The Biggest Threat To Our Country

In my view, the most dangerous threat to our safety and security is not the possibility of being invaded by another country, terrorist actions by any of the world’s radical elements, climate change or even nuclear war. Instead, the greatest threat facing the safety of our country is a weak national economy. Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome and the Ottoman Empire were really not conquered by external forces.

UC Irvine Is Committed

Years ago, 23 men committed offenses that resulted in their eventually being committed to R.J. Donovan Correctional Facility, which is a state prison for men in San Diego near the Mexican border. But now those men have received their Bachelor’s Degree from the University of California at Irvine! Amazingly, they have graduated from a major university while incarcerated! How did this happen?

Too Much Government

The June 12, 2024 edition of the Orange County Register told us that the State of California has more than 220,000 full-time employees!~ Of course, that is in addition to hundreds of thousands of government employees at the municipal level, as well as many more who are employed by California’s “Special Districts” like water, transit, mosquito control and sanitation.

Wasteful Federal Programs

Thomas Jefferson was quoted as saying that “We need a revolution every 20 years just to keep the government honest.” He is right, and we now in many ways have a “dishonest” government to prove it. How can I say that? Because without that revolution (which does not have to be bloody) government continues to grow and to serve itself at the expense of “We the People.”

Monthly Stipends vs. The Welfare System

People are beginning to think about and discuss incentives! Good! At last! Why is that? Because, as one of my true heroes Dr. Milton Friedman often said, “Incentives matter!” To explain further, he also said, “You get more of what you subsidize and less of what you tax.” And today we are subsidizing victimization and taxing performance.
