The Debt & Defense

If we were serious about the debt, we’d stop fighting dumb wars we don’t even try to win. One policy re-adoption could save a majority proportion of half-a-trillion dollars annually ($585B in FY2016), thousands of lives of our soldiers, tens of thousands of lives of our opponents, and make the entire world a safer place.

Shouldn’t that be the goal of our defense policy?

We don’t need to continue to enrich Lockheed  and others building toys we won’t use to win combat in which we shouldn’t be involved. And if we won’t use them to win, what […]

How to Destroy a State


CA Dem pols have just passed a $15/Hr minimum wage. Sheer idiocy.

First rung in job ladder for kids? Gone. First rung for low skill immigrants? Gone. First rung for the blue collar workers Dems fantasize they care about? Gone.

No families = no kids = no schools (check how few kids & schools in SF) = no future employees = no future jobs. Then no one will remain to pay these […]

Cruz is calling out the liars in his own party. McCain is berating GOP senators supporting the Constitution. McConnell is lying to his team in order to pass anti-limited government legislation.

Rand is saying – ya know what? The 10th Amendment really does exist, and, no, we don’t need to police the world.

Bernie is cleaning Hillary’s clock with her own base.

The GOP base can’t stand Jeb Bush.

Walker is […]

The American Middle Class Needs to Suck It Up

I’ve often held that Vietnam is THE defining moment in our post-war history.

I bring it up here only to make a point. I know people are bored with it, and that’s unfortunate, for its lessons still need to be learned.

The most important of these is this: Had 100,000 Middle Class American kids stood their ground, said – and believed, “Hell no, we won’t go,” and been willing to go to jail for their beliefs – rather than to Canada and Sweden – tens of thousands of American lives would have been saved – and arguably hundreds of […]
