Here, apparently, is our President’s dyslexic interpretation of the 4th amendment: it is unconstitutional for an Arizona cop with probable cause to ask for ID from a guy who just knocked off a liquor store, but it is ok for the TSA at Phoenix airport to reach under a nun’s skirt to see if there is anything interesting up there.
Exactly wrong. The 4th amendment to the Constitution protects citizens (that would be American citizens) from unwarranted searches (that would be searches…

Commenting on last week’s post, Pension Choice, a reader questioned how we would provide jobs for younger workers if older workers postponed their retirements. Once again, my libertarian solution for jobs is ridiculously simple: eliminate the corporate income tax.
Before you let fly with the angry anti-corporate letters, bear in mind the corporate income tax only brings in about $300 billion in a good year, while estimates of the costs of corporate subsidies, bailouts, price…

For more than 50 years, Democrats and Republicans have known that us baby boomers were going to bankrupt the Social Security system; and for more than 50 years they have both kicked the can down the road. Welcome to the end of the road.
Only the seriously delusional still pretend that any real funds have been accumulated in the Social Security Trust Fund. You can’t spend the same dollar twice, and we have raided the fund year after year to pay for other current government services.…

As the debate over extending the Bush tax cuts starts up again, liberals continue to call no change a "cut", and call a cut "spending". Which brings us to the most significant question in matters of fiscal policy: what is wrong with these people?
Honestly - they have diplomas from very expensive colleges and prep schools; they read a lot and have dinners with people who are really smart, and yet they can not comprehend terms whose meaning is plain to any 7th grader – spend, earn,…

This week there were too many absurdities to pick just one for my weekly commentary, so I decided to ape ESPN’s popular "C’mon Man!" segment where the MNF gang nominates their favorite boneheaded plays of the week.
Boomer: How did they hurt themselves in a bye week? The post-election injury report is so long Gloria Alred can’t decide which ambulance to chase - Nancy Pe-lose-i, Ben weekend at Benanke’s, sing along with Mitch O’Connell, or he…

No election cycle would be complete without some Hollywood liberal threatening to move to France because the Democrats lost. This year it was some B-lister I never heard of, but my reflexive response is the same as it was for Sean Penn, Alec Baldwin, or that Janine person – au revoir, mon ami.
Seriously, despondent liberals should not just talk about moving to France, they should move to France. Nothing is stopping them, and if they can’t get a visa to say there, just camp out…

No, my dear Democrat friends, it wasn’t secret money from overseas, or the media failure to explain health care, or talk radio hosts, or Fox News, or the racist tea parties, or Americans for Prosperity that cost you the election today – you did this to yourselves.
It started with the TARP bank bailouts; the American people were 8:1 opposed and you passed it anyway – twice. Then the stimulus; overwhelmingly opposed but you passed that, too. Then you hosed the bond-holders and gave GM…
