If you are offended by seriously bad language just scroll to the next post. Mr. Carlin doesn’t mince words.
We don’t agree completely with this particular bit, but we appreciate the sentiment that is for sure. And there may be no better day to feature this particular video so we feature it.
Live life..And let live everybody… – Marvin Gaye
In light of the shootings which have gripped us. In light of the anger. In light of the rage. In light of the insanity of things – this album is worth a listen, particularly for our white readers, but everyone. It was made 45 years ago but it’s fresh. It still speaks.
Regular readers of ACC know that I am occasionally prone to splicing music videos into posts.
I don’t always agree with Charles Hugh Smith but I very often do. He is someone people who care about the economy and politics should read regularly.
Look, the American dream can’t happen with central banks acting the way they have and the federal government regulating the real, productive, private economy to death.
I saw this clip years ago and was just reminded of it. It is extremely well done and is prophetic. Always be weary of the political snake oil salesman.
This is a real US government logo. Funny, I thought the Constitution specifically limited the reach of government.
If there is one area of current policy/politics which really makes me sigh it is the growing, ever growing, surveillance state. It’s bad for the country. It’s in violation of the spirit of the Constitution (and likely the letter in many circumstances). It’s bad for the economy.

This is encouraging. If there is any place where free market reforms can help people practically immediately it is in the inner cities of the United States. Decades of massive government in our metropolises have created nothing but poverty and war zones, death, addiction, and despair.
Seriously, what kind of monster would be against this?
Lemonade stands are one of the greatest things that have ever been and likely will ever be.
Pot is by far the illegal drug of choice for Americans. People want it. It’s part of American culture. It is relatively safe. It also is a huge source of income for the Mexican cartels. Legalize the drug and the profit margin on what is essentially a vegetable (but easier to grow than broccoli) disappears. As the profits diminish so too does power and influence.
It’s a question I have asked since I was a small boy. John Stossel asks it in the attached piece.
I don’t agree with the author on every point, but agree with him on most.
In case you missed the ad here it is.
In an article entitled Washington, DC, The Land of the Well Educated Rent Seeker, I say that Washington, DC reminds me a lot of the gleaming capital in The Hunger Games movie.
