Is It A Woman's World?

Is It A Woman’s World?

I won’t lie.  I found Suzanne Venker’s piece about the ‘war on men‘ interesting, thought-provoking, and controversial.  In the process, she has reaped a whirlwind of left-wing hate.  It’s no surprise that today’s economy is better suited for women.  Manufacturing, the lynchpin of male labor, has collapsed – and now scores of men are left […]

(Un)Employment In Perspective

(Un)Employment In Perspective

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that October’s “official” U-3 unemployment rate fell below 8 percent, but just barely at 7.9 percent. As Rick Moran wrote, “… the economy added a middling 171,000 jobs.” (By the way, U-3 unemployment rate among blacks is 14.3 percent, yet Obama’s job approval rating among blacks is 91 […]

The End of the Twinkie?

The End of the Twinkie?

Sandy not to blame for dismal jobs report

Sandy not to blame for dismal jobs report

The AP reported today that this week’s terrible unemployment numbers were due to fallout from Sandy – the storm that hit the Northeast last week. On its face, the excuse holds merit. When digging into the data, it looks like AP over-interpreted a footnote thereby giving the Administration a pass on an awful report. The […]

Companies Begin Layoffs Following Obama’s Re-election

With the so-called ‘fiscal cliff’ looming at the end of the year, many companies had warned that if President Obama were re-elected, they would be forced to lay off workers. Company officials listed the skyrocketing price of health insurance and the taxes contained in Obamacare as a primary reason for job cuts. Some job cuts […]

The Day After...

The Day After…

Well, we lost.  Mitt Romney didn’t win comfortably.  BUT, Republicans maintained control of the House of Representatives.  In one of the most ignominious highlights of the night, the GOP lost two senate seats – increasing the Democratic majority by two.  The current makeup is 55 Democrats to 45 Republicans.  In a milestone for the ladies, […]

Still Undecided? Think Jobs, Gas, Groceries & Your Budget

It’s down to the wire and still there are some undecided voters.  If you know them ask a simple question, “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” It’s the simple question Ronald Reagan asked voters following four challenging years under the Carter administration. The question is as valuable today. Has your […]

Young Women Overwhelmingly Favor Lower Taxes and Less Government Spending to Help Job Creation

“Young women don’t want someone who just talks a good game – they want someone who gets the job done. They are sick of empty promises, flashy gimmicks, and meaningless endorsements. Young women are being devastated by this economy and denied opportunities for independence so that they can build a future for themselves. Through no fault of their own, their lives have been placed on hold. They are paying for this administration’s failures personally through the lack of job opportunities. With unemployment for young women far above the already high national unemployment rate, they know the status quo is unacceptable, and they know that we can do better,” said Amber S. Roseboom, Executive Vice President of Generation Opportunity and a former Deputy Chief of Staff of the United States Office of Personnel Management.
