An Alternative to the Lockdown Strategy in the Fight Against Coronavirus The current coronavirus strategy of most governments is a recipe for a worldwide economic disaster.

What Government is Doing While Everyone Panics-...
The Government Wants To Dramatically Weaken Your Encryption. Here Is Why It Should Not. Late last week, reports emerged that, once again, senior United States government officials are contemplating seeking legislation that would ban ordinary citizens from using encryption that the government cannot easily crack, reviving the battle between the government – which believes that encryption hampers its efforts to monitor the communications of terrorists and criminals – and technology firms that wish to offer the best security to their users. The new proposal would impact every user of Whatsapp and other tools that offer end-to-end encryption – that is, that allow users to carry on conversations that are encrypted in such a fashion that the chat-service provider itself cannot decrypt them. 1. There is no evidence that allowing law-abiding private citizens to use encryption actually helps terrorists achieve their aims. (If there is such evidence, let the government present it to the public.) At least as far as the public has been told, we have not experienced terrorist attacks that would have been preventable had the government been able to more easily break the encryption of standard messaging tools. In fact, it seems that many communications between terrorists are carried out without any encryption.  As was seen clearly after the Paris attacks in 2015, governmental failure to monitor terrorist communications is arising primarily from other deficiencies – such as not quickly enough identifying the right people to monitor – rather than from the inability of law enforcement and intelligence agencies to decrypt encrypted communications. 2. There are more effective actions to take against terrorists that should come first. Before we ask Americans to surrender privacy in order to gain security, the government should demonstrate that in has acted with competence in all other areas of the war against terror and exhausted other means. As I noted in 2015, when we hear our Commander-in-Chief telling us how ISIS is “contained” days before the organization kills over a hundred people in the heart of Paris, when we barely hear anything from the government when an American student is murdered by a terrorist in the West Bank, when we hear that the Turkish government tried to warn France twice about one of the suspects involved in the Paris killings but that the French did not respond until after the attacks, etc. we have to wonder if there are other much more significant actions that the government could (and should) be taking to combat terrorists before it deems it necessary to strip us of our rights. --- Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>

Let's Talk About Price Gouging || EP 208
<p><em><strong>Coronavirus: Tennessee brothers hoard nearly 18,000 bottles of hand sanitizer, say they have nowhere to sell it</strong></em></p> <p><em>Two brothers from Tennessee who said they tried to capitalize on the coronavirus outbreak by buying nearly 18,000 bottles of hand sanitizer now claim they have nowhere to sell the products after a crackdown on online price gouging.</em></p> <p><em>After the first COVID19-related death in the U.S. was announced, 36-year-old Noah Colvin and his brother, Matt, cleared out hand sanitizer from stores around Chattanooga, Tenn., and parts of Kentucky, The New York Times first reported. Their intention was to sell the goods on Amazon at marked-up prices.</em></p> <p><em>They sold the sanitizer for between $8 and $70 each, multiple times higher than what they paid for the product at local stores, the paper reported.</em></p> <p><em>The brothers declined to disclose their exact profits, saying only that it was "substantial."</em></p> <p><em>Despite backlash and accusations of profiteering, Noah Colvin defended his methods to The Times, saying there was "crushing overwhelming demand" in areas not carrying the products.</em></p> <p><em>"I honestly feel like it's a public service," he said. "I'm being paid for my public service."</em></p> <p><em>But, Amazon, along with other online platforms including eBay and Walmart, shut down sellers such as the Colvin brothers who were found to be price gouging.</em></p> <p><em>"Price gouging is a clear violation of our policies, unethical, and in some areas, illegal," Amazon announced in a statement. "In addition to terminating these third-party accounts, we welcome the opportunity to work directly with states attorneys general to prosecute bad actors."</em></p> <p><em>Now, some 17,700 bottles of hand sanitizer have been sitting in Noah Colvin’s garage, with no place to sell them, the paper reported.</em></p> <p><em>After the brothers made headlines, news outlets reported that investigators with the Tennessee attorney general’s office ordered the Colvins to end any profiteering strategies. The state, which has had laws against price gouging, was investigating the case.</em></p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>

