We are now China… or at least acting like it

January 6, 2021. The day the truth died. The United States government is holding almost 600 political prisoners. Since supporters of then-President Donald Trump swarmed the US Capitol on January 6 — forcing Congress to go into lockdown and damaging the halls of government — 590 people have been arrested and charged with...

June 19th or Juneteenth is the wrong day to celebrate the end of slavery in the United States

Why do we frequently come up with bullshit made-up holidays? Juneteenth is the wrong day for a holiday that marks the end of slavery in the United States. Here are four reasons why. It is an event local to Glaveston, Texas Kentucky & Delaware still legally held slaves after...

Who didn’t know COVID-19 was cover for a power grab?

Almost my entire family view me as a crackpot when I recite every liberty taken from the public due to “protecting others” from COVID-19. The United States and western democracies are not founded on the principles of collective good. They are founded on the principle of individual liberty and...

I posted the quote below on Facebook last night. I found it after the Internet seemed to explode over calls for President Trump to resign or be impeached and after he was banned from Twitter’s platform. Glenn Greenwald is referencing a case when white merchants filed suit against the...

Capitol protesters solidifies congress’ opposition to Trump

The massive protest at the U.S. capitol today wobbled the legs of the Senate and the House of Representatives. But instead of pushing them to addressing the grievances of half the country they instead will just rubber stamp the Electoral College tally and confirm the election of Joe Biden....

What happened to the ACLU?

This is the organization that used to stand up for due process and defend the rights of even the worst people. If you were looking for more evidence that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has been losing its principled approach to civil liberties, look no further: The group...

The relevance and prescience of “Free to Choose”

I just finished Milton Friedman’s book “Free to Choose”. This book was published back in 1979 when the country went through one of the worst recessions since the Great Depression (Seems to keep happening doesn’t it?). Comically Friedman had the opinion that socialism had been adequately relegated as a...
