Which Republican candidate ACTUALLY cut spending as governor? John Stossel and I check their records:

I was just on Fox News Live talking about prediction markets -- my favorite subject! Video and article here:
A group of developers have come up with a new concept called “Augur”, which they hope will make it nearly impossible for government to regulate “prediction markets.”

My latest article. If stores won't sell confederate flag items, is it logically consistent for them to continue selling items positively depicting communist murderers?
All symbols of the Confederacy are rapidly disappearing from stores, websites and the public square in the wake of last week's racially charged shooting in a Charleston, S.C., church, but the purge of some allegedly hateful icons has spared memorabilia linked to some of history's most infamous mass murderers, some critics are charging.

My latest article on global warming:

> The old guidelines also previously criticized free markets, noting that they “helped to widen a gap between rich and poor” without mentioning that they had created prosperity. The new version is less one-sided, noting that “entrepreneurs helped to create a market revolution in production and commerce…” and that “workers’ real wages increased… while the gap between rich and poor grew.”

U. California brands common phrases as "microaggressions":
Phrases such as “America is the land of opportunity” and “America is a melting pot are micro-aggressions that could leave some students feeling discriminated against, according to a new faculty training guide put out by the University of California that one former professor in the system shows how crazy its become.
