Cruising the Web

Glenn Reynolds links to a story advising people on "What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast." Reynolds comments, "Personally, I blog." Ditto here. And since I'm a teacher, my breakfast is much later during the summer so that explains why my blogging is also appearing at a later time.

The NEA is facing its own pension crisis.

William A. Jacobson wonders what would have been the response if Mitt Romney had talked about Palestinians the way that Obama spoke about Pennsylvanians.

Hmm. A federal court has ruled that political appointees in Obama's Department of Justice interfered with the prosecution of the New Black Panthers.

In California, the state's funding of mental health has been cratering. But instead of spending money to treat the severely mental ill, money is being spent on "wellness" programs such as teen horseback riding lessons or yoga classes. Sure. That makes sense.

As there is all sorts of criticisms of Romney's impolitic comments on the London Olympics, let's not forget all the gaffes that Obama has made on Poland. Such a history explains why Poland was one of the three countries on Romney's overseas trip.

Contrary to Obama's claims that "General Motors is back on top" due to Obama's policies, the company is in a slump and it's experiencing extreme upheaval among its top management. Mickey Kaus writes that "it's like the last act of Titus Andronicus over at GM corporate headquarters." Ouch.

The joke Obama told that sums up his presidency.

Milton Friedman would have been 100 years old today. Stephen Moore pays tribute to "The Man Who Saved Capitalism." If only the Obama administration could learn that you can't create prosperity by robbing Peter to pay Paul.

How the Obama administration has created a climate that stifles small business.
