In Defense of Hillary Clinton

How many of you remember this? In 2000, when Hillary Clinton was campaigning for her first term in the Senate, someone came out with a book suggesting that she might be anti-Semitic, or at least that she made anti-Semitic remarks. At the time it seemed possible that this could deal a death blow to her…

A Booming American Industry

Unemployment remains unacceptably high, millions of Americans have given up looking for work, but at least one USA industry is humming on all cylinders. The grievance industry manufactures a very successful product, the seductive message that the USA is an unfair nation and always has been. The deck is stacked, the grievance sales force says,…

Auntie Zeituni is an enduring symbol of all that is wrong with this country’s immigration “policy” — or rather, its complete lack of a coherent, enforceable system…

The Tax Collector Knocketh

Next week Caesar comes calling, demanding that Americans do some serious rendering in the form of federal income taxes. Speaking of old Julius, back in the glory days of the Roman Empire he decreed that citizens should work two days a year to pay their fair share of taxes. Things are a bit different now,…

Hope and Change. Really?

Let’s start with the premise that all politicians, to one degree or another, are cynical, hypocritical and are not always honest.  But Barack Obama makes even the worst of that crowd look like the virtuous Mother Teresa. When he was running for re-election he did nothing to stop a friendly super PAC from running an…
