The Obama Administration’s War on Beer

As the craft beer craze rages across America, the Obama Administration looks on track to jack up the costs incurred by the industry by several million dollars. Right now across America, breweries often sell or give their spent grain to farms for cow feed. The spent grain is a byproduct of the brewery process. The grain gets recycled, the cows, get fed, and the world | Read More »

So why DID Rep Lois Capps (D, California-24) hire a drunken embezzler?

Reports from the front line in the War on Wives

No sooner did I write about the War on Wives than a member of the American aristocracy walked right into the crossfire.  We do indeed have an aristocracy – people who are allowed to be fabulously wealthy without facing a single word of class-war criticism, and whose every utterance is given enormous weight by media courtiers.  Many of these aristocrats can be found in Hollywood. | Read More »

Tech at Night: Congratulations on your rape-tainted award nominations, Edward Snowden

Tech at Night

Edward Snowden is in full propaganda mode for Vladimir Putin, basically becoming Putin’s puppet. I’m sure he’s enjoying his award nominations while his patron state terrorizes women.

Barack Obama showed weakness when he even floated the possibility that America would turn our control of ICANN over to other countries.
