We have just finished celebrating the well deserved National Small Business Week.  A yearly chance to pay respects to the hardest working men and women in America; small business owners.  This important event provides a forum to honor entrepreneurs who inspire us and who make up the foundation of our society.  More than 27 million small businesses in America have stayed the course, and kept the country afloat through the recession which has weighed so heavily on America for the last three years. Small businesses are the economic engine which drives the country.  Neither the government nor Wall Street drive…

Proving once again that the good of the United States is far less important than protecting corrupt union cronies, the Obama administration today attacked Boeing for building a new manufacturing facility in South Carolina, because it is a right to work state.  In what should be heralded as a tremendously positive business move, a move which created thousands of jobs in a terrible economy, Boeing is being attacked by Obama because they created those jobs in a non-union state. The action by the National Labor Relations Board against Boeing is being undertaken by the Obama administration because unions have committed…

The American Federation of Government Employees, which represents 500,000 federal employees. making it the largest union federal employee union, has sued the federal government, seeking more disclosure about which federal employees and positions will be declared non-essential in the event government shuts down at midnight Friday night. The last time the government shut down during the 1995-1996 budget standoff, much of the drama came around the interruption of federal services.  This time, though, the heat will likely be felt over unionized federal workers. There are now two million federal workers, almost half of whom are unionized, reflecting a national move…

As congress continues to seek a compromise on how much federal spending to cut in order to avoid a government shutdown, Tea Party activists who helped propel Republicans back into power are growing impatient with the budget debate. When Republicans captured the House in November, vowing to slash $100 billion in federal spending from the budget year ending in September, 76 percent of Tea Party activists supported their deficit-reduction plan, according to a new Pew Research poll released last week.  But after House Republicans approved a plan last month to cut federal spending by $61 billion, that Tea Party support…

Democrats in Congress say they have grown frustrated with Obama because of his lack of leadership in their ongoing battle with Republicans over spending cuts, but with nothing in Obama’s career to suggest that he is one for political rough riding, it is odd for Democrats to express dismay that Obama isn't leading the charge. During the bloody 14-month fight over ObamaCare, Obama opted not to fully engage until the final three weeks.  Since Obama declined to take the lead when it came to a multi-trillion-dollar law that will forever be associated with his name, Democrats should know that he…

Although the sea of socialist rhetoric and hypocrisy through which Barack Obama makes us wade is routinely deep, I found a news blurb this morning that I found particularly  hypocritical.  Barack Obama is meeting   with the US Chamber of Commerce to see what he can do to help create jobs. Obama also wants to assure the business community he supports them. That's a tall order for the most anti-business President in our history. Then it dawned on me, this is what Obama meant by transparency when he was running for office, because his effort to appear pro-business by making nice…

Older American voters are the voting block most likely to vote in any election. This year, however, they are going to do so in record numbers. Seniors are supporting Republicans more than any other demographic group, in this election cycle, and they are poised to vote at historic levels. Republicans, who are usually more likely to vote than Democrats, are far more likely to vote than are their Democratic counterparts this year, in every age group. But, older Republicans and independents who are leaning right, are creating a political tsunami that is crashing down on thousands of Democratic candidates. This…

Home prices all across the nation seem like they're a bargain  Mortgage interest rates are the lowest we've seen in generations. There are millions of houses on the market from which to choose. Why, then, are houses across the nation sitting on the market for so long? How's this for happy news during the Summer of Recovery: sales of previously owned homes fell 27 percent in July to the weakest level in 15 years, the National Association of Realtors reported last week. This represents the largest single monthly drop in history and they've been keeping these records for 40 years.…

Our elected officials in Washington have struck again. Just months after passing a tax-raising, job-killing health care bill, Congress approved and the socialist who resides in the White House has signed financial regulatory reform legislation that lacks - ironically enough - any actual reform. Proponents of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act will undoubtedly hail it as a triumph of Main Street over Wall Street, but they have it backward. It will be small businesses and families shouldering the brunt of this legislation through higher fees, less choice, and fewer opportunities to responsibly access credit. So what…
