John Kerry's Shameless Flip-Flop on Missile Defense

Secretary of State John Kerry talked tough during his news conference in Seoul on April 12th, with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-Se at his side. He was responding to North Korea's continuing stream of warlike rhetoric and its final preparations for a possible imminent launch of one or more mid-range missiles, which could happen as early as Monday April 15th when North Korea celebrates the birth date of its founder Kim Il-Sung. Ironically, Kerry is now flaunting the missile defense systems he so vigorously fought in his decades serving as U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, when he had used words like "fantasy" and "mythology" to describe them. Indeed, earlier this month in Washington, Kerry shamelessly bragged that "the President made the decision to redeploy missile defense with respect to the United States itself." [more...]

SNL Pushes Obama's Gun Agenda

As the U.S. Senate voted in favor of initiating debate on the implementation of new restrictions on constitutional rights, the "Saturday Night Live" crew was readying its Obama-supporting comedic arsenal. SNL writers came up with an opening skit for this past weekend’s show, which essentially chided Congress for failing to sufficiently negate the Second Amendment. [more...]

College Application Should Encourage Entrepreneurialism, Not Narcissism

In a recent essay Naomi Riley, author of Faculty Lounges, pointed out the absurdity of the essay questions that many high school seniors have to submit as part of their application to colleges and universities. Indeed, Ms. Riley rightly suggests that the ego-centric focus of the questions on the ubiquitous Common Application, a utility that many schools use, is reflective of a well-established culture in high schools, now enforced in colleges, that encourages a view that individual identity is all important. It is no wonder that a recent poll finds that a majority of college students think they are way above average. [more...]

Is Everything Inside D.C. Just For Show?

Is it all to make us believe the two parties are getting along? What's behind the bugging of Sen. McConnell's HQ? Is everything that goes on inside D.C. just a carefully scripted dance to make each party appear to be conciliatory? Are all the recent examples of the "charm offensive" just designed to make people think the two parties are now getting along? And what of the secret bugging of Sen. Mitch McConnell’s campaign office? Is the media using a double standard in this case? [more...]

The Center for Independent Employees

I am writing to you as the owner of a company who has experienced terrible costs, both financial and emotional, of fighting a targeted union campaign. These campaigns are designed for the express purpose of force unionizing employees. The unions that employ these tactics have no concern for the damage they cause. They target the employer, and utilize smear campaigns, and spread lies and deceit. They often include the filing of unsubstantiated complaints and regulatory actions, and directly interfere with the businesses customer relationships. The goal of these campaigns is to cause chaos and disrupt the businesses operations, and ultimately to bring the business to its knees. [more...]
