COMMENTARY BY JOHN STOSSEL

  • Dr. Capitalism By John Stossel

    For years, my scientist brother Tom was the nonpolitical Stossel.    

  • Disobey! By John Stossel

    Charles Murray, already controversial for writing books on how welfare hurts the poor, on ethnic differences in IQ and on (less controversial, but my favorite) happiness and good government, has written a new book that argues that it's time for civil disobedience. Government has become so oppressive, constantly restricting us with new regulations, that our only hope is for some of us to refuse to cooperate.   

  • Hillary's Armor By John Stossel

    "This vast right-wing conspiracy," Hillary Clinton said, "has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced." That was the "feminist" first lady's response when her husband was accused of having sex with a 21-year-old.   

  • What Creates Jobs by John Stossel

    I took a camera to Times Square this week and asked people, "What creates jobs?" Most had no answer.

  • The Next President By John Stossel

    It's not smart to get too enthusiastic about any politician. I've been disappointed often. I believed Bill Clinton when he said, "the era of big government is over." I thought George W. Bush was a "small government guy." And Barack Obama ...   

  • Freedom of and from Religion by John Stossel

    Religious oppression was one reason many of our ancestors came to America. They wanted to escape rulers who demanded that everyone worship their way. In Ireland, Catholics couldn't vote or own a gun.

  • A Right to Discriminate by John Stossel

    Bake me a cake, or go to jail!

  • The Next Bubble By John Stossel

    They're doing it again!

    When the last housing bubble burst, politicians blamed "greedy banks." They said mortgage companies lent money recklessly, making loans to people with dubious credit, for down payments as low as 3 percent.

  • Gentrify! by John Stossel

    No matter what you do, modern liberals will tell you you're wrong.

  • Chicago Fray By John Stossel

    Rahm Emanuel, current mayor of my old hometown, Chicago, is not a gentle soul. But he's smarter than his big-spending predecessor, Richard M. Daley, and the union pawn, Jesus "Chuy" Garcia, who becomes the new mayor if he beats Emanuel in a run-off election April 7.

    Emanuel was the tough Obama chief of staff who reportedly stabbed a table with a steak knife as he listed political enemies.
