The Reality of the Jobs Numbers

Greg Howard tweeted to check out the Bureau of Labor Statistics instead of relying on the media to relay the jobs situation.  If you follow me, you know I love numbers.  Not only did I dig out the numbers, I went and graphed it out.

Progressives Cry Gun Culture Out-of-Control

They cried that the gun culture is out-of-control, and I let ’em have it. This article at New Haven Register rants on gun ownership, doesn’t have an author’s name (at least not when I went there), had poorly-sourced statistics and what sounded like the idiocy that usually comes from the left. Nine more Connecticut families now have to feel the ...

Learning Economics From Chinese Students

As shameful as it is, a Chinese student gets what we’re struggling to understand – government policies are stifling consumption, exports and therefor the economy. A Bloomberg.com post mentioned that when a professor was discussing the nation’s move to keep interest rates low, a student chimed in with true wisdom: Peking University professor Michael Pettis was discussing declining bank-deposit returns when a ...

The specter of deflation is looming.  Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke, the President’s economic advisor Paul Volcker (remember him from the Carter years?), and Treasury’s Timmy Giehtner are all worried that the inflation they have been trying so hard to elicit isn’t coming fast enough – or at all. While inflation is what happens when too many dollars are chasing ...

On the night of July 24th, all hell broke lose on the internet about some ranches in Texas supposedly going through hell.  Well, there was no hell in Texas, we gave the hoaxers hell, and my guest in this follow-up interview just said hell no.

What’s Happening With Los Zetas in Laredo

It’s been a busy afternoon.  There are numerous conflicting reports about the U.S. incursion by one of Mexico’s most-violent drug gangs, Los Zetas.  I started out concerned, then confused, and finally .. well.. still kinda confused. I was born and raised in Texas and still have a lot of family there (quite a bit in South Texas), so this story ...

Securing Our Southern Border

While the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security has declared that “The border is as secure now as it has ever been” which is a complete joke, there are several reports of Illegal Aliens committing murder, home invasions, and rapes, more and more reports of gunfights on and over the border, heavily armed drug smugglers, and human trafficking.

Americans are asking, “Where’s FEMA?  Why aren’t they involved with the Gulf Oil Spill”.  The answer is as sad as it is strange. Oddly enough, there’s been no formal request from any of the Gulf State Governors to declare the BP Oil Spill a “Federal Disaster Area”.  Instead, there have been numerous requests for aid that would normally follow the ...

So, the administration has it’s loafers on the neck of BP – which part of BP?  It might be those former employers of BP that rely on the company for their pensions.  It could be those that have BP in their 401k retirement accounts.  It’s certainly not the CEO, Obama hasn’t even called him yet.

Progressives Take-Up "Town-Halling" Against Obamacare

During the times of tall sailing ships and pirates, a punishment was used that basically drug the offender under the length of the ship.  This practice was known as keel-hauling and I believe that Democrats may prefer this to what they are experiencing today – town-halling. During the push to pass health care reform in 2009, Democrats held town halls. ...

Dangerous Precursors to Censorship: Government Stepping In

During President Obama’s election bid, the fairness doctrine garnered some of the spotlight.  Conservatives warned that the doctrine would censor the media and filter it of any messages the administration did not agree with.  The liberals.. well, that’s what they were hoping would happen.
