Do you get annoyed with cars when they beep at you until you put your seatbelt on? Well, you should probably avoid buying GM cars for a while—as in never again. As if it weren’t bad enough that GM cars might mysteriously stall out on the highway due to a faulty ignition switch, now GM cars are going to tell you whether or not you are driving well.
GM is testing new technology that detects the direction drivers are looking and whether their blinking intervals indicate mental engagement. I don’t Read more [...]
Vice President Joe Biden, a likely 2016 Democratic candidate for president, recently said it was time to “take back America.” And one must wonder … take back America from whom? I assume he may have been talking about the filibustering House, but gaining a Democratic majority in the House wouldn’t do much to further the Democratic agenda. That would be like finishing a game of RISK at this point. Only gloaters or completion-fetishists bother.
The fact is that Obama has already made it Read more [...]
The official at the center of the IRS tea party scandal once dismissed complaints that labor unions were not reporting millions of dollars in political activities on their tax forms, according to an email obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
In 2007, Lerner responded directly to a complaint that some major labor unions reported completely different amounts of political expenditures when filing with the IRS and the Department of Labor.
At the time of the email, Lerner was the Director of Read more [...]
"... [P]lease President Obama, escalate that level of urgency that you say you’re asking Mexico to expedite, because one more day is one day too many."

While President Obama was willing to move Heaven and Earth to get back deserter Bowe Bergdahl - he has seemingly done nothing to bring home Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi from a Mexican jail. What should be mere child's play has turned into a Read more [...]
Over the past few years, we’ve heard a number of ridiculous reasons that kids have been sent home and often suspended from school.
There have been far too many kids being sent home and usually suspended for playing like they have a gun. Pointing fingers, pencils or simply saying ‘pow’ or ‘bang’ has gotten many a student an early trip home. One girl was sent home and suspended for threatening to shoot another student with her toy Hello Kitty Bubble gun when they got home.
One 13 year Read more [...]
They want to take away our guns and now body armor. For now, this California Congressman wants to focus on Type III body armor, which is at a level higher than your typical bulletproof vest. This is like the liberals only wanting to focus on semi-automatic rifles and “high-capacity” magazines before going after the handguns and 10-round capacity magazines. They start with the higher end stuff and work their way down.
The local NBC affiliate reported:
Rep. Mike Honda, D-San Jose, has announced Read more [...]
I know it’s cliché, but it’s true. Never bring a bat to a gunfight. This could have ended much worse for these two men who tried to kidnap a lady in Lancaster, Ohio. And some say it should have ended worse for them. But she cited her concealed carry training that advised that getting out of a situation should be your number one priority, and that discharging your weapon is a last resort. All she had to do was brandish her weapon, and the two guys ran off. 10TV reported:
It happened along a Read more [...]
According to Wikipedia, throwing out the baby with the bathwater "is an idiomatic expression and a concept used to suggest an avoidable error in which something good is eliminated when trying to get rid of something bad, or in other words, rejecting the essential along with the inessential."
Argumentation has been hijacked by fallacies, and erroneous tactics. Perhaps it was always this way, but it seems to me that over the last decade or so, pure, logical form has been so severely diminished Read more [...]
Watch as CNN's Marc Lamont Hill and the Blaze's Tara Setmayer argue over whether or not saggy pants play a part in racial profiling.
“It suggests that somehow there’s a connection between black male profiling and our pants being sagging. Before black people pulled their pants down, they were still being locked up…If we continue to tell young black men that they can behave or dress or otherwise demonstrate their way out of police oppression or police abuse, then we’re blaming the victim," Read more [...]
Five Things Labor Unions Do to Celebrate Labor Day
For many Americans, Labor Day means one last long weekend to end the summer. But the U.S. Department of Labor describes the holiday as “a creation of the labor movement,” meaning labor unions.
So how would organized labor celebrate?
1. Make union organizing a civil right. Democrats Georgia Rep. John Lewis and Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison have introduced a bill that would that would do just that. The congressmen argue that the current National Read more [...]
Earlier this year a terrorist group of Islamic extremists gained world notoriety when they kidnapped nearly 300 Christian girls in northern Nigeria. Most the girls are still not accounted for, but reports claimed that they were being forced to convert to Islam and marry a Muslim man or face severe torture and death.
Over the past several years, Boko Haram has been systematically carrying out genocidal attacks against Nigeria’s Christians in the northern part of the country. Hundreds, probably Read more [...]

"I think a lot of self-importance is a product of fear. And fear, living in sort of an un-self-examined fear-based life, tends to lead to narcissism and self-importance." - Moby
Double standards. I've written about double standards many times, but I repeat myself because the most pernicious issues are often the simplest. We are all capable of creating our own double standards, and abiding by them as well. It is not a one sided issue, the use of the double standard. That being said, the left has Read more [...]
