Donald Trump was speaking to reporters before a speech in Dubuque, Idaho when he described the most important qualification for being President... not using a teleprompter.
I'm always on live television. If you're on television every three or four days you got to say things different. You can't be the same and give the same stories, right?
I think about my speeches and I don't believe in teleprompters, although it's very easy. I would like to go up and stand and read a speech for an hour and Read more [...]

She thinks that if more women record their abortion procedures and post those videos to her website, it will help to “remove the shame and stigma” of abortion. Maybe that’s what Bryce Williams was thinking when he committed his double murder in front of a live camera. Perhaps he was trying to get other murderers to do the same thing in an effort to remove the “shame and stigma” of murder.
That’s typically how the left deals with anything. Look at same-sex marriage and homosexuality. Read more [...]

MEMO TO LIBERAL NEWS NETWORK (LNN) EMPLOYEES:
We must be extremely careful as to how we cover the Bryce Williams shooting. Unfortunately, Williams was not what we want in a shooter. He was neither white, cis-gender, racist, sexist, conservative, or a Donald Trump supporter. He was an African American, gay man who had been the victim of bullying. Given this, it's best not to mention his race and sexual orientation when describing the shooting.
We do, however, need to find a way to cover the Read more [...]

"Never underestimate the power of human stupidity." - Robert A. Heinlein
Protesters in suburban Chicago rallied against grocery store chain Mariano's Tuesday because the store allows those with concealed carry permits to carry concealed guns in the store.

"It’s very well-known—and there are lots of studies to prove it—that the more guns there are in public, the more people who will get shot.
Mariano's does not Read more [...]