Here's what you need to know about the virus and the disease it causes, called COVID-19.</p> <p>Update on Monday, March 9 (ET):</p> <p>—There are about 564 confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S., with 136 of those in Washington state and 124 in California.</p> <p>—There are now 22 coronavirus deaths in the U.S. (19 in Washington and 2 in Florida).</p> <p>—There are 3,892 deaths linked to the virus worldwide. Deaths worldwide exceed those from SARS. And 62,375 individuals have recovered from COVID-19.</p> <p>—There are 111,354 confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide, with more cases popping up outside China than inside.</p> <p>—Additional cases have been confirmed in New York, bringing the state's total to 106.</p> <p><br></p> <p><strong>How does the new coronavirus compare with the flu?</strong></p> <p>The new coronavirus outbreak has made headlines in recent weeks, but there's another viral epidemic hitting countries around the world: flu season. But how do these viruses compare, and which one is really more worrisome?</p> <p>So far, the new coronavirus has led to more than 100,000 illnesses and more than 3,000 deaths worldwide. But that's nothing compared with the flu, also called influenza. In the U.S. alone, the flu has caused an estimated 34 million illnesses, 350,000 hospitalizations and 20,000 deaths this season, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).</p> <p>That said, scientists have studied seasonal flu for decades. So, despite the danger of it, we know a lot about flu viruses and what to expect each season. In contrast, very little is known about the new coronavirus and the disease it causes, dubbed COVID-19, because it's so new. This means COVID-19 is something of a wild card in terms of how far it will spread and how many deaths it will cause.</p> <p>"Despite the morbidity and mortality with influenza, there's a certainty … of seasonal flu," Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a White House press conference on Jan. 31. "I can tell you all, guaranteed, that as we get into March and April, the flu cases are going to go down. You could predict pretty accurately what the range of the mortality is and the hospitalizations [will be]," Fauci said. "The issue now with [COVID-19] is that there's a lot of unknowns."</p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>

Investing, by it's very nature is a risky business. Even if we just take the tax on stock trades, excluding the proposals for taxes on derivatives, we've got a .5% tax on every stock purchase. That doesn't sound like much, does it? Bernie Sanders says that with just a little tax like this we could raise $2.4 trillion dollars over 10 years and pay for free college for everyone.</p> <p>As usual, he's flat wrong.</p> <p>I don't think we've hidden the fact that I'm not a fan of Bernie Sanders. Actually, you might have even typed to reach this article. I do, however, remain truthful about my analysis of his policies- and that's why I feel the way I do about him.</p> <p><a href="">Read more</a></p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>

Who Gets To Spend Your Money? | EP 192
From the Atlantic: It’s Jeff Bezos’s Planet Now On Monday, Jeff Bezos announced the creation of the Bezos Earth Fund, which will disperse $10 billion in the name of combatting climate change. The fund is a triumph of philanthropy—and a perfect emblem of a national failing. Or rather, a series of national failings. In a healthy democracy, the world’s richest man wouldn’t be able to painlessly make a $10 billion donation. His fortune would be mitigated by the tax collector; antitrust laws would constrain the growth of his business. Instead of relying on a tycoon to bankroll the national response to an existential crisis, there would be a national response. But in an age of political dysfunction, Bezos has begun to subsume the powers of the state. Where the government once funded the ambitious exploration of space, Bezos is leading that project, spending a billion dollars each year to build rockets and rovers. His company, Amazon, is spearheading an experimental effort to fix American health care; it will also spend $700 million to retrain workers in the shadow of automation and displacement. Meanwhile, swaths of the federal government have contracted with Amazon to keep data on the company’s servers. Bezos is providing the vital infrastructure of state. When Amazon locates its second headquarters on the Potomac, staring across the river at the capital, it will provide a perfect geographic encapsulation of the new balance of power.

Okay, Jeff Bezos is in fact worth a lot of money, but does he actually make that much in income? A quick trip to your calculator would tell you that $215 million per day would equal $78 BILLION per year. Maybe that seems possible for the worlds richest person, but it isn't. It just plain isn't. Amazon's gross income in 2018 was $71 billion.

<p>Yesterday, the US military killed top Iranian military leader Gen. Qasem Soleimani in a targeted assassination via drone strike in Baghdad, Iraq. This attack was no doubt in reaction to an attack on the US Embassy in Iraq that took place over the holiday. That attack, was in retaliation for an attack U.S. forces carried out on five Kataeb Hezbollah facilities in Iraq and Syria on Sunday. Those airstrikes were in retaliation for an attack on Dec. 27, in which an American contractor was killed and several U.S. military service members were wounded in a 30-plus rocket barrage on a military base near Kirkuk, in northern Iraq.

