We Are The Ones We Were Waiting For

I quote F.A. Hayek quite a bit – but for me, two books, Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” and Hayek’s “The Road to Serfdom”, could be, as the old “Law and Order” intro said, “Ripped from the headlines.” These books – Hayek’s published in 1944 and Rand’s in 1957 – are prescient in predicting the events of…

The Trolley Problem

There seems to be a common belief among the pundit class that Trump’s biggest issue going into the election is the public’s unhappiness with his pandemic response. If so, that is one of the most successful propaganda campaigns the Democrats have mounted in this cycle. What makes that interesting is that it is based on…

Flag On The Play

It is well known that President Trump is a counter-puncher. If you hit him, he is going to hit back harder – and for many casual observers (and that is most of the electorate) that is the problem. Think of it this way – you are attending a football game and the game is hotly…

Weekend Musings – Week 40

In 1993, Morningstar wrote an article about his first adventure with postmodernism and deconstructionism titled “How to Deconstruct Almost…

Choose Wisely

The risk of a Democrat dominated government is obvious to all who care to look. Secrecy: they refuse to tell America what their plans and policies are (i.e. court packing). You can learn more by what the refuse to say than what the do. Lack of principles: both Biden and Harris have reversed their positions…

Joe Biden Goes Nuclear

Joe Biden has attraction problem. No, this one isn’t related to his attraction to prepubescent children or sniffing women’s hair, this has to do with his base. His attraction problem is one of an atomic nature – how does he generate the attractive force necessary to keep his nucleus of support together as he defends…
