Protecting Thought or Paychecks?

I spent yesterday evening driving to our local high school, which is the polling place for any votes that relate to membership on the local school board. Equally important, but much more inflammatory, the school budget is also subject to approval through votes by local citizens. Among the many issues that have an impact on […]

Awful Eight #5: Foundations of Sand‏

Perhaps no Supreme Court decision is better known- or more controversial- than Roe v Wade.   My decision to include it on the “worst” list stems not from a stance on the abortion issue but from questionable jurisprudence. Your opinion on a “woman’s right to choose” or “protecting the life of the unborn” will probably […]

Myths and Causes of Income Inequality

New York Times economics analyst Eduardo Porter recently penned two columns about income inequality in which he claimed that the “job market is not working to distribute wealth” and “has lost much of its power to deliver income gains to working families” over the past four decades. As proof of this, he quoted data on […]

Is America The Greatest Country Ever?

We were driving around town at the beginning of Memorial Day weekend and started to notice how few American flags we saw on the front porches of homes in the various neighborhoods. So we immediately went to Ace Hardware to buy a new bracket for our flag and went home to put it up about […]

Anti-Human Global Warming Alarmists Lack Data

Is there global warming? Does mankind have an influence upon the weather or the climate? If so, how much do man’s actions actually influence the weather? Most importantly; can man, through his actions or in-actions, actually influence the climate in a chosen direction? The answer to the first question is yes. The Earth has been […]

Gov. Chafee has a credible claim to become the most potent threat to upset Mrs. Clinton’s nomination by the Democratic Party. […]

Awful Eight #6: The Power to Regulate Everything Becomes Reality

Background On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or “Obamacare.” The law required virtually everyone in the country to purchase healthcare insurance or pay a penalty, a clause known as the “individual mandate”. Fourteen states immediately filed suit and by January 2011 that number had swelled […]

The Federal Reserve: In Unchartered Territory

We had the occasion recently to catch up with a recent college graduate friend of ours (we have trained hundreds now in The Institute for the Public Trust) who is now in the last year of his Ph.D program in statistical economics, whatever that is. He is a gifted advanced mathematics person with a great […]

Awful Eight #7: You May Now Regulate Everything

Background In February 1937, flush with confidence after his historic 1936 landslide, Franklin Roosevelt made a rare political miscalculation. The first wave of New Deal legislation often found the President at odds with the Court, as the Court struck down one piece of legislation after another. FDR figured he could remedy this inconvenience by packing […]

An Invested Population Doesn’t Riot

Let me generalize. Many people are Democrats, some believe in democracy. Many people are Republicans, some believe in a republic. Those who register Independent or third party find neither of the two major parties to their liking. People of majority northern European ancestry, if registered to vote, are Democrats, Republican or Independent. People of African […]
