The Free Market is Only for People Who Have Self-Worth
I’ve been watching over this controversy over the Indiana RFRA with no small amount of genuine amazement. I legitimately cannot relate to the arguments that the opponents of the law are making. The reasons for that are simple: I believe that I have inherent worth and that my spending dollars, earned with my labor, should not be voluntarily given to people who disrespect my sense | Read More »
All Rights Are Equal (But Some Are More Equal Than Others)
Animal Farm remains one of my all time favorite books. It’s a satire of Communist Russia AND it’s got farm animals, so I can read it to my three-year-old and she likes it. The indoctrination has to start early, after all. Now, I know it’s a reference that’s been made on this Front Page before (and, as is often the case, what it’s used for | Read More »

Obama’s Iran Monkey Trap
The idea of a monkey trap is spectacularly elegant. A bit of food or a shiny object is placed inside a sturdy object (often a coconut is mentioned but the image comes from a termite hill being used for the purpose). There is a hole that is just big enough for the monkey’s hand to pass through. However, once the monkey grasps the object its | Read More »
Let Them Eat Cake!
We will all be made to care. Compassion; is now compulsory. You are not allowed to fight your wars against Westasia when Big Brother tells you to fight Eastasia or Eurasia.
