The Avocado Index: High Finance in Hard Times

I have what I call my “Avocado Index.” I happen to like avocadoes, even if they are an acquired taste. My problem, however, is that a single avocado now costs $2.50 at my local supermarket.

But many conservatives understood that, by capitulating to the political Left, McCain and the Republican Party were ceding unnecessary ground to Barack Obama and his “progressive” Democrats.

The Brutal Reality of Obama’s ‘Tax Cuts’ is Severe and Complete Economic Peril

Brad O’Leary

On Monday, The Wall Street Journal confirmed the accuracy of the figures detailed in my book, The Audacity of Deceit: Barack Obama’s War on American Values, (released earlier this year) that show how Barack Obama’s tax cuts and deductions would increase the number of those who pay no federal income taxes from 30 percent to 44 percent.  This critically important, yet long overlooked, information is finally making its way to center stage as the debate over the economy heats up.  It can no longer be dismissed as political fiction.  It must be seriously taken as brutal reality.

Could There Be Violence If Obama Loses?

Much has been written and said about the words uttered by a handful of people who have attended rallies featuring John McCain and Sarah Palin.  The liberal media would have us believe that all those who attend these rallies and by extension all those who support the McCain-Palin ticket are racists ready to lynch Barack Obama at a moment’s notice.

Deutsche Bank Sold Massive Amounts of Phantom Stock

- Mark Mitchell
A couple of days before Lehman fell and all hell broke loose on Wall Street, Floyd Norris, the chief business correspondent of The New York Times, published a blog (headline: “Short Sale Conspiracies”) wherein he implied that I was mentally insane for suggesting that Deutsche Bank Securities had been caught selling “massive amounts of phantom stock.”

Sarah Palin For RNC Chair

The Enduring Foolishness of Racial Politics

Anthony B. Bradley

With only a few weeks to Election Day, racial politics has reared its pathetic head as pundits attempt to decipher poll numbers and audience comments at political rallies. It seems silly to imagine that adults in America may vote along racial lines but it should come as no surprise. Many people on the ideological margins of society vote irrationally. In fact, voting along racial lines says less about racism than it does about the lack of mature civic responsibility among voters who are indifferent to the nation’s common good.

As someone who gives praise to a merciful God for the invention of the Internet connection to my banking information, I will not pretend that I understand much about the arithmetic of polls except that they seem to be wrong a great deal of the time.
