Obama’s Perfect Track Record on Crony Capitalism

It seems like Obama would try to be a little less transparent about the crony capitalism that has marked his administration. But apparently, it doesn’t matter to his supporters what he does. A tip for big corporations jockeying for favors from Obama’s DoJ: Make sure you donate heavily to the Democratic Party and/or Obama favorites. If you do, you’ll get huge favors. But if your executives contribute to opponents of Obama, you’re not...

Study: Anti-Anxiety Drugs Are Killing You

Legal drugs in the land of Big Pharma are the worst. The side effects on some drugs are hilarious. I’ve seen multiple anti-depressants that cited “suicidal tendencies” as a side effect. What? “I’m not sad anymore at all, doctor. But now I want to kill myself.” Or there is the uncanny ability of anti-psychotic drugs to induce actual psychosis. I don’t get it. Well it turns out that, according to a seven-year study, prescription...

GM is Alive; At Least Twelve GM Owners Are Not

For me, the most frustrating part of the massive bailout for the failing big businesses of America (like GM and the big banking interests) is not how much money the taxpayers had to shell out (though that was rather frustrating).

I used to be a very happy customer of Washington...

Google “Partnering” with Corrupt FDA to Regulate Online Pharmacies

An article in the National Journal has the headline “How Google is Trying to Protect Your Drug Supply.” That sounds nice doesn’t it? Your drug supply. The article outlines how Google is now partnering with federal agencies (mostly the FDA) to make sure that dangerous drugs don’t get into the hands of poor, unsuspecting citizens like you. Thanks, Big Brother! I don’t know what we would do without you! Perhaps my sarcasm puzzles you....

Comcast, Lobbyists, and Revolving Doors

There’s a deal on the table for Comcast to buy Time Warner Cable, which would make Comcast by far the biggest cable provider in the nation. And there is a lot of back and forth as to whether or not that would be a good thing. A few anti-trust pundits think the merger is bad for competition and consumer choice. But others think it might help to invigorate a flagging cable industry, giving it the capital it needs to adapt to a changing...

What They Call Capitalism Isn’t Capitalism At All

When most leftists and liberals decry the current American system, they talk about income inequality, corporate welfare, big business lobbying, and the like. They tend to call these things “the evils of capitalism” or something similar. Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that leftists and liberals are wrong to call these things capitalism. The bad news is that leftists and liberals are right to call these things...
