Why Should Someone Die Waiting for a Kidney?

The war on drugs is insidious. A kidney patient in Maine has been taken off a transplant wait list for using medical marijuana, even though both the medical and recreational use of marijuana is legal in Maine. Garry Godfrey has Alport Syndrome, a hereditary disease which causes renal failure at a young age. He suffers from debilitating pain, nausea, and anxiety, which he treats with medical marijuana. “I’ve tried so many pharmaceuticals and none of them worked, but the medical cannabis does,” he said. “It helps me function. It helps me take care of my kids.” “You should not be … Continue reading

666

Revelation 13 1 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world. 11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast Current Prices on popular forms of Silver Bullion ———————————————- … Continue reading

US Out of Korea

My biggest concern is not the embarrassment of a U.S. public afraid of the tiny impoverished nation of North Korea. If that embarrassed me, how would I survive what U.S. culture makes of ISIS, or — for that matter — the election of Donald Trump? My biggest concern is that U.S. war profiteers may end up using Korea to get us all killed. The United States bombed the living hell out of North Korea, and — in hopes that nothing would survive — dropped diseased insects on the place, hoping to start plagues. One bit of later collateral damage was … Continue reading

Another Algore Fraud

I am not sure why, but I have had a lot of people ask me recently about flex fuel vehicles, what they are, and if they should use E85, since it is cheaper than gasoline. Flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs) are designed to run on gasoline or gasoline-ethanol blends of up to 85% ethanol (E85). Except for a few engine and fuel system modifications, they are identical to gasoline-only models. FFVs experience no loss in performance when operating on E85, and some generate more torque and horsepower than when operating on gasoline. However, since ethanol contains less energy per volume than … Continue reading

Nikola Tesla: the Genius of Modern Electricity

Can you imagine if we were still walking around at night using candles to light our way, or heating our homes only by fire? Sure, it’s romantic and nostalgic to do that once in a while, but at the end of the day, society would look extremely different without the use of electricity. Nikola Tesla was one of the geniuses who played an integral role in creating modern electricity, so you have him along with many other scientists to thank! Tesla worked with Edison on electromagnetism, played a hand in inventing the radio, and is well-known for his work with alternating … Continue reading

Gov’t Puts Cyanide Sprayers in Rural Areas

Every reasonable person is cautious when they go out for a hike. They keep their eyes and ears peeled for any potential predators, and they make sure to watch their step. Unfortunately, being cautious isn’t so helpful when you’re dealing with the unexpected. It doesn’t help you when you don’t know what to look for. That’s why so many people were shocked and horrified to hear about a recent incident involving a teenage boy and his dog in Idaho. Most people are completely unaware of the device that killed his dog. 14-year-old Canyon Mansfield was out playing with his dog … Continue reading

Did the Middlebury Riot Betray an Excess of Virtue?

A commentary posted on The American Interest website (March 29, 2017) about the “protest and subsequent riot” at Middlebury College occasioned by the appearance of Charles Murray, the respected critic of liberal racial and welfare state policies, as a speaker provoked my interest in an unintended way. The author of this piece, Flagg Taylor, obviously wanted us to root for the educational psychologist Jonathan Haidt, who founded the Heterodox Academy website and organization. This NYU faculty member is supposed to be the good guy, as opposed to his co-discussant on “Charlie Rose” Frank Bruni, who works at the New York Times. Taylor … Continue reading

The 2016 Election Was Undemocratic

In their attempt to remove Trump from office, his critics charge that the 2016 election process was undemocratic, the implication being that Trump is holding office illegitimately and should resign or be removed. Is this charge true or false? The question to be raised and examined here is this: Was this election any different from any other election of an American president? Was it any more or less of a democratic process than any other such election? Is this election so tainted by undemocratic offenses that it should be ruled out of order? Or does this election share with its … Continue reading

College Is a Waste of Money

Justin’s note: Today, instead of our usual market commentary, we’re doing something special. I recently sat down again with Casey Research founder Doug Casey to discuss a troubling trend: the fast-rising cost of a college education. Read our conversation below to see why Doug says relying on—and paying for—today’s educational paradigm “makes as much sense as entering a Model T Ford in the 24 Hours of Le Mans”… Justin: Doug, I recently had an interesting conversation with my sister. Physical Gold & Silver in your IRA. Get the Facts. She told me that her financial advisor suggested she start setting aside $500 to … Continue reading

Destroy Daesh?

While Washington multiplies the signals confirming its intention to destroy Daesh, the British and the French, followed by the rest of the Europeans, are contemplating going their own way. London and Paris may have coordinated the attacks on Damascus and Hama in order to force the Syrian Arab Army to move out to defend them, and consequently, to weaken their presence around Rakka. The Europeans are hoping to organize the flight of the jihadists towards the Turkish frontier. The meeting of the anti-Daesh Coalition in Washington, on 22-23 March, went very badly. Although in appearance, the 68 members reasserted their … Continue reading

Are the Russians Insouciant?

On March 1 the US National Reconnaissance Office launched a spy satellite carried by an Atlas V rocket that was powered by a Russian RD-180 engine. The Unites States, an alleged “superpower,” is not capable of putting its own spy satellites into space. The “superpower” is dependent on Russia, which provides the “superpower” with the rocket engines to put up spy satellites to spy on Russia!!! Here we have in Lenin’s words, the Russians selling Washington the rope with which to hang Russia!

College Students Penalized for Offensive Words

Essays will be marked down unless they use ‘gender-sensitive language’, students at a British university have been told. Many universities are already advising students and staff not to use ‘gender-offensive’ terms such as ‘he’ or ‘she’ to describe people that could be either male or female. And terms such as ‘mankind’, ‘manpower’ and ‘man-made’ are frowned upon by academics if used in essays. But now the school of social science at the University of Hull has gone one step further by threatening to deduct marks from students for using such phrases. A document sent to students reads: ‘Language is important and … Continue reading

Mob Rule

My local dive, Friendly Lounge, was mentioned in I Heard You Paint Houses, a book soon to be turned into a movie by Martin Scorcese. Now Friendly’s featured quite prominently in The Last Don Standing, an account of the Philly mob by Ralph Natale. An infamous snitch, Natale still spent 27 years inside. As I type this at Friendly, guitarist Jimmy Bruno and organist Joey DeFrancesco, both Philly guys, are killing it in the background. Anyway, this new book dubs this bar a training ground for the Mafia: Hard case DiTullio developed an instant soft spot for the young Natale, … Continue reading
