Though the war in which we are engaged is cultural, not civil, it tests whether this “nation: conceived in liberty . . . can long endure.” — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, American Enterprise Institute speech, Feb 16, 2001

Unions are Communist Tools

Bob Ellis

I love it when Leftists are honest (it's so rare, it makes a very special treat). This video from an Occupy DC meeting recently shows former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 president Mike Golash admitting that the goal of today's unions are to promote communism and overturn our free market system.

Don’t raise the minimum wage

Star Parker

The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously observed that "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts." It's an admonition not taken particularly seriously by today's political left. It embraces, extols and advocates ideas and policies based on what it wishes were true, regardless of how often and how consistently the ideas have been proven wrong. Take, for instance, the minimum wage.

Signs ObamaCare May Quash Self-Insurance for Small Businesses

Guest Author

Imagine that, in order to increase competition among grocery stores, the government created local farmers’ markets all across the country. Anyone could sell food within these farmers’ markets — including the grocery stores. But when the grocery stores refused to participate, the government enacted regulations to force them to do so. Thus, what was meant to encourage competition instead became the means of suppressing it.

The House action was led by Representative Jeff Duncan (R-SC) in response to the NLRB’s litigation against the states of South Dakota and Arizona, two of four states where voters overwhelmingly approved state constitutional amendments protecting workers rights to secret ballot union elections.

Best Marketing for a Small Business

David John Marotta

For a small business, marketing and advertising seeks an answer to the question "How will prospective customers find me?" People today no longer reply to direct mail. They don't peruse the phone book. They use television, newspaper, magazines and other traditional media much less. In fact, they don't even ask their friends in person. They use Google or they ask their online social contacts. As a result, most small businesses would benefit from enhancing their website presence by blogging and social media connections.

GOP Leadership: Afraid of Its Own Shadow

Bob Ellis

Erick Erickson at RedState points out some interesting truths about the political situation in 2014, especially when compared to that of 1998. Some (including Byron York) are wringing their hands that (gasp) the GOP might actually make the 2014 midterm election a referendum on President Obama. And of course, since Barack Obama has done so many things worthy of impeachment, the spectre of impeaching President Obama comes up in the conversation also.

What Makes You an American?

Michael Peroutka

Are you an American? If you are, can I ask you a question? In your way of thinking, what makes you an American? Is it where you were born? Is it because of where you presently live? Does a SSN make you an American? Or a passport or driver’s License?

The Bread of Life

David Whitney

The crisis on the border has just begun its planned devastation on our republic. It turns out there is an obscure Obama administration policy that’s deliberately driving this flood of illegal unaccompanied minors. “This policy [and executive order] issued in August of 2013… is called the ‘Family Interest Directive,’ and it essentially forbids Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from deporting, arresting or even detaining any illegal immigrant who is the caretaker of a child.

In a stunning blow to religious freedom, Colorado baker Jack Phillips has been sentenced to be "reeducated" along with his staff by a pro-homosexual court. Phillips' crime: he refused to make a cake celebrating counterfeit marriage.

Truth On Our Side?

Guest Author

One of the primary critiques of religion popular among New Atheists and secularists generally is that it is arrogant and close-minded for any group to claim a monopoly on Truth. The idea that a divine creator had a plan and ordered things a certain way, that he (or she, or it) revealed the Truth to an elect group and that all mankind will be judged by how closely they aligned their lives with the Truth... nothing could be more offensive to the secular progressive worldview. On the contrary, secular progressives claim the mantle of open-mindedness and tolerance.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
