"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."

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. (And to attend as a virtual student, click here.)

GM Car Coffins

GM has experienced some bad press, because they manufacture death traps. They paid back $40 billion on a $50 billion loan from the American taxpayer, netting $10 billion, and what do they do: build rolling mechanical coffins.

So the announcement that GM has issued another 6 recalls, as reported in this video, is not a surprise.   Read more »

The Hungry Russian Bear

In the sky above eastern Ukraine, a surface-to-air missile was launched, and it destroyed a Malaysian civilian airliner. The dastardly deed killed – rather, murdered ---298 people. It appears the missile and launcher were Russian. The individuals shooting down the plane were so-called “Russian backed separatists” in Ukraine. Apparently the crash, which is a crime scene on the ground, is controlled by pro-Russian sympathizers, and it has been compromised by unknown malcontents.

It seems to me the Russian emperor Putin--- the Napoleon of Siberia-- has his pitiful, complicit fingerprints all over the Lusitania-type incident.

On Heels of House Vote against Trafficking, 63 Members of Congress Urge Attorney General Holder to Crack Down On Buyers

WASHINGTON, DC—This week the House of Representatives sent a clear, bipartisan message that America’s children are not for sale by passing a number of bills dealing with child trafficking. However, not a single one of those bills deals with the people who buy children for sex. And during a recent nationwide operation targeting sex trafficking, no buyers of underage children were arrested. While those bills, and the sting, are all necessary and should be fully supported, the root of the problem cannot be addressed until both

Lois Lerner backup tapes found

Studying Liberals as long as I have, I have learned quite well the smell of a RAT! The Lois Lerner backup tapes have been found. I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that her emails were never lost. So did they use this time to scrub them? Possibly. I think they have just decided who’s going down, and the calls have been made. One more trial balloon before the IRS starts chopping heads.   Read more »
