Incompetent Republicans like Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell, the United States Senate Majority Leader, has not passed a single major piece of legislation in the United States Senate.  You have to ask yourself why that is.  He has been in charge for quite some time and he just does not seem to have what it takes to get the job done.  Why not?  Is he is incompetent?  We certainly think so.  He seems to be more of a progressive or just plain incompetent at advancing conservative legislation.

Democrats oppose tax cuts because they oppose freedom.

The Democrat Party is always predictable when it comes to taxes.  (You don't have to subscribe to any of the liberal publications to know what Democrats think about tax cuts: they are opposed.  And they always come up with the same answer: it's for the rich!)    Democrats always oppose lowering taxes, because that would provide more opportunities for millions of individuals.   When tax rates are lowered, people are more free and happier because they are retaining more of their own wealth that they can use for their own purposes.   Democrats oppose this because they would prefer to use the money instead for political purposes, such as rewarding political donors and stoking class warfare by arguing against "tax cuts for the rich."  We live in a decentralized environment, however, and increasingly, we are moving against complex, opaque, and centralized political institutions and moving to a world in which individuals and voluntary organizations yield more and more power.   What do most of these government agencies in Washington DC have to do with our day to day living?  For the vast majority of Americans, these agencies don't have anything to do with day to day life.

The Democrat Party is obsolete.  It does not stand for anything anymore other than aggrandizing more and more power for itself.

Democrats have a reprehensible history that includes slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, the internment of Japanese Americans, and sterilization of "imbeciles," so it comes as no surprise that such a reprehensible political party would also oppose allowing people to be more free by keeping more of their income.   The Democrats do not even argue that tax cuts reduce federal revenue.  At a political debate, candidate Barack Obama opposed tax cuts, even if it increases federal revenue, out of an issue of "fairness."  

Democrats want more people to be enslaved by a boring, unfulfilled life on welfare, where they are given a check to take care of their basic necessities.  However, such people will never be happy.  If you have any doubts about my view on this, check to see how happy people are in Maxine Water's district, which includes some of the poorest parts of Los Angeles.  The main reason why is because people want to be free to pursue their own dreams, and living a life on welfare does not allow you to achieve your dreams.  Instead, it fulfills the dreams of the elitists because it makes them even more important.  If you need politicians to provide you a check for your basic survival, then you no longer are an equal with the politician.  The politician, and the government, literally have the opportunity to control you by dictating many portions of your private life if you wish to continue receiving a government check.   Why would you surrender so much of your authority over your life to people who you do not know, do not love you, do not understand your life, and will never be able to make you happy?  That makes no sense whatsoever.

Hugh Hefner died today.

Hugh Hefner died today. Iconic, famous, and controversial, he merged the art of pictorial representations of naked women and high brow articles in a single magazine. One of a kind... there will never be another like him -- mainly because we live in a different era, one in which such pictures barely raise an eyebrow now, and the publishing era is in a large term secular decline.  IF YOU FOUND THIS MATERIAL informative, please feel free to make a donation through my Patreon account here and click "BECOME A PATRON."

Why is Saudi Arabia allowing women to drive: economics.

Why is Saudi Arabia letting women drive? It's not due to Twitter protests, hashtags, or political opinion in Western countries. None of that matters to the rulers in Saudi Arabia. This is just plain economics: the price of oil is low and there is little evidence to suggest it is going up anytime soon. When oil prices were high, the state could provide generous subsidies thanks to the sale of oil.   That is, the subsidies allowed the state to subsidize a tyrannical system where women could not drive.   (As a side note: absent Western technology, the Saudis would never be able to recover any of the oil). Saudi Arabia will find it impossible to continue this practice with low and possibly lower oil prices. As oil goes lower, I suspect we may find other wonderful developments. So the frackers in America are doing their part for women's rights in far off places like Saudi Arabia. Cheers to frackers!
