State of the union
President Obama made a non-union, diesel power-train plant in right-to-work North Carolina the first stop in his post-State of the Union tour touting American manufacturing. Not surprisingly, the White House made no mention of these inconvenient facts. Indeed, the Canadian-owned Linamar facility outside of Asheville contradicts the entire industrial policy that Obama has made the … Continue Reading →
Is it really wrong that a person who works full-time at minimum wage earns almost $15,000 per year? The president might think so for his own personal reasons, but is it wrong from some well-founded philosophical sense?
A pity President Obama’s Sate of the Union address was on the economy – because he has compelling things to say on other matters like immigration and family. ”He doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” a friend and manager of a Detroit grocery said to me after a profoundly anti-business speech.

True to his activist roots, this is a president passionate about … Continue Reading →
The election of a man that has a white mother and an African father to the presidency of the United States has made the hardhearted more hateful. The hatred seen now is so direct and open that robes and letters aren’t necessary. The opposition to the president and attorney general of the United States over the … Continue Reading →
Governor Mitch Daniels’ stirring, pro-growth, small government rebuttal to President Obama’s class warfare, Big Government State of the Union speech surely left GOP primary voters praying that Daniels will reverse his decision not to run for president. But the Indiana governor is also a reminder of what is possible when voters choose leadership. Daniels’ gubernatorial … Continue Reading →
