Sarah Palin as quoted in the NYT


Sarah Palin as quoted in the NYT, “It’s the collusion of big government and big business and big finance to the detriment of all the rest — to the little guys. It’s a slap in the face to our small business owners — the true entrepreneurs, the job creators accounting for 70 percent of the […]

Hoping Obama Fails: Why Rush Was Right


I remember the outrage in January of 2009 when Rush Limbaugh said on this show, “I hope Obama fails.”  It came back to me this month when Joe Scarborough, member of the 1994 Republican class, turned MSNBC sycophant said, I’m rooting for the President, we all are rooting for the President, if Rush Limbaugh is […]

T’was a Big Week for Space – Part 2


In part 1 of  “Space, The Statist’s Final Frontier”, I shared how ETs are going to save our economy…or at least how Paul Krugman thinks they could. In part two, we have two University of Pennsylvania profs and a guy from NASA who have written a paper about the likely scenarios if ETs decided to […]

SOTD: The Bodeans – Closer to Free


I’m thinking that this may be the official theme song for my podcast and radio show.  I just wish it wasn’t already the theme song to a d-baggy 90s TV show.

T’was a Big Week for Space – Part 1


Wow.  Statists and collectivists we are in full-blown panic mode on several fronts.  Since their shrillness and predictions of doom, having lost their effect, they have turned to alien invasion as their scare tactic of last resort.  First we have an odd exchange on Fareed Zakaria‘s show where Paul Krugman actually suggests that an invasion […]

A Lesson for Interviewers


MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer learns the hard way… AGAIN.  You should always know the answer to a question before you ask it in an interview, especially when you believe you have a “gotcha”. For the record: Mo Brooks graduated from Grissom High School in 1972 (where he was all-city in baseball and an active member on […]

Proof We Can Cut Spending Everywhere


One suggestion I have made to get us out of the overspending-deficit mess we are in is to stop arguing over where we should cut spending.  We can easily find 10% waste in every single thing government does. So I suggest an across the board 10% reduction in all spending. E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.

Who’s Really Responsible for Monopolies?


On my 93.1 WIBC program  Friday 7/1/2011, we detailed the source of most monopolistic behavior in American business.  It’s not evil companies, it’s government control, regulation and meddling in the free market.  In a truly free market, monopolies can only exist for a brief blip in time, usually when a technology or idea is new.  […]
