Vulgar Display of Power: Brutalist Architecture.

If you grew up in Milwaukee, WI, like I did – then you might recognize this: This is the original Milwaukee Art Museum, before mercifully receiving a newer and less horrifying addition next door in the early 2000s. The original museum looks like something out of a 1950’s monster movie – “The Insect that Ate […]

Judgement of Paris: US Out of Climate Change Accord.

President Trump has pulled the USA out of the much-ballyhooed Paris Climate Change Agreement, a major blow to the psyche of Green Mafia members across the world. As the New York Times – top-shelf spokesman for the Green Mafia – lamented: President Trump announced on Thursday that the United States would withdraw from the Paris […]

The Slow Death of Obamacare.

Obamacare is like day-old egg salad in the garbage. The stink seems to increase exponentially. It looks more crusty and gross with each passing hour.  The program is running out of money. Insurers are bailing. Those that remain are hiking rates. Voters are beginning to figure just how badly the program has screwed them, especially […]

“Buy American!” – A Protectionist Dialogue.

In light of the recent announcement of Trump’s “Buy American” executive orders, I present a theoretical dialogue between Trump and myself: Trump: “Buy American!” Me: “Noted.” Trump: “Let me rephrase that: I demand you to buy American.” Me: “Why?” Trump: “Because it’s your duty!” Me: “Why?” Trump: “Because it helps the economy!” Me: “How?” Trump: […]

Does “Free Trade” Hurt Americans?

Pat Buchanan is a sharp political analyst. He strikes at the core of an issue more quickly than Marion Barry could light a crack pipe, which is to say pretty quickly. But his grasp of economics is poor. Not just poor: resoundingly bad. In a recent article commenting on Trump’s State of the Union address, […]

Trump Trumped By… Trump? Fiscal Reality Looms.

On March 15th, the present government is going to hit a brick wall: the expiration of the current budget deal. The debt ceiling holiday agreed upon two years ago is going to end, and the $20 trillion hard debt limit is going to smack the government in the face. That means no more debt unless […]

The End is Nigh: Obama, Globalism, and Running Out of Ideas.

Today, Barack Obama leaves office. He will be honored as a great man. But he is also likely to be quickly discarded by his former left-wing Progressive allies. Why? Because there is only one thing that leftists are interested in: power. Obama will shortly cease to have any political power. This is the only thing […]

Walter Williams: Reality a “Social Construct”?

From Walter Williams, as posted to LewRockwell.com: We will never understand liberals and progressives until we recognize that they often see reality as a social construct subject to being challenged and changed. For example, throughout the world, boys and girls have different toy preferences. Typically, boys like to play with cars and trucks, whereas girls […]
