Good Morning.

You'll want to keep your eye on the Korean peninsula for the next few days. It's time for those annual military exercises with our ally South Korea, and the North is none too pleased. The bloviating dictator has promised to turn the South into "a heap of ashes" if there is the slightest provocation during the event.

Disney as Utopia
Author: TriSec    Date: 08/20/2016 12:45:40

Good Morning.

It was a week ago we were starting our last day at the Magic Kingdom. After all the buildup, hard to believe it's receding almost as quickly. But nevertheless - time moves on relentlessly.

The vast Disney complex in Central Florida is right next to a major population center, yet is completely disconnected from it. Once you're under that welcome arch, it's like being in a different world.

A Shrinking Marketplace
Author: BobR    Date: 08/17/2016 13:54:38

During the primary season, I was aggravated with the news media (in particular - MSNBC) for focusing almost exclusively on the Republican Clown Car (mainly tRump), and barely covering the Democratic primary. At this point, it's all tRump -vs- Hillary, with negative news about both dominating the news cycles on all the networks (cue Don Henley's "Dirty Laundry").

I have found that we here at FourFreedomsBlog are perhaps guilty of the same thing. So in an attempt to break the cycle of abuse, I am going to veer off on a tangent today - the ACA (aka: Obamacare).

Nearly three years ago, Raine wrote an excellent piece on path dependency. The term describes how we arrive at certain situations due to limited options produced by previous decisions. Think about our dependence on gasoline: we used to travel mainly by train. However, once the highway system was built, gas-powered automobiles became preferred, and the train system disappeared, making it no longer an option. The financial power of the petrol industry grew, allowing it to pressure automobile companies to produce only gasoline vehicles. Entire industries and infrastructures grew out of that dependence, making it that much more difficult to choose a different path.

Good Morning.

Being just back from vacation, my story archive is looking a little empty this morning. But of all things, there's actually a story that combines some things we've been following here for years - the F-22, and Bees!

The Riggers

As you all know, Obama and Hillary Clinton are the founders of ISIS. It all started one night in February of 2008 when Hillary released her "3am in America" attack ad against Obama. The story goes that Barack picked up the phone (at 3am) and prank called Clinton at her home to see if she really would answer a phone.
