If I had been Barrack Obama's adviser when he was young I would have led, guided, pushed or simply threatened him to go to business school instead of law school.

If Congress, the Senate and the White House could take a long needed - but unearned - vacation, say five or six years, when they returned unemployment wouldn't be a problem.

The goal of the modern progressive party is equality for all. Does that mean I will be as rich as Bill Gates is now, or does it mean that Bill Gates is heading for an awful drubbing, and will be as "rich" as I am, right now?
