The Anti-Property Mindset the Internet Has Helped Foster – and Expand

Nothing has made easier the ability to speak and reach an audience.  Steve Gutenberg and his printing press were revolutionary – the World Wide Web is exponentially more so. Nothing has made the conducting of commerce more facile.  Anyone selling | Read More »

Trump’s Mexico Trade Deal: Great for Intellectual Property, Awful for IP Thieves Canada and China

President Donald Trump yesterday delivered on yet another campaign promise. He announced the demise of the very awful North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).  In the alternative, we now have what he is calling “The United States-Mexico Trade Agreement.” Trump correctly prefers bilateral to multilateral deals.  Because every additional partner beyond one – dilutes the U.S.’s enormous inherent economy-size advantage. NAFTA had two partners – | Read More »

California Fires Demonstrate the Dumbness of Net Neutrality – Not the Need for It

As we have oft noted, the nation’s Tech Media is a perfect microcosm of the Traditional Media.  They are largely unintelligent, profoundly unoriginal and mostly hardcore Leftist. When a Tech story hits – the Tech Media reacts in unison.  When a Tech story breaks through to the Traditional Media – the Traditional reaction is identical to the Tech Media reaction. And so it was with | Read More »

‘Free Trade?’ Other Countries’ Domestic Subsidies – Kill American Companies and Jobs

I shouldn’t have been as surprised as I have been that more Americans do not better understand how awful global trade – as constituted for decades – has been for Americans and America.

Congress Reminds Us How Titanically Stupid Bureaucracy ‘Comment Periods’ Are

The Left loathes those who lobby Congress.  Well, those who lobby Congress for less government.  The others – not so much. The Left loathes these Congressional lobbyists…almost certainly because they are expressly defended in the Constitution – and we know the Left isn’t at all fond of the Constitution. For the government school victims in our midst, here’s the Constitution’s First Amendment: “Congress shall make | Read More »

Pro-Net Neutrality Big Tech – Is with Conservatives as Anti-Neutrality as You Can Get

Network Neutrality is absolutely awful policy.  It is a huge government imposition on the entirety of the Internet.  It has zero business being even considered – by any nation laying even the remotest claim to being a free market economy. Net Neutrality is a ginormous Fourth Amendment violation.  Private Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have spent more than $1 trillion building their Web networks.  Net Neutrality | Read More »

DC Again Misidentifies a Problem – For Crony, Self-Serving Reasons

In the great Aaron Sorkin based-upon-real-life movie “Charlie Wilson’s War” there is a brief yet very apt exchange between Texas Representative Charlie Wilson and CIA agent Gust Avrakotos: Wilson: “No, I don’t understand…because I’m stupid.” Avrakotos: “No, you’re not stupid – you’re just in Congress.” In the area of pharmaceuticals and their national and international markets – Georgia Republican Congressman Buddy Carter perfectly fits the | Read More »
