Biden is in. Brace for impact…

Well, here we go. Today marks the inauguration of Joe Biden as president — and a federal government controlled by Democrats in both chambers of Congress. Try to imagine what might happen over the next few years. That imagination is more nightmare than dream. Granted, things haven’t been peachy in recent years; while Trump did some impressive things, we also saw massive, wasteful stimuli, flooding the economy with trillions of new dollars, ever-ballooning national debt, and more. But Biden’s administration will undoubtedly be worse, if for no other reason than that socialists are economically ignorant and willfully so. After all, it was AOC who said “It’s more important to be morally right than factually correct.” And how might this economic ignorance look in the months and years to come? Here’s one example: Biden’s team aims to be the “first administration ever to construct economic policy around issues like race, gender

Big City Politicians Call for An End to the Shutdown?

For the past year, mayors of big cities have been calling for extreme shutdowns and mask mandates. So it came as a surprise to all of us when those same mayors began to call for an end to the shutdown over the weekend. Mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, called for bars and restaurants to be opened “as quickly as possible” while the Mayor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, called the shutdowns unsustainable and called for New York City to be opened as soon as possible. These same mayors were calling for the shutdowns to continue less than a month ago. And recent numbers have shown a spike in COVID-19 cases—so what has changed? With this week’s inauguration, one can only assume the worst in the sudden change of hearts in these big-government politicians, but it really doesn’t matter. What matters is that politicians believe that they have the power to demand

Why is the Government Proud of its Mistakes?

One of the things unique to government is the fact that they publicly and proudly celebrate their failures. In a tweet last week, the FDA celebrated the 10 year anniversary of FSMA, a law which was signed by President Obama and gave the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) more power. As we all know, it’s always a good thing when random ABC bureaucrats get more power over people’s lives. *eyeroll* The truth is, all FSMA does is make the lives of consumers harder and virtually nothing to reduce the risks of food-borne illnesses. FSMA created a whole slew of extra and unnecessary verifications and certifications that increase the price to produce and import food in the United States. Before FSMA was implemented, the CDC stated that damaged food caused about 48 million illnesses, 128,000 hospitalizations, and 3,000 deaths each year. Today, those numbers look almost identical. So the government signed a useless

Do We Have to Cancel Everyone?

Even in the midst of all the chaos of the past week, cancel culture has found time to rear its ugly head. Tech, social media, and publishing companies have started to censor conservatives activists, politicians, and even the President. These tech companies feel like it is their responsibility to silence these voices so incidences like the Capitol Hill riots do not happen again. Even the New York Times quoted a professor that found the recent censorship disturbing. “I want a wide range of ideas, even those I loathe, to be heard, and I think Twitter especially holds a concerning degree of power over public discourse,” said Gregory P. Magarian, a law professor at Washington University in St. Louis.” The publisher was free to make that decision, legal experts said, but that does not mean it was the right one. And that is what valuing free speech and a marketplace of ideas

#BigGovernmentMadeMe

If anyone would like to know what kids are being taught in schools, the first place to look is Tik Tok, and some of the most recent trends on the platform have had me reaching for Tuttle Twins materials. Recently, the social media platform has been trending with the hashtag #RetailMadeMe where users told stories about various retail jobs they have worked. In the videos, they talk about how the retail stores made them throw out perfectly good items that were slightly damaged instead of donating them. In most of the comments and the videos, the former retail workers blame capitalism. It seems like every time we turn around, a new ailment in society is being blamed on capitalism. However, capitalism is just the free exchange of goods and services. In a free-market society, there is little to no advantage to throwing away these goods instead of donating them useless
