It’s past time to do away with the throwaway holiday of Labor Day. Let the Marxists keep May Day, if they wish. Instead, perhaps on the first Monday in September we should remember things that matter, like those people who died in the 9/11 tragedy.

Based on the dismal data from the Minneapolis Federal Reserve (as well as our own experiences), we know Obamanomics doesn’t work in the United States. And we know it doesn’t work in Japan. We know it doesn’t work in Spain. We know it doesn’t work in Argentina. We know it doesn’t work in Greece. . .
Many people believe demographics explains the decline in the workforce. However, that's not the case.

Will Obama just rewrite the regulations to make union members magically eligible for Obamacare subsidies, as in: “Look, we just found the ‘Lost Pages’ of the Obamacare legislation that we accidentally left on the copier for these four years. Hurray! Union members ARE eligible”?

The Drug War has been a very costly failure. Indeed, it’s been such a boondoggle that we can now add John McCain to the list of those who think maybe it’s time to consider decriminalization.
