Democracy in Hong Kong? Only Over Beijing's Dead Body -- But Hopefully Not Over The Demonstrators' Bodies. Hong Kong is part of China, but enjoys a charmed existence.  Administered separately from the rest of the People’s Republic of China, the territory respects civil liberties while hosting the world’s freest economy.  But democratic Hong Kong is not. Demonstrators are pressing Beijing to make good on its promise to Great Britain to provide what London never did while the territory Read more [...]
