Socialism in Denmark

Socialism has failed across the world everywhere it has been tried. From the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe to China, Vietnam, North Korea and, most recently, Venezuela. So forget those power mad Marxists who got it wrong. Denmark is the socialist model to follow. Denmark is the Disneyland of socialism. It is where everybody is …

Editor Note: much of this post is pulled from a Daily Signal article. The link is now provided and the content from that post is now offset to show its origin. New Hampshire has a “Red Flag” bill in the legislature. The question is whether there is such a thing as correct focus on the …

Rarely are congressional hearings due to a problem coming full circle. But recently Senator Grassley dragged executives from seven top pharmaceutical companies before a Senate Finance Committee hearing.

What’s Sauce for the Goose…

Democrats seem to think Trump’s presidency is a threat to American governance. That might be a touch hyperbolic. One reason they cite is Trump’s disregard for written and unwritten precedents, institutional “norms,” that have long governed the way our representative republic operates. As evidence they offer that he hasn’t released his tax returns, he implied …

New! Improved! Sex-Ed Plus Censorship Plus Mandatory Morality

In the beginning… Colorado passed controversial sex-ed legislation back in 2013. What they did started national discussions about how much we want to expose children to. The Colorado legislation was a mandatory, comprehensive sex education law. It requires students undergo “culturally sensitive” lessons. “Culturally sensitive” means sex-ed lessons incorporating minority perspectives on sex. Minority perspectives …
