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.

Say It Isn't So, John...You Unprincipled, Two-faced Moron

On the heels of Rep. Mike Kelly's rant against big government on the House floor and the subsequent news from the Cato Institute that Kelly's voting record belies his words, comes this from CNS News:

Boehner Indicates GOP House May Fund Obama's 'Attack on Religious Liberty'

Oh, yeah, the Obama Administration's new regulation that "requires virtually all health care plans to cover, without cost-sharing, sterilizations, contraception and abortion-inducing drugs" is scheduled to go into effect this coming Wednesday.

In February of this year Boehner called the regulation "an unambiguous attack on religious freedom in our country." To date Boehner's House Republicans have not lifted a finger to stop the funding of the regulation. At a press conference last Thursday the mealy-mouthed and unprincipled Boehner said:
“We’re continuing to work with those groups around the country who believe that their religious liberties are being infringed to try to come to a resolution of this issue. Sometimes resolving these issues can sometimes best be done other than legislative avenues. So we’re continuing to work with them on the best way forward.”
In other words the tan and two-faced Leader of the House Republicans wants Catholics to swallow the regulation whole. If you recall earlier this year Obama betrayed Catholic Archbishop Timothy Dolan on this issue, apparently promising him one thing and doing another. Now Dolan's getting the exact same treatment from Boehner.

As the old saying goes, with friends like this who needs enemies!

I was reading about this yesterday. The Republican leadership is basically running scared from the accusations that they are conducting a war on women. They are afraid of the political repercussions of the actions they should be taking. It's really a shame.

I agree. There is too much "establishment" in this leadership and not enough Tea Party.
