Deflategate: An Under Inflated Story

under inflated Full disclosure: I watch football occasionally. Apparently everyone and his mother has an opinion on the latest pseudo-scandal to warrant the over-used “-gate” suffix: #deflategate. The New England Patriots apparently underinflated 11 of 12 game balls in their playoff victory against the Colts.Yesterday, I was in a restaurant talking at a very reasonable volume with my wife about under inflated balls and a woman across the way loudly asked, “What do you think about that?” She started Read more [...]

Obama SOTU Declares 'Workers Don't Need Choice'!

union-violence I'm sure the average American worker will be happy to learn that their President doesn't think they need to have access to choice on "right to work" issues. All that American workers really need is a union to pay their dues to.I'm also betting that the fact that most unions are supportive of the Democrat agenda has nothing to do with President Obama's 'choice' to stand against worker choice. (Sarcasm) The honest truth of the matter is that the modern Democrat Party doesn't care about what the Read more [...]

Prove Your Case, or Shut Up: A Letter to Darren Wilson Haters

darren-wilson Darren Wilson has not been proven guilty. "Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." - John Adams We enjoy anger because it feels good. Anger gives us the high-ground, a position from which we can pass judgement, and feel righteous. And who doesn't want to be right? It means that we have chosen the correct path, and that we know something that somebody else does not. It makes Read more [...]

CBO: Murdering Unborn Babies is Fiscally Conservative

quarter arms aborted baby They say that the CBO is nonpartisan. I generally agree. Both parties use CBO reports to their respective advantages. The CBO issues reports and gives testimony upon request by the various Congressional Committees. If they were tasked with finding out how much a certain bill will cost over the next decade, that’s what they’ll find out. It doesn’t matter who requests it or what party that representative belongs to.In one of its more recent reports, the CBO was tasked with finding out how Read more [...]

Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Menu Still Leaves Kids Starving

school lunch 2 The new school lunch menu is abusive.I had a close friend who was recently harassed by the Department of Family and Child Services after an anonymous caller complained about my friend’s kids playing in the neighborhood. A social worker came and interviewed the kids, and thankfully, everything turned out fine, and the case was closed. But during the interrogation, one of the kids commented to their dad that she wanted a snack. Immediately, that raised red flags with the social worker. “Whoa…why Read more [...]

Why the Economic Recovery is Fraudulent and Doomed

recovery collapse Much has been made of the recent “economic recovery,” especially by Democrats touting the effectiveness of Obama’s policies, both here and abroad. But one pundit doesn’t see it that way, and his voice is vastly under-represented in this discussion: He [William White, the economic analyst who correctly predicted the Great Recession] deplores the rush to QE as an “unthinking fashion”. Those who argue that the US and the UK are growing faster than Europe because they carried out QE early Read more [...]

Hillary Clinton Accidentally Proves the Power of a Free Market

Hillary Clinton speaking fee I think it is hilarious that the people most adamantly opposed to the free market are often enormously benefitted by its machinery. Think Hollywood. Or Hillary Clinton. A story surfaced recently that her speaking fee at colleges is higher than Mitt Romney’s. Much higher, in fact: Mitt Romney will charge Mississippi State University $50,000 to deliver a lecture on campus next week, most of which will go to charity — a dramatically lower fee than the $250,000 to $300,000 Hillary Rodham Clinton Read more [...]

Facebook's Plans to Encourage Censorship

facebook dislike The pretense or reporting "false content" will allow ideological censorship. "Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too." - Voltaire Americans have a unique set of rights, the first of which acts as the foundation for those that follow. This foundational right, secured by blood, and transcribed with ink, allows us to speak freely, without fear of reproach from the government. However, censorship doesn't always come from the government; it often comes from within our Read more [...]

obama golf President Obama gave his weekly address on Sunday, and this week he shared some notes of optimism that he has received from Americans in recent days.

Republican Icon Says a Romney Run in 2016 – Would be Looking “Backwards”

romney-landslide Respected GOP thinker George Will is not a fan of a possible Mitt Romney run for the White House in 2016. He was a guest on Fox News Sunday when he clearly knocked the idea of another Romney run. Speaking of the diversity within the GOP field, and the fact that Republican voters are “happy” with their choices for the first time in a very long time, Will thought that Romney run would mean “looking backwards.” And the GOP just doesn’t have to do that… “So far as I can tell Read more [...]

French Police Call for More Numerous and Powerful Guns

firefight France Reality and liberal political theory are always at odds with each other. The theory goes, “the fewer guns we allow in society, the safer that society will be.” I don’t even think that can qualify as a theory. A fantasy, maybe. Wishful thinking at best. But not a theory. Especially when the evidence screams in stark contrast. It’s like trying to shove an adult size 18 foot into a child’s shoe.In the wake of the terrorist attack perpetrated by peaceful Muslims in Paris, liberals would Read more [...]
