The secret of Easter: Just Believe

Obama Moves to Weaponize IRS

By Matt Barber In 2010 millions of American tea-party constitutionalists, to include the GOP’s Christian base, united in a remarkable grass-roots effort to rein in our unbridled federal government and return it to its expressly limited constitutional confines.

December Economic Numbers Go From Upbeat to Ugly Down Very Quickly

By Mike McCune –   Whoever is eyeballing the economy better get rid of the old standby baloney from college testbooks.

Sexual Predator Honored With U.S. Postage Stamp

By Matt Barber  Benjamin Franklin famously quipped, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Franklin evidently failed to envisage today’s postmodern left. For the conservative, there exists at least one other certainty, and it is this: The degree to which “progressives” attack you corresponds precisely to the degree [...]

Default Hits Not On Debt But Unpaid SS

Global Warming Report ‘Facts’ Debatable

Shredded Constitution Means We Live On Borrowed Time

By Mike McCune –   The Constitution is under mass attack by progressive politicians. For this reason alone, the best news that could happen is a government shutdown to protect this document that contains all the principles on which this civil government was established.   The Constitution, despite popular belief today, did not guarantee any group or [...]

Banks Disappear In Economic Weakness

By Mike McCune –   To paraphrase President Obama, “I took my eye off the [real economic] ball.” For that I apologize to Rant readers.   While trying to keep up with the messes scattered by this Administration–Benghazi, NSA, IRS, Syria, monetization of the debt, etc.–I took my eye off the economic ball.

The Rant – All Obama’s Got Is Hope

by Mike McCune –   President Obama wrote an autobiography The Audacity of Hope. Maybe he should have read the book with a critical review.   Even though he’s been President of the United States for 4 years and nearly nine months, he still talks like hope is the end-all for his tenure and not [...]

By Mike McCune –   The No. 1 paradox in the U. S. labor market today is more jobs are being listed by companies but fewer jobs are being filled.   Since June, 2010, the number of listed job openings has risen by 50%. This means for every two jobs listed in June 2010, three [...]

Crowded Prisons Might End Sentencing Tax Evaders

by Mike McCune — Eric Holder, the detestable Attorney General of the United States who selectively enforces laws and has rendered the U.S. law moot, is at it again. Holder, using cost as a factor, wants to eliminate the overly-long sentences for druggies in this country.   On this principle, economically logical, I agree with him. [...]

Bill of Rights’ Taxation in America’s Future?

Quality Missing From Economic Measurements

by Mike McCune —  Every time our government borrows a dollar or prints a dollar not based on anything of recognized value, the dollar in your pocket, savings account or investment goes down.

The Rant – Detroit: Inevitable Fall

Detroit’s announced bankruptcy proceedings have put the economic-recovery-that-isn’t mantra from Washington in jeopardy.
