The EPA's Crusade Against the American People

Recently, nationally syndicated radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has come under fire for using some incendiary language to describe a 30-year old female student at Georgetown law school. While Limbaugh has faced rebuke from almost every major personality in the United States, the comments made by syndicated talk show host Robert F. Kennedy Jr. have gone relatively unnoticed.

Is Wind Energy Worth the Green?

Since environmental issues are becoming increasingly salient in the political arena, the subject of alternative energy subsidies warrants some attention. Currently, Congress is deciding whether or not to extend the Production Tax Credit (PTC), a 20-year subsidy which is responsible for most of the growth in the wind sector. The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has exerted considerable political pressure on legislators, both state and federal, in order to garner support for the extension of this subsidy.

Keep Raising the Debt Ceiling and the Whole House Will Collapse

I, however, place economy among the first and most important republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared.—Thomas Jefferson Last week on January 26th Congress voted against a measure to deprive the president of the authority to raise the debt ceiling. In a 44 – 52 vote, the president was granted permission to add another $1.2 trillion to the national debt, deferring for some time any difficult albeit necessary fiscal decisions. For the first time in over half a century, the national debt is roughly equal to the gross domestic product of the United States. This situation is analogous to an individual whose debts are equal to the total value of his income and savings. Mainstream economists will note, however, that this is not as dire of a situation as it first appears to be. After World War II, the national debt was 122 percent of GDP, about 22 percent higher than that of today. This is true, although there are several other factors that are worth consideration in comparing and contrasting the fiscal solvency of the United States in 1946 with that of today.

The Tax That Nobody is Talking About (Except Ron Paul)

If there is one topic that has animated the Republican presidential debates this election cycle, it is the economy. Americans are dissatisfied with the economic policies of the current administration which have failed to alleviate unemployment and stimulate palpable economic growth. Consequently, Republican candidates are proposing alternative solutions to the economic woes the country currently faces. One specific aspect of these solutions concerns tax policy.

Monday Morning Football!

So, what can football teach us about education reform?  I’d argue everything.  In a recent Wall Street Journal article former NFL great Fran Tarkenton asks, “what if the NFL played by teachers’ rules?”  Thinking about this hypothetical situation it would be interesting to ponder such a world.  Tarkenton writes:“Imagine the National Football League in an alternate reality.  Each player’s salary is based on how long he’s been in the league.  It’s about tenure, not talent.”

Wind Energy: A Darker Shade of Green

A Darker Shade of Green Wind energy has become an environmentalist’s catchall. Americans have been led to believe that the big white wind turbines springing up all across the country are a sort of great white hope for the environment and energy security.

The Truth About the Fourteenth Amendment

At the founding of our great nation a resident of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin what type of government the delegates have created?  Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”  However, as August 2nd looms ever near, and negotiations over the debt ceiling seem to be at a standstill, proponents of big g

The Dollar Sailing on the Titanic

Do you trust the government with your money?  Perhaps a better question to ask is do you trust Ben Bernanke and Timmy Geithner with your money?  If you answered yes to any of those questions here is an interesting little fact for you.  Did you know that the value of our currency has decreased by 95% since 1913, which was when the Federal Reserve was created?  There are some who have come to understand that our fiat based currency is hardly worth the paper it was printed on, which is why people have started to buy gold and silver.
