I used to watch The King of Queens with my wife from time to time. Though it wasn’t one of our favorite sitcoms, it was usually good for some laughs. The star of the show, Kevin James, did a great job of portraying loveable delivery driver Doug Heffernan. Heffernan was a fun character because in…

In Defense of Hillary Clinton

How many of you remember this? In 2000, when Hillary Clinton was campaigning for her first term in the Senate, someone came out with a book suggesting that she might be anti-Semitic, or at least that she made anti-Semitic remarks.

On January 20, 2009 (the day Barack Obama was sworn into office) the country was in pretty rough shape. We were in the depths of the Great Recession. Millions of Americans were losing their jobs, companies were shutting down left and right, the stock market was tanking, 12.5% of Americans were living in poverty, and…

As the Obama administration and the Democratic Party prepare once again to campaign on the “issue” of income inequality (this time for the 2014 midterm elections), the irony of their efforts is impossible to ignore. After all, President Obama has been peddling the class warfare rhetoric since before he ever took office. You would think…
