    Hayek’s Spontaneous Ordering Forces

    Friedrich A. Hayek’s training and pursuits in economics led him to reach conclusions about society, government, and markets. Quoting from Friedrich A. Hayek’s lecture “The Pretense of Knowledge” upon accepting the Nobel Prize in economics, Dec. 11, 1974: To act on the belief that we possess the knowledge and the power which enable us to shape the processes of society entirely to our liking, knowledge | Read More »

    Leadership Through Disingenuity

    Mr. Obama and his administration are so smart, so clever, so incapable of being honest or sincere, and only pretending to be. The evidence of this is in their semantics. Their use of words to persuade is replete with inaccuracies, untruths, incompleteness, and guile. A few examples: The most famous is “If you like your plan you can keep your plan, period” repeated at least | Read More »

    Who Will Buy A Pig-in-a-Poke and Does It Matter?

    Obamacare’s choices: You are 25 years old, healthy, single, self employed, and have annual income of $35,000. Consider this 2014 choice. You can buy Obamacare health insurance for 2014 for $2,545 that has an annual out of pocket maximum of $6,350. So, if you have need for serious medical care you will have maximum costs of $8,895.

    Today is the Inflection Point

    Two months ago Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz were called crazy and were repudiated by leaders of their own political party for their “semi-filibuster/government shutdown” efforts in pursuit of compromise with Democratic Senate leaders and Mr. Obama on Obamacare, who notably refused to budge. Many Americans wake up today after literally years of yelling at the top of our lungs that Obamacare would not | Read More »

    You must use healthcare.gov if you are a legal US resident who qualifies for a subsidy and who wishes to buy a health policy rather than pay a tax. The subsidy is realized only as a tax credit and is available only by buying insurance via a government-run marketplace. For those not qualifying for a subsidy Healthcare.gov serves only as a data collector and a | Read More »

    “Misspeaking” Together – The New York Times and Mr. Obama

    The New York Times has a wonderfully political opinion piece titled: “Insurance Policies Not Worth Keeping,” mouthing the Obama administration’s spin defending the lies they perpetrated to get the votes to pass Obamacare in 2009. The piece states,“By law, insurers cannot continue to sell policies that don’t provide the minimum benefits and consumer protections…” thereby confirming Mr. Obama lied to us. (NYT say’s Mr. Obama | Read More »

    The “Transformation” – 2014

    Our Demonizer and Chief has the megalomaniacal gall to pronounce that the American people are fed up with Washington. Well, yes and that includes him. Not only does Mr. Obama presume himself above the responsibilities of leadership, not only does he insist that the government knows what is best for us, he also presumes to tell us what we think. The media’s love for this | Read More »

    Reflecting on Freedom

    Now as throughout history the world is full of those motivated to kill people who are not killing, to control people who are not controlling, and to impose values and behavior on people who are not imposing. The people who are not killing, not controlling, and not imposing are those who yearn to be free, to live private lives as individuals free from the oppression | Read More »
