Hands Down The Best Editorial Page You Will Find:

The best editorial page you will find is easily Investor's Business Daily.  IBD publishes easy-to-read editorials that show the benefits of Free Markets and Capitalism.

:  Although somewhat better than expected, the 175,000 net jobs created in May continues the historically tepid jobs growth trend that has come to characterize the now four-year-old economic recovery.

Liberty:  President Obama says his domestic surveillance practices are "modest encroachments on privacy." Sure. And, as in Orwell's "1984," "Freedom Is Slavery" and "Ignorance Is Strength."

Subprime:  For years, the administration has denied FHA troubles. But emails reveal it not only knew of them, but also withheld evidence of projected insolvency from Congress.

Hegemony:  Chinese President Xi Jinping begins an Americas tour as tensions rise in Asia, Chinese hackers steal our secrets and the administration invites Beijing's growing navy to participate in exercises off Hawaii.

Privacy:  First we learn the federal government is harassing anti-big-government organizations and spying on journalists. Now we find it collecting all phone records of over 100 million Americans. Is this "limited government"?

War On Terror:  The Army major on trial for murdering 13 at Ft. Hood in 2009 plans to argue that he acted in defense of the Taliban. So much for the administration calling the shootings "workplace violence."

Health Care:  Kathleen Sebelius' claim she can't waive a rule to save a 10-year-old's life is rich, given she was last seen doling out ObamaCare waivers like candy to union groups. Welcome to the world of politicized health care.

Scandal:  IRS profiling of Tea Party groups was endorsed by Democrats who ignored tax-exempt groups funded by billionaire backer George Soros and others who encouraged this assault on democracy and the Constitution.
