GM is Alive; At Least Twelve GM Owners Are Not

For me, the most frustrating part of the massive bailout for the failing big businesses of America (like GM and the big banking interests) is not how much money the taxpayers had to shell out (though that was rather frustrating). It’s one simple fact—the bailouts propped up businesses that should have died. The bailouts rewarded mediocrity and punished excellence. I hate my bank—Chase. I used to be a very happy customer of Washington...

Obama Refuses to Extradite Brothers Who Raised Thousands in Campaign Donations

In the 1990s, Roberto Isaias served as the President of Filanbanco in Quito, Ecuador.  His brother William was the Vice President of the bank which was at the center of the financial collapse that rocked the South American country.  Filanbanco was one of 30 banks that collapsed between 1998-99.  The financial disaster ended up costing the Ecuadorian taxpayers over $8 billion.

States with Highest Income Inequality Voted for Obama

Curious fact: in 2012, four years after Obama took office the first time, the states that had the absolute highest rates of income inequality voted for Obama (again).

Bank Manager Fired For Carrying Concealed Handgun To Work

She’s also a mother of three. She understands the value in carrying a concealed handgun for protection. And since banks are obvious targets for robbers, it seems like a common sense thing to do. But as we know from many other businesses, the management don’t bother with common sense polices. We’ve had people at convenience stores get fired for defending themselves from burglars. We’ve also had a lot of defenseless employees dying at...

What They Call Capitalism Isn’t Capitalism At All

When most leftists and liberals decry the current American system, they talk about income inequality, corporate welfare, big business lobbying, and the like. They tend to call these things “the evils of capitalism” or something similar. Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that leftists and liberals are wrong to call these things capitalism. The bad news is that leftists and liberals are right to call these things...

Study: Religious People Less Likely To Commit Crime

You might tell an atheist something to the effect of, “If there is no God, then all things are permissible.” He might retort, “No, if there is a God, then all things are permissible.” Then, he’d go on to cite all the atrocities done in the name of Allah. Or, he’ll pretend to know something about the Crusades. Here’s a UK study that will surely outrage those atheists. They wanted to see if there was a correlation between religion and...
