GOOD BUYS/BAD BUYS: A very bad buy: The egregious government “enterprise”

Let’s take a trip. Let’s avoid the endless security lines and traffic that inevitably delays flights at many American airports owing to an outdated air traffic control system. Let’s take the government train. Let’s take Amtrak, the government railroad that loses tens of millions of dollars each year and billions since the government takeover of…

Trump’s Triumph or Hillary’s Blunders?: Both are factors in the latest 1948 upset election in America

The republicans and Trump, if they lose, will have certainly missed a great chance to defeat the ethically challenged Hillary Clinton and her plans to expand the already run amuck American welfare/warfare state. Former Reagan administration speechwriter Peggy Noonan recently wrote an excellent column in the Wall Street Journal in which she imagined the positions…

The Donald Moves Closer to Blowing Up the GOP

When Donald Trump loses the presidential election next month—-and at this point that is the most likely outcome—he can look in the mirror to find the biggest reason why he lost and why he pulled down the Grand Old Party, the Republicans, with him. The possibility is now good that a Hillary Clinton landslide could…
