Shop Ferguson and Dellwood This Weekend

Sorry I’m so late on this. This sounds whiny, I know, but I have a really involved week at work this week. Sorry. Crap always seems to work out this way, though. When there’s a great need for Tea Party services, I’m tied up with work obligations. Something has to give, and it’s usually the …

Bureaucratizing Street Gangs

Did you ever wonder why do-gooders and social planners never pay for their crimes? Yesterday, I wrote about Jesse Jackson dressing down at the hands of activists in a McDonald’s parking lot in Ferguson. I pointed out that Martin Luther King and Dick Gregory were similarly dismissed by rioters in the 1960s. Some things never change. …

Exposing the Race Hustlers in Ferguson

There’s an awesome YouTube video of Jesse Jackson getting skewered in Ferguson. First, though, a little history. One of the greatest books ever on race-based poverty and jobs programs is Tom Wolfe’s Mau-Mauing the Flak-Catchers. You won’t understand race politics in America without reading it. Twice.

**DOH!** ACTION: Tell Missouri Legislature Jay Nixon to Pass Tax Holiday for Ferguson

#Ferguson Tax Holiday

UPDATE Tim Jones let me know that I’m giving the legislature more power than it actually has. Veto sessions are limited to overriding vetos. Thus the name. BUT the governor can call a Special Session to vote on a Ferguson Tax Holiday. That session can run concurrent with the Veto Session, saving taxpayer dollars. SO …

Why St. Louis Tea Party Went to Ferguson To Shop

You can’t change the world in your living room. That’s why a small band of (mostly) white people from (mostly) West County drove to Ferguson (and Dellwood) to shop tonight. We targeted the small businesses that were hit hard by violence–violence committed (mostly) by out of town agitators, criminals, vandals, and hooligans. We drove to …

The Export-Import Bank Story the Post-Dispatch Refused to Print

Since the Post won’t run my reply a recent op-ed about the Ex-Im Bank, I’ll publish it here: Huge multi-national corporations like to preach from the “small business” bible when it comes to the Export-Import bank. Unfortunately, most of the Ex-Im propaganda about how “small business” benefits crumbles under scrutiny. Professor Stanford Levin of Southern …
