Hornberger’s Blog, September 2003

by
Tuesday, September 30, 2003 A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article entitled “Federal Spending Threatens Our Security,” in which I pointed out that uncontrolled federal spending threatens the economic security and well-being of the American people. Since then, the U.S. dollar has taken a severe drop in international markets. An article in the September 29 issue of The Oregonian entitled “Sagging Dollar Poses Threat to Economies,” echoes the warnings that I issued in my article: A slide in the value of the U.S. dollar roiled stock and bond markets last week, a reminder that a dollar crash could devastate the U.S. and global economies…. In recent years, foreigners who buy dollars -- and invest in the United States -- have been an important economic prop.

Ironically, Adolf Hitler ended up adopting the same tactics ...

Wartime Confessions of a Talk-Radio Heretic

by
This speech was given before the Phoenix Economics Group in Phoenix, Arizona on March 19, 2003. I left my radio studio this evening to be here just as President Bush’s ultimatum to Saddam Hussein expired. The bombing of Iraq, which has been going on more or less continuously since 1991, at this hour assumes a new intensity, joined by helicopter gunship attacks, and a ground invasion. A headline in the foreign press—I have after all become accustomed to getting my news from foreign press—screams, “Expecting Iraqi Mothers Rush to Give Birth Before War! Baghdad: The sound of screaming filled the maternity ward at the Elwiyah Hospital on Tuesday, as women rushed to give birth ahead of an impending U.S. invasion. Many pregnant women demanded to have Cesareans rather ...

Morality, the Welfare State, and Freedom

by
THE WELFARE STATE and the regulated society are based on a twofold notion about morality: first, that this type of society reflects that people are moral, caring, compassionate, and responsible and, second, that this type of society makes people moral, caring, compassionate, and responsible. Consider, for example, President Bush’s plan to deliver government funding to faith-based organizations. His belief is ...
