The minimum wage is an assault on the ability of our young of all races and creeds to get a job and learn a trade. It is a vehicle to ensure the job market is closed to new people by the vehicle of ensuring that it is always too expensive to hire and train them. And the higher it gets, the more we hammer the futures of our children and grandchildren into oblivion.

The expansion of the ban on texting while driving is following the same predictable path we started eight years ago with seat belt legislation.  Lets stop it while we can.

We are well on the way to a place where the cure (militarized law enforcement and erosion on fundamental constitutional rights) is worse than the disease (drug use), which means we conservatives made a huge mistake supporting this.  The marijuana legalization initiative on the August ballot is a way to start  doing something about it.

When Cook Inlet Drift Boat operators go to federal court demanding that the feds manage Cook Inlet salmon, they are not interested in your right to fill your freezer with fish.  Instead, they are busily lining their own pockets at your expense.

Our unique constitution divides power between states and a federal government. This division originally left most power with the states, but permitted the new United States to handle those things that could not be managed by the individual states. Over time, this division of power has eroded to the extent that the states are fast becoming vestigal organs on the body politic.

When the EPA claims to base their diktats on "science" it is always important to determine which friendly environmental organization participated in crafting that "science."  Unfortunately, our Boy Senator views a fundamentally corrupt process as "science."

Politician’s stumping for election make promises for which funds do not exist, for which the technology does not exist, or is too expensive. The truly unfortunate part is when they enact these glowing promises for future benefits into law. When the day of reckoning arrives, they are often long gone from the scene. In today’s column, we attempt to hold them accountable.

The democrat majority in the US Senate last week decided that an extension of unemployment benefits was more important than job creation.  With 92 million Americans permanently out of the work force, this seems more of an exercise in manufacturing new democrat voters than taking care of people in need.

In a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute a month or two ago, 76,000 women followed found no statistically significant relationship between exposure to secondhand smoke and lung cancer.  Secondhand smoke is as deadly as perfume, cologne, flatulence and body odor.

More continuously legitimate government is possible by shortening the “lame duck” session that occurs every two years. We also need to move Congressional operations into the electronic age.

When Interior can cancel a proposed land swap to allow a road through a National Wildlife Refuge that few ever visit via the excuse of some undetermined threat to nesting birds while actively killing banded owls in the Pacific Northwest and writing rules to allow wind farms to kill hundreds of thousands of birds over the next 30 years, we have the very definition of insanity.

The Congressional appropriation process is broken. To promote less wasteful government funding this column attempts to:

  • revitalize the House of Representative’s origin function,
  • eliminate omnibus appropriation bills, and
  • provide for an orderly continuation procedure.

The 17th amendment removed an important power of the states in the interest of reducing corruption. Moving that power back to the states while creating a hybrid system that also curtails corruption is the goal of this new amendment.

As ObamaCare forces hundreds of thousands onto Medicaid, it also makes their property subject for liens and repayment in full.  Is this a conscious assault on property rights by the left?

The argument about failing ObamaCare websites is bogus.  It is not about the websites.  Rather it is what you are compelled to do by ObamaCare itself.  In this case, the cure is much worse than the disease.
