  • Racial quotas as financial services reform?

    Although a great deal of attention has been focused on the pros and cons of “the Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010” overall, little to no attention is being played to specific provisions within the bill which dictate onerous new racial mandates that will be imposed on financial institutions nationwide. Recall that the financial services bill purports to put limits and regulations in place to prevent another financial meltdown from occurring. However these so called affirmative action provisions are ill suited to that task and moreover they are likely to fail to meet constitutional muster. Published July 15 2010

  • Arizona lawsuit lingers over mid term election strategies

    The timing of the federal government’s lawsuit over Arizona’s immigration law has raised the question if the Obama administration is so concerned about the mid-term elections in November, that the White House and their allies on the Hill are willing to frighten their Hispanic base to get them out to the polls in what expects to be a lackluster turnout for Democrats this year. Western Democratic governors have already cited their concerns to Obama administration officials regarding the “toxic” effects of the lawsuit on state races. Published July 14 2010

  • San Francisco bans...

    San Francisco, long known for its liberal politics, proposes and passes numerous "bans" and restrictive orders on its residents. The latest proposal from San Francisco's Commission of Animal Control and Welfare is a ban on the sale of all pets (other than fish) throughout the city. Such a move is likely to cause great financial damage to local pet stores causing pet store business owners to shut down. This proposed pet sale ban will only add to the list of bans San Francisco has already instituted. A simple google search with the phrase "San Francisco bans" calls up a plethora of news headlines over the years that have that phrase. Published July 9 2010

  • What’s in a name?

    “Progressive.” That sounds nice, “Progressive.” This is a fantastic label. It invokes snuggly thoughts of a marshmallow world. It connotes glorious advancement and movement; a path that leads to a promised future, endeavor or destination. And it is the accepted and incessantly communicated euphemism for liberal. A good question is whether it is an honest match. Published July 9 2010

  • New Black Panther MySpace Page flashback

    The failure of the Obama administration's Department of Justice to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party, caused an uproar last year, but since former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams spoke out and testified before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission that the decision to drop the Black Panther case was politically motivated on the basis of race, questions are being asked about whether or not Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department is being run on a political agenda from the White House.
