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.

Scary!...Democrat Wish List For 2nd Obama Term

From The Hill via Drudge:

“The critical issues will be revenue generation …"

"Honda, meanwhile, wants Obama to return to healthcare reform...We've got more to do."

"...achieve one-third of the goal of reducing carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050."

"Whatever we go after first has to be a bipartisan issue, whether it's cyber-security, whether it's payroll tax, whether it's the doc fix in Medicare, whether it's the jobs bill – whatever it is – we've got to do it together."

That last quote is the scariest.

Sherman, I am sorry about not commenting as much this week. We are in revival at our church and I barely have time to come home and eat and take a shower, before I drive to church. I haven't even had time to post or comment on Political Realities. Hopefully, I can get back to normal next week.

Larry, I'm barely above water myself. When I began to blog, I never realized the demand on my time. I used to visit many blogs and comment regularly. I can't now. Thanks for the sentiment.
