Ever since the US Supreme Court overturned some of the federal voter laws, it opened the door to states passing voter ID laws. Of course this has not set well with the liberal Democrats who continue to file legal challenges against any voter ID law that requires a person to prove who they are in order to exercise that right and duty to vote.
One of the states to take advantage of the Supreme Court’s decision is Texas, which has been under Republican control for a few years now. Their state law Read more [...]
Could Obama's October surprise be his manipulation of the Ebola crisis to his advantage?
"God made man to go by motives, and he will not go without them, any more than a boat without steam or a balloon without gas." - Henry Ward Beecher
The news is running fast, and furious with the Ebola crisis, and with all the balls in the air at once, it can be difficult to see what's behind the frenzy. Once again, I'm back to the motivation well. Watching president Obama's navigation of the Ebola crisis had Read more [...]
They’ve shortened the yellow lights ever so slightly, but you might be surprised by how much revenue has increased, because the red light cameras were catching people turning in an intersection while the light turned red. That counts as a red light violation.
I think most people understand that speed and red light cameras are all about making money. In D.C., they pulled in about $79 million a couple years ago, but revenue fell last year to about $75 million. What this means is that people aren’t Read more [...]
A cop killed a sleeping 7-year-old girl in one of those middle-of-the-night, no-knock police raids a few years ago. So far, the only charge that the cop’s still facing is “recklessly discharging a firearm.” The case’s most recent trial on October 10th ended in a mistrial, the same way the first trial concluded. The judge had dropped the involuntary manslaughter charge against him.
Police State USA summarized what happened:
On the evening of May 16, 2010, the Detroit Police Department’s Read more [...]
MSNBC liberal Rachel Maddow was on Late Night with Seth Meyers this week when she attacked Democrat candidates for distancing themselves from President Obama. She doesn’t seem to understand why the Democrats, whose biggest strength has been the once popular but now extremely unpopular President, would not be happily running toward the President.
“If your opponent loses the thing that they’ve been using as a crutch for six years and you just let them walk away from it like it never existed, Read more [...]
The federal government wastes most taxpayer dollars, not only by making poor or fradulent spending decisions, but also by funding inefficient entitlement programs and unnecessarily redistributing wealth, argues Heritage Foundation budget economist Romina Boccia.
“Any Social Security check going to a millionaire, I call that government waste,” Boccia told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “If we decide that the government has a role to protect the elderly and disabled from destitution, if Read more [...]
The standard of “viability” would allow us to kill children after they were born.
"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated." - Confucius
It's easy to tell when someone is losing an argument: they will begin to diverge from the topic at hand, and lead you down various other paths. You'll chase their white rabbits for as long as they need you to in order for them to escape actual topical debate. That is exactly what the left does on a routine basis. They have no foundation Read more [...]
Earlier this week a number of our writers including myself wrote about Houston’s lesbian Mayor Annise Parker’s.
Parker has been feverishly working to convert the entire city of Houston into a LGBT run city and seems ready to stop at nothing to achieve her goal. One of her proudest accomplishments occurred earlier this year when she gave special privileges to LGBT people by designating them as a protected class of people. The special designation now makes it legal for men to use women’s bathrooms, Read more [...]
It was only a matter of time before someone blamed Ebola on global warming. They’ve already blamed Ebola on the White Man and the GOP. Now, it’s global warming’s turn. If it’s global warming’s turn, then by extension, it’s the GOP’s fault and the fault of white conservative men, since they’re all the ones who are causing global warming.
According to CNS News:
“The larger conservation connection, however, is perhaps less obvious: Ebola appears to be a direct consequence of deforestation Read more [...]
