Regulation-- when congress won't do its job
(Government, Law)
by J. B. Cannon (12 March 2012 17:22:22)

Conservatives have long championed smaller government, and for good reason. Our Founding Fathers didn''t want a bloated, overbearing government ruling the lives of citizens. They would be shocked to see what has happened to their beloved Constitution and governmental framework. I learned today of another prime example of a government gone mad. It''s also a perfect illustration of the more serious threat to our liberty: regulations.

Andrew Breitbart R.I.P.
(Politics, Society)
by J. B. Cannon (05 March 2012 17:14:33)

American conservatives lost a great champion this past week. Andrew Breitbart died much too soon and it was a shock to many of us. I''ve had a YouTube channel for a while, but hadn''t posted anything to it. In truth, a big part of why was simply fear. I knew I''d be opening myself up to a whole lot of attacks the moment I did.

The problem with all this goes much further than infringing on the First Amendment. This is another case of the government usurping more power and eroding our liberties. How on Earth is it okay for the government to tell a private business what products it must offer and for how much?

Occupy Wall Street, Part 2
by J. B. Cannon (20 February 2012 17:02:27)

I want to revisit the Occupy movement, to offer a key point I''m not hearing anywhere else. Most of the Occupy folks I''ve seen in videos are young adults fresh out of college. Part of their complaint is they have a huge student loan debt and no job prospects. I blame the ''everyone gets a trophy mentality'' for their upset. Let me explain.
