Why Is the SEC Helping Target CEOs?

The SEC is now requiring information to be reported that could easily allow Occupy Wall Street types to target CEOs. The Los Angeles Times reports, “How much do CEOs make compared to their workers? We’ll know in 2018.” The Securities and Exchange Commission approved a new rule Wednesday morning requiring publicly traded companies to disclose the pay gap between chief executives and their workers. Chief executives’ pay is already disclosed in company proxy statements, so what’s new is that Read more […]

Why Would the FBI Hide Information About A Plot To Use Snipers to Kill “Occupy Houston” Leaders?

There was a bizarre story in the Houston Chronicle this week about a judge ordering the FBI to explain why they are withholding information. A federal judge has ordered the FBI to explain why it withheld some information requested by a graduate student for his research on a plot to assassinate Occupy Houston protest leaders. Ryan Noah Shapiro, a doctoral student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass., filed a lawsuit April 29, 2013, against the U.S. Department of Justice in Read more […]

Dear Tom Perkins: Why Comparing Hatred Of The Rich To Nazism Is Misguided

Tom, I had never heard of you before I read about you at Newser: A billionaire venture capitalist has sparked a furor with a worried letter to the Wall Street Journal. In the brief piece, Tom Perkins notes “the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany (and) its war on its ‘one percent,’ namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the ‘rich.'” He continues: “From the Occupy movement to the demonization of the rich embedded in virtually every word of our local newspaper, the Read more […]

Just Kids With A DREAM?

In light of the immigration bill that the Senate passed yesterday, a mere three days after it was introduced (don’t worry, I’m sure they read all thousand-plus pages of it in that window of time), I want to talk about the hopeless romanticism of the so-called DREAMers. Democrats in 2001 wanted a heart-strings-tugging name to dub their bill that would do a whole bunch of happy things for illegally immigrated college Marxists and Che Guevara wannabes, so they brainstormed until they could come up Read more […]

Children’s Book Wants 3 Year Olds Chanting ‘Union Power’

As a parent, you know that when your kids are young and learning to read that they are very impressionable.  Many of the values, likes and dislikes are formed during these early years and trust me, the liberals know it and are using it to brainwash the next generation. One of the most impressionable tools to use on young children are their first books, especially ones that teach them basic learning skills such as their alphabet.  I’m in my sixties and I still remember many of the objects associated Read more […]

Parasites Kill the Hostess: No More Twinkies, Wonder Bread, or Jobs

Occupy Wall Street should be rejoicing. They want to “end corporate greed” and, yesterday, they ended it. It was only a one source of corporate greed among many, but I’m sure there will be more successes in spreading virtue (and poverty) in the near future. Reuters reports that Hostess Brands is going bankrupt. This is not the “let’s reschedule our payments” kind of bankruptcy, but the “sell every piece of hardware we have to whoever will bid for it” kind of bankruptcy. So the Read more […]
