Video: Inoffensive Classroom Education

Written by Gary North on November 14, 2015

This is amusing because it’s close to the truth. You can send your child to college for (say) $75,000 after taxes, or you can have him earn his accredited degree by CLEP exams and distance learning for under $15,000 per bachelor’s degree. Any student can pay for this by working part-time. Take your pick.

Never Pay a Newspaper to Run an Obituary

Written by Gary North on November 14, 2015

obituaries

My mother died this week. I have written about how not to get guilt-manipulated by a funeral home. Read it here. It turns out that the local newspaper wants a piece of the action. It charges $300 for an obituary. That’s $1 a word. Don’t pay for this. If you cannot get it printed for […]

Has God Mandated a Way for Economics?

Posted on November 14, 2015

tom-rose

By Tom Rose Is it true that, in the mind of God, it makes no difference under what kind of economic and political rule His children live? Or, to pose the question in another way, is God indifferent to the atmosphere and manner in which men exchange goods and services? Is He just as pleased […]

ObamaTrade Is ObamaCare, But With More Coercion

Written by Gary North on November 7, 2015

obamatrade

Remember this phrase? “If you like your present health care plan, you can keep it.” The President is not even pretending to allow any freedom of choice with ObamaTrade, aka the Trans-Pacific Partnership. ObamaTrade is to trade what ObamaCare is to medical care: a bureaucratic monstrosity. It is 5,544 pages long — 3,500 pages longer […]

America’s Oligarchy and the Federal Reserve

Written by Gary North on November 7, 2015

Mexico is an oligarchy. Look at photos of every President who was not a military dictator. He looks like a European by ancestry. That’s because he was. Mexico pretends to be a democracy. The photos say otherwise. No one who looks like a Mexican is ever elected President by Mexicans. Americans who are aware of […]

Failed State Immigrants vs. Europe’s Welfare States

Written by Gary North on November 7, 2015

immigrants

At the same time, this is only the beginning of the crisis, because the conditions inciting people to flee their homelands will only worsen. And the EU, many of whose members have the world’s largest and best-equipped welfare systems, appears to be overwhelmed by it — politically, morally, and administratively. This paralysis creates a significant […]

“Free Trade Has Destroyed American Manufacturing.”

Written by Gary North on November 7, 2015

ManufacturingOutput

This criticism of free trade is wrong. To understand why it is wrong, first consider this chart of the per capita output of American manufacturing. It is not a chart that most Americans have ever seen. Economist Mark Perry has provided it. He also provides another chart that shows manufacturing output in the five major […]

These Failed Presidents Provided Their Own Headstones

Written by Gary North on November 7, 2015

presidents

We do not remember much about the presidencies of recent Presidents. FDR, yes: the New Deal and World War II. Phrase: “There is nothing to fear except . . . fear itself.” (1933 Inaugural address.) Truman, yes: World War II, the 1948 victory over Dewey, and the Korean War. Phrase: “The buck stops here.” (Sign […]

No Access! Old Browsers Are Almost Defunct

Written by Gary North on November 7, 2015

security

Earlier this year, Web technicians determined that a common way to securely transmit data through websites wasn’t as secure as once thought. These methods (SSL 2.0, 3.0 and TLS 1.0) were commonly used throughout the Internet. Today’s secure sites are now blocking access to browsers that use these older methods. Browsers that are still set […]
