Bad Law Keeps People Poor

“Too many rules” is the problem!  That is what keeps people poor.  (See article, link below)  Entrepreneurs and businessmen cannot do business with all of these stifling rules.  Where do these rules come from?  Government regulations.  And, regulations are an integral part of fascism, not of capitalism.  The essence of capitalism is freedom.  How do you get a regulation out of that?

Civil Asset Forfeiture in Hawaii

Is Governor David Ige’s veto of a bill to reform civil asset forfeiture in Hawaii proof of corruption?  I am not aware of any valid reason for the veto.  Civil asset forfeiture has been an effective tool when properly used against illegal drug cartels, but it is now being used inappropriately and is being abused all across the United States.  Some of the results are blatantly unfair!  Continue reading

Who You Callin’ Fascist?

I just read the article below on the internet and left the following comment.  I feel both frustrated and exasperated!  Ignorance will be the reason the U.S. will become a dictatorship!  But, I must do whatever I can to prevent it, or at least to delay it.  That is in effect what President Trump is doing–and that is why the power lusters hate him so much because he is messing up their plans.  Continue reading

NZ Prime Minister Does ‘Not Understand’ Why We Won’t Give Up Guns

We do not care if the NZ Prime Minister is confused.  That is her problem, not ours  We value our freedom.  History shows that it is difficult to impose tyranny on an armed populace.  That is the bottom line reason why our Founding Fathers gave us the 2nd Amendment.  Its purpose is to keep us free, and it provides us the means to enforce our freedom.  Without the 2nd Amendment, the rest of the Bill of Rights is unenforceable!  Continue reading

One of the Biggest Decisions of Your Life

What is one of the biggest decisions of your life that you must make?  It is whether to live free or to live as a slave.  If you do not consciously make that choice, then you will probably become a slave whether you like it or not–by default.  Yes, in the 21st century, that is the basic choice confronting all of us.  Let me elaborate a little.  Continue reading

America’s Socialist Revolution has officially begun

The article below was sent to me today by a good friend, and I felt compelled to write a commentary on it.  I finished the commentary before I finished reading the article.  But, after finally reading the complete article, I just laughed.  My commentary was perfect!  Philosophy is so prescient, after all!

The Ethics of Socialism is altruism, the ethics of self-sacrifice.  As the article below states, the socialists are not happy with a win/win situation which is the hallmark of capitalism’s bilateral contract.  The agreement, the “deal”, will not occur unless both parties benefit from it and are happy with it.  It is through a countless number of win/win deals that capitalism creates wealth and prosperity for all.  As they say, a rising tide lifts all boats.  Even the “poor” in America are wealthy by the standards of any third world country.  That is the reason why, for example, I consider the idea of reparations to the descendants of American slaves ridiculous!  My message to them would be to aware of and count your blessings.  Being born an American citizen is a huge benefit.  The enormous number of illegal “immigrants” here confirms this.  Do not be an ingrate! Continue reading

Socialism and Its Consequences

Amazon will not be moving its headquarters to New York City after all.  Long Island City will lose 25,000+ jobs, a long term tax base, and the wealth that Amazon would have created there.  What politicians say does matter, and Amazon listened.  Who you vote for does matter, because politicians inevitably implement policies that are consistent with their ideologies–and that has consequences!  Continue reading

A Collectivist (Socialist) Utopia is a Fraud

The three major forms or variations of Collectivism are Socialism, Fascism, and Communism.  The differences between them are minor.  Communism is the most extreme version–it is pure tyranny.  Under socialism the govt owns the means of production.  Under fascism the means of production are privately owned but controlled by the govt through regulations.  The mixed economy (mixture of capitalism and collectivism) in the U.S. is mostly fascist!  (Note: “crony capitalism” is fascism, the “politics-of-pull”, not capitalism.)  (Note also that “Nazi” is a German abbreviation for the National Socialist Party of Germany.)  Continue reading

Military’s “Active Denial System”

We cannot allow the caravan of illegal “immigrants” to cross our border into the U.S. and set a precedent.  That would force us to process them through an overloaded system causing all manner of problems: political, legal, and practical.  We need to fix our immigration system, but this is not the way.  ADS sounds like the perfect tool, but we must have the resolve to use it.  Continue reading

Is It “Hate Speech” to Tell the Truth?

The blatant and obvious bias in the mainstream news media is astounding.  They have completely abandoned reason while the alternative news media is still trying to play fairly according to the rules of civility.  This does not work when your opponent is emotionally berserk.  It is irrational to attempt to be reasonable in the face of such irrationality.  At the very least, one must point out the opposition’s ridiculous position, and then attack him and make fun of him!  One must point out, specifically, why the opponent is not making any sense.  Continue reading
