Football fans everywhere are indebted to Virginia Delegate Joe May (R–Leesburg) whose invention of the electronic first down marker added much needed precision to watching the game on TV. Unfortunately, May’s understanding of the free market is much less precise and is in danger of throwing taxpayers for a significant loss. According to Liz Essley […]

In some corners of elite opinion working on Capital Hill means one is laboring in the political equivalent of Wal–Mart. Hill workers have their pity while toiling in a crowded ideologyshop for chump change. Yet, just like Wal–Mart, each time an election or retirement causes a new Congressional store to open the line of applicants […]
Liberals love to cite how tax rates are at their lowest in recent memory, ballooning corporate profits, and how Bush era policies caused the financial meltdown. They seem to think these are ample reasons to argue why we shouldn’t deregulate our over-regulated economy. However, it is becoming harder for the political left to argue this […]
While CDN is primarily considered to be a political website, I contend that mundane aspects of our culture can sometimes be a part of the equation that get overlooked. One of the issue that’s been on my mind lately is how we treat each other publicly. If the last couple of decades were known for […]
I’ve been wondering how many of the Occupy Wall Street squatters are actually enraged Netflix subscribers or retirees with Netflix stock in the 401K? The timing is about right. In August Netflix increases the fee for plans that include video streaming and DVDs by a shocking 60 percent. In September the company announces it’s amputating […]
Pictured to the left is 2012 Congressional candidate Mike Yost, with wife Debbie, whom is running against long-term incumbent Democrat Corrine Brown in Florida’s District 03 race. This race boils down to a very simply-defined characterization: Mr. Yost is a solidly conservative candidate who firmly believes in our Constitutionally mandated form of limited government while […]
This post at Spaceflight Now about the possibility of the IIS space station going unmanned in November sparked this side commentary on The Other McCain delving into the deterioration of America’s commitment to win the science and technology race, and the federal task of providing for the national security. The offshoot post by Chris Smith […]
The moniker of the Liberal Left is “Capitalism has Failed.” However when we had true capitalism and free market in this nation it did anything but fail. What the Liberals mean when they say Capitalism has failed, is that big “fat cats” have gobbled up all the money and left us garbling for their crumbs. […]
The rich are the least understood minority. That fact lends them to be vilified by the very politicians at the root of our serious economic problems. The facts are: The rich take risks with their money. When they invest their expendable income, they are risking the loss of that income. Often the rich loose a great […]
The Lone Star State is a symbol of success for free-market policy. Austin Local Me reported in May that Texas created more jobs than the eight other states that created any jobs at all combined according to Bureau of Labor Statistics. Nine states, including Texas, had more jobs in March 2011 than in that month five […]
Senators Barney Frank and Chris Dodd put together yet another progressive nightmare for our marginally free-market system. Granted the thought of those two alone in a dark corner is nausea-inducing, that’s not where I’m going. The Dodd-Frank bill, otherwise known as the “Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” neither reforms Wall Street nor protects […]
For months we have been fed several mis-truths, myths, and outright lies about health care. It is certainly worthwhile to evaluate all the individual frauds, but we may be missing the forest for the trees.
