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

(0) Comments | Posted December 11, 2014 | 2:59 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 | 3:30 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. Of course, that particular reform proposal quickly parted from the newly elected members of that class. Term limits has that effect on politicians --...

Economic History and Thanksgiving

(0) Comments | Posted November 24, 2014 | 1:45 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...

The Case for Privatizing Unemployment Insurance

(0) Comments | Posted November 17, 2014 | 7:53 PM

A new GOP majority will be looking for creative policy proposals to differentiate themselves from President Obama.

The Year of the Schizophrenic Voter?

(0) Comments | Posted November 13, 2014 | 1:54 PM

Political pundits are describing the 2014 elections as the most devastating defeat of Democrats in recent history. Republicans increased their majority in the U.S. House that it already controlled, took over the U.S. Senate, and even dominated state Houses.

Why the GOP Seems Out of Touch to Average Voters

(2) Comments | Posted November 4, 2014 | 9:28 AM

With only hours left in the 2014 elections, Republicans are still unable to frame or even address the issues of greatest concern to their constituents. Just last week, in anticipation of a likely GOP win of the Senate (in spite of their best efforts to stay a minority party), Sen....

It Is Not Just Blue State and Red State but Urban and Rural

(2) Comments | Posted October 23, 2014 | 3:29 PM

The late Tim Russert, the much beloved political and news broadcaster, was often described as a genius for developing the simple idea of "Red state" versus "Blue state" in summing up the results of elections in general and presidential elections in particular. I think he had the best of intentions...

Immigration Is Not the Only Way Texas Could Turn Blue

(111) Comments | Posted October 8, 2014 | 4:20 PM

Republicans, especially in border states, are terrified by the prospects of easing the path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. The reasons range from more noble ones (immigrants often compete for the very few jobs available for the many low skilled U.S. workers) to more political ones (if they could vote,...

Progressives Decry Obama as a Lawbreaker

(0) Comments | Posted September 18, 2014 | 7:03 PM

Before Barack Obama was even elected he was called a "law breaker" by many Americans who didn't believe the Senator had met the basic requirement of being a natural born citizen.

It didn't end there. Immediately after being elected, elected officials of both parties challenged the constitutionality of the...

Get Bland for Rand?

(0) Comments | Posted September 12, 2014 | 11:48 AM

In 1967 and 68, politics was an "old man" endeavor. Then, the image of every political campaign, particularly for president, was typically of older white males. In those years, you had to be 21 to vote, and those that were that young and were involved went to lengths to look...

Joan Rivers Died Like She Lived: Shocking People

(3) Comments | Posted September 8, 2014 | 11:28 AM

I remember growing up and seeing Joan Rivers on TV. My mom, an import from the very blue collar northern parts of England, always considered herself quite proper, in spite of her humble beginnings. She had "Victorian values" and was often willing to describe herself as a "prude."

Minimum Wage, Pandering Politicians, and Crony Capitalism

(4) Comments | Posted September 5, 2014 | 1:21 AM

Many policy makers seem to live in a dream world. "It is terrible that the working poor have to live on such a low minimum wage," they say. They address this problem by arbitrarily raising the minimum wage, although many jobs are worth less than the amount they set. This...

Rick Perry's Indictment Could Make Him Tea Party Poster Child

(7) Comments | Posted August 26, 2014 | 1:23 PM

There was a time in politics where the last thing a person wanted associated with one's name is a criminal indictment. Recently, Texas Republican Governor, Rick Perry, surrendered to authorities following an indictment for allegedly abusing his power in office. Typically, when celebrities face such actions, they find the most...

The Super Rich and Their Strange Allies

If you read the fairy tale weaved by the major media and our history books, we would believe that liberal policies are beneficial to everyone, whether those policies are popular are not. The upper classes can complain all they want, but they sleep better at night knowing that the government...
