Rachel greeted the woman at the table and remembers her being “very pretty” and “probably in her mid-20s.” “She seemed a bit shy, but she smiled as I greeted her.” Rachel served her a drink, took her order, and made some small talk about how the woman’s baby was beautiful and seemed so peaceful as […]

What’s crazier than creationism and gold? It’s in your wallet | Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee

This is an interesting observation by Chris Powell of GATA. The comment comparing those who espouse a gold standard to those who embrace creationism is meant to be disparaging. Another Joe takes it as an extreme compliment. Creation and the gold standard are tied closely together, with the first reference of gold being in Genesis […]

Today I offer a short note as we prepare to celebrate with friends and family tomorrow. With all the challenges we’re constantly confronted with, it’s good to have an opportunity to step back and get things into perspective. There are great opportunities for those who understand the times. But there are even greater opportunities for […]

Social Indoctrination: We didn’t even know it was happening.

This week I ran across another one of those articles that really makes me think. It’s a strong punch in the nose sometimes. This one was more of a slap across the face. It’s easy to grow complacent. It’s easy to not consider what’s happening around us. It’s easy to think it always happens to […]

How Pride Enslaves us to Ignorance

Today my wife and I had a disagreement. This happens in marriage, and can be either an opportunity or a setback. Often, because of our pride, it turns into a setback. But, if we’ll humble ourselves and pursue effective communication, it can always be an opportunity. This particular topic, which will eventually be revealed in […]

Ayn Rand was a very interesting woman. I’ve not really studied her life, having only read a little about her – both good and bad. And I’ve never read any of her books. She seems to be both loved and hated. Of course, with her exposure of the cronyism and political manipulations of our socialistic […]

An Unforeseen Lesson in Economics: Marginal Job or Socialism?

Recently I’ve become rather encouraged with how much I’ve been learning about Austrian economics. I know I’ve a long way to go yet. Some of the articles I read are so far over my head that I give up, skim through quickly and then delete. But, on a foundational level, I’ve really started to feel […]

Reasons You Should NOT Be Grateful!

It’s been an interesting week, though nothing unexpected has happened. Europe still seems to be imploding. Congress agrees that we need more debt in order to survive (okay, I twisted that one a little for impact). Policemen are finding new ways to intimidate and bully us serfs. Airports are continuing to offer us radiation treatments […]

Good morning Another Joe, I’m still digging up some info on the implications of Keynesianism. The challenge isn’t a matter of gaining new information so much as compiling what I have in a manner that is most clear and helpful. I recently read testimony that was somewhat chilling. It’s not about the buses, but the draconian […]

We hear the great tales of the little guy standing against the tyrannical bully and our hearts soar. Most of us can relate. We tend to pull for the underdog. Let’s face it, our favorite ball games are the come from behind victories. The stand of the 300 Spartans against the hoards of Persia in […]

Enablement, Entitlement, Victimization… is this all at the feet of Wall Street?

With all the exciting news coming out of Europe in light of Slovakia’s entrenched position against further financial enabling for Greece, I had planned on spending some time considering the implications. Also, we need to keep our eyes on Richard Sulik, head of the Freedom and Solidarity Party in this plucky country. Though they are […]
