by Skip January 25, 2015

From the UL: President Obama has threatened to veto a bill that would require federal regulations to be cost-effective and receive more public input.

by Skip January 21, 2015

We’ve pointed this out before – even as Obama and his Administration castigate the guy-gal pay differential, we have dryly noted that the White House doesn’t even bother with the pretense of following its rhetoric in the real world.  Yes folks, women are being discriminated against even in that bastion of Progressivism, the Obama White […]

Data Point – Medium Household Income

by Skip January 21, 2015

Obama said that we were “rising” as the recession has been over; “the shadow of crisis has passed”.  Er, facts are stubborn things and a lot of the middle class doubts his words of fealty to them as his policies have done them little good: Income is down for the middle class and that’s best […]

Hoeven, Manchin, Reach For 67 On Keystone

by Mike January 13, 2015

BIPARTISANSHIP! “Coal Senator”, Joe Manchin (D, WV) and Oil Patch Senator John Hoeven (R, ND) are co-sponsors of the Keystone Pipeline bill in the senate, and they already have 63 votes lined up to pass it. It also seems as though Mitch McConnell’s collegial approach may pay dividends, at least in this case, by allowing […]
