CNN seems to be a wealth of fallacies lately . This family was devastated when the father lost his job eight years before he was supposed to retire. When offered a job opportunity a thousand miles away, they responded with this... "The Kerls didn’t...
Will College become a luxury?

This discussion is based on the commentary here. The commentary makes the point that rising fees are pricing some people out of higher education. I think its great. When demand is this high, markets respond with higher prices out of necessity. When more...
Liberals V. Darwin
Published Mon, Mar 8 2010 5:37 PM |
I find the fact that so many liberals are Darwin followers quite ironic. Sadly, liberals and government workers alike put aside what may be truths in Darwinism, and try to control the forces of nature . As opposed to letting the fittest survive, Liberals...
Sean Penn is a standout lunatic
Published Sat, Mar 6 2010 9:34 AM |
As you can read here , Sean Penn is wishing Rectal Cancer on anyone who criticizes him. Ironic, seeing as he is pushing for socialized medicine, so wouldn't he be paying for them to get their rectums operated on? Also of some interest, it never ceases...

Bierfeldt and Ron Paul Hire the ACLU to file a lawsuit. Oh Lord....

Ron Paul is a man who is often misunderstood, and misrepresented, by the media and the general public alike. A man with a strong Austrian streak who has written articles and pamphlets for this very website, also ran for the Republican nomination for the...
What has AIG done wrong?

In regards to the bonus fiasco, the answer would be nothing. Here are two reasons why.... 1.) Say you have a friend who spends all, or even a good portion of his money gambling. If this friend were to come to you and ask you for a loan, what would you...
Obama "stimulus" put to work
Published Tue, Mar 3 2009 2:49 PM |
One common fallacy that is perpetuated every day is the thought that spending by the government "fixes" things. It seems important for many of the same articles to also point out how certain spending also "creates" jobs. The statements...
How we speak
Published Mon, Feb 23 2009 5:52 PM |
Much of sociological thought is formed around basic ideas that are the predilections of other ideas. One large idea is that language forms the foundation for human interaction. If there was no language, it is thought, there would be a lack of society...
Oppose Stimulus? Dont take the money?
Published Mon, Feb 16 2009 5:17 PM |
In a commentary written today by Paul Begala on CNN.com, he makes many assertations about the spending of the stimulus package by those opposed to the very idea of it. Fallacious thinking does form the foundation for socialism, so it is important to look...

Reading through the CNN.com homepage, a logical person can not help but be appalled. Among articles of some substance about real issues affecting Americans today, one will find articles speaking of the recessions' affect on Hip Hop stars spending...
The Auto Industry
Published Fri, Dec 5 2008 11:05 AM |

A common option for high school students is the ability to graduate one or even two semesters early. This enables them to get a head start on college or even work in the months leading up to college to help afford the mountainous expenses they will surely...
How should we be run?
Published Fri, Oct 24 2008 1:25 PM |
I have been a libertarian since I was about 12 years old, because even at that age I could tell the virtue of individuals making their own choices and deciding what is best for them personally. It bothers me that even to this day there are still people...
Krugman proves whats popular isnt always right....
Published Mon, Oct 13 2008 10:25 PM |
I could start this blog with a long winded declaration of what Paul Krugman has done, but I assume that most people have at least heard the rhetoric that he spews. For the longest time, I have heard that the Nobel Prize in all of its forms is a prize...
