Several trends in the United States related to home ownership are developing that I find rather startling. Some of those trends have been slow, taking decades to mature, and perhaps have been noticed by many. Other trends are more acute temporally, springing up only over the past few years. These trends have altered the landscape of home ownership, and overall have made home ownership and housing security far more difficult for most Americans. (more…)
It should be obvious to any sober observer that the main problem with black people is black people.
Even though it has been mathematically established that black Americans drain more money from the public cookie jar than they contribute to it, a pesky myth persists that they are somehow being cheated out of their “fair share” of America’s massive wealth. It has become a national article of faith that any possible economic disparities between Bantus and Euros can’t possibly be explained by the fact that intelligence testing consistently confirms that, by and large, blacks are a relatively dimwitted breed.

On the 15th of September, 1938, UK Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain famously flew across the English Channel (overcoming his fear of flying) for the monumental purpose of meeting Adolf Hitler at the Berghof in order to avert the Sudetenland crisis, and hopefully (yet futilely) avoid plunging Europe into a Second World War.

I will preface this by saying that this year, you’re most likely not struck in traffic. We owe a great big “thank you” to the ‘rona for making Earth Day 2020 a rousing success. It’s positively alpine out there!
In normal times, however, it’s highly likely that a majority of you jump into a car in the morning, crawl your way towards a workplace of some kind on a slab of freeway, (more…)
Today being April 15, the much-dreaded “Tax Day” (for our non-American readers, this is the deadline each year when federal income taxes for the previous year must be filed with and paid to the U.S. government’s Internal Revenue Service), I thought it appropriate to call attention to a largely forgotten film that deals with the subject of taxation, and by implication, the larger issues that the question of the federal government’s authority represents: Harry’s War.

I have never met a gambler with an ounce of intelligence, but the prejudice against lotteries is in the category of superstitions, totemism and taboo. Lotteries can harm only the imbeciles who buy tickets, but these imbeciles appear to be wholly in their own right. (more…)
