CEO for POTUS? By Tim Walker Americans no longer trust politicians—as if they ever did. In April of 2015, the Pew Research Center released the results of a poll, which stated that fewer than one in four Americans trusted the federal government “most of the time.” Similarly, a 2014 Harvard Institute of Politics survey revealed […]

Dayton’s version of the skyscraper curse By Mark Luedtke The skyscraper curse notes that, whenever a new, tallest building is built in a region, an economic bust generally follows. Mises Institute scholar Mark Thornton explains, “Record-setting skyscrapers are a prominent example of how distortions in interest rates (i.e., actual rates below ‘natural’ rates) alter the […]

Cover-up at City Hall Dayton’s rulers pay outgoing city manager for silence Mark Luedtke Normally when rulers cover up their crimes, they try to keep the cover-up secret too, but in the case of the mysterious resignation, or maybe firing, of Dayton City Manager Warren Price after only eight months on the job, the cover-up […]

It takes 4,600 young lives each year, and more teenagers—more than those who die from cancer, heart […]

Buch gets a tip By Jim Bucher Boy, did I get an earful, or rather an inbox full of responses from my column on tipping in the Aug. 18 edition of Dayton City Paper. It seems I touched a nerve or two. Most people were in agreement that service industry workers survive on tips, but […]

Don’t blame China Blame the Fed for the stock market crash Mark Luedtke On Monday, Aug. 24, the Dow plummeted 1,100 points at opening before closing down over 500 points. That followed a big loss the previous Friday, and losses continued on Tuesday. Trillions of dollars of phony wealth were wiped out in three days, […]

Go online. Get screwed. Hacking Ashley Madison By Tim Walker   fi-del-i-ty (n) – faithfulness to a person, cause, or belief, demonstrated by continuing loyalty and support.

Hurt by the bell By Marsha Bonhart I am not an abusive parent. However, yes, I admit to using what could be considered unethical tactics to encourage my younger son to get out of bed on school mornings. Despite fairly strict scheduled bed times, he just didn’t seem to get enough sleep. The 7-minute ride […]

Estrogen: the enemy among us By Rocco Castellano A while ago, I wrote a column called “Soy Meets World” that was basically a wild rant against the pieces of shit that allow this so-called nutrient to invade every crevice of our food supply.

FLOC Anti-bullying rally kicks off By Jim Bucher I remember being a scrawny kid; in grade school, I was pushed around by guys bigger than me, which in most cases was just about everybody. Bullying was a part of school life. Now, it wasn’t all the time, but occasionally it was worrisome. That part of […]

Saved from democracy Dayton’s rulers save Greek Festival and DAI’s Oktoberfest By Mark Luedtke Churchill once said, “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” Americans have been brainwashed into believing that.

Fascism is socialism Mark Luedtke   You have to give leftists credit. They masterfully muddy, smear, change and destroy the definition of words. In the most obvious recent instance, “gay” used to mean happy. Now it means homosexual. How they changed that meaning, I’ll never know. Possibly the first and most fundamental was the change […]
