Psst… The Government Thinks Inflation is “Too Low”

I talk a lot about big government. Mostly, about how it takes advantage of people to grow its own power at our expense. In doing so, it makes our lives more difficult, drives up the cost of living, and takes away the very freedoms that the federal government was created to help protect. And while […]

Fauci’s Emails and the Dark Side of Bureaucracy

This week, over 4,000 pages of emails sent and received by Dr. Anthony Fauci were made public through FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests by Buzzfeed and The Washington Post. These emails span from January to June 2020, and contain all sorts of insights into the hellish year-and-change our country just experienced. And while many […]

Chip and Joanna Gaines Are… Canceled?

Chip and Joanna Gaines, beloved stars of HGTV hit show Fixer Upper, are the latest to be burnt at the stake by the social media mob. Their crime? A $1,000 donation to Chip’s sister, Shannon Braun — who is running for her local school board. But (not surprisingly), news reports on the donation would have […]

Finally, Some Good News…

You don’t need me to list off all the reasons people are feeling down and defeated right now — it’s been a tough year. The future seems uncertain. Fortunately, even the most terrible situations can present opportunities for good. You see, a crisis creates problems. By finding ways to solve those problems, people with valuable […]

It’s Time We Address the CEO-Cashier Pay Gap…

… At least, that’s what “squad” member Ilhan Omar is saying on twitter this week. Sure, you can say the CEO should be paid less — and the cashiers, busers, and other entry level staff need to be paid more. You can tell your friends. You can tweet it out to the world. It’s your […]

Get Ready For Double-Masking Summer Camp

Do your kids go to summer camp? If so, they’re in for a treat… the CDC has been cooking up plenty of extra-ridiculous regulations that’ll make this a year to remember. Last week, the increasingly authoritarian agency released new guidance on summer activities. Here’s a quick rundown on the requirements, courtesy of Reason. Everyone at […]

Biden’s Plan to “Rescue” America… and the Growing Monster of Government

On Wednesday, in an almost-empty room spattered with a few vaccinated-and-masked politicians, Joe Biden laid out his best stab at saving the country. When he wasn’t insisting that “no amendment to the Constitution is final,” that we “can’t yell fire in a crowded theater,” and that America harbors “white supremacy,” he pitched his “American Family […]

Surprise! The USPS is spying on you

Have you heard? The government entity best known for multi-month mail delays, union strikes, and abysmal customer service is now monitoring social media for dissident thought. That’s right — the USPS is spying on you. (Maybe that’s why some of the Tuttle Twins packages have been delayed… Priorities, people!) We know this thanks to an […]

CNN, Schools, and the Conspiracy Against Truth

I’m going to give you a quick warning. I send plenty of silly and lighthearted newsletters, but I’m about to get pretty real here today. Have you noticed that the strongest forces of our culture are actively conspiring against truth and reason? If you have children, you may have encountered this in the educational world. […]

The Tale of the Government-Caused Cobra Infestation

Ever heard about the time the government caused an infestation of black-market cobras? (Bonus: it’s a lesson opportunity to teach free-market economics!) It all started back when India was under British rule. Largely comprised of uninhabited jungle, the country happened to contain a large population of cobras. I don’t know if you’ve ever encountered one, […]
