A new report appears to show bad news on the financial front as “the federal budget deficit this year will increase in relationship to the overall size of the economy for the first time since 2009 and continue to grow over the coming decade.” The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that the deficit will grow by an […]

Bernie Sanders’ Tweet Disqualifies Him from Holding any Political Office

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 […]

Star Wars VII and How Tyranny Returns: From Carter to Obama

The following three sentences from Ben Domenech’s article “The New Star Wars Trailer, Analyzed” caught my attention: The internet comment threads are filled with frustrated confusion about this.

The Disastrous Effects of Economic Equality

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 […]

Ohio Gov. John Kasich Believes the Bible Supports the Welfare State

Once again we have a politician using the Bible to support a political position. This time it’s Ohio governor John Kasich, a Republican, believes the Bible can be used to support taking money from some people so it can be given to other people.

Chris Matthews Blames Riots on Right-To-Work States

Riots never built a civilization. Even in the midst of the most severe tragedies, rioting never solved anything. Let’s be clear . . . not all blacks in Baltimore are rioting, but those that are get all the attention. The damage they are do will hut the city. Since most of the rioters are young, […]

Meme of the Day: American Government and the American Indian

Henry Ford had his faults, but he’s right on this one. Of course, there’s always the possibility that he never said it.

Ten Tenets of Conservatism that are Antidotes to Liberalism

The 2016 presidential election season has begun and already the left is attacking the Republicans. They have already begun to tear down our more conservative presidential candidates.

Detroit Man Walks 21 Miles to and From Work Each Day

While most others in his situation would give up and give in — become wards of the state by collecting collect welfare, food stamps, etc. — 56-year-old James Robertson refuses. He has too much pride. He is making his way on $10.55 per hour working at an industrial plastic molding plant, making plastic components for […]

Republican Governor John Kasich Says Bible Supports Obamacare

John Kasich appealed to Matthew 25:42-43 in support of Obamacare. “Promoting Obamacare in South Dakota, Montana and several national interviews last week, Kasich touted the Bible chapter’s depiction of judgment based on individual charity as a sweeping endorsement of government programs for the poor.” “Individual charity” is not government confiscation in the form of taxes, mandates, and fines […]

Pope Francis Doesn’t Know Much About Economics

When Pope Francis speaks, liberals listen, except when it’s about abortion and same-sex marriage, unless, of course, he spouts liberal talking points. His latest comments are about the poor. “The Gospel does not condemn the wealthy, but the idolatry of wealth, the idolatry that makes people indifferent to the call of the poor,” Francis stated […]
