Is a Good Guy with a Gun Really a Good Guy?

A good guy (or girl) with a gun will stop a bad guy with a gun. It happens quite a lot, but isn’t often reported on.

However, many otherwise well meaning liberals simply don’t agree with this premise. Mostly because of the echo-chambers they live in. No one they know owns guns and they’ve been taught that, without exception, guns are bad, and only bad come from owning a gun.

But Will Witt was brave enough to venture out into the city of Pasadena, California to speak to liberals about the “good guy with a gun” statement.

It all begins rather predictably, as the interviewers all agree that guns have no place in society – that there are no good guys with guns.

But when presented with a scenario or two, most of the liberals, having never heard a reasoned argument from the right, began to rethink their positions.

Seeing them begin to question their own beliefs about guns is fascinating and shows that speaking with liberals one on one, without the “mob” distraction, can actually be quite constructive.

Canadian Healthcare Ain’t Great

by: Brent Smith

With America currently in the grip of coronavirus madness, healthcare is again front and center.

Will there be a treatment? How long will it take to develop and once it is, how long will the wait be for the administration of it once it is available?

Well, it may all depend on what country you reside in.

Many in America, especially leftists, complain about the American healthcare system. They would prefer something like, for example the Canadian system, where everyone is covered, its all free and it’s far superior to the American system.

So once a vaccine is produced, let’s all run across the border to Canada, because Canadian healthcare is great!

Or is it?

French-Canadian entrepreneur Alain Lambert has a different take on it – and it’s not quite as rosy.

Women Should Prefer Capitalism to Socialism

Socialism is great, we are told – democratic socialism, that is. Like there’s a difference. And the youth of America has really taken a shine to it.

On the flip side – we always hear that greedy capitalism hurts not only the poor, but the young. And it is said that capitalism hurts women and minorities most.

But does it really. Is socialism really the answer to the problems of opportunity and equality, especially for women?

Carrie Lukas, President of Independent Women’s Forum says clearly no. In the following Prager University video, Carrie proves that socialism does the opposite of what it claims. read more

Should Our War Machine win the Peace Prize?

Should the greatest weapon of war ever known to man be worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize. The knee-jerk reaction is NO – of course not.

But the American military is the greatest weapon war the world has ever known. And Fox News host, and veteran Army Major, Pete Hegseth, explains that thanks to the United States military, the world has remained a much more “peaceful” place.

Cultural Appropriation vs Reality

After watching the following Prager University video, you should come away with one thing stark realization – the “Woke” stand against cultural appropriation is all bull crap.

Will Witt is out and about, again on another college campus – this time adorned is his Halloween attire – a Chinese coolie outfit. Perpetually offended students hurled f-bombs and other expletives at Will as they demonstrated their sensitivity superiority.

Then Will, wearing the same outfit, bravely ventured into the heart of Chinatown and discovered something odd. Not a single soul was the least bit offended and many said they liked the outfit. Fascinating.

Maybe the Chinese in Chinatown are just too stupid to know they are being wrongly appropriated, or even know what it means, because they have a life.

Time Yet for the Flat Tax?

Taxes have become a big issue again in this election season. Every democrat on the ballet has a least one or two wacky schemes they claim are free. Free college, free healthcare, etc. But when pressed, they have to admit that taxes will be drastically raised to pay for for these plans.

And the reason they can get away with it is our progressive tax system.

I’ve been a proponent of the Steve Forbes Flat tax plan for decades. I even supported him in 1996 when he ran for president. One of my sons and I even met him on the campaign trail and had an hour-long conversation with him. very smart man.

It was then that I first heard of his flat tax idea, as he explained it to me in detail.

Well., he’s still pushing it and like then, it’s still a great idea.

Prager University thought so, as they asked Mr. Forbes to expound upon it for one of their famous short videos: read more

What to do About the National Debt

Brian Riedl for Prager University discusses the national debt – the fact that every year, like clockwork, it continues to grow.

No matter who is in the White House or who controls Congress and the Senate doesn’t seem to matter at all. Deficit spending continues to grow and the national debt continues to balloon.

And no one seems to care. read more

Truth is No Longer Reality

If you’ve ever spoken at length to a liberal, no doubt this has come up. It’s a relatively term, known as speaking one’s truth. Oh, it doesn’t have to be “the truth.” It rarely is. But somehow, that no longer seems to matter. I’ve personally been told that there is my truth, your truth and the truth.

There’s a head-scratcher!

Philosophy professor Paul Copan, for Prager University, discusses this very topic in the following video: read more

Got Socialism?

America found out long before we were a nation that socialism is an abject failure. In fact we had to discover it twice, the epic failure of socialism. First at Jamestown and then at the Plymouth colony. They found out the hard way. If not for capitalism, America may never have come into being.

But don’t take my word for it. History professor Larry Schweikart, for Prager University, gives a brief but concise accounting of pitfalls of socialism.

We’re Doomed if These Kids Represent the Next Generation

Will Witt for Prager University visited Cal State University – Northridge. He set up a table on campus and asked student passers-by to rank five figures throughout history from what they consider best to worst.

And the results, save for one or two, were catastrophically bad. Among the figures were of course Donald Trump, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The kids were at least able to identify them. Yet many college aged kids could not identify Hitler, Stalin or Jesus. read more
