It’s a simple enough headline: Brewer signs new business tax cuts into law. But it is a very important step in restoring a healthy economic climate in Arizona. Simply put, business taxes are among the most damaging to an economy.  A recent study from the OECD indicates just how damaging: This paper investigates the design of tax […]

Paul Ryan: Spending does not equal compassion

Posted: May 10, 2012 at 5:00 pm   /   Politics, Videos

Many of us have been shouting it from the rooftops for years: Don’t cede the compassion ground to the left! Their policies don’t help the poor. Don’t let them paint you as less compassionate than they are. They spend lots of money and create programs and departments, and then claim that—whether they work well or not—this […]

Raul Grijalva refuses a fair fight in Democratic primary

Posted: May 10, 2012 at 12:15 pm   /   Arizona, Politics

Grijalva’s opponent in the Congressional District 3 primary has come out swinging, accusing the long-time incumbent Representative of Chicago-style tactics.  It appears that the Democratic Party machinery from the top down has more or less blacklisted Arreguin, refusing him access to voter information. From Arreguin’s team: Is this Chicago?  On May 4, 2012, Arizona State […]

Team Romney fights back with Mothers’ Day ad!

Posted: May 9, 2012 at 5:00 pm   /   Elections, Politics, Videos

The left wanted to create a War on Women theme, but then their natural Jacobin tendency towards hate, rage, and calumny got the better of them, and they gave Romney ammunition for the perfect response. Careful what you wish for! [FeaturedVideo]   Ann Romney raised 5 boys. She successfully battled breast cancer and multiple sclerosis. […]

Two conservative women (and one Miss America) in the Congressional Black Caucus?

Posted: May 8, 2012 at 3:20 pm   /   Elections, Politics

By now, many conservatives have heard of—and developed into a cheering section for—Mia Love, Mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, running for Congress in Utah’s newly drawn 4th district. Her popularity extends far beyond the borders of Utah, and for obvious reasons: she is focused, determined, radiantly optimistic, and she quotes Bastiat from memory! She is also […]

The Government Husband

Posted: May 6, 2012 at 4:42 am   /   Politics

Paul Ryan is right that Julia portrait is “creepy” and “demeaning” As we noted on Friday, the Obama campaign has been tripping over itself a fair amount recently, and the “Life of Julia” may end up being like Obama’s Attack Watch website—an easily parodied misstep that reinforces stereotypes about Obama and his mode of governance.

Obama, meet Sophocles and Aeschylus

Posted: May 2, 2012 at 11:00 am   /   Elections, Politics

Earlier today, we pointed to a video from Veterans for a Stronger America that hits Obama—hard—on his excessive demonstration in the end zone celebrating the killing of Bin Laden. James Taranto had a great piece on the subject yesterday, which, as usual, had a pithy title: A Giant Leap for Richard Nixon Obama manages to […]

Obama and the UAW: How is any of this “fair”?

Posted: April 30, 2012 at 5:00 pm   /   Politics

Barack Obama and the left love to use the word “fairness” like a cudgel. But very little that they espouse has anything to do with actual fairness. For something to be fair, it must be “in accordance with the rules or standards; legitimate; just.” Treating people unequally under the laws is not “fair,” as it […]

Ordering a pizza in our near future

Posted: April 29, 2012 at 4:45 pm   /   Politics, Videos

The description calls this “the ACLU s version of ordering a pizza in the future.” I am assuming, based on that, that this was once an ACLU fundraising video, but the identifying information was edited out and the video was reposted. I would expect, as irritating as the ACLU can often be, that they would […]
