Why is it Controversial to Tell the Truth About ISIS Operatives Embedded Among Refugees?

“The truth has become an insult.” – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi The truth used to be a vaunted thing. Thomas Huxley said that we must learn what is true in order to do what is right. Christ himself said the truth shall set you free. Truth has become a relic; our culture pawned it to buy safe spaces and shiny lies. As a result of our being deprived of such an essential social nutrient, we’ve developed a sort of anaphylactic response when exposed to hard reality. The latest hard truth to which we’ve Read more […]

Income Inequality or Income Inequity? The Difference a Word Can Make

I have been noticing a trend in recent discussions of income inequality. Commentators have started replacing income inequality with income inequity. At first, I thought this subtle shift was a result of ignorance. In our word-impoverished culture, the right words get swapped for incorrect similar-sounding ones all the time (e.g., “disinterested” for “uninterested”). But as this trend toward using income inequity grows, I begin to think the subtle shift in language is intentional. There Read more […]

Obama Wants To Make College “Free!”

“Two years of college will become as free and universal as high school is today.” – Barack Obama What is free? According to Google, “free” is defined as “being without cost.” But what is without cost? Everything costs something. There’s a reason that the phrase “there’s no free lunch” is part of our general vernacular, and that’s because it’s true. Nothing is free. Some things are free for somepeople, but those allegedly free things are not being provided out of thin air, they are being financed Read more […]

Obama Proposes “Free” Community College

If Community College is free, the cost will rise, the quality will degrade, and the education will become worthless. It’s easy to be generous with other people’s money. The Obama administration is now proposing a taxpayer-subsidized community college education. Obama said they’d cover 75% of the cost and expect each state to pick up the rest of the tab. There are a few stipulations to qualify for this “free” education, according to Politico: “What I’d like to do is to see the first Read more […]

BREAKING: Obesity Now Being Recognized as a Disability

Bruno Waterfield of The Telegraph reports on obesity: “Fatness ‘can constitute a disability’ for the purposes of European Union equality at work legislation, Europe’s highest court has ruled. The judgment means British companies will be required to treat obese workers as ‘disabled,’ providing them with larger seats, special parking spaces and other facilities. ‘Obesity can constitute a ‘disability’ within the meaning of the Employment Equality Directive,’ the European Court of Justice ruled.” As Read more […]

Black Teacher Says Racist Graffiti Caused Her PTSD & Inability to Work

If I had a dollar for every time I heard a teacher tell a student that sticks and stones may break your bones but names will never hurt you, I’d be a wealthy man. As kids, we were all teased and called names and made fun of by someone and yet most of us turned out okay. But one Massachusetts teacher is going against the age old teacherly advice and claims that names have hurt her so much that she is no longer able to teach and is demanding the school pays for her medical treatment and disability. Meet Read more […]

New Mexico Food Stamps Recipients May Have To Look For Work

Shock and outrage over conditions being attached to food stamps. “People who are given whatever they want soon develop a sense of entitlement and rapidly lose their sense of proportion.” – Sarah Churchwell According to the Associated Press, a lawsuit is being filed by a group of New Mexico food stamp recipients because forthcoming regulations would require some beneficiaries of the program, such as childless adults, to work, or seek work in order to be eligible for food stamps. This has caused Read more […]

Free Birth Control and Now… Free Tampons?

Their argument for free tampons is that toilet paper is “free” in public bathrooms, as is soap, water, and paper towels. So, why aren’t tampons? Feminist Jessica Valenti asked her Twitter followers if anyone knew of a country where tampons are “free or somehow subsidized.” She states her emotional case for “free” feminine hygiene products in an op-ed in The Guardian: The cost of a product that half the world’s population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 Read more […]

Uncle Thomas, Affirmative Action, and the Recent SCOTUS Decision

Recently, the Supreme Court decided to uphold Michigan’s ban of affirmative action as it applies to college applicants. In other words, the Supreme Court said that Michigan was allowed to look at college applicants entirely on merit, with no consideration of their race. The decision passed the Supreme Court with six votes in favor, two against, and one abstention. You would think most people would be happy about this. I mean, aren’t we all supposed to be color blind? Let everyone have a fair Read more […]

Do You Want Your Tax Dollars Paying for Sex Change Operations?

It’s bad enough that our tax dollars are being used to pay for abortions and birth control, but how would you feel if you found out that your tax dollars were used to pay for sex change operations? The citizens of Massachusetts have already had to shell out thousands of tax payer dollars to pay for hormone treat of a convicted murderer who wanted to change sex.  A couple years ago, a liberal court ordered that the state pay the $20,000 for his sex change operation. Now, there are liberal Read more […]

Welfare Recipient Buys Lobster with Food Stamps & Refuses $80,000 a Year Job Offer

Welfare is a snare that traps people into being lazy and expecting every hard working American to support them.  Yes, I know that some people are physically unable to work or can’t find a job in today’s Obama economy, but there are millions of welfare recipients that are just flat out lazy and don’t want to work as long as we feed, clothe and house them at our expense. Case in point is Jason Greenslate.  He first appeared on Fox News purchasing lobster with his food stamps.  Recently, Read more […]

States with Highest Income Inequality Voted for Obama

Curious fact: in 2012, four years after Obama took office the first time, the states that had the absolute highest rates of income inequality voted for Obama (again). Now, before you commit a fallacy of causation, let me remind you that correlation and causation are two different things. So, the fact that states with high income inequality voted for Obama does not necessarily mean that Obama’s policies (or policies like his) made their situation the way it is. For instance, you could say that Read more […]
