Regulations

My views on regulations and how the help (and hurt) the world we live in, from jobs to monetary policies.

Do Police Prevent Crime? More Police Better?

Burglar breaking into house

Ask yourself this question: Who prevents a crime targeted at you from happening? Most people would answer, the Police. But do police really prevent crime? How often has a police officer stopped a home invasion? What about a mugging? What about a bank robbery? How often has a police officer stopped a murder from happening? Or a fight from breaking out in a bar? Unless they happen to be in the right place and the right time, it’s unlikely they could prevent any crime from happening. Usually, people call 911…

Obama – More Windmills to Lessen our Dependence on Foreign Oil

President Obama is just as clueless as former President Bush. Here’s a couple quotes from his most recent town hall style meeting at a windmill factory: … a future where America is less dependent on foreign oil, more reliant on clean energy produced by workers like you.That will happen by reducing oil imports, tapping domestic energy sources and shifting the nation to renewable and less polluting sources of energy, such as wind. Why is this such a hard concept to understand!? Windmills and solar panels produce electricity, not oil. Gasoline,…

Another Horrible Gun Control Article by the Media

I guess the major media outlets will publish any article that meets their biased position. Here’s an example from the Boston Globe … http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2011/01/12/bay_state_sanity/ This is truly a bad article, poor journalism, and flat out awful in its attempts to claim laws stop crazy people from doing crazy things.

And as we’ve seen so many times before, there are people who refuse to blame the person who committed…

Health Care Reform: Buyer Beware

If Obama’s Health Care Reform bill is so good for the American People, why is he having to bribe, plead and beg for its passage? For anyone who is capable of thinking objectively (Republican, Democrat, Independent), this process should be setting off very loud alarm bells. You are being fooled. It doesn’t get any more obvious than this. Set all the rhetoric aside, from both sides of the aisle, and ask yourself these common sense questions: If the Health Care Reform bill is so good, why can’t it pass on…

When Will We Run Out of Oil – Peak Oil?

No one knows how much oil remains untapped beneath the Earth’s surface, but it’s a lot. To the surprise of many, we are not going to run out anytime soon, and there are a lot of people with vested interests in making sure no one knows. Big Oil, OPEC, speculators are all in the business of driving up oil prices to make a profit and as long as there’s uncertainty, they can manipulate prices. Also, the oil won’t dry up overnight. There will be a gradual decline where we find…
