"In September 1993, President Bill Clinton reassured his radio audience that 'if you work hard and play by the rules, you'll be rewarded with a good life for yourself and a better chance for your children.' Picking up that theme over eighteen years later, President Barack Obama affirmed that 'Americans who work hard and play by the rules every day deserve a government and a financial system that does the same.' The trouble is neither the government nor the financial system backed by the Federal Reserve rewards people like my parents, who have worked hard and played by the rules their entire lives, only to have their savings wither away."

"Many Conservatives and Libertarians have expressed concern about a need to arm themselves to resist a tyrannical Government. We view many homicides by police as an attempt to force the American people to surrender their freedom by intimidation. If anyone should get Black distrust of the Gendarmery it's us. The thing is violent crime, including the murder of police, has been in a two decade long decline. The only category of killing that went up in 2013 was justifiable homicide by police." (03/29/15)

"Derrick J. and Dan Greene wax poetic on the numerous ways freedom is increasing every day, despite the state. Among them are cars, fire prevention, Internet, cookies, FeenPhone, Craigslist/Ebay, apps/smartphones, audio, money, media, emergency protection, and education. There are a bunch more, but that's all we had time for in one show." (03/30/15)  

Fossil fuels will save the world (really)

"The environmental movement has advanced three arguments in recent years for giving up fossil fuels: (1) that we will soon run out of them anyway; (2) that alternative sources of energy will price them out of the marketplace; and (3) that we cannot afford the climate consequences of burning them. These days, not one of the three arguments is looking very healthy. In fact, a more realistic assessment of our energy and environmental situation suggests that, for decades to come, we will continue to rely overwhelmingly on the fossil fuels that have contributed so dramatically to the world’s prosperity and progress."

"Once upon a time, it was left to tinpot dictators, ecclesiastical zealots, illiberal judges or scary inquisitors to proclaim a ban, to demand that some publication or custom or subversive phrase be outlawed. In the twenty-first century, however, calls for banning stuff have come down to Earth: now, literally anyone with access to the internet can demand a ban, and many do." (03/30/15)
