Experience is a costly teacher. What could have been a life-ending experience for this New Jersey couple, ended up being a traumatic but life-changing event.
The incident involved two suspects (one of them armed) who robbed a man, broke in his and his fiancée’s apartment, sexually assaulted his fiancée, and beat him unconscious before the two suspects fled the scene after the woman was able to call 911.
Before the incident, the couple felt safe with surveillance cameras on the apartment Read more [...]
Everybody knows blondes aren’t as smart as people with other hair colors. Because that’s just the way blondes are, they should be held to a lesser academic standard so that they can get into high demand college programs and make good grades.
OK, I don’t actually believe that, and I don’t believe in the stereotypical blonde. (Well, maybe I sort of do.) Whatever the case, just because blondes have that stereotype doesn’t mean they should get special privileges in order to advance in school Read more [...]
By now, we should all be used to it. Everything is racism. Everything is about race. In the most recent confirmation of this dubious truth, the NAACP is claiming that the city of Detroit is shutting off the water of racial minorities because of their race.
Why does the NAACP think this, aside from their institutional need to legitimize their own existence by creating a world of racial motivations? They claim that Detroit is not shutting off water to some corporations in Detroit (all owned by white Read more [...]
The Affordable Care Act, known “affectionately” as Obamacare, rests very precariously on a few key contingencies. For one, a large number of people have to enroll in order to make it financially solvent. Second, in order for these people to enroll, they rely on federal subsidies (tax credits) to make Obamacare affordable to them. If it’s not affordable, they aren’t required by law to enroll. If they don’t enroll, the whole system could fall apart.
Now a federal appeals court could completely Read more [...]
When your liberal friend tells you that Israel is the bad guy in the Arab-Israeli conflict... show them this video.

Uh-Oh. Secretary of State John Kerry seemed none to pleased with CNN"s Candy Crowley after she asked a rather inane questions about the war between Israel and the Palestinians.
Secretary of State John Kerry:
“The fact is that Hamas uses civilians as shield. And the fire from a home, and draw the fire into a home, precisely to elicit the kind of question you just asked.” Read more [...]
There's a lot of talk about optics in politics, and generally speaking, I am wildly opposed to the notion of optics. Optics refers to how one is viewed by the general public, how one's actions are perceived. Optics are, in essence, a manipulation of perception. In my opinion, the top priority on a politician's mind should not be optics, but actions. Actions--if they are driven by noble intent--should speak for themselves. Action should not require extra manufacturing. However, there is something Read more [...]
There’s a restaurant in East Tennessee called Shiloh Brew and Chew. While it sounds like a place to drink and smoke, the “brew” is for coffee, and the “chew” is for food. The owner admits it was probably not the greatest decision on her part to give her business a misleading name.
But she recently made another decision that is perhaps making up for any lost business. After reading about a restaurant in North Carolina that got robbed at gunpoint just two days after posting a gun-free Read more [...]
California’s drought has lead to water restrictions being imposed on residents. You’d think that if you’re in the middle of a drought, and people are trying to conserve water, things like an aesthetically pleasing lawn would be last on the list of things to worry about. You’d be most concerned with having water to drink. And you’d do bigger loads of laundry and take shorter, perhaps less frequent showers.
That’s exactly what one California couple was doing in trying to conserve water. Read more [...]
A new dating site, SingldOut, is using DNA samples from subscribers to create “genetic matches”:
The two markers tested for are the serotonin uptake controller, which is involved in how people handle positive and negative emotions. The second marker tested for relates to the genes influencing the person's immune system.
Within one week, the test results appear on the user's profile, where they can be compared with the results of other users.
According to research by Instant Chemistry, Read more [...]
Here in the US, any mention of the persecution of Christians will meet with guffaws, no matter how systematically traditional Christianity actually is persecuted by this culture. Christians, especially white male Christians, have nothing to complain about according to leftists. We have been the privileged class in the US for years. But that’s been changing for some time here in the States. And around the world, dire Christian persecution has long been a reality.
Right now, ISIS is going around Read more [...]
