Seriously Mentally Ill

They live on the street, often foraging through dumpsters. Some threaten us. Occasionally, they assault people. Thousands of mentally ill people cycle in and out of hospital emergency rooms. They strain our medical system, scare the public and sometimes harm themselves. Most, says DJ Jaffe, are schizophrenic or bipolar and have stopped taking their medication. […]

Leaving the Left

Watching this video upset me. Students and even faculty members won’t let Dave Rubin speak. They constantly interrupt, shouting “hate speech!” and “black lives matter!” Rubin was once a man of the left. He even was a co-host on The Young Turks network. But then he started a podcast. He did long interviews with people like talk […]

Prices Should Rise

Officials in states hit by Hurricane Florence are on the lookout for “price gouging.” People who engage in “excessive pricing” face up to 30 days jail time, said North Carolina’s attorney general. South Carolina passed a “Price Gouging During Emergency” law that imposes a $1,000 fine per violation. “Gouging” is an issue during every disaster […]

Scooters Outrun Law

I just zipped down a city street on an electric scooter. It cost me 15 cents a minute. Fast and fun! My scooter was just lying on the ground. I picked it up, activated it with my phone and rode away. When I was done, I simply abandoned it. Won’t it be stolen? No, because […]

Judging Kavanaugh

Some people are very angry about President Trump’s new Supreme Court pick. “Hell no, Kavanaugh! He is a dangerous man!” protesters shouted on the steps of the Supreme Court. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand yelled, “What is at stake is freedom for LGBTQ Americans, for equal rights, civil rights…” “They are freaking out because they don’t understand,” […]

Social Media Censorship II

Are those who question the severity of global warming worse than Nazis? I wouldn’t think so, but YouTube, owned by Google, seems to. I wrote last week that YouTube added a Wikipedia link about global warming to videos like ones I do about climate change. Extra information sounds helpful. But when social media platforms only […]

Social Media Trickery

YouTube just added an “information panel” to all my videos about climate change. We at Stossel TV do weekly videos on many controversial topics, but apparently YouTube thinks climate change is special. The information panel seems benign — just a link to a Wikipedia page about global warming — and YouTube puts it on all climate […]

Social Security Fails

Social Security is running out of money. You may not believe that, but it’s a fact. That FICA money taken from your paycheck was not saved for you in a “trust fund.” Politicians misled us. They spent every penny the moment it came in. This started as soon as they created Social Security. They assumed […]

Ignorant Sanders

Sen. Bernie Sanders is all over the internet! New York Magazine says he is “quietly building a digital media empire.” Mic.com calls it “one of the most powerful progressive media outfits in America.” This matters because bettors rank Sanders one of the top four Democratic presidential contenders. I resent Sanders’ “empire” because it pushes bad ideas, yet […]

Working for Tips

Union protestors and celebrity advocates have decided that waiters’ tips aren’t big enough. They are upset that in 43 states, tipped workers can be paid a lower minimum wage, as low as $2.13 an hour. Not fair! say celebrities like Jane Fonda, who recorded commercials saying, “That’s barely enough to buy a large cup of […]
