Marco Rubio: Perhaps the Least Helpful Republican

Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio was once the next, newest Conservative Golden Boy…for about three seconds. In the midst of the 2010 Tea Party-fueled revolution election, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell was desperately trying to fend off conservative insurgent candidates. Who were looking to represent the GOP base – who have the audacity to expect the DC GOP to actually do the less government things | Read More »

Amazon Traffic Hijacked – or Why You Don’t Give Anyone a Monopoly Government Contract

We have been doing much to call attention to the looming prospect of the United States Defense Department (DoD) handing online retail giant Amazon a ten-year, $10 billion (and likely more) monopoly contract to provide all of its cloud storage. This is a horrendous idea – for a whole host of reasons. Let us begin with the cronyism. The government departments that do the contractor | Read More »

Nothing Says ‘Small Business’ – Like Big Government Handing Big Business Big Crony Policy

Ronald Wilson Reagan was our heroic, adored, uber-accomplished Fortieth President of these United States. Reagan understood implicitly things most allegedly intelligent people – charged with solving public policy problems – spend lifetimes getting woefully incorrect. Reagan then brilliantly distilled them into exquisite sentences that cut through the manure – and made their inherent wisdom mass-understandable. But one example of Reagan’s genius: “You can’t be for | Read More »

The Lies the Left Tells Us – and Themselves

“They were never going to let me be president.” This was 2016 Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton’s delusional reaction to the less her awful, dishonest, and-yet-entitled campaign falling short of the mark. Clinton was absolutely sure she would win. In no small part because the media – Clinton’s combo steno pool and cheerleading team – promised her and everyone else she would win. Who is Clinton’s | Read More »

Amazon: Government Has an Ongoing Problem Issuing Monopoly, Crony Contracts

We’ve oft noted the government’s inability to do well…just about anything. It’s why our Founding Fathers drafted our Constitution to severely proscribe what the federal government is supposed to do. And why they highly recommended all other levels of government follow their limited prescription. We less government types see our $4-trillion-per-year federal government – and are rendered nauseous. The Feds are doing countless things the | Read More »

Those of us who didn’t succumb to government schools – know of the horrendous days of Democrat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his hyperactive, spastic, shotgun-style approach to government. Completely clueless on how to address the Great Depression, Roosevelt’s administration chose to spasmodically fire government money in nigh every direction. Hoping to spray enough bureaucratic coin to cover the Earth – and thereby mitigate the | Read More »
