Why Is Government Involved In The Global Warming Religion?

Dec 1st, 2015 Environment, Government, Regulation Bill B. May 3 min read

 by Bill B. May Today, I’ve posted two articles about global warming, coinciding with the big conference in Paris.  The first, Paris In the Fall: COP-21 vs Climate Evidence, shatters most of the evidence about human-caused global warming.  The second is NASA’s arguments attempting to justify the conclusion that man is the culprit, Climate change: How do we know?. I’ve been convinced for a long time…

The Federal Reserve Bank: Useful or Folly?

Nov 30th, 2015 Economics, Liberty, Regulation Bill B. May 2 min read

 by Bill B. May I posted an article titled The Problem With “Rules-Based” Monetary Policy which talks about whether the Fed should be restricted to some formula that dictates its decisions on monetary policy as opposed to “gut” feelings which it seems to use now.  I question the whole idea of a Federal Reserve Bank. The original idea was we needed a central bank to be,…


The American Form Of Government

 by Bill B. May A ten minute video explaining various kinds of government.  Well worth watching but it does not quite explain a government based on liberty.  Instead, it talks about a government based on laws, called a Republic, and to get around laws being derived democratically, it fixes those laws in the constitution, with no new laws allowed.  Rome was the example given and…


More Gun Violence

 by Bill B. May Another day and another headline involving gun violence.  The cry will go out for the country (or the world) to do something.  But what?  What is to be done?  The political answer is to pass a law, prohibiting the existence of guns, or some lesser regulation.  These laws sound good to the citizenry because if the law could be enforced, gun…

Would a Higher Minimum Wage Help Businesses?

Nov 27th, 2015 * RECOMMENDED READINGS, Economics, Government, Labor, Liberty, Regulation Bill B. May 1 min read

 Ryan Bourne says:   Motivated reasoning and half-baked economics. It is common for Living Wage campaigners to say that adoption of the Living Wage “would benefit staff and businesses.” Why? By increasing pay, it is claimed, firms can reduce turnover, reduce time that their workers take off sick and encourage greater worker effort. This in turn will raise productivity. Some pseudo-economists claim this is evidence of…

 by Bill B. May When we think of Islam, we think of a religion followed by large numbers of people emanating from its origins in the Arab world.    There are many cults of religion in the world that might worship animals, the sun or multiple gods.  But in the case of Muslims, the following is too large to consider as a cult.   And it, like Jews…

Demographics And The Economy

 by Bill B. May In a recent Wall Street Journal article, the author bemoans the fact that the working age population of the world is declining.  Why is a declining population such a big issue?  Well, for the WSJ, business growth is what they are all about.  When business grows, companies that benefit from such growth will benefit with increasing stock prices.  And growing stock…

Terror Group Publicly Humiliates Obama By Thanking U.S. Backed Syrian Rebels For American Weapons – MSM Silent


 Susan Duclos says:  In late September reports surfaced that the U.S. trained Syrian rebels had turned equipment and weapons supplied to them by the U.S. government, over to the al-Qaeda affiliated group al-Nusra Front, as seen in multiple reports from September as well as discussed in the video below from Lou Dobbs Tonight in an interview with Former U.S. Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen.

Democracy Ain’t All It’s Cracked Up To Be

 by Bill B. May Since childhood, we’ve been taught that democracy is the best thing since sliced bread.  When we think of another country in the world, we ask whether it is a democracy or not, thinking that an affirmative answer tells us a lot about how well they are governed.  But is it so? The whole idea is that if the leaders elected democratically do…

What Is Actually Radical About Bernie Sanders’ Democratic Socialism Isn’t the Socialism

Nov 22nd, 2015 Government, Liberty, Regulation, Social Issues Bill B. May 11 min read

 Theo Anderson says:  It isn’t a particularly radical political vision—it’s an unflinching commitment to democracy. “What you are asking for is a cultural revolution,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders to an overflow audience of students at the University of Chicago on September 28, his voice booming off the massive stone walls of the school’s Rockefeller Chapel. He was answering a student’s question about how to translate…
