Why Don’t We Want More Government in the Internet? IDK…China, Maybe?

We less government types have all along the way opposed the ridiculous policy known as Network Neutrality. For a whole host of rational, reasonable free market and free speech reasons. Because more government is always bad for all things free market and free speech. And Net Neutrality is a dramatic increase in government’s involvement in the Internet. We have all along the way warned that | Read More »

It Would Be Nice if the Media Checked at Least a Little into its Leftist Sources

Our “news media” – a term I use as loosely as is possible – never finds it beneath them to use as “sources” whatever Leftist hacks they can find. Nothing matters – so long as their “sources” help to further their efforts to slag non-Leftists. They care not at all how frequently, how much or how deeply these “sources” have lied. Or how deeply corrupt | Read More »

Behold the Two Dumb Definitions of the Dumb Phrase ‘Patent Troll’

Those of us who appreciate a free market economy that actually has vim and vigor – know we need Intellectual Property (IP) protection. Even more so now in our 21st Century Information Economy: “Economy in which knowledge is the primary raw material and source of value.” And how do we protect “knowledge” – “the primary raw material and source of value?” With IP protections – | Read More »

Net Neutrality is Stupid Policy, Has Never Been Popular – and Needs to Finally Go Away

We have on numerous occasions detailed how titanically stupid Network Neutrality is. It in the early 2000s actually began as four innocuous items – to which no one at all objected. Consumers are entitled to access the lawful Internet content of their choice. Consumers are entitled to run applications and services of their choice, subject to the needs of law enforcement. Consumers are entitled to | Read More »

Penny Wise-Pound Foolish is Bad Government Policy

We want less government – in all things. This is not a moment-to-moment, transient concept. This is an overarching, timeless desire. We are not short-sighted in this pursuit. This sometimes means spending a little more government money up front – to save a whole lot of government money later. Spending a little government coin now on a border wall and better border enforcement – will | Read More »

Those in Subsidized Houses – Shouldn’t Throw Crony Government Accusations

We less-government-types want to see an end to as much government subsidy money and protectionism as possible. We who understand economics and human nature – realize the omni-directional warping that government causes. For instance, too many people do the subsidized thing – creating massive surpluses, and attending massive losses.

83% Bots: We Told You the Power Grab ‘Comment Period’ is Titanically Stupid

We have rather recently delved into the scintillating stupidity of the government bureaucracy “Comment Period”: “One of the ways these agencies attempt to cover up their unilateral power grabs – is with a veneer of alleged We the People participation. Behold the utter dumbness of the ‘Comment Period.’ “Where some agency of which you’ve never heard – and to whom you’ve elected no one – | Read More »

Dear Trump FTC: Please Stop Doing Obama FTC-esque Things

As we have repeatedly noted, there is a whole lot of good going on in the Donald Trump Administration. But we are not sporting rose spectacles – we of course recognize that there is some serious bad going on as well. The lion share of the bad – isn’t being done by Trump’s people. It is being done by holdover Swamp creatures – personnel from | Read More »

Why Are So Many Republicans So Stupid About Patents?

It boggles the mind how monstrously dumb the Republican Party can be. They ain’t called “The Stupid Party” for nothing. To wit: The GOP has spent the last seven years winning more than 1,000 elective offices up and down the ballot – in large part because Obamacare has been such an unmitigated disaster. They spent great swaths of that time – campaigning very vigorously on | Read More »
