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. How can people forget about the Jedi a mere thirty years after they orchestrated the collapse of the Empire? Did they all get their minds wiped? Return […]

Two Ways to Fix Immigration

The majority of people opposed to Obama’s immigration policies are not opposed to immigration in general but to what America has become in particular. The great waves of immigration that built America happened when the government of the United States was relatively small. There was no Federal Department of Education, no Great Society, no food […]

76% of Immigrant Led Households with Kids Receive Welfare

About 15 years ago, a family I knew wanted to immigrate to the United States but met with some resistance from the US government.

U.S. Could Go the Way of Greece

As the world markets tremble at the implosion of the Greek economy after voters rejected austerity measures, Americans should realize that it wouldn’t take much to send the U.S. swirling down the same hole the EU is circling. The ultimate source of the problems with Greece’s economy is pretty straightforward: Greeks are apparently crazy. In […]

Arizona Budget Cuts Include Limiting Welfare Benefits

On Monday I posted an article in which I asked the question: How Much Longer Can US Afford To Be a Welfare Nation? In that post I shared the welfare is costing over half a trillion dollars a year and that figures grows more and more every year and that we as a nation can’t […]

How Much Longer Can US Afford To Be a Welfare Nation?

If you’re the recipient of any form of welfare, you mostly likely see it as a life saver and the only thing keeping you from ending up destitute and homeless. But how long can the US continue to pour billions of dollars into the many welfare programs? With so many different types of welfare programs, […]

The “Illegals Pay Taxes Too” Argument

One of the mainstays of the Democrat agenda that must be completed prior to Obama’s exit is the legalizing of illegal aliens. And as if right on cue, the Fiscal Times via Yahoo Finance has presented proof that immigrants, despite being undocumented, are contributing a portion of their (ill-gotten) income to paying their fair share. The […]

Joe Biden Wants to ‘Emancipate Wealth’ by Stealing More of It and Making More Poor People

Joe Biden is creepy and dangerous. He was picked by Obama to be the vice-president for two reasons: First, because he knew that Biden could not compete with him in the realm of public popularity. He needed a vice-president who would not upstage him. Biden was the perfect pick. The stooge that made the other […]

Liberals Ignore Homeless Problem in Nation’s Capital When a Democrat is President

Obama and the left love to travel the country making soap-box speeches bemoaning income inequality, yet right under their collective noses is a dichotomy of two vastly different economies in the District of Columbia. One is populated by “the connected,” thriving in well-paying government jobs. The other is for people scrambling for even low-paying work. We should be […]

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 […]

Leftist Claims High Taxes are Better for Economy and More Moral

The insanity of liberals knows no bounds. Paul Waldman writes for American Prospect. His latest blog post argues that conservatives don’t support tax cuts because they help the economy grow. “The real source of the conservative support for tax cuts is moral, not practical. They believe that taxes are inherently immoral — the government stealing […]
