James Lockhart was surviving on $874 a month in Social Security disability payments plus $10 in food stamps when his student loans from nearly 20 years earlier caught up with him. He was told his Social Security checks would be cut by 15 percent, an offset to pay more than $80,000 in delinquent student loans. [...]
I’m sure she was the most qualified person for the position.
Good satire: The anti-crown molding people are at it again. An arrest was made today in the tragic death of the wife of famed attorney, Daniel Horowitz. A sixteen-year-old boy was arrested, and it was disclosed that the boy used crown molding to beat Horowitz’s wife to death. Anti-gun groups and Democrat politicians immediately pointed [...]
Where do these yahoos come up with such jabber? Surely a PETA “special investigation” turned up all kinds of evidence that Iams is a company hell-bent on torturing dogs? I’d love to see firm evidence that it’s truth and not more hysteria.

My latest is up at lewRockwell.com. It’s based on a piece running on ReasonOnline called Rethinking the Social Responsibility of Business: A Reason debate featuring Milton Friedman, Whole Foods’ John Mackey, and Cypress Semiconductor’s T.J. Rodgers. Open any modern business textbook and you’ll note the use of “stakeholder,” not “stockholder.” This concept is a major [...]
Where would you rather live? FEMAville or Marthaville?
From the WWI propaganda archives comes this treasure. And of course, there’s always the propaganda treasures that show the most pubescent of our youth demonstrating their obedience to the almighty state. The Nazis liked that so much that they borrowed the theme. Move on to the present age, and the resurrection of the omnipotent leader [...]
