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.

Pat Caddell: Media Have Become An "Enemy Of The American People"

I've always liked Pat Caddell. I believe he was a pollster for Bill Clinton. But even then when I saw him on TV interviews I was impressed by his willingness to tell it like it is regardless of whose ox is gored.

The headline above is from a story in Real Clear Politics. Watch the video.

Do you think Pat Caddell is exaggerating? Take a look at the headlines below. You and I know about them because they appeared on either the Drudge Report or Weasel Zippers. Little or no mention in the mainstream media.

Now ask yourself: If these headlines were about a Republican incumbent or a Republican administration, would they appear in the mainstream press, or not?

Now, giving credit where credit is due. The following headlines DID appear in the MSM:

That's commendable. But you can be sure these stories won't be discussed on MSNBC.
