This year’s keynote speaker at our ATF Party, David Martosko of the Daily Caller, joined me on my TV show to talk about the demise of traditional media, adults having fun, and the encroaching nanny-state.

David K. Williams, Jr.Despite cries to the contrary, the government has more money than it can reasonably spend. How else can one explain an 18 month criminal investigation of an alleged bookmaking enterprise in Jefferson County? (See “Denver-area spor…

Colorado HB 1351 would limit the interest rates “payday lenders” can charge. The bill made it out of the House, and now moves on to the Senate. Representative Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver, supports the bill. According to the Denver Post (Payday-loan bill passes in House), Rep. Ferarandino said
“This is about the cycle of debt people find themselves in with payday lending. We’re allowing people to overleverage themselves, causing bankruptcies.”
In other words, we are allowing adults to make their own decisions. Rep. Ferrandino and the supporters of this bill believe they are smarter than the patrons of payday lenders, and want to stop these people from exercising their own judgment.
Oppose this bill. Support freedom.

According to Colorado News Agency reporter Debi Brazzale, Kefalas’s legislation HB 1147 will make it a [...]

As the joke goes, ”alcohol, tobacco, and firearms” is a lousy idea for an overbearing government regulatory agency but a great idea for a convenience store. While we Americans are saddled with the former and prohibited (for our own good, of course) from having the latter, that doesn’t stop the Independence Institute from having an annual fundraiser where they enjoyment [...]

The central planning geniuses of the Progressive movement have determined yet another way to protect us from ourselves. To really appreciate this, you’ll need a little background on England and knives. Over many years of “sensible gun control laws”, the Leftist Progressives successfully whittled away a Brit’s rights to own a firearm. Any firearm. Interestingly, [...]

The tentative class schedule is as follows: Saturday, [...]
