I’m Over Here Now

Obviously, there’s been a slowdown of posts here over the last few months. Posting here is going to probably going to remain slow for and maybe get even slower. Lately I’ve been posting over at scottadcox.com for the most part. The posts there are shorter, more snarky, and even less on topic. I’ve had less […]


Francisco d’Anconia – My Mind On My Money

…and my money on my mind. Whether you’ve read his speech from Atlas Shrugged or not, it’s worth reading the whole thing (again). When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion–when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing–when you see […]


Brilliant Republican Strategy

Well, this should make everything ok. A member of the Republican National Committee told me Tuesday that when the RNC meets in an extraordinary special session next week, it will approve a resolution rebranding Democrats as the “Democrat Socialist Party.” Seriously? Are they smoking crack? That’s all they can come up with? It follows logically […]

Paying For Public Health Care

This makes me chuckle. There’s already talk of where taxes will be raised to pay for a national health care plan. Tobacco, alcohol, soft drinks, employer health plans, and HSAs are all being discussed. All the big gov’ment advocates are going to be in for a rude awakening when they realize that all of these […]


What If Massive Spending IS The Answer?

Do you believe the New Deal prolonged the Great Depression? If so, this post may not be for you. You may want to prepare yourself for absolute terror and look at this. If you’re still reading, I’m going to assume you are freaked out by clowns, or you believe The New Deal helped the country […]


What Part of Boolean Algebra Did You Not Understand?

I love rhetoric. I link to stuff here all the time that’s full of it (rhetoric that is), and I’m guilty of utilizing it myself. Maybe “guilty” isn’t the right word. I prefer “adept” to “guilty”, but it’s not my place to use that adjective. I blame it mostly on of Rhetoric in the Classical […]


Knoxville Tea Party Wrap Up

Imagine my surprise to find that in addition to the few fringe/dangerous/extremist wing nuts who ventured out to express their disagreement with the insane spending going on in Washington, a couple of thousand other folks showed up as well. After driving around for 30 minutes or so trying to find a parking spot (must’ve been […]

Some Tax Day and Tea Party Thought

Over on Facebook, a few of my friends have made some interesting remarks in their updates. One is an accountant who is fed up with the complexity and oppression of our tax laws. A couple of others are just hard working guys venting about, well, the complexity and oppression of our tax laws. It made […]

Knoxville Tea Party

Michael Silence has a great round up of links related to the Knoxville Tea Party tomorrow at World’s Fair Park. Currently, this is a non-partisan movement, and I hope it stays that way. Of course there are literally dozens singles of people who actually support the current spending insanity that’s going on and will turn […]


Things I Wonder About

Why is a tax credit for home purchases only good for first time home buyers? Wouldn’t making it available to everyone lure even more people into the market? Doctors, lawyers, engineers, car salesmen, politicians, school teachers, reporters…the list goes on and on.  Is there any profession out there that isn’t loathed by anyone? I’d say […]
