Every time you see a product being sold as “green,” and therefore supposedly safer for the environment, you can be sure that it is more expensive than a comparable product that does the same thing

I was born during the Great Depression of the 1930s and have lived long enough now to find myself in a new one.

Need a reminder? Here are a few:

These are truly extraordinary times. With every passing day, we are witnessing what can only be called the People versus the Government. The distrust and disdain Americans of all political persuasions feel toward the White House and Congress is extraordinary.
