The most powerful coalition of Syrian rebels, the newly formed Islamic Front, has rejected talks with US officials just days after seizing control of warehouses filled with American military equipment that was sent to support more secular rival rebel groups.
It seems that nothing could be worse than the current welfare/ entitlement system. I think there’s a better road to Rome. It’s called federalism.
What could be yet more expensive than a crisis without a banking union? The answer is simple: A crisis preceded by a poorly constructed banking union that promised illusory security
At the end of this year, extended unemployment benefits are scheduled to expire. More than likely, most of these same individuals will simply convert to disability benefits, as it will be magically determined that their ability to work has been affected by some sort of social disorder.
The line employs a sharp edged bathos: End of civilization drama counterpoised with a sneer at that most-despised bit of pre-modern Christian dogma – the virgin birth. Religious people gasped, and aggressive atheists snickered, but I just sat there wishing that Christopher Hitchens knew more history.
After nearly five years in office, what’s President Obama’s most significant accomplishment? This is a serious question, so no jokes about the Nobel Prize he received for not being Bush. And no partisan GOP answers about the 2010 election, either.
European Central Bank President, Mario Draghi Says ECB Won’t Hesitate to Fail Banks in Stress Tests.
The most fun part of managing money is getting to learn about the different and crazy ways that people earn a living. Often a very good living.

Supporting higher taxes, after all, on those who make more than you-- and this is what opponents of free markets wish for-- is not the same as a rich man feeding and clothing the poor. Or even yet a widow donating out of her want.
I love to kid myself especially when it comes to the lottery. When the big jackpots come around I gather up my coins and have been known to spend up to $3 on tickets. Once I get the tickets I start dreaming of what to do with the prize money.

The income inequality debate that is raging around the world advocated by very powerful voices, like Pope Francis and President Obama. I think the former is using his platform in an attempt to shame and alter free market capitalism. I think the latter wants to ditch it altogether.
Coupled with a cornucopia of dovish statements the Fed finally decided to taper, a measly $10 billion per month, half out of mortgage purchases, half out of treasury purchases.
Researching K-Force (KFRC) over the weekend, I came across this very interesting assessment of the top technology jobs for 2014. The list reveals several truths, all of which should be good news for Americans.
Like all advocates of freedom, I normally despair about the future. Whether we’re measuring the ever-growing burden of government or the erosion of key forms of social capital such as self-reliance and the work ethic, it seems that the world is heading in the wrong direction. But, at least for today, I'm a little optimistic.
What if we told you there are ways you can buy real health insurance, and more importantly, more affordable health insurance, than you can get from either the federal government's or your state government's health insurance "marketplaces"?
It seems apropos to mention something controversial about Santa Claus, given the recent furor over his skin pigmentation. (Ya know, because early Catholic Bishops and German folklore characters are traditionally such a multicultural crowd.) I am convinced that Kris Kringle is (undoubtedly) a member of the Republican Party.
It was only after my long career as a pharmacological scientist that I decided to pick the biotech and pharmaceutical stocks as the hottest industries of the year. That, of course, is not true – the part about my career as a scientist, that is.
By December of last year, companies were already making changes to hiring in order to accommodate Obamacare. While the employer mandate won’t be effective until 2015, the disruption should be felt well before then.
Is Obamacare going to get better or worse as time goes on? If early indications are anything to go on, the train-wreck-that-is Obamacare will only get worse in 2014. Mark Calabria, with Cato, also joined the program to discuss the Volcker rule and Dodd-Frank
After dropping well below the historic trend near the end of Bush’s second term, the unemployment rates of African Americans have again climbed to twice the rate of whites. If judged by the metrics Liberals use to evaluate Conservative theory, President Obama is the worst President for Black America in recent memory.
Ransom wants to know if you would support higher taxes for the sake of hiring armed security guards at public schools? Also, Bill Tatro joined the program to discuss the direction of the economy, and the overall health of America’s economic growth.
On December 7th, nearly 100 state legislators, many distinguished, representing 32 states, assembled at Mount Vernon.The purpose? To discuss how to, safely, revive an overlooked, but invaluable, provision in the United States Constitution to allow a supermajority of states to rein in a power-drunk federal government.
The November jobs report released last Friday by the Labor Department seemed a breath of holiday good cheer at just the right time. The White House (in desperate need of anything that resembled "good news") hailed the report as evidence that "the recovery continues to gain traction."
North Korea has never shown that it can manage more than one crisis or major development at a time. The promise to do so this time should provide insights as to the leadership's management competence and style.
In a rare victory for constitutional freedoms, U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon, ruled NSA phone program likely unconstitutional.
In a world where hustlers of division now routinely push the concept of “white privilege"; in a country where the president of the United States blames rich people for everything, it’s a short distance between excusing someone for their behavior based on circumstances and accusing someone for their behavior based on circumstance.
Once the Boomer top 10-20% replace their auto fleets, real retail sales and real final sales per capita will again contract.
Brooks often does a good job of highlighting important and worrisome social trends, but what rubs me the wrong way is that he frequently thinks the right answer is to give government even more power.

A Wall Street Journal editorial surmises that Senate Democrats eliminated the filibuster for non-Supreme Court judicial appointments so they could pack the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit with judges that would block an important ObamaCare case called Halbig v. Sebelius.
Just because voters and the public are momentarily caught up in the tax lust that the Democrats rely on to get more money for government by taxing “someone else” won’t change the fact that on election day Obama and the Democrats will have to be the party of higher taxes no matter what.
It turns out that weather conditions in 2013 across all of North America were nearly ideal for growing just about every crop grown in the U.S., with the result that U.S. farmers were harvesting bumper crops of just about everything they grow in August and September 2013.
