    As for the logjam, shippers will rediscover the Panama Canal sooner or later. And all the ships which aren't too broad of beam to fit through it will suddenly become more valuable. I like it when California shoots itself in the foot. It works for me.

    If you like the Panhandle, you had better expect--and even woo--company. To invoke the secession clause of the Texas Constitution, you may have no choice but place the referendum before three Oklahoma counties, and significant portions of New Mexico, Kansas and Colorado. There may be no other legal way to do it.

    The reason the U.S. pulled out of the unyielding terrain where empires go to die is because they suddenly decided the Taliban is useful again? That's the sort of fuzzy logic I'd expect from a brain capable of saying, "...has thrown spokes in the wheels of..." Since when do wheels mind spokes? So we're edging closer to middle eastern holocaust and WWIII. Or not. Can't tell anything by this tripe.

    The "economic policy" of freedom was tested a hundred years ago. It worked so well it was called "The Roaring 'Twenties". We could do with another Roaring 'Twenties.

    And that means tariffs--a thieving, backed-by-violence top-down big government action--is the cure for psychotic big government? The cure for too many regulations within the borders is more regulations at the borders? If government is exercising too much power, we have to have a stopgap measure until we can take big, out of control government down a notch that involves government wielding more power, in other words, being ratcheted up a notch? Has government ever made America great? Or did America always enjoy greatness only when government did least? Enough band aids. Sooner or later we're going to address the heart of the actual problem, or be overwhelmed by it. And I'm not sure how much "later" we have left.

    These people are trying to end the BIA. All they want is for Washington to fuck off and leave them alone. And the media and various astroturf like "People Against Fossil Fuels" are trying to usurp them and change their message? Talk about systemic racism. "We are the MSM, and we get to redefine the concerns of your entire ethnicity."

    There may have been one or two other variables at play there. You know. Like hyperinflationary money printing, foreign aid, overregulation, micromismanagement, a few little things.

    Perhaps. But even if that's true, it will never do it as quickly and efficiently as eliminating regulations and taxes. Plus, the cost is, especially under current economic circumstances, extreme economic hardship for almost everyone. https://mises.org/wire/against-trumps-tariffs-0 https://mises.org/wire/how-look-tariffs-1

    Exhibiting your keen economic insight again, I see. Despite your pathological love for them, protectionist tariffs do not ameleorate this situation even the tiniest little bit. Manufacturers didn't move their operations overseas because of a deficiency of tariffs here in the US. In fact, most of the industries concerned enjoyed such tariffs, at least occasionally, before and during their moves overseas, and many continue to enjoy them afterwards. No, inadequate tariffs didn't cause the problem and they won't fix it. Manufaturers moved their operations overseas because here in the US they were burdened by massive overregulation and taxation. Reduce or eliminate those and manufacturing returns. Furthermore, given the current economic situation, with the liklihood of significant price inflation looming, adding the burden of price increases due to tariffs unneccessarily increases the economic hardship we'll all soon be suffering. Pitch your economic illiteracy elsewhere, please.

    Due to nominal rigidity or "price stickiness", electric rates may stay low for longer. Because most electric distribution rates have to be "approved" by utility commissions, they have to build complicated rate cases to raise their rates. That doesn't hold true for all generators or utility co-ops, but it means it'll take awhile for inflation to hit that sector. Now, working in this industry, it concerns me because the costs of materials is rapidly rising and it is becoming harder and harder to get transformers, poles and wires... If major storms come through this winter and the ice damages the lines, utilities will have to operate at HUGE losses which will have to be worked into a future rate case. Not to mention that labor costs are going to skyrocket the next time the annual review process or union contracts come up. Those signs point to LONG restoration times, cuts in preventative maintenance, and political pressure to slash the utility return on equity. In other words, keep that wood burner handy - we're going to need them!

    RFK Jr. popped up on the Liberty Report, and RPI disappeared (and the RFK interview didn't). Now RPI is back and the RFK Jr. episode is gone. Sure looks like a mistake. Are you saying some anonymous Google functionary pulled the plug on the wrong channel on purpose, hoping that would lead to only one episode of RPLR eventually being memory holed instead of the whole channel?

    Overturned? Why is this controlled op site pretending there's something resembling due process? The morons "flipped the switch" on the wrong channel. They banned Ron Paul Institute, while RFK Jr. was on the Liberty Report, and still viewable on GoogToob while RPI was not. I refuse to stand for spin that paints a mistake, and GoogToob's attempt to spare themselves embarrassment over it, as a decision being "overturned" as though there's some kind of appeal process.

    We make food. If we can feed the world (we can and do) but can't feed ourselves, it's time to take our land back from ADM and Monsanto. Don't tell me private property blah blah. Vilsack was Secretary of Ag back when this money printing for corporate welfare got going really good under Obama. Racketeering and theft are no legitimate way to acquire property.

    Who said ANYTHING about the strikes being vaccine related? Are you trying to change the thread subject again?? The government’s insane intervention (takeover) of the economy is doing this. And it’s escalating quickly with every new contract that is coming up. But yeah, vaccines. :rolleyes:

    Granted, I don't watch a lot of media, but are they being kinda silent on the current labor strikes going on?? Like every thing, you can find the stories, but why isn't it making it into the narratives? Or maybe it is and I'm missing it? But, Kellogg, John Deere, Kaiser Permanente, Film Crews, Hospital Workers... There are lots more on the way... Basically, any contract that is coming up is getting held up because of the various reactions to the government's Covid response/inflation/panic. Yet another unforeseen consequence of this insanity. But is the media narrative linking these all together for the purposes of implementing their Marxist paradise??

My personal story (pt2)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:57 AM
Among my many interests was electricity and I decided that I wanted to change how the industry operates. Understanding the free market as I did, I was pissed that the coolest discovery in the history of mankind was being regulated to death by the government. I wanted to change that.

I found a job as a part-time temporary meter reader. My girlfriend went ballistic that I was quitting a salaried job for a part-time temp job, but I had complete confidence in what I was doing. Meter

My personal story (pt 1)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:55 AM
I’ve never used this blog feature before, but since people have wondered (and asked) about my personal story, I figured it was best to do it in here rather than the forums.

It may come across as anecdotal, but I assure you that this same type free market story is working itself out all over the country and the globe. Even in the face or increasing government interference.

I was born in Western PA the third of four boys. When I was still a baby, the second child died
