The FDA Is Cancer

The gay lobby was able to overcome the Food and Drug Administration on anti-AIDS “cocktails.” This was one of the few major triumphs of politics over bureaucracy in my lifetime. Consider this report. Hasini Jayatilaka was a sophomore at the Johns Hopkins University working in a lab studying cancer cells when she noticed that when […]

The Bureaucrats Will Scuttle Trump

Pres. Trump has proposed a $1 trillion boondoggle. He wants to spend this money on infrastructure. This is going to put Obama’s shovel-ready, anti-recession boondoggle to shame. Only it isn’t going to happen. It didn’t happen for Obama, either. Here is what happened — or didn’t happen. Back in 2009, former President Barack Obama made […]

Pulling the Plug

There is a famous phrase in American politics: “the consent of the governed.” It is an important phrase. It is the essence of political legitimacy. Throughout most of history, the consent of the governed has been grudging. People put up with the political system they live in. They think it is not worth their time […]

Alex Jones Blindsided Megyn Kelly

Megan Kelly got a promotion from Fox News to NBC because Donald Trump insulted her during an early Republican presidential debate. This promotion did not include an increase in wisdom. It merely gave her a larger audience for her to reveal her limitations. Her limitations are considerable. Her latest bonehead move was to interview Alex […]

Books on Austrian Economics

This was posted yesterday on a forum. It begins with one of my observations on what I must re-read before I finish writing the manuscript of my projected magnum opus, Christian Economics: Scholar’s Edition. “Then I will have to re-read the basics of Austrian economics. There are at least a dozen major books.” Predictable question! […]

Old Cars, Old Oil

Eric Peters is the resident car expert on LewRockwell.com. Recently, he wrote an article on maintaining old cars. He spoke of his 1976 TransAm. I still have all the original paperwork, including the service schedule. It tells me to change the oil once every 7,500 miles or six months — whichever comes first. Well, it’ll […]

Give It Your Best Shot

Americans know this phrase: “Give it your best shot!” Have you ever given anything your best shot? Coaches use this phrase: “He gave 110%.” When was the last time you gave 110%? Never forget the Pareto 20/80 distribution. About 20% of your efforts produce 80% of the value of your output. So, give almost nothing […]

War or Granny

Remnant Review I begin with a familiar pie chart. It is well named. It is a chart of the political pie. This chart is from 2015. The right side of this chart is going to expand relentlessly from now on. Every day, 10,000 people go on Medicare. Medicare costs the government over $1,000 a month […]

Mastery in Your Field

Mastery is not taught in classrooms, where the training is for people in the middle of the bell curve. Mastery is self-taught. Prior to YouTube, we rarely saw examples of mastery. Now we can. First, archery. Current Prices on popular forms of Gold Bullion I recommend that everybody select a particular area of life in […]

Waffling Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter talks tough, but only in print. She refused to talk tough when it came time to talk. She was invited to Berkeley. She made a lot of noise about it. Then, when push threatened to come to shove, she wimped out. I am not impressed with the lady at all. I never have […]

My Father’s World and Mine

My father was born on April 22, 1917. He died at age 91. If we think of the really big inventions of the modern world, most of them were in widespread use at the time of his birth. Alternating current electricity was in most cities. The automobile, as represented by the Model T Ford, had […]

Two Stubborn Men

The public has heard of the Cuban missile crisis in October 1962. The USA and the USSR came close to nuclear war. Twenty-one years later it happened again. Twice. On September 1, 1983, Korean Airlines flight 007 disappeared over Soviet air space. The official report on both sides of the Iron Curtain was that a […]

The Population Implosion

This documentary was produced in 2007-8. The information that it presents is somewhat better known today, but not much. Its title: “Demographic Winter.” The humanist Left despises this documentary. Why? Because it lays a tombstone on Paul Ehrlich’s preposterous book, The Population Bomb (1968). Let us be reasonable about this. Population implosion is inevitable. Those […]

Has Trump Replaced John Kerry?

Trump’s voters are watching the Washington Establishment capture Donald Trump. His reversals are now heralded by the mainstream media. The Washington Post has continued to attack him 24×7, yet it admits he is taking centrist positions. The BBC has also noted it. He campaigned against ObamaCare. He failed to promote repeal. The accent was on […]

Airline De-Regulation

The American airline industry was de-regulated in 1978 under President Carter, not Reagan. This forced airlines to change. From this time on, they had to meet customer demand. They were no longer protected by federal law against low-cost fares. The corporate culture of the airlines could not adjust. There was an exception: Southwest Airlines. It […]

The War on Syria

Woodrow Wilson won the election of 1916 because he campaigned on a platform of peace. He had kept us out of war. On April 2, 1917, he asked Congress for a declaration of war against Germany. The Senate voted to go to war on April 4. It took until April 6 for the House of […]
