Land Ho!

Savvy investors – having realized that the stock market is not necessarily the way to generate terrific riches – are going back to the land. The dominant social theme might be, “Who can trust these paper products? Give us tangible, productive investments that we can run through our fingers! Dirt is a deal.”

Does Vick Deserve Redemption?

We've watched the Michael Vick story unfold with some fascination. It tends to confirm what we think about sports reporters in general, that they exaggerate every single wrongheaded characteristic of mainstream reporters. This stands to reason after all; it takes a certain kind of ambition and personality to spend one's life "reporting" about the success and failures of large men and muscular women playing games. The dominant sub theme might be, "Sports reflects the glory and tragedy of life

FBI's broad surveillance powers result in abuse

Yet another example of how our government abuses the broad, sweeping powers we give it:

From Yahoo:
WASHINGTON – The FBI gave inaccurate information to Congress and the public when it claimed a possible terrorism link to justify surveilling an anti-war rally in Pittsburgh, the Justice Department’s inspector general said Monday in a report on the bureau’s scrutiny of domestic activist groups.

As Election Nears – This One Deserves A Rewind

It’s time for some campaignin’…entertaining to be sure, but I think it’s worth a look beyond the entertainment value. This video is funny because it contains truth. The trouble is, the truth in political jokes are on us…the voters. How DID we end up with those two candidates? It’s more than a little freaky that the “we spend billions” already needs to be changed to “trillions”. Are we going to keep going down this road? Hopefully something has CHANGED…hmm…don’t think that was the change President Obama was looking for. Ironically maybe he is the change we were seeking…

Congratulations to Debra Medina named a Top Influential Texan

Many of us were so pleased to learn that Debra had been named as one of the Top Influential Texans in the Campaigns and Elections sections of Politics magazine which is a national publication. Although she was pretty far down on the list (37 out of 50 listed) we did make it. Also in the group she was in, were Tom Paulkin, Tom Craddick and David Barton. Of course Debra’s comments were that it really should have said WeTexans instead, but I think we all understand that that was what it meant. But that is just Debra – and that is one of the things that I love about her. Debra has always said that she is just the message carrier for the people in this organization and that it is us who have the influence. What other person do you know who is so willing to drag herself all over Texas and fight for our cause of freedom who is so unassuming? Continue reading

Property Rights and Law

Some have been demeaning the right to private property – which is very closely linked to America's political tradition and if sufficiently discredited would also help destroy the country – because such a right is supposedly created by a legal system. If so, then of course, this right has no foundation apart from a decision by lawmakers. It rests on quicksand, in short!

The Rise of Iran

Is it jaw-jaw rather than war-war with Iran? Portions of the US military industrial complex obviously want war-war, but the pushback from other US military, intelligence and civilian sectors seem to mitigate against it. We remember when it seemed certain that the Bush administration was mustering support among DC elites for a quick and "surgical" strike against Iran. It was a close thing in our opinion, but it didn't happen.

Markets Reject EU Austerity?

The UK Telegraph remains a mainstream anomaly; articles by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard often do not buttress the dominant social themes that the power elite is trying to promote. On the other hand, Evans-Pritchard is no free-market monetarist. He seems to believe in paper-money and central banking and does not necessarily advocate a money metals standard. Thus, his non-thematic views on the EU and the euro provide him with a credibility that burnishes the unfortunate monetary authoritarianism that
