Obama 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Well, that didn’t take long. In an interview with the Associated Press, Geil Lundestad, the former director of the Nobel Institute that awarded Obama the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, says that he regrets giving Obama the prize: Looking back over Mr. Obama’s presidency, Mr. Lundestad said, granting him the award did not fulfill the committee’s expectations. “[We] thought it would strengthen Obama and it didn’t have this effect,” he told the Associated Press in an interview.

Some Necessary Improvements: An Open Letter to Ted Cruz

Ted_Cruz Here are the suggestions of someone who wants Ted Cruz to succeed. I have to preface this article with two disclosures. First, I endorsed Ted Cruz for the presidency many months ago. Second, I've donated three times to his campaign, to the point that I received a personally signed copy of A Time for Truth—which I had already read on my Kindle. This is all to say that I am—and this is the best way I can possibly put it—a Ted Cruz fanboy. As such, the following is written from the perspective Read more [...]

Obama Tells Donald Trump: "America is Winning Right Now; America's Great Right Now"

trump and obama President Obama doesn't appreciate the tone, tenor or implications of Donald Trump's run for the Presidency and he willingly said as much in a recent speech. Speaking to a gathered group of important CEO's at this year's Business Roundtable the President said, "despite the perennial doom and gloom that I guess is part of the presidential campaign... America is winning right now. America is great right now." The comments were obviously directed toward the current GOP front runner, Donald Trump. President Read more [...]

EPA Spills Toxic Waste Wrecking Environment - Yet No One Gets Fired

Animas River BP spills oil in the Gulf of Mexico and everyone freaks out, condemning the oil producing giant for being so careless. These same environmentalists never praise BP for the ecological work they do as they pour millions of dollars into care and research to protect the environment. Instead the environmentalist cynically calls BP "greedy" and "evil".  Interestingly, these same environmentalists watch as the government (through the EPA) destroys an entire ecosystem and they say NOTHING. In fact, while Read more [...]

Elementary School Teaches Kids to Throw Books at Mass Shooter as a "Last Resort"

books A couple years ago, Homeland Security released a video wherein they advised office workers to throw scissors at a mass murderer should he enter their premises. It was listed as a “last, worst-case scenario.” If you weren’t able to exit the building in time, and you had no choice but to hide until you were confronted by the shooter, grab a pair of scissors. It would be hilarious, except that this is the actual advise they gave. Stevenson Elementary School in Heath, Ohio wants kids to throw Read more [...]

No Joke: Kids Being Told to 'Throw Books' at School Shooters

No guns allowed "Stupidity is a talent for misconception." - Edgar Allan Poe I've read a lot of stupid stuff in my day, but not much more stupid than the news coming out of Ohio that elementary school children are being told to throw books at possible gunmen in the event of a school shooting. No joke. Should a man enter your classroom with a semi-automatic rifle, or handguns, children are being told to toss a few Penguin Classics his way—or maybe those ones with the golden spines? Nah, those are too thin to Read more [...]

Was that a Republican Debate or a Circus Side Show?

republican debate 2016 clowns The second Republican debate happened last night for three and a half hours. And I don’t know if I would call it a debate really. Especially in the first thirty minutes or so, it seemed like a circus side show—a contest to determine which Republican candidate could be the most obnoxious class clown. And if that was in fact the contest, the obvious winner was, you guessed it, Donald Trump. Numerous still frames of the faces he made during the debate have been circulating the internet since Read more [...]
