Wow. This is even more disgusting than the United scandal

Wow. This is even more disgusting than the United scandal

April 17, 2017 Sovereign Valley Farm, Chile Last week the Internet was ablaze with disgust after a man was physically dragged off a United Airlines flight. What’s amazing, though, is that there are countless cases of another industry abusing its customers in far, far worse ways than the airlines. I’m talking, of course, about the […]

Commentary: Real science must guide policy

. By Paul Driessen Climate alarmists use faulty science and bald assertions to demand end to fossil fuels All too many alarmist climate scientists have received millions in taxpayer grants over the years, relied on computer models that do not reflect real-world observations, attacked and refused to debate scientists who disagree with manmade climate cataclysm claims, […]

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — Anatomy of a National Psychotic Break

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — Anatomy of a National Psychotic Break

. By L. Neil Smith  It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly six months since the “wrong” Presidential candidate got elected, and half the country went insane. Democrats, liberals, socialists, communists,  left-wing collectivists of all kinds make up fantasies in their fevered brains about social, political and economic phenomena, about philosophical principals, scientific facts, […]

Jesus of Nazareth, enemy of the state, executed for treason

  By Jerry Bowyer Jesus of Nazareth was executed today on the orders of the Roman State. Method of execution: Crucifixion. The charge under Roman law was treason, and under Herodian law blasphemy against the Temple.

Trump’s Security Tab: A Good Case for Separation of Church and State

. By Thomas L. Knapp Palm Beach County, Florida Commissioner Dave Kerner wants to tax a resort. Nothing unusual about that — politicians love to mug tourists in the name of “economic development” —  except that the resort in question is Mar-a-Lago, US president Donald Trump’s private club and preferred getaway spot when he tires […]

“Relative Truth”: A Deadly Strategy

“Relative Truth”:  A Deadly Strategy

. By Phil Erwin The world watched the videos in horror: Syrian men, women, children, even babies drowning in mouth-foam caused by (almost certainly) sarin gas. Retching, convulsing, eyes wide in terror and incomprehension, or staring vacantly into the abyss.   So much for all the pious proclamations that Syria had no more chemical weapons. […]

School Choice, Uber and Accountability

School Choice, Uber and Accountability

  . By LARRY SAND  . Betsy DeVos’ ridesharing analogy is spot on, but draws Randi’s wrath.  At the Brookings Institution last week, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos gave a talk in which she drew parallels between school choice and the ascendancy of ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft. “Just as the traditional taxi systems revolted […]

“Ain’t it awful” is no way to formulate political strategy

“Ain’t it awful” is no way to formulate political strategy

. By Richard Eber, California Political News and Views   I remember this conversation game that my grandmothers used to play. These ladies, who grew up in the social morays of Victorian San Francisco at the start of the 20th century, would gossip about people they knew had fallen into hard times.  After telling these […]

Income Tax: No Honor Among Thieves

Income Tax: No Honor Among Thieves

. By Thomas L. Knapp Former US congressman (and presidential candidate) Ron Paul kept a placard on his desk reading “don’t steal — the government hates competition.” Unfortunately for taxpayers, that competition is getting more frequent and more bold. According to US News and World Report, nearly a quarter of a million taxpayers filed affidavits […]
