About This Blog

Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) was the greatest economist of my time. His greatest works can be accessed here at no charge.

Mises believed that property, freedom and peace are and should be the hallmarks of a satisfying and prosperous society. I agree. Mises proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the prospect for general and individual prosperity is maximized, indeed, is only possible, if the principle of private property reigns supreme. What's yours is yours. What's mine is mine. When the line between yours and mine is smudged, the door to conflict opens. Without freedom (individual liberty of action) the principle of private property is neutered and the free market, which is the child of property and freedom and the mother of prosperity and satisfaction, cannot exist. Peace is the goal of a prosperous and satisfying society of free individuals, not peace which is purchased by submission to the enemies of property and freedom, but peace which results from the unyielding defense of these principles against all who challenge them.

In this blog I measure American society against the metrics of property, freedom and peace.

Venting Some Pent Up Frustrations!!!!!!

REGARDING HIS TWO-TERM PRESIDENCY, Bill Clinton tells David Feherty: "I loved it. I loved every day of it. It’s a good thing we had a two-term limit — I’d have made them vote me out or take me out in a pine box." This is the difference between a modern progressive and a patriot and founding father of yesteryear. George Washington did have the opportunity to serve as President for life, but he intentionally stepped down after two terms. Washington wanted to drive home the point that ours is not a regal Presidency. Washington was a farmer and businessman. In short, he had a life!! He understood the importance of keeping his day job. He knew professional politicians would become arrogant and full of themselves. Bill Clinton, FDR and Maximum Leader Obama are everything George Washington was not. They think they know what's best for individual Americans. Washington knew this country was founded so individual Americans could decide for themselves what's in their own best interests.

MAXIMUM LEADER OBAMA LIES ONCE AGAIN when he tells America at a news conference:
I’d just recommend that everybody take a look at people’s previous statements in terms of whether they thought it was appropriate to go into Pakistan and take out bin Laden. I assume that people meant what they said when they said it — that’s been at least my practice.
That's rich, Maxie. You want us to believe that you meant everything you said when you were running for President in 2008? That your Presidency won't be business as usual? That the health care debate will be on C-Span? That you'll keep lobbyists out of your administration? That you'll balance the budget by 2012? That kind of stuff? What a batch of vainglorious BS! God, I sure to hope Mitt Romney's ad people are paying attention. (via Weasel Zippers) 

SPEAKING OF LIARS, NANCY PELOSI WAS CAUGHT RED-TONGUED by "former CIA counterterrorism chief Jose Rodriguez." Pelosi vehemently insisted a while ago that she was never briefed by the Bush administration about its policy of waterboarding inmates at Gitmo. Then, later, she doubled down saying that she was told waterboarding was not being used. The Washington Post reports that Rodriguez proves Pelosi is a bald-faced liar in his new book, "Hard Measures:"
...Rodriguez reveals that he led a CIA briefing of Pelosi, where the techniques being used in the interrogation of senior al-Qaeda facilitator Abu Zubaida were described in detail. Her claim that she was not told about waterboarding at that briefing, he writes, “is untrue.”

“We explained that as a result of the techniques, Abu Zubaydah was compliant and providing good intelligence. We made crystal clear that authorized techniques, including waterboarding, had by then been used on Zubaydah.” Rodriguez writes that he told Pelosi everything, adding, “We held back nothing.”
I heard Rodriguez interviewed on the radio today by Sean Hannity and Rodriguez repeated his allegations about Pelosi, adding that he has written records to prove he is telling the truth. (via Weasel Zippers)

LOOK SHARP! MAXIMUM LEADER IS GOING TO ADDRESS THE NATION TONIGHT and, apparently, tell us again just how wonderfully decisive and gutsy he was in ordering the Navy Seals to off Bin Laden and bury him at sea! If you want the real story about how Bin Laden went down, read "Manhunt," by Peter Bergen. He appeared on Laura Ingraham's radio show today and basically said Obama's role was small. The operation was conducted by a couple of generals, one in the situation room and another in Southwest Asia. As you will recall Maximum Leader Bush wore a flight suit and gloated in front of a bill board-sized "mission accomplished" banner on an aircraft carrier. I wonder if tonight on TV Maximum Leader Obama will don camo fatigues and face paint with his halo superimposed on a blimp flashing the message: "Huh rah!" (via Weasel Zippers)

SPEAKING OF MAXIMUM LEADERS OBAMA AND BUSH, they seem to have a mighty close relationship since Obama is constantly giving Bush credit for everything that's gone wrong during the Barack Obama four-year tour in parasite D.C. Any bets Obama doesn't give Bush any credit tonight on TV for all the information gathered and all the counter-terrorism military mechanisms set up by the Bush administration? Hell, he probably won't even mention the Navy Seals. The Seals have been on his case lately, saying that the President's decision to nail Osama was a "no brainer." Obama certainly won't give any credit to Jose Rodriguez who told Hannity Monday that Obama wouldn't have been able to pull off the Osama killing if it weren't for waterboarding that Obama disapproves of.

I WATCHED A PROGRAM LAST NIGHT ON THE HISTORY CHANNEL that described the July 20, 1944 attempt by German officers to assassinate Adolph Hitler. Code named "Valkyrie," the plot failed. The program outlined the bloodbath that followed, as Hitler massacred hundreds of plotters. What I found more relevant to our day and age was the Nazi treatment of the Jews. For several years the Nazi propaganda machine slammed the Jews day and night, alleging that they were the reason for Germany's hard times. As we all known, making the Jews the scapegoat for all of Germany's economic and foreign policy problems worked too well. The propaganda was orchestrated by the top German Maximum Leader and his trusted Mini-Leaders, like Goebbels. The propaganda and scapegoating reminded me of what the left and Maximum Leader Obama are doing to America's most successful citizens, the 1%. I'm just saying...

LASTLY, TO ALL THE MAY 1ST OCCUPY WALL STREETERS who are clogging up America's streets, creating mayhem, setting fires, breaking store windows and calling for revolution. All I can say is: "Bring it on, morons!"
