Governments and religions should be measured by peace by Mark Ludetke Governments should be measured by the extent to which they limit aggression and promote peace, not by their form. The more aggression and violence employed by a state, the worse it is. The more governments reject aggression and promote peace, the better. Taxes, regulations, […]

A target-rich environment for mass murderers and politicians Mark Leudtke Once again, we mourn the dead in the wake of spectacular government failure, this time in Orlando. But politicians don’t mourn. Like serial killers, politicians tend to be psychopaths. Even government’s Smithsonian Magazine admits, “… you don’t have to be an ax-wielding murderer to possess […]

Same old story Mark Luedtke Dayton’s rulers have been saying the same prevarications about improving Dayton’s economy for 60 years while the city continually declines. They refuse to acknowledge crony socialism doesn’t work. It doesn’t work because it can’t work, but it makes them rich and powerful. You can’t steal money from productive people, waste […]

Happy Memorial Delay from TSA Mark Luedtke TSA recently exploded into the news again with extraordinary wait times at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. Travelers were advised to show up three hours early to avoid missing flights. In typical socialist fashion, TSA blamed personnel shortages and budget cuts for the delay.

Never trust socialist water Mark Luedtke Two incongruous stories appeared in the Dayton Daily News today, the day I’m writing. First was a story about the 20th annual Dayton Children’s Water Festival. I read the DDN headlines every day, and I love festivals, but I’d never heard of the Dayton Children’s Water Festival. I expected […]

Electric Comet theory confirmed But dirty snowball theory plows on By Marck Luedtke The a any scientific theory is its predictive ability. If observations match predictions, the theory is good and should be developed further. If even one observation fails to match, the theory is falsified and must be modified. If observation after observation fails to […]

War for the dollar By Mark Luedtke Pat Buchanan is confused by U.S. foreign aggression. “And America is beginning to buckle under the weight of its global obligations,” he wrote. “And as we have no claim to rocks or reefs in the South China Sea—Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, Brunei and the Philippines do—why is this our […]

Another Clinton whitewash Mark Luedtke When people mistakenly believe government works in the interest of the people, they are often surprised and frustrated when it doesn’t. They attribute government’s failures to incompetence instead of reevaluating their viewpoint. Fox News Contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano is going through that right now trying to understand why Hillary Clinton […]

The stupidest war Mark Luedtke At least so far, the Syrian war has to be our rulers’ stupidest war ever. Several recent reports highlight nobody knows who’s on whose side. Aranews.net reports, “Local activists confirmed that a number of Islamist factions, backed by Turkish artillery shelling, were able to deter an SDF-led offensive on their […]

Sham democracy By Mark Luedtke New York Times writer Jeremy W. Peters might soon be looking for work after timidly telling the truth about the US political system. “When it comes to nominating presidential candidates, it turns out the world’s foremost democracy is not so purely democratic,” he wrote. That’s an understatement. Anybody surprised by […]

Communism versus capitalism Obama and Clinton, see no difference By Mark Luedtke Anybody who paid attention knew President Obama was pro-communist when he was only a freshman senator from Illinois who audaciously decided to run for president. The evidence was overwhelming and available to anybody willing to learn, although ignored by the mainstream media. And […]

Free Maria Sharapova Mark Luedtke Whenever you think things can’t get more stupid, you are mistaken. They can always get stupider. Just ask Maria Sharapova.

Reputation versus regulation One is beneficial, the other counterproductive Mark Luedtke You’ve probably heard of Comcast Corporation. It’s a corporate giant. Wikipedia describes its scope: “Comcast Corporation, formerly registered as Comcast Holdings, is an American multinational mass media company and is the largest broadcasting and largest cable company in the world by revenue.

Bankers gone wild By Mark Luedtke After nearly a decade of ZIRP (zero interest rate policy), Janet Yellen’s Federal Reserve (Fed) is considering NIRP (negative interest rate policy). This literal downward spiral orchestrated by our rulers is the major cause of the world economy’s downward spiral. Interest rates are a price like any other. In […]
