Leftists betray economic ignorance with tax rate comparisons
I have seen it over and over again and you probably have, too. A claim made by Leftists stating that when the American economy was booming, tax rates were higher than they are today. Were that the end of the story, I’d give up my Laffer Curve-loving Austrian School economics ideology and take up the banner of modern “progressive” socialism. It’s just that I realize | Read More »

It seems the anarchists are organizing. Wait, what? Yes, it seems that the people who supposedly want a “state or society without government or law” are very upset at the racist, homophobic, libertarian, anti-Semite, Alex Jones conspiracy theorist, Ron Paul supporting, fascist, conservative, gun freak, militia men, constitutionalist Tea Partiers. Why? Because these anarchists don’t want to lose their government entitlements. Huh?

No MRIs, but there were doctors
Hullabaloo, a Liberal blog, posted a little gem: ”There were no MRIs in 1780.” Ignoring the fact that the United States had not yet forced Cornwallis’ surrender at Yorktown in 1780 (and hence, no Articles of Confederation, let alone a Constitution, had been ratified), the line of reasoning by the author is sophomoric at best and intellectually dishonest at worst.

Almost Forgotten: The Insurance Mandate Lie
The other day, I was reminded of one of the lies we’ve been fed about the Health Care Takeover the Democrats are desperately trying to pass through the Houses of Congress: The Individual Mandate, which would be just like your mandated automobile insurance. This specious line of reasoning has been almost forgotten amidst the arguments over abortion funding and the Constitutionality of reconciliation and trying | Read More »
