Free Market Swoops in to Pick Up Where Gov’t Shutdown Left Off

And we mean LITERALLY “pick up”.

Published

free market

By nature, the idea of a federal government is both bizarre and terrifying, despite our current conditioning.

You see, the idea that the God-given rights of humanity should somehow be mitigated by elected officials is already worrisome.  But when you end up with a ruling class as opposed to public servants, you wind up with something resembling slavery – if we’re being blunt about it.

In the United States, our federal government in undeniably out of control and has been for decades…if not longer.  We elect officials who begin their careers as starry-eyed idealists, and wind up living in the guttural world of lobbyists and influence peddlers the moment that their constituents finally catch a clue as to the hoodwinking they’ve been a victim of.  This has led more than a few Americans to lean libertarian in the 21st century, understanding now more than ever that their freedoms are being wholly trampled by those we are supposed to trust with our lives.

And, as if to prove the point that our government has grown to an unfathomable size, even a partial government shutdown has left our National Parks covered in trash.

Cue the free market to fix the problem.

Nearly three weeks into the government shutdown, some of America’s national parks are starting to get a bit rank. Access is free, since there are no employees to collect the typical $35-per-vehicle entrance fees, but that comes with the trade-off of there being no employees to empty trash bins or clean toilets either.

But at Yellowstone National Park, National Public Radio reports, local businesses are chipping in to make sure the bathrooms get cleaned, the roads get plowed, and the tourists keep coming. Even in the middle of winter, the park gets an estimated 20,000 visitors per month—and those hardy folks want to rent snowmobiles, hire tour guides, and take sightseeing trips. The private-sector businesses that thrive on those tourist dollars have a pretty strong incentive to make sure Yellowstone remains accessible.

Xanterra Parks and Resorts, which runs the only hotels inside Yellowstone that remain open during the winter, is leading the effort to cover the $7,500 daily tab for keeping the roads plowed and the snowmobile trails groomed during the shutdown, according to NPR. Thirteen other private businesses that offer tours of the park are chipping in $300 a day to help cover that expense.

Meanwhile, Xanterra has some of its own employees assigned to clean park bathrooms during the shutdown, and snowmobile tour guides are packing their own toilet paper for customers to use.

I believe I remember a grade school song about the relationship between the free market and the government shutdown, including the line “everything you can do, I can do better”.

Joe Biden Gets Creamed For His Non-Apology For Remarks About Black Community

Published

on

If you’re a person working for the Joe Biden presidential campaign right now, you have to be subsisting on a steady diet of Xanax in order to deal with the stress this man causes by simply opening up his mouth and spouting forth all kinds of nonsense. Is it any wonder that folks on the left are so desperate to keep Biden out of the public eye? Clearly, there are some serious mental health issues happening with this man, possibly something like dementia, but they are pushing him forward anyway. Lots of reasons exists for doing that, but regardless, it’s brutal to watch. Biden recently made a statement that essentially said all black people think the same and Latino people have diversity of thought. This didn’t go over well for obvious reasons. The former vice president then made an apology for the statement, but it was horrible too, so now he’s getting creamed for that too. via The Daily Wire: “Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities that I want to clarify. In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “Throughout my career I’ve witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community. It’s this diversity that makes our workplaces, communities, and country a better place.” Biden added, “My commitment to you is this: I will always listen, I will never stop fighting for the African American community and I will never stop fighting for a more equitable future.” Early on Thursday, Biden said during an interview, “What you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an…

Rioters Once Again Charge Into Portland Suburb; Drench Elderly Woman In Paint

Published

on

Rioters — oops, I mean, “peaceful protesters” — once again stormed a Portland suburb, this time opting to set their sights on harassing elderly counter protesters by tossing paint all over them among many other heinous deeds. Folks, there’s nothing peaceful about these people. It’s clear they are not interested in trying to win people over to their point of view. They want to force you to comply with their sick and twisted vision for the future of this country and if you resist, you will be beaten into submission. via The Daily Wire: Once again, the Portland Police Department was forced to declare a supposed protest an “unlawful assembly” after assessing that the intent of the rioters was “to vandalize or attempt to burn down the precinct.” The Portland Police Department tweeted out a photo of the elderly woman whom the rioters doused with paint and noted in a subsequent tweet that they incorrectly stated that she was the woman using a walker, when in fact it was another elderly woman who was present. https://twitter.com/PortlandPolice/status/1291602683267178502 Portland Tribune reporter Zane Sparling took videos of the incident that showed the rioters aggressively confronting the two women and showed the woman covered in paint. https://twitter.com/PDXzane/status/1291597748366528512 https://twitter.com/PDXzane/status/1291597626714886144 Journalist Andy Ngo, who has had his fair share of violent run-ins with the terrorists in Antifa, took the time on Twitter to highlight the hostility being displayed toward the two women from these miscreants. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1291605805167386624 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1291607302848438272 How much more of this insanity is going to be allowed to continue unchecked by Democratic leadership in Portland? It’s time to step up to the plate and shut these people down and restore law and order. If that means requiring help from federal resources, so be it. We just cannot allow this kind of violence to continue and…
