What the change to Rule 41 means for you

"Despite a last-minute effort to halt the change, federal investigators received expansive powers on December 1. Reuters reports .... 'The government will have 'unprecedented authority to hack into Americans' personal phones, computers and other devices.'' Fortune reports, 'The expanded search power ... is intended to make it easier for the FBI to carry out complex computer investigations.' Prior to the modification, federal judges were only allowed to issue warrants that covered that judicial district, meaning a judge in the Northern District of California could not issue a warrant for the FBI to search the computer of someone outside of that 14 county district."

"Rent control is another creation of those government 'wizards of smart' whose plans always seem to end up hurting the very people they are designed to help. More on that in today episode. Also, SHOCKING NEWS! Republicans plan to delay the Obamacare repeal for up to 3 years. I know, you're floored, right? It turns out the Republicans are going to use this policial gem as leverage for as long as they can. If you were under any false notion that government is looking out for you this episode will cure you of your delusions." (12/01/16)


The Cuban embargo destroy Americans’ freedom

"Amidst increasing speculation that President-elect Trump is going to reverse the Obama administration's attempts to normalize relations with Cuba, this would be a good time for Americans to start pushing back against any further destruction of their rights and liberties at the hands of their own government. A good place to start pushing back is by standing firm in favor of a lifting of the decades-long failed, deadly, and destructive U.S. economic embargo against Cuba." (12/02/16)


No, Trump’s deal with Carrier is not a win for liberty

"Free enterprise generates wealth through firms competing with each other for customers' dollars. Those who serve them best make a profit, and losses induce the others to reallocate their resources to other ventures. When currying favour with politicians is a more effective means of staying afloat than is efficient production of what people demand, firms will use their ingenuity and resources to lobby for preferential treatment, instead of serving customers. Their efforts are allocated to redistributing wealth instead of creating it through gains from trade, entrepreneurship, and innovation. The end result is consumers receive the poor service which we generally associate with firms sheltered from competition." (12/04/16)


Crony baloney

by Timothy J Taylor   Timothy J. Taylor

"Ever since Donald Trump declared his intention to run for president 18 months ago he's been promising to do all he can to dissuade American corporations from moving their manufacturing operations and jobs to Mexico and other countries to the detriment of the American economy. He put American companies on notice then that they would not be free to relocate their companies outside of the U.S. 'without consequences.' In all that time, few if any have complained that his plans would amount to crony capitalism until now with that perennial babbling idiot, Sarah Palin, suddenly wagging an accusing finger at Trump after he started to make good on his promises two months before taking office. As usual, Palin doesn't know what she's talking about." (12/04/16)

Common Sense
by Paul Jacob   Paul Jacob

"Sure, I've complained about the over-the-top anti-Trump bias of much of the mainstream media (which may actually have improved Trump's public standing). But, today, I enthusiastically celebrate that supercilious slant. Why? Because it means much of the media amazingly finds itself on the right side, panning the recent deal to save 1,000 jobs at the Carrier Corporation. Saving jobs is good per se. We want jobs to stay here in America. But, at what price?" (12/02/16)
