Paid Time Off

Both Republican and Democratic politicians want government to “do more” to give parents paid time off. “This is not a women’s issue. It’s a family issue,” says Ivanka Trump. “(E)very worker in America should be guaranteed at least 12 weeks,” says Sen. Bernie Sanders. “That’s a very arbitrary number! Why not 14 weeks? Why not […]

“I don’t feel safe,” says a Harvard student in a video. What threatens her? The dean of her Harvard dormitory, law professor Ronald Sullivan, agreed to be part of accused sexual harasser Harvey Weinstein’s legal defense team.

Look at the dollar bills in your wallet. They say they are “legal tender for all debts.” But are they? What makes them valuable? What makes them worth anything?

There might have been violence, but Antifa’s “de-escalation team” protected him, he says. That surprised me. “Antifa has a de-escalation team?” I ask Pool in my latest internet video. “They […]

A Lie, a Myth and a Question

Socialists like Bernie Sanders tell us that “the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer.” That’s a lie. Yes, rich people got absurdly rich. Last year, says Oxfam, “the wealth of the world’s billionaires increased (by) $2.5 billion a day.” I say, so what? The poor did not get poorer. Bernie’s wrong about that. […]
