Cutting Healthcare Costs by Killing Patients

by Deane Waldman U.N. Resolution 260 (III) — Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide — was signed on December 9, 1948.  It memorializes a worldwide consensus against state-sanctioned killing of people by groups.  The convention protects “national, ethnical, racial or religious group[s].”  The Convention forgot to protect a group called the expensives.

One Hundred Reasons to Abandon Public Education Now

by Daren Jonescu In  a recent article,  I noted in passing that “there are a hundred compelling reasons for removing  your children and grandchildren from the public schools, regardless of any  practical or financial inconveniences this may cause you.”  My choice of  the round figure one hundred was purely a rhetorical flourish — there are  actually far more than a hundred reasons to abolis

Bob Woodward threatened by White House over sequester reporting

Thomas Lifson “…you  will regret doing this,” Bob Woodward was told by a senior White House aide. He  told Wolf Blitzer this today in an interview, embedded below. Woodward  also noted that nobody disputed the factual basis of his reporting of authorship  of the Sequester proposal. This  amounts to naked bullying of the press. Woodward is the most respected reporter  in America. The White Ho

Ben Carson: White House Repeatedly Asked for an Advance Copy of My Speech

Madeleine Morgenstern Dr. Ben Carson rebuffed multiple requests from the White House for an advance copy of his speech for the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month, a speech in which he criticized President Barack Obama sitting just a few feet away.

Paul Harvey Wins the Super Bowl

by Rich Lowry In the 4 1/2 hours of ceaseless spectacle that was Super Bowl XLVII — even the Roman numerals are excessive — there were only two minutes that made you stop and truly listen. They were courtesy of Paul Harvey, the late great radio broadcaster. Chrysler had the inspired idea to make two minutes of his speech at a 1978 Future Farmers of America convention into the soundtrack for an ad for the Ram tr

First Comes Honor

by Steve McCann A nation without honor is a nation without a future.  Today the United States finds itself in a quagmire of ever-increasing self-doubt and foreboding.   Chief among the factors that have brought America to this point has been the abandonment of a sense of what is right, just and true as it relates to the duty imposed by conscience.  Honor is being abandoned and replaced by duplicity, avarice, se

Brown vs. Green: Clash of the Titans in California

The stakes of the battle could be huge, reports the New York Times. Hundreds of thousands of high-paying jobs for Californians, versus environmental concerns about fracking, pipelines, and greenhouse gasses. The Monterey Shale formation, stretc

Racist Ageist Sexist Legislation Must Be Stopped

by Babara Samuells Obamacare law is direct discrimination.  We cannot stand by and allow this racist, age discriminating and sex discriminating law in our country. A law that knowingly singles out and harms one race, age and sex much more adversely than others must be labeled for the vile discrimination it is and that law must not be implemented. The most adverse effect of this law will be on three groups…whites

by Sara Noble Martin Luther King Jr Day is celebrated on the third Monday in January although his actual birthday is the 15th of January. He was born in 1929 and would have been 84 years old had his life not been cut short. In a speech delivered one day before his assassination Dr. King said, “Let us keep the issues where they are.

GAO Overview of US Financial Outlook Teetering Between Bleak and Hopeless

by Sara Noble We are on a rapid and unsustainable fiscal path according to the GAO: “GAO’s federal simulations show that absent policy changes, the federal government faces a rapid and unsustainable growth in debt. Simulations of the state and local government sector show that not only the federal government faces fiscal challenges that will have a profound effect on government over the coming decades. A growin
