It should then be obvious that the banks in this country are neither speedy nor generous in giving loans to the beginning or small business entrepreneur.

In most cases, these small business owners need much more than the… Continue

She was 6 years old and had only been told by her mother that she was going to be attending a new school that day and 'had better behave.' Little did she know that she would be bombarded with jeers and even death threats, and that she would…

Yesterday, the day after President Obama signed his stimulus bill into law, the NY Post ran a cartoon depicting the bill's "author" as a dead monkey, covered in blood after being shot by police. You can see the image by clicking on the link below.
