Tonight, the Democrats will have their first Presidential primary debate, although "debate" is something of a misnomer. "Debate" implies that there will be a substantive disagreement in which candidates have ...
The Chamber of Commerce is purportedly pledging $100 million to defeat conservatives in 2016, or as is being reported, defeating conservatives who might cause heartburn for poor little Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)55% who apparently cannot stand up to those 40 yapping conservatives. It is actually a sad statement of leadership from Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)55% that while | Read More »
The first Democratic debate takes place Tuesday night, and Jim Webb, Lincoln Chafee, Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders, and Hillary Clinton will take the stage. The relatively small number of candidates, compared to the huge Republican pool, are all playing second to Hillary’s frontrunner status. My apologies to Webb, Chafee, and O’Malley, though, because plenty of people can’t even match their face with their last name. | Read More »
If you follow baseball at all, you know by now that Dodgers infielder Chase Utley sparked a Dodgers comeback with a hard slide into second base that broke up a double play.

Bowe Bergdahl stands accused of deserting his post to cavort with the enemy. Sergeant Charles Martland stands accused of forcefully removing a child rapist from a U.S. military base in order to defend a child.
Bergdahl was treated as a hero by the Obama Administration. Sergeant Martland – a decorated Green Beret – may be kicked out of the military.
This is pretty much the apex of failure theater. Having failed for years to accomplish literally anything in the majority – not even the glory of forcing a lame duck President to veto a bill – Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)54% has now apparently decided that he is going to examine changes to the filibuster – of course, now that the Senate | Read More »
The gun control debate at times contains hyperbole from both sides. But the hyperbole from those opposed to more gun control is often limited. For those who support gun control however, hyperbole and often outright stupidity becomes the standard basis for their “arguments.” President Obama, speaking before a bunch of Hollywood fat cats actually made the claim that it is easier to buy a gun than | Read More »
As I mentioned earlier, this is all part of the plan. Barack Obama is no idiot. Idiots do not get elected President of the United States. This is all by design. This includes not really punishing Bowe Bergdahl. Remember him? He walked off his base, hung out with the Taliban, and the President traded five terrorists to get him back. As Leon Wolf notes, Bergdahl | Read More »

Essentially, Salon is accusing Wayne LaPierre of being responsible for thousands of deaths in the U.S. since 1991. It is important to realize just how grossly inaccurate and dangerous this kind of rhetoric is, because it can lead to huge complications down the road. Although 26-year-old Christopher Harper-Mercer pulled the trigger on the gun that killed nine people at Umpqua Community College in Oregon on Thursday, | Read More »
