Obama's Sneaky, Deadly, Costly Car Tax

The only vehicle that gets 55 miles per gallon, that is not also battery operated, has less than 4 wheels, and can only carry two people. That is not family friendly. In addition, they have not considered the energy cost of electricity production for the vehicles that are battery operated. This kind of wishful thinking is getting close to fantasy land, because you cannot get more work out of a vehicle than the amount of energy you put into it times its energy efficiency. Our energy crisis is all manufactured by governmental policies designed to make the United States the biggest 3rd world country on Earth. Those policies need be replaced by policies making the United States the biggest producer of energy from feasible sources available.

Ban Ki-moon Over Tehran

The time has passed where The United States should be using its considerable economic advantages to leverage a lot more reasonable conduct out of the United Nations, and its member states. We should also leverage our foreign aid a lot more stringently to change the conduct of the countries receiving such aid. Our aid to countries should not be money, which is too easily used to line tin pot dictators pockets, but direct help given individually to the people in their communities through International Non-Governmental Agencies and definitely NOT UN agencies.

Yes! However, keeping them in NYC has many intelligence advantages.
Way to go Col. West! Keep them on edge so they let their constitutes know that they are far from representing them.
Yep, Ann's got it right! Our naturalized citizens know tons more about our governance than our high school graduates. I vaguely remember a study where the US History Test for naturalized citizens is so hard that most high school graduates could not pass it.

Too Much College

The going rate is $50/hour for academic instruction. I charge more than that and have a waiting list from which I get to pick and choose students. I will not waste my time or parents money on students who do not study or do not try.

Too Much College

As always, Dr. Williams is right on target describing both the problem and the solution in his concluding paragraph. I taught remedial mathematics at the college level. At most only a few real adults were able to master the dumbed down material, and they were there just to review math before reentering college. All but maybe one or two students under age 26 were failing the course, many for the second and third time. He is exactly correct in saying that students that cannot pass entrance exams should not be allowed to enter college. They should go back to high school to make up their deficiencies. We might even get better high schools that way.

Let's Give the Fed Some Competition

The FED is not what it should be. The FED does many things poorly. Let's start with the FED by doing fully open GAO annual audits published on the web annually, as if the GAO is the FED's IG. The bright light of public awareness should change questionable decision making to the cautious side as it will be scrutinized by the voters.
Hey! Obama! Look at Illinois's "Amazon" tax. For the year after it took effect tax receipts in that category went down about 33%. I imagine there are other unintended negative consequences too. Now to congress: Get real! Everyone making $10^6 or more shelters their income and the "Buffett" tax will probably have all the same unintended negative consequences for tax receipts that the Amazon tax did for Ill. Of course I don't need to tell you about that, because you are all millionaires at the very least !
