Guess which gender makes more money?

Hong Kong v China – Less Government Is So Obviously Better

Ask Not About Republicans

dmcrtslftA dubious editorial pastime these days involves political progressives offering their suggestions about rescuing the Republican Party from extinction. Of course, one might be suspicious about a political opponent offering constructive advice in the first place, but even if it is sincere, it would just be suggestions […]

Duly Noted - The Enemy? He is Us.

Duly NotedSly totalitarian challengers exploit our liberties that they abhor.

It is a natural inclination to endeavor to assess threats, whether immediate or only discernible to those with a vision. Such calculations are made in terms of the foe’s inclinations, and physical means. These estimates like to […]

Will the Tea Party Lose Again?

With growing disapproval of the Obama administration’s leadership and the increasing popularity of the Tea Party movement within Republican ranks, many observers—myself included—are hopeful and even quite confident that the underdog GOP may make a strong comeback in the upcoming November elections, regaining control of the Senate, further expanding its strength in the House, and […]

Is Islamism a Totalitarian System Like Nazism and Communism?

The concept of a totalitarian state was an invention of the twentieth century. The notion of a state or nation whose government could control virtually all aspects of its citizens’ lives was not conceivable in prior times.

Libertarians Can't Leave Their Love of Toll Roads

Immorality and Radical Secularism: The Two Greatest Threats to Our National Security

To Revive a Phoenix

Liberal BBC Asks, “Is Sport Sexist?” While Promoting Inequality

wmncmptmnssprtsIt long ago became clear to me that, despite all the pretense, protesting and politicking, no one who has ever seriously thought about equality actually believes in it. When making this case, one could point to how Eric Holder’s DOJ is currently suing the Pennsylvania State Police […]

End the Fed’s War on Paychecks

jntylnThe 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.

McDonald’s Bonanza the Sure Way to High Wages

Salutegate

It’s About Time

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?
