As if Instapundit’s weird enthusiasm for “robosexuality” weren’t disturbing enough, now there’s this prediction from two MIT geeks: Technological progress is going to leave behind some people, perhaps even a lot of people, as it races ahead. . . . [T]here’s never been a better time to be a worker with special skills or the […]
Before we talk about @DavidCookTFP — a liberal columnist for the Chattanooga Times Free Press — let’s talk about Detroit, the city driven into bankruptcy by Democrats and organized labor. If there is one sentence which should be indelibly etched in your mind about President Obama’s bailout of General Motors, it is this: “GM was […]
Remember the infamous business plan from the South Park episode? Collect Underpants ? Profit Say hello to the president’s economic theory: Here's how to improve our economy and create hundreds of thousands of jobs: #RaiseTheWage. http://t.co/NLM2t9NyhS pic.twitter.com/UDTcTSaqZJ — Barack Obama (@BarackObama) December 4, 2013 It would be an insult to readers to explain why this […]
Decades of control by labor unions and Democrats: The struggling metropolis of Detroit, overwhelmed by debt and groping for a path forward, on Tuesday became the largest American city ever to qualify for bankruptcy protection.

The important background facts you should know about Ed Schultz: He was a sportscaster until he was 38 and began his talk-radio career attempting to be a conservative Rush Limbaugh imitator, failed at that and then re-invented himself as a “progressive” host, which provided the platform by which Ed got an MSNBC show in 2009.

The road to Hell is paved by liberal Democrats: An upstate New York grocery chain that had been praised for offering health insurance to its part-time employees will eliminate those benefits as a result of the federal health-care law passed in 2010. “Several Wegmans employees confirmed part-time health benefits had been cut and said the […]« go back — keep looking »
