According to a new report from The Washington Post, America's corporations have committed "at least" $49.5 billion to the cause of "racial justice" since the George Floyd murder last year riveted our national attention on race.

This amounts to a little over $1,100 for every Black man, woman and child in America.

Or, from another perspective, about $16,500 for every Black household earning $25,000 or less.

But we're not talking about corporate America, despite their deep concern for racial justice, just simply giving black Americans cash. As much as they undoubtedly care about these Black citizens, they would never trust them to just take the money and spend properly.

President Joe Biden describes his $3.5 trillion spending scheme as a way to improve the economy and "build back better."

The intention is a good one, but at its core, this plan isn't so much about growing people's wealth as it is redistributing it. The goal is to make the economy not more prosperous but more equitable -- fairer.

The multitrillion-dollar spending plan offers lower-income and even middle-income people truckloads of free things: health care, dental care, food, pre-K, child care, rental assistance, student loan forgiveness and free community college. And we know that Americans love freebies.

Someone asked me why I write on the US Constitution when the US Supreme Court won't enforce it.

This is why:  Our Declaration of Independence recognizes the self-evident Truth that Rights come from GOD, and that they are unalienable.  Accordingly, there are certain areas of your life which are off-limits to government regulation - you have an "immunity" from governmental regulation of these areas.

But since all Branches of the federal government, and many State governments are refusing to recognize our Rights, it falls on us to vigorously assert our Rights, defend them, and insist on them.  You have no lawful, moral, or religious duty to submit to a government when it violates our Constitution and which is seeking to take from you the Rights which the Creator God gave you.  No human has the right to take from you a Right which God gave you.

After the attacks on our nation on Sept. 11, 2001, President George W. Bush took to the airways to address the American people.

Speaking to a nation in shock, he cast what had occurred in the framework of good and evil.

"Today, our nation saw evil," the president said.

And he offered up solace in Psalm 23, "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for you are with me."

The housing market is hot, hot, hot right now, and home prices continue to soar in many markets to their highest prices ever. Since it doesn't cost a real estate agent ten times as much to sell a million dollar home than a $100,000 home, one would expect that the percentage fees for real estate agents would be falling. They aren't. Why?

I started investigating the fees charged by the real estate industry some 15 years ago when I was an economics writer for the Wall Street Journal. What I discovered is that the real estate agents had created a de facto legal cartel that often rips off buyers and sellers of homes. The excess cost to home buyers and sellers from this industry cartel is typically more than $10,000 for homes with a price above $500,000.

President Joe Biden was right in his speech to the nation about our withdrawal from Afghanistan, that a long legacy of American involvement there preceded him.

But across the board, in domestic as well as foreign policy, any new president inherits realities that precede him. The issue confronting every president is what principles and policies will he put in place to deal with these existing realities that will define his administration.

Most clear now is that America's withdrawal from Afghanistan is surrounded by a perception of confusion, weakness and humiliation.

Milton Friedman used to quip that, in Washington, if a government program is working, Congress says we need to spend more money on it. And if a government program is failing, Congress concludes we are not spending enough money on it.

We are seeing that in spades with the unemployment insurance program that has been looted by fraud for nearly 18 months and has become a poster child of everything gone wrong in government (already) under President Joe Biden.

CNBC recently investigated the ransacking of the unemployment insurance program and was told by Michele Evermore, a senior policy adviser for unemployment insurance: "What we're seeing now is really terrifying. Fraud has gotten so big." She wasn't exaggerating.
