The Fantasies of Government

I found this story amusing, but not for the reasons Vox intended. In 1939, Franklin Roosevelt moved Thanksgiving back a week in the calendar. Vox goes into the culture war that erupted but I was more interested in his motivation for doing so:

Since the late 19th century, Thanksgiving had traditionally been celebrated on the final Thursday in November. But in 1939, Roosevelt’s seventh year in office, that last Thursday fell on November 30. And

When even the science fs up your agenda…

I just recently had several discussions in the last week or so, with different people at different times, about energy and economic impacts of that energy’s availability and cost. I pointed out that people have spent the last 5 decades telling us we would be running out of fossil fuels in the next 3 or 4 decades, only to end up with scientific advances and human ingenuity raising the time we have at a curved … Read more

Adding up 2 and 2..

So Judicial Watch has finally managed to fight through the bureaucratic nonsense and the illegal maneuvering and lies from the age of Obama DOJ to obtain documents related to the Fast & Furious scandal using FOIA requests, and have posted what they have received on their site. Something already found since these documents were turned over on November 18th, lends credence to the belief so many of us have that the WH and the … Read more

Of course they are his allies on this!

For now, that is. Yeah, health insurers are stepping up to help Obama defend the despicable Obamacare law, and that should surprise no one. The law is terrible for consumers, but great for both government that wants to get its mitts into the health insurance decision making process and money, as well as a financial boon – at least in the short term – to the evil insurance companies that the left created this … Read more

Slackers on the rise

Frankly I am surprised that as many as 40% women, 28% men, 39% youth have admitted that they don’t want a job, in a system that’s clearly bloated and inefficient, robbing the productive to buy votes, and that tragically favors receiving assistance over working.

You eventually will run out of productive people willing to be fleeced, as the recent election results here in the US show. Those altruistic do-gooders the left counts … Read more

Virus makes people more stupid?

A new study claims scientists have discovered a virus that makes humans more stupid. I think the study should have looked at liberals and tried to figure out how many of them were infected by this virus and others like it. That would have been important information to learn.… Read more

Forced charity is still bullshit

The new pope is making the case that caring for the poor doesn’t make you a communist, and he is right. What can be argued makes you a communist, or if you want to be pedantic and stick to the definition that communism means the state owns everything, what it makes you is a collectivist douchebag, is when you expect government to do it after it uses force to confiscate the earnings of others, … Read more

It sucks to have a shitty religion

Just yesterday, because my company announced changes to our benefit enrollment plans and opened up enrollment this week, I was having a discussion with a hard core lefty and Obama supporter about the fact that the costs have yet again gone up, the plan offerings have gone down, and providers have yet again been restricted. In addition to now making every employee with healthcare that has a spouse with access to her own plan (from … Read more

Those that experience true Progressive paradise on earth

Sooner than later, if given the opportunity, will gravitate back towards capitalism, and that’s despite the inequality and unfairness, as this survey of support for a free market, especially amongst those that have firsthand experience with collectivism points out.

Despite the fact that most people are very concerned about the gap between the rich and the poor in their country, majorities across the globe are willing to accept some inequality to have a free market

The Definition of Insanity

Is government housing policy:

Recent steps by federal regulators make it clear: low down-payment loans, a feature of the housing market’s boom, are coming back.

On Monday, Federal Housing Finance Agency Director Mel Watt announced that mortgage-finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would start backing loans with down payments as low as 3%.

And on Tuesday, three federal agencies approved a loosened set of mortgage-lending rules, removing a requirement for a 20% down
