Tax In The Form Of A Billy Club

Taxes have always been something that normal people resented. It’s not simply because the money raised is often wasted by those in power, whether those people happen to be kings, czars or congressmen, but because, as individuals, we resent many of the things our money goes to support. But something else that everyone should resent…

The Truth About Obama’s “Temporary” Ebola Amnesty

When it rains, it pours. Just before unveiling his colossal administrative amnesty for millions of “undocumented” aliens and foreign tech workers on Thursday, President Obama separately ordered up to 8,000 more executive pardons and special work passes for Liberians, Sierra Leoneans and Guineans illegally in this country. Strange, isn’t it? The same administration that refused…

President Obama, Emperor-in-Chief

Let’s say, only for argument’s sake, that President Obama is right about everything he said on immigration. Imagine that he’s right to sign an executive order that would allow millions of immigrants who came here illegally to stay here. Imagine that he’s right to decree that immigrants who snuck into this country should now be…

A Government of Grubers

Jonathan Gruber let it slip. He thinks you're pretty much a moron. And, being a moron, you couldn't possibly understand legislation as complex and important as the Affordable Care Act. Actually, Gruber didn't merely let it slip – he repeatedly called Americans idiots, in the process affirming his own vastly superior intelligence. And he obviously…

“A Gruber By Any Name” and “A Survival Plan For The GOP”

If you’ve been watching Fox recently, you would think Prof. Jonathan Gruber had been given his own show. He’s been on more often than Juan Williams. While normally that would be a good thing, Gruber is no improvement over Obama’s fav Fox commentator. In case you only watch the major networks, you wouldn’t even know that…

A White House Mass Pardon for Identity Thieves

President Obama is poised to show his “compassion” this week by granting work cards to an estimated five million illegal immigrants through an imperial executive order. As for the vast, untold number of law-abiding citizens whose identities have been stolen by foreign law-breakers, two words: Tough luck. Social Security card fraudsters have made out like…

Did Jonathan Gruber Ever Really Exist?

Jonathan Gruber

Who exactly is Jonathan Gruber, that mysterious MIT professor that most of us were first introduced to last week through videos of him gloating over the “stupidity” of American voters for not understanding that they were being conned into supporting Obamacare? He sure seems like an important person. He was, after all, an architect of…

Poverty Causes Crime?

One of the first clues that this Columbia-educated, liberal, Democrat, New York Jew had that there was something wrong at the heart of progressive/left-wing thought was when I read and was taught over and over that “poverty causes crime.” I knew from the first that this was dogma, not truth. How did I know? First,…
