Given some of the recent Supreme Court and Congressional decisions, you might wonder where we are living these days. In particular, private property is on its way out. Your property is only yours as long as the government doesn't need it for "job creation and tax revenue" !!
Must reads from the past weeks:
People who know me know that I am not in favor of burning flags. However, it is not the government's role to tell us what we can and can't do with our private property - which a flag becomes as soon as I buy it from the Dollar Tree who paid a Chinese worker to produce the thing in the first place. We don't have the right to not have our feelings hurt, and changing the Constitution isn't gonna help. Cheap political ploy - it has been in the past - but one of these days it's gonna pass the Senate and then watch out.

In my mind, we started at Laissez Faire, made it through Capitalism, are now knocking on the door of fascism, and perhaps on our way to the other ism's.
