Theft replaces profits Mark Luedtke In his new book about Dayton’s great innovators, “Dayton’s Children,” Mark Martel shows some things never change. Angered at Dayton government’s system of patronage, poor schools and having to pay bribes to get valuable work accomplished, John Patterson confronted his obstructers. “He convoked a meeting of a thousand local leaders, […]

Travesty in the jungle By Mark Luedtke It’s tough being a fan of a small market sports team. Top free agents gravitate toward large markets. They get less TV coverage and, therefore, less TV money. But the most frustrating aspect is the calls tend to go their way. This is such a well-known phenomenon in […]

Price inflation, crash or both Mark Luedtke By all measures the world economy is grinding to a halt, and while government’s propagandists claim the US economy is growing, indicators say otherwise.

The government is an armed gang Mark Luedtke Imagine a gang of armed men showed up at your house and stole money from you. Suppose they went door to door and stole money from your neighbors and everybody else. Naturally, they would spend a percentage of that money on themselves. They would live large, buying […]

Year in Review: 2015 Mark Luedtke Perpetual wars dominated the 2015 news. President Obama extended the Afghan war, but the scariest new development was U.S. and NATO threats against Russia on multiple fronts. The war in Syria garnered the most coverage.

Democracy in name, oligarchy in reality Mark Luedtke In his polemic “Democracy, The God That Failed,” Hans-Hermann Hoppe argued, contrary to popular thought, democracy is a worse system of government than monarchy, which is worse than government ordered by natural rights. One of the reasons is the temporary duration of power in a democracy. Monarchs […]

Starting WWIII in Syria NATO ally Turkey shoots down Russian fighter plane By Mark Luedtke I’m skeptical of the criticism of teaching school children to duck and cover during a nuclear attack. Critics act like all schools will automatically be vaporized, but they’re wrong. Nobody knows how far away a nuclear blast might occur, and […]

Devastating government failure Mark Luedtke Middle Eastern terrorists regularly execute spectacular attacks against the U.S. or its allies. Trillions of dollars stolen for wars and spying since 9/11 can’t prevent them. ISIS-connected terrorists recently killed 130 in Paris. President Obama claimed ISIS was the JV squad and a day before the attacks declared ISIS is […]

<h2>Be careful what you wish for Black football players oust leftists at Mizzou </h2> <em>By Mark Luedtke</em> Hoping to promote a Lenin-style revolution, radical leftists have long agitated young people to protest in the streets for any perceived slight.

City of zombies Government subsidizes failed businesses causing stagnation and decay Mark Luedtke It saddened me to see Beckett Paper Mill in Hamilton recently burned down.

To revolt or not to revolt Republican rulers needn’t fear an insurrection By Mark Luedtke I need more popcorn. The petty spats between moderators of the mainstream media—all Democrats—and Republican candidates during debates are hilarious. It’s as if they don’t all agree on outrageous spending, taxes, welfare and warfare, but they do. The differences between […]

Comet theory crashes By Mark Luedtke It’s hard to imagine how scientists can be as wrong as they were about Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko (67P) and still be considered experts. The Rosetta mission to the comet was a brilliant engineering success, but the science was an equally dismal failure. Scientists were wrong about everything. The best measure […]

War by any other name… Mark Luedtke President Obama has a problem. The Commander and Chief of Lies can’t explain why a U.S. soldier died in a combat mission in Iraq since he claims there are no U.S. combat troops fighting in Iraq. His concern is not for the unnecessary tragedy caused by him starting […]

The Daily Mail reports on a letter from German social workers. “The letter says [a German refugee] camp, far from being a peaceful haven for those fleeing war, is a dangerous melting-pot, where there have been ‘numerous rapes […]
