Perhaps the only thing government loves more than spending our money – is taking it.
The spending has long since passed absurdly astronomical levels. The Feds alone spend about $4 TRILLION a year. Governments in total are spending about 36% of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) – […]
Yet another ongoing government authoritarian problem is the rampant abuse of civil forfeiture. Which is where federal, state and local Leviathans seize personal property of all sorts. Often when someone is merely suspected of – not charged with – a crime. Often when the tie between the […]
By now, the insulting comments by Obamacare advisor and Affordable Care Act designer, Jonathan Gruber, are well known. If you need a primer, read these two articles, or Google it; there’s no shortage of data.
My friend Saurabh Jha, a radiologist of powerful intelligence and wit, thinks […]
There was a recent scandal that, as much as anything else, illustrates the intellectual emptiness and moral ennui of the modern liberal man. It occurred in Britain but reflects a wider phenomenon; what can be said about it can be said about happenings in Sweden, France, Holland, […]
The fall of the Berlin Wall is one of the most significant events of our time and in early November leaders from many nations went to Germany to mark the 25th anniversary. President of the United States Barack Obama did not attend, and that is hardly accidental.
The late, inordinately great Ronald Reagan provided expert analysis of the ridiculous Push-Pull damage wrought by government.
The government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops […]
Well, it happened again: another Republican landslide victory. Can you believe it? In the Louisiana Senate runoff election this past Saturday, December 6, Republican challenger Bill Cassidy soundly defeated Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu, receiving 57 percent of the vote to 43 percent for Landrieu. With this stunning final victory of the 2014 Congressional general elections, […]
The recent breakdown in negotiations with Iran over its nuclear ambitions was, if anything, predictable. It is a problem that exists in the mind of many western diplomats that the other side in a negotiation has the same goal as they do, and therefore, […]
All those that mistakenly entertain the notion that they have not been raped by Bill Cosby, please step forward.
Obama’s dictat to grant amnesty to illegals has its pros and cons. Going beyond these, a question arises: What will happen when the next […]
Race is like gender. As society becomes more equal in those areas, leftist instigators resort to making up conflicts in order to create victim status where there is no longer much left. The Ferguson riots are a classic example. Every day across the country, police officers shoot […]
I would like to share a few of my thoughts about our nation’s current immigration crisis and President Obama’s unprecedented Executive Order issued on November 21 granting immediate and unconditional amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants here in the United States. First of all, I agree with Republican and Tea Party leaders and with the […]
Malmedy, Belguim will forever be remembered as the most infamous massacre of American troops in World War II. The siege at Bastogne would have overshadowed the Malmedy Massacre had not the Germans committed more than a dozen unwarranted killings of both prisoners of war (POW) and civilians […]
A short time ago, in a galaxy very, very, nearby, a rebel alliance led by a Jedi Grandmaster named Lessig (who I know slightly and admire greatly) conducted a stunning raid on the Death Star. What Death Star? It is the money engines of Washington, DC, the […]
The 2014 election is over and attention has already turned to 2016. Does the Republican success in this election portend a similarly favorable outcome in two years – as did the Democrat congressional sweep in 2006 herald the election of a Democrat President in 2008? Perhaps. But, […]
As we’ve often discussed, the Tech World Media is just as hopelessly Leftist and lost as the broader Jurassic Press.
They so often get it so very wrong – often because their absurd political perspective warps their alleged “reporting.”
Saturday gave us […]
Since the liberals took over the insane asylum, people just keep scratching their heads and saying “what happened?”
Think about this: Obama allowed over 12 million foreigners to invade our shores and now he wants to document them. If you really believe the number is still 12 […]
“Burn this b**** down.”
Some believe those words, shouted by Louis Head, stepfather to the late Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri, are what touched off three days of rioting, violence, and untold property damage across the U.S. and elsewhere.
Head was captured on video with Brown’s mother […]
One of the largest myths going is that government helps the Little Guy.
On its face this is patently absurd. More government – taxes and/or regulations – raises the costs of everything for everyone. The Big Guys are far better equipped to absorb the […]
It is one thing to be clever, quite another to be wise. These two traits – guile and wisdom – are often confused in our fast paced, hurly-burly success crazed world.
If you sound and act […]
Following the announcement of the grand jury’s decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for the death of eighteen-year-old Michael Brown, the crowd gathered in the streets of Ferguson went on a shooting, looting, and burning spree. Chanting, yelling, and rioting over a claim that the […]
Recently I received an email, the subject line of which provocatively suggested that atheists were on the “warpath” against a university professor. Intrigued, I clicked on the email and opened up the linked article. I have to admit that I was less interested in the story than I was in identifying this conservative professor and […]
Listening to the chatter emanating from the halls of the European Community offices in Brussels this week was, to say the least, disturbing. The seemingly endless requests for recognition of a “Palestinian state,” to one well acquainted with the region, showed the utmost in foolishness, […]
Photos from the rioting in Ferguson and around the country after the jury announced its decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson over the shooting of Michael Brown on November 24th. All photos are from Twitter #Ferguson as they were posted throughout the evening.
