  • Blame Minimum Wage, Not Carl’s Jr. CEO, For Automated Restaurants

    Overregulation: Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s CEO Andy Puzder has people all in a huff over his idea to automate restaurants. But why be upset with Puzder? This is an inevitable consequence of massive minimum wage hikes by the government. “With government driving up the cost of labor, it’s driving down the number of jobs,” said Puzder. “You’re going to see automation not just in airports and grocery stores, but in restaurants.” He’s right. That’s why whenever the minimum wage rises above the market-set prevailing wage, jobs are destroyed. Who would pay someone $15 an hour to do a job that’s...
  • As Iowa looms, GOP wonders: Does Trump have fans, or voters?

    WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - It's the No. 1 question headed into the primary season: Does Donald Trump merely have fans, or does the national front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination have voters who will mobilize come caucus day? The definitive answer won't arrive until first-to-vote Iowa heads to the polls on Feb. 1, but interviews with dozens of voters, political operatives, party leaders and campaign volunteers in the past week paint a mixed picture of Trump's efforts to make sure they do. Even some of the billionaire real-estate mogul's most ardent backers wonder whether the political novice has...

    Among the country's better pundits, it's an annual tradition to break out the figurative cat-'o'-nine-tails and indulge in a little ceremonial self-flagellation. For readers, there's sometimes little more satisfying than watching prognosticators and opinion-mongers publicly confess their sins of analysis. So this year, some of the braver ones have copped to underestimating Donald Trump - not just as a media magnet, but as a bona fide political force in the race for the Republican nomination. You won't be getting that from me. And Ted Cruz is the reason why. We'll get to why in a moment. First, as a separate...

    In ways that immediately brought to mind dangerous parallels with the yellow Star of David patch worn by Jews during the Third Reich, Donald Trump in November suggested that Syrian refugees, posing as allegedly dangerous Fifth Columnists, should wear badges on account of their Muslim faith so that they could not infiltrate American society and carry out plots against the nation. When asked by a reporter whether he thought the comparison with Nazi Germany was a fair one, Trump responded "you tell me." So shocking have been these and similar statements that not just liberal voices and outlets, but even...

    Rush Limbaugh said today on his radio show that Donald Trump’s attack on Ted Cruz over the weekend, calling him a ‘maniac’ given the way he’s dealt with McConnell and others in the Senate, is not an attack a genuine conservative would make and it has raised a red flag for him: While I would certainly vote for Trump if he were the nominee, I’ve never thought he was a genuine conservative. But I do think he’s tried in some ways to bridge his positions with conservatism and I think he generally leans in that direction. At the end of...

    January 31, 2014 Milton, Vermont and Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Three years ago in January 2011, I produced my first Earthfiles news reports about mysterious, unexplained booms occasionally being reported in various parts of North America. Then a year later on January 18-19, 2012 , in addition to persistent, mysterious booms came reports of mysterious horn or trumpet sounds. I did my first interviews with American earwitnesses of highly strange trumpet sounds in Gallatin, Tennessee. The first was a retired real estate agent northeast of Nashville, who described for me the eerie chorus of trumpets that suddenly filled the air...

    As many of you already know, we are entering into the fall High Holy Days, comprised of the Feasts of Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles. Just as the spring Feastdays celebrate the First Coming of Messiah Yeshua, and Shavuot (Pentecost) celebrates the giving of the Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) to the Ekklesia in between the visitations of Yeshua, the Fall Feastdays look forward to His Second Coming—and in particular, the Feast of Trumpets looks forward to His Glorious Appearance in the clouds of heaven!The day which this year falls on September 23 (beginning at sundown the previous night) is known...

    The California National Guard on Wednesday trumpeted efforts to help curb illegal immigration on the Mexican border as its troops neared the end of training. Dozens of reporters and photographers watched bulldozers smooth a patch of dirt in a rugged area to make room for trucks, concrete and other materials to be used for building fences and improving roads and drainage controls. At a perch known as "Arnie's Point," troops demonstrated a Border Patrol infrared camera that Guardsmen will use to spot illegal border crossers up to five miles away. About 900 volunteer Guard troops have reported for duty along...

    WASHINGTON - President Bush was celebrating "a good week for the cause of freedom," with the killing of terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and the completion of Baghdad's government, as he huddled with advisers. "We will determine how to best deploy America's resources in Iraq and achieve our shared goal of an Iraq that can govern itself, sustain itself and defend itself," Bush said Saturday in his weekly radio address. "There's still difficult work ahead in Iraq. Yet this week, the ideology of terror has suffered a severe blow." The president was spending the weekend at Camp David, Md., preparing for...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 9, 2005 - At age 99, Leonard "Rosie" Ross attends his share of funerals. But in most cases, it's not for a friend or loved one. Ross, in his American Legion uniform, trumpets "Taps" for fellow veterans he's never met, representing a nonprofit group called Bugles Across America. Ross is the oldest of thousands of horn players nationwide who believe a recorded rendition of "Taps" playing from a "boombox" just doesn't deliver the proper gravesite tribute to veterans who sacrificed for their country. So they volunteer their time, toting their trumpets, cornets, flugelhorns and bugles to gravesites across...

    The Biblical Feast of Trumpets: Foretelling 'the Day of the Lord' Does this ancient biblical feast hold great meaning for Christians today? by Gary Petty Every autumn the Jewish community observes a holiday called Rosh Hashanah (meaning "head of the year," because it begins the Jewish civil year). This is a biblical festival, known in Scripture as Yom Teruah, the Day of Trumpets, because the Israelites were to blow trumpets on that day (Leviticus 23:24). A shofar, or ram's horn, is blown calling the faithful to 10 days of repentance culminating in another biblical festival, Yom Kippur or the Day...

    BEIJING (Reuters) - China's ruling Communist Party turned 84 on Friday, trumpeting an increase in young new members and calling itself the world's largest political party in terms of membership. The party, which has monopolized politics in the world's most populous nation since 1949, added 2.4 million new members to its ranks last year, bringing its total numbers up to 69.6 million, the online edition of Xinhua news agency said. "The political party with the most members in the world, the Chinese Communist Party, welcomes its 84th birthday on July 1," Xinhua said. Higher education students were one source of...
