NRA Lottery Winners: 2 dead, 2 wounded

Monday in America, and another school shooting has taken place. Let’s go ahead and rename school shootings “The NRA Lottery”. Did your kid win the NRA Lottery this week? Who will win next week? Could be your neighbor, your kid, or even you! You could win the NRA Lottery at a shopping mall, a school, city hall, or even at home. With 87 winners per day in the United States, the next person to win a lifetime supply of lead could be someone you know! No need to enter, as you (and your loved ones) are automatically eligible for tomorrow’s...

Mixing Religion and Government

Who would ever venture to disagree that there is a body count associated with mixing religion and government? Enshrined in government at the state and local levels are laws and even constitutional amendments that fly in the face of the Establishment Clause, and their effect is a measurable one. In my home state of Florida, discrimination against LGBT individuals is codified in the state constitution, passed by merit of popular vote the religious-backed notion that gay people are not entitled to the same rights to marry as straight people are.

The United States’ victory during the Civil War was only possible due in part to issuing bonds and deep deficit spending by Lincoln. World War 2 was waged...

Raise the Debt Ceiling

I get this question a lot from my friends who don’t pay any attention to politics.  Should we raise the debt ceiling?  My answer is invariably a resounding “Yes.  Or not, but let me first cash in my 401k for Euros.” If you are like most Americans at some point in your life you’ve inadvertently missed a credit card payment or experienced a bank overdraft fee. Depending upon the terms you have the result is that your interest rate skyrockets to the “default rate” or you get hit with penalties for a missed payment. These harsh responses make it...
