CBO Predicts 2018 Will Mean Unsustainable Debt

us over cliff The CBO predicts 2018 will end a good period in American finance, but he is assuming the economy continues to recover. I expect the mainstream media, to the extent they cover the story, will spin the Congressional Budget Office report as a “glass half full” story. But the CBO predicts 2018 will be when the glass starts emptying. I think the Washington Times headline is accurate: “CBO report forecasts unsustainable debt in long term.” The economy is sluggish but growing and inflation remains Read more [...] Continue reading →

Can Federal Judges Run Public Schools?

gavel scales law books Judicial tyranny, specifically in our American court system, has usurped legislative jurisdiction, and I am so bold as to add Divine jurisdiction, in our Constitutional Republic. We saw its egregious head again this past weekend after a Mississippi school district canceled Brandon High School’s marching band playing of the Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art” during halftime at Friday night’s football season opener. The reason? It was decided that singing a hymn was too similar Read more [...] Continue reading →

Barack Obama Orders Energy Companies, Conservatives to Fall in Line

solar panels All energy companies should bow to his immense wisdom about the entire future of the global environment and economy. Having just suggested that Obama may be deliberately antagonizing conservatives by sounding completely arrogant, let me now hasten to add that there is no doubt that the President is the incarnation of arrogance and self-worship. How else could a man with his track record demand submission from energy companies and conservatives? How could he not realize how stupid he sounds? Yet Read more [...] Continue reading →

Are Republican Voters "Crazies"?

03312012Obama President Barack Obama is happy to call the people who swept the Democrats out of the Senate and the House "the crazies." The Hill reports on a new level of arrogance and casual disrespect from our President: "President Obama has a new term for opponents: 'The crazies'" President Obama has a new term to describe his opponents: "The crazies." On his first day back from vacation, the president hit the road to attend a clean energy summit in Las Vegas hosted by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid Read more [...] Continue reading →

If Abortion Is OK, then Why Shouldn’t Women Conceive In Order to Sell Livers and Brains?

stemexpress brochure People who claim abortion is OK should prove they mean it by advocating that women get pregnant just so they can sell the baby parts. Supposedly there is some vast difference between a stillborn baby and an aborted fetus. But if Planned Parenthood is really so confident of that “fact” (which is really just a stupid lie), then why don’t they go all the way? I was reminded of the issue by the release of the eighth video from the Center for Medical Progress. As Life News reports, Read more [...] Continue reading →

Welfare Is the Highest Paying Entry-Level Job in 38 States

Welfare states How many people have been diverted from the workforce thanks to our welfare system? There are obvious problems with giving people “free” money. We could list the fact that the money is taken from the people who earned it, or that the debt pyramid that funds the “free” money is unsustainable and will end in crisis. We could point out that people drop out of the labor market because the free money makes it possible, thus lowering productivity at the same time that we are increasing obligations. Read more [...] Continue reading →

Obamacare Stimulates the Regulation of Personal Trainers

obamacare logo Personal trainers have been doing just fine but government money is going to change the industry, punishing many businesses. The Washington Post reports, “In the nation’s capital, a new business to regulate: D.C.’s personal trainers.” After decades of unregulated existence in all 50 states, the booming field of personal trainers is braced for a wave of scrutiny that is expected to transform the industry and could make or break some of the biggest fitness companies in the country. The Read more [...] Continue reading →

So How Smart Was Boasting in the Stock Market, Mr. President?

wall st bull Only two months ago Barack Obama claimed he saved the stock market. Earlier this month I pointed out that not even Politifact could support the President’s boasting in the economy. Indeed, Obama’s boasting was immense. Consider this Business Insider report from exactly two months ago: “Obama: I saved the stock market.” President Barack Obama says he saved the American economy ... and its stock market. Obama did a victory lap on comedian Marc Maron's podcast, WTF, earlier this week, and Read more [...] Continue reading →

AirBnB Under Attack in Boston

airbnb Supposedly, AirBnB is a danger because it is “a completely unregulated industry.” We should pray for a day when all industries are unregulated. What Mark Horne wrote awhile back about Santa Monica’s attack on AirBnB applies pretty well to the recent news story about Boston. To understand how stupid and short-sighted Santa Monica is being, let’s think about three groups of people. First, there are people who need temporary residences and are willing to pay for those residences. These people Read more [...] Continue reading →

Mother, Children, Terrorized by Police by Mistake

SWAT gunpoint She was naked, clutching her children, and praying as her fiancé was also terrorized by police. I guess Marianne Diaz should count herself lucky that no one in her household was shot dead, while lying face down. CBS Boston reports, “SWAT Team Raids Wrong Worcester Home, Residents Say.” Marianne Diaz and her fiancé, Bryant Alequin, felt their lives were in danger when a SWAT team raided their third-floor apartment on Hillside Street with guns drawn. Diaz says she grabbed her seven-year-old Read more [...] Continue reading →

Cecile Richards Is Jason Bourne and Planned Parenthood Is Treadstone

bourne Actually, Cecile Richards is not Jason Bourne (yet?), but the movie franchise shows how Planned Parenthood recruits women. In the movie trilogy Jason Bourne was an action hero—virtually a superhero. But what made him so special wasn’t just his strength, speed, accuracy, or other skills. He was special because he had been brainwashed to serve a secret group within the CIA called “Treadstone.” The premise of the trilogy is that an especially evil action (involving killing children) is presented Read more [...] Continue reading →

How Rape Culture Demands Helpless Women

rape free campus A recent article on Britain’s rape culture demonstrates the self-destructiveness of whining and refusing to help oneself. I wouldn’t normally read this Vice story but it was trending on Twitter so I got curious. The headline is straightforward: “Rape Is at an All-Time High in Britain, So Why Are Its Sexual Abuse Charities Fighting for Funding?” There were parts that were decent but the overall message is horrendous. People are inviting rape by adopting the attitude demonstrated in this Read more [...] Continue reading →
