  • Woman Singled out by the TSA, Cuffed to a Chair, Her Ticket Ripped up

    The TSA chose Meg McLain for special screening. They wanted her to go through the new porno-scanners. When she opted out, TSA agents raised an enormous ruckus. When she asked some question about what they planned to do to her, they flipped out. TSA agents yelled at her, handcuffed her to a chair, ripped up her ticket, called in 12 local Miami cops and finally escorted her out of the airport. Listen to her story as she told it on radio show Free Talk Live last night. Things are truly getting scary.

    It’s a very subtle ploy, that statement, ”already making more money than most will earn in a lifetime.” Does it make you feel good? Glad for those billionaires, and proud of their enterprenurial spirit? Or does it make you feel slightly envious that these young kids will make more than you’ll ever see in your life? Yeah, me too. The ongoing repetition (only slightly unpalatable in single instances) permeates society these days. It’s in the press, on television, online… all the time. Captialism is evil; tax the rich; make the rich pay their fair share; they’ll make more than you’ll...

    Quotes from On ‘Demand Side’ Economics The average person works and accumulates savings over 40 years in order to retire. From the time they start to the time they finish, assuming only 2% inflation per year, prices will have risen by 221%. Keynes gets the problem of economics completely backwards. The problem of economics is unlimited demand with limited supply. The implicit argument of Keynes is that the problem of economics is limited demand with unlimited supply. Politicians want to have their money and spend it too. Of course, it makes sense for the Federal Reserve to define their purpose...

    It's a question I'm frequently asked these days. I'm far from an expert on the Tea Party. Accordingly, my answer is limited to stating that there is a division among Tea Party members, with some tending towards an interventionist position and others tending towards isolationism. I avoid opining on what the breakdown is. One way to get at the question is to look at the positions taken by prominent Tea Party candidates in this year's election. Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics has undertaken that analysis. He finds the same division that I posited exists within the rank-and-file. Marco Rubio's...

And he then bought weapons from our military-industrial complex. And also that is when he invested in a nuclear reactor.... "Also there's been...
  • What Would Milton Friedman Say About Fed Policy Under Bernanke?

    IBD Editorials ^ | October 20, 2010 | DAVID BECKWORTH AND WILLIAM RUGER
    Four years after his death, Milton Friedman's thoughts on monetary policy remain as relevant today as they were 30 years ago. Even Fed Chairman "Helicopter Ben" Bernanke (whose nickname comes from Friedman's famous "helicopter drop" idea for overcoming deflation) has referenced the Chicago don as an inspiration for his actions. However, Friedman's views may not be well understood even by those who would claim him as their intellectual fountainhead — which could be problematic for policy-making. So what would Milton Friedman say about our current monetary policy? First, low interest rates do not necessarily mean monetary policy is loose. Friedman...

Inflation is almost as ancient as money is, and money is almost as ancient as man himself. It was probably not long after the earliest cave man of the Stone Age fashioned his first stone spearhead to kill boars with, perhaps thirty or forty thousand years ago, that he began to use boar’s teeth or something of the sort as counters for trading spearheads and caves with...

She continues to draw huge crowds wherever she appears and many, but not all, of her endorsements have paid off the candidates in the primary season. Some say she has no chance, she's too divisive, they won't support her. What do you say? Please leave a comment to explain your reasons for your answer.

Addressing a veterans rally for a Republican Senate candidate in Nashua on Saturday, the Arizona senator was reminiscing about his presidential campaigns in New Hampshire, where he won the Republican primaries in 2000 and 2008. He told the audience of 200 that "this may surprise you, but I will not be running for president again."

    French economist Jacques Rueff once said "Tomorrow, to save man, we will give him a real currency." For a world that has suffered nearly 40 years of economy-retarding currency instability, that tomorrow is very near. If history is any kind of indicator, by 2013 we'll return to money defined in terms of something real. No currency in history has lasted longer than 42 years after its intrinsic backing has been abandoned, and it was 39 years ago that President Nixon severed the dollar's link to gold. Over the ensuing decades the U.S. economy alone has suffered three dollar-driven oil "shocks,"...

    Americans may be extremely upset about Wall Street bailouts, but President Obama isn't listening. Come September 7, President Obama will have Wall Street investment banks lining up for another huge bailout. But such a bailout will do little to stimulate the housing market and offset the latest 27.2 percent plunge in existing home sales. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) will offer financial institutions holding mortgages worth more than the value of the houses, so-called "underwater" mortgages, a guarantee on 90 percent of the mortgage value if the institution will write-off 10 percent of the mortgage. These risky mortgages have been...

    In Ohio on Wednesday President Obama announced that Social Security "is not in crisis" and that only "modest adjustments" are required. He has long promised that his health care plan will not add "one dime" to the deficit. Yet, a new report from the International Monetary Fund concludes that, long-term, our government is in worse financial shape than Greece, and that this problem is driven in large part by both programs, particularly the new health care plan. Greece has built up so much debt and so many financial obligations that the difference between all future expenditures and revenues, the so-called...

