Federal Government study: Minimum wage raises unemployment

In Policy by Mr. RightLeave a Comment

It literally makes poverty worse. From FRBSF.org: …Some new strategies in recent studies have also found generally stronger evidence of job loss for low-skilled workers. For example, Clemens and Wither …

MSNBC’s most ridiculous moments in 2015

In Media Bias by Mr. RightLeave a Comment

Washington Free Beacon has compiled a montage of MSNBC’s most ridiculous moments from 2015 and it’s pretty great. Honestly, I’m glad it wasn’t my responsibility to sift through countless hours of MSNBC drivel and subjectively determine the most outlandish, ridiculous, and in some cases, perhaps literally insane nonsense uttered on the flailing network, but I’m thankful that someone did it. Anyhow, without further …

Virginia GOP to governor: You don’t like guns? How about we take away your security detail?

In 2nd Amendment, Politics by Mr. RightLeave a Comment

We recently told you about the Virginia governor’s unconstitutional action to remove firearm reciprocity to dozens of states. Well, some of his liberty-loving political opponents might require him to put his money where his mouth is. From Bearing Arms: Virginia’s radically anti-gun Governor and Attorney General were probably quite pleased with themselves when they spitefully severed concealed carry agreements with …

Surprise! Walmart announces 10% decline in earnings after caving to pressure to raise minimum wage of employees

In Economy by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

This is what happens when you follow the advice of people who don’t understand economics. Walmart is suffering the consequences of raising the starting pay-rate of their employees, after much ballyhoo from protestors (mostly from outside Walmart’s employees) and liberal media outlets. For those of you who find yourself among the economically illiterate and can’t understand why this is a bad thing—it means that Walmart will be less able to open new stores or hire new employees and will likely be forced to lay off some of the employees who “benefitted” from this foolishness. It’s a lose-lose for everyone.

Christian owners of Sweet Cakes Bakers pay $135,000 jizya after refusing to bake wedding cake for gay couple

In 1st Amendment, Society by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

Under Islam’s Sharia law, infidels who do not follow Islam are forced to pay a “jizya” tax in order to live alongside the Muslim ruling class. What has happened with the owners of Sweet Cakes Bakery in Oregon is no different. The State of Oregon has decided that their religious beliefs are intolerable, unless the couple pays a fine, and after a long fought legal battle, the couple has finally been forced to cough up $135,000 in “damages” for refusing to participate in a gay couple’s wedding ceremony. The gay community is celebrating this as a victory for “tolerance,” but in doing so, they only prove their own intolerance for refusing to leave this family with sincere religious convictions in peace. The gay couple has inflicted their own version of Sharia on these Christians, forcing their beliefs on them and demanding the jizya for their refusal to lay aside their beliefs.

Another day, another hilariously ignorant tweet from Bernie Sanders

In Climate Change, Politics by Mr. RightLeave a Comment

Much like a membership in the Jelly of the Month Club (content warning), Bernie Sanders is the gift that keeps on giving. Here is Bernie’s dumb-Tweet du jour: Nobody can recall a Christmas Eve where the temperature was 65 degrees.

Here they are! Obama’s top ten Constitutional violations of 2015. Do you agree with the list?

In Poor Richard's News by Mr. RightLeave a Comment

The Cato Institute has compiled a list of the most egregious examples of Constitutional violations by the Obama administration over the course of the past year. They write: …it hasn’t been difficult to point to constitutional abuses; the hard part is narrowing them down to a top-ten list. I did so in 2011 and 2013 (and once for Eric Holder …
