The MYTH of ECONOMIC GROWTH in the Age of BIG Government

Forcing employers to do business within the ever-narrowing confines of acceptable conduct that is established at the whim of politicians and demanding that employers police the business’s compliance with an ever-growing set of rules and performance criteria–as interpreted by government bureaucratic fiat–should henceforth be considered to be an impossible standard for employers to meet. WHENEVER YOU HEAR THAT THE ECONOMY IS GROWING UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A VERY BIG LIE. Hiring an attorney to help navigate a regulatory minefield or hiring a Compliance Officer to satisfy the requirements of a heavy-handed government edict is not growth. It is not a sign of economic growth whether the government hires 1,000 or 10,000 IRS agents to collect a new tax or businesses hire thousands of accountants to avoid it or calculate, collect and remit it. Economic growth does not arise from printing money to manufacture filing cabinets full of public-funded global warming junk science.

We have to ask ourselves, are we doing the right thing? Or are we using scientific information to do the wrong thing more precisely? ~Roger Pulwarty

Hot World Syndrome—fear of a hotter, more intimidating world than it actually is prompting a desire for more protection than is warranted by any actual threat. A Chance Meeting– We toured south along the Bicentennial Bike Trail in the Summer of 1980, working up appetites covering ~70 miles per day and staying at hiker/biker campgrounds at night along the Oregon/California coast (they were 50¢ a day at that time). The day's ride over, and after setting up tents, hitting the showers, and making a run to a close-by store, it was time to relax. The third in our little bicycle tour group, Tom, was about 30 yards away conversing with another knot of riders and treating himself to an entire cheesecake for dinner. He probably figured Jim and I would joke about what a pig he was eating that whole pie and decided to eat among strangers. Three hours later after sharing stories and remarking on a few coincidences that turned up here and there, Tom and one of the former strangers realized they were cousins, meeting in this most unlikely place for the first time. ~Mac
