The Census, PC Police, Another Lying Politician And Pseudonyms

*How many does it take to count us? Here’s an interesting tidbit from another column I write for Personal Liberty Alerts. "This Week in History”" is the last item every Wednesday.

The Debate Over Illegal Immigration Gets Even Crazier

Remember the expression, to swallow a camel but choke on a gnat? That’s how I feel about the reaction of several people who commented on what I recently wrote about illegal immigration. Read on for more on the illegal immigration debate…

Technology And The Census

On June 1, 1890, some 45,000 census workers set out to count every person then living in the United States. And for the first time they had modern technology to help in their efforts.

Here’s how Paul Johnson, one of America’s greatest historians, describes the moment in his book, A […]

Annie, Hannity, Goldman Sachs And Gold

*Leapin’ lizards, folks, Annie’s gone. I’m sorry to report that Little Orphan Annie won’t live to see 100. The folks at Tribune Media Services say the last column of the iconic comic strip has been sent to the handful of newspapers that still run it. The column made its debut on Aug. 5, 1924. Annie […]

The Birth Of Wall Street

What would become the New York Stock Exchange was born 218 years ago this week. On May 17, 1792, 21 stock brokers and representatives of three firms met under a buttonwood tree at 68 Wall Street and signed what became known as “the Buttonwood Agreement” to regularize the buying and selling of public shares.
