South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy questioning IRS commissioner, Doug Shulman
It is a fact that every politician and head of state has 2 responsibilities, and 2 responsibilities only; to get in power and stay in power. That is the only explanation as to why they continue to fight for and pass price controls despite the mountains of evidence saying price controls never work and only hurt the people it supposedly helps. The apparent good intentions of the politician Continue reading
It’s early May. Time for colleges and universities all over the country to unleash their best and brightest out into the world. If these young graduates are anything like I was, they’re probably dreading having to sit through their graduation ceremony, despite their school promoting the big guest speaker and telling us to heed their wisdom. I remember our speaker was Mary McAleese, the president of Ireland at that time, speak at ours…That’s about all I remember from her, but I’m sure she very uplifting and probably encouraged us all to make the most of ourselves in the world. Anyway, I wish them all the best of luck in their quest for a career!

I know on this blog I often write about topics dealing with how society could function without government. With a little bit of imagination and critical thinking, it’s not often too difficult to think of situations where the market could find a way to solve the problem.

How would you catch these criminals without government? People could just snatch up a young teenage girl and keep her locked up in the basement for years and years. Continue reading
So I’ve seen that I’ve been e-called out. No, I haven’t been standing naked on my front lawn. I’ve been on a month-long Zumba bender, which has caused blankness in McFloogle’s mind. You wouldn’t believe how good I’ve gotten at shoulder-shakes.
And if you’ve taken notice of our Twitter feed, there’s been some conversation with some readers (I haven’t been completely dead). It’s kind of interesting and I’m going to be writing an article about one of the major flaws in arguing against liberty that my new statist Twitter friends have been using.
Over a month ago, I got a few comments on an article about abortion from someone named “A different perspective” (I’ll call him ADP for now on). He wrote some points that I really wanted to spend time on and I promised him an article as a response within a few days. Well, days turned into weeks. And I now find myself about a month and a half removed from the promised article. Continue reading
You might be wondering why this blog is called “Inside McFloogle’s Mind” and not “Inside Jones’ Mind”. Well it is a little known fact that a guy named Rollo McFloogle actually used to write articles here. We’re not really sure what happened to him, but I think it is safe to assume he is standing naked on his front lawn. If you happen to see him, please ask him to check in at the blog.
