  • This healthcare debate among the GOP factions is absolutely stupid and counterproductive

    03/26/2017 5:08:03 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 68 replies
    This is absolutely stupid. These long drawn out debates within the GOP struggling to settle on the nitty gritty about what and who should be covered and at what price is ridiculous. It's NOT your job, gentlemen. All you are doing is playing into the socialist democrats hands. Please consult your pocket constitutions and discover that the power to make these decisions regarding health care and insurance, etc, is not an enumerated power and is not delegated by the constitution to the congress or the federal government. It's reserved to the states and the people. Get OUT of it!! Conservatives...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 10/21/16 | Ron A. Y. Rich
    Trump’s policies in favor of free enterprise and freedom of speech and in favor of all the Amendments to and protections of the U.S. Constitution and Trump’s positions against terrorists and criminals and repressions of freedom of thought Trump may have inadvertently hurt his cause by saying too much, from time to time, and not always in a politically incorrect way (deemed politically correct by most people), but one 4-letter word he has hardly ever used is “even” followed by the 2-letter word “if.” If used properly, and in enough contexts, these two words, “even if,” have the potential to...

    Many of us are gripped with a sense of helplessness in today's chaos-filled world. It seems like terrorism, brutality and unspeakable evil is growing by the day. And it's understandable to think our problems will never be solved by any elected politician or military leader. They won't. In the darkest times in human history, from the days of slavery to the holocaust years of World War II, ordinary people took extraordinary actions to rescue others. In the face of unspeakable evil, regular citizens joined together to build underground railroads and secret passage ways that led people to freedom. Courage was...

    The next time a college professor starts lecturing on the importance of a free and open marketplace of ideas beware. He’s probably going to offer a few platitudes before he throws in an awkward “but,” and then shows his true beliefs about free expression. As a general rule, you can ignore everything that comes before the word “but.” It is usually after he utters his first “but” that he really starts to show his ass. At Western Carolina University (WCU) the faculty senate recently showed its true colors on an important issue of academic freedom. They were approached with an...

    Contracting Business Magazine ^ | Sept 25, 2015 | Matt Michel
    As the owner of a contracting business, do you feel you are under attack? You should. You are. Capitalism and the free enterprise system are under the most relentless assault seen in the post war era. As a contractor you operate within the capitalist system, but may not feel comfortable defending it. Here are ten reasons why capitalism is morally superior to socialism, or statism (i.e., power and decisions are vested in the state or government). Talk about capitalism’s moral superiority the next time you hear someone parroting the politicians, entertainers, academics, clerics, and professional rabble rousers who are all...

    Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton removed a video and photographs of him shooting an AR-15 from Instagram after his race boss—Niki Lauda—ordered him to take them down. The video showed Hamilton wearing ear and eye protection while shooting an AR-15 at a target down range, but some Formula One fans reacted negatively because the video appeared “just hours after a gunman” illegally used a different kind of gun to carry out an attack on a train in France.

    Americans have long complained that the dollar doesn't buy much anymore. Suddenly, the dollar's problem may be that it buys too much — a change that has huge implications across the global economy for consumers, businesses, investors and governments. The U.S. currency's value has surged over the last nine months, reaching levels against some world currencies last seen more than a decade ago. In Europe, it now costs just $1.09 to buy one euro, down from $1.37 a year ago and almost $1.50 four years ago. To put it another way, an American tourist strolling the streets of Paris this...

    In terms of skills and education, Israel probably has the highest level of human capital per person in the whole world. Yet it’s per capita output is mediocre – in the middle of the developed country pack. Why is that? Because Israel has been slow to adopt capitalism. How do I know that? Because Bibi Netanyahu told me that in an interview in Dallas, several years before he became prime minister. Once he became Israel’s leader, he was been able to do something about it. In recent years Israel has become a center for entrepreneurship, innovation and capitalist spirit. But...

    All across the globe, people see the United States as a land of opportunity and dream of making their way here to work hard and enjoy the prosperity that our system of laws helps provide. Cindy Vong made that dream a reality by emigrating from Vietnam, becoming a U.S. citizen, and starting her own nail salon in Gilbert, Arizona. Thanks to a state occupational-licensing scheme, however, Ms. Vong may no longer be free to pursue her vision of happiness.The Arizona Board of Cosmetology—yes, that’s an actual entity—got wind that Ms. Vong’s spa offered a treatment that uses small fish to...

