Native American reservations: America’s failed Socialist experiment

Posted by in Economy, Native Americans, Socialism

Imagine a country that has a corrupt authoritarian government. In that country no one knows about checks and balances or an independent court system. Private property is not recognized in that country either. Neither can one buy or sell land. And businesses are reluctant to bring investments into this country. Those who have jobs usually work for the public sector. Those who don’t have jobs subsist on entitlements that provide basic food. At the same time, this country sports a free health care system and free access to education. Can you guess what country it is?

Obesity in America and the Nanny State

Posted by in Charity, Health, Welfare State

This is a huge waste of dollars not just because the government is top-heavy and inefficient, but because the cause of obesity in America is obvious to even the casual observer. The government makes people fat, end of story. How this occurs is slightly more complex, but a typical 8th grader–the equivalent of a 2nd grader in the 1950s–can follow this reasoning.


Are Leafy Greens the Next Civil Right?

Posted by in Food, Lifestyle, Welfare State

The feel-gooders and foodicrats bemoaning the food desert “crisis” fail to take into account that, even in poverty-plagued, welfare wrecked urban neighborhoods, the free market is at work. If “Whole Foods” really had a viable market in an inner city burg, they would open a store.
