No, @barackobama will not fire anybody over #obamacare. Or anything else.
I understand Ed Morrissey’s point, here… A competent executive would have made examples of a few people long ago as a message to the rest to improve their work. The problem is that we don’t have competent executives in this administration, starting at the top. Obama won legislative achievements in his first term without any operational success, which went unnoticed because either the metrics for | Read More »
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 »
It’s a Bird… It’s a Plane… No, It’s a Drone!
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss Amazon’s plan to have delivery by drone, the future of a sky filled with UAVs and retail sales from Black Friday.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 »
Underwater: Horribly Underfunded, The PBGC May Not Have Funds To Cover Failed Union Pensions
With so many unions’ multi-employer pension funds in critical status, there is an increasing likelihood that union members expecting a pension may not actually receive one.
In fact, retired union workers are already facing ‘unprecedented’ pension cuts.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.Read More »
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 »