    When small and medium-sized businesses are dying faster than they’re being born, so is free enterprise,” writes Jim Clifton, Chairman and CEO of Gallup. “And when free enterprise dies, America dies with it.” For six years, the number of small businesses closing has exceeded the number of businesses starting. The number of business deaths exceeded births in 2008 for the first time in US history and has gotten worse in the ensuing years. Since 2010, the rate of small business closures has increased. In the 1980s, the number of new businesses exceeded those closing by more than 100,000 every year....

    “for the first time in 35 years, American business deaths now outnumber business births.” Clifton says for the past six years since 2008, employer business startups have fallen below the business failure rate, spurring what he calls “an underground earthquake” that only stands to worsen as lagging U.S. Census data becomes available. “Let’s get one thing clear: This economy is never truly coming back unless we reverse the birth and death trends of American businesses. ... the numbers paint an ominous portrait of America in a dire state of decline. “I don’t want to sound like a doomsayer, but when...

    Now that the U.S. economy is showing signs of life, President Obama is not wasting a moment to take credit for this recovery. “The steps we took nearly six years ago to rescue our economy and rebuild it on a new foundation helped make 2014 the strongest year for job growth since the 1990’s,” he said in a recent speech. For sure we can expect the president to continue this message in his upcoming State of the Union address, as he works to rebuild his credibility, thinking toward his final two years in office and his place in history. And...

    Left wing groups are ramping up for “street theater” protests at retail stores this Black Friday. If prior years are any indication of the group’s projected success this year, we can expect a handful of union thugs showing up at a handful of Walmart stores, with a few mass-printed signs. As reported by the Free Beacon:“The fight against income inequality in this country starts at Walmart,” said Brooke Anderson of Movement Generation Justice & Ecology Project. “we are proud to stand with Walmart workers this Black Friday to speak out for the fair pay and the respect workers deserve.”Before diving into the...

    With no explanation, Brian Brookman last month lost the bank account for his pawn shop. He had no idea why. Brookman says his store in Grand Haven, Mich., never had been in trouble with federal or state officials. And being in the pawn industry, he was required by law to get a city license every year. “If there was ever a problem, they wouldn’t renew my license,” Brookman, a former police officer and Army veteran, told The Daily Signal. After researching his case on the Internet, Brookman says he concluded that his banker, JP Morgan Chase, closed the account because...

    RENO, Nev. (CBS Las Vegas/AP) — A Nevada rancher said Monday he’s trying to determine if federal agents damaged his cattle when the animals were rounded up then released in a showdown with angry protesters over a decades-long dispute about rangeland rights. U.S. Bureau of Land Management Director Neil Kornze said the agency backed off to avoid a potentially violent situation over the weekend. However, he vowed to go to court to collect more than $1 million in back grazing fees he says Cliven Bundy owes for trespassing on federal lands since the 1990s. Bundy, whose family has operated a...

In his frustration he has posted a list of just some of the ridiculous regulations he has suffered under at the hands of liberals who have been given unlimited power over the lives of everyday Americans. These are some of the regulatory nightmares he had to undergo. In order to merely remove a wooden deck that was condemned by Ventura County inspectors he had to pay for and secure SEVEN separate permits. In order to place a small concession trailer in his...

    You will not see or hear a word about this in the American media. It doesn’t fit their narrative for the way things should be so it will be ignored. The American Enterprise Institute has reported on a startling piece of good news. What the AEI is trumpeting is that the rate of $1.00 a day or less poverty in the world has fallen by 80% since 1970. This has to be causing Lyndon Johnson to roll over in his grave so fast his big rabbit ears are flapping wildly in his coffin. Those who remember Ole Long Ears remember...

    It’s astonishing and a little horrifying that America’s elites know so little about their country’s history. Case in point: Jared Bernstein of the Economic Policy Institute. Jared is an influential left-ish economic polemicist and a sometime adviser to Barack Obama on economic affairs.....On Monday night, I told Larry Kudlow about the story of the first Thanksgiving.I explained that the first Thanksgiving was a celebration of abundance after a period of socialism and starvation. It seems Bernstein never heard about this chapter in U.S. history; he called it an “exercise in revisionist history.” Admitting that he had never read the memoirs...
