Last quarter, when we showed what was “The Reason For The “Surge” In Q3 GDP”, some were shocked to learn that in the quarter in which US GDP posted a 5% surge, it was none other than Obamacare – a mandatory tax according to the Supreme […]

Some folks were propagandizing… Life’s #BetterWithObamacare… because what else would you do with your low gas price savings…

I have repeatedly warned, going back to before Obamacare was passed, that “electronic” medical records are dangerous. They’re dangerous not only to your wallet, because they give all sorts of commercial interests access to data that is none of their damn business but can be (and will […]

The “pen and phone” president, who has consistently relied upon a complicit media and arbitrary power to achieve his agenda, will not be content with using executive actions and executive orders alone.
He has already been willing to go beyond the bounds of the Constitution. […]

As most of you know by now, I am bearish on gold from an intermediate term perspective on account of the fact that I do believe that the Fed is eventually going to have to raise rates and try to somehow normalize monetary policy/interest rates. Perhaps […]

It’s true – Angela Borths’ daughter is short. So is she – just under 5 feet tall. In fact, being short runs in the family. But that didn’t stop her pediatrician from allegedly reporting her to Child Protection […]

Who is this jackass?
If the administration loses in King, it can announce that it is complying with the Supreme Court’s judgment — but only with respect to the four plaintiffs who brought the suit.
What the writer is talking about is the possibility that Obama may […]

The US government has a day for pretty much everything. Yesterday, for example, was “Freedom of Information Day“. We celebrated it, at our house, by laughing.
Freedom of Information Day falls on March 16th in tribute to James Madison’s birthday in 1751. Madison was known as […]

“It’s hell on stilts on a Segway teetering over the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.”
[Trying to imagine how that would look.]
Political blogger Michelle Malkin painted that mental picture in her recentNational Review article. It was to depict the “Obamacare 10-95 abyss.”

Consumer spending in the U.S. accounts for approximately 70 percent of gross domestic product, though it is important to note that the manner in which “official” GDP is calculated is highly inaccurate. For example, all government money used within the Medicare coverage system to pay […]

Today, for the second time after 2012, the fate of Obamacare lies in the hands of the Supreme Court, and like last time, it will likely be all about Justice John Roberts ‘ decision. Later today, the US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the […]

Now that April 15th is on the horizon, many taxpayers are bracing themselves for the inevitable penalty that will hit them if they don’t sign up for Obamacare. It’s estimated that at least 3 million households may have to pony up 1% of their income, or […]

Cry me a river, so-called “Conservatives”…..
This spring will mark the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta, the landmark agreement by King John of England at Runnymede ceding certain rights to rebel barons. Liberty will have another chance to shine on Wednesday when the […]

There was much hope that when Q3 GDP soared to 5%, primarily on the back of Obamacare spending recalendarization and a massive consumption/personal saving data revision, that the US economy would finally enter lift-off mode. Those hopes were reduced by about 60% when moments ago the […]

When the system is set up to encourage maximizing self-interest, accountability for the whole is lost.
The lessons drawn from the U.S. healthcare system’s failures can be fruitfully applied to a variety of large-scale problems around the world. Let’s start with an insightful look at […]

Sometimes one can’t help but wonder if this whole Obamacare fiasco is ever going to end. It’s like a recurring bad dream…an infinite nightmare that keeps returning, with new plot twists and horrible surprises every evening.

In his new Gold Videocast, Peter Schiff explained how Obamacare has created a “job-sharing” economy that is skewing the government’s employment data. As he put it:
Obamacare forces employers to provide insurance for full-time employees. As a result, employers are hiring more part-time workers than […]

As they say, elections have consequences, and so do the lies told by both the Democraps and Rethuglicans.
