You Don’t Want To Be A Billionaire

After three years of working to keep inflation in check, the Federal Reserve is now changing course and setting out a policy to raise inflation above its current target of around 2 percent. 

A Word To The Wise…

While Democrats prepare for the winter of their discontent, Republicans are practicing their best end zone dance moves. As a student of history, I thought I might offer a Santayana-style caveat. Presuming November produces the electoral Waterloo the Democrats deserve, the GOP needs to remember the lessons of the past. 

Clamping Down On New Technologies

With the advent of new communications technologies like voice-over-Internet and text messaging, the Feds are having a tough time monitoring our conversations. And they aren’t particularly happy about it. 

With Liberty And Justice For Some

Just under a month ago, patriots filled the space in front of the Lincoln Memorial for a demonstration. Fronted by conservative icons Glenn Beck and erstwhile Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the Restoring Honor rally was massive. And when I say massive, I’m talking Rosie O’Donnell visiting the Twinkie factory massive. 

Mission Creep

The Red Carpet For Mustapha

Perhaps the most oft-repeated slogan of the War on Terror is “…fight them there so we don’t have to fight them here.” Irrefutable logic when weighed against the designs of every two bit desert-dwelling nut job with a B-40 and a dream. But what happens if the aforementioned nut job already has the B-40 (or 500 pounds of ammonium nitrate) and the dream; but isn’t dwelling in the desert?

The Food and Drug Administration is set to approve the sale of genetically modified (GM) salmon to consumers and has said it has no plans to require the fish be specially labeled as genetically modified.
