Energy Straits

Yesterday, we teetered on the verge of a shooting war with Iran, something that neocons are salivating over, but something that the rest of the country has little stomach for. And, for what? To keep the Strait of Hormuz unmolested, i.e. preserve shipping lanes for...

Born of Sin

The question arises with increasing frequency and alarm: What’s with this rekindled love for socialism? Socialism’s variants killed over a hundred million people last century, kept billions in poverty, and destroyed liberty and human dignity around the...

Do You Cilantro?

Some of my blog-spirations (if I dare elevate them to that level of sagacity) come from seemingly disconnected things that somehow connect themselves inside the labyrinths of my brain. One such occurred yesterday, where several disparate topics came into confluence. A...

Go Ahead, Burn That Flag

RTFM!

A modern colloquialism goes: “Read the fucking manual,” or RTFM for short. Robert Mueller has given the nation the Bad-Finger, and told us to RTFM!. The book is closed on the collusion/coordination probe involving Russian election interference. But he...

Weaponizing Prison Violence

Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign manager and current federal prison inmate, is being moved from his current digs in Scranton, PA, (low/minimum security, which is typical for white collar, non-violent convicts) to New York City’s Riker’s Island, at the...

A Hamburger Tuesday…

The Mueller report, which some thought would end the “remove Trump” movement, one way or the other (haha, what naive fools we are!), has accomplished precisely nothing on that front. While none but the most slavering of the TDS hordes will continue to...

Your Mattress or Your Life

EDITOR’S NOTE: This guest post is a companion to the recently published Robbing Mattresses. I’m sure you’ve heard the narrative. The wealthy just get wealthier, and the poor just get poorer. Without massive government intervention, perhaps even a...

Robbing Mattresses

Other People’s Money (OPM) is a wonderful thing, especially when those Other People have a lot of it and you have a lot of ideas as to how it should be spent. Progressive economics, distilled down to its essence, brings us to that simple conclusion. One problem...

Corporate Politics Duality
