Does the Social Security Trust Fund Really Exist?

In a memorable scene from the classic sitcom Sanford and Son, a legal predicament led Fred Sanford to consider hiring a man who was peddling cut-rate attorney services. When Sanford and the man met, the conversation that ensued went something like this: Sanford: So, you’re a lawyer? Man: That depends on who you ask. Sanford: I’m asking you. [...]

Job Prospects in Our Changing Economy

Wondering how to improve job prospects for so many of the unemployed, Mr. William Galston makes the typical errors of many about job creation in this Wall Street Journal article.

Re-Arming the War on Women

Remember the 2012 GOP “War on Women”? If you didn’t want to pay for a women’s contraception you were denying her “right to healthcare.” If you didn’t want to subsidize an abortion you were “attacking women and their right to birth control.” The Left wanted America to believe the GOP knuckle-draggers were determined to alienate [...]

Abolitionist Movement and the Tea Party‏

If you don’t believe that history repeats itself, then you haven’t taken a close look at the stunning similarities between the Abolitionist Movement of 19th century, and today’s Tea Party.

Well La-dee Frickin’ Da!

One thing that is pretty much confirmed over years and years of experience, empirical evidence and personal observation is this: ’If it appears to be too good to be true, it probably isn’t true’.Right? Politics and public policy isn’t rocket science, you know. The promises of universal coverage; no tax hikes; lowering health care costs and [...]

Audit Reveals Federal Finances are Far Worse Than Publicized Figures

The U.S. Treasury has just released its annual “Financial Report of the United States Government,” which provides an account of the federal government’s finances using accounting standards like those that the government requires of large corporations. Because the federal budget is not bound by these standards, it does not have to account for all of its fiscal obligations. For example, [...]

When TEA and the Status Quo Collide

As the various TEA Parties try to influence politics, they need to be reminded of a few things. Indeed, all the people need to be reminded of those things.

More Leftist Divisiveness

“My point is broader: Stoking class envy is a step in a familiar, dangerous, and highly incendiary process. Any ideology or movement, right or left, that is organized negatively—against rather than for—enjoys an inherent advantage in politics, mobilizing unappeasable energies that never have to default on their announced goal of cleansing the body politic of [...]
