    Good on Trump. Let’s hope he does it right this time.

    ?? What the hell are you talking about? I live in Ohio and my family is in Western PA. The under $50K white people are my crowd. lol Sure, many of them like Trump, but they HATE Hillary! They didn't go to the polls over immigration - they went to make sure that bitch wasn't in the White House. They would have voted for Lucifer if he had a chance to keep her from winning. We don't have immigrants taking our jerbs - we were losing our coal and steel jobs to regulation. Immigration was an issue, but it was way down the list. Top of the list??? Keeping out the Hildabeest. ETA this link: https://www.migrationpolicy.org/programs/data-hub/charts/us-immigrant-population-state-and-county Click on Total in the "Select Country/Region of Origin" box and look at the numbers by state. The states I listed are barely impacted by immigration. If you click into the states, you'll see it's even more localized and the areas most heavily impacted actually went for Hillary.

    So, I must live on the Amash planet, then. I, too, thought Trump did the exact right thing, but masterfully f'd it up. And to make it worse, he looked like a hostage reading his backtracking statement. I thought Ron and Rand were right to give Trump praise for doing the right thing, but they ignored the mistakes he made. Glad to see Amash isn't doing that. You don't go into a press conference looking like Putin's lapdog. You don't let him off the hook for "meddling" in the internal affairs of our country. If anything, you say, "Putin and I discussed ways to get the nations of the world to stop meddling in the affairs of other countries - something that ALL of our intelligence agencies do. Putin says they didn't do it?? Pfft. We ALL do it!" Would he take heat for that statement? Of course. But it's FAAAAAARRRR more accurate and it would prevent this ridiculous "rally 'round our intel community" thing you've got going on. In total, I think this is a big nothing and on the whole, it was a good thing if you take the long view. But it could have been so much better. Kudos to Amash for giving the praise and the concern.

    So, I would argue that the media have a very pro-government bias. Most times that appears to be "liberal", but they are also very pro-war. To your secondary point, you are also correct. It is in the fields where you find people who pay no price for being wrong that you find the most pro-government people. In most businesses, if you make bad decisions, you will soon go broke. These people tend to weigh the impacts of their decisions. But in journalism, education, arts, even law and politics, it doesn't matter how wrong you are as long as people are dazzled. You just ask for more. It is that mentality (Sowell called it the unconstrained vision) that figures there are no costs to being wrong - so they always want more government. "Oh, we were wrong about WMD's? Oh well, look what we're talking about this week!"

    Really? Is this what you think? That immigration was such an important issue in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio??? The fact is that Hillary lost more than Trump won. And she most likely would have lost against any Republican candidate. Especially, if they spoke to the blue collar worker, which most of them were doing. As to the media, read what acptulsa said. They have a show to put on. And the best way to get ratings is to have people divided and agitated. That's why every news incident turns into a "controversy" with people lining up on either side. The media's job in the US is to make sure people are pointing the finger at each other instead of the government. Oh sure, they'll get mad at what the other party is doing with their power, but they will never take that power away from government - it's only about getting "the right team" to have the power. It's kinda sad that still, after all we've seen, that even in RPF some are still distracted by this performance art. Seriously, turn on CNN for a 1/2 hour... Look at it with an objective eye. Don't get caught up in the topic - it doesn't matter which topic they're using - pay attention to the message they're selling. They want the public to be riled up against the other party. Same with Fox, MSNBC, local news, social media, major newspapers... And whatever candidate that can draw more interest into that show is the candidate they prefer the most. It doesn't matter if they have an "R" or "D" beside their name, that's irrelevant. They'll get rewarded for how well they can keep people interested in the division show. Government will still grow in one area or the other, and when the next cycle comes up and they find a ratings candidate in the other party, they can pick back up and grow the opposite side of government.

    When you go to the circus, don't get distracted by the clowns. You are still paying attention to the "show" and are losing sight of why that show is being put on.

    Have you not figured this out, yet?? When dealing with media, you need to look at line space or airtime. Those things are in limited supply and are the only things they can use to attract $$. So instead of looking at the words as "positive" or "negative", simply look at where they are spending their resources. Because they are doing it to get a return on their investments. Just like every other industry.

    Uh, Beats them??? You do realize that the media are making a killing off of Trump - just as they expected. He's certainly delivered on his promise to that special interest - the ratings are HUGE! In fact, if you would have measured the in-kind donations by that special interest group, they would have surpassed all other special interest group campaign donations combined. And, he's been paying them back ever since.

    I've been saying this since the whole start of the presidential run. There is really no such thing as "bad press". Trump was given mega press ON PURPOSE. If TPTB had not wanted Trump, he would have been completely ignored- just like Ron Paul.

    I think he really ought to be worried about those extremists (undercover CIA ops) feeling "emboldened" by his rhetoric that will now feel free to create some sort of international incident (false flag) that the media will lay at his feet. Seriously... I know you guys are giving Trump all sorts of praise today, but my take is only Trump could do the right thing and fuck it up so masterfully.

    Yep- Trump does something worthwhile & TPTB jump the shark. But this isn't anything new- their examples are very telling. FDR goaded the Japs into Pearl Harbor so that Americans would go willingly to war; The PA was in the wings waiting to be signed on 911 & the flyers were supposedly Saudis, so we blamed Iran. Expecting something totally anti-freedom to become a law- all because of some decent dialog between 2 men.

    Man, they are really jumping the shark with this. I'll make 2 predictions: Trump ends up with a bounce in support (after a possible temporary slip) There will be some sort of international "incident" - it seems to me like the world intelligence agencies have too much to gain and too little risk in this climate. And the media will use this kerfuffle as the most important factor that caused it.

    In my mind, Rand is giving Trump too much credit. Yes, he did the right thing, but damn the execution was flubbed. Obviously, Rand is justifiably taking the wide view but I don't think he needs to ignore the blunders. Rand would have handled this summit with far more grace.

    So, I'm curious to hear Rand's thoughts now. Obviously, Trump was right to meet with Putin, but his execution was horrible! Now, I'm worried about the next international "incident" caused by the intelligentsia. Seems like some kind of major incident will serve all parties, right about now.

    So now it is treason to come to a civil diplomatic arrangement for coexistence such that we don't have to get into another arms race and, in a moment of something gone horribly wrong, blow each other to Kingdom Come? How is it that we don't hunt these people, cape them out, and feed them to other people we despise as deeply in the hope of poisoning them?

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
Iíve 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
