LIBERTARIAN:[David E. Bernstein] American Civil Liberties Union, RIP

Saturday, November 17, 2018

The ACLU no longer even pretends to believe in civil liberties. In the late 1960s, the ACLU was a small but powerful liberal organization devoted to a civil libertarian agenda composed primarily of devotion to freedom of speech, free exercise of religion, and the rights of accused criminals.

It’s been going hard “left” for a long time.  So sad, it’s a great loss to our “civil society”.

MONEY: Ocasio-Cortez’s rise reveals rampant economic illiteracy in US

Friday, November 16, 2018

Every educated person should understand basic supply and demand. If someone is in the business of laking laws that the rest of us must adhere to, they should ABSOLUTELY have a basic understanding of supply and demand. Sadly, economic ignorance is widespread among both the public and lawmakers.

Maryland Shooting Illustrates What Will Happen If Guns Are Confiscated

Saturday, November 10, 2018

There are people out there who we describe as anti-gun who may not want to take away your guns. They might want to make it virtually impossible for you to buy any more, sell yours, or leave them to your kids, but they don’t actually want to take them away from you.

Interesting that NO ONE knew who sought the protective order.

I predict that police, or others, who seek to enforce such orders will come out on the losing end.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Project Veritas uncovers staffers for Beto O’Rourke appearing to illegally spend campaign funds on caravan aliens

Saturday, November 10, 2018

You have to hand it to James O’Keefe and his group of undercover journalists: Time and again they have caught Left-wing Democrats red-handed doing immoral, improper, and often illegal things. And now it’s Robert “Beto” O’Rourke ’s turn or, at least, some of his campaign staffers .

*** begin quote ***

The pair appears to be using “pre-paid credit cards” and therefore it would, according to an attorney with Project Veritas who viewed the footage, be likely the pair violated Federal Election Commission rules.

Anyone surprised?

VOCABULARY: Don’t Be a Zebra, Be a Giraffe | Innovation Management

Thursday, November 1, 2018

Zebra stands for Zero Evidence but Really Adamant.  Zebras are people who see things in black and white.  They are sure of their own opinions and they disdain information or science which undermines their beliefs.
