A Day to Celebrate Human Achievement

The third week of October marks the anniversary of a great human achievement. On October 21, 1879, Thomas Edison ran an electric current through an experimental light bulb.

10 LESSONS FOR 10-10-2020

The year 2020 has been anything but a year of seeing clearly. It has been characterized by uncertainty, divisiveness, and conflicting views. In the January prediction issue of my newsletter, “Forecasts & Strategies,” I stated, “The outlook for stocks, gold and the dollar is positive as we enter 2020, but beware of a ‘black swan’…

3LP: To Live and Let Live… and Thrive!

Should FreedomFest Go Virtual?

As we have gone through the painful process of cancelling FreedomFest this year, many of our followers have suggested that we go virtual instead, as some other conferences have done.

What Will You Do When Your World Crumbles?

Many of us fail to see the largest problems in life, especially when they are up close and in our face. While this is hard to believe, history shows us that this is simply the case time and time again. The old saying that, “The shoemaker’s kids go barefoot” could not be truer for most…

Retirement Accounts and the Business Cycle

Long before the days of the Virus Lock Down Quarantines and our current Socialist Revolution, economists spent almost 150 years attempting to understand, explain, and navigate what is commonly known today as the Business Cycle. The concepts of inflation and deflation are widely used among all disciplines of economic thought, including the Austrians, Monetarists, Keynesians,…

When They Want a New Normal and You Want to Scream

Everywhere we look for what seems like forever (has it really been only a couple of months??) we’re bombarded with the new words and phrases endlessly repeated in media and politics and subsequently adopted by the masses. “In this unprecedented time…” “Social distance…” “Stay Home, Stay Safe…” “Alone together…” And in my opinion, the worst—“New…

Did We Just Break The World?

Sean W. Malone I’ve never called COVID-19 a “hoax” or thought that it was “just the flu.” I criticized the Erickson video, and I didn’t bother to watch Plandemic. But I’ve been publicly skeptical of most dire coronavirus predictions since the beginning. I’m also extremely concerned about panic-based policy overreactions. This has put me at…

Why You Should NOT Stay Home

Go to the beaches… Mingle with friends… Get back to work. In the long run, this is best for everyone. If you’re like me, you’re going on Facebook and seeing a lot of people urging others to stay home. Some posts are quite angry. There is a growing fury against the protestors who want to…

And the People Woke Up

If you have any presence on social media at all, you have surely seen Kitty O’Meara’s sentimental prose poem “And the People Stayed Home,” which has circled the globe faster than a corona virus in the past couple of weeks.

What We Should Learn from China Now

Just in time for our mass incarceration – I mean, our leisurely sheltering at home — Amazon Prime has released its award-winning documentary about a killing scourge that invaded China.

COVID-19 and the Trolley Problem

Most wannabe moral philosophers know the “trolley problem” or, to be more accurate, the class of trolley problems, which seek to reveal whether you’d take a deliberate, positive action that you know will harm someone in order to reduce harm to others. The purpose of these thought experiments is to shed light on morality and…

Libertarian Insanity

Steven H. Nemerovski NoneOfTheAbove.us Originally published October, 2018 Whether or not the thought originally came from Einstein, there is a great deal of sagacity in the suggestion that “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Which then begs the question as to whether or not the Libertarian Party needs to get out…

Medical Breakthrough to Treat Heart Disease

By Dr. Jack Jacobs Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for all American adults, both men and women.
