Bike Paths

I am receiving more phone calls, emails and visits about the present road closures than any other local issue. Every single person is angry – asking what the hell the town is allowing and why. My understanding is we can thank MAG and its know-it-all members. Yes, the town voted 7-0 for these bicycle paths. Why? It was presumably someone else’s money (meaning ours).

Choosing national suicide

As Winston Churchill noted in his indictment of appeasement of Nazi Germany in the 1930s, "there is a great danger in refusing to believe things you do not like." Barack Hussein Obama is succeeding in his fundamental transformation; that is, dismantling the United States as a capitalist republic, based on Judeo-Christian democratic principles.

Paris, Brussels, and 21st Century Europe

Some time ago a former student emailed me a video clip that I now show my Major European Governments course. It’s a five-minute news piece by Dale Hurd of CBN News, a conservative Christian outlet—the rare kind of place where you see reports like this. The piece was on radical Islam in Europe, specifically in Belgium, and it was based on Hurd’s interview with a Muslim leader in Brussels, the very heart of modern Europe, of secular Europe, of the European Union, and of everything Islamic fundamentalists despise about Europe.

Trump's call for 'like-Ike' illegal immigrant deportations draws fire

"12 million illegal immigrants, to send them back, 500,000 a month, is just not — not possible."

That was former Florida Republican Governor Jeb Bush at the Fox Business-Wall Street Journal Republican Presidential Debate in Milwaukee, Wis. on Nov. 10, stating that deporting illegal immigrants — all of them — would simply not be possible.

IRS fines small business for lending a helping hand

Small businesses beware.

The IRS has started picking on the little guy.

The tax man has started fining small firms large sums for doing nothing more than giving their employees money to help pay for health insurance.

The feds claim that the arrangement subverts the Affordable Care Act by allowing employers to avoid offering full-fledged insurance policies. But the fines are actually depriving small-business employees of thousands of dollars in compensation – and reducing the number of people with insurance.
