Straight Talk


My Crazy Aunt Ida

Let’s take a break from all of the political mudslinging for a few minutes. Let me tell you the story of one of the most amazing characters to be found in the branches of the Wood family tree. I think you’ll enjoy it. And you may even learn something about wealth that thieves cannot steal and moths and rust cannot corrupt. Read on for a fascinating tale… 

Honoring Our Country’s Flag

Do you live in a community of flag flyers?  I’m happy to say that I do. Several of my neighbors fly the Stars and Stripes proudly every day of the year. My immediate neighbor has his up shortly after dawn and takes it down solemnly every night at dusk. Read this article to learn some flag etiquette and why you should fly the flag… 

The Government’s War on Us

In my Straight Talk column two weeks ago I said that Daily Wealth gives more genuinely valuable contrarian investment advice than any other website I know of. That’s still true. But what I should have added is that every once in a while you’ll get some political commentary that is so right-on-the-mark you’ll wish you had said it first. Read this article for one example… 

The War at Home

In researching another topic, I stumbled across a column I wrote three years ago. That was back in the days before Personal Liberty Alerts started sending my musings to more than 500,000 people every week. No, in the fall of 2007 I had just 1,000 or 2,000 readers, most of them were probably named Wood. So the column below didn’t reach very many people. Read on to learn about the war at home… 

What Websites Do You Read?

In response to hundreds of reader inquiries—well, at least three—I’m going to devote this week’s column to describing some of the other websites I read every week. If some in the list below are new to you I hope you’ll check them out. You may find yet another “must read” columnist you’ll want to check out every week… 

How Capitalism Will Save Us

I’d like to take credit for the title of today’s column but I can’t. It comes from my favorite American capitalist, Steve Forbes. It was the title of a speech he gave at the huge gathering of 2,000 stubborn individualists at FreedomFest last month. And it is also, not so coincidentally, the title of his latest book, which I hope you’ll read. Read this article for a lesson on capitalism from Steve Forbes… 

Don’t Believe This Liberal Lie

Well, that resolution didn’t last long. Last week I wrote that it was a waste of time to argue with liberals and I wasn’t going to do it anymore. Read this article to learn what prompted Geopolitical Editor Chip Wood to go back on his vow… 

Farewell To The Penny Angel

Is the lowly penny on its way out? It seems the call to do away with the 1-cent piece is growing louder, and Geopolitical Editor Chip Wood, for one, would hate to see it go the way of the dodo bird and the gold-backed dollar. Read this article for a story about the Penny Angel and why Chip doesn’t want the penny to disappear… 

Farewell To The King Of Pork

There’s been a lot written over the past 12 days about the death of Robert Byrd, the so-called “last lion of the Senate.” But the West Virginia senator was no lion despite all the accolades that have been heaped on him since his death. He was a pig. Read this article to learn more about the King of Pork… 

Watching ACORN Get Chopped Down

The German word “schadenfreude” translates roughly as “taking pleasure in the misfortune of others.” Now the Association for Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is under scrutiny after video tape showed ACORN employees offering advice to a man and woman posing as a pimp and prostitute on how to skirt state and federal laws. Geopolitical Editor Chip Wood is now watching ACORN get its come-uppance, and he’s enjoying it.
