Who Needs Work When We Have Obama?

"Some of us have said all along that the best way to get people who need money --actual cash in hand-- is via a paycheck. You can only do that when you encourage job growth. The best way to encourage job growth is to make it easier to hire people, not harder." It isn't enough to encourage job growth. There also needs to be encouragement to get off of the Government benefits wagon and get a job. The more "free stuff" people can get the less likely they are to want to give any of it up and become self sufficient.

"But first things first. What do you think would be more helpful to people at the bottom of the income ladder: redistribution of income from the rich or getting a good education and acquiring the habits of self-discipline and self-control?" Obviously the latter, but with the Government subsidizing the opposite behavior by redistribution, nothing is going to change.
"... after Thomas Duncan traveled to and from the country of Liberia to attend a funeral (and then knowing he was infected, lied on a medical form before hopping on a flight back), many people are asking why flight bans or restrictions to Ebola stricken countries have not been put in place." Katie, Just what is the evidence that Duncan knew he was infected and thus lied on the medical form, or that he knew that the woman he helped was infected? While your assertion may be true, I have heard nothing that comes close to proving that to be the case.
"The OECD’s Scheme to Raise Tax Burdens on Workers, Consumers, and Investors" Translation: The OECD’s Scheme to Raise Tax Burdens on everyone.
"Did they put the economy on the brink of collapse? Thank God they were there when it was on the brink of collapse because the Republicans in congress simply didn't have the maturity to make painful choices." CAM 25, Better check your history. During the last two years of George W. Bush's Presidency the Democrats controlled both houses of the Congress.
It's all about free stuff provided or mandated by the Government to buy votes for Democrats, but now that folks are seeing the cost of copays, etc. the plan may backfire.

Goodell Has Got to Go

"This episode is a perfect example of corporate mismanagement by the leadership of the NFL. It is inexcusable. The Commissioner of the NFL, Roger Goodell, needs to resign." Should the CEO of any corporation be removed if an employee of that corporation has committed an act such as Ray Rice did?

Is the Islamic State Really Un-Islamic?

Jonah Goldberg should read the Koran before opining on what is or isn't Islamic (or Muslim).

Success or Failure?

"Some people are wondering how someone of obvious intelligence like Barack Obama could be so mistaken about so many things, especially in deadly foreign policy issues." Where is the evidence to support the notion that Barack Obama possesses obvious intelligence? He delivers speeches from a teleprompter very eloquently, but doesn't do nearly so well when unscripted. Who is really the POTUS? Who is pulling the strings?

Cheap Politicians

All the Libertarian Party is currently able to do is guarantee that Democrats will win when they split the non democrat vote. Dream if you want, but the political reality is that the third largest party cannot expect to win elections in sufficient numbers to have any real impact as an independent party.
What if the incident had happened somewhere else where there was no video, and as now his now wife failed to report it. Would Ray Rice have been suspended for even one minute? I think not. That said, I agree that the Rices need help.
