Mark Zuckerberg Is Right About Free Speech And The Web

by Niall Fergusonvia Boston Globe
Monday, October 21, 2019

An unusual thing happened last week. Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive of Facebook, gave a speech with which I mostly agreed. Regular readers of this column will know that I have frequently criticized Zuckerberg. My book “The Square and the Tower” contains some harsh words about his company — and particularly its conduct in the fateful election year of 2016.

Who Pays More Taxes

by John H. Cochranevia Grumpy Economist
Friday, October 18, 2019

A retired guy and a carpenter walk in to a bar, and they each order a beer. When they pay, the fashionable progressive economist asks them, "how much tax did you pay today on the money you got to buy that beer?" The carpenter answers, "Well, I just got my paycheck today. So, that's 30% federal income tax, 5% state income tax, 15% social security and other payroll taxes." The retiree says, "I took the money out of my bank account at the ATM on the way over. There isn't a tax on taking money out of banks so I didn't pay any taxes today."

Why Do They Hate Him So?

by Victor Davis Hansonvia American Greatness
Sunday, October 20, 2019

Democrats, NeverTrump Republicans, left-liberal celebrities, journalists, and academics all revile Donald Trump because he is trying and often succeeding to restore a conservative America at a time when his opponents thought that the mere idea was not just impossible but unhinged.

Democrats Foolishly Pine For A New New Deal

by David Davenportvia The Washington Examiner
Friday, October 18, 2019

If you are a Republican running for political office, it’s a safe bet that you seek to identify with conservatives’ last great president, Ronald Reagan. Increasingly, the Democrats’ alternative is not so much a person, since he has faded from memory, but a program: Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal of the 1930s. With their poor understanding of American history, young people fail to realize that what they really want is a new New Deal, and what candidates such as Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are prepared to offer them is best understood as a further expansion of the original New Deal.

Unalienable Rights, Reconstruction, And Constitutional Continuity

by Peter Berkowitzvia Real Clear Politics
Saturday, October 19, 2019

Perhaps at no time since the decade or so preceding the Civil War have debates about America’s commitment to fundamental rights been as rancorous as today. Yet at no time have fundamental rights in the United States been enjoyed by so wide and diverse a population as they are now. The contrast in contemporary America between the public rancor and the political reality reflects an estrangement from history and an accompanying loss of perspective.

Susan Houseman On Manufacturing

by Russell Robertsvia EconTalk
Monday, October 21, 2019

Economist Susan Houseman of the Upjohn Institute for Employment Research talks about the manufacturing sector with EconTalk host Russ Roberts. Houseman argues that the data surrounding both manufacturing output and employment have been misunderstood and misinterpreted. In particular, she argues that conclusions about the growth of manufacturing are driven overwhelmingly by computer production while the rest of manufacturing has been stagnant. She also argues that productivity has a small role in reducing manufacturing employment. Trade has been the main cause of employment reductions. These claims go against the standard narratives most economists have been telling for the last 20 years.

Marc A. Thiessen writes: With three polls showing her in the lead, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) may soon eclipse former vice president Joe Biden as the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination. That’s great news for Republicans, because Warren has a problem: The central message of her campaign is that the economy is working for the very wealthy but it is not working for ordinary Americans. Unfortunately for her, ordinary Americans disagree.

President Trump held a tremendous rally Thursday night in Dallas, Texas. Not surprisingly, there was no violence after the rally ended. I suspect the leftists of Antifa had second thoughts about showing their masked faces in Texas! Trump hit the left hard. He warned that the Democrats want to appoint far-left judges to “shred the Constitution.” He’s absolutely right.

‘Liberal Bias’ Debate On College Campuses May Encourage Open Discourse

quoting Timothy Garton Ashvia The Daily Orange
Monday, October 21, 2019

For over a year, students on campus were working to get a Young Americans for Freedom chapter approved. The Young Americans for Freedom is a nationwide political organization of college students that is based on conservative values. Back in February, the university rejected the proposed YAF chapter for its lack of a faculty adviser and its requirement that members agree to the “superiority” of the U.S. constitution. Some students have alleged that liberal bias directly impacted the group’s efforts to become a recognized student organization, which it now is.

There’s A Stark Reason Why America’s 1.8 Million Long-Haul Truck Drivers Can’t Strike

quoting Thomas Gale Moorevia Business Insider

Tens of thousands of truck drivers were scheming earlier this year to strike. Such a work stoppage could have tremendous implications – some 71% of freight is moved by long-haul trucks, including groceries, manufactured goods, and even money. “We’re not all fat slobs, and we don’t all do the stereotypical trucker things,” Will Kling, a truck driver based in Reno, Nevada, told Business Insider last year. “Trucking has been forgotten.”

Impeachment Wire: The Latest On The Effort To Impeach President Trump

I remain adamant in my contention that the present Democratic impeachment effort represents a tremendous overreach — and I feel buttressed in making that contention by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement this week that she will not hold a House-wide vote soon to formally kick off impeachment proceedings — but national polling does appear now to be solidly (if still relatively narrowly) in favor of impeachment.
