CATO Institute

Made a trip yesterday with four students to the CATO Institute for a conference on "The Future of US Economic Growth". Some people said it doesn't look good. Others said people have said that for years, and the future looks bright. All agreed we don't have a clue on being able to reliably forecast it.

One high value statistic was the fact that in 1960 1 in 20 prime aged males between 25-54 were out of the labor force. Today it is 17% and rapidly approaching 1 in 5. If they are not in the labor force, then what are they doing?

Schmuck!

Charles Schumer is a schmuck. The fact that people like him and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have leadership roles in this country makes me want to vomit. Thanks so much you cynical pathetic partisan hack yenta.

Hey! That's me!

R.I.P. union Democrats

The party of Roosevelt and Truman is now the party of public worker unions and the whacko environmental left. 40,000 jobs sitting there for pipe fitters and steel workers and the Democrats in the Senate hold fast to Tom Steyer.

Hey there rough neck....ready to listen to the Republicans?

Regulator-in-Chief

So now the president wants the federal government to regulate the internet. Wonderful. He is going to treat it just like an electric company or the telephone company based on the Federal Communications Act of 1934. Now there is some fresh thinking for you. As the Wall Street Journal points out, this law was written based solely on the Interstate Commerce Act of 1887 where the word "railroads" was stricken and replaced with "telephone companies". Now the FCC will decide what prices can be charged and what is "fair".

The death of a thousand stings magnifies.
