John Stossel on Regulation, Sweden's Free Market and his Journey to Libertarianism

8/15/2018
More
Today I was lucky enough to have John Stossel join the Program. He talks about his start as a consumer reporter bashing business and winning Emmy Awards, 19 to be exact, and then his revelation that the regulation that he was supporting wasn't actually effective, in fact it was making everything a little more complicated. By contrast, John explained his revelation that the free market regulated quality more so than the government ever could. This was all during his career at ABC where he...

825: The Alex Jones Show Crushed by the Big 3

8/6/2018
More
It's too early to tell if Alex Jones is finished but it's certainly going to be a lot harder for him to make a living now that iTunes, Youtube, Facebook, and Spotify have removed him from their platforms. I think this is an attempt to do a couple of things. Number one, this helps to pacify the growing outrage over "Fake News" and "Hate Speech". Alex is the poster boy for both. By killing his show the platforms show they are doing something to combat the misinformation and hate on the...

823: Omarosa Drops Trump Bomb in New Book...Maybe

8/2/2018
More
I'm always skeptical when I hear about a new Trump bombshell reservation and for good reason. Every time the claim has been made in the past its ended up being a huge letdown. This one may be different. Omarosa has been with the president for years. First on The Apprentice and most recently at the White House. A revealing section of her new book suggests there may be a problem with the president's mental state. However, this could all just be a big ruse to sell a lot of books. Omarosa...

822: 45% of NC School Teachers Failed Their Math Exam

8/1/2018
More
But before you go thinking that's the important part of the story I've got news for you...it isn't. There are really three issues at work. The first is the test itself. It could be, as some teachers claim, a problem with the test. There is also a teacher shortage problem in North Carolina. This brings up a very important economic principle we need discuss. In a free market, there should never be a shortage of anything. There is always a scarcity of goods and services but there should...

More
We've got a couple of really good news items I want to discuss with you. The first is out of Philly where the government has underfunded its pensions by 50%. It's also taken to placing leans on homes that owe more than $300 in outstanding payments to their government-run gas company. It's a great example of how government is working for you. :-) **** The second article has to do with Oregon's Cannabis laws. The Guardian is suggesting that recreational marijuana is hurting medical...

818: The Prices on Everything You buy is About to Go Up...Way Up

7/30/2018
More
Trump's tariffs are starting to have their first real effects on our economy and it's not good. Prices on everything from beer to automobiles is going up as steel and other products hit by Trumps trade war start to hit the shelves. The important point I want to make is not about the damage tariffs do but who actually pays for them. Did you know there are some people in America who think companies pay taxes? We are constantly hearing how corporations should "pay their fair share" meaning...

815: The Trump Tapes

7/25/2018
More
Yet another disappointing media orgasm. Yesterday the Trump tapes were released and this morning I watched CNN interview Lenny Davis, Cohen's lawyer about it. I'll play you the tape, the attorney's reaction, and my thoughts but let me just say this... Media in this country has become a joke. Even when the truth is clear for all to see the media will spin it. Here are the facts. 1. Trump set up a company to buy a story from a porn star so he could keep their sexual encounter a...

A recent shooting in Florida has called into question the Stand Your Ground law that allows those in immediate threat of death or great bodily harm to use deadly force in self-defense. But a recent case calls into question the use of this law and the negative consequences it can have. I'll relay the story to you on the show and you can decide for yourself if the shooter went too far. **** Trump and Rohani are at it again, trading verbal abuses in what can only be described as a high...

7/20/2018

And he did pretty well. Today I decided to do two things. 1. Breakdown the Massie interview 2. Give you some insights into how I motivate myself and keep myself accountable when I set goals. Some of you will get some value out of the motivation portion and some of you may just want to skip over to the Massie interview but I've got both of them for you so enjoy! Jason
