PC has run amok. From Halloween costumes on college campuses to San Francisco where they no longer want to call petty thieves criminals. Don't we have better things to waste our time on? Next, we discuss Estonia, an actual free market experiment that is actually working. Of course this comes as no surprise to you FSN Listeners. The free market always works best in the long run.
The war on healthy mayonnaise has been exposed. Who would think that the government would go after a company making healthy mayonnaise with no eggs? But the Egg Council had them in their crosshairs. There was a concerted effort by Unilever and the US Government to put a company out of business because they made egg-free mayonnaise. I wish I could say that we're surprised by it.
Millennials just don't drive enough or drive gas guzzlers to keep the Highway Trust Fund going. Revenues are way down and they're blaming it on this hapless generation. The real culprit is record low work force participation, which has led to less people driving to work and lower incomes, which has also led to less people driving, period. What's an unemployed Millennial to do? You know this a smoke screen to raise the federal and state gas taxes. It's for the roads of course.
Finally, free electric in Texas. A surplus of wind energy and the lack of connections to the Texas power grid has resulted in a utility giving away electric for free after 9pm. Don't worry about the utility. They're making money a federal tax credit that was unwisely passed to encourage clean energy. You the taxpayer are picking up the tab for this free energy!
