How I reached an Immigrant Voter (Reader Post)

I was speaking with an owner of my gym a couple of weeks ago. He was born and raised in South Korea, and he speaks functional, not fluent, English with a heavy accent. We had never had a long conversation before, only discussing exercises and sports, but when I asked him how business was going,… Read more »

As Scandalpalooza rolls on, Jonah Goldberg wrote about this particular gem on how the Democrats are responding to the IRS scandals So the @GOP has FOIAed the IRS. How original. And political. So much for a bipartisan inquiry. Typical #GOPOverreach — Brad Woodhouse (@woodhouseb) May 22, 2013 with an analysis that wasn’t too different from my own… Read more »

How President Obama Can Resolve All of the Scandals, or Why I Don’t Have a Career in Politics [Reader Post]

By 28 Comments 706 views

It seems that lately each day brings either a new scandal or some sickening new wrinkle to an existing one. Naturally, this administration does what every administration does, only the Obama White House seems to have turned it into an art form. They spin, obfuscate, deny, point blame, or just lie when they have to…. Read more »

One of the beauties of a free society, particularly one built on the rule of law, free markets and individual liberty is that people are often free to pursue things that are simply not possible elsewhere. Entrepreneurship in the United States thrives like it does in no other place. From restaurants that let you choose… Read more »

Will big government be felled by big government overreach, arrogance and overconfidence?

By 32 Comments 656 views

One of my favorite shows is a program called “Person of Interest’ on CBS. The story revolves around a government computer that knows when someone somewhere is in danger and passes that information along to a team of ex government types who go on to save that particular Person of Interest. The show’s device is… Read more »

It’s Time for the Wealthy to Pay for their Fair Share of Taxes, Part II [Reader Post]

I’m not a fan of Ann Coulter – her style is a little too abrasive for me, and while I usually agree with the philosophy of her arguments I’ve generally found her supporting info to be too factually challenged to take seriously. But once in a while she makes an excellent point, and this is… Read more »

Election Postmortem – The Point Everybody is Missing [Reader Post]

By 49 Comments 1,423 views

By now everybody knows about the results of Tuesday’s elections and we’ve seen tons of analysis. The predominant themes have been that only in hindsight did Romney run a horrible campaign, that the Tea Party extremism had been rejected by the voters, that this is truly Obama’s mandate, all of the Republican forecasting models were horrifically wrong, and that the Republican party’s only hope is to make drastic changes to its principles if it hopes to survive. Did I miss anything? It’s natural to knee jerk or overreact when something unexpected happens, so I have advice for both sides: don’t read too much into this election and base your next moves only on what happened Tuesday.

Who Are You Calling an Extremist? [Reader Post]

By 30 Comments 647 views

This might have happened recently or it might just be the “Frog in a pot of boiling water” effect, but the recent controversy around Chick Fil A and gay marriage made me notice how that debate fits into a bigger picture. I’ve read articles, seen blog posts, and seen tons of electrons spilled on Facebook1 over the Chick Fil A / Gay Marriage issue. I’ve noticed that a great deal of the leftist sentiment often uses carefully crafted language to define their opponents’ positions – “against gay rights”, “anti-gay”, or my personal favorite, “Extreme anti-gay”.

Say What? August 6th, 2012 Edition [Reader Post]

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.: “I don’t think the burden should be on me.  The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes. Why didn’t he release his tax returns?”  Harry Reid, incidentally, has not released any tax returns.

Sen. Chuck Schumer: “Every day Mitt Romney has to talk about tax returns is a bad day for him and a good day for the Democrats.” Chuck’s right on this.
