Jerry Klein Showcases Leftist Greed

“I have never understood why it is ‘greed’ to want to keep the money you’ve earned, but not ‘greed’ to want to take somebody else’s money.” ~Thomas Sowell Jerry Klein, in an unusual display of truthfulness, gives us a perfect example of leftist whining. In a recent edition of Creative Loafing, Klein goes on about […]

Subsidizing Choices Distorts Markets

Rent seeking is the name of the game: where special interests seek special dispensation from government in order to improve their position in the market place. Today we have J. Ron Terwilliger advocating for more government intervention and support of his business. (link) Mr. Terwilliger says we have a crisis of affordable housing. He says […]

Sales Tax Allocation Changes Could Right a Wrong

Let us assume that taxes should be applied equitably, collected efficiently, and distributed to benefit society in general. If this is true then our NC tax system, designed and controlled by Democrats for generations, fails on all counts. Comes then a Republican legislature in which some have the intent to change this Red Queen system. […]

Energy Subsidies Cost Us All

Corporatism and liberals go together too well. In Sunday’s Observer, Christopher Gergen and Stephen Martin advocate the continuation of tax credits to encourage the installation of solar farms. In typical leftist fashion they start their plaint for continuing tax credits with an anecdote about a farmer who has leased 40 acres of farmland to Strata Solar […]

A 15 Minute Drive Cost This Man His Job. Thanks Government.

One must enjoy the havoc the Federal Government creates in individual’s lives in the name of regulation, else one would get upset and, perhaps, become disillusioned with our government. Recently the company I work with had a Federal DOT inspection of their log records. Logs are time sheets, kept by truck drivers, ostensibly for safety, […]

Poverty Center Whining

Hypocrisy by the left has become ubiquitous. How many instances of the left decrying the right for some perceived slight need be listed? If the right speaks of marriage between a man and woman, the left whines foul. If the right speaks of pipelines for industry, the left whines foul. If the right speaks of […]

Evaluating Non-Profit Motives

Non-profit is a word descriptive of a type of business entity which has a special tax status. Along with that status comes rules particular to the idea of being not in the business of making a profit.

More Police Pretentiousness

One can only guess what the NC Highway Patrol is telling their patrolmen these days or, for that matter, what type person they’re allowing to wear the uniform. I give you this example. Recently an acquaintance of mine was driving along NC 49 in Cabarrus County. A HP trooper moved into position in front of […]

Distribution Politics, The Reallocation of Scarcity

Let us pretend, for the sake of argument, and differently from those who believe there should be unlimited funding to pay for their personal cause; that there is, indeed, a limited supply of wealth to be spent. Further, let us imagine it is produced by people who work and invest, and not those who only […]

Is Violence the Only Tactic of Terrorism?

Charlie Hebdo is, unfortunately, in the news. Radical Islamic Terrorists, objecting to the satiric content of the magazine, shot and killed the editor and eleven others. In running from the police, others were killed. Let us get this straight: the writers and cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo agitated some people. Those people then decided that they […]
