Guess What Your Income Tax Would Have Been in 1862Guess What Your Income Tax Would Have Been in 1862

Rick Santorum Rick Santorum: Overtaxed and Underpaid

There’s nothing like April 15 to remind Americans that they’re overtaxed and underpaid. And President Obama and the Congressional Democrats are hard at work to make sure it stays that way.

John Stossel John Stossel: Earth Daze

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That's how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we've survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts.

Walter E. Williams Walter E. Williams: Equality in Discipline

If schools cannot justify differentials in rates of punishment by race or ethnic group, they will face the loss of federal funds and be forced to undertake costly diversity training. The nation's educators can avoid sanctions by adopting a racial quota system for student discipline. So as Roger Clegg, president and general counsel of the Center for Equal Opportunity, predicts, "school officials will either start disciplining students who shouldn't be, or, more likely, will not discipline some students who ought to be."

Brent Bozell Brent Bozell: Helping the Democrats Avoid the Victims

For a moment, imagine yourself back in 2006, at the height of liberal aggression about the "imperial hubris" of George W. Bush in the war on terror. The left's contempt for this man was rampant. Liberals savaged him for turning the world against this country. Keith Olbermann announced "the beginning of the end of America."

Jonah Goldberg Jonah Goldberg: Holder's Race Card

Holder's hypocrisy is stunning given that he once famously chastised Americans as being "cowards" for not talking openly about race. Who's the coward now?

John Ransom John Ransom: The War on Federal Bureaucrats Opens at Bundy Ranch

Rebellion typically starts after a period of lassitude and hopelessness in the face of overwhelming power. Populations spend years, even decades muttering under their breath about abuses of power, but feel ineffectual to enact real reform.

Bob Barr Bob Barr: Feds Provoke Range War Over Fees And A Turtle

Gopherus agassizii is the binomial name given to the desert tortoise, a roughly foot-long creature with a lifespan that can stretch to more than half-a-century. This turtle inhabits the Mojave Desert in America’s great southwest.

Todd Starnes Todd Starnes: Did Professor Advocate Censorship of Conservative Student Newspaper?

University of Minnesota at Morris biology professor Dr. Paul Zachary Myers doesn’t like young Republicans. In fact, he called them “a**holes.”

Hank  Adler Hank Adler: Tax Refund Siezure

As has been widely reported, a single sentence in the 2008 Farm Bill, Public Law 110-246, is said to be responsible for the Internal Revenue Service seizing refunds from the children of taxpayers who the Social Security Administration says were inadvertently overpaid in the 1960s and 1970s. Are they kidding?

Reince  Priebus Reince Priebus: On Tax Day, the RNC Is Suing the IRS

Today’s the day Americans send their hard-earned tax dollars into the IRS. But this year, the IRS is going to receive something else: a lawsuit.

John Hanlon John Hanlon: A Real-life Spiritual Journey is Brought to the Big Screen in Heaven is for Real

There are few people who know pain as heart-wrenching as a parent who believes that he or she could be losing a child. In the new film Heaven is for Real, the parents of Colton Burpo (Connor Corum) feel that pain.

Ben Shapiro Ben Shapiro: Why Conservatives Win Elections and Lose the War

On April 1, 2014, President Barack Obama triumphantly announced that 7.1 million Americans had selected a health insurance plan through Obamacare. In doing so, he nastily labeled his political opposition uncaring and unfeeling.

Terry Jeffrey Terry Jeffrey: 86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers

Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

Austin Bay Austin Bay: Russian Provocateurs Prepare The Ukrainian Battlefield

For the past month, the Russian government, with Vladimir Putin its spotlight propagandist, has repeatedly declared that brutal anti-Russian ethnic violence as a prelude to ethnic-based civil war is imminent in Eastern Ukraine.

Donald Lambro Donald Lambro: President Pinocchios' Nose Is Growing Longer and Longer

President Obama and the Democrats have been peddling some whoppers lately about women in the workforce and Obamacare that are patently untrue, or based on questionable, exaggerated data.

Jacob Sullum Jacob Sullum: Pot, Poker and Prohibitionism: Do Republicans Want To Be the Party of Unprincipled Killjoys?

Mike Lee calls for "a new conservative reform agenda" based on "three basic principles," one of which is federalism. "The biggest reason the federal government makes too many mistakes is that it makes too many decisions," the Republican senator from Utah explained in a speech at the Heritage Foundation last year. "Most of these are decisions the federal government doesn't have to make -- and therefore shouldn't."

Daniel J. Mitchell Daniel J. Mitchell: Tax Day Fantasies

I realize this may be a thought crime by DC standards, but it sure would be nice to eliminate the high tax rates that undermine economic growth and reduce American competitiveness. At the risk of sharing too much information, I fantasize about a world without the internal revenue code.

Ken Connor Ken Connor: Pro-Markets or Pro-Business? It's Time for the GOP to Decide

It's no secret that the Republican Party has for some time been coping with a multifaceted identity crisis. With the election of Barack Obama, the fallout from the 2008 economic collapse, the emergence of the Tea Party, unrest among social conservatives, and a Congressional era marked by deep intra-party animosity, the GOP has been challenged to prove to the American people that it is the party to restore American prosperity and American values.

Michael Schaus Michael Schaus: Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago: More Crime, Less Policing

Killers, thugs and assailants are being allowed to walk the streets of Chicago – all so Rahm Emanuel, some CPD brass, and city leaders can tout “lower” crime statistics… And keep their cushy public positions of trust.

Mike Shedlock Mike Shedlock: Specter of Civil War in Ukraine

Yesterday, the government of Ukraine moved with force against the separatists, evoking a Specter of Civil War.

Political  Calculations Political Calculations: Extra Withholding For Your Obamacare Taxes

To avoid getting hit with a larger tax bill than you might otherwise expect when you file your taxes for 2014, how much extra should you have withheld from each of your paychecks today?

Charles Payne Charles Payne: Happy Tax Day?

As a fan of sequestration and an advocate for much deeper cuts in the federal government, I understand that there will be military spending casualties. Of course, I think the reckless mastery of the current administration and its quest for a Utopian welfare society must make the larger sacrifices as well.

Marvin Olasky Marvin Olasky: How Now Shall We Give? As Joyfully as Zaccheus—Even if Called to Give in a Different Way

If you’re well-off but not wealthy, and you don’t want to force someone else to support you, it may be good to save now, make sure your family is not in need, and at your death give to ministries much of what you’ve saved. The advice in chapter 30 of Proverbs is good—“Give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is needful for me"

Nick Sorrentino Nick Sorrentino: Get the Government Out of the Land Management Business

Who actually owns the land on which the Bundy cattle ranged? Does the Bureau of Land Management? Does the federal government? Does the “public”? Do the Bundys who have worked the land for over a century?

Thomas Sowell Thomas Sowell: Statistical Frauds

The "war on women" political slogan is in fact a war against common sense.

John Hawkins John Hawkins: 15 Examples Of "Liberal Privilege"

Since liberals can't find enough real examples of racism to whine over, they've taken drastic steps to invent imaginary bigotry. One of the ways they've done this, especially on college campuses, is by embracing the concept of "privilege."

Bill Murchison Bill Murchison: Obama and the Politics of Race

So "Racism" once more stalks among us! The Obama administration and its congressional minions are in full-court press style on the topic.
