That's right. McCain wants more US weapons for Syria, perhaps even a US invasion. Yet, those weapons either go straight into the hands of Al Qaeda or eventually end up in Al Qaeda hands anyway.
I guess if it is good enough for Gwyneth Paltrow, then it is good enough for the stock market. A few days ago, the actress and her husband, Chris Martin, announced they are getting a divorce. However, they plan to do it a little differently because she is famous, and better than the others who also failed at marriage.
While the doomsday date for the final destruction of mankind due to global warming gets pushed back farther and farther, I’m wondering if any of these WeatherNazis actually understand human history.
The Dot-Com Bubble consisted of two major phases: an inflation phase that ran from April 1997 to August 2000, which marked the peak of the bubble, and a deflation phase that ran from August 2000 to June 2003, after which order returned to the market.
I spoke yesterday to the Memphis Economics Club about America’s looming fiscal crisis, and I did my usual song-and-dance routine. But I confess I was stumped when someone from the audience asked about the Obama Administration’s strategy on Obamacare...
Well… Actually the question is rhetorical. Reid apparently “gifted” his granddaughter $31,000 from his campaign funds. Oh, and he lied about calling average Americans liars (which was also a lie). Also, Ambassador from the great Republic of Texas, Kevin Brady, joined the program to talk some inside-baseball about Capitol Hill.
This is unsustainable. (But don’t tell Paul Krugman this.)
An anti-gun liberal talk-show host wants to shoot NRA board members, because they are fighting for “guns everywhere”… Guns everywhere? Is there such a place? And if so: What are the home values like nowadays?
When you support limited government and individual freedom, you don’t enjoy many victories. Particularly if you’re relying on the U.S. Senate. But it does occasionally happens.
Throughout 2013, higher taxes on all income classes—President Obama’s levies on the wealthy, higher local taxes on the middle class, and reinstatement of social security taxes on lower income workers—depressed consumer spending.
Obama must know his popularity is plummeting when Euro-socialists begin applauding him less than Tea Party members. Of course Obamacare is his biggest blunder stateside – But Michael Cannon, with Cato, has a way of dismantling the bureaucratic monstrosity that few people have discussed.
The National Labor Relations Board in Chicago has decided that college athletes – who are getting a subsidized education and a shot at a multi-million dollar career – have the right to unionize as employees of the university they attend.
About the only good coming out of ridiculous tit-for-tat sanctions on Russia is the possibility of revised US energy policy, and Lithuania is pleading for it.
Don't get me wrong: Obama still has a problem of governance, but you can't work on basic shapes and colors until you get your numbers right.
It is likely that all anti-government groups have agreed on the need to disrupt the elections in April and are cooperating as Taliban. Yesterday's bombing was an act of terror that targeted campaign workers and the election apparatus itself.
Back in the 1980s and 1990s, there was a widespread consensus that high tax rates were economically misguided. Many Democrats, for instance, supported the 1986 Tax Reform Act that lowered the top tax rate from 50 percent to 28 percent...
Another Delay? Actually… It would have been news if there weren’t any more delays. Yes, Obamacare is facing another “hiccup”. Nicholas Vardy also joined the program to explain his $25,000 bet against Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway.
In fighting for expanded “reproductive rights”, the Sandra Flukes of the world routinely remind us that we’re talking about "their uterus"… Well, fine. But, if it’s "your uterus," then "you" should pay for keeping it baby-free.
Round one in French elections is over, and the socialists were hammered. The victor was Marine Le Pen's Front National party. The Socialists only received 43% of the votes, with the center-right pulling in 46-48%.
In addition to the biotech bubble hemorrhaging air, many pundits are pointing to the abundance of IPOs as a sign that the end is near. It is not just the volume of offerings, but much is being said about the quality of names going public, as 70% of recent offerings have yet to post profits.
Socialists figured out that they really couldn't dispense with religion. So now they've made one up. Don't believe me? As a Catholic, I can give you more scientific evidence that a virgin birth is possible than warmers can give that their computers models are accurate.
North Korea's deputy ambassador to the United Nations said in a press conference on Monday, that North Korea will take additional "nuclear measures" if the United States continues its current approach toward Pyongyang.
There seem to only be two types of companies on Wall Street nowadays: Those that profit despite Washington… And those that profit because of Washington. As the Fed tapers its QE program, we’re starting to see which companies actually have what it takes to make it in today’s economy.
President Reagan appointed Dr. C. Everett Koop to be the Surgeon General of the United States. President Obama has nominated Dr. Vivek Hallegere Murthy to become the Surgeon General. The contrast between these two men speaks volumes about the politicization of this office and how this administration has cheapened it.
Credit card companies don’t care about the circumstances. They want their money, period. Never take personal responsibility for company expenses.
This is one of the reasons why Canada now ranks higher than the United States in both Economic Freedom of the World and the Index of Economic Freedom. And it’s also worth noting that spending restraint has facilitated significant tax cuts in Canada. Indeed, some American companies are moving north of the border!
Policy does not grow on trees. Policy comes from people who command attention and have, and win, arguments. As the attention-commanding RNC together with two of the capital’s leading think tanks indicate, a good argument is brewing.
Last week, Janet Yellen sent stocks diving by saying the Federal Reserve could begin raising interest rates as early as next spring—most traders and forecasters have predicted a later date.
Here’s an excerpt from the Detroit News that tells you everything you’ll ever need to know about the stupidity of government. The city actually loses money on parking enforcement.
Bank Rossiya is frozen out of the US dollar even though it is not a rogue bank, is not involved in any criminal investigation, and in fact has not done anything wrong.
Oh, and Jeb is a key guy behind Common Core.
Being far more perturbed by taxes than we are today, Colonial Americans took immediate action against British over-reach. And on this day, 239 years ago, Patrick Henry made his famous ultimatum: Give me liberty, or give me death!
Arrogant fools never perceive of themselves as arrogant fools. They will not apologize for mistakes or make necessary reforms. Instead they will eventually be voted out, forced out in a coup d'état, or overrun by the forces of social media.
Now, thanks to Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, it appears that the job creators may have finally learned something from the extreme tactics of groups, like the Wild Earth Guardians and the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD).
Conservatives may not like his explanation that a national party must be a “very big tent” that requires compromise but he explained that the "self-promotional babble of a few" has become an unflattering image for the Republican Party.
But Oregonians did get this really cool promotional video for Obamacare.
