There is a war on prosperity in New York City; and Bill de Blasio has just conscripted New York City property owners to fight on the side of the environmentalists.

Entrepreneur Pete Turner might have to consider rebranding his business because a bunch of self-victimized leftists are throwing a hissy fit.
Dont let anybody tell you that its corporations and businesses that create jobs. The statement hardly merits a deconstruction, given its patently obvious disconnect from common sense. But I wanted to write a column; so lets press ahead anyway.
The real trouble came when she claimed that our Campaigner in Chief was actively campaigning in competitive districts. One of the Bloomberg News hosts asked the obvious question: "Seriously?"
Is there anything that big government does well? I mean sure, the IRS is pretty good at separating me from my hard-earned money; but, then again, so are Vegas Casinos... At least the casinos are voluntary.

Contrary to what our friendly anti-gunners might believe, this sheriff is probably more in sync with the intention of the Constitution than any of the 535 politicians on Capitol Hill And Im not just saying that because he happens to agree with me on gun rights.
Unconfirmed reports of Michael Bloomberg weeping with joy have been trickling in since the CDC decided to out-nanny the former NYC Mayor.
I really, really, really, really hate being put in a position where Im defending the Nannycrat Mike Bloomberg But, hey: Sometimes we all have to do things we dont want to do.
Im waiting with bated breath for a thoughtful answer. (Or is this like the DMV, where I have to take a number and wait in uncomfortable chairs for unreasonable stretches of time?)
Appearing on the Dan Caplis Show (710 KNUS), Democrat Joe Salazar defended his plan to withhold all funding for schools if administrators dont get hip with political correctness. Being a good Progressive is apparently more important than educating children.
During a recent Q&A session at a campaign event in Princeton Indiana, the President trotted out the tried-and-failed talking points of 2012 to defend his signature healthcare law.
The specifics of the Burger King tax-inversion deal aside, Buffetts appearance on CNBC illustrates a core concept of Liberalism: Some animals are more equal than others.
