Here’s what you have to go through to become a hair braider in some states

If our leaders really wanted to create jobs, they could start by keeping government from crushing small business ventures. In yet another example of bloated regulation, an Institute for Justice report has found that burdensome licensing laws require hair braiders to spend as much as 2,100 hours in training and thousands of dollars on tuition. These barriers prevent entrepreneurs, many of whom are lower-income, from working at a job that many learned in childhood and have practiced for years. Via the Washington Free Beacon: The report also finds that these requirements kill jobs and prevent hair braiders with less capital from entering the job ...

Actress Stacey Dash says ‘That’s so untrue’ of this Democrat’s ridiculous anti-gun comment

Actress-turned-conservative-political-commentator Stacey Dash in an interview with Townhall’s Cortney O’Brien reveals what she thinks of DNC platform committee member Bonnie Schaefer’s recent comment “Nothing is ever solved when you have a gun in your hand except the worst-possible scenario” – and she didn’t hold back! (Fast forward to 2:47 minutes in for the excerpt.) “That’s so untrue,” said Dash. “Things are definitely solved – what got solved for me was a man who was stalking me for three years, who had been beating me for five years, came into my house and tried to kill me and my son and – because I had a gun – I ...

Veterans Affairs secretary: ‘When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line or what’s important?’

Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald Monday apparently downplayed the severity of the wait-list scandals that have plagued the department, left veterans without timely care and, in some cases, been the difference between life and death – a metric, the secretary implied, that should be trashed altogether. The Washington Examiner has the details: "When you got to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? Or what's important? What's important is, what's your satisfaction with the experience?" McDonald said Monday during a Christian Science Monitor breakfast with reporters. "And what I would like to move to, eventually, is ...

“What’s on your mind?” It’s the question that appears on the status update of every personal Facebook account and is written in large letters atop the famous “Facebook wall” at the company headquarters in Menlo Park, California – and it’s not a question Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin shied away from answering Wednesday when she and other conservative leaders from across the country met with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to discuss recent allegations the social-networking site has been suppressing politically conservative news and propping up a homogeneous workplace culture that favors its more liberal members. “W...

Wow — You’ll never believe what Sen. Harry Reid said 11 years ago – we even agree!

Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is in hot water for apparently flip-flopping regarding his position on the role of the U.S. Senate in considering presidential nominees. "The duties of the United States Senate are set out in the Constitution of the United States. Nowhere in that document does it say the Senate has a duty to give presidential nominees a vote; it says appointments shall be made 'with the advice and consent of the Senate.' That's very different than saying that every nominee receives a vote," Sen. Reid said May of 2005 on the Senate Floor, C-SPAN footage shows. The U.S. Senate minority leader has been arguing the Senate is bound to ...

Coalition asking lawmakers to implement special budget that would cap, track costly federal regulations

Numerous free-market groups together are leading the charge to urge Congress to include in its 2017 budget a special regulatory budget that would cap, track and disclose pricey federal regulatory laws. The Washington Times has the details: Big government is getting big criticism.

Columnist: Obama’s proposed budget would result in a national debt that by 2026 is 77 percent of GDP

Investor’s Business Daily Columnist John Merline breaks down the economic impact of President Obama’s proposed last budget as commander in chief noting it will increase taxes and balloon spending so much so that our debt will be more than three-fourths of our gross domestic product.