<p><a href="">No Bernie, Women Don't Have a 'Constitutional Right' to a Taxpayer-Funded Abortion</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>Yesterday, Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders made yet another wild and unfounded statement on twitter:</p> <p>"Abortion is a constitutional right- Not a privilege for those that can afford it."</p> <p>Let's be clear about the argument laid out in this tweet. Bernie isn't even having a conversation about whether or not abortion should be legal. He's moving past that, and now stating that not only should they be legal, but you have a "constitutional right" to an abortion paid for by other people. The problem he's pinpointing is not abortion's legality, but the terrible tragedy of only rich people being able to afford abortions.</p> <p>Sanders loosely derives this conclusion from the famous Supreme Court case of Roe v. Wade. But remember, Roe v. Wade did not lay out that the government should use taxpayer money to subsidize abortions. It simply said that the 4th Amendment protected a woman's privacy in this matter.</p> <p>READ THE REST AT <a href="">GOODMORNINGLIBERTY.US</a></p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>

Doesn’t it promote greed, fraud, abuse, and any other terrible thing you can think of?</p> <p>Humans are greedy. Humans are dishonest. Humans want the most they can get from the least amount of effort. Yes, Capitalism has shown us how these qualities can become exaggerated, and might even lead to “exploitation,” but there’s just one problem.. The same human beings exist under Socialism, as well. This does not mean that we should give up on becoming better people, but it does mean that we should not ignore the reality of humanity in front of us.</p> <p>When contemplating an economic and social system, you have to ask the following question: Which system, when it’s corrupted by evil men, has the best chance of creating a better life for the most amount of people possible? That answer, has been proven time and time again throughout history.</p> <p>Yes, Free-Market Capitalism rewards greed, but under true Free-Market Capitalism, those who seek to take advantage of others are forced to provide the people with things they want. They are forced to provide the best service while knowing that others have the opportunity to rise, and compete against them. Don't agree?

Within the $1.4 trillion spending bill passed by Congress and signed by President Trump, we saw a much needed removal of the tax on so-called “Cadillac” insurance plans.</p> <p>That's right, employers and insurance companies were actually being punished for offering insurance plans that were too good. Why? Among other reasons, the simplest would be that if the taxpayers are subsidizing insurance, we don’t want the insurance to be too expensive to start out with. Then, the government could be accused of not wanting to subsidize plans that only the rich could afford. The answer? Do your best to make those plans illegal, or at least remove them from the equation.</p> <p>Read the rest at</p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>

<p></p> <p>Let's talk about Trump's tax returns! What's in them? No one knows. Of course, this fortunately leaves room for wild speculation. Is he actually only worth $1 billion? Did he pay money to Jeffery Epstein? Did he evade taxes? We don't really care, unless it was that Epstein conspiracy.&nbsp;</p> <p>Retailers nationwide are competing with Amazon by offering free 1-day shipping. Oh, the perils of Capitalism. Seems as though you can now benefit from Amazon, even if you don't have a membership.&nbsp;</p> <p>Speaking of Amazon, let's talk about conditions in their warehouses. We spoke about an unfortunate story involving a former Amazon employee. She now has bulging discs, and suffers from constant pain due to the constant stream of work required by Amazon. Her Job description? Pick up boxes and put them on a shelf. Of course, some of those boxes were heavy. Quick question: Can you blame the business if someone takes a job that knowingly requires the lifting of heavy boxes, and they end up with a bad back? For that matter, could you demonize construction managers because their drywall hangers suffer from back pain later in life? How about someone that runs a coal mine? Of course not. It's in the very nature of the job that if you take the job, you would be required to do manual labor, and are at risk for developing back problems.&nbsp;</p> <p>Listen to the episode, and share it with your friends!</p> <p><a href="">Support the podcast.</a> $5 a month from each of you can offset our marketing budget, allowing us to bring more liberty to the masses.&nbsp;</p> <p>Thanks,&nbsp;</p> <p>Nate &amp; Charlie</p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>

If the Middle Class is shrinking.. Where are th...
Today on the show: Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are fond of mentioning that the "Middle Class is shrinking." Of course, they bet on their supporters choosing not to look at where they are going. The data are in. People are moving into the Upper Class at an amazing rate. From Over the past forty years, for example, the proportion of households making less than $50,000 per year has continued to decline. The percentage of households with incomes under $50,000 fell from 49.5 percent to 39.9 percent, from 1969 to 2018. It's true that households in the $50,000 to $100,000 range also went down, dropping from 38.2 percent to 29.7 percent over the same period. But where did those people go? They weren't going into the under-$50,000 group because that group was shrinking. In fact, there are now more households in the over-$100,000 than in the $50,000-$100,000 category. The idea that Bernie and Warren are trying to drill into their followers heads is that people are slipping out of the middle class and falling into the lower class. This of course supports their assertion that the almighty U.S. government should step in and redistribute the wealth more evenly. --- Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>

