Obama Wrong Again On Israeli Settlements

Obama got over 70% of the Jewish vote in 2008. It will be interesting to see what percentage he will get in 2012. I cringe to think what it will be. He’ll probably still get a majority. If so, it will testify to the stubborn liberalism of American Jews. Given Obama’s hostility and wrong-headed stance…

CBO Says Repeal of Obamacare Will Save $1.4 Tillion

In a letter to House Speaker John Boehner the CBO says repeal of Obamacare will save $1.4 Trillion gross, just over $1 Trillion net.

Manning Up: How the Rise of Women Has Turned Men Into Boys

That’s the provocative title of a new book by Kay Hymowitz of the Manhattan Institute. Publishers Weekly strangely calls the book an “unpersuasive polemic.” I say it is strange for them to call it unpersuasive since anyone who has not been in a coma for 20 years has heard the complaints of women between the…

Three Reasons Obama’s Budget Won’t Win The Future

Glenn Reynolds: Hell, it won’t even win the present. Nick Gillespie doesn’t let the Republicans off the hook. They are resisting their own freshmen members in the House trying to get $100 Billion in budget cuts. Let’s see, the budget is $3.7 Trillion for the next fiscal year. So if you divide $3,700,000,000 into $100,000,000,000…

Recessions End — If Only Politicians Will Allow Them To

The Heritage Foundation has posted F.A. Hayek’s top ten do’s and don’t in a recession. Here’s my attempt to condense them into one sentence: Recessions in a complex free market are normal and constitute a necessary and wonderful self-correcting mechanism to restore equilibrium if, and only if, central planners restrain their urge to interfere with…

Audio Tape Cassettes and Tape Decks About To Go The Way of the Betamax

These may be about to become history. Automobile manufactures don’t offer tape decks as original equipment anymore and few are available in the after market. Anyone born after about 1970 probably can’t even remember a time when AM radio was the only option for music in a car. Being able to listen to whatever you…
