Earth Day’s anti-fossil fuel focus could plunge millions into green energy poverty

By Marita Noon at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

Friday, April 22, marked the 47th Earth Day. You may think it is all about planting trees and cleaning up neighborhoods. But this year’s anniversary was closer to its radical roots than, perhaps, any other since its founding in 1970. Considered the birth of the environmental movement, the first Earth Day took place during the height of America’s counterculture era. According to EarthDay.org, it gave voice to an “emerging consciousness, channeling the energy of the anti-war protest movement and putting environmental concerns on the front page.”

We did need to clean up our act. At that time “littering” wasn’t part of our vocabulary, The air in the

Congress should settle Puerto Rico debt restructuring to avert taxpayer bailout of creditors

Share

By Robert Romano at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

Will the House-proposed Puerto Rico legislation, H.R. 4900, restructure the territory’s $72 billion of debt, or will it lead to a bailout of creditors?

Under the bill, the financial oversight board certainly has the authority to restructure Puerto Rico’s debts — in which creditors would take a haircut — but in its current form it is not mandatory they do so when no other arrangement can be reached, nor are secured creditors explicitly given preference of being paid first over unsecured creditors.

Yes, the board created might restructure the debt equitably, but then again it might not.

All the bill provides is to review Puerto Rico’s voluntary arrangements

Leah Jessen is a news reporter for The Daily Signal and graduate of The Heritage Foundation’s Young Leaders Program.

A Minnesota commuter rail line is costing taxpayers approximately $22 per passenger, per trip.

“When you’re subsidizing about 80 percent of every trip on the line, it’s a really big fiscal disaster,” Annette Meeks, Freedom Foundation of Minnesota CEO, told The Daily Signal.

The Minnesota Northstar rail opened for service in the fall of 2009, providing commute by train down the 40-mile stretch of railway that runs from downtown Minneapolis to Big Lake.

Whether you are a presidential candidate or someone seeking an office at the local level, there is an issue that resonates with people across the nation, a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulatory overreach destroys local control of zoning laws.

President Obama’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing regulation conditions more than $3 billion of community development block grants on redrawing maps to override local zoning laws using the warped logic that lack of racial and income diversity is proof in itself of racial discrimination.

This is the great sleeper issue of 2016.

College Students Do Not Get Their Money’s Worth

Share

by Phyllis Schlafly at Eagle Forum

 

 

When I worked my way through college in the 1940s, tuition was $200 to $250 a year. My children’s tuition was $2,000 to $2,500 a year, and my grandchildren’s college education each cost $20,000 to $40,000 a year for tuition alone.

College is so expensive that only about half of today’s college graduates think their degree was worth the cost, according to a survey by Gallup-Purdue. The more debt the student incurs, the more likely he is to doubt that he received his money’s worth.

The total amount of student debt in the United States is a staggering $1.2 trillion, which exceeds even the annual discretionary spending of the entire United
