    That's one of the dumbest things I've read lately. As bad as the Fed is, letting the government control the money supply is way worse. I'd argue that the main reason the Fed has been too easy has been influence from the executive branch. The writer is arguing that what we need is MORE printing and borrowing??? That's not what causes economic growth. It's savings and investment. What we need is much less government spending and higher (market set) rates so that people will save and businesses can invest. If the government had control of the printing press they'd hyperinflate the dollar out of existence within a short period of time.

    Your source lists 21 people, not 138. And why are there quotes around those words? Who in the world are they quoting? They don't even give a source. Furthermore, your 138 lumps together convictions with investigations? Being investigated is the same as being convicted?

    It's healthy if you're a baby cow. Just like human breast milk is healthy for a baby. But contrary to what we've been indoctrinated to believe, there is absolutely no need to drink cow breastmilk, and tons of reasons not to. Any nutrients that you want to get from it, you can get in other sources, minus the hormones, antibiotics, as well as components that increase the risk of certain types of cancer. Plus, it causes inflammation, phlegm, and for a lot of people, other health issues. For crying out loud, something like 75% of the worlds population cannot drink milk. If it truly was a healthy food for humans, then do you really think that 3/4ths of the worlds population wouldn't be able to consume it? Plus, every time you drink milk you are supporting taking a calf away from his mother. I know that most of you guys don't care about that, but it needs to be said. You support stealing a baby and the milk that was supposed to be for that baby, which causes continual distress and to both the mother and the calf. And that's just the beginning of it, the cruelty continues from that point on. Since you don't need it for your health, and since it absolutely is not as healthy as we've been told, quite the opposite… And since with every glass of milk you are supporting cruelty, why do it? Why do it when there are alternatives that are healthier and taste better? Without the pus, without the hormones, without the misery. Thankfully, the dairy industry is slowly dying, as more and more people are realizing the truth.

    I've said this before but I'll say it again. I find it a little too "coincidental" that as more and more people are ditching dairy, we are now seeing more "studies" finding that dairy is healthy, fat and lard and things like that are great for you, yada yada yada. It is a fact that the government subsidizes the dairy industry, and it appears that the organization that funded this study is a government organizationÖSo in light of that, and in light of the fact that the dairy industry is slowly dying, I don't give this "research" much weight. But one thing is for damn sure... People love hearing good things about their bad habits. :D

    "Nearly impossible." Yeah, it's probably nearly impossible to split the atom, fly to the moon, or run a sub 4 minute mile.

    The examples are historical and present day. If you have never heard of electric utility deregulation, then you must be from the past. You did not even bother to read the article. Neg rep for game playing, fake "supporting member."

    No. There is this pervasive idea that large scale operations must be public utilities. History and present day reality contradict that. It's not an either/or proposition. Excerpts from Mises' The Myth of Natural Monopoly:

    Yes, really. Progs decry segregation in private settings, so you base your dislike on a different principle. I am 100% sure that you are paid. And I don't say anything about a person unless I am 100% sure. Not 99%. Not 99.9%. Not 99.99%. 100%.

    I'm guilty. I skipped the video at first but went back and watched the beginning of it. The over the top headline "Congress Steps In To Shut Down InfoWars" is not accurate but it still seems like a 1st amendment violation. For anyone who doesn't want to watch the video, congress was specifically threatening Facebook to remove InfoWars from its website. The 1st amendment says "Congress shall make no law Ö" but in this case Congress is making verbal threats. To me that's the same thing. In a way it's even worse because if they pass a law at least you have something concrete to fight against. This is a verbal threat to a private company. It's hard to fight something like that.

    Is there a source other than Infowars that says Infowars is getting shut down?

    Yeah you're right, about the only the media supported Trump was when he launched missile strikes at Syria(I think). That really surprised me that the media liked that. I think another reason liberal art majors tend to be "liberal" is that you have to think things thru a little more to understand why capitalism works. It can be a little counter-intuitive that the best way to help poor people is to let the rich people keep their money, not take it and give it to the poor.

    I agree that ratings are the main driver, and controversy drives ratings, but I'm ok with that. What bothers me is that, for the most part, the media has a very strong liberal bias. For example if you were to see a show on CNN about the minimum wage, it would be "How Much Should We Raise the Minimum Wage?" One side would argue we need to raise to $20 an hour and the "opposing" viewpoint is that we need to only raise it to $10 an hour. The idea of eliminating it would be the furthest thing from their minds. My theory is that on average liberal arts majors like journalism tend to be socialist while most technical people tend to be more libertarian.

    I agree. As I've said many times the SIZE of government, measured by total spending, is by far the biggest problem we have, at least in my opinion.

    Isaac Bashevis Singer has some good quotes. This one is my favorite. (I think I even used it as my sig at one time) "When a human being kills an animal for food, he is neglecting his own hunger for justice. Man prays for mercy, but is unwilling to extend it to others. Why then should man expect mercy from God? It is unfair to expect something that you are not willing to give."

    My point on Trump Derangement Syndrome working both ways is that you have people that are deranged against Trump and people that are deranged for Trump. I feel like I'm one of the few who has escaped TDS since I'm my posts tend to be 50-50, sometimes I'll defend Trump sometimes I'll trash him. Well maybe it's 60-40, I tend to trash him a little more than I defend him.
