Over the past weekend, Donald Trump made a major play for the minority vote. On Friday night, he challenged a crowd in Dimondale, Michigan. “Look at how much African-American communities are suffering from Democratic control…..What do you have to lose by trying something new like Trump? ..You live in poverty.

Big Government Means Big Corruption (especially when the Clintons are involved)

Back in 2009, I shared some academic research showing the unsavory link between lobbying expenditures and bailout cash from TARP. Just in case anybody naively thinks that such distasteful favor-swapping no longer occurs, here’s some more evidence. A column in the International Business Times summarizes some new scholarly research, once again showing the corrupt nexus between […]

Optics and Media Bias: Trump’s Visit to Baton Rouge

The Growing Crisis of Excessive and Unfunded Retirement Benefits for State and Local Bureaucrats (and a Libertarian Quandary)

As a taxpayer, I don’t like the fact that government employees get paid more than folks in the private sector.  But the big difference between bureaucrats and regular workers isn’t so much the pay, it’s the fringe benefits. And perhaps the  biggest difference of all is that government bureaucrats get far more  lavish retiree benefits. […]

A Basket of Golden Eggs vs. A Healthy Goose: Clinton & Trump’s Economic Plans
