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.

Washington DC Is The Bad Joke

I read this morning that back in June of last year the Republican Majority leader in Congress was recorded as saying in a private meeting with colleagues that he thinks Trump is on Putin's payroll.

Now that this moldy news has appeared as a worldwide news flash this week in the Washington Post Rep. Kevin McCarthy is claiming his comment was just a bad joke.

Reuters reported that it "could not confirm authenticity or gauge whether McCarthy was joking" because it "does not have a copy of the tape."


I got news for Reuters, McCarthy, the Washington Post and every other beast inhabiting the swamp: Washington DC is the bad joke.

All I can say is keep it up boys and girls in the swamp. Keep acting like the spoiled, privileged brats that you are. Keep throwing tantrums. Keep taking the stupid games you play seriously. Keep taking yourselves seriously. All you are doing now is proving to those who don't already know that you are all a bunch of pathetic losers.

We tried taking you morons seriously once or twice before. We tried last November. But you snubbed us, laughed at us, made us the brunt of the gigantic, inside joke you call the federal government and the Department of Justice.

We sent Mr. Trump to Washington to drain your swamp.

Well, your very existence proves that ain't working.

Here's another news flash for you clowns: Nothing you do in Washington DC matters. All the issues you argue and fight about are petty and absurd. They are nothing more than figments of your inflated ego.

Nobody out here in flyover country gives a damn about the games you play. You're simply not relevant to anything we hold dear: our families, our liberty, our property.

We won't rest until the swamp is drained and you're flopping on shore like a dying fish.

You guys in the swamp remind me of my student government in high school, full of sound, fury and self-importance, but ultimately signifying nothing.

But keep messing with us and you'll really get our dander up. Then, we'll get really, really pissed.

Then the joke will be on you!
