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.

Floridians...Abandon Ship!!

This from the Daily Kos: Could Charlie Crist save Florida from climate change?

If you live in Florida, you might want to pack your bags. According to the Daily Kos the Earth's ice caps will melt by the end of the century and Floridians will find themselves underwater. Of course, due to the recent real estate collapse in the state, most Floridians are already underwater, so what else is new?

Seriously, if you believe the video above, it's time to run for the hills...or vote for Charlie Crist!

Yup, it seems America's best known political hermaphrodite is best equipped to literally keep Floridians' heads above water. How? According to the article...
When Charlie Crist had been in the Florida governor's mansion for only one year, he held
a two-day climate summit that he wrapped up by signing three sweeping eco-executive orders.
His plans include adopting California’s strict vehicle-emissions law, making Florida the first Southeast state to go that route; calling for a 40 percent reduction in statewide greenhouse-gas emissions by 2025; and requiring state agencies to prioritize fuel efficiency when buying or renting vehicles and to hold events in facilities certified as green by the state Department of Environmental Protection. Crist is also asking state utilities to produce 20 percent of their power from renewables, and creating a Florida Governor’s Action Team on Energy and Climate Change.
I'm convinced. If anything can stop Mother Earth from melting her ice caps and flooding Florida out of existence, it's a "Florida Governor's Action Team on Energy and Climate Change!"

Good grief! No wonder the irreverent among us call them leftards!
