There’s a saying in economics: when there is a demand, the market will find a way to fill it. Hence, black markets arise for all kinds of things that politicians try to “ban” by statute. Recently, we reported about authorities in Denver, Colorado, shutting down a kids’ lemonade stand – one of many such instances where the Burgher Meisters didn’t approve of what the children were doing. So…

From the byzantine alcoves of Chinatown to the crest of Mission Street, where vagrancy is as prevalent as the cloying stench of human waste, San Francisco has a tremendous housing problem. Rents are high, entry-level jobs are disappearing thanks to the city imposing its counterproductive minimum wage mandates, the city recently slapped a “real estate transfer tax” onto big properties to…

It’s clear that history is not taught well in government-run schools, so perhaps it should come as no surprise that a politician who attended public indoctrination camps would overlook a jagged mountain range of ironically important points when introducing a bill to smother the right to keep and bear arms. Indeed, it isn’t surprising, but, perhaps of the locale, this one is even more…

Folks in Boston and Philadelphia contest which locale can lay claim to the title, “The Cradle of Liberty”, and, despite the fact that neither are living up to their reputations, bureaucrats in one Boston suburb seem intent on giving Philly the edge. As WBZ 4’s Liam Martin reports, the town of Chelmsford, MA, recently notified local businessman Jon Crandall that his patriotic display of 200 small…

In 2014, Colorado was the first U.S. state to decriminalize marijuana for more than medical use, so one might think that folks in its capital city of Denver would be inclined to be “hands off” when it comes to even less controversial chemicals that people might voluntarily buy, sell, or ingest. Nope. Denver police recently swarmed upon the Knowles brothers to stop a dangerous, aggressive act.…

Back in the distant, misty days of ancient 1990s America, when Jerry Seinfeld’s comedy series was at the height of popularity, folks seemed to catch a strange affliction, sometimes called by medical experts, “Seinfeld Syndrome,” wherein they would suddenly break out in his tone of voice, and imitate his most famous line, “What’s the deal?” That phrase is coming back. Applied by folks who are…

Poor Bill Nye. If only bow ties made one adept at science… And economics… And linguistics. If Bill Nye’s flatulent first season Netflix dance routine featuring Rachel Bloom and her termagant “sex junk” didn’t sufficiently call into question his reliability and wisdom as a purveyor of science and empiricism, his new interview with The Daily Beast certainly does. In it, Nye, a vegan and hand…

Postmodernism exposed its hypocritical, Marxist heart in Canada on May 18, during a Munk Debate about “Political Correctness” (PC) between a team in favor of PC behavior and policy, and a team against it. The team in favor was composed of journalist Michelle Goldberg and Georgetown University sociology professor (and minister) Michael Eric Dyson (PhD), while the team opposed featured British…

On May 17, 29 Republican Senators joined their Democrat “colleagues” to block Ran Paul’s (R-Ky) proposal to balance the federal budget in five years, reinforcing what we have known for a long time: The bulk of lawmakers in DC's country club infrastructure have been selling snake oil each time they claimed they were for “smaller government”. As Warren Mass reports for The New American: Paul’s…

Sometimes, liberty-minded individuals raise their hands in consternation and proclaim, “I’ve had enough”. The assaults to freedom, and the twisted, belly-crawling, shameless excuses politicians inflict on us are just too frequent, the insults infinitely debased and insulting. Our self-serving pal, Chris Murphy, a Democrat Senator from Connecticut, has provided us with yet another of those “…
