My 500th EarnForex.com News Article

Time flies when you’re having fun…or when you’re working too much.

On Thursday, I wrote my 500th piece for EarnForex.com’s commodities section, titled “Natural Gas Surges 3% After US Supplies Post Smaller-Than-Expected Increase.”

Here is an excerpt:

Natural gas futures are rallying towards the end of the holiday-shortened trading week after the US government reported a smaller-than-expected increase in domestic stockpiles. Natural gas prices surged in May and they could carry that momentum into June.

July natural gas futures rose $0.089, or 3.08%, to $2.974 per million British thermal units (btu) at 14:44 GMT on Thursday on the New York Mercantile Exchange. In May, natural gas surged nearly 8%, bringing its year-to-date gains to a little more than 6%.

According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), domestic natural gas inventories climbed by 96 billion cubic feet for the week ending May 25. The market anticipated an increase of 100 billion cubic feet. Natural gas supplies now total 1.725 trillion cubic feet, down 788 billion cubic feet from the same time a year ago, and 500 billion below the five-year average.

Texit: The Texas Nationalist Movement in the Age of Donald Trump

Texas independence is a movement that has grown from a crowd of a few to a crowd of tens of thousands. Do the secessionist efforts still have some momentum or are they fading in the age of President Donald Trump?

Known as Texit, many people in the state want to secede from the Union, whether a Republican or a Democrat is sitting in the White House or controlling Capitol Hill.

Daniel Miller spoke with me about his new book, Texit: Why and How Texas Will Leave the Union, the overall initiative, and President Trump.

CNS News: Do the Rich Pay Their Fair Share?

For years, you have likely heard anti-poverty activists in your city demand the rich pay their fair share to cover the costs of welfare programs and other government initiatives.

For my first piece at CNSNews.com, I ask the question: do the rich pay their fair share?

Here is an excerpt:

Mark Twain remarked that the only difference between the taxman and a taxidermist is that the latter only takes your skin. A leftist would protest this humorous quote, shrieking that taxes are what we pay for a civilized society. These are typically the obnoxious wails of progressives who routinely demand that the rich need to pay their fair share for more government and to fund their causes and pet projects. Even when the affluent fork over more of their earnings, the left will return to the well and insist for more every time the cupboard is bare.

Despite its progressive nature, the left, like the hippy, pussy hat version of Oliver Twist, is still pleading for more. If you’ve ever seen the rallies led by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), it is apparent that these crowds are hungry for your money.

And they are rushing to the beard-stroking, monocle-wearing, orphan-beating, stick-carrying, coin-counting 1 percent to satisfy their hunger. To justify their kleptomania and to propitiate the socialist gods, instead of booking an appointment with Jordan Peterson, they will prattle on about debunked ideas of income inequality or how the top income earners are moochers.

But do the rich not pay any taxes? They do, and you might be surprised how much they really cover the nation’s tab.

Talking to Robert Wenzel About Private Property Society Theory

The preeminent libertarian thinker Robert Wenzel is out with a new book titled Foundations of Private Property Society Theory: Anarchism for the Civilized Person. It explores a society without the government and only private property. The idea is intriguing and is worth discussing.

Over at LibertyNation.com, I spoke with Wenzel about his book, legendary economist Murray Rothbard, and if conservatives would endorse the concept.
