The Democratic Party has made “income inequality” a signature issue for the 2014 (and, presumably, 2016) election cycle. Democrats, en masse, shout “J’accuse!” at Republicans. There is a very different story to tell.
“Income inequality” is a crude, and twisted, heuristic for stagnant median family income. “Income [...]
We had some inordinately interesting recent Congressional testimony from David L. Hunt – the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’s Inspector General (IG).
IG Hunt appeared on Wednesday, September 17 before the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology. The topic? “Oversight of FCC Budget and Management.”
It is funny seeing all these losers protesting for higher wages. Because big brother keeps shelling out all this money, they just think everyone has money to shell out. At least that is what commie’s like Obama and Hillary want them to think.
But I have the [...]
It is better to be feared than to be loved.
I’m not interested in preserving the status quo; I want to overthrow it.

This week, President Obama made headlines for his exiting of Marine One in New York when he half-saluted a saluting marine while holding a Styrofoam cup in his right hand. The controversy stems from military protocol which states one should not salute while holding an object in [...]
Back when Eric Holder was nominated for Attorney General of the United States a non-attorney acquaintance asked me for my opinion of the appointment. Did I think he would be a good man for the job? My reply, took them rather aback. Holder, I said, was absolutely the wrong man for the job. I cited [...]
Eric Holder, perhaps the most anti-gun Attorney General ever, announced this morning that he will be stepping down from the position. Many Americans believe he covered up criminal actions by the Obama administration. A longtime employee of the Justice Department said Holder had “radicalized and radicalized” the [...]
So I take it Rand Paul opposes arming the Syrian opposition, but supports US air strikes against ISIS. Fortunately, his libertarian fans see through his blatant difference splitting and are not happy about it. The linked article describes Rand’s weaseling but otherwise is a typical Daily Beast snarkfest.
On Thursday afternoon, Paul took the Senate [...]
Alexandria Kincaid is a former elected District Attorney and now an attorney in private practice with a Second Amendment practice in Idaho and Oregon. As a DA, she visited homicide scenes to [...]
As we approach the general elections here in the United States, corrupt Democratic establishment politicians are going all out to retain their grip on power and prevent the Republican Party from regaining control of the Senate. They’re spending millions of dollars on negative and dishonest TV advertisements filled with outright lies and stupid allegations in [...]
It is a good thing the Scots voted against independence from England. The movement was not about freedom, but about increasing socialism. Both the UK Socialist and Green Parties, along with other left-wing parties, supported the referendum; the Conservative Party (Tories) and right wing UKIP opposed it. [...]
TODAYS FILM CHOICE
“All the Real Girls” …featuring “New Girl’s” Zooey Deschenal in first starring role
WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Filmed way back in 2008, it’s about young love gone very wrong
But its maudlin story-line is redeemed by superb camera work; a tear-soaked naturalism; & its haunting musical score.
From my perspective, it’s certainly worth [...]
Man is a territorial animal. A consequence is mass murder that proves that pacifism, meant as an antidote for aggression, facilitates bloodshed. If land is involved, leaders and peoples tend to lose their rationality and their moral compass of decency.
Most conflicts are about claims [...]

The Tax Revolt has run its course. A Money Revolt is needed.
Steve Forbes, with Elizabeth Ames, in Money: How the Destruction of the Dollar Threatens the Global Economy—and What We Can Do About It has thought the issues through. So has, among others, Lewis E. [...]
Government growth is a self-perpetuating and self-fulfilling prophecy.
Government is just another organism. Like any organism, its first instinct is self-preservation. Government – and its remora advocates – marshals all their forces should anyone suggest any program be reduced even slightly. [...]
Two generations ago, back when Gamal Abdel Nasser stirred the hearts of third world nationalists all over the globe, there was a term that gained widespread currency: Pan Arabism.
Pan Arabism was the idea the Arab world could be united around a set of common interests and [...]
Just like Bill Clinton, what is obvious to everyone else, seems to baffle Obama. ISIS is the latest, greatest bully of Islam. So much a bully that as hard as Obama has tried to marginalize them, they keep bouncing back. Even I cringe now to hear him [...]
In 1990, evolutionist Tim Berra used the “evolution” of Corvette models as an apt analogy to describe the existing fossil record and to defend the [...]
Cronyism. Or Crony Capitalism. It’s actually Crony Socialism – because it actually has nothing to do with capitalism.
Crony Socialism is not an unfettered free market where the best ideas and companies win. It’s the government warping and distorting the market: favoring with absurdly [...]
We could go in a lot of different directions here. Opposites attract, same poles repel. But the Democrats have a great PR program on the internet. They will send you an email for just about any reason. I get emails from Lady Michelle, BO and even the [...]
One major criticism of U.S. health care is that we spend more money on health care than any other country. If health spending consumes resources that are needed elsewhere, this could be a problem. The U.S. now spends about 17 percent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) [...]
