Co-founder of ACC Hunter Lewis: “Keynesianism is crony capitalism, and crony capitalism is Keynesianism” (Video)

This video is from March of 2012 at the Mises Institute. In it Hunter explains why it is that the current economic regime is fundamentally corrupt and what to do about the situation.

He also explains in detail why it is that we use the term “crony capitalism” versus less precise alternatives.

I highly encourage you to listen to the entire speech if you have the time. It is a half hour well spent.

Putin wants to wall off the Internet

It’s good to remember that this guy is a big big government autocrat and a veteran of the KGB. The entire country is a cleptocacy and compliance to the Putin Plan is requisite for pretty much everyone.

Frankly the administration appears willing to sacrifice the lives of Americans so that it can keep the Senate.

Yeah, I said it.

For some reason knowing how many times you’ve had sex, and what kind of sex you’ve had in the past 3 months affects whether someone has been discriminated against.

Campus Cops With M-16s

Nothing says “education” like seeing the campus police stroll around the quad with machine guns. See, nowadays the governor doesn’t even need to bring in the National Guard. He or she can just instruct the university police to take care of things. Kent State could have been a wholly local affair.
