"Get ready for a media blitz about how cruel it is to slaughter horses. The HSUS, PETA and other left wing groups never mention the flip side: Abandoned horses starving everywhere in the United States. Horses were raised for years for meat in this country in all of the Western states."

"In regard to Glenn Hamer's commentary on employers' frustrations with government, we must remember the essential value of regulation in our economy. Without it, the water we drink and the air we breathe would be noxious. Snake oils would be promoted as miracle cures. The products we buy in good faith might blow up in our faces. Of course, outdated regulations should be removed, but critics of regulation want more than that: They want to undermine the protections critical to our community. Right now, the major block to job creation is not excessive regulation, but lack of demand for the products of businesses - large and small."

"So Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) is retiring. All I can say is ‘good riddance to bad rubbish.' He and Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Senator Chuck Schummer (D-N.Y.) forced Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae into the home loan collapse that caused the recession. The Democrat's Community Reinvestment Act allowed low-income buyers to purchase homes in the hundreds of thousands of dollars with no down payment, no credit and no job history. That's why they can just walk away from their home loans because they had no equity in the house to begin with."
