(2) Comments | Posted April 27, 2015 | 12:57 AM

Recently I was visiting with a friend of mine who happened to discuss a "too big to fail" list that the federal government has created and sanctioned. He assumed I knew about it, and I thought there were general guidelines that would be required to make a company compliant with...

(1) Comments | Posted April 2, 2015 | 10:40 AM

The vast majority of Americans clearly seem unhappy with the working of Washington. The president and Congress have overwhelmed the American people with an incredible number of laws that are difficult for the voters and even policy makers to understand. Many bills are now passing Congress without being read by...

Ted Cruz's Odd Obamacare Decision

(1) Comments | Posted March 27, 2015 | 12:39 PM

So far presidential candidate Ted Cruz's announcement that his family will sign up for Obamacare has been treated with humor and, on a small degree, embarrassment. He recently told CNN's Dana Bash that "We'll be getting new health insurance and we'll presumably do it through my job with...

Why the Global Economy Continues to Sputter

(6) Comments | Posted March 19, 2015 | 12:41 PM

Barack Obama is only one of many "chief executives" of countries around the world who is being forced to adjust the GDP of his country from 2014 to a lower figure. Furthermore, he is one of many who must continually defend stagnant economies.

I remember when I was growing up...

Is GOP Senators' Letter to Iran a Green Light for Unilateral Action?

(5) Comments | Posted March 12, 2015 | 6:45 PM

Memo to the GOP: You are the new majority in both Houses of Congress. Based on recent actions by many of its members, that status seems in danger. Several Republican members of the U.S. Senate sent a bizarre letter that is a combination of civics lesson and shadowy...

How Energy Industry Benefited From Keystone XL Veto

(0) Comments | Posted March 5, 2015 | 3:22 PM

The energy industry in the U.S. has a love/hate relationship with the government. On the one hand, it hates virtually every tax, regulation or barrier between business and production, on the other hand, when production tightens due to government intervention, prices can in fact grow. We are seeing that phenomenon...

(0) Comments | Posted February 9, 2015 | 9:23 AM

After a decade long love affair, NBC and Brian Williams have decided to take a break. At least for the time being.

Is Federalism Practical Today?

(2) Comments | Posted February 5, 2015 | 8:39 AM

The question of whether "federalism" as handed down to us by those who founded this country, seems odd. We have not seen any practical application of it for years.

"Restoring the Constitution" is a phrase that is catching on with people as the influence of the tea party has grown....

Republican Hypocrisy in the Texas Senate

(4) Comments | Posted January 28, 2015 | 2:10 PM

Republicans continually make the case that the harder it is to pass legislation, the better. That is why the power to filibuster -- a super majority in the U.S. Senate -- is required to squash debate on an issue. The idea behind this is to slow down the growth and...

How the GOP Could Support Obama's Free College Program

(0) Comments | Posted January 22, 2015 | 9:02 AM

It is clear that Barack Obama is pushing a progressive or even "class conflict" agenda in these last two years of his administration. One can see this clearly between his call for a significant tax increase geared towards the top 1 percent of income earners and a push for "free"...

When it comes to the issue of "minority rights," thoughts immediately wander to race, gender, age, or sexual preference. In the state of Texas, there is a different type of minority rights battle at stake and the war over it went all the way to the Texas Supreme Court.

America's Love for Small Business and Other Romantic Notions

(0) Comments | Posted December 23, 2014 | 9:01 AM

There is a mythology about businesses in America. We see that the vast majority of the companies in this country are small (50 or fewer employees) and conclude it is a unique part of the nation's character. We are told that small businesses are right up there with apple pie,...

Former Radical, Bestselling Author: Obama Is a 'Racist' and 'Communist'

(0) Comments | Posted December 11, 2014 | 1:59 PM

David Horowitz was the poster child of the radical left in the 1960s. His parents were card-carrying members of the Communist Party USA for many years, and he was both a footsoldier and propagandist of the hard left's socialist agenda in this country and was considered one of the founders...

Obama Makes Conservative Case Against Term Limits

(1) Comments | Posted December 2, 2014 | 2:30 PM

The Tea Party revived the cry for term limits in recent years and it was a centerpiece proposal of the 1994 "Contract with America" GOP victories.

Economic History and Thanksgiving

(0) Comments | Posted November 24, 2014 | 12:45 PM

Thanksgiving is certainly one of my favorite holidays. As an adult with many children, Christmas has lost some of its charm and there are few things more enjoyable than getting fat and watching holiday specials (especially those important football games).

However, one of the things I do not enjoy is...
