A dab of Communism and a dash of Fascism, Barack Obama’s economic philosophy in practice

By 11 Comments 742 views

The primary reason Communism doesn’t work is that it goes against the very nature of man. In Communism there is simply no motivation for anyone to work hard. When there is a zero correlation between the amount or quality of work you do and the compensation you receive, your motivation to work hard, or maybe… Read more »

My rapidly fading love affair with Wal-Mart

By 41 Comments 1,174 views

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… Read more »

Memento: The story of liberals who can’t seem to learn from reality…

By 40 Comments 977 views

If you’ve never seen the movie Memento, I would highly recommend it… The main character, Leonard, is suffering from anterograde amnesia – the inability to create new memories – the result of a violent attack. Unable to create new memories, Leonard uses tattoos and notes to help him find the person he believes is responsible… Read more »

Prosperity’s Bible & Einstein’s Definition of Insanity

By 4 Comments 441 views

Albert Einstein defined Insanity thus: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. One has to wonder what Einstein would think of the left’s continued desire to inflict centralized planning on the citizens of the United States. Central planning has been a failure virtually every time it’s ever been implemented, whether… Read more »

My rather lopsided love/hate relationship with Barack Obama…

By 35 Comments 888 views

Some time ago I was talking with a guy I know and the issue of politics came up followed soon thereafter by the mention of Barack Obama. I instantly said “I hate that guy!” Afterward I wondered if that was really an accurate statement… after some introspection I have to admit, it’s kinda true. I… Read more »

Those who don’t learn from history are bound to repeat it… Barack Obama pushes sub-prime mortgages… again!

By 18 Comments 668 views

There’s something macabre about an imminent train wreck, you know exactly what is coming but you can’t help but watching. Now imagine that instead of watching that train wreck from atop a building a safe distance away, you’re standing right between the train and the tanker truck that has stalled on the tracks. That’s a… Read more »

Obamacare – What good is health insurance if you lose the freedom to live your life as you choose?

By 25 Comments 1,438 views

One of the many reasons conservatives dislike government overreach is because government is so often wrong about so much. And what’s worse, regardless of the magnitude of the government’s failures, citizens are stuck with the consequences of those policies, in most cases forever. This is not a new phenomenon. This has been going on for… Read more »

Life imitates art… Liberals see the world as they imagine it is, not how it actually is

By 24 Comments 992 views

I’ve always been a fan of Van Gogh’s paintings. I similarly like Renoir, and Seurat. Although I like some of Picasso’s early work, most of it I find a bit odd. My favorite artist however is William Adolphe Bouguereau, a 19th century French artist whose works are the polar opposite of the impressionists, literally. From the… Read more »

Democrats’ first step in regulating profits of all businesses [Reader Post]

By 49 Comments 709 views

Dennis Kucinich is arguably one of the most anti-American members of the United States Congress and seems continuously determined to prove it. He has introduced a plan to regulate oil company profits- or, rather to prevent them.

Six House Democrats, led by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), want to set up a “Reasonable Profits Board” to control gas profits.
