The establishment is losing it Mark Luedtke Because people with access to government’s levers of power are typically aligned against us, it’s easy to think of rulers as a monolithic group.

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.

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.

Year in Review: 2015 Mark Luedtke Perpetual wars dominated the 2015 news.
