The bill would permit an audit of the Fed's actions in the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) and similar high profile bailouts, but would not allow Congress to review the Fed's inflation of the money supply or the its agreements with foreign cen
This ain't the 'Broken Window' theory championed by Rudy, Billy and Howie in NYC in the early 90's. No, this is the 'Broken Window fallacy' of French economist Frederic Bastiast of the 50's (the 1850's, that is), and NYC mayor Mike Bloomberg is all o
They have become the new scolds. They have ushered in an “Age of Unreason” where you have to do what they say or else. They tell us what we can eat, what we can say, what kind of car to drive, what kind of light bulbs to use, on and on. They lecture
Professor Peter Klein, University of Michigan, talks about the return of an ugly monster that refuses to die.
“The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. ...The real enemy then is humanity itsel
The greatest risk of these policies is that the quantitative easing will persist until the value of the currency equals the actual cost of printing the currency (which is just slightly above zero).
The brilliant mind of Ayn Rand at work explaining the necessity of capitalism to a truly free society.
Nobel Laureate Economist Milton Friedman explores the unsettling dynamics set into motion when government imposes itself into the health care system. (1978
The Difference Between a Thief and a Congressman - Walter E Williams
Judge Andrew Napolitano and Bob Higgs discuss ominous historical parallels, and the ways Hoover expanded government to worsen the Great Depression.
There's no substitute for practice. Pulling the trigger will put bullets down range. To do it accurately and repeatedly will take time. Make the best use of your time by getting instruction, advise, and pertinent feedback.
Google the phrase, with quotes, "Going Galt" and you'll get "about 215,000" results or so. Are libertarians witnessing the mainstreaming of John Galt? This article touches on one of the reasons why the idea of Going Galt is becoming so popular. But it needs to begin with this caveat: NOTE: This article is not for the Pollyanna "good citizenship" drones who can't tell the difference between government tax-muggers and the productive people they terrorize. Banker Bradley Birkenfeld of the Swiss bank UBS assisted US citizens who had committed the unforgivable crime of being successful. In an effort to help them keep their own money, he set up secret bank accounts as a firewall against the ravages of the voracious American IRS. (The fact that the I in IRS stands for Internal, not International, seems to be irrelevant to the criminal class that runs the American Empire.) But Birkenfeld turned snitch. His bank, succumbing to the intimidations appl
Recently, in Key Biscayne, Florida, a three year-old girl got her arm stuck in a pool drain. This horrible incident luckily ended on a happy note, with the girl in stable condition. Everything seemed to turn out alright.
A you-nique approach to dis-engage from the "System Kaos" to cleanse the soul. Ageless is timeless, it's only aquired thru time. It takes time to become timeless"....these are the words that I channeled thru an interview with Lilly "G"
“Are we at last brought to such humiliating
and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?" “Fear is the passion of slaves.” “For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am
willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it.” “Give me liberty or give me death.” “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but
downright force. Whenever you give up
that force, you are inevitably ruined.” “I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is
the lamp of experience.” “I have now disposed of all my property to my family. There is one thing more I wish
I could give them, and that is the Christian religion.” “I know no way of judging the future but by the past.”
No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and
This is the question you need to ask yourself and then to question what you see, hear and read; "What does it mean to be an American?" First there is no nationality before you say American. I will accept the idea of differencesRead Letter
Most lowercase “l” and “r” libertarians and republicans I’ve met adhere to principle to a much greater extent than many of their uppercase counterparts, and I have often sadly seen it’s the same with “Christians” and “christians.”
"I enjoyed this lady's new blog, especially her piece encouraging support for The Enumerated Powers Act, and look forward to reading future pieces on her blog". - a recommendation from Christine Smith.
The economy is quite the complex area of study. Most people find it too boring and tedious to ever fully delve into it’s science. Those that have only a moderate understanding of how economics work, usually only for personal use in business and private finances, still do not find the topic of the economy attractive or exciting in any way.
Can it be non-violent?
To listen to this number of scholars on the topic of the event, “Economic Crisis, War, and the Rise of the State,” was an intellectual treat. But even beyond the lectures, learning continued as attendees visited amongst ourselves.
The State. Mankind’s greatest sin. The organization under which all of civilization rests. The bedrock of the establishment, the vehicle of the plutocrats, and the lawgiver to all society. Within it lies all the visions, dreams, plans, motivations, and the will of the Nation.
As if by popular declaration the world is crashing down around you, but a simple question comes to mind. Does everything have to be an emergency?
"As Martin Luther King said, 'let freedom ring.' Let it ring in the schools, the job markets, and the neighborhoods across the land. And then, we can all be free. Free at last."
The market anarchist, it seems, is the moderate in the mix. We
who aim for the stateless society recognize that “economic growth”
comes in two varieties — natural and artificial — and that the variety
Now, do them.
To expose any government encroachment of our liberty - our rights - and reject such usurpation is American...morality, religion, character, and one’s political philosophy...are determined by a pattern of behavior.
A great interview! (16-minutes in length) Now is the time for all who love liberty to challenge government infringements on our freedom. Here's how to commemorate The Declaration of Independence and celebrate July 4th's real meaning.
