Weekly Wrap-Up

An interesting take on inflation from Lewis Lehrman of The Lehrman Institute. He documents what most of us are seeing in our own lives...

Since the beginning of 2009, oil prices have almost tripled, gasoline prices are up about 50 percent, and basic food prices, such as corn, soybeans, and wheat, have almost doubled around the world. Cotton and copper prices have reached all time highs; major rises in sugar, spice, and wheat prices have been creating food riots in poor countries, where basic goods inflation is rampant.

What’s the cause of this inflation – and who benefits? You’ll want to read it to find out.

Is the Obama Administration doing anything to make the situation better? Nope – just the opposite. He’s wrecking our economy with wrongheaded energy policies...

... he’s snubbing our allies in Latin America...

... and rather than focus on Iraq or Afghanistan, or what exactly the U.S. should be doing about uprisings in the Middle East, the Obama Administration is making “diversity” in America’s military a top priority.

Maybe it is best if he just sticks to golfing and March Madness...

But have we ever seen a President more disengaged and seemingly unprepared to handle the job than this one?

Even his bracket picks are wimpy. As the Times points out, Obama is “predictably avoiding controversy by choosing the four top seeds for the Final Four.”

Let’s hope Obama’s lack of leadership isn’t contagious. Now more than ever Gov. Cuomo needs to get tough with the public sector labor bosses – which makes this quite troubling...

Unfortunately Attorney General Eric Holder has been all too active in pushing his racially-charged agenda. The absurdity in Dayton, OH – where now F is a passing score for police recruits – threatens to hit New York's firefighters as well.

There’s outrage across the board. As the times notes:

“Even Dayton NAACP President Derrick Foward objected. ‘The NAACP does not support individuals failing a test and then having the opportunity to be gainfully employed,’ he said. ‘If you lower the score for any group of people, you’re not getting the best qualified people for the job.’”

The DOJ is also going after New Orleans for being racist – with New Orleans’ blessing. Wondrous things can happen when liberals join forces with liberals. The problems found in New Orleans by Holder’s crew seem to include, among other things, that police aren’t shooting at enough whites.

The Conservative Party has been saying for some time now that Eric Holder has to go.

What do you think? Should he be fired? Give your opinion today in the new Weekly Poll. And have a great weekend!
