The self-destruction of US farmers

Katie Kieffer: Next Time, Try Rogaine

How to not share the hair.  “Desperate” is not disguising a bald spot with spray paint or treating a thinning scalp with Rogaine; desperate is murdering over a lock of human hair—and unemployed Americans are growing desperate. Despite Michelle Obama’s claim that her hubby unleashed a “huge recovery,” the only visible recovery is on    ... MORE

Windsor Mann: We Should Ignore Michelle Obama

Why listen to an unelected busybody?        Last month, Michelle Obama took an "unusual" step, The Washington Post reported, "by delivering White House remarks taking issue with makers of frozen pizza and french fries." I'll say. One scours in vain the speeches of Martha Washington and Eleanor Roosevelt for proclamations about     ... MORE

John Stossel: Eat Without Fear

Don't be afraid of your food.        It's easy to scare people about what's in their food, but the danger is almost never real. And the fear itself kills. Take the panic over genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. Ninety percent of all corn grown in America is genetically modified now. That means it grew from a seed that scientists altered by      ... MORE

Jeff Stier: Obesity Police Launch A Needless War

The relentless effort of regulators to reduce options. If there’s agreement about anything in our hotly-politicized environment today it is that while we work to find sensible and principled solutions to real-world problems, we also need to do a better job coming to consensuses. But when it comes to addressing obesity, the most prominent public   ... MORE

Obamas Cost America Far More Than Royals Cost Britain

Is it hate or envy toward the rich?   US taxpayers spent a staggering $1.4 Billion (yes, with a B) on the Obamas according to author Robert Keith Gray in his new book Presidential Perks Gone Royal! Compare that to only $57.8 million the Brits shelled out for their royals and you have to ask what is going on with President Obama. Now word comes that he and  ... MORE

Rich Lowry: The Party Of Government

Democrats have one true allegiance.     At the Democratic National Convention, the Charlotte host committee knew its audience. “Government,” the narrator says in a video produced by the committee for the opening of the convention, “is the only thing we all belong to.” The Obama campaign quickly disavowed the video. But it captured all  ... MORE

Greg Beato: Michelle Obama Shrinks Your Snickers

King-sized no more. In 1998 a Colorado handyman got swept up in an avalanche that buried his snowmobile and left him stranded in a blizzard. For five days and four nights, rescue teams struggled to locate him. Luckily, the Snickers bar he had in his pocket was a king-sized version. Every one of its 510 calories helped him survive his ordeal.   ... MORE
