There Ain’t No Such Thing as a Free Education

There’s a liberal meme gong around that list the cost of college in a number of countries. It’s been put together by Occupy Democrats. Occupy Democrats was founded in 2012 as an advocacy group created to counterbalance the Republican tea party, and to “give President Obama and other progressive (liberal)

New Minimum Wage Law Forces Borderlands Books to Close

Lawmakers believe they can create economic opportunity and prosperity by law. If they really believe this, then why not pass a law that says that everybody should get paid $40.00 per hour? If $15.00 is good, the $30.00 should be better. Many companies live on thin profit margins. They are

Minimum Wage Workers March to Eliminate Jobs

Fast food workers across the United States went on strike to protest minimum wage pay. They want their salaries doubled to $15 per hour — twice the federal minimum wage rate. If the $15-wage-rate goes into effect, business will drop off and layoffs will take place. Some of the people

My Response to ‘Native American’ Elizabeth Warren and her ’11 Commandments of Progressivism’

Crazy leftists want Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016. She’s described as a “liberal superstar.” Many are dumping Hillary for Warren. It could be the battle of the sexless in 2016. What were the people of Massachusetts thinking? She’s not only a plague on Massachusetts, but

Liberals Upset that Hobby Lobby Imposes Its Religion on Employees

Don’t you just love it when liberals accuse religious people of imposing their morality on other people? Kind of like the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. did when he called for the Montgomery, Ala., bus boycott and call for the end of segregation laws. Or when religious people in England

My Employer Doesn’t Pay for My Food So I’m Going to Starve

Liberals pride themselves in being more logical, reasonable, and scientific than conservatives, but the Hobby Lobby case has proven that this general picture of liberals is all wrong. They also tell us that they are more compassionate, loving, and interested in the welfare of people less fortunate. Hogwash! Have you

The Minimum Wage Myth Debunked

If you believe what the Democrats and Unionists say about the minimum wage, nearly all Americans are making $7.25 per hour. Nothing could be further from the truth. Fortunately Republicans argue raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour arguing that it “would damage the nation’s fragile economic recovery. Several

Liberals are Excited that Fast Food Joint Will Pay $15.00 an Hour

An article that appeared in the Daily Beast is getting a lot of attention. The co-owners of Moo Cluck Moo have been paying their workers $12.00 per hour. But beginning in October they’re going to raise their pay scale to $15.00. Good for them. It’s their business, their money, their

‘Now Hiring . . . Must Be Mexican’ Burger King Sign

I was suspicious of the ‘Now Hiring Must Be Mexican’ sign at a Burger King that’s been making its way around the internet. Almost anything can be done with Photoshop. Well, it turns out that the sign is real, but it was put up by a disgruntled employee. Here’s the

Minimum Wage ‘Facts’ Democrats Don’t Want Voters to Know

If you listen to Democrats, most Americans are working at jobs for minimum wage pay. It’s not even close to the truth. The Democrats are using the minimum wage debate as a way to garner sympathy for liberal causes and to paint Republicans as Scrooges. Let’s get real. Many adult

Switzerland Pushes for $2800 Monthly Minimum Wage

The people of Switzerland used to have better economic sense. Not anymore. More than 120,000 have signed a petition demanding a $2800 monthly minimum wage. No matter where they work or what kind of work they do, they would be paid $2800. Such a minimum wage demand will raise the

The Minimum Wage is Bad for Employers, Workers, and the Economy

The minimum wage is about freedom. Think about it. The government is forcing employers to pay people a certain amount of money. It’s no wonder that a majority of voters have no problem with the government taking ever higher amounts of money from workers in the form of taxes. When

How Taxes Nearly Destroyed an Industry

Politicians believe that taxes and regulations are simply the cost of doing business. Business owners can either absorb the costs or pass them on to customers. It doesn’t work that way. When the minimum wage goes up, an employer often will lay off a single employee while paying his remaining

How Government Creates Unemployment

Economics isn’t hard, unless you’re a liberal. Republican governor Chris Christie mocked a network graphic insisting that 55 percent of New Jersey residents think he’ll be Vice President and 68 percent don’t. In case you don’t see the problem with these numbers, 68% + 55% = 123%. We’ve heard about

Why Are So Many Conservatives Liberal?

I can’t understand why Americans talk conservative but vote liberal when it comes to government spending, until I read some of the nonsense that passes as thoughtful journalism in our nation’s newspapers. Michael Gartner of USA Today is critical of a capital gains tax cut because, you guessed it, the
