Elizabeth Warren has gained notoriety recently for complaining that the minimum wage would be $22 per hour if it kept up with worker productivity gains over the past several decades. Warren’s analysis was fundamentally flawed because it did not measure increased productivity of minimum wage unskilled workers or justify paying $45,000 per year…

I subscribe to the view that barring something truly unforeseeable, the Democratic nomination in 2016 is Hillary’s for the taking.  There is no second Barack Obama out there to take the nomination away from her. In fact, the non-Hillary Democratic bench is pathetically weak. Hillary’s many controversies are mostly ancient history, and…

First came the smear that the perfectly descriptive and race neutral terms “illegal alien” or “illegal immigrant” were racist, as part of an open-borders effort to redefine the meaning of our immigration laws and those who break them as merely a paperwork problem. Then came the capitulation by the Associated Press. Now comes…

Margaret Thatcher rescued Britain from its economic death. Yet that dying patient now is glorified by the socialists and sympathizers who fought the tough medicine needed to break the death grip. Andrew Sullivan summed it up well in a post I linked on the day of Lady Thatcher’s death: To put it bluntly: The…
