    Obama’s Objective: Nationalize California’s Government-Made Water Disaster

    California – the Golden State that hasn’t been golden in decades. And has for decades been under the near total control of the Democrat Party. These two things are not unrelated. California has for the Reality-based community long been a perfect reverse barometer. Anything the state does – do the opposite, and success and prosperity will surely ensue. We like to juxtapose California and Texas. | Read More »

    Aren’t We All Looking Forward to ‘Internet at the Speed of Government?’

    We were on February 26 subjected to the hugest of Barack Obama Administration Internet power grabs. Where the Administration unilaterally decided to start applying 1934 landline telephone law to the 21st-Century-Web. This government grab was made under the guise of Network Neutrality – but this flashback-to-New-Deal phone law is oh-so-much-worse. The Administration has appointed itself the overlord of just about every private sector decision, transaction | Read More »

    A New Approach – To Finally End an Old Farm Bill Problem

    The Farm Bill is a bane of we Conservatives’ existence – and Reality-based policy making. It is a relic of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR)’s horrendously failed New Deal – a top-down, central-planning nightmare mess. And over the last eighty-plus years, FDR’s heinous domestic policy has gone global. A worldwide farm market has arisen. We no longer just grow for ourselves. We sell all over | Read More »

    The FCC Delivers the Latest Dose of Obama Cronyism

    The huge-er government gets – the greater its ability to deliver cronyism goodies. The bigger the wallet government has – the larger the regulatory hammer it wields – the more Crony Socialism it can dispense. Remember when President Barack Obama said this? “We’re going to punish our enemies and reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.” The Obama | Read More »

    GOP: The Grade School Boy Trying Too Hard to Get the Silicon Valley Girl

    As an adult, watching a fifth grade boy who obviously likes a fifth grade girl is at once amusing – and nostalgically bittersweet. The shyness, the awkwardness, the indecision. But mostly, it’s the limitless lengths to which the boy will go to try to please the girl. Hopefully, we as men and women grow out of this – and at least get a little better | Read More »

    Videos: Guy Who Convinced Obama to Dramatically Ramp Up Internet Power Grab – Is an Uber-Boob

    Tomorrow’s Barack Obama Administration Internet unilateral uber-power grab is larger, worse and more heinous than it was just four months ago. That is because Obama-campaign-cash-bundling Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler has knuckled under to the President’s November demand to ramp it WAY up. What preceded President Obama’s November demand? This: In a lucky coincidence, Tumblr Chief Executive David Karp , who attended the | Read More »

    When The Media Report ‘Patent Trolls’ – Think ‘People Protecting Their Private Property’

    You’ve heard the phrase “patent trolls,” yes? Certainly not a positive sounding term. I mean – trolls? How positive an image does that conjure? The Media are almost always opposed to all things good. So when they with near unanimity help promulgate a term – you need to (re)contemplate its definition. Stopping the Economy-Sapping Patent Trolls Patent Trolls Mean Big Damage for US Economy Patent | Read More »

    VIDEO: What Obama’s Internet Power Grab Means for Free Markets and Free Speech

    February 26 is Internet Doom’s Day. That is the day President Barack Obama’s campaign-coin-bundling Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler will jam through President Obama’s Title-II-Reclassification-Net-Neutrality power grab. (At this point, I wish Chairman Wheeler had instead been appointed an ambassador – like oh-so-many other Obama contributors.) Meanwhile, President Obama wants to ramp up government-provided broadband.  To fill the void his Internet regulatory body | Read More »

    When Governments Start Meddling, They Simply Can Not Stop Themselves

    For governments everywhere, taxes and regulations are like Lays Potato Chips – no one can eat just one. In part, of course, because governments’ appetite for taking our money and controlling our lives is insatiable. It’s their nature. And because government intervention just about always makes things worse. ObamaCare Makes Things Worse Damaging Dodd-Frank is Making Things Worse Obama’s ($787 Billion) Stimulus Plan Made Crisis | Read More »

    Three More Obama Admin Casualties: Congress, Federalism – and Humility

    It’s been a bad six years for the United States of America. The examples are myriad. The national debt has nearly doubled – from ten trillion dollars to over eighteen trillion dollars. The workforce participation rate has decreased precipitously – to a level not seen since the mid-1970s. (The phony “unemployment rate” is irrelevant – and its computation process is in desperate need of Reality-based | Read More »
