"An individual's right to protect him or her self should not be limited to the home, as anyone who has been the victim of a crime in a public place can attest. The recent decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals was the right one: individuals should not have to meet an arbitrary standard and prove a need to protect themselves in order to receive a concealed carry permit."

35 year USPS employee called a “Terrorist”

If you work for a government entity, you are being paid to look the other way. Don’t dare expose what’s really happening in a government entity, or you will be railroaded.

When a person is hired by a government entity, the government expects more loyalty than La Cosa Nostra…the Mafia.   Read more »

Poe Statement On NFL’S “Punishment” For RB Ray Rice

Recently, a video emerged of Ray Rice, a Baltimore Ravens’ running back, dragging his unconscious then-fiancée out of an elevator after allegedly punching her in the face several times. He was charged with third-degree aggravated assault; however, the prosecutors later dropped the charge after a plea deal was reached. The NFL’s response? A pathetic two game suspension. The league has harsher punishments for “offenses” such as eating unapproved foods or taking fertility drugs without prior approval.   Read more »

Suing the President for Executive Overreach

Remember when President Obama unilaterally delayed Obamacare’s employer mandate without Congressional approval – twice? Or when he tried to grossly expand EPA’s authority? How about when he told us all he needs to push his own liberal agenda without Congress is a pen and a phone? What I have been hearing from you in West Texas is that the President’s abusing his authority, and he’s taking our country in the wrong direction. I agree. I’m especially worried about his unilateral actions to bypass Congress – and bypass the U.S. Constitution.   Read more »

Texas Rep. David Simpson attacked at Town Hall meeting

It seems conservative State Rep. David Simpson who represents the people of District 7 in East Texas has caused some tempers to flare. He held a Town Hall meeting on July 22, 2014 after his seven day family vacation along the Texas-Mexico border. His detailed account is amazing and includes aerial views to show the Rio Grande winding in and out of Mexico and the complexities of securing the Texas-Mexico border. He explained that the border runs in the deepest part of the Rio Grande making it virtually impossible to build a fence there.   Read more »

Job-Luring Funds Go Under the Microscope at the Texas Capitol

The special Texas House committee appointed by Speaker Joe Straus to scrutinize Gov. Perry’s job-luring pots of money – chiefly the Texas Enterprise Fund – got down to work last Wednesday. In its first hearing, the House Select Committee on Economic Development Incentives listened to expert witnesses for and against the incentives that were called everything from “interstate job piracy” to essential “tools in the toolbox” for continuation of the state’s dynamic economic growth.

Chair of the committee, Rep. Angie Chen Button, R-Richardson, stressed that while Texas has been a dominant

My Opening Talk at Mises University 2014

The Mises Institute’s week-long Mises University instructional program for students was the most significant academic event of my life as a student when I first attended it in 1993. It’s still going strong even today, and last night, for the second year in a row, I delivered the opening talk. The title I was given was “The Role of Austrian Economics in the Liberty Movement.” If you enjoy the talk and want to learn more about Austrian economics, check out my LearnAustrianEconomics.com resource.
