The Grassroots Are Getting More Organic

Laura Bledsoe wasn't that interested in politics of any kind, least of all conservative politics. The back-to-nature farmer would be considered a bit of a hippie to many traditional Republicans. But Laura's foray into community-supported agriculture has turned her into a Tea Party hero, highlighting a growing alliance between limited-government activists and small organic farmers.

Majority Says Federal Government Threatens Their Rights

So much for a mandate. As President Obama heads into his celebrated, historic and transformational second term, the American people are distinctly distrustful of the government over which he presides.For the first time ever, a majority of the public says that the federal government threatens their personal rights and freedoms. The Pew Research Center found that 53 percent of Americans view the feds as a threat while only 43 percent disagree.

A Trouble for All Seasons

You never want to think that when economic trouble strikes, it's going to hit you. In fact, often times it doesn’t affect you directly because your business is not necessarily in the market segment currently under fire. This has been my family's experience for the majority of my life, at least until the last couple of years.

Love and marriage.  America and apple pie.  Chicken wings and Super Bowl Sunday.Has there ever been a more perfect combination of sports and snacks than the chicken wing/football combination we will experience this weekend?I say, nay.The Obama administration however, has somehow managed to dampen the excitement of this year's Super Bowl, by causing small businesses to panic over chicken wing supply while simultaneously raising market prices to record highs.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Obamacare Individual Mandate

On Wednesday, The Hill reported that the Obama administration had begun to implement the individual mandate at the heart of Obamacare. Noting its unpopularity, rules have been written by the IRS and Department of Health and Human Services that "downplay the scope" of the mandate and emphasize the exemptions. As a curious blogger, I wanted to see for myself the fact sheet that was disseminated.

Remember Lisa Jackson and her secret email name? It appears that Richard Windsor wasn't alone. I know, you're as shocked as I am that others may have used fake email addresses to avoid FOIA requests.

HSBC and the Era of Too Big to Fail

Advocates of extensive government regulation of private markets often argue that such measures are necessary to prevent large companies from abusing their market power for illicit gain. What is seldom highlighted, however is that big government and big business inevitably go hand in hand, and that  it is impossible to support one without supporting the other.

There’s No Such Thing as a Free Launch

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there'd be a shortage of sand." — Milton FriedmanAs President Obama took office in 2009, I sold electronic health records, which track a patient’s medical history by computer instead of by hand. For a couple of decades, companies like mine had helped medical providers save money while they improved their patients’ quality of care. Once we installed and launched EHR software at a doctor’s office or hospital, it was a win for everyone.
