State Department Spends $400,000 on Fiberglass Camel Sculpture

Jesus said that it was easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven. An artist created a sculpture of a life-size camel staring at the eye of a large needle. His work is called “Camel Contemplating Needle.” In a sort of twist of irony, the “rich” State Department is planning on buying it for $400,000 to be placed in the new U.S. embassy being constructed in Islamabad, Pakistan: The work, by...

Did the EU Bail Out the US in December?

It’s Wednesday. So it’s time for more bad news. If you’ve been paying attention, you will have already noticed that the United States is headed toward a cliff of imminent destruction at astonishing speeds. Our financial situation is dire, our political situation is dismal, our international situation is tenuous, and our cultural situation is pathetic. It’s sad. I didn’t think my generation would live to see this, but it looks like...

Liberal Asks: Why Do Republicans Love Work So Much?

Satire can be written no better than by those actually being serious. I often come across articles by liberal pundits that are deadly serious, but come across as satire. This is because so much of what the Left believes is utter farce. When someone writes about something ridiculous the only result is comedy. In a new article for Politico, professor of leisure studies (yeah) Benjamin Kline Hunnicutt laments the Republican work ethic....

Youth Misery Index the Worst Under Obama

According to the Youth Misery Index (apparently that’s a thing), Obama is the worst president ever as far as the well-being of young people is concerned. The Youth Misery Index has risen over 18.1 percent since Obama took office. That’s more than under any other president. An article in the College Fix uncovers the cruel irony of our hippest hipster president being the absolute worst president for hipsters. Bummer. The Youth Misery...

Debtors Prison Back in Vogue

I once languished in debtors prison. When I was about seventeen, I got strep throat something terrible. It got so bad I couldn’t swallow my own saliva without great pain. I was lying in my bed trying to recuperate when my father came to my door: “Son, the police are here for you.” “Huh? What for?” I croaked out. “I don’t know. They say they have a bench warrant for your arrest.” “Okay.” I got up and put on some clothes. Two officers...

New Report Exposes Ludicrous Items in Federal Budget

Do you remember that scene from The Jerk, when Steve Martin’s idiotic character is collecting the “bare bones” items he “needs”? “This ashtray is all I need! And this paddle game. This ashtray and this paddle game. That’s all I need! …” That’s sort of what the federal budget talks must have looked like. A new report on the federal budget exposes the embarrassing excesses of our comedically unrestrained civil government: Among the...
