Recently I interviewed Peter Greer via skype to talk about philanthropy, and why it often makes things worse. Peter is the President and CEO of Hope International, which is a microfinance organization.
Obamacare is a failure. And now Detroit is looking at using it to help reduce their debt. (This will turn out real well.) Brent Littlefield joined the program to discuss the mentality of the modern Democrat.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term “mailbox money,” allow yourself to be enlightened. Do you remember when you lost your first tooth as a young child?

North Korea staged a large parade to celebrate the 60thanniversary of the Korean War Armistice. Chinese Vice President Li Yuanchao took the salute with Kim Jong Un on the 27th and returned to China on the 28th.

Like a lot of conservatives, I have plenty of doubts about the president’s massive health care overhaul that’s going to change the way Americans get health coverage come Jan. 1, 2014. I think the plan is too big, too expensive, too cumbersome, too reliant on subsidies and imposes too may regulations.

In the meantime, winners are being rewarded immensely.
Those attending the iProperty.com International Property Expo in Singapore, to learn about "the best property in Asia" can win a free house by attending. The location of that house, however, might just be the most laughable "prize" in convention history.
