Perhaps the most we’ve ever collectively thought of the nation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)’s Air Traffic Control (ATC) – was in 1981, when newly minted President Ronald Reagan had to deal with an ATC union strike. The ATC was demanding seventeen times more than the amount of money and benefits – than was in the deal to which they had just agreed. (A deal that | Read More »
For decades now, all of America’s major institutions – have been broadly, unquestionably Leftist, and rigidly opposed to any deviance from the entrenched doctrine. Colleges and universities, Hollywood and entertainment, the Sciences and the News Media – all deeply in Leftism’s thrall. And then there is the Silicon Valley – now the biggest, baddest, broadest institution of them all. Because of their dominance of the | Read More »

Remember the overtime-session, hanging chad, 2000 George W. Bush v Al Gore presidential election? Where it all came down to Florida – and Gore unsuccessfully sued to overturn the Sunshine State’s certification of Bush as its winner? I remember. I was working on the Bush side of the ledger – in Austin, Texas. Part of the decade I spent living in the Live Music Capital | Read More »

How we power our nation should be, like everything else, as free market as possible. May the most effective, cheapest energy sources win. No government intervention or imposition. That means no subsidies or regulations playing favorites – picking losers at the expense of winners and warping and distorting how we choose. Because market forces lead us to make the best choices. And mean that what | Read More »

“WKRP in Cincinnati” is a fantastic legacy television show – about a 1970s rock-and-roll radio station. And perhaps its most famous episode – is “Turkeys Away.” (God bless the Internet – here is a thirty-second clipped summary thereof.) WKRP general manager Arthur Carlson decides as a Thanksgiving promotion to drop live turkeys from a helicopter on a strip mall. Because he is somehow unaware that | Read More »
Donald Trump remains largely misunderstood – and dare I say it, underestimated – in many areas that matter on the national and world stages. For someone allegedly having no real plan and being so allegedly incompetent – he is certainly, rapidly accomplishing a great deal of exactly the plan on which he ran for president. Trump ran on deregulation. He has as President signed thirteen | Read More »

President Donald Trump and the Republican Congress have both put forward tax reform plans that contain lots and lots of really great ideas. They both simplify the code, eliminate some taxes, reduce the rates of others – and in general are geared to allow for vigor to return to our long vigor-less economy. The fundamental element behind vigor in our economy – is coin. The | Read More »

President Donald Trump is President Donald Trump in no small part because he campaigned acknowledging the elephant that left the room – that being the millions of jobs that have emigrated from the United States over the last several decades.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo appears to loathe actual energy. You know, oil, gas, coal, etc. The sources of energy that actually produce energy – cheaply and efficiently. And instead has an incredible affinity for fake energy. You know – wind, solar, ethanol, etc. The alleged “green energy” – which is neither green nor energy. Alleged energy sources that are in many instances actually worse | Read More »

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has led a years-long Don Quixote-esque political persecution of ExxonMobil. An ongoing, rolling abuse of his power as the Empire State’s chief lawyer – and a gross dereliction of that office’s actual duties. Schneiderman is engaged in all of this ideological obnoxiousness – because he believes in the myth that is global warming…oops, I mean climate change. Or, more | Read More »
