Liberals view income disparity as social injustice, proposing to remedy the income gap by taxing higher income people and giving the money to lower income people. The premise for such action is that rich people have more money than they need and poor people are entitled to that surplus.
The state of Maryland has the nation’s highest median family income of $69,202. It is nearly twice the state of Mississippi’s median family income of $36,646. Using the logic of the… Continue
Another Nobel-winning scientist has come out publicly against the claim of climate alarmists that the science of global warming is “incontrovertible”.
Norway’s Dr. Ivar Giaever has joined over 1,000 other notable scientists now on record as skeptical of the theory that human activity endangers life by raising global temperatures. I’m not one of the 1,000 but only because I am not notable...or a scientist.
Politicians and eco-priests firmly wedded to their belief in… Continue
These GOP Presidential debates on television do very little to educate the public on the principles, positions, and policies of the various candidates. A 30 second response to a “gotcha” question allows 10 seconds to throw off a sound bite, 10 seconds to mischaracterize an opponents’ position, and then 10 seconds to change the subject.
So-called moderators seem to be especially bent on hanging Ron Paul with ridiculous questions intended to belittle principled libertarian positions on… Continue
The math is deceptively simple: minus one plus one equals zero. Government cannot add a single dollar to the economy that it has not first taken out of it.
The economics are even simpler: people spend their own money more carefully than they spend other people's money.
The spectacular failure of "Green Economy" poster kid Solyndra will cost the taxpayers over $500 million. More important than why we gave them those loan guarantees is why they were needed in the first… Continue
Let’s play “Who wants to be a CEO?” Ok, you are about to create or save a $50,000 job just to claim that new $780 one-time payroll tax credit when the Department of Justice comes blasting into your office with guns drawn and confiscates all your raw materials.
Do you a) thank the President for his bold leadership in job creation, b) blame the Tea Party for foiling his perfect and most wonderful vision of our nation, or c) move your plant to another country where they need warrants to… Continue
Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown, and Jill became a libertarian. What the…?
Here’s how it happened. First, the IRS took half her water in taxes. Then the Department of Justice took her bucket because it might be made out of illegal wood from India. Then the DNR fined Jill for disrupting the habitat of some creek guppy no one ever heard of.
The NLRB ruled Jill could only fetch water in Washington State and had to… Continue
We are approaching the 10th anniversary of the 911 attack on the World Trade Center and the controversy is hotter than ever. I'm inspired to write this piece after watching a National Geographic special that attempts to refute the position of the conspiracy "theorists", but is actually a poorly conceived effort to endorse the official stance: that it was a surprise attack.
To those of us who know better there are certain aspects of the event that this documentary either ignores…
