Children’s Court: Supreme Court Justice Kagan Cites Dr. Seuss

Kagan Dr. Seuss fish You would think the Supreme Court has better things to do with its time than determine if a fisherman should be prosecuted under Wall Street regulatory law for throwing out too-small fish and thereby “destroying evidence.” They apparently don’t.

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me...I dunno, several thousand times, shame on me. The Read more [...]

Why Isn’t Anyone Angry Over Failing Vaccines from Merck?

measles Merck In the wake of the recent measles “outbreak” that affected a few dozen people, pro-vaxxers got the anger machine churning over all the anti-vaxxers who have threatened the safety, health, and herd immunity of the whole population by their close-minded, superstitious, anti-science selfishness.

Liberals Will Turn Aaron Schock Into An Election Issue

lies for truth "I pray to God that I shall not live one hour after I have thought of using deception." - Elizabeth IScandal is in the eye of the beholder.

If that letter is a D, let's just turn the other way, but if it's an R, God help us, because we Read more [...]
