As of last night, Senate negotiations to loan money to GM and Chrysler fell apart over the issue of UAW wage and benefit concessions. The UAW’s ability to run roughshod over corporate management is one of, if not the, most important factors that has brought the U.S. auto industry to the...

December 10, 2008 was the “Day Without A Gay” boycott. This foolish boycott was a reaction to California Prop. 8, which enshrined in the California state constitution the traditional definition of marriage. The essence of the boycott, which was modeled on the failed May 1, 2006 “Day Without Immigrants,” was that...

The stimulus plan proposed by Barack Obama focuses on public infrastructure projects, which have a long history of cost overruns, corruption, and construction incompetence.
