There is a great deal of current DC fervor to sanction the daylight out of Saudi Arabia.  In response to the kingdom’s alleged assassination of alleged reporter Jamal Khashoggi. I say “alleged reporter” – because Khashoggi ran for decades with some really bad Muslims. Media Forgets to Mention Jamal Khashoggi was in the Muslim Brotherhood…

The domestic Left really doesn’t like America or Americans very much. In fact, it’s quite reasonable to say the Left loathes America and Americans. Antifa: US Security Agencies Label Group ‘Domestic Terrorists’ Black Lives Matter: FBI Terrorism Unit Says ‘Black Identity Extremists’ Pose a Violent Threat Occupy Wall Street Labeled ‘Terrorists’ By The FBI US…

We the People are inordinately tired of watching criminal wrongdoing go unpunished. It is a large part of what we understood – and what then-presidential candidate Donald Trump meant – when Trump politically coined the term “Drain the Swamp.”  Oft when Trump delivered this particular catch phrase – the crowd responded with “Lock Her Up.”…

The Barack Obama Administration was awful for America, We the People – and the public policies that make the awfulness possible.  In ways and directions too numerous to count. America is (allegedly, supposed to be) a free market economy.  To make it work – We the People need money.  Capital – to fuel the capitalism.…

Just on Tuesday we wrote in opposition to an op-ed – in which the author asserted protecting Intellectual Property (IP) limits one’s ability to move from job to job: “(T)hose (IP) wars ‘challenge the right and freedom to leave jobs, compete with incumbent companies, control ideas and innovate.’ What Lobel calls ‘the criminalization of employment…

I am a huge fan of informed debate.  I have on more than a few occasions been a part of of official, organized panel discussions with representatives of both sides of this issue or that. But I have found two-sided panels to be an endangered species in Washington, D.C.  People here seem to prefer empaneling…

Ahhh…federalism: “(T)he constitutional division of power between U.S. state governments and the federal government of the United States.” Unfortunately, this is too true: “Since the founding of the country, and particularly with the end of the American Civil War, power shifted away from the states and towards the national government.” We’ve discussed this awfulness before:…

We less government types have long championed the outsourcing to private companies the work government wants done.  Contracting out, as it were. Under the perfectly reasonable impression that greater private sector involvement – and conversely less government involvement – will ostensibly improve quality and performance. Unfortunately, this is becoming an increasingly dubious proposition.  With governments…
