Matt Riddly explains that The poor are carrying the cost of today’s climate policies
They may be right; we will see. But, today, we are deliberately causing suffering in partly futile efforts to stop something that is currently doing more good than harm, mostly to poor people.
Poor, pathetic Hillary. It’s really sad.
“The only way Congress can give one American a dollar is to use threats, intimidation and coercion to confiscate that dollar from another American. Congress forcibly uses one American to serve the purposes of another American. We might ask ourselves: What standard of morality justifies the forcible use of one American to serve the purposes of another American? By the way, the forcible use of one person to serve the purposes of another is a fairly good working definition of slavery.”
Because “green energy” is only profitable with government incentives, it naturally follows that “perverse incentives” result.

As Matt Riddly keeps saying, “green energy” takes from the poor and gives to the super rich.
Richard Epstein makes the thoroughly reasonable suggestion that President Trump should resign.
“But it is time for cooler heads in the Republican party to have a heart-to-heart with a stubborn President Trump, to create the needed political momentum for him to leave office—for the good of his party, and, most importantly, for the good of the nation.”
You know how annoying it can be to have a tune suck in your head? For the last 24 hours, my brain has been playing the theme to Silverado.
It’s been AWESOME!
Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell think they are: https://www.creators.com/read/walter-williams/07/17/western-values-are-superior
I am inclined to agree.
Young Christopher Machold has trouble understanding the English language (and, perhaps all language) when he accuses the NRA of using language in a “frightening way.” The Frightening Way the NRA Just Co-Opted the Term “Hate Speech”
When the lines of these categories are blurred and our understanding of what constitutes violence is so contorted, it becomes possible to unironically argue that the answer to speech you don’t like is hurting people.
It’s shocking that he makes the same case that the video makes that he is attempting to refute. He, like so many of his generation, confusedly assumes that somehow the video is a call for violence. If the young man understood English, he would see that the video makes the very case against violence that he mistakenly makes against his malformed idea of what the the video communicates.
The fact that young Christopher Machol does not like the NRA does not mean that the NRA constitutes a call to violence. If young Christopher understood language, he might understand that the natural right to be armed (protected by the Second Amendment) is a safeguard against violence.
The road to poverty is paved with good intentions.
Minimum wage version:
Watch “Go To Where The Light Is: Escaping North Korea — Yeonmi Park” on YouTube
What she escaped from is Socialism. What she escaped to is Freedom. Socialism is antifreedom. Why any person would desire to inflict Socialism on themselves, their neighbors, their children is something I cannot understand.
Price controls – both price ceilings and price floors – reduce the quantities of price-controlled goods and services that consumers actually get.
Don Boudreaux explains why Price Controls destroy productivity. What is true of artificially low prices (price ceilings) and artificially high costs (minimum wages) are so bad for everyone – not just business.
On Jan. 24, 2017, PBS aired a two-hour special on Rachel Carson, the mother of the environmental movement. Although the program crossed the line from biography to hagiography, in Carson’s case, the unbridled praise was well deserved – with one exception.
Millions Died Thanks to the Mother of Environmentalism
