The Elon Musk Myth Looks to Contaminate Texas

The Myth of Elon Musk is that of daring entrepreneur.  An avant garde, cutting edge businessman who sees a little bit further around the curve of the Earth – to get a glimpse of the Next Big Thing before the rest of us are able see it.

Free Trade, Automation, And Were the Luddites Wrong?

Yesterday in the comments on Dan Spencer’s post on Trump’s threat to slap a tariff on some Cheverolet’s manufactured in Mexico there was a discussion of free trade versus protectionism from a job protection point of view. Because, ultimately, protectionism is as much about protecting jobs as it is about protecting businesses. The question is how does what purports to be a free society operate | Read More »

The EPA Finally Has Something Legitimate It Could Do – So of Course It’s Not Doing It

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is notorious for serially, consistently doing things the laws as written do not allow it to do.  Meanwhile, its bureaucrats are so unlawfully distracted –  they miss a mess they are actually supposed to address. Is the EPA constantly doing things it’s not supposed to do?  Absolutely. Supreme Court: EPA Unreasonably Interpreted the Clean Air Act Supreme Court Deals Blow | Read More »

Trump Knows, Media Don’t: One-Sided ‘Free Trade’ – Isn’t Free Trade

The media (and the entire media-Left-NeverTrump contingent) remain steadfast in their opposition to now-President-elect Donald Trump.  In their attempts to deny him first the office and now legitimacy therein, they have come up with all sorts of shorthand descriptives that are either vague or outright disingenuous. One of the most annoying of these – is “Donald Trump is anti-(free) trade.” Trump Targets Free Trade, and | Read More »

2017: Trump’s Reality Revolution Won – Now It Must be Implemented

Washington, D.C. has been – for decades, in bipartisan fashion – a swallowing void of anti-Reality.  The federal government has at best terribly mishandled, at worst utterly destroyed everything in which it insists on involving itself. Despite this record of nigh perfect imperfection – the list of things in which the federal government insists on involving itself has continued to inexorably grow.  And as the | Read More »

Trump Is Looking to Go – ‘Big League.’ Congress Says They’re Ready. Let’s Do It

President-elect Donald Trump is from all appearances looking from Day One to very rapidly go very “big league.”  And by “big league” – he means huge reductions in the amounts of the federal government to which we are subjected. After more than a century of Washington, D.C. ceaselessly, inexorably vacuuming up power that Constitutionally belongs to the states, municipalities and/or We the People – Trump’s | Read More »

Donald Trump, the Energy President?

As the puzzle-pieces of the Cabinet assemble, it is clear that domestic energy development will play a key role in the Trump Administration’s strategy to reinvigorate the American economy. Following is an excerpt from a blog post I wrote after Obama’s 2012 State of the Union address (emphasis in original): I keep circling back to the central irony of the Obama Presidency: Obama could have been the | Read More »

Shocker: Government Bureaucrats Don’t Understand Business or Economics

It is one of the many, many reasons our nation’s Founding Fathers profoundly limited government. They trusted businessmen much more than they trusted government bureaucrats. Because they knew: Those who can – do. Those who can’t – regulate those who can. The Founders knew the private sector is better, stronger and faster than government. And smarter. And better behaved. And better intended. And…. The Founders | Read More »
