    We Are Not Yet a Banana Republic ... We, the Nation, Are At Great Peril.

    It is time politicians like Franks be held accountable. We really should drag Barney Frank before the American people and horse whip him. There was a time politicians like this would have been driven out of Congress in shame. Today we have no more shame. Chapter 11 would have...

    Why Does the Government Have Any Business Or Say In Our Health Care In the First Place?

      Dr. Sowell proves the adage that “words mean things” ... yes folks, they do have meaning. “Why do people think federal-run health care will work better than state-run DMVs?” Common sense is an uncommon virtue. Technological progress cannot be...

    Thoughts On Some Books

      Experience is what changes one’s mind, rather than “books”, books can influence. What Liberals have is “attitudes towards experience”, because they never claim their own experience always defering to someone elses. Dr. Sowell is a master at...
