What started off as a routine traffic stop stemming from an alleged seatbelt violation ended up being a situation with shards of glass over everyone in the car and a passenger getting tasered and arrested for the usual “resisting arrest.”
They say these laws are all about safety. I think that many laws may have started out that way, but these days, enforcement of those laws have financial strings attached. That’s why police are so thuggish in their behavior. The more arrests and citations Read more [...]
Obamacare premium hikes are missing from the new website!
The new Obamacare website is up and running, and apparently they finally got it right this time. But they don’t want anyone to know the insurance premium information until after the November 4th elections. Hm, I wonder why that would be.
The Daily Caller reported:
The Obama administration has already debuted its new, improved version of HealthCare.gov, but still won’t release premium rates on the website until after the Nov. 4 Read more [...]
Paul Krugman, a Nobel Prize winning economist with whom I basically never agree, is back at it again with his five page Rolling Stone article “In Defense of Obama.” I’ve gotten used to the drivel he’s normally spouting about the unexpected success of Obamacare and the swelling economy and all the rest, but one particular paragraph of this article stood out to me as particularly curious and unexpected:
More important, however, polls – or even elections – are not the measure of a Read more [...]
According to Seattle, yesterday was Indigenous People’s Day. Not Columbus Day:
The name change comes after activists pushed for a day to honor indigenous people instead of Christopher Columbus, the most recognizable figure linked to European contact with the Americas.
“This is about taking a stand against racism and discrimination,” Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant told the Seattle Times. “Learning about the history of Columbus and transforming this day into a celebration of Read more [...]

STEWART: But the Democrats are outraged, and their outrage is brought to you by – money – (audience laughs) the pillow smothering our democracy in its hospital bed. (audience laughs) There's only one problem.

Labor unions have already poured millions of dollars into various races across the country, usually in support of Democrats, as the November elections near.
In the 2012 election cycle alone, unions categorized as 501(c) spent $23,913,872 in political expenditures. This according to Federal Election Commission data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics. While this year’s disclosures are incomplete, unions are stepping up their game with the Democratic Senate majority on the line and Read more [...]
When I mention the state of Oregon, what comes to your mind? Do think about scenery that ranges from the coastal areas to the evergreen covered mountains to the plains in the south eastern part of the state? Do you think of Portland, the City of Roses?
When I think of Oregon, I think of it as being one of the more liberal states in the nation. They were the first state to legalize assisted suicide. Earlier this year, they legalized same-sex marriage after a federal judge ruled the state’s constitutional Read more [...]

The Affordable Care Act is making more of its state exchanges more expensive, particularly the ones in Iowa and Louisiana. Fox News reported:
In Louisiana, 2015 plans will be much costlier, according to The Times-Picayune. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana, the exchange’s largest insurer, is increasing prices 18.3 percent to 19.7 percent for three different plans. More than 50,000 customers are currently covered by those plans. However, the insurer isn’t hiking rates on customers with narrowed Read more [...]
A 5-year-old in a Mobile, Alabama school had to sign a contract at her school, where she pledged not to kill herself or others. It started like so many other incidents we’ve seen in recent years that usually result in a suspension or expulsion.
This 5-year-old apparently drew something that looked like a gun. And then she pointed her crayon at another student and said, “Pew, pew.” There’s nothing else to the incident. That was it.
Without the child’s parents’ knowledge, she signed Read more [...]

Since the media has saturated us with "war on women" rhetoric, we should use it to win!
"...we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." - John F. Kennedy
The liberal meme of conservatives as sexist, misogynistic barbarians has become well-worn at this point. The left has convinced a great many people that there is a war against women, being waged solely by conservatives. The secret weapon in their armory? The reduction of women from complex Read more [...]
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, a likely 2016 hopeful, is urging middle- and working-class voters to give Republicans a chance to guide the economy.
“The constituencies that voted for [President Obama] aren’t doing very well,” Sen. Paul said in an interview with St. Louis Public Radio. Income inequality is higher in states and cities with Democratic leadership, he explained, and “ridiculous” low interest rates held in place by the Federal Reserve in recent years have artificially boosted the Read more [...]
Oh, the humanity!
Don't you love when a politician (or in this case the wife of a politician) campaigns for a candidate that they quite obviously know NOTHING about? For me it provides one of the very best reasons to support a candidate! (Sarcasm)
It's simply ridiculous that anyone would watch Michelle Obama stump for Bruce Braley, realize that she has no idea who he is, and then decide to vote for him!
It's absolutely ridiculous.
Watch the fun as Michelle Obama repeatedly mispronounces Read more [...]