<p><a href="" rel="noopener" target="_top"><u>Podcast Notes 11/6/19</u></a></p> <p>On <a href="" rel="noopener" target="_top"><u>today's episode</u></a> we talked about a few main issues:</p> <ul> <li>Elizabeth Warren might "halve" the Stock Market<br> <br> </li> <li>Women are starting their own businesses at an amazing rate<br> <br> </li> <li>Apple is entering the affordable housing market<br> <br> </li> <li>UK's NHS is experiencing drastic wait times for patients<br> <br> </li> </ul> <p>We've stated this in several "opinion" pieces before, but now stock market analysts are weighing in on the left's terrible tax strategies. Anthony Scaramucci weighed in with Yahoo Finance on the notion that Warren's Wealth Tax, Stock Trade Tax, and Net Investment Income tax are going to be detrimental to the US Stock Market. Scaramucci stated that the market is likely to be cut in half if Warren is elected president.</p> <p>Marketwatch noted that women are starting their own "Sidepreneur" companies at an unprecedented rate. One of the major benefits of a side hustle being that you can still keep your normal job, and make money on the side. It's an amazing time to be alive, folks. Starting a business has never been safer or easier.</p> <p>Apple has announced a $2.5 billion investment into housing in California. Over the past 15 years, California experienced a housing shortage totaling 3.5 million homes. Apple has decided to reinvest in the area they call home. Offering financing to first-time home buyers, and low income individuals. Thank you, Capitalism. The biggest benefit is the fact that this money is value backed, not debt or printed money like what would usually come from such programs offered by the government.</p> <p>Finally, we discussed a <a href="" rel="noopener" target="_top"><u>story from Fox News</u></a> noting historic healthcare wait times in the UK.</p> <blockquote>The <a href="" rel="noopener" target="_blank">report</a>&nbsp;on the government-run NHS system in England, released last month, details&nbsp;increased wait times for services ranging from emergency room visits&nbsp;to cancer care.&nbsp;And the study reports historic waiting lists totaling over 4.5 million people, up 40 percent in five years, for treatment with specialists.<br> </blockquote> <blockquote>"Cancer waiting times are the worst on record," the report also declares.<br> </blockquote> <p>Turns out that everything being "free" comes with a price. The price? Long wait times, and sub-standard care. This is basic economics, people. You mandate that healthcare has to be expensive through regulations, and then you mandate that the prices be controlled through regulations. This has equalled less people entering the market for healthcare services, including Pharma companies, Doctors, and Nurses. Plans like Warren and Sanders' "Medicare for All" is destined to bring the same sub-standard care to the US.</p> <p>Listen to the podcast episode at this <a href="" rel="noopener" target="_top"><u>link.&nbsp;</u></a></p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>

Krispy Kreme stops man from reselling donuts, r...
<p>Podcast Notes from 11/5/19 - Listen at this <a href="" rel="noopener" target="_top"><u>link.&nbsp;</u></a></p> <p>Today we talked about several headlines found in the news over the last few days.</p> <p>We started with Trump losing the appeal to keep his tax returns away from the public's eyes.</p> <p>I, for one, simply do not care what comes out in Trump's tax returns. He could have been dodging taxation his whole life and my response would be "Good for him. I wish I could do that, too." I can't help but think that this is yet another witch hunt focused on finding ways to demonize the president before next years election. If it were say, Barack Obama, I doubt those on the left would be raising such a fuss about the president not wanting to disclose his tax returns. Likewise, it's important that we remain principled. What would republicans be saying if Obama were refusing to disclose his tax returns? I doubt they would be fighting for Obama's privacy in the matter.</p> <p>Also mentioned were two stories: One noting Oklahoma's release of nearly 500 prisoners that had been previously convicted of drug crimes, and another mentioning the recent raid in California resulting in the the finding of $1.5 billion in illegal marijuana grows.</p> <p>First off, good for Oklahoma. Similar to Alcohol, Caffeine, Nicotine, and Sugar, drugs are bad. However, that does not automatically mean that the government has any business in dictating what people can and cannot do to their own bodies. If you are truly free, then surely that freedom extends to your right to harm your own body. I doubt that putting drug addicted citizens in prison is the best course for rehabilitation.</p> <p>Second, let's talk about this seizure of illegally grown marijuana in California. It's interesting to me that it's now legal to smoke in California, yet you still have to garner a license from the government to be allowed to grow. Unfortunately, if you think state legalization means an end to the failed drug war, then you will be sorely disappointed. The drug war is still on, only now the war is focused on those growing plants without the governments permission.</p> <p>Now we land on Krispy Kreme. Last week, Krispy Kreme ordered a man to "cease" and "desist" his operation, in which he would drive four hours to the closest Krispy Kreme location, and bring upwards of 100 boxes of sugary goodness to the people of his community for resale. The man was using the money to pay for his college education.</p> <p>Like many others, I was upset with Krispy Kreme for telling the man to stop reselling the donuts. He purchased them at full-price from the store. Where's the problem? The people were aware that they were paying a higher rate for the donuts, and I'm fairly certain they were also aware that they were not in fact purchasing them at a Krispy Kreme location.</p> <p>Luckily, the free market moves faster than the government. After social media backlash, Krispy Kreme reversed their stance and also donated 500 donuts to the young entrepreneur. Can you imagine the government moving this quickly? No. It would have taken years, if ever. That's the beauty of free market capitalism in the era of social media.</p> <p>Thanks for listening to the podcast.

