Government Trying to Raise any Group’s Wages is Always a bad Deal

Posted: February 13, 2017 at 8:21 pm   /   Business, Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Among the different discussions following every Super Bowl, a prominent source of debate seems to always be the game’s commercials.

Car Review: 2017 Hyundai Elantra

Posted: February 11, 2017 at 11:15 am   /   Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories

First, they aren’t twins. The Hyundai Elantra – and the Kia Forte. This isn’t Camaro/Firebird – or Tahoe/Escalade. The same thing sold under two different labels.

Car Review: 2017 Subaru Forester

You may have noticed that there are lots of Subarus (all kinds, including ancient Brats from the ’80s) running around places where it snows a lot. This is what they call in law enforcement a clue.

As I have often told you, dear readers, it can be very frustrating, how so many on our side seem to approach Hollywood.  Everyone working there viewed with suspicion, every little thing taken in the worst way possible.  This is a big reason for why I do what I do, with the “Culture Current” series.  […]
