CNN had some egregious 'reporting' recently. This time it is screaming, belligerently, about a meeting between EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, and Tom Collier, the CEO of the major mining company, Pebble Partnership.
The NFL is trending on just about every news source in America. Ever since Donald Trump condemned NFL players’ protesting during the national anthem, Earth has been stuck in a perpetual solar eclipse and chunks of the sky have begun falling on anyone using a selfie stick. Okay, maybe that is a little over dramatic. But the debate is awful.
The first two laws that comrade Sanders would repeal if given the chance? The law of scarcity and the law of supply and demand. Bernie ignores these basic concepts. Humanity has limited resources leaving us with the problem of distributing those resources among individuals. The government can try - and fail - to distribute those resources for us or the market can distribute do it based on the choices individuals make. Every government that has tried to distribute resources for the people has failed - e.g., the Soviet Union and Venezuela. Every government that has allowed the market to distribute resource based on the choices of individuals has thrived - e.g., Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Hong Kong. A few basic inferences can be made using Bernie's two least favorite laws that would help him better understand the consequences of a single-payer healthcare system.
As we conclude this month that marked the sixteenth anniversary of September 11th, we must carry with us the lesson that the attack brought to our collective quest for freedom. Terrorism is a threat we all fear. While we must try to prevent American citizens from being murdered by terrorists, we must also guard against the eroding of our rights. The USA Patriot Act has most affected freedom at home. In memory of the victims of 9/11, we should consider the lessons that the attacks and the fallout taught us about the whimsical nature of freedom.
