The Difference Between the Lottery and Wall Street

Wall Street Yesterday, I wrote an article about a deceptive shift of language from “income inequality” to “income inequity.” In it, I quoted Barack Obama, who recently claimed that hedge fund investors were the “nation’s lottery winners.” I think his dismissive assessment deserves another look, since it represents the attitude so many Americans have toward the wealthy.So how is the lottery different from Wall Street?First, success at the lottery is a matter of pure chance. Success investing Read more [...]

Bahar Mustafa Claims She Cannot Be Racist Because She's An 'Ethnic Minority Woman.'

racism Merriam-Webster defines "racism" as "a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race."Human nature is a dark animal, and one of the most disturbing qualities of this animal is its need to make itself feel superior. One of the easiest ways to feel superior is to categorize, placing everyone into boxes to be judged based on certain inalterable characteristics, not-so-coincidentally choosing Read more [...]

Ohio Reps Introduce Bills to Ban Gun-Free Zones and Loosen Other Gun Restrictions

gun free zones work These days, we have so many laws on the books, it’s not humanly possible to know them all. For that reason, we don’t need more laws to fix things.

Income Inequality or Income Inequity? The Difference a Word Can Make

income inequity I have been noticing a trend in recent discussions of income inequality. Commentators have started replacing income inequality with income inequity. At first, I thought this subtle shift was a result of ignorance. In our word-impoverished culture, the right words get swapped for incorrect similar-sounding ones all the time (e.g., “disinterested” for “uninterested”).But as this trend toward using income inequity grows, I begin to think the subtle shift in language is intentional. There Read more [...]

MSNBC Wonders How Clintons Can Talk About Income Inequality

clinton-queen MSNBC host and liberal political commentator Alex Wagner had some pretty intriguing and thoughtful questions about the likely Democrat candidate for President. Modern liberals like to spend as much time as possible propagating class warfare and it just doesn't seem like the Clintons will be much good at that considering all of the money they've been bringing in through the Clinton Foundation and former President Bill Clinton's speeches.I don't really understand how Hillary Clinton can be marching Read more [...]

Wage Gap: Hillary Paid Women 72 Cents for Every Dollar Paid to Men

hillary clinton shugs According to a report released by the Washington Free Beacon, back when Hillary was a senator, she paid female senate office workers 72 cents for every dollar paid to male workers.I personally don’t care about that wage gap. And it’s not just because I’m male and think men should be paid more than women. It’s not that at all. The amount of reimbursement a worker gets in exchange for labor is dependent on many factors. Experience, education, skill level are just a few. If a man makes more Read more [...]
