  • Obama and the Red Crayon

    Lines don’t mean anything to President Obama. Domestically, he has no trouble stepping outside the lines of the law—even laws he championed—to suit his agenda. When it comes to foreign policy, he has a red crayon he likes to pull out from time to time—but it’s the washable kind. No … More

    Let Junk Food Be Advertised at Schools

    Today, First Lady Michelle Obama announced it was time to ban advertising of what she deems unhealthy snacks in public schools.

    How the Chamber of Commerce Boosts Big Business, Not All Americans

    Responding to President Obama’s most recent State of the Union address, Tom Donohue, the president of the Chamber of Commerce stated, “We can’t afford to double down on the failed policies of tax, spend, regulate, and mandate.” Really?

    Gender Equality Isn’t a Myth. But the Wage Gap Is.

    “I think I should be paid more.” I made that statement when I was 26 years old to the male president of one of the most politically conservative groups in Washington. I’m far from the only woman who has realized she deserves a higher salary.  “Paycheck fairness” is a key … More

    Want Spending Reduced? Support Cutting Your Favorite Government Program

    It’s time for citizens to hold elected officials accountable about spending – even if that means their favorite government-funded program gets axed. There’s no hint that Washington is starting to take our outrageous spending levels seriously. On the contrary, on Capitol Hill this week, lawmakers are preparing to vote in … More
