I Might Be Eating Lunch With Michelle Obama

I received an email from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), which is paying for airfare for two to San Francisco (naturally), a hotel, and a lunch with First Lady Michelle Obama as she visits the area to attend what in the Obama family is considered a sacred event: a Fundraiser. The email contained an image of Mrs. Obama shaking her groove thing in a designer leather jacket, her body leaning to one side and her...

NYPD Beat Up, Hospitalizes 84-Year-Old Man For Jaywalking

The NYPD are cracking down on jaywalkers. In their attempt to “keep the streets safe,” they beat up and bloodied an 84-year-old man for his street-crossing violation. I guess they literally want the streets to be safe, not people. The New York Post reported: Kang Wong was strolling north on Broadway and crossing 96th Street at around 5 p.m., when an officer told him to halt because he had walked against the light. Police were...

Yitta Schwartz is More Obscure and More Important Than You Are

You’ve never heard of Yitta Schwartz probably. She died almost four years ago at 93, an unknown member of an obscure sect of Jews—the Satmar Hasidic sect. But she was an extremely important person to thousands. In fact, she is the primary reason they exist. Yitta Schwartz had fifteen children, more than two hundred grandchildren, and by the time of her death, thousands of direct descendants. Without being famous or popular, without...

It’s Worse Than You Think: Why the Administration Must Make the Shutdown Hurt

The word is out, no thanks to the unmanned drones who run the “legitimate media.” This administration is purposely trying to make the government shutdown as painful as possible. You’ve got to give them credit for creativity in this: With only 17% of the monstrosity being closed, you really have to search for ways this is hurting anybody. Even the federal worker trotted out on NPR this morning, who has been relegated to building toy...

Caesar’s Schools Turning Kids into Good Little Romans (And Why it Can’t be Otherwise)

My job took me inside the local public Middle School, where I saw a large sign in a hallway, emblazoned with the slogan, “When You Believe in Yourself, Nothing is Impossible.” As I thought about it the rest of the day, it occurred to me that this is a classic example of how and why “religious neutrality” or pure secularism is impossible. Even a blathering, non-offensive piece of self-esteem propaganda like this shows why the idea of...

Congress is Full of Crooks Because Our Pulpits are Full of Cowards!

While visiting Montana, I ran across a church sign that said this: “Congress is full of crooks, because our pulpits are full of cowards.” My immediate reaction was to, as the kids say, LMFAO. And then I said, “Amen!” I got to visit with the elders of that church, and they explained that this particular message had not been terribly well-received by the pastors of the other, local churches. A few of these pastors were worried that the...
