Taxation Isn’t Theft

There are three different terms law enforcement will use to describe crimes in which private property is stolen. Theft is the simplest: it entails the action of stealing. Burglary is when a building is entered illegally with the intent to commit a crime. Most often, the crime involves theft. Finally, robbery is another form of stealing—but unlike simple theft, this involves physical coercion: a gun drawn, a knife pointed, some threat of violence. So if we’re going to use precise language, taxation isn’t theft. It’s much worse: it’s armed robbery. If you think I’m being dramatic, ponder for a moment how the IRS actually works.  First, the government demands that you give a certain portion of your income to them. Remember, they can change the numbers of what you owe at any time. Then, they spend your money on whatever they want… No matter how their plans and policies may violate

Big Government’s Very Bad Week

Yesterday was a pretty bad day to be Joe Biden. By that, I mean it was a bad day to be a petty tyrant attempting to bully millions of businesses into forcing an experimental medication into their employees’ bodies. And as nice as it is to see the Supreme Court affirm many Americans’ most basic rights to bodily autonomy, it shouldn’t have taken a battle at the highest levels of our judicial system. That’s also not to mention the eighteen million healthcare workers whose rights were completely ignored in the ruling. (Do doctors and nurses have different fundamental liberties than welders and cashiers? Apparently that’s what we’re supposed to believe…) Ruling aside, one of the most interesting events of the case’s oral arguments was courtesy of Justice Sotomayor, an Obama appointee who’s sat on the bench since 2009. During arguments regarding vaccines and the virus, she claimed, “We have over 100,000

The Forces Straining to Stop School Choice

Educational choice is a revolutionary idea (though, it shouldn’t have to be.) This kind of freedom endangers the bloated, corrupt, and utterly incompetent public school system in place today. Nationwide school choice would finally bring accountability to a system that has failed our children for decades and actively harmed them for the past two years. It makes sense, then, that public schools–and the powers behind them–are terrified at the thought of finally giving families the power to choose how their children are educated. This month, in opposition to a statewide school choice voucher program, over 100 Ohio public schools sued their state on the grounds of “violating the Constitution.” This kind of desperate maneuver is hardly shocking. Obviously, Coca-Cola would prefer if Pepsi products stayed off the shelves. Just like Ford would love for Chevrolet to be banned, helping sell more F-150s. And Wrangler would be thrilled if Levi’s was swamped

Why I’m Not Buying Today’s “Insurrection” Hysteria

Time to say something controversial: I don’t buy the hullabaloo surrounding this “1/6” anniversary. It’s not that I think the events of one year ago were good. My full-time job is calling out bad government, but hurting people and damaging property to prove a point is wrong: whether in response to election fraud, police brutality, lockdowns, you name it. But… let’s be real here. The breach of the Capitol was not Pearl Harbor. It wasn’t another 9/11. (Contrary to what Kamala Harris claimed this morning… with a straight face! Oy.) It wasn’t terrorism or an assault on our democracy. Of course, the government has a huge incentive to convince us otherwise. The more afraid we are of terrorism, or “insurrection,” or our neighbors who think differently than us, the more likely we are to surrender our liberties. This makes us easier to manipulate and control. Here’s an example: Our Federal bureaucracy used 9/11—a legitimately tragic event—as an

Fauci’s Final Flip-Flop of 2021

It’s been a heck of a year, hasn’t it? Between the back-and-forth on whether masks are effective, whether the latest injectable pharmaceuticals are worth the risk, whether kids should be quarantined/masked/vaccinated, or whether government “stimulus” helps the economy…If you trust the government, you’re suffering all kinds of whiplash. As for those of us who don’t trust the government, the words “I told you so” are nearly impossible not to scream into the void. This is, of course, because we have been brutally gaslit. Anyone skeptical of lockdowns, mandates, and the medical bureaucracy has been painted as a selfish, murderous hack for nearly two years. Myself included. And now, we must listen to Dr. Fauci discover cost-benefit analysis in real-time! This week, “America’s Doctor” (that is, ahem, sarcasm) and the CDC reversed their policy on 14-day quarantines. Citing the psychological damage of extended isolation, a new recommendation now instructs us to quarantine

The Plot to Push Parents Out of Education

Chances are, you’ve already heard about the 1619 Project. If not, a brief refresher… Created by Nikole Hannah-Jones, an activist and New York Times columnist, the project is a series of essays aiming to reframe America through the lens of race. With the help of the media and academic elite, it is a concerted effort to reframe Capitalism as evil, freedom as malicious, and skin tone as a foolproof indicator of one’s place on the oppressed/oppressor spectrum. And as you may know, it’s already creeping into classrooms in the form of Critical Race Theory. This past Sunday, as millions gathered to celebrate the Holidays with loved ones, Hannah-Jones made an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press. As the interview turned to education, the recent Virginia Governor’s race was brought up by host Chuck Todd. He and Hannah-Jones discussed Terry McAuliffe’s infamous blunder, in which he claimed, “I don’t think parents
