The Quest For Social Justice

The Left, that political philosophy whose noble goal is social justice through government, is weakening in America.  This is not only because its outcomes are so often counterproductive or trivial.  It's also because its announced policies are sometimes so hilarious that no one, except the… Read full post »

The One Thing Government Should Provide

Barack Obama’s policies and governing style have been soundly rejected after last night’s elections.  Even Salon admits to a “shellacking”.  At the same time, Salon makes its standard dire (and stupid) predictions about what Republicans will now do to end the America… Read full post »

Salon vs Open Salon


Open Salon may again be more worthy of respect than its parent – Salon. 

Today, Salon is full of the suicide of a famous comic.  This may be a saving grace, because, were it not for the distraction of the death of the famous, Salon may have populated… Read full post »

What America Should Do About Syria

“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized.  That would change my calculus,”

Congratulations On the OS Boycott!


OSers are mostly a socialist and progressive lot.  As such, they often reason and act as if they have no understanding of free-markets, free-enterprise, and businesses as largely self-regulating, cost-efficient institutions.
