UW Weapons: Let’s Get Rid of Vehicles and Knives, Too

By Bradley Harrington

“Whenever governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.” — Elbridge Gerry, “First Annals of Congress,” 1789 —

As a general rule, I ignore the columns of Rodger McDaniel, as they simply aren’t worth the powder it takes to blow them apart.

Once in a while, however, he’s so outrageous that wasting some good powder looks preferable to allowing his nonsense to propagate itself unchallenged. read more

House District 57, You Snooze You Lose

Time and again many talk about, and complain, that the GOP in Wyoming cannot get their act together, especially just before the Primary. That too many candidates run, for instance, for governor. This is the same for other political positions such as precinct committee members, city and county seats, and state house and senate positions.

One need only ask, “how can this be”, and you are sure to get several reasons why. Well, it’s not too hard to imagine that democrats register as republicans and run for local political positions. Thus the outcome is easy to see that these chameleons do not, will not, and never will subscribe to the GOP platform. And is precisely why they register as republicans. And this is why a red state like Wyoming moves to the Left and will not agree on basic things like our Bill of Rights. read more

Wyoming Governor’s Race – Harriet Hageman

Wyoming Governor’s Race – an objective look at the main candidates. (LAST ARTICLE OF FOUR)

This article is last of four, my attempt to look at each of the main candidates as objectively as I can. As I said in the first email, my wife and I are dedicated supporters of Harriet Hageman. Our personal regard for her does not enter into our evaluation of her opponents’ candidacies or hers. We look at record and policy, leaving out personal feelings.

After looking fairly, we conclude that there is no choice other than Harriet. read more

The Collapse of Venezuela: It Goes for Us in the U.S. as Well

“Directive 10-289, Point One: All workers, wage earners and employees of any kind whatsoever shall henceforth be attached to their jobs and shall not leave nor be dismissed nor change employment, under penalty of a term in jail …” — Ayn Rand, “Atlas Shrugged,” 1957 —

The above quote comes from a work of fiction.

THIS, however, does not:

“Thousands of oil workers are fleeing the state-run oil firm [PDVSA] under the watch of its new military commander [Venezuelan Oil Minister Major General Manuel Quevedo], who has quickly alienated the firm’s embattled upper echelon and its rank-and-file … Some PDVSA offices now have lines outside with dozens of workers waiting to quit. In at least one administrative office in Zulia state, human resources staff quit processing out the quitters, hanging a sign, ‘we do not accept resignations,’ an oil worker there told Reuters.” (“Workers are fleeing Venezuela’s state oil company, radiating pain through the country’s already crippled economy,” “The Business Insider,” April 17.) read more

Wyoming “WIN”: Little More Than Old Wine in New Bottles, It’s a Great Idea, Actually

Wyoming “WIN”: Little More Than Old Wine in New Bottles

By Bradley Harrington

“The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the consequences of that policy not merely for one group but for all groups.” — Henry Hazlitt, “Economics in One Lesson,” 1946 —

Governments throughout history have always made attempts to violate the Laws of the Universe, for a variety of reasons — and, one and all, they have always failed. read more
