The story behind Planned Parenthood’s big, bad investment in Jon Ossoff

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Planned Parenthood gets half a billion from taxpayers. (Sorry folks, whatever side of the abortion issue you are on, that is just flat out wrong.) Then it invests money into candidates that further its agenda. The abortion provider gave $20 million to Hillary Clinton in her failed campaign.

Ron Paul explains the Subprime mortgage crisis and predicts the dollar collapse (VIDEO)

If you REALLY want to understand what happened in 2008 read Meltdown by Tom Woods. It’s not a tome. Quick read and common sense.

Everyday people would be wise to understand the basics of what is called “Austrian Economics.” The Austrians, not the people who run the Fed, or bobble along on CNBC and Bloomberg were the ones who were right about The Crash we saw in 2008 (and the Great Depression for that matter).

Restaurant Die-Off Is First Casualty Of California’s $15 Minimum Wage

The good news is more people are cooking at home. I guess.

Look, reality is reality. Restaurants, many anyway, operate on thin margins. A forced higher wage means margins disappear as does the incentive to stay open.

Obamacare was crony from the start and it likely will remain so. Now with the GOP’s blessing.

Don’t Bail Out Failing States Like Illinois

Sounds like a case of the “Detroits.” Actually many cases of the Detroits.

The government is too big in these states. There are too many state employees. These employees want unrealistic pensions. (What’s a pension?) They lived like there was no tomorrow for decades and now “tomorrow” is here.

And we ain’t – I repeat are not, will not, ain’t – a’gonna bail you out.

The real answer to the democracy-killing ‘administrative state’

Most Americans have no real idea of the massive power vested (taken?) in the federal bureaucracy. Sure most people get that agencies enforce laws. But most don’t know that agencies do much more than that, and often create what amounts to law out of thin air via “rules” and “guidance.” Woe to to the business caught up in the bureaucratic net.

This is the “administrative state.” Part of the “deep state.”
