bloomberg story Supposedly, the Fed is doing “all it can” to “get the economy moving.” But because all political contrivances can do is move wealth around, rather than produce real wealth, any “good” done by the Federal Reserve must come from somewhere else. Thus, the St. Louis Fed reports: The average young family—which we define as a single- or multi-person family unit headed by someone under 40—has recovered only about one-third of the wealth it lost during the financial crisis and recession.

Dems Pretend Republicans Are the Destroyers, Even Though Minimum Wage Will Slash Economy's Throat

George Miller It is amazing how violently the Democrats shout about how the increase in the minimum wage law is the key to economic salvation.

Nevertheless, Democrat Representative George Miller of California insisted the Republicans are suffocating the economy by not passing this pay increase. According to CNS News, Rep.

Coward Suspends Student For Pointing-Pencil Allegation: “We Must Do Our Duty”

no pencil I really don’t want a future for America filled with violent upheaval. But, apart from any question of attempted state power grabs and local resistance, when I see a story like this, I am tempted to think America is going to become another Afghanistan or Somalia. What can we expect to happen when the people in charge are such obvious tyrants and cowards, men scared of shadows and monsters? A boy was suspended because someone shouted about him, as he twirled his pencil in class, “He’s Read more [...]

Barack Obama Discovers He Is Valuable to The Private Sector; Gets Angry About It

Predictably (and ludicrously) the President attacked those who benefited from his value in the free market. Here’s the CNN Money’s account: “White House slams Samsung's Obama-Ortiz selfie.” Samsung has gone one selfie too Read more [...]

The Gender Wage Gap & Liberal Economic Superstitions

women cheaper Consider two groups of people, Group A and Group B. The people in Group A tend to major in engineering, math, and/or computer science. Those in Group B prefer careers in English, education, and psychology, and they usually stop in mid-career and drop out of the full-time workforce for a few years.
