Ep. 40: BFL Correspondent Havana Great Time in Cuba

The Trump administration recently leaked information that it would reverse the Obama-era rollbacks in regards to relations with Cuba.  This seems to be more of Trump’s “America First” strategy in action.  But what, if anything, will such a reversal accomplish?  The State is masterful at achieving unintended consequences and I’m wondering what will happen when the US reimplements … read more

Ep. 38: Detained and Molested by the TSA

I had another vile encounter with the TSA this week.  To sum it up, I present you with the following 1-question pre-test: TSA Lead Agent Kerry informed me that being forcibly molested in public is authorized by: A) The 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution B) Presidential Executive Order C) My Consent D) All … read more

Ep. 37: The Triumph of the Free Market

This week I’m going to engage the State in an epic battle against the free market.  Ok, ok, “epic” may be a bit of a stretch.  Come on, you know it’s true — the State never had a chance.   Donations for the Martinez and Irwin Families GoFundMe: Mark, Erin and family   Articles Referenced Oil … read more

Ep. 34: United Airlines Flight 3411 — The Whole Story

When United Airlines chose to forcibly remove one of their paying customers from an airplane in Chicago this week, a terrible mistake was made. I think a lot of people agree that the airline could have done a better job of problem solving, and physical removal could have (and should have) been avoided.  But what’s … read more

Ep.31: Milton Friedman Was Wrong

Ok, let’s be honest: on a great many topics, the distinguished economist Milton Friedman was right. Minimum wage? Affirmative Action? He nailed those. And he probably converted countless people to the cause of liberty. For that reason (and others) I think he’s one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century. But he wasn’t … read more

Ep. 19: The TSA is Evil and Stupid, and the Elite are Out of Touch

After a two week hiatus due to intense travel and work schedules, I’m back!  This week I’m discussing the TSA and the horrors through which innocent citizens must go, whenever they travel.  There’s an absurd video interview circulating the interwebs with Michelle Obama that you’ll want to hear.  And finally, I’m going to showcase the … read more

Ep. 11: The State Ruins Healthcare

Over the past three to four years, my family and I have come to loathe healthcare.  No matter what doctor we see, no matter what state we live in, no matter how carefully we discuss the cost, inevitably months later we’re surprised with mysterious bills for services we can’t even remember.  Can you think of … read more

Ep. 7: Silly Electric Vehicles and The EU is Clearly Compensating for Brexit

In this episode, the Libertarian Life segment returns.  In it, I showcase the idiocy of reserved parking spaces for so-called fuel-efficient/low-emissions vehicles.  I bring it all back to Hazlitt’s one lesson and the beautiful consistency that is libertarian political philosophy.  That’s right, I found a way to connect property rights and non-aggression to reserved parking … read more

Ep. 4: Free Market Smashes the Government-Protected Taxi Industry

During my trip to California last week, I had a few chance conversations with professional drivers regarding ride sharing services.  I spoke with a ride share driver and a taxi driver and it turned out they both left a little to be desired in the area of the basic principles of economics.  And while I didn’t … read more

Ep. 3: Freekachu v Bureaupuff

Coming to you from the People’s Republic of California, in this episode the Libertarian Life segment focuses on the latest craze in mobile gaming, Pokemon Go.  I discuss some libertarian themes related to this fad that are hiding in plain sight, just waiting to be discovered.  How could Pokemon Go possibly be related to freedom? … read more
