Affluence Apartheid in America

And now for a few choice words concerning my recent demotion to the status of second-class citizen. The amazing thing is how quickly my metamorphosis into Cockroachlandia occurred. One minute, I'm walking around like an ordinary human; the next minute, I'm an insect, an unwanted stiff, a bum, a vagabond, a jamoke. About as popular as feet in a punchbowl.

Why Texas Can't Promise Tax Cuts

What would happen if we ran Texas like a business? A big chunk of our core revenue stream-oil & gas taxes-is suddenly on shaking ground. Do you hand out shareholder dividends (tax cuts), reinvest cash reserves for unmet needs (funding for schools, roads, and water), or hunker down in the face of economic uncertainty?

The EPA's Unconstitutional Highway Funding Threat

Technology Vs Privacy: Is Your Home No Longer Your Castle?

Education is Too Important Not to Leave to the Marketplace

This week, events around the country will highlight the importance of parental control of education as part of National School Choice Week.

Whatever Happened to Pragmatism?

We complain about a two-party system that's stuck in ideological ditches, but somehow it never occurs to us to embrace pragmatism, the uniquely American philosophy that was created as a reaction to ideological stagnation.

For decades conservatives have advocated scaling back the role of the federal government in transportation, yet the federal gas tax that was supposed to end in 1969 is still hanging around 46 years later.
