Government Bank Regulators Make More than Twice as Much as Bankers

Another big surprise: recent statistics indicate that bankers make less than half as much annually as the government officials employed to keep those same bankers accountable. Sure, you hear all the time about “bankers’ hours” and “bankers’ pay.” It’s an easy thing to rile up people’s envy by talking about how banker barons and oil tycoons are gouging the life out of the economy for their own profits. How top-level executives and...

Why Job Growth Numbers Under Socialist Presidents Don’t Make Sense

Do you know who has the absolute best numbers in job growth of any American president? FDR. Jobs grew by a whopping 4.97 percent in his first term (not a war term, by the way—those are peace time numbers). That’s right—it was FDR, the greatest socialist president in American history, just barely ahead of Barack Obama—who was able to grow jobs at rates beyond any other president. And yet people were absolutely miserable. Kind of feels...

Obama and The Myth of The Wage Gap

“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.” – Marcus Aurelius Politics is a game of perspectives. You can have all the facts and all the analysis on your side, but if the opposition puts just the right spin on the situation, you’re screwed. If we were a nation who took time to observe the facts, and seek the truth, conservatism would be just fine. However,...

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...

That Time The Media Lied About Matt Drudge, And Pretty Much Got Away With it

“In skating over thin ice our safety is in our speed.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson Lying is a radical practice, in that it takes extraordinary arrogance to walk on such a narrow surface, and expect not to fall. I hate to use the word “bravery,” as it invokes a positive action, but it does take a certain bravery to lie as well as Democrats do. More than any time in our country’s history, our government,...

Increased Minimum Wage to Cause Layoffs and Higher Prices for Goods

Over the past couple of months, a number of articles have been written about the dangers of raising the minimum wage as high as the Democrats are pushing for.  It seems that the Democrats are planning on using the minimum wage, immigration reform and income inequality as their campaign platforms in this year’s midterm elections. If a recent report is accurate, I recommend that Republicans also use minimum wage as part of their...