Bernie lies again. Should Twitter or Facebook c...
<p>Bernie Sanders is at it again, again. And again, also.&nbsp;</p> <p>On twitter today, Bernie stated that Jeff Bezos' income is "$215 million per day." Okay, Jeff Bezos is in fact worth a lot of money, but does he actually make that much in income? A quick trip to your calculator would tell you that $215 million per day would equal $78 BILLION per year. Maybe that seems possible for the worlds richest person, but it isn't. It just plain isn't. Amazon's gross income in 2018 was $71 billion. So do you honestly think that after "cost of goods sold," they decided to pay Jeff Bezos $78 billion from their $71 billion gross?</p> <p>This is simply what Bernie does. He takes the fact that Amazon's stock has moved up a decent amount in the last few days, determined the market value of Amazon, and then determined how much Jeff Bezos' 18% ownership increased in value over the last few days. By this logic, where were Bernie's tweets about how Bezos "lost" $1.6 billion per day last October? No where to be found because of course, that doesn't fit his agenda.&nbsp;</p> <p>The bulk of Bezos' "worth" comes from his ownership of Amazon. This means that when you say he earned $X-amount, you're talking about the value he earned if he were to in fact sell all of his shares today. Something he hasn't done, meaning that he hasn't technically "earned" this money. If you own stock in any company, you've probably seen the value of your portfolio increase and decrease by substantial amounts over time. On a day where the market is up, does that mean you "earned" what ever the increase was that day? No, because you didn't sell your stocks.&nbsp;</p> <p>There's one other market factor Senator B.S. isn't mentioning. Jeff Bezos' current value of stock might be $100 billion, but he would get no where close to that if he decided to sell his shares on the open market. This would flood the stock market with a supply of shares that it doesn't currently want, meaning the value of those shares would need to decrease to the point that enough people would want to buy his 18% worth of shares. In all actuality, that "$100 billion value" might only get him $50 billion by the time the selloff is finished. That's whats happening when the stock prices is crashing by the way- someone (or a lot of someones) are selling their shares. The market is flooded with supply, and the price drops to the amount that meets the current demand.&nbsp;</p> <p>If you made it through this article you've learned more about the stock market and basic economics than the bulk of Sanders' followers have learned in their lives.&nbsp;</p> <p>This is why we created "<a href=""></a>"</p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>

NCAA reverses position, allowing college player...
<p>Today we had an interesting discussion about the recent decision by the NCAA to allow players to make money from their name, image, and likeness. This is a massive decision from the body which brings in massive amounts of endorsement money from players, although not allowing those players to make money themselves.&nbsp;</p> <p>Overall, we support this move, because you should be free to make money if someone is specifically giving money to use your name towards making profit. Nate and Charlie have a bit of a difference on the issue, which showed through on the podcast.</p> <p><strong>Nates dissent:</strong> <em>I agree that they should be able to make money, but I don't want to ignore the part that the NCAA has to play in the ability for the players to make money. Did they not set up the system that makes the whole thing possible? Is this similar to a business risking and investing, and then the worker being able to demand all (or most) of the reward? I obviously want them to make the money, I'm just recognizing the fact that the NCAA does have an argument in wanting a portion of the income from endorsements. It's a complicated issue.&nbsp;</em></p> <p>What will also be amazing to watch is the culture that develops between schools where some students are making millions of dollars per year from their endorsements, while other player (perhaps on. the same team), might be struggling to get by. Yes, that is the free market, I'm just acknowledging that this will be interesting to watch. Especially considering that many college students favor socialism. Let's see how socialist they are when they have the opportunity to make a million times more money than their friends.&nbsp;</p> <p>Read more at <a href=""></a></p> <p>Grab a "Taxation is Theft" t-shirt on our <a href="">merch shop</a></p> <p>Tell your friends!</p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>
