  • Here we go again
    Tuesday, August 9, 2022 1:21 PM
    This new bill puts in place price controls for some Medicare-provided drugs. The last administration to gloriously fail at price controls was Richard Nixon’s, when he put price controls on everything, causing years of shortages and a decade of serious inflation. Politicians who think the government can fix anything, irrationally think price controls work. Price controls never work and when finally loosed, create unbelievable inflation.

  • Ukraine can’t be beat
    Wednesday, August 3, 2022 6:33 AM
    The leading respondent for our request for help on this current project is in Ukraine. Never mind the war, he needs to earn a living. He proposed a sample of his work for a small fee, then we could negotiate. His sample was very good, so we got down to negotiating his fee for the entire project. He was a very tough negotiator. Forget that bombs are falling all around him, he knows the value of the quality of his work, and he wouldn’t budge.

  • Reality sets in
    Wednesday, July 27, 2022 7:54 AM
    We are told we must get to net zero (carbon dioxide emissions) as soon as possible. OK, so what happens after that? Are all the scientists, engineers, managers and so forth that have put the effort in to getting us there going to go home? Highly doubtful.

  • We have not tamed electricity
    Tuesday, July 19, 2022 7:38 AM
    In the 1980s, I read of the interview of a long-lived thespian who had recently died. The interviewer asked him what the most astounding change in the theater was in his lifetime. Without missing a beat, he said, “electricity.” Now society has accused the generation of electricity for causing climate change and proposes to fix that problem with beer-can-esque generating devices covering once fertile farm fields. It never ends.

  • A cheap life
    Tuesday, July 12, 2022 6:51 AM
    Over the last 108 years, humankind has developed the attitude that life is very cheap. I pick 108 years, for that takes us back to the summer of 1914, when, right about now in that year, the Great War, later called World War I, was just about to start.

  • Assessing the state of the union
    Tuesday, July 5, 2022 11:37 AM
    We are in delicate times, folks. A little slip one way or another in a myriad of important categories can cause significant problems. I am not reminded of the Jimmy Carter era of the 1970s, but, sadly, the 1930s.

  • Contemporary events and the Constitution in light of recent rulings from the Supreme Court
    Tuesday, June 28, 2022 6:45 AM
    It has been a momentous term at the U.S. Supreme Court. It seems that the closer we have gotten to the end of the term (usually the end of June), the more momentous it has become.

  • Let the unbelievers participate in equity
    Tuesday, June 21, 2022 10:04 AM
    Equity vs. Equality. Per Google: “Equality means each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities. Equity recognizes that each person has different circumstances and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome.” In other words, communism.

  • Janet Yellen should resign – and more
    Sunday, June 12, 2022 11:39 AM
    Should Janet Yellen resign? Absolutely – and she should be followed by a parade of others who make a joke of the serious jobs needing done in Washington. Their bridges have fallen down.
