The Real Targets of Class Warfare

January 31, 2014

There has been, as you’ve no doubt noticed, a persistent theme surging back and forth between the polar spectrums of political thought, regarding the question of ‘Class Warfare’.  It especially animates many media personalities on the Right, who decry any criticism of the unprecedented rise of the accumulation of wealth within a small statistical segment […]

Obamacare – Corporate Wealth Transfer or the ‘New Capitalism’?

January 17, 2014

9

For some time now I’ve been attempting to convey the reality that Corporate America, or otherwise casually referred to as ‘Big Business’, broadly speaking – is not practicing what many of us who consider ourselves conservatives would classify as legitimate capitalism.  Corporatism, Corporatocracy, Corruption, Rent Seeking?, yes.  Classic capitalism? – no.  The obstacle in exposing […]

The Thanksgiving Illusion

November 27, 2013

I realize that I’m going to establish for myself, a reputation as an iconoclast and a ‘Grinch that stole Thanksgiving’ – or at the very least the ‘Grinch that defended the theft of Thanksgiving’.  I would be happy to settle for non-conformist and independent thinker, but let the critics do their worst.  It has come to my […]

Shall I SuperSize Your NDAA Combo Meal?

November 19, 2013

2014’s iteration of the National Defense Authorization Act is approaching a vote in the Senate.  Typical of the process of crafting a bill that involves such an enormous segment of the nation’s budget, is the perennial attempt by interest groups to insert amendments that often have zero to do with the target of the appropriations […]

So Congress Made A Farm Bill

May 23, 2013

I actually was conflicted about what to name this post.  My decision narrowed down to ‘Green Acres – the Movie’ and the title you see.  Search Engine Optimization won out. What actually is the Farm Bill, what’s in it and why do we need it, do we still need it and is there room for […]

The Internet Sales Tax – More is Never Enough

May 22, 2013

The Internet Sales Tax.   Nothing illustrates the ravenous nature of BigGov and its insatiable desire to destroy even the smallest extant vestiges of Free Enterprise in America than the effort underway to pull millions of small businesses into their net of taxation.  While the support this legislation is getting on Capitol Hill from Democrats […]

Best Government Money Can Buy

February 10, 2013

One of my readers, whose curiosity was sparked by my recent post ‘Please Don’t Feed the Beast’, asked me if I knew where most of the business and organizational campaign money was coming from.  I did see some lists, but as it turns out, relatively speaking, many of the notable players in the 2012 cycle […]

Sacre Bleu!

December 30, 2012

The Euros are making fools of us. We’ve got a corrupt, cowardly Congress and a lying imposter masquerading as a President, that can’t abide by their oaths of office and hence, as I’ve described, calling it the ‘Chicken Game‘, are leading us into a deeper abyss of economic calamity. France has the same thing, except […]

Filleting Fast Food Fascism

August 1, 2012

We’ve talked about the Chick-Fil-A controversy that has erupted in Chicago in light of the social values and culture war perspective. The idea that a business owner cannot, according to Alderman Moreno and Rahm Emanuel, express a personal viewpoint about the homosexual agenda – Gay marriage in particular, has been discussed with great fervor. It […]

Aaron Sorkin, the ‘Crack’ TV Writer

July 24, 2012

A close friend (who shares my affinity for situational anonymity) sent me this video and his comments, along with a request for my take on the excerpt from the program ‘Newsroom’, which is up for Emmy nominations. I will pass along the advisory note that he issued, as to the modest profanity employed by the […]
