Awful Eight: (Dis)Honorable Mentions

Before we get to The Worst Supreme Court Decision of All Time, let’s take a quick look at some doozies that didn’t quite make the cut. The (Dis) honorable mentions below were either mercifully overturned, superceded by an even worse ruling, or are too new to figure out what just happened. Like our Awful Eight, […]

Obama’s Folly

When you think about it, throughout history the United States has struck some pretty good deals with foreign adversaries. In fact, some great ones. Seward’s Folly On March 30, 1867, “U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward sign(ed) a treaty with Russia for the purchase of Alaska for $7 million. Despite the bargain price of […]

Reagan Economist Larry Kudlow Reveals The Republicans’ Secret Agenda

The Revelation: “All we want,” said Kudlow, “is for everybody to get richer.” Therein hangs a tale.  And therein, perhaps, hangs the outcome of a presidential race. The Republican Party (much to the astonishment of practically everyone) is composed exclusively of … people. It thus is subject to human nature. It is undeniable that a […]

How Is Greece Like A NASCAR Driver?

‘They keep turning left and smashing into walls’. So goes an old joke about liberals from conservatives. However, let’s face the truth of the matter: ‘If the country of Greece was a NASCAR entry, it would have already been smashed to smithereens in the past 10 races and disqualified from ever running again under current […]

Our America Initiative Will Sue Commission on Presidential Debates

I’ve made it no secret over the past year or two that I have become completely disillusioned with the two Party duopoly that currently controls our political system.  Politics is a complex beast and there are clearly more than two political philosophies.  Why we allow just two to dominate the debate is beyond me.  It […]

The Emanuel Church Murders and Racial Violence

In the wake of the racially motivated murders of three black men and six black women by a young white man, some individuals are using this crime as a platform to claim that America is teeming with racism and that violence against black people is rising. For example, Karen Attiah of the Washington Post wrote […]

Hate To Say We Told You So…

Hate to say it, but we told you so. We grew up in the days of $300 billion annual budget deficits in the early 1980’s. That doesn’t sound like a lot in these days where $1 trillion deficits were yawned at by the Obama Administration for 4 years after the fiscal crisis was over. They […]

Could The Fast Track For The Trans-Pacific Partnership Be A Bad Thing?

Writing about TPP, “Fast Track,” and all the associated skirmishing is made somewhat difficult by the secrecy of the legislative text. That said, supply-side thought leader John Tamny declares “The TPP is a no-brainer.” (If Tamny means free trade is a no-brainer he surely is right.) So also declares the decorated veteran of the Supply-Side […]

Awful Eight #2: Government by Organized Money

Background The co-existence of elected representatives and the private money to elect them has always been an uneasy one. With contributions come expectations, and the larger the contribution the larger the expectation. And, with a surfeit of money sloshing around, what’s to prevent a dishonest official from using that money for unsavory purposes? Recognizing the […]
