The Solution (to Music Royalty Payments) is Less Government – Not More

Government damages and destroys everything it touches. Things afflicted with any sort of government – warp and wither. At the very least, they are hampered from better bettering their situations. The federal government is a $4-trillion-a-year nightmare mess. The Barack Obama Administration spent eight years endlessly expanding government – time and again to our national detriment. Obamacare made everything health insurance demonstrably worse. Dodd-Frank made | Read More »

Government Duplicates When It’s Stupid – and Doesn’t When It’s a National Security Imperative

The late, inordinately great Ronald Reagan wisely noted: “We could say the government spends like drunken sailors – but that would be unfair to drunken sailors. Because the sailors are spending their own money.” The late, inordinately great Sir Ernest John Pickstone Benn wisely noted: “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying | Read More »

The Media-Left’s Warped, Hypocritical, Political Definition of ‘Monopoly’

As DC-based nationally syndicated radio host Chris Plante rightly notes: “Were it not for double standards – the Left would have no standards at all.” To wit: How the Media-Left (please pardon the redundancy) criminally abuses the definition of “monopoly.” Or, conversely, cares not a whit about and in fact defends a monopoly. All depending upon whether or not the company in question is or | 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 »

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 »

WATCH: 😡 Ted Cruz Lays Into 😟 Mark Zuckerberg Over Facebook Censoring Conservatives and It Is 😂

Mark Zuckerberg sat before the Senate yesterday, taking questions (and comments) from several Senators over Facebook and its use of user data. While many Senators seemed to have very little idea how Facebook (and perhaps the Internet) even works, Senator Ted Cruz went after Zuckerberg on one of the worst-kept secrets in social media: bias against conservative voices. During Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony | Read More »

Cronyism: Having Your Ex-Employees Award Government Contracts…

…makes it much more likely you’ll get government contracts. We have said it many times before – and we will keep saying it until The Purge finally occurs: President Donald Trump’s far-and-away biggest mistake as chief executive – was not making MANY more people depart the government upon his taking over its top spot. Trump is currently in the midst of an additional round of | Read More »

Defense Dept Gives Trump Enemy Bezos Ten-Year, Monopoly Cloud Contract

Most of us know the expression “Stop biting the hand that feeds you.” Republicans have a long history of flipping that script – and feeding the hands that bite them. We’ve had various times during the past several decades where Republicans controlled both houses of Congress and the Presidency – and yet Republicans continue to have government fund the Leftism that seeks to destroy them. | Read More »
