Article V Convention - Congress Will Not Act, So We Will

Article V Convention – Congress Will Not Act, So We Will

Government debt continues to amass at a dizzying pace. The federal government has displayed no discipline in reining it in and reestablishing a more sound fiscal footing for the future of the country. Our founding fathers, however, had the prescience to include in our Constitution the means whereby the states, and the people, could force […]

Paying Taxes Is Not "Patriotic," Nor is it "Voluntary"

Paying Taxes Is Not “Patriotic,” Nor is it “Voluntary”

Six years ago Vice President Joe Biden said that paying taxes is patriotic. Citing the need for the wealthy to pay more of their “share” of taxes, he said it was, “time to be patriotic,” even though the top 20% of wage-earners pay 93% of federal income taxes. The latest iteration of the “paying taxes […]

I Told You It Wasn’t a Woman’s Health Issue !

I Told You It Wasn’t a Woman’s Health Issue !

I have been saying, to the irritant of my friends on the Left, that abortion has nothing to do with women’s health. One of the original questions the Supreme Court had to deal with in the seventies when they approved this “slaughter law” was, when does life begin. Well, all the academics and doctors that […]

The Failure of Obamanomics

The strongest component of the Federal Reserve’s Leading Economic Indicators currently is stock market performance. Such equity strength is more a case of artificial stimulation by the Federal Reserve through Quantitative Easing and the cozy relationship between Washington and Wall Street than it is a sign of a healthy economy or White House policies that […]

America #1 energy producer

America Remains World’s Top Energy Producer

Bank of America reports that the United States will remain the world’s top energy producer this year and for some time to come despite the current administration’s attempts to curb energy exploration and transportation. President Obama has done everything within his power (and some things not so within it) to suppress American energy production. As […]

HuffPuff Propagandizes a FOX Reality

HuffPuff Propagandizes a FOX Reality

I go through the headlines and news stories in over one-hundred publications daily. I do this so that I can view multiple sources on some of the same stories. Doing this allows me to formulate what is fact and what is disingenuous spin; propaganda meant to trick the public into thinking one way instead of […]

China, Russia and South Korea Make Moves Away from Dollar

China, Russia and South Korea Make Moves Away from Dollar

BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, S. Africa) is the acronym signifying the next generation of economic power houses. Increasingly, these, and nations like them are working to diminish the U.S. Dollar as the World’s reserve currency. This week, China and Russia took more steps towards that goal. China’s central bank has authorised the Bank of Communications, […]

CA dems re-think cap and trade

Even Democrats realize Cap and Trade = economic disaster

For years, economists have been saying that cap-and-trade would be an economy killer. Now, a group of California Democrats has come to the same conclusion in a letter to the head of California’s air resources board. The 16 Democrats have requested a delay or change to the rules that would put gasoline under the same cap-and-trade rules […]

Obama Illegally Shutting Down Businesses with Operation Choke Point

Obama Illegally Shutting Down Businesses with Operation Choke Point

In a free-market capitalistic system, the economy grows as companies compete freely for consumer dollars by producing superior products and services, adding jobs while their bottom-line grows. In such a system the government plays a role as referee by protecting consumers and ensuring all corporate players compete legally, and fairly. But in a crony-capitalistic system, […]

Q1 GDP Down 2.9%: Admin says – meh

Today we learned that the Gross Domestic Product of the United States decreased by 2.9% in the first three months of 2014 – a number greatly different than dismal .1% increase the administration reported initially. How could this be? According to the Huffington Post Obamacare had just saved the economy from contraction.. or something. As […]

The Economy: National Review and de Rugy promote suicidal “free trade” policies, attack Ex-Im

Last month, the National Review’s pseudoconservative editors (who, BTW, supported John McCain for reelection in 2010) and NRO blogger Veronique de Rugy (a scholar at the GMU’s Mercatus Center) launched another idiotic, ignorant attack on the Export-Import Bank and on the Boeing company (one of the Bank’s beneficiaries). Why the Ex-Im Bank is needed, and […]

Federal Debt and A Bad Law (FATCA) May Collapse the Dollar

Federal Debt and A Bad Law (FATCA) May Collapse the Dollar

All of us have experienced the merciless effects of the “law of unintended consequences” at one time or another. We do something that we think is good or proactive, only to discover that there are negative effects produced as byproducts of our good intent. The creation of an unanticipated pejorative result from purposeful action is […]

Obama failures

Conservatism Contrasted with Obama’s Policy Failures

Conservatives have, from the beginning of his candidacy for the presidency seven years ago, been critical of our sitting president. It has nothing to do, contrary to some sophist’s convictions, with the color of his skin. And our criticisms are not ad hominem for they aren’t against him personally, but against his policies and what […]

Wal-mart misses on sales and earnings

What today’s economic news tells us about the ‘recovery’

Listening to the President, his administration, some in Congress and several news reports, many would say the economy is recovering slowly but gaining traction. Seeing the economic data released today may reveal a somewhat more real reality. The unemployment figures released this morning seem promising, but only in a vacuum. Claims dropped 24,000 to a seasonally-adjusted […]

How Britain Achieved – And Lost – Economic Preeminence – And Lessons For The US

In the mid-19th century, and in the first few decades afterwards, Britain was an unmatched military, economic, colonial, and thus geopolitical colossus, by far the most powerful country in the world. There was no country that was even close to matching the military or economic power of Britain, which had the largest empire in the […]
