There is but one sound economic theory. That theory states you must save for a rainy day and only spend what you have. Credit is bad. Saying anything different is akin to an accountant telling you to "create overhead" to lower taxes. Think about that. Spend a grand, and if you are in the 25% tax bracket you save $250 on your taxes. Hmm, sounds like you lost $750, unless the expenditure could have made you money...
Washington DC is the only place I know of where being public with the fact that you were paid off makes it legal. ABC Company gave the local politician $3 million in campaign funding. It's all good because we told you about it.
There are over 4000 Federal Laws according to the Independence Institute. This doesn't include Tax Code, State Law or Agency mandates (OSHA, DOE, ATFE, EPA, Etc). There must have been blood in the streets 75 years ago when there were half as many. But we are law abiding citizens.. I think...
We need more regulation of the Finance industry so they don't take advantage of "main street" anymore. Because the laws against everything else have COMPLETELY stopped all other crime, and antitrust doesn't already exist.
Prior to the 1970's, the US government was the biggest buyer of .22 rifle shells. They sent them to public schools for their marksmanship programs. Hmmmm...
The removal of guns from the citizens of Australia has done absolutely nothing to the crime rate of that country. Gun or otherwise.
I hit a deer tonight on the way home. I live out in the Middle of the sticks where the hoot owls screw the chickens for something to do, and I hit the thing in the middle of Ankeny (midsized Iowa town). All I remember thinking is "Man, he is hauling ass. Nice Rack" Then BANG. I hit him with the family car. I was actually thinking "Nice Rack" at the point of impact. What's wrong with me?
I'll get revenge in a few weeks when the season opens.... Until next time
