John C. Goodman John C. Goodman: Let’s Privatize Medicare

Paul Ryan proposed a private health insurance alternative to Medicare for future retirees, liberal critics pounced. However, almost one third of seniors are already in private health insurance plans. Seniors choose to be in these plans because they like them better than traditional Medicare.

Humberto Fontova Humberto Fontova: Offshore Oil Exploration Approved for East Coast—Greenies Freak

After decades of paranoid hemming and hawing, last month the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management finally approved oil exploration in Federal waters along the Atlantic coast from Delaware to Florida.

Steve Chapman Steve Chapman: Democracy and Ferguson

Steve Deace Steve Deace: The American Exceptionalism Dictionary

The Left keeps using words like rights, law, and tolerance. I do not think those words mean what they think they mean.

Mark Skousen Mark Skousen: Tim Geithner’s Stress Test: Can the Government Do No Wrong?

Most Austrian economists argue that the best response to the 2008 financial crisis was to do nothing. By refusing to bail out the banks, investment firms and insurance companies, the government would be sending a clear message that Wall Street and the private markets must avoid irresponsible decisions in the future.

Michael Schaus Michael Schaus: Liberals Declare War on Working Poor

Apparently, in a utopian world, restaurants would ban tips and compensate their servers the same way that Chicago teacher unions compensate their rank and file: Without regard to performance, or competency.

John Nantz John Nantz: Ferguson and the Militarization Myth

It is no wonder that when law enforcement utilizes weapons and equipment that appear to be military in nature, the uninformed follow after pied pipers crying, "militarization!"

Charles Payne Charles Payne: Lots of Pain

Thursday, in Chicago, 9 year old Antonio Smith was killed in the backyard of an apartment building. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time, but then again, that statement applies to every black child in Chicago and any other city.

Phil Kerpen Phil Kerpen: Truly Transcending Obamacare

While the dominant Republican slogan on health care remains repeal and replace, there is little agreement on what replace means. But if we wait until Obamacare can be repealed before developing a consensus on positive health care changes, major parts of Obamacare will be even more entrenched and its seductive goal of universal coverage may push us instead toward fully government controlled single-payer system.

Daniel J. Mitchell Daniel J. Mitchell: The Federal Bagpipe Police?!?

Thanks to Mark Steyn, we have a story that exemplifies both the brain-dead nature of the public sector and the nasty nature of our bureaucratic overlords.

Bill Tatro Bill Tatro: A Tale of Two Directions

Over the past five years, while quantitative easing has been the strategy du jour, the mix of so called investment money has been strangely absent one component.

Chris Versace Chris Versace: How You Can Use a Technical Analysis of Earnings to Make Smarter Investments

One of the easiest and simplest metrics that investors use to screen for, as well as value, stocks is the price-to-earnings ratio, better known as a stocks price-to-earnings (P/E). Of course, on its face, a P/E is nothing more than a snapshot in time, but what if I told you it was far more complicated than that?

Jack Kerwick Jack Kerwick: Thoughts on Ferguson, Missouri

Food for thought on the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Brian and Garrett Fahy Brian and Garrett Fahy: The Islamic State of the World

The American people have learned that once again, they were not told the truth. We were told that by the fall of 2012, Al Qaeda was purportedly on the run, finished off by a diplomacy that exchanged bullets for talking points, kinetic warfare for bridge-building conciliation. None of it was true. These talking points masked the reality that the vacuum created by Americas withdrawal was quickly being filled by resurgent Islamists. Now, it seems, modernity is on the run, being terrorized by adherents to a violent ideology buried in the sands of centuries past. The Islamic State (ISIS) is thriving and growing in the newest episode of the perpetual clash of civilizations.

Mike Shedlock Mike Shedlock: Spotlight on European Bank Lending

As noted in German Two-Year Bonds Have Negative Yield, Demand High; Euro Bond Bubble Guaranteed to Burst, " Banks lend (provided they are not capital impaired), when credit-worthy borrowers want credit and banks perceive risks worth lending."

Joanne  Moudy Joanne Moudy: Iowa Gets It Right: Abortions Really do Require a Doctor

Planned Parenthood took a big hit on Tuesday after the District Court for Polk County, Iowa upheld a ban on webcam abortions.

Doug Fabian Doug Fabian: My Best Advice on ETFs

Ransom Notes Radio Ransom Notes Radio: When Keynesians Run the World

The Keynesians are in charge And its starting to show. Mark Skousen joined the program to discuss the possibility of permanently low interest rates. Also: Ezra Klein is still an idiot; but theres someone else out there that is even worse.

Night Watch Night Watch: Hamas is Comfortable with the Death of Innocent Bystanders

The Palestinians are continuing to use up their rockets at the rate of over 100 per day. Meanwhile, much of Gaza is being reduced to rubble. The Hamas leadership seems oddly comfortable with that outcome, provided they can still shoot rockets.

Gayle Trotter Gayle Trotter: As the World Burns: Obama’s “Stupid Stuff” Foreign Policy and its Disastrous Effects

Obamas foreign policy has become noteworthy for a remarkable series of bad decisions, miscalculations, and fecklessness -- tragically ironic for an administration whose foreign policy mantra is dont do stupid stuff.

Ann Coulter Ann Coulter: No Facts, No Peace

It's important to remember that, in police shooting cases like the one in Ferguson, Missouri, the initial facts are often wrong. You don't want to end up looking like Rich Lowry, National Review editor, whose March 23, 2012, column on the Trayvon Martin shooting was titled, "Al Sharpton Is Right."

Michelle Malkin Michelle Malkin: The Jihadi Serial Killer no One's Talking About

For two bloody months, an armed jihadist serial killer ran loose across the country. At least four innocent men died this spring and summer as acts of "vengeance" on behalf of aggrieved Muslims, the self-confessed murderer has now proclaimed. Have you heard about this horror? Probably not.

Mike Adams Mike Adams: Welcome to Public Relations 101

It takes a lot to make me angry. But one thing that will do it every time is the occasional college administrator who hides behind a university spokesperson or public relations firm. Last week, Bryan College made the serious mistake of attempting to contact me through a hired public relations firm. After Bryans public relations people contacted me, I immediately turned the tables on President Livesay and responded with a series of pointed questions.
