The Weekend Vigilante June 8, 2013

June 8, 2013

Hello from Acapulco,

I've recently moved my home office downstairs in our house.  The house is built into a hillside and has five long sets of stairs from the bottom to the top where my bedroom is.  Prior to moving my office downstairs I'd spend most of the day in the upper parts far removed from street level in this private, gated community.  Now that my office is downstairs I spend time with a view out of a window to a patio directly overlooking the quiet street where the free market action has been remarkable.  I had no idea what was going on as my wife or our maid will generally handle the daily affairs of the house.

Nothing shows the difference that a local governing style has on an area such as South America like the current difference between Venezuela and Chile. It is almost becoming as obvious as the difference between North Korea and South Korea.

Why You Shouldn't Read About Paul Krugman While Drinking

June 4, 2013

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Editor, Gary Gibson]

Have you ever been at a bar or some other public place and had to overhear some goober talking nonsense that wasn't just offensive but also aggressively stupid? We've all been there: listening to some idiot spout off on something that we know to be patently, embarrassingly wrong. We've all fought the urge to shut such idiots up with sudden, naked violence (because such violence would clearly be wrong). I found myself in just such a situation as I wrote the blog at my neighborhood bar earlier.

Pop Quiz On Government

June 3, 2013

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Editor-in-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

If you still can't understand the dire need to get the small wonderful people (kids) in your life out of public and even government-approved private school, this should drive it home.

A Canadian reader sent along a copy of a recent letter to parents from a public indoctrination camp teacher on a pop quiz to be given at a Canadian government-approved and licensed school. This is an actual, direct copy with real names removed to protect the guilty.

Dear Parents,

The Weekend Vigilante June 1, 2013

June 1, 2013

Hello from glorious Acapulco,

It is especially glorious for me after shivering most of the week in Vancouver at the World Resource Investment Conference.  Although, my driver picking me up at the airport in Acapulco told me they had just been hit by a hurricane which I hadn't even heard about... my wife on our daily Skype chats hadn't even mentioned it.  It's amazing what a different fear level things induce when there are no CNN reporters there to act like the wind is knocking them over and tell you how scary it is.

"Is everything okay?" I asked my driver.

"Ya, just lots of rain," he responded.

I was a bit sad to have missed it... I like hurricanes.  Everything except Cat 5, of course.

Anyone catch O'Bomber's commencement speech to young, unsuspecting new graduates of the US Naval Academy (ie: killing school)? So inspiring. Filled with lies, conjecture, empty promises, and more lies, and telling graduates they must be vigilant in preventing sexual assaults and help restore the country’s trust in the military... when did we have faith in the military?

Never Go Full Commie!

What do you call an economic system that takes most or all of the money you earn? You might have asked blacks in 18th century America, or you could ask taxpayers in France under French President Francois Hollande.
