The Dow’s Santa Claus Rally

Where’s our Santa Claus Rally? Back in the good old 20th century we regularly had a rally in the stock market in the days leading up to Christmas. During the last decade of the century it became such a regular part of the year end, everyone expected a “Santa Claus” rally. Every December in the […]

Read this article to learn what’s special about the Lollipop Tree…

A $261 million job, 50-year Bonds and a Saab Story

*Man, that’s a lot to pay for a job. No one was surprised that Michael Bloomberg won reelection for a third term as the mayor of New York City. But what he paid for the dubious privilege was impressive—$102 million of his own money. Add that to the $74 million he spent on his first […]

The Ratification of the Bill of Rights

This week should mark one of the most joyous celebrations of the year for every person who loves liberty. Unfortunately, the reason for such jubilation will barely be mentioned.

On Dec. 15, 1791, the Bill of Rights became an official part of the Constitution of the United States of America. Virginia was the 10th state to ratify the first 10 amendments, thus providing the necessary two-thirds votes for approval. (Remember, there were only 13 states back then.)

You probably remember from high school history lessons that the adoption of the Constitution was far from a sure thing. Many legislators were afraid that the framers had not done nearly enough to protect Americans from the danger that frightened them the most—the almost-irresistible tendency of government to grow ever more powerful.

Honduran Democracy, Unemployment and Liberals

*Please Mr. President, honor democracy in Honduras. The people of Honduras have voted overwhelmingly for a new, non-Marxist president. The turnout of eligible voters was substantially higher than we had in the United States last November. A few days later, their congress also voted overwhelmingly not to reinstate Manuel Zelaya, the Chavez crony who was […]

The War on Christmas

The war against Christmas continues. Schools are now holding holiday shows rather than Christmas shows, and store clerks no longer say Merry Christmas. All because a vocal minority of anti-religion zealots has so frightened the spineless sissies in leadership positions. But this is not what the founders intended. Read this article to learn more about the war on Christmas…

An Obituary That Changed Perception

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to read your own obituary? More than 100 years ago that actually happened to one of the richest men in the world. What he read changed forever how he would be remembered. The man was Alfred B. Nobel. The source of his vast wealth was the […]

What do you mean, “Keep some powder dry?

I want to thank the many thousands of you who have posted comments at the end of my various Straight Talk columns. I really enjoy reading these interesting, intelligent, informed, opinionated, controversial and sometimes downright insulting responses that you all have posted. If you’ve never read some of the correspondence that my articles have elicited, […]

Presidential Deal-making

On Dec. 1, 1824, the United States Presidential election was thrown into the House of Representatives for the first time. With four candidates running for President that year, no candidate won a majority of votes or enough delegates to win in the Electoral College. Andrew Jackson won more popular votes, more electoral votes and more […]
