Thomas Sowell: The 'Fairness' Fraud

It seems as if, everywhere you turn these days, there are studies claiming to show that America has lost its upward mobility for people born in the lower socioeconomic levels. But there is a sharp difference between upward "mobility," defined as an    ... MORE

Paul Bedard: Excedrin Headache No. 2013

67% call it a 'bad year,' 40% a disaster.     Overshadowed by the bungled debut of Obamacare and congressional gridlock, most Americans in a new poll dubbed 2013 a bad year that will be quickly forgotten. For more than four-in-10, the perils of 2013 hit home hard. “Put simply, most Americans are happy to see 2013 go,” said the latest         ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Race-Hustling Results

Scoring the racial grievance industry.        Years ago, someone said that, according to the laws of aerodynamics, bumblebees cannot fly. But the bumblebees, not knowing the laws of aerodynamics, go ahead and fly anyway. Something like that happens among people. There have been many ponderous academic writings and dour editorials in the       ... MORE

The Good Guys Are NOT Coming To Save Us

by Paul Rosenberg.   A lot of Americans know that the US government is out of control. Anyone who has cared enough to study the US Constitution even a little knows this.

Katie Kieffer: Counting Your Blessings, Backwards

Ten, nine, eight … what do you appreciate?   When life seems crazy or hopeless, count your blessings backwards—that is, find something to be thankful for in the midst of darkness. It is reverse psychology for adults. Think of the most onerous regulation or politician in your life and find one reason you are thankful for this trial. For example,   ... MORE

More Years For Obama, More Tears For America

by Charles Hurt.   All that for nothing. It was the billion-dollar election that did not decide one single damned thing. Republicans control the House. Democrats control the Senate. And the White House remains in Democratic hands with absolutely no mandate whatsoever. Another four years with no hope of change. In this environment with this   ... MORE

Washington Times: A Regulatory Drug Shortage

Cancer patients endangered by FDA bureaucrats. The last thing a sick person wants to hear is that ample supplies of a life-saving medicine have been replaced by a surplus of red tape. That’s precisely what’s happening nationwide, with 82 percent of hospitals reporting shortages so severe that treatment must be put on hold, according to the     ... MORE
