The Left is in a perpetual state of anti-free market angst. Even the barest inkling of private sector activity drives them bananas. They want to stop it – and if they can’t, they try to retard it as much as possible.
Their main impediment agent is [...]
If you’ve ever wondered how the United States got in to its current mess of a stagnant economy and out-of-control government, I have a suggestion. Take a good look at what a handful of voters in one of America’s finer suburbs did to themselves and the rest [...]
Minimum wage is like the birth control issue. It sounds good. May even feel good but it makes no sense and it is not worth it. And Fluke said she didn’t need it!
Obama has no business sense and he has proven that over and over [...]
“Completing this form is a critical start to completing your education,” noted First Lady Michelle Obama. It was a Wednesday in February, and she had traveled from the confines of the White House to a nearby Virginia high school to lecture students on applying for “free” federal [...]
The cinematic classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” made the broader public aware of the greatness that is Ben Stein. Already a lawyer and speechwriter for Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, Stein was cast as the atonal Economics teacher droning his students into stupor.
Stein was [...]
Congress is on the verge of extruding a new five-year farm bill. President Barack Obama says he will sign it.
As has each and every farm bill for coming up on eighty years:
This Farm Bill Stinks
Indeed it does.
Congress Seeks to [...]
One unmentioned irony of the Chris Christie road-revenge scandal is that the powers-that-be finally found a traffic jam they didn’t like. Now, don’t get me wrong, having always lived in the NY metropolitan area and often having wanted to split a vein while in the midst of [...]
Our Congress may be on the verge of extruding yet another terrible farm bill. Which has been for seventy or so years a Government-Knows-Best train wreck. To alter slightly Ronald Reagan’s line:
Government’s view of the (farm) economy could be summed up in a few short [...]
Many hands are being wrung among the elite governing class about Congressional gridlock. The Democrats have invoked the “nuclear option” — allowing the Senate majority in effect to prevail by simple, rather than 60%, majority. (This will come back to haunt them if majority control turns Republican in next year’s election.)
Fortunately for us mere [...]
“We’re #1” is not something you chant when you have the world’s highest corporate tax rate. Unless you are doing so sarcastically — or you want to punish businesses for … well, being in business.
Yet that is where the United States currently stands. We impose the highest corporate tax rate on the planet [...]
In 2010 millions of American tea-party constitutionalists, to include the GOP’s Christian base, united in a remarkable grass-roots effort to rein in our unbridled federal government and return it to its expressly limited constitutional confines. As a result, an unprecedented number of counter-constitutionalist lawmakers (read: liberal Democrats) were swept from office.
The Obama administration wasn’t [...]
President Barack Obama recently uttered one of the most frustrating, angering and mind-numbingly uninformed things ever extruded by a government official.
ObamaCare is in the midst of its gi-normous, historic, inevitable fail – taking down with it the entire health insurance industry and large swaths of [...]
For you young conservatives, the first five years of the Obama presidency must have seemed like a lifetime, with the prospect of three more a thought almost too awful to bear. And it’s not hard to see why. It’s not just the lies behind Obamacare that rankle, [...]
Public intellectual Paul Krugman recently consigned to Hell, in a New York Times op-ed column entitled A Permanent Slump, the world economy.
[W]hat if the world we’ve been living in for the past five years is the new normal? What if depression-like conditions are on [...]
The Ryan-Murray budget agreement has certainly provoked some sharp disagreement on the right flank of the conservative blogosphere. Actually, the agreement represents a true compromise in that each side achieved part of some of its aims, and both sides abandoned (if only temporarily) many of their desired [...]
Will replacing one government entity with another actually improve the mortgage markets? If politicians retain control over our wealth, they will most always find a way to use it for their own selfish purposes.
Congressional Democrats are reeling from Obamacare, Republicans are caving-in to President Obama’s budgetary demands, and the First Lady is emotionally [...]
