But two new stories, and a little known fact about the UK's NHS, reveal why socialized medicine isn't just dangerous - it inevitably leads to economic, medical, and…

Dinosaur collectivists in pop media seem averse to noting the stark realities of leftist economics. The current example is the basket case of Venezuela, which the editors of the Washington Post and a gaggle of Hollywood celebrities appear to be afraid of acknowledging. On May 4, the Post published an article that makes one suspect its editors might be stuck in 2000. Entitled “Venezuela Should…

    The bureaucrats in the Food and Drug Administration this month have revealed that they have a real problem with e-cigarettes – an antipathy so strong that if the makers of “vape” products and their customers don’t spend a lot of time and money bowing to the agency, the FDA will shut them down in 2018. Because, of course, consumers and sellers have to be “saved” from exercising their own…

On May 8, the ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft lost a vote in Austin, Texas, that would have allowed them to continue using their own vetting system to check the backgrounds of their employees. Instead, the companies will be forced to pay the city for background checks, while, in all likelihood, still spending money on their own security. As a result, Uber and Lyft are leaving Austin. In…

On May 5, 2016, a handful of news agencies and websites erroneously reported that the Social Security Administration (SSA) was preparing to report to the FBI the “mentally ill” recipients of any SSA program, so that the Bureau could block them from legally purchasing or owning firearms. Scandalous headlines told us “Social Security Moves to Block Mentally Ill from Purchasing Guns.” But, that’s…

Last Friday, President Obama signed the “Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin Act” into law, which orders the U.S. Treasury in 2017 to create up to 50,000 pink-gold $5 commemorative coins, 400,000 Silver Dollars and 750,000 silver Half-dollars to promote the “fight against breast cancer.” The coins will sell for the cost of the base metals (they won’t be 100 percent gold or silver), plus…

In a move that echoes the 2015 actions of the Texas government, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam on April 28 signed a resolution, passed unanimously by both houses of the Tennessee government, in favor of creating a state precious metal repository. While it is not a bill, its significance on cannot be overstated. First, it indicates that the U.S. Dollar is headed for trouble. Vast amounts of…

Utah: home of the Empire State Building, Disney World, Fenway Park, and the Great Wall. It’s the place Tolkien visited when creating his fantasy world of Middle Earth, and— Okay, totally wrong, and about as tied to reality as Major Tom to Ground Control by the end of Bowie’s “Space Oddity”. But perhaps that’s the way it should be, considering the state’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ…

Earth Day 2016 has come and gone with great fanfare and hordes of crony-fueled policy prescriptions from fascistic politicians around the world. But nowhere is the threat of environmental collectivism more pronounced than the state of Vermont. For Earth Day this year, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin patted himself on the back for having the courage to fly to Paris, France, where he attended the…
