Apologies to all of you folks who turned out at noon yesterday to be heard.  While the video that I shot, including your interviews, does play on my camera and computers, neither MS Movie Maker nor Real Player Trimmer is allowing me to edit the footage.  On two different Toshiba computers. As soon as I […]

What Is Wrong With Leveling The Inheritance Tax?

I’ve noticed something odd coming up in conversations ever since I wrote a piece for The Foundation for Economic Freedom’s Arena: Marriage: A Right Not A License (they titled it Gay Marriage Does Not Expand Liberty).  The issue of passing things on to spouses keeps getting tossed around. It comes from some odd quarters too.  The […]

My Appearance in The Arena at FEE.Org

In The Arena at FEE.Org, I argued that marriage is a right that should not be licensed. Marriage has every trapping of a right, and rights should not be subject to licensing. This basic position seems to evaporate into emotion when the topic turns to marriage. But whether it’s styling hair, making coffins or calling your […]

Why the Hate for the Articles of Confederation?

I, like many, used to buy the propaganda about the Articles of Confederation.  Perhaps there is a good argument out there for the abolishment of the AoC, but I haven’t heard it yet.  I don’t mean by “good” one that just sounds good, I lower the bar to mean one that contains any actual facts. […]

Calm Down People, Just Chill

This Benghazi thing? It is not much more than “Fast and Furious II, Electric Boogaloo.” Before you start assembling my pyre, I don’t think it should be that way at all. Heads should be rolling in ever direction over both items.  However, if any heads roll they will not be the heads of those at […]

If my investigative journey deep into Sevier County, Tennessee is any indication, the end is near indeed. I almost bit.  The wife and I were visiting some of my relatives in Gatlinberg yesterday and on the way back to are secret subterranean lair, we made a stop at Krystal’s.  (In the interest of the nice, courteous […]

That’s What You Get For Having An FDA

Ronald Bailey at Reason.Com brings this news from the Obama administration: Obama Administration Plan B Emergency Contraception Shenanigans Update The Reason editor has an interesting complaint: Ah, remember the heady days at the beginning of the New Camelot, when a young charismatic President Barack Obama, avatar representative of the “reality-based community,” promised, “We will restore […]

Hero of the Left: Hugo Black

Hugo Black did not join the Ku Klux Klan because he hated Oprah’s grandparents, he joined because he hated my grandparents. He was named to the Supreme Court by Franklin Roosevelt. He didn’t even hate my grandparents because of the long vowel at the end of our family name, or because they were from Italy, […]

Fedmath: Of Government Numbers and Such

Back in the old days, I used to use the term “fedmath” when speaking about any odd statistic coming from a government organization. Pretty sure i did not invent it, I think I saw it on Slashdot.Org, or one of the other sites I used to frequent in the 1990s. “Fedmath” was the first word […]

Licensing is Anti-Liberty

If you thought licensing had something to do with your safety, you have been deceived.  From the nail technician license, to the law license, and all of the rest, the effect is government control of a market or government control of you. The classic example is the driver’s license.  That license has not one whit […]
