Watch as CNN's Marc Lamont Hill and the Blaze's Tara Setmayer argue over whether or not saggy pants play a part in racial profiling.
“It suggests that somehow there’s a connection between black male profiling and our pants being sagging. Before black people pulled their pants down, they were still being locked up…If we continue to tell young black men that they can behave or dress or otherwise demonstrate their way out of police oppression or police abuse, then we’re blaming the victim," Read more [...]
Five Things Labor Unions Do to Celebrate Labor Day
For many Americans, Labor Day means one last long weekend to end the summer. But the U.S. Department of Labor describes the holiday as “a creation of the labor movement,” meaning labor unions.
So how would organized labor celebrate?
1. Make union organizing a civil right. Democrats Georgia Rep. John Lewis and Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison have introduced a bill that would that would do just that. The congressmen argue that the current National Read more [...]
Earlier this year a terrorist group of Islamic extremists gained world notoriety when they kidnapped nearly 300 Christian girls in northern Nigeria. Most the girls are still not accounted for, but reports claimed that they were being forced to convert to Islam and marry a Muslim man or face severe torture and death.
Over the past several years, Boko Haram has been systematically carrying out genocidal attacks against Nigeria’s Christians in the northern part of the country. Hundreds, probably Read more [...]

"I think a lot of self-importance is a product of fear. And fear, living in sort of an un-self-examined fear-based life, tends to lead to narcissism and self-importance." - Moby
Double standards. I've written about double standards many times, but I repeat myself because the most pernicious issues are often the simplest. We are all capable of creating our own double standards, and abiding by them as well. It is not a one sided issue, the use of the double standard. That being said, the left has Read more [...]
They tell us that “the law is the law.” If a cop spots you texting while driving, and if that’s something that’s illegal in your state, you get pulled over and you’re given a ticket. They’ll tell you it’s irresponsible and could cause a car accident. It’s true. It is terribly irresponsible and unsafe.
But police do it all the time. They’ll justify it by saying they’re responding to “official police business.” So, these paragons of moral and legal uprightness; these models Read more [...]
Moms Demand Action is that gun control group allegedly comprised of mothers who think that the best way to protect yourself from an armed criminal is to take away everyone’s guns (except from the police and the government) and to rely on the police in case you’re being murdered or raped.
While they might win the emotions of some Hollywood do-gooders or liberal politicians, they haven’t had much of an effect on real moms. In fact, quite the contrary. According to Breitbart, women concealed Read more [...]
Well, this is a little embarrassing.
Harry Reid graduated from Southern Utah University and for a while now his name has graced one of their buildings... but it won't for much longer.
Several months ago, some concerned citizens met with Wyatt, calling for the removal of Reid’s name from the center.
“We had people step up and pledge money towards removing his name. In five days I received pledges totaling $40,000 – in just five days,” said Cedar City Councilman Paul Cozzens.
The Read more [...]
Florida Conservative Javier Manjarres was on Newsmax TV to debate Rick Ungar of Forbes about the image that President Obama projects to the rest of the world with all of his golfing vacations. During the conversation Manjarres said that the President “project weakness” and that Obama is “not a true respectable President.”
Obama “Projects Weakness,” And “Not A True Respectable President”
“We haven’t had true leadership in the White House since President George W Read more [...]
According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, a straw man is "a weak or imaginary argument or opponent that is set up to be easily defeated." This is probably one of the most important words to remember, especially if you have friends that are liberals. I see straw man arguments every day. As the definition implies, straw men are used when one doesn't have the wherewithal to argue the actual point of an issue. Straw men look, and should very similar to actual arguments, but they are designed with Read more [...]
The absolute worst thing liberals can think of is a world where it’s not allowed to murder an unborn child. I mean, what kind of barbaric culture would that be like?
Fortunately, we live in the land of the free where everyone, regardless of age, has the right to life and liberty. And fortunately, the courts have said that killing an unborn child isn’t murder, per se, so that means it’s not murder, because the court system defines our morals for us. Unless of course they decide something Read more [...]
You talk to most liberals, and they’ll tell you that guns and alcohol just don’t mix. Perhaps they don’t. But I don’t think that allowing armed patrons to enter a bar or a restaurant that serves alcohol would necessarily lead to a blood bath, which is what liberals want to happen so they can justify more gun control.
In Louisiana, you can get a strawberry daiquiri – an alcoholic beverage – in a drive-thru. You can legally drink and drive as long as the alcoholic drink is a frozen one.
But Read more [...]
Recently, Obama made it clear that he and his administration have no strategy for dealing with ISIS. Anyone who’s been paying attention could have told you that. But it was nice for Obama to make it explicit:
[Obama’s] remarks came after days of heated debate inside the top levels of his own national security bureaucracy about how, where, and whether to strike ISIS in Syria. But those deliberations—which included a bleak intelligence assessment of America's potential allies in Syria—failed Read more [...]
