Watch Neil Cavuto go Head-to-Head with Student Who Wants “Free” College

Neil Cavuto is such a cool guy. Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity should emulate him. He’s a very gracious interviewer, and he’s able to have a discussion with anyone no matter what his or her views are. He doesn’t try to embarrass the person. He can argue without being nasty about it. Cavuto questioned organizer Keely Mullen with the Million Student March movement. So, what is it that a “million” students are marching for? They want college to be “free.” Of course, there’s no such Read more […]

The U.K. Government Tries to Cripple Uber under Pressure from Cab Industry

Speak of the devil and he shall appear. After writing about crony capitalism just yesterday, a story popped up on my Facebook feed about how London is trying to handicap Uber drivers with arbitrary regulations. Uber, for the uninitiated, is a taxicab-like service that has exploded over the last two years. Uber employees are not cab drivers, but “private contractors” who use their own vehicles. The operation is run on an app with which you digitally hail the nearest driver. The app also uses your Read more […]

Your Government at Work – Regulators Complain that Uber Drivers are “TOO” Efficient

No, this is not a story from the satirical website the Onion. Yes, this is really an idea that your elected (and unelected) government officials have developed in an effort to make our lives “better.” No, I don’t think the people who thought this up realize just how stupid their idea is or just how foolish we all think they are. In major cities across America the ride-sharing company known as Uber has been forced to fight against the entrenched taxi lobby and their prostitutes in the local Read more […]

Obama Smog Regulations to Cost 4 Times More than Predicted!

The Environmental Protection Agency estimated its stricter smog limits would only cost Americans $1.4 billion a year, but a new report argues the total cost to the economy is likely 40 times higher than agency estimates. The right-leaning American Action Forum says EPA’s updated smog, or ground-level ozone, rule could cost $56.5 billion in lost wages based on economic losses from counties that couldn’t comply with the agency’s 2008 rule. “Observed nonattainment counties experienced Read more […]

The Federal Reserve Plans to Raise Interest Rates… Maybe

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said Wednesday it’s a “live possibility” the Fed will raise interest rates for the first time since the 2008 financial crisis. While Yellen said “no decision has been made,” she made it clear the option is on the table during a House Financial Services Committee hearing Wednesday, reported Fox Business. The Federal Open Market Committee is scheduled to meet Dec. 15-16 to discuss whether the economy is stable enough to handle higher interest rates. The Read more […]

Government Plans to Force Doctors to Take LGBTQ Sensitivity Training

With the number of gay and transgender people on the upswing in the District of Columbia, city council members want to force doctors to take cultural competency classes to better accommodate them. The council heard testimony Wednesday from local activists urging them to pass legislation that would make “LGBTQ cultural competency training” a part of their continuing education requirements. The new regulations would require any medical professional to take two courses on LGBTQ cultural competency Read more […]

Donald Trump thinks it’s “Wonderful” that the Government Can Take Your Property without Your Consent!

Will this latest revelation finally convince Donald Trump’s supporters that it is time to abandon his candidacy? In an interview with Bret Baier of Fox News, Trump spoke in glowing terms of the completely legal tactic the government uses to steal private property. The process, which is called “eminent domain” allows the government (and private companies who lobby the government) to confiscate privately owned land for the use of the community. Sadly, eminent domain is often misused by corrupt bureaucrats Read more […]

HOA Fines Resident $75 for Flying American Flag

I am so glad I don’t live under a homeowner’s association anymore. I’m glad I don’t have to pay the $195-a-month fees that went toward maintenance of a pool that’s only open a few months out of the year, and a tennis court that’s overgrown with weeds. The fees also (allegedly) went toward repairing exterior damage to the condo units, and neighborhood nazis who went around looking for “unsightly conditions” violations. One time I got a notice saying that I was in violation for not Read more […]

New Study Calls “Homophobia” a Mental Disorder

“Opinion is like a pendulum and obeys the same law. If it goes past the centre of gravity on one side, it must go a like distance on the other; and it is only after a certain time that it finds the true point at which it can remain at rest.” – Arthur Schopenhauer Many years ago, homosexuality—rather, homosexual activity—was illegal in many western societies. The most immediate example that comes to mind is England. In “The Imitation Game,” Benedict Cumberbatch brilliantly portrays one of the Read more […]

Men’s Barbershop Fined $750 for Not Cutting a Woman’s Hair

The men’s barbershop in Washington, Pennsylvania referred the woman elsewhere and even offered to pay for her haircut because of the inconvenience of not being able to serve her. Now, they’re getting slapped with a $750 fine by the Pennsylvania Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs for gender discrimination. The Associated Press reported: [Barbiere] Owner John Interval tells the (Washington) Observer-Reporter the fine “infringes” on his shop’s environment. […] The female Read more […]

Trump on Kim Davis: She Broke the ‘Law of the Land’

Donald Trump said that Kim Davis broke the law of the land in denying same-sex couples marriage licenses. I even heard Erick Erickson say something similar the other day. He said that she should either resign or issue the marriage licenses to the homosexual couples. All because “it’s the law now.” Does this mean that pastors of churches will soon be forced to perform marriage ceremonies between same-sex couples, all because it’s the “law of the land?” All we have is a Supreme Court Read more […]

Judge tells IRS to Stop Protecting Obama Administration!

White House emails to the IRS about individual tax returns cannot be exempted by the embattled agency under the Freedom of Information Act, a federal judge ruled late Friday. United States District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled Section 6103 of the tax code does not justify the IRS from withholding from FOIA requesters by refusing to say whether the records exist. She ordered the IRS to respond properly to an FOIA request submitted by the non-profit watchdog group Cause of Action. “As Read more […]
