Students Finally Winning the School Choice Fight

September 30th, 2022 10:17 AM

Finally! Now more states will let parents use their tax money to educate their kids at a school they choose. In Arizona, families can get $6,500 to spend on private school, tutoring or even home schooling. The education establishment is horrified -- especially teachers unions. They don't want competition. But competition makes us all better. The Ford Model T was a breakthrough. But it's lousy…

Adam Carolla on Free Speech, Cancel Culture, AOC and Covid Hysteria

September 24th, 2022 10:22 PM

Performers censor themselves -- fearing they might offend. Those who offend Hollywood lose work. Some lose friends. Adam Carolla doesn't care. That's why he's the subject of my video this week. Carolla is one the most successful performers in America. His books are bestsellers. His comedy shows sell out. He hosts one of America's most-listened-to-podcasts. Recently, Carolla dismissed Rep.…

The Greens' New Target Will Cause Global Hunger

September 9th, 2022 11:42 AM

Starvation. Poverty. People struggling to buy medicine and fuel. Disaster happened after one government fell under the influence of the world's environmental extremists. Many “experts” say pure nature is best. United Nations officials now tell politicians that the climate “crisis” demands countries make all sorts of sacrifices, like cutting nitrogen waste.

Labor Union Shortage Is to the Liberal Media's Chagrin

August 31st, 2022 5:41 PM

Monday is Labor Day. Will you celebrate unions? The media does. “Unions are cool again,” reports CBS News. They suggest unionization is booming. “Reporters” practically cheered when a Starbucks in Buffalo, New York, became the first Starbucks to unionize. “A big symbolic win for labor,” The New York Times called it. Since then, more than 180 Starbucks voted to unionize, and 300 filed for union…

Government Corrupts Science With Progressive Nonsense

August 26th, 2022 2:27 PM

“Trust the science,” say the media. Polls show that fewer Americans do. There's good reason for that. “They don't trust science because science is increasingly untrustworthy,” says science writer Andrew Follet in my new video. “The only group that trusts science right now is Democrats.” Sixty-four percent of Democrats have “a great deal” of confidence in the scientific community, compared to…

Volunteers Are Saving Lives in Ukraine

August 19th, 2022 10:54 AM

When Russia attacked Ukraine, “experts” said the country would fall within days. It hasn't. One reason is that the Russian military wasn't as effective as people thought.  Another is that Ukrainians surprised the world by courageously defending their country.  A third reason is that volunteers from everywhere stepped in to help.

Tax Freedom in Puerto Rico

August 4th, 2022 4:35 PM

Want to pay no federal income tax? Move to Puerto Rico. Really. If you move to the island, you can legally pay none. There's also no capital gains tax. You just have to give 4% of your income to Puerto Rico. The tax break was started by a Puerto Rican politician who'd watched years of high taxes fail to improve life on the island. He decided to try something different.

Where’s the Beef? Ask the Feds

July 20th, 2022 10:44 AM

How can it be that with so much cattle in America, we sometimes can't buy meat? At the beginning of the pandemic, Costco, Wegmans and Kroger limited purchases of beef. Hundreds of Wendy's outlets ran out of hamburgers. “How the hell can this be?” says Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., in my new video. “They (Wendy's) were out of hamburger, yet you could see cattle from the drive-thru!” It happens…

Even the West Has Some Dictator Envy

July 14th, 2022 1:24 PM

Some Western leaders envy dictators' powers. President Donald Trump said, when North Korea's Kim Jong-un speaks, “his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same.” President Barack Obama told reporters it would be so much easier to be the president of China. Canada's foolish Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, said he admires China because “their basic dictatorship is allowing them…

How Rent Control Hurts Renters

June 16th, 2022 5:38 PM

Rents have reached record highs. But have no fear, renters! In the Minnesota cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, progressives persuaded people to vote for rent control. That'll punish those greedy landlords! Except, profits are what persuade builders to build things. When profits are high, other builders build. That's what creates more housing and, eventually, lower rents. Put limits on prices…

Government Creates the Baby Formula Shortage

June 2nd, 2022 4:40 PM

Parents still struggle to find baby formula. The left and most media (sorry, same thing?) blame “corporate power run amok.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says, “There might be a need for indictment!” They blame Abbott Laboratories, because it shut down a Similac plant. The Food and Drug Administration says unsanitary conditions led to deaths of two infants, but Abbott denies that its formula…

Stupid Government Rules Create a Pilot Shortage

May 26th, 2022 1:58 PM

Planning to fly this summer? Good luck. Delays are up. Cancellations, too. Why? Because of the pilot shortage. A pilot shortage? How can this be? Flying is a popular job. Some people fly small planes just for fun. Why aren't there enough commercial pilots? Because the government passed another dumb law. In 2009, after a Colgan Air crash near Buffalo, New York, killed 50 people, Congress…

The Real Reason for Record Gas Prices

May 20th, 2022 9:36 AM

The price of gas keeps rising. “The reason for that is because of Putin's war,” said President Joe Biden. But that's impossible. Most of the price rise came before Putin attacked Ukraine. So some politicians simply blame “corporate greed.” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse accuses the oil industry of collecting “excess profit.” Sen. Elizabeth Warren even introduced a bill to…

Organic B.S. With GMOs

May 12th, 2022 1:32 PM

Activists have convinced Americans that “organic” food is better -- healthier, better-tasting, life-extending. As a result, poor parents feel guilty if they can't afford to pay $7 for organic eggs. This misinformation is spread by people like Alexis Baden-Mayer, political director of the Organic Consumers Association. She says organic food is clearly better: “The nutrition is a huge difference…
