Tech at Night: Insurance companies may attack innovation. A group even more absurd than Bitcoin zealots.
Remember during the height of the Edward Snowden media frenzy, how his defenders would dutifully parrot every word RT said about him? Here’s your great Snowden defender now. RT and Snowden are the enemies of liberty, peace, and the United States of America.
Bitcoin is the fantasy tool of ideologues, the 21st century version of Goldbuggery, but there turns out to be a group even more ridiculous than the Bitcoin zealots: TSA agents.

Taxes and Regulations Cost We Consumers a Whole Lot of Money
The Left is in a perpetual state of anti-free market angst. Even the barest inkling of private sector activity drives them bananas. They want to stop it – and if they can’t, they try to retard it as much as possible. Their main impediment agent is government. The more space government takes up – the less room there is for private enterprise. So the Left | Read More »

My rapidly fading love affair with Wal-Mart
The first time I ever saw a Wal-Mart I was a grad student getting my MBA down in Tallahassee, FL. One opened up down the road from my apartment and I was immediately taken by the big bright stores with lots of stuff and what seemed to be pretty low prices. In class I learned the secrets to Wal-Mart’s success in its niche of “Always | Read More »

Queen Michelle versus the young knuckleheads
If you want to sum up everything wrong with the way our arrogant Ruling Class looks upon its child-citizens, you could use Michelle Obama’s deep thoughts about why young people should be racing to sign up for the Affordable Care Act. The young have largely turned up their noses at ObamaCare thus far, despite one of the most massive, expensive advertising campaigns in history, including | Read More »

Colorado young people discovering that thousands > hundreds. #obamacare #mandate
A note, and a clarification on this Denver Post piece: Matt Leising spends about $3,600 a year on medication to treat asthma and sinus problems, so he was supportive when Washington politicians were debating the Affordable Care Act. After the law passed and then began rolling out last fall, Leising went to Colorado’s health care exchange website to look for coverage, but the 29-year-old Littleton | Read More »
The Last Time We Were Really Anti-Free Trade? The Great Depression
The cinematic classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” made the broader public aware of the greatness that is Ben Stein. Already a lawyer and speechwriter for Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, Stein was cast as the atonal Economics teacher droning his students into stupor. Stein was asked to improvise on camera a lecture. He chose to in part address one of the fundamental contributors to | Read More »

The Partisan IRS Needs To Be Reformed Or Abolished
So let’s just stipulate up front that not many people harbor love for their neighborhood IRS Agent. They don’t even like the poor guy if he does the stuff he’s supposed to. They really don’t like that person if she or he becomes good at doing the stuff required of an IRS Agent. So it shouldn’t come as a shock that the IRS currently rates | Read More »
LA restaurant imposes explicit 3% #Obamacare surcharge. But wait! There’s more.
It’s hard-nosed to take the 3% Obamacare surcharge imposed upon you and pass it explicitly along to the consumer, as one Los Angeles restaurant is doing. [Video fixed and via @IloiloKano]
The ObamaCare insurance industry bailout warms up on its launch pad
It’s the bailout none dare speak of, the bailout we’re not even supposed to refer to as a “bailout.” No, no, you’re just fearmongering by using that term! Instead, you must talk about “risk corridors.” A risk corridor is a passageway wide enough to accommodate a few billion dollars of bailout money. If you think of the boulder that almost crushed Indiana Jones at the | Read More »
The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 66: Vague Criminal Descriptions, Will (Not) Work for ObamaCare, and How the Media Covers Abuse of Power
Some students at the University of Minnesota do not like the fact that, when descriptions of the suspects of crime on campus are made public, the race of the student is included. But is reporting it worth the risk? The percentage of Americans no longer looking for work is the highest it’s been in almost 40 years. Do we really want to be pushing people | Read More »

You won’t BELIEVE just how furiously Politico spun this #DCCC #Obamacare memo!
Background: Politico has acquired a memo (which they did not share, shockingly*) from presumably the DCCC that describes the strategy, for lack of a better word, of the Democratic party with regard to Obamacare. Essentially, they’re going to: …[t]ell voters Republicans would make the problem worse — raising prescription drug prices, empowering insurance companies and even endangering domestic violence victims. The battle plan, details of | Read More »
How To Stop The Coming Single-Payer Monster
I recently watched a scary message from a RedState email about the single-payer path Obamacare is suppose to be heading. Many of you probably received and watched the message too. His name is Jud Anglin and he runs a healthcare business in Maryland. We already all know where Obamacare is suppose to be heading. He predicts that in 18-24 months (I think he did the | Read More »
