Rick Perry and the left's politics of destruction
The left is so desperate to obtain and maintain power that they will do anything, say anything and destroy anyone who gets in their way.  These abuses of the public trust tear at an already heavily frayed fabric of society, where the public assumes that the law itself will not be abused. 

E-cigarettes a tobacco product?
FDA says so, even though they don't contain any tobacco. Huh?  

EPA goes from Environmental Protection Agency to Extremist Political Agenda
The countries with the best human health and the most material wealth are those with the highest energy consumption. America needs energy that is abundant, available, and affordable.

Are we due for another recession?
To get back to the Fed's original low-end prediction for 2.8 percent growth for the year — since we actually shrank at 2.9 percent in the first quarter — the economy will need to grow an average of 4.7 percent each quarter for the next three quarters. Good luck with that.

The obvious response to agricultural subsidies — get rid of them — sounds right to the ear, but in practice this approach has run up against a buzz saw from members representing many of the very red states that have formed the core of conservative support in Congress.

Permission to republish original opeds granted.

Does McCarthy win for House Majority Leader spell end of Ex-Im Bank?
Ahead of the June 18 House Majority Leader election, House Majority Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) promised members not to force the bank's reauthorization due up in September to the floor for a vote.

McCarthy's victory a testimony to his hard work not ideology
Those who want to make this internal election into an establishment versus tea party battle have a hard time explaining away Rep. Tom Graves' nomination of McCarthy in the race.
