Is It Time for the GOP to Scale Back on Social Issues?

Posted: June 15, 2015 at 4:20 pm   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

I read with keen interest the results of a recent poll: But those willing to take part in the poll did more than choose their favorite for the GOP nomination. They also answered a question about which issues they found most pressing, and the results bear further review. To be sure, most of the conference […]

Income inequality myths!

Posted: November 30, 2014 at 12:45 pm   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories, Videos

Reprint: Originally published on Oct 30, 2011 As it is usually cited by the left—”the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer”—it is absolutely a myth: There have been a lot of news stories today about a study by the Congressional Budget Office that compares incomes earned in 1979 and 2007. The Associated Press describes the […]

Enough with the income inequality stuff!

Posted: November 29, 2014 at 7:45 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

Reprint:  Originally published on Nov 1, 2011 I must say, I find it distasteful in the extreme, this use of “income inequality” as some sort of populist talking point and means to acquire more power. Its focus on envy, and then its use of theft to rectify the supposed injustice, is immorality masquerading as some great […]

The Tea Party vs. the Pundits—a Confusion of Ends

Posted: October 16, 2013 at 5:00 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories, Videos

The political punditocracy, both Left and Right, is heaping piles of abuse on Ted Cruz and the Tea Party Movement for having pursued a “doomed strategy” to get Obamacare defunded, thereby damaging GOP approval ratings. Karl Rove whines that a whole news cycle has been wasted. Tsk, tsk, tsk. The Leftist pundits are fairly gleeful over […]

All the July 21 Sunday talk shows featured something about the Detroit bankruptcy filing.  Seven minutes of excerpts from two of those shows appear in the video below. First, NBC’s Meet the Press roundtable provided a clear example of how the Left instinctively views a crisis like Detroit’s.  Namely, says former Democrat Governor Jennifer Granholm:  […]

Posted: June 18, 2013 at 9:45 am   /   Arizona, Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories, Videos

June 11, 2013:  Clear, positive, and constructive, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) speaks on the Senate floor in opposition to the 1076 pages of Gang-of-Eight immigration bill as it is currently written.
