Media to Herman Cain: You Tell Us What You Did

Media to Herman Cain: You Tell Us What You Did

You have to love the “mainstream” media. Not only have they been in the tank for the Left for years, now they’re adding “profoundly lazy” to “reliable Leftist bias” on their resume. Why do I say that? They don’t know what Herman Cain is supposed to have done, but by golly he needs to explain it to us. I wonder if Cain has ever been in a Turkish prison?

Star Parker on the Welfare State

Star Parker on the Welfare State

Reason TV did an interview of Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE). In the opening of the interview, she nails the socialist approach of the Left to the wall: “This whole notion that we should even have a ‘war on poverty’ dismisses the fact that individuals have a role in their own lives.”

Thinking Christianly About Economics

Thinking Christianly About Economics

Your immediate response may be, “What does Christianity have to do with economics?” In response, I would say: everything, if you think of economics as the system and means of production and exchange whereby people meet their own and each other’s essential needs.

The Leftists in Oakland’s “Occupy Wall Street” effort are all upset that police used riot gas against them when they tried to remove these filthy squatters from public property.

All the Corporations Patronized by Occupy Wall Street

In a video reminiscent of my “Spitting in the Wind” article a few weeks ago, and the enlightening graphic someone came up with to show how much the Occupy Wall Street idiots owe to the corporate structure they so loathe, The Unlikely Conservative has put together a short video to help us all better understand the dedication of this movement. He points out how the average Marxist hairball protester probably patronizes a minimum of 22 evil corporations in a hard day of railing about evil corporations.

Those Who Read the Past Write the Future

Those Who Read the Past Write the Future

America has provided more freedom for more people than any other country that has ever existed. It is also my opinion that powers of anti-freedom have sought to regain control since the Revolution, and if those who have been too busy working and raising families don’t spend enough time to learn what history teaches we will soon earn the reward for the failure to hold on to the past. We will lose the future.

Is My House an Investment?

Is My House an Investment?

Just because something costs a lot doesn’t mean it is an investment. Investments should appreciate at a rate that grows faster than inflation and gains purchasing power. And spending your money on noninvestments can jeopardize a plan to reach your goals of financial freedom.

All the news in the paper is not necessarily bad

All the news in the paper is not necessarily bad

After hearing for the umpteenth time, “It seems like all we read any more is bad news. Isn’t there any good news any more?” There is plenty of good news out there as well. All you have to do is look for it. Here are some for instances.
