#DontDoubleMyGovernment

The solution to unemployment, college expenses, the debt and the deficit is not found in another government program. It is found in less government programs. It is not found in another hand-out from the government. It is found in the American people. It is found in the American character — resilience, hope, determination, perseverance.

The beauty of the American Dream is that it’s whatever you make it out to be. If you want to be a graphical designer, you have the freedom to do so.

E-Race Life

All the hubbub surrounding the “victory” of IBM’s computer named “Watson” on Jeopardy! has sparked some of the strangest discussions in public debate.  It’s all so reminiscent of those Sci-Fi movies and TV shows.

Tax time is coming around and people are getting downright grumpy, it seems like the government reverses the spirit of Christmas… Sort of… It’s easy to watch protests, dictators […]

Rulers Without Measure

The likelihood of Elena Kagan’s approval by the Senate is high, not because she’s qualified, but because she knows the right people, talks the right way and has the right mannerisms. While the people in Washington are often — and correctly — called “the ruling minority,” Angelo M. Codevilla with the American Spectator‘s latest issue […]
