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.

While Holder and Co have been busy collecting billion dollar fines from big banks, they’ve taken a more direct approach to snub out businesses that don’t necessarily conform with the Holder/Obama view of America.

You can annoy a liberal, and save money at the same time. It’s like some sort of a magical set of circumstances that were created especially for gun enthusiasts on a budget.

Can you imagine if this group was in charge after WWII? “Well, Germany,” they’d say while blaming the bad economy on FDR, “It’s been fun. Glad you’re all straightened out. Now good luck with Russia.”

Like a political hack blundering through a stump speech – rather than the President of the United States addressing a graduation ceremony – he accused the GOP of being un-American, and keeping kids out of college.

Now – and I’m just thinking outside of the box on this one – couldn’t we just ask students to borrow responsibly? Or, in a world where 26 year olds are still listed as children on their parents’ health insurance, is that asking way too much?

I know, I know: Not everything is about the bottom line; but when the bottom line suffers in a misguided attempt to forward useless anti-gun policies, it begins to matter a bit more.

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.

Bill “punish the rich” de Blasio paid a mere 8 percent of his income in federal taxes. Just to put that in context for any liberal that has accidently stumbled across this paragraph: That’s less than that capitalist pig, Mitt Romney.

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?

Elizabeth Warren explained that Piketty’s new book, Capital, shows that wealth “trickles up”. Now, unless I am very out of touch with modern economics, poor people still aren’t the primary employers in America, right?

Sure… End the Fed. But before we tackle that challenge, maybe we should end the reign of Obamanomics? The real problem seems to be the guy living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and most of the 535 “leaders” who help craft fiscal policy at the US Capitol.

Putin is getting the Soviet band back together and the Middle East is engaged in a shooting war over who hates Americans more… Either Obama’s brilliant plan to create world peace has gone horribly wrong, or he really has no idea what he’s doing.
