Stop Indoctrinating Our Kids About Climate Change!
As nearly every standardized test is showing, our schools are doing an abysmal job teaching kids how to read or do math. In some cases, kids graduating from high school can barely read their diplomas.
But the schools are wildly succeeding with their climate change indoctrination program. When I speak to kids on high school and college campuses ...Read more
What's the Matter With Texas Republicans When It Comes to School Choice Legislation?
This has been the year for school choice all over the country. At least six additional states joined Arizona and Florida to give parents the funds to send their children to private and charter schools.
Surprisingly, deep-red Texas is not among these states -- at least not yet. Currently, there is no school choice in the Lone Star State for low-...Read more
The Green Movement Is a Jobs Killer. Are Unions Finally Figuring This Out?
Could it be that union bosses are finally waking up to the cold reality that the greatest threat to steel workers, the United Auto Workers, miners, machinists and the Teamsters is the radical climate change agenda of the environmentalists?
The green movement has taken the Democratic Party hostage -- and President Joe Biden's all-in ...Read more
Federal Trade Commission's Call of Duty Maneuver Is Actually a Dereliction of It
The British antitrust cops just announced they will oppose the proposed blockbuster $68.7 billion merger of two American companies -- Microsoft and gaming company Activision Blizzard, the owner of the wildly popular game Call of Duty. This decision is bad news for investors in companies, gamers and workers. But it's very good news for America's ...Read more
Who Turned the Lights Out? Joe Biden!
Does the radical climate change agenda know no end? Earlier this year, it was gas stoves -- and then lightbulbs.
Then, a few weeks ago, President Joe Biden's administration announced much less gas cars after 2032. Even though about half of Americans say they don't want an electric car and only 6% of drivers are buying them.
But that was child'...Read more
Regulatory Octopus Is Strangling Our Economy
Every schoolkid knows -- or used to know -- that the United States has three branches of government. At least that's what the textbooks say.
But really, we have four branches of government.
That's because Congress -- the legislative branch -- has for decades delegated lawmaking authority to the unconstitutional fourth branch of the U.S. ...Read more
The Left Has Killed Our Great Cities
Mark down Tuesday, April 4, as the night Chicago died. That's when we learned that Second City voters narrowly elected Brandon Johnson as their next mayor.
This is a city that was flattened during the reign of Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who lost in the first round of voting for Chicago mayor because she didn't finish in one of the top two spots. ...Read more
Hey, Uncle Sam: Stop Paying People for Not Working
A policy question these days that has befuddled federal lawmakers is why so many millions of people have not returned to the workplace in the post-COVID-19 era. The labor force participation rate among employable adults is near a record low today. There are at least 2 million to 4 million employable adults who could and should be working but ...Read more
Honey, Joe Biden Just Shrunk Our Pension
President Joe Biden recently issued his first veto since taking office on Jan. 20, 2021.
Biden rejected a bipartisan bill that would have required investment fund managers to take politics out of their investment decisions and to stay focused on providing the best return to their clients as much as possible.
Why should you care? Because Biden ...Read more
Michigan Is Headed Back to Rust Belt Poverty
Since the early days of Henry Ford, Michigan was the proud symbol of America's industrial might.
But then, starting in the 1970s, things went south -- in part because of the might of the unions that ran the state's political machine. That's when Michigan transitioned into the sad symbol of closed factories: the American "Rust Belt." Flint, ...Read more
Death Taxes Are Immoral. Even Worse, They Don't Work.
"I have no respect for the passion of equality," Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., one of America's great jurists, once declared, "which seems to me merely idealizing envy."
But envy, and its sister vice, greed, are very much back in fashion today when it comes to the progressive Left. Just listen to President Joe Biden, who wants $2 trillion of new ...Read more
