Speak-o softly, and carry a big subsidy stick
While we’re all having a good time with the concentrated stupidity of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber (who allegedly holds some sort of advanced degree from a major institution) claiming he repeatedly made “verbal typos” when clearly stating that only state-run exchanges would be eligible for ObamaCare subsidies, let’s keep an eye on the big picture. Gruber’s “speak-o” is another way of saying that ObamaCare is | Read More »
CNN: The Question of Whether Hamas is Using Human Shields is “Complicated.”
Via CNN.com today comes this truly astounding article that purports to leave the question of whether Hamas is using human shields in Gaza up in the air. The opening four paragraphs here set the stage for the accusation that Israel is using the “human shield” argument as a PR ploy of questionable factual validity: Tuesday’s discovery of rockets hidden in a vacant U.N. facility is | Read More »

Waging War On Women Using Birth Control As Bullets
The mainstream rallying cry about the “War on Women” implies that “reproductive rights” is solely a woman’s issue and benefits women. But, the truth is that women are targeted, experimented on, and even killed through “family planning” initiatives that encourage women, not men, to use life-threatening medication.
