Laissez-Faire Government (Issue 54)

The happenings between the three presidential candidates is like a ping-pong game. First, it’s one attacking, then the others attacking each other back.

The news is dominated by who’s saying what about each other–the remarks, criticism, and response—over and over in a squirrel cage type syndrome.
 
The latest is the attack on Obama regarding his remarks about Americans being bitter and frustrated, filled with anger and who will “wind up voting on issues like guns and the right to bear arms,” further saying, “people don’t vote for economic issues because they don’t expect anyone is going to help them.” Then Hillary made an issue out of this in her speeches, criticizing his remarks. Then both wind up yelling elicit remarks at one another.

Unthinking, Tail Covering Bureaucrats (Issue 53)

I’m not a fan of political intervention into the lives of self-responsible citizens. I’m for self-responsibility. However, political government has its fingers in rules, regulations, and policies that affect every phase of our lives. From health, food, clothing and shelter, to education, transportation, communication, and all areas of private property, we are ruled, regulated and taxed.
 
Even free speech has been restricted and condemned in so many areas of our lives, we are required to censor what we say, or the government will do it for us and then punish us. All of this has been taking place over a period of time, continually getting worse not better.

Global Poverty Act, Costing Americans $845 Billion (Issue 52)

Because most Americans are not dishonest con artists, we do not always remember political government is a con game.

I for one have to stop and remind myself of this fact on a regular basis as I hear and read what is going on in Washington and with the political candidates running for President.

The con game is simple—keep your eye on this ball while we are doing something else.

Talk Radio And The Governor Of Georgia (Issue 51)

A number of years ago there was an Atlanta radio station called WRNG. I doubt it’s still in existence, but for several years they had a four-hour program on Sunday morning called  “Open Line,” as I recall.
 
The president of a college I attended would frequently come through Atlanta on his way home from teaching executive sessions in South Carolina. He would regularly appear as a guest on the four-hour program. Living in Atlanta, he would sometimes ask me to guest co-host with him.
