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.

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.

If The GOP Won’t Win The Argument There’s No Way They’ll Win The War

“Climate Denier.” One of the environmental advocates who coined this term recently revealed to Jean Chemnick, a reporter for E&E, one of the Left’s most potent weapons in dominating the policy discourse (even while, often although not always, losing political battles).

Math Texts: The Horrors, The Horrors

Everybody complains about Common Core. Before that, the New New Math. Before that, the New Math. Parents seem to sense that “The textbooks in my day were not too bad, but these new ones are just off-the-charts horrific.” I’d say they’re only half-right. For generations, textbooks have been really bad. Here is an article about […]
