Macy’s Racy Thanksgiving Day Parade
The most uncomfortable part of my Thanksgiving has, for the last couple of years, been a little trick my father taught me about how to keep the turkey from drying out while cooking. I have to make a slice between the skin and the meat and then stuff tabs of butter under the turkey’s skin. I use an entire stick of butter and place them | Read More »

Update on Internet Sales Taxes
Today, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear Amazon.com/Overstock.com’s challenge to the NY affiliate nexus law, also known as the Amazon tax. On September 19, the American Legislative Exchange Council filed an amicus curiae brief with the Court based on our long-standing policy of supporting the physical presence rule. Ironically, the Court announced its decision on Cyber Monday. This is disappointing because it leaves unsettled | Read More »

The GOP: A Choice, not an Echo
Well, it appears that we are on the same page as the establishment with one important goal. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor told the Richmond Times-Dispatch “America needs a Republican Party.” Amen! We’ve been saying for years that America needs a bold choice, not a faint and pathetic echo. Unfortunately, it seems that Cantor plans to achieve that goal by counterintuitively acting more like the | Read More »
Healthcare.gov Still Barely Works
As we get back up and running from the Thanksgiving Holiday, the deadline for the Obamacare website has come and gone. CNN was able to get it to crash live on national television. But that’s okay. The Obama Administration got the New York Times to run a full page ad . . . errr . . . they actually called it journalism … claiming that | Read More »
Max Motors, a Miserable McDonalds and Misfit Leftist Economics
It’s been a while, but over this Thanksgiving week I was finally able to accompany my family on a short visit with some in-laws in western Missouri. It was a great trip with some wonderful Thanksgiving food and weather. But all good things must come to an end, and on Friday we drove back to the St. Louis area. But shortly after leaving, we made | Read More »

Delayed, Not Dead: Obama’s Labor Department Announces Timing Of New Persuader Regulations
Besides the damage that ObamaCare is doing to the job market, if people believed that the President’s administration would be a “lame duck” in the his second term, they don’t know the Obama Administration.
In fact, without a re-election to worry about, Barack Obama’s second term may, in fact, be worse for companies than the first when it comes to new onerous regulations.

So, it’s December 1, 2013. They get healthcare.gov to work yet? #obamacare
This isn’t an academic question, by the way: there are kids with cancer who would like this administration to stop wrecking their health care. Little Hunter Alford needs chemotherapy to treat the rare and deadly cancer he was born with but has lost his health insurance under an administrative blunder seemingly caused by Obamacare. While the president’s signature policy promised that no one with a | Read More »

@BarackObama’s (and the Democrats’) war on the scourge of piano teacher nonprofit associations.
Background: the Federal Trade Commission got a bug up ah, decided that some boilerplate, non-binding, non-enforceable language in the Music Teachers National Association (a small nonprofit out of Ohio) represented an attempt to jack up prices in the high-stakes, ruthlessly competitive world of piano lessons (average lesson, according to the WSJ: $30). Not having any friends in court – and no, I don’t think that | Read More »
Assessing The Wake of Legislative Hiroshima
WHAT IS THE NUCLEAR OPTION? The nuclear option, which was triggered by Harry Reid last Thursday, is always characterized by the “puppet press,” but never described. And there is good reason for this. The nuclear option is nothing but an exercise in fraud. A majority of senators stand up and vote for a reading of the Senate rules that is absolutely palpably factually untrue — | Read More »
