The Second Amendment is NOT about hunting

Cmblake6's Weblog

The Second Amendment was written to protect the rest. The First Amendment was FIRST to give the option of the government listening to the desires of We The People, and if they didn’t, voila’, the Second came into effect. I still say completely repeal the NFA34, and everything since related, but this is a start.

Dark Humor from the Socialist Hellhole of Venezuela

International Liberty

Back in 2015, I mocked Venezuelan socialism because it led to shortages of just about every product. Including toilet paper.

But maybe that doesn’t matter. After all, if people don’t have anything to eat, they probably don’t have much need to visit the bathroom.

The Washington Postreports that farmers are producing less and less food because of government intervention, even though the nation is filled with hungry people.

Venezuela, whose economy operates on its own special plane of dysfunction. At a time of empty supermarkets and spreading hunger, the country’s farms are producing less and less, not more, making the caloric deficit even worse. Drive around the countryside outside the capital, Caracas, and there’s everything a farmer needs: fertile land, water, sunshine and gasoline at 4 cents a gallon, cheapest in the world. Yet somehow families here are just as scrawny-looking as the city-dwelling Venezuelans waiting in bread lines or picking through garbage for scraps.

ObummerCare

Indyfromaz's Blog: The Thoughts of An Independent Arizonan

So this is what Democrats feel is wonderful and The Republicans refuse to deal with…
Next year, average benchmark premiums for Obamacare plans are expected to rise 15 percent more than they did this year, according to projections from the Congressional Budget Office.

“In 2018, the agencies project, the average benchmark premium will be roughly 15 percent higher than it was in 2017.
Additionally, premiums for benchmark plans are expected to rise an average of 5 percent each year from 2017 through 2027.

The budget office projects that average premiums will total $3,400 for a 21 year old, $4,800 for a 45 year old, and $9,800 for a 64 year old this year.

So what happened to it going down $2500? Hmmmm???

Additionally, the report finds that due to higher premiums, the number of uninsured individuals is expected to increase.

“For 2026, the agencies’ projection of the number of people…

Keynesian Economics and the Fallacy of Boosting Growth by Destroying Wealth

International Liberty

Keynesian economics is like Freddie Krueger, constantly reappearing after logical people assumed it was dead. The fact that various stimulus schemes inevitably fail should be the death knell for the theory, which is basically the “perpetual motion machine” of economics. Indeed, I’ve wondered whether we’ve reached the point where the “debilitating drug” of Keynesianism has “jumped the shark.”

Yet Keynesian economics has “perplexing durability,” probably because the theory tells politicians that their vice of profligacy is actually a virtue.

But there are some economists who genuinely seem to believe that government can artificially boost growth. They claim terrorist attacks and alien attacks can be good for growth if they lead to more spending. They even think natural disasters are good for the economy.

I’m not joking. As reported by CNBC, the President of the New York Federal Reserve actually thinks…

New Hillary Emails Warrant Special Prosecutor

Socialism is not the Answer

American Thinker

New emails unearthed by Judicial Watch confirm that the Clinton Foundation was in fact a pay-to-play influence peddling operation far more worthy of a special prosecutor than imaginary Russians colluding under Trump Administration beds. It is time for President Trump to keep the promise he made in the presidential debate to indict Hillary Clinton for her crimes:

About 20 minutes into the debate, Donald Trump delivered a menacing threat to Hillary Clinton. “If I win,” he warned, “I’m going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there’s never been so many lies, so much deception.” …

“It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” Mrs. Clinton observed.

“Because,” Mr. Trump replied “you’d be in jail.”

The emails fully incriminating Hillary are part of…

Dear Celebrities: NOBODY CARES WHAT YOU THINK!!!

Socialism is not the Answer

Oath Keepers

by Shorty Dawkins

In the following video, Candace Owens, of Red Pill Black, expresses her feelings on celebrities using their celebrity to advocate political and social opinions. It is not that they don’t have the right to speak out, as every American has Freedom of Speech. No, it is the plain and simple fact that NOBODY CARES!

Do I care what George Clooney, Madonna, Alec Baldwin, or a host of other brainless celebrities have to say about subjects other than their profession? No. Why should I? They offer only parroted versions of the Elite’s propaganda. Why should I waste my time listening to them?

When movie stars choose to speak out and insult me for being a thinking human being, they merely encourage me to boycott their movies. When sports figures do the same, I don’t bother with their sport. They apparently don’t get it that it is…

Poll’s Warning for GOP: Back the Trump Agenda or Face Defeat in 2018

THAT'S WHAT I'M SCREAMING

By: Timothy Daughtry

Poll’s Warning for GOP: Back the Trump Agenda or Face Defeat in 2018

“You dance with the one who brung you to the dance.”

The wisdom of that old political adage might seem outdated in this age of expensive consultants, focus groups with instantaneous tracking of reactions, and micro-targeting of voters. But the McLaughlin & Associates pollreleased this week reinforces the wisdom of that adage for any Republican who wants to avoid defeat in the 2018 primary season and in the general election that follows.

The message of that McLaughlin poll could not be clearer or simpler for Republicans as they choose in the coming weeks between the agenda of President Trump and the agenda of the Beltway insiders:  The base that brought you to the dance supports the Trump agenda.Dance with your base and win.Dance with the Beltway and lose.

To be fair, elected Republicans face many practical pressures inside the Washington Beltway. There are always K Street…

Free Enterprise: The World’s only Successful Strategy for Poverty Reduction

International Liberty

In prior years, I’ve shared some videos with powerful messages with a common message. Grinding poverty used to be the normal human condition, but then rule of law and limited government enabled a dramatic increase in prosperity.

All these videos are worth watching. They show that misery used to be pervasive but then we became rich starting a couple of hundred years ago.

But there’s one shortcoming in these videos. They basically tell a story of how the western world became rich. In other words, they describe how North American and Western Europe went from agricultural poverty to middle class prosperity.

What about the rest of the world?

Well, there’s a good story to…
