The Grand Leviathan Chess Game Stars U.S. Citizens As Pawns

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I guess the point I’m trying to make by relaying to you what Fineman is writing here is that we are all but numbers in the grand elite game of chess that’s being played, with the grand prize being $3.8 trillion of other people’s money that these clowns in Washington, DC get to spend every year. It’s all neatly broken down for us now. We can subdivide results and then subdivide results, instead of just relying on the aged and the old and the institutional and the traditional of we know this is good and that is bad.

Frederic Bastiat on Property & Plunder

Mandeville, LA - Since the subject of "Profit and Plunder" keeps coming up on the radio show and since I keep referring to Bastiat's brilliant essay on the subject, I have gathered the open source material from Bastiat's works and am posting part of his book "The Law" here to inform listeners and visitors on the subject. If you'd like to read the book online it can be found here and I am embedding an amazon.com link to it in this post as well.

We Were Warned About Big Brother But We Didn’t Listen – 1984 Is Here

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There is nothing that you cannot imagine now that the general government is not either A, capable of, or B, has not already done. Whether it’s snooping, spying, eavesdropping, going through your mail, following you -- especially if you’re a reporter for Fox News named James Rosen -- or whatever the case may be.

Monopoly Is Not Much Fun When You’re A Property On The Board

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – How does all this play out? Ladies and gentlemen, it plays out horrifically because it cannot continue. The only reason it continues now is because people fear the government. They fear what’s going to happen to them if they don’t pay their taxes. They fear what’s going to happen to them if they don’t march in lockstep as they’re being told to march in lockstep. They fear what’s going to happen to them.

How The Industry Works and Why [r]epublicanism Is Our Only Hope

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Politics today is an industry, it is a business, it is The Industry. Why? Because it is an industry, my friends, that has a $3.8 trillion revenue stream, that’s right, $3.8 trillion, our Corporation of America. Hardly anyone says these United States anymore. I’m reading an article right now at The Imaginative Conservative that’s making way too much sense. I wonder where is this discussion in our politics today? Instead of having Obama and Romney and Ryan and Biden and the rest of them cavorting across the countryside, droning on endlessly, and whining and carping and complaining, like in Chicago for example, of why there isn’t sufficient funds to fund our schools.
