  • Government Hypocrisy, but I repeat myself

    Obama, Holder and state attorneys general take banks to the cleaners and don’t even mention government complicity in the housing crisis. The leaders of the Fed, Fannie, and Freddie along with Barney Frank are the ones who should be in jail for this crisis. I guess it too much to…

  • Heritage Foundation notes the religious anger over Obama’s attack on Catholics

    The Heritage Foundation notes here the growing anger expressed by religious groups over Obamacare regulations that violate the First Amendment protection of religious freedom. I am happy to say that my church, Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, has joined the fight. It is a rare moment indeed when faith denominations…

  • If this is not graft, I don’t know what is…

    The entire post from Cafe Hayek follows. If what is legal becomes the norm rather than what is moral, we are all going to be very poor. The names of these people should be on the front page of the Washington Post every day until election day and their constituents…

  • States restrict political speech to protect governmental power

    George Will once again bangs the drum against restrictions on political speech, this time at the state level. Last October, Galassini became annoyed — like many Ron Paul supporters, she is easily annoyed by government — about the city’s plan to augment its spending with a $29.6 million…

  • Obama to Catholics, “Get out of the charity businss or else….”

    This is a great NYT column by Ross Douthat. (HT: Cafe Hayek) But sometimes the state goes further. Not content with crowding out alternative forms of common effort, it presents its rivals an impossible choice: Play by our rules, even if it means violating the moral ideals that inspired…

  • Why do Progressives want to destroy the Constitution?

    In his latest column,  George Will explains why the Progressives want to destroy the Constitution. Yearnings for a command society were common and respectable then [1930s]. Commonweal, a magazine for liberal Catholics, said that Roosevelt should have “the powers of a virtual dictatorship to reorganize the government.” Walter Lippmann,…

  • My letter to German Life Magazine

    Dear German Life Editor, Your article about solar and wind energy in Germany (February/March 2012) misinforms your readers because it leaves out important information. Like the United States, the German government is forcing taxpayers and electricity ratepayers to subsidize this industry. Der Spiegel recently reported that solar subsidies have topped…
