We don’t want to end up like Italy

We don’t want to end up like Italy

Star Parker The Wall Street Journal calls the economic implosion now taking place in Europe “a crisis of the welfare state.” The latest European nation to hit the wall is Italy, where national debt is 120 percent of GDP. That is, for every dollar their national economy produces, they owe $1.20. The Journal calls this a crisis of the welfare state because the Italian national debt is well in excess of the ability of Italians to pay its obligations and is the direct result of excessive government spending. When the Republican presidential candidates were asked in the most recent debate if the United States should help bail out these bankrupt European nations, the consensus response was “no.” This, I believe, is the correct answer for two reasons. First, the way to deal with irresponsible behavior is not to find new ways to finance it but to demand responsible behavior. Second, […]

As if we needed any more reasons to oppose the proposed Ground Zero victory mosque—and mosque building in America, in general—well we have one anyway.

Amazing Discovery: Sun Heats, Cools the Earth

Amazing Discovery: Sun Heats, Cools the Earth

I know this is going to be hard to believe, but scientists are indeed confirming long-held myths and legends that the sun has an incredible influence over heating and warming of our planet. I know, I know, modern science has for many years told us that it is the SUV, light bulbs, power plants, factories and evil capitalism in general that warms our planet–and warms it dangerously. But this new evidence could just turn “science” on its collective (collectivist?) head.
