Liberal Congressman's Gay Son Comes Out...As A Trump-Supporting Republican

Guy Benson, Townhall

Here we have an interesting 'coming out' tale from a young man whose liberal family was "overjoyed" when he told them he is gay.  The real trouble began, you see, when he started having impure thoughts.  Political thoughts.  Adam Levine is the son of a former Democratic Congressman from southern California.  And now he's telling the world about how he came to realize that he's a conservative, and how his vote for Donald Trump has made him a pariah within the "open minded" circles in which he's operated for most of his life.  Before I start quoting his piece, allow me to disclose that a mutual friend put us in touch, and I helped connect him with the editors of The Federalist, where this essay appears.  And it begins rather provocatively:

I am not a sex offender. But a number of my friends no longer have time to see me. Lifelong acquaintances now regard me with fear and distrust. I have been unfriended en masse on social media and excoriated by friends who deign to remain. And I have been singly excluded from social gatherings when the rest of my family was invited. No, I am not a sex offender. I am something even worse than that. I am a Donald Trump supporter.

4,000 Years Of Price Control

Tablets, said to be 200 years older than the Babylonian Code of Hammurabi ... show that the ancient kingdom of Eshnunna had wage control and price control. The news ought not to have come as a surprise. For the code of Hammurabi itself (unearthed in 1902), which was promulgated earlier than 2000 B.C., fixed prices, wages, interest rates, and fees. This makes price control at least about 4,000 years old. ...

 

Ironically, it is those who now wish to return to this ancient totalitarian device who are fondest of calling themselves “progressives.” They are also fond of saying that those who believe in economic liberty “are living in the nineteenth century.” These controlists have yet to learn that they themselves are still living, as the discoveries in Babylonia attest, in the nineteenth century—B.C.!
