‘Fempocalypse’

Exactly how I never before noticed the blog “Owning Your Sh*t,” I’m not sure. This lady has got it nailed cold: Okay, someone commenting on my last video scoffed at my assertion that unless our attitudes change, society will, sooner or later, reach a…well, let’s call it a “fempocalypse.” That is, that feminism will eventually […]

‘Recovery’ in the Obama Age

Democrats discovered they can reduce the official unemployment rate by driving people out of the work force altogether: The number of Americans 16 years and older who did not participate in the labor force–meaning they neither had a job nor actively sought one in the last four weeks–rose from 92,898,000 in February to 93,175,000 in […]

Study: Lesbians in U.S. Earn 20% More Than Heterosexual Women

CNN has been giving hourly updates to hype claims that a religious freedom law in Indiana could unleash hateful discrimination against gay people. This appears to be a media-driven hysteria. Nineteen other states have laws similar to Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which is modeled after a federal law Bill Clinton signed. Yet the question […]

‘Peak Hipster’ in San Francisco

“Affordable housing” is one of those phrases, like “social justice” and “sexual equality,” that sounds like a good thing, until you realize it’s a license for totalitarianism.

And this verdict is a teachable moment. The modern concept of employee “rights” is antithetical to economic liberty. Employment in a free-market system is always a […]

European Economic Crisis?

There is a lot of very important news out there today, but perhaps nothing is really more important than this: The completely unexpected decision of the Swiss National Bank (SNB) to remove the 1.20 floor on the Swiss franc against the euro [last week] was one of the biggest currency shocks since the collapse of the […]

It’s a Man’s (Virtual) World, Baby

Before starting this discussion, permit me to point out that no entrepreneur in conservative online media has been more successful than Michelle Malkin, who launched two digital start-ups — HotAir.com and Twitchy.com — and subsequently sold these Internet properties to Salem Communications for sums rumored to be seven figures each. The knowledge that this woman’s phenomenal […]

They Found Peggy Joseph!

Everybody remembers the Florida woman who, during the 2008 campaign, gleefully declared in a TV news interview after an Obama campaign rally that if Obama was elected, she wouldn’t have to worry about putting gas in her car or paying her mortgage. Over the years, whenever the headlines told of bad economic news I’d wonder […]
