“Blame Rental Crisis On Gov’t”

By Bradley Harrington

Published in the Wyoming Tribune Eagle on July 25, 2014

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there'd be a shortage of sand." - Milton Friedman, "Capitalism and Freedom," 1962 -

Those who understand free markets are always leery of government intervention because they know that one set of controls creates dislocations that breed further controls.

Proudly, Without Resolve

by Jason Gay

While little can be said in support of the U.S. strategy in Vietnam from 1950 – 1975, during the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, and Ford administrations, it is clear that there was no similar war to look back on for historical context. From Truman’s decision to send military advisors through the fall of Saigon, the U.S. military found itself constantly hampered by parameters defined by a political unwillingness to either engage in a declared war or to simply abstain from involvement.

Winter Showdown

by Jason Gay

Earlier this month the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) told us to expect a warmer winter in most of the country. Most of Wyoming is supposed to expect warmer than normal weather with a greater than 33 percent chance, while the southeastern part of the state has equal chances of a cooler or warmer than normal winter. Of course, that is if you trust the NOAA’s predictions.

Time for Welfare Reform 2.0

A new Cato Institute report estimates the total cost of the so called “War on Poverty” to $19 trillion over 50 years. That is more than the total cost of national defense during the same period of time.

The authors of the report, Michael Tanner and Charles Hughes, note that the federal and state spending programs that constitute the “War on Poverty” are so inefficient that it is almost impossible to measure any marginal effect at all from all the money being spent.

It’s ISIL, not ISIS

by Jason Gay

Although it might seem petty, it is important to understand why the name of this particular terrorist organization is of concern. As it turns out, the name helps us understand the mission of the organization.

Formed in 1999 as Jama’at al Tawhid wal-Jihad (Group of Monotheism and Jihad), the group had a tendency to focus on local enemies as well as Western enemies—especially the U.S. Beyond attacking the U.S. during Desert Storm, they also bombed several regional targets such as the Jordanian embassy, killing 17 and wounding 40, and a mosque, killing 85 and wounding 500.

Return to Iraq

by Jason Gay

Contrary to common understanding, the New York Time’s article on chemical weapons in Iraq did not expose new information; although it did expose a new scale. The NYT printed a discussion of the effects of chemical weapons on U.S. service members which, coincidentally, points out the location of these munitions fall largely within the area now controlled by ISIL—the “Islamic State.” The article overtly acknowledges that weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) were found—these include chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear weapons.

Big Government Still Problem in Wyoming

In a recent interview with Wyoming Public News, Governor Mead and his Democratic challenger, Peter Gosar, both expressed concern over the need for further diversification of the Wyoming economy. That is already happening, as recent jobs data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicate: almost every industry in our state is hiring more people, except natural resources.
