ObamaCare May Devastate the Real Estate and Travel Industries

Americans are among the most mobile people on earth, but ObamaCare may soon start freezing them in place.

The Real Country-Killer in 2013

Never mind the “fiscal cliff.”  America went bankrupt, technically, at midnight on December 31, 2012.  We hit the debt ceiling of $ 16.394 trillion.  Yet the U.S. government needs to borrow more money than is legally allowed.  So Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is now juggling federal accounts via questionable extraordinary measures to squeeze out perhaps […]

The Real Lesson of the Election

The Real Price of Obama’s Prevarications

Guest at Ohio dog pound was a real pig

PAULDING, Ohio (AP) — A dog pound in northwest Ohio has said goodbye to a guest more appropriate for a barnyard. The Paulding County dog warden took in a pot-bellied pig for a few days this week after a woman who’d been sitting for the animal got stuck with him when the owners wouldn’t take […]

Real Life K.O.’s Zorba and His EU Friends

In Nikos Kazanzakis’ Zorba the Greek we see both Kazanzakis’ disdain for capitalists and a description of the Greek ethos which is proving that country’s economic downfall: “You think too much. That is your trouble. Clever people and grocers, they weigh everything.” By the European Union’s own reckoning, the euro, its single currency, was the […]
