Liberals Love the Minimum Wage — Though It Hurts People Liberals Love

April 5th, 2024 2:41 PM

On April 1, the new California $20-per-hour minimum wage for fast-food workers went into effect. In signing the bill, California Gov. Gavin Newsom rejected the view that such a wage hike — 25% above the state’s current minimum wage — hurts teenagers who disproportionately benefit from fast-food jobs and for whom this becomes their entry into the job market. Newsom said: “That’s a romanticized…

One More Try at Reducing the Debt

April 4th, 2024 10:28 AM

“Neither a borrower nor a lender be.”– Polonius to his son Laertes in “Hamlet” It may be too late given the number of Americans who have willingly allowed themselves to become dependent on government more than themselves, but it’s worth trying. Our $34 trillion debt is unsustainable, according to most economists. If we don’t act soon, we will be worse off than we are now. Our economy…

This Is Not the Soviet Union, Mr. Biden

March 14th, 2024 1:12 PM

In 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed. It marked the end of an experiment that lasted almost a century testing the premise that godless secularization, turning control of people’s lives over to other people to rule them, who decide what others need and how they should live and conduct their lives, is the answer for mankind. In the free world, the collapse of the Soviet Union was cause for…

Washington Needs an Intervention on Spending

March 13th, 2024 4:56 PM

When some people appear beyond help because of addiction or other circumstances they can’t control, family members have been known to stage an intervention. Congress and President Biden need an intervention as their addiction to spending exceeds anything seen in history. In his State of the Union address last week, the president invoked one of his party’s favorite lines about corporations and…

‘Sinful!’ CNN Hypes Senate Dems Bashing House GOP Over Budget Battle

February 27th, 2024 8:32 PM

Amidst the scare of a government shutdown, CNN News Central provided its viewers Tuesday morning with only the dramatic “expressions of heartburn” of Senate Democrats rather than the concerns and explanations from Senate Republicans or from the accused House Republicans. One would think that the opinions of the House Republicans would be considered far more crucial information to…

Securing Our Border at Home, Defending Our Values Globally

January 5th, 2024 5:51 PM

With migrants now flooding our Southwestern border at a reported 10,000 seeking entry daily, it is essential that we take steps to crystalize a national immigration policy. Republicans insist that the $74 billion in funds that the Biden administration is asking in aid for Ukraine and Israel be part of a larger package that deals with border security and comprehensive immigration policy.…

Dracula, Spending Cuts, and Speaker Mike Johnson

November 2nd, 2023 11:25 AM

Among the top priorities for newly selected House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-L A ) was his announced intention to form a bipartisan panel to cut massive spending that has led to an unsustainable $33 trillion national debt. The pragmatist in me cheers, but the cynic in me says asking Congress to cut spending is like asking Dracula to cut back on his consumption of blood. Spending helps keep…

What We Need Is a Renovation

October 27th, 2023 11:12 AM

Some popular shows on PBS and cable TV are about renovating old houses – taking dilapidated, out-of-fashion and dreary houses and turning them into modern, functioning, and attractive places in which to live. Renovation is precisely what is needed in our country whose national debt, open borders and as we’ve seen in recent weeks our university and public education system are in dire need of…

Why Bidenflation Defines Bidenomics

October 12th, 2023 4:48 PM

As the world burns and President Joe Biden’s inadequacies grow only more obvious, Democrats reassure themselves that voters next year will care most of all about domestic issues. And there, they think, Biden has something to be proud of: Bidenomics. The economy has delivered good news in recent months — inflation is slowing and employment is booming.

Entitlements, Spending Are the Real Problem (Not Kevin McCarthy)

October 5th, 2023 5:59 PM

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley got to the heart of the government shutdown fireworks in her appearance on Fox News Sunday. “Let's be clear what the Freedom Caucus is really trying to do; they are trying to cut spending.” That's of course correct. One would be hard-pressed to find any Republican, Freedom Caucus member or not, who does not understand the gravity of the state of…

Nets Wail Federal Bureaucrats Won't Get Paid During Govt Shutdown

September 25th, 2023 8:21 PM

With the deadline to avert a government shutdown just days away, all three evening news broadcasts went back to a familiar playbook they've used since at least the Reagan administration where they find government bureaucrats who will cry poor due to not receiving a paycheck during a potential shutdown. This isn't even the case most times since most government employees get paid on a bi-weekly…

Budget Gimmicks: D.C. Labels Everything an ‘Emergency’ to Spend More

September 25th, 2023 11:51 AM

Did you survive the budget cuts from the last debt ceiling fight? President Joe Biden called them “draconian,” while Republicans praised the deal’s “historic reductions in spending.” But both parties conned us, as my new video explains. What they call “cuts” were just a reduction in their planned spending increase. Instead of raising spending by 7.8%, they increased it by “only” 3.9%. Only…
