Economics


When you hear about illegal aliens, you generally think of Border States like Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas and of course Florida, but most people don’t think of states further north like Ohio as having a problem with illegal aliens. I live in the northern tip of Kentucky, just south of Cincinnati, Ohio and …

On Saturday Democrat candidate for President Hillary Clinton jumped the shark while attempting to defend liberal economic policies while simultaneously attacking Republican economic policy. Mrs. Clinton said that she thought that President Obama deserved more “credit” for cleaning up the mess left behind by President George W. Bush (a President who had a majority Democrat …

In a previous article I explained at least one reason why Americans aren’t rioting over the size of the national debt and yearly budget deficit – how Washington is taxing and spending us into oblivion and yet we just don’t seem to care. Sure, when a pollster calls, we tell him or her it is …

Anyone who has ever paid attention to politics for long should understand the depths to which cynical politicians will sink in order to manipulate the voting public and gather power to themselves. The Obama White House, however, made it official about a year ago, and recently its Social and Behavioral Science Team, under the Office of Science …

The Democrat “debate” was a giveaway forum, where the candidates took the stage to spell out their plans to give free stuff to people who didn’t earn it. It was really no different from any other staged Democrat function, whether it’s a debate or a State of the Union address. The candidates, mainly Hillary and Bernie, …

Last year, nearly 100,000 unaccompanied minors entered the US illegally. Supposedly the bulk of them were escaping the violence where they lived in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. The federal government officially labeled them Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC). Even though some of them were infected with contagious diseases like tuberculosis, most all of them were …

The final result of economic equality makes everyone equally poor. What’s the best way to get wealth in the hands of people? There are several methods. The most popular (and destructive) is for the wealthy to be taxed so their “excess” wealth can be redistributed to the less fortunate. This works for a time until productive …

I’ve had the same conversation dozens of times. Whenever a liberal wants to debate economic policy, they always use the same tired numbers comparing major liberal population centers like New York City with conservative exurban areas that are far from any major city. “Why,” they say, “if conservative policies are so much better, is the …

One of the main promises made by Barack Obama to every American was that Obamacare would keep healthcare costs low and affordable for everyone. Costs for individuals, employees and employers were all supposed to be lowered and then kept under control. If you believed Obama’s promise, then contact me as I have a bridge to …

So the pope walks into Congress. Congress says, “Hey, we fund an organization that kills hundreds of thousands of children each year, we’re doing nothing about the invasion of our own country, we’re letting men marry other men and women marry other women, we cripple our own economy by stealing from our own people and …

“Flee the temptation of narcissism,” Pope Francis said yesterday during his first U.S. visit. Now if he had directed those words to President Obama I would have said he hit a home run. But instead he directed them to a group of bishops he gently admonished to not be shy about welcoming immigrants, whom he …

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has joined the $15 minimum wage bandwagon and if he gets his way, it could bankrupt the state and New York City. That’s not considering what it will do to businesses of all sizes, many of which will be forced to either lay off workers or close their doors. Gov. …
