Rip-Off – American College Tuition

Rip-Off – American College Tuition

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Why does a college education cost so much? Tuition has increased far higher and at a faster rate than inflation. Graduating with massive college loan debt not only has a negative impact on students and on their families, but it also harms society. A new book by Paul Streitz, [...]

Unemployment Benefits: The Government Gets What It Pays For

Have the perverse incentives been proved? ROBERT P. MURPHY, THE FREEMAN Just about everyone agrees that incentives affect behavior, but economists really mean it. That’s because economists take the logic of incentives further than most other people are willing to. Such analysis often reveals [...]

The Solution to Too Many Girls on Campus?

The Solution to Too Many Girls on Campus?

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Yesterday I told you how unhappy college students are because of the new ratio of males to females. Colleges used to have a majority of guys, but today, the average is 57% female and often only 43% male. This new ratio has dramatically restructured social relationships on [...]

The Right to Say No

The Right to Say No

BY ALAN CARUBA Something very unpleasant is occurring in America. Those who have a strong religious faith are being denied the right to say “no” based on its teachings and values. This is particularly true these days as homosexuals, barely three percent of the population, demand that they be [...]

NSA Spying: a greater threat than ISIS

NSA Spying: a greater threat than ISIS

American People Must Tell Politicians No More War

American People Must Tell Politicians No More War

DOUG BANDOW, CATO INSTITUTE American foreign policy is a bipartisan failure. The U.S. must intervene everywhere all the time, irrespective of consequences? No matter how disastrous the outcome, promiscuous interventionists insist that the idea was sound. Any problems obviously result from [...]

The New Math on Campus

The New Math on Campus

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY The New York Times published a provocative news story called “The New Math on Campus.” No, it’s not about the failure of Common Core to teach arithmetic, it’s about the dramatic ratio of males to females on most college campuses today. Long ago when I went to college, [...]

BY PAUL DRIESSEN ~Climate Chaos, Inc. and media allies ban news and books on climate realism~ Some 200 nations may sign a “modest” Kyoto II climate treaty, say December 2014 media reports from Lima, Peru. But will developing nations agree to stop using coal to generate electricity? No. [...]

The Costly Asylum Racket

The Costly Asylum Racket

Too Many Lies, Too Much of the Time

Too Many Lies, Too Much of the Time

BY ALAN CARUBA "He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world's believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and [...]
