Christiana Figueres has suggested that only communism is capable of successfully fighting global warming and “climate change”. Of course it’s a strange statement, given the Soviet Union’s abysmal record on environmental issues, and red China’s horrific display of environmental abuse.
Hooray! Higher gas prices! And this hike in prices, of course, will conveniently coincide with increased inflation, stagnating wages, record joblessness, and anemic economic growth. (Haven’t we seen this movie before?)
Don’t forget what John Maynard Keynes pointed out when advocating for increased government spending: “In the long run, we’re all dead.” Of course, he never said we’d be able to afford the coffin.
Sure, King George never shoved universal healthcare down the throats of our Patriot founders; but he did enact taxes, regulation, and tariffs, with little more than a stroke of a pen. (No word, yet, on how often he decided to play golf...)
Economic freedom is the corner stone of individual liberty. It is the foundation upon which wealth is established, and economic mobility is ensured
Well… I’m starting to run out of places to shop. Target Corporation (TGT) made the announcement on Wednesday that they have acquiesced to the Bloomberg fanatics.
Las Vegas will run out of water. Maybe. Probably. Ya know: eventually. (I suddenly feel like quoting Keynes: “In the long run, we’re all dead.”)
Just over half of the 51 members of the New York City Council wrote a letter to the retail giant demanding that it stop donating millions of dollars to local city charities because… Well, because liberals hate Walmart, I guess.
Women can’t possibly be expected to take care of their own bodies, right? I mean, it’s pretty obvious that equality and empowerment come from depending on entitlements and government mandated acts of charity… Or something.
Once again demonstrating the level of ignorance that is prevalent in liberal corporate settings, the software company has decided to expand their ban on firearm-related content.
The great whiskey drought of the 2010’s will soon be upon us. I know what you’re thinking: Is this how the apocalypse arrives?
I mean, it was no hurricane, or earthquake, or apocalyptic zombie virus outbreak, but it was still an excuse, right? Heck, I'm almost expecting Obama to blame Q1 GDP on a computer crash...
Apparently, in a “utopian” world, restaurants would ban tips and compensate their servers the same way that Chicago teacher unions compensate their rank and file: Without regard to performance, or competency.
I like a good cigarette and moules marinières as much as the next guy (unless, of course he’s French… then he might like it more) but, I’m not thrilled about living in the socialist-lite version of Europe’s paradise for workers.
I know that leftists like to portray Capitalism as a giant factory pumping radioactive sludge into some victimized river - but that’s just not the case.
Ok, I must be having a stroke: I think I agree with her words. Something tells me, however, that our solutions are probably a bit different.
The new gun laws proposed by the city of Chicago are being described (by admitted leftists) as the “smartest in the Nation.” Needless to say: They’re pretty dumb.
Seattle’s minimum wage will cost thousands of small business owners their livelihood, but that’s OK; because according to the city’s Socialist councilwoman, small business owners are all “very, very wealthy.”
Hooray! Higher oil prices! And this hike in prices, of course, will conveniently coincide with increased inflation, stagnating wages, record joblessness, and anemic economic growth. (Haven’t we seen this movie before?)
Chicago’s woes are not merely the consequence of circumstances… These are the symptoms of Liberalism.
