The Labor Department reported this week that there are now a record 10.9 million jobs open in America. That's twice the size of the entire Ohio workforce.
Yet the department also has counted some 8 million unemployed Americans. What in the world is going on here? Why aren't the 8 million workers allegedly looking for a job filling any of the 10...Read more
Democrats have made a living in recent times with political attack ads fallaciously accusing Republicans of secret plans to destroy Medicare and Social Security. In one famous TV ad, then-House Speaker Paul Ryan was depicted as shoving an elderly woman in a wheelchair off a cliff.
Well, Republicans may want to reprise that ad -- and toss it ...Read more
President Joe Biden describes his $3.5 trillion spending scheme as a way to improve the economy and "build back better."
The intention is a good one, but at its core, this plan isn't so much about growing people's wealth as it is redistributing it. The goal is to make the economy not more prosperous but more equitable -- fairer.
The ...Read more
The housing market is hot, hot, hot right now, and home prices continue to soar in many markets to their highest prices ever. Since it doesn't cost a real estate agent ten times as much to sell a million dollar home than a $100,000 home, one would expect that the percentage fees for real estate agents would be falling. They aren't. Why?
I ...Read more
Milton Friedman used to quip that, in Washington, if a government program is working, Congress says we need to spend more money on it. And if a government program is failing, Congress concludes we are not spending enough money on it.
We are seeing that in spades with the unemployment insurance program that has been looted by fraud for nearly 18...Read more
Sometimes, when you go into a store with expensive merchandise on the shelves, you will see a sign that reads, "You break it, you buy it."
That's a good slogan for the Republicans as they continue to battle the left's economically catastrophic quest to bankrupt our country by authorizing some $6 trillion of new spending. This is the economic ...Read more
Take a bow, America. It's official and irrefutable: The U.S. is blowing out the rest of the world in tech leadership. No other country in the world comes anywhere close in tech innovation and the dominance of our made-in-America 21st-century companies.
The Nasdaq index of once-small technology companies reached 15,000 last week. Only a few ...Read more
I have never bought the conspiracy theories that COVID-19 was a diabolical political plot to undermine the country. But what is apparent with each passing week is that the virus has been the springboard for the left's agenda to transform America in a way that Sen. Bernie Sanders, Michael Moore or Rachel Maddow could have never imagined.
Despite its liberal tendencies, The Washington Post editorial board once acknowledged that in a democracy, "everyone can't be entitled to everyone else's money."
Well, it may have had that wrong because President Joe Biden is supersizing the entitlement state of America at a pace that makes President Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society ...Read more
The price of oil surged to $75 a barrel the other day under President Joe Biden's green energy policies. The price was as low as $35 a barrel under former President Donald Trump because he believed in American energy dominance ("Drill, baby, drill"). So, more oil meant lower prices at the pump. It was effectively a massive, multibillion-dollar...Read more
I'm no lawyer, that's for sure, and so I don't have expertise on the intricacies of the law, but I am angry as a hornet by the recent Supreme Court decision upholding the federal "eviction moratorium."
On Tuesday, the high court in a divided 5-4 opinion will allow the moratorium to continue until August. This moratorium allows people to stay in...Read more
No one is paying much attention, but Washington is building up a vast new multitrillion-dollar welfare class: corporate America.
Deep inside President Joe Biden's budget are hundreds of billions of dollars of loans, grants and loan guarantees for corporate America. This Aid to Dependent Corporations is most prevalent in the area of renewable ...Read more
President Joe Biden's performance at the meeting with foreign leaders in Britain last week was a disgrace. Biden cut deals with Britain that sold out America's interests, and for doing so, he won the worshipful accolades of the Europeans, the Brits and the Canadians. It's amazing how popular you are at a party when you pay everyone's bills. ...Read more