    Marxian socialists and anarcho-communists, and the like, want to collectivize the means of production, meaning that they are owned in common by everyone in society, such that the individual has no opportunity to own his own means of production and operate his own enterprise as he alone sees fit. This puts him in the position of having to work for the collective or starve. I can't fathom how anyone who desire individual freedom, autonomy, and self actualization would find being in the position of subservience to a tyranny of the collective appealing. To the contrary, it sounds suffocating.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The $700 billion U.S. bailout program launched in response to the global economic meltdown had a far greater impact overseas than other countries' financial rescue plans did on the U.S., according to a new report from a congressional watchdog. Billions of dollars in U.S. rescue funds wound up in big banks in France, Germany and other nations. That was probably inevitable because of the structure of the Treasury Department's program, the Congressional Oversight Panel says in a new report issued Thursday. The U.S. program aimed to stabilize the financial system by injecting money into as many banks...

The libertarian-minded Republican ultimately graded the president at a just-passing “D” when asked to rate Obama’s performance during an interview on CNN’s “American Morning,” though only because he decided to factor in extenuating circumstances. “I’d probably give them a D. He deserves an F, but I give him a D to make one point is that he's not responsible for this mess,” Paul said. “The last administration has a lot to do with this. The Congress has a lot...

Rand Paul cares about the national debt. It’s his No. 1 issue. It’s also his No. 2 issue and his No. 3 issue. 2. Rand Paul is willing to go after his fellow Republicans on spending: “They didn’t balance the budget...

USCIS, a part of the Obama administration, outlines the ideas in a draft memo that includes the possibility of issuing green cards to tens of thousands who entered the country illegally. "In the absence of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, CIS can extend benefits and/or protections to many individuals and groups by issuing new guidance and regulations," the memo advises.

    Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) spent more than $10M on his primary battle against ex-Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R), according to his 2ndQ campaign finance report, leaving him with a much narrower financial advantage in the GOP primary than he once enjoyed. McCain has spent a total of $15.7M this cycle, according to FEC reports, and he has just $1.78M left to spend before the Aug. 24 GOP primary. Hayworth had $922K in the bank, his reports showed.

    Voters support the idea of "free enterprise" significantly more than they do the concept of "capitalism," according to a poll released Tuesday. The survey, conducted by Republican pollster Steve Lombardo’s consulting group, showed that 78 percent of voters have a very positive or somewhat positive view of “free enterprise” but that only 57 percent have the same thoughts about “capitalism.” Nineteen percent of respondents viewed “capitalism” very negatively or somewhat negatively while only four percent had the same views of “free enterprise.” The poll was commissioned by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, one of the nation’s most influential business groups....

    For years, whispers of the secretive organization of world leaders known as the Bilderberg Group were considered fodder for conspiracy theories, but in the wake of massive economic upheaval, Europe's mainstream has joined the clamoring to find out what kind of financial wizardry has been going on behind the Bilderberg curtain. Daniel Estulin, author of the hot-selling book, "The True Story of the Bilderberg Group," has even been invited to present an unprecedented speech before the European Parliament in Brussels June 1 on the subject of the secretive cabal. "In Spain, Bilderberg is the 'it' topic," Estulin told WND. "The...

    Friday July 9, 2010 Federal Bill Puts Crisis Pregnancy Centers in the Crosshairs WASHINGTON, D.C., July 9, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Pro-life pregnancy centers, which focus on providing free resources and information to women in crisis pregnancies to allow them to keep their babies, are facing a new attack from pro-abortion groups, and this time through Congress. U.S. Rep. Maloney (D-NY) and Sen. Menendez (D-NJ) are sponsoring a bill that would demand the Federal Trade Commission develop advertising rules that would restrict the ability of pro-life pregnancy centers to reach out to women with crisis pregnancies.   Maloney’s "Stop Deceptive...

    ...The Democrats have lost millions of votes since Obama was immaculated. They want to try to get some of those votes back with amnesty, one way or the other... Look, I don't like saying this stuff. There's an ongoing effort to define the entire issue. We're gonna become the lowest-common-denominator country. The lowest-common-denominator country is equal to Democrats in power in perpetuity, and that's what this is.

    CATO @ Liberty ^ | 2010-04-12 | Daniel J. Mitchell
    A former White House speechwriter, Mark Thiessen, has jumped to the defense of his former boss, writing for the Washington Post that George W. Bush “established a conservative record without parallel.” Even by the loose standards of Washington, that is a jaw-dropping assertion. I’ve been explaining for years that Bush was a big-government advocate, even writing a column back in 2007 for the Washington Examiner pointing out that Clinton had a much better economic record from a free-market perspective. I also groused to the Wall Street Journal the following year about Bush’s dismal performance. “Bush doesn’t have a conservative legacy”...

Republicans in Congress were blamed by 9 percent of respondents, and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke was blamed by 4 percent. A majority of Democrats...
