A Lesson in Free-Market Economics, Medical-Style

What happens to prices when you kick both the government and insurance companies out of the medical market? Are doctors and hospitals then free to gouge patients even more deeply than they would otherwise?

The answer might surprise you, but if you know the power of the free market, it shouldn't.

This video should be a lesson in economics that everyone, and I mean everyone, should watch. In the impending implementation of ObamaCare, you can get a sense here of how much more badly any increased government interference in the medical market will mess things up.

An Urgent Conversation with Jay Richards on Economics

With only days to the election some are in desperate need of a good primer on basic economics, since most schools no longer teach it in the most classical sense, leaving our population to flounder in a pool of bad economic ideas and leadership.

This podcast (the one listed as "Money, Greed and God," in case this link goes whacky) from Frank Turek's "Cross Examined" radio program contains a commercial-free conversation with the Discovery Institute's Jay Richards about capitalism and socialism, what the two systems are, which is better, and why.

You, and everyone you know, needs to listen to this immediately. Send the link to all of your friends, especially fiscal liberals who think "just a little socialism" is what our country needs to set things right.

I'm hoping some lights will begin to illumine some long-dark attics and libraries within the minds of potential voters who need to hear this.

Conservatism Is Calling...

As the election looms in just 5 days, please remember what the president campaigned for just 4 short years ago, and ponder exactly how many of his promises he kept.

This devastating video makes the conservative case simply, fearlessly. You will find no racism here. No sexism. No discrimination of any kind, except distinguishing between those who choose to be victors, or victims. If you have an open mind you will watch to the end, then make your choice.

When Did Condi Rice and Darla Moore Stop Being Female?

This week the legendary Augusta National Golf Club decided to open its membership to its first two female members. Let me get this straight, it's not a victory for women unless it's a victory for LIBERAL women? What blatant hypocrisy!

Read David Zirin's bigoted, poorly reasoned (not to mention fact-challenged) polemic in its entirety and see the two-faced liberal mindset in all of it's elitist glory:

Condi Rice's Membership at Augusta National Is Nothing to Celebrate

Finally, A Little Acknowledgment of Our Situation by the Mainstream Press

With the liberal/progressive phalanxes claiming that Obama really has fixed a mess that he inherited, and that the president didn't really increase the budget deficit to record levels, fearfully compounding our already grave national debt, it's difficult to arrive at what is really going on in our troubled economy over the white noise of propaganda.

Today, however, the mainstream media, through the AP story linked below, finally rises above the static with some cogent, uncolored reporting on the true state of things as we, who are living in it, know to be true. Read on...

"US economic recovery is weakest since World War II"

If This Does Not Disturb You...

With a tip 'o the hat to Hugh Hewitt, please view this full clip. If you think the "Arab Spring" had a good outcome, just observe the violence and hatred that emerges when these Egyptian guests are told that they are on Israeli television. Sure, it's a "Candid Camera"-style prank, but you wouldn't be able to tell from the guests' reaction. This hatred is real, and is the reason peace remains an insurmountable goal in the Middle East.

I would say, "enjoy," but not this time. This is like watching people playing pranks on Nazi prison guards.

The "You Didn't Build That" Fallout Continues

Charles Krauthammer is arguably journalism's most intelligent commentator.

This incisive couple of lines from his latest Washington Post column is a proof-text:

"We don’t credit the Swiss postal service with the Special Theory of Relativity because it transmitted Einstein’s manuscript to the Annalen der Physik. Everyone drives the roads, goes to school, uses the mails. So did Steve Jobs. Yet only he created the Mac and the iPad."

Please read his whole analysis of the president's latest gaffe:

Did the state make you great?
