June 30, 2019 - America’s governance problems are a common topic among Americans. But each Fourth of July brings that subject to the fore. Unfortunately, however, much of the discussion and many asserted “solutions” derive from a mistaken approach to government. That is why Independence Day is an excellent time to carefully consider Frédéric Bastiat’s 1848 essay, “Government,” one of the most insightful critiques ever given for understanding the problems that beset governance.

June 28, 2019 - July 4 should be a day of mourning. The rights our ancestors fought for have been taken away.

Over the course of my lifetime there has been a fundamental shift in the attitude of the judiciary toward constitutional rights. I remember when guarding against any diminishing of constitutional rights was considered more important than convicting another criminal. There were cases in which the evidence needed in order to convict a person could not be collected, or used if collected, because it violated constitutional rights. There are many instances of criminals walking free because terrorist pig thug cops, prosecutors, and trials violated their rights. Much of the unthinking public would be enraged because judges let a criminal off. The public was unable to understand that the judges were protecting their rights as well as the criminal’s.

This is how to stop it.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Kalifornia (PNN) - June 24, 2019 - It is no secret that the tech behemoth, Google, is in the data mining business. From cookies to targeted ads, the amount of specific information it has on individuals is mind blowing.

While these “features” are marketed to users to improve their user experience, the Orwellian tracking systems employed by Google to do so are shocking, especially the location tracking and history.
