Biden’s War Against the Internet

It's a miracle of private sector innovation and the magic of the free enterprise system that technologies that were only the playthings of the super-rich a generation ago are now available and affordable to almost all Americans. Back in 2000, only half of Americans had internet access. Now it's ...

The Gambling Industry Wants to Make Fantasy Sports Leagues Illegal

The REAL Story of the Two Americas

For the past 30 years or so, the Left has invented a narrative that there are two Americas: a group of very super-rich people (the one-percenters) who have prospered over the past several decades, and everyone else who has gotten poorer. It's a fairy-tale narrative because almost all Americans have ...

Green Groups Are No Longer Promoting a Cleaner Environment

The late, great humorist P.J. O'Rourke used to quip that everyone wants to save the world, but no one wants to wash the dishes. Well, now that can be said for traditional environmental groups that seem to have lost their way. Green groups are supposed to be about keeping our rivers, lakes and ...

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Dems Have Now Officially Rejected President John F. Kennedy’s Legacy

There's a political cartoon going around that shows John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy sitting on a couch watching a speech by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. The two hold their palms to their heads and moan that their legacy is being twisted and ruined. This has the situation completely backward. It ...

Will New York Politicians Tax Wall Street Out of Existence?

Let's face it. Anyone who works in, or just visits, the Wall Street area of Manhattan can't deny the aura of power and money isn't what it was 20, 30 or 50 years ago. The vibrancy, the financial dominance, the gusto seems to have gone missing -- so have many of the Gordon Gekko high rollers. ...
