Hillary’s question: not if, but how

on February 6, 2014, 6:59 AM / in Opinion

By Matt Bai, Yahoo News Let’s be clear about this much: no matter what the soothsayers on cable TV tell you, Hillary Clinton is no more likely to clear the Democratic field and avoid a primary in 2016 than Dennis Rodman is to become her secretary of state. Walter Mondale couldn’t pull that off in 1984, and Al Gore couldn’t […]

The CBO on Obama’s bifurcated economy.

TN Senate unfairly targets consumer legal funding

on February 4, 2014, 7:30 AM / in News, Opinion, State News

Last month, with little fanfare and even less public debate, the Tennessee Senate voted to shut down an industry and service that has successfully served Tennesseans without incident for over 13 years. The legislation would implement suffocating price controls onto my business of consumer legal funding. Not only will my small business be forced to shut its doors if this […]

Everyone, no matter who they are, has a set of core beliefs that guide them in their lives. You might say these beliefs define them, as they are the guiding principles each person relies upon to make decisions in their daily lives.
