“He ain’t prejudice he’s just, made in America.” Hey! Apple user here! I have a MacBook, an iPhone, an iPad, and eventually I am sure I will break down and buy an iWatch. In other words, I like my devices to be compatible and I like Apple products! So you can imagine how excited I …

The word “taxes” could easily be considered a commonly used word in todays age and every age since the inception of big government. However, very rarely do you hear the word used in a delightful manner. As we all know taxes in general are a necessity for a country’s economical success. So at what point …

There’s a lot of stupidity going around. Monalisa Perez is an aspiring YouTube star who develops videos with Pedro Ruiz III to boost web traffic to their channel. Pedro concocted the idea of shooting him with a .50 caliber pistol while he held an encyclopedia volume at his chest. He believed the hardback volume would stop …

Bernie Sanders is a Marxist. Like the Marxists of old, he wants to control the lives and capital of other people while he lives high on the hog off the capitalists he disparages with every breath. Bernie’s latest tirade came during his questioning of White House Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney: …

My wife and I sat down the Saturday before the Academy Awards to watch the 2015 film Trumbo. Dalton Trumbo is played by Bryan Cranston who did a marvelous job, certainly worthy of the Academy Award nomination he received for Best Actor. It’s loosely based on the Hollywood screenwriter, author, and self-admitted Communist Dalton Trumbo …

Robert Reich “served in the administrations of Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter and was Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997. . . . He was appointed a member of President-elect Barack Obama’s economic transition advisory board. . . . Time magazine named him one of the Ten Best Cabinet Members of the century, and The Wall Street Journal in 2008 placed him sixth on …

Lottery fever hit big a few weeks ago. The last jackpot was more than $1.5 billion. Of course, the government will get its multi-millions. That’s what it’s really all about: people voluntarily giving their money away to the government. Yes, a few people will make millions, but the government will get money it would not …

Anyone familiar with snow blowers and lawn tractors should also be acquainted with the brand name Ariens. The company produces tractors, snow blowers, and a slew of accessories at around 20 plants worldwide. But the majority of the manufacturing takes place right here in the good old U.S.A. Who says nobody in the U.S. makes anything anymore? …

What Obama State of the Union show would be complete (complete disaster that is) without a diatribe on Climate Change and further ruination of the coal and oil industries with his call to “accelerate the transition away from dirty energy.” Climate weenies lamented that “there was no laundry list of bold programs and budding proposals this time.” That is a …

  I have to admit that when I read Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen’s recent comments at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, I LOL’d. In fact, it was less of a laugh and more of an ecstatic chortle. The Democrat-Socialist alliance in the United States loves arguing that the folks living under socialism just …

Over the past several years, state and federal Republicans have been working hard to defund Planned Parenthood. They don’t believe that a private organization that murders unborn children should be supported by taxpayers, many of which object to abortion. With a Republican controlled Congress, you would expect them to work towards either defunding Planned Parenthood …

Not only should Bernie Sanders step down as a presidential candidate, but he should also resign from the Senate. The problem is that it’s not just Sanders who doesn’t know anything about economics. Most Democrats and not a few Republicans don’t know much about economics, and if they do know the fundamentals of economics, they …
