Where was God? … On the cross.
Where was God in all this carnage and violence and despair? Doesn’t he hear prayers? Does he not care? Where was God? He was on the cross.

That’s a sneaky one, Unions. Using the Minimum Wage hike that way.
Premise 1: Unions are all about helping workers. Premise 2: The minimum wage should be raised a whole lot to help workers. Recent headline: Unions want companies who employ union workers to be exempted from minimum wage hike laws.

The Amazing Invisible Police Brutality
Michael Brown was gunned down in cold blood, they say. Officer Darren Wilson shot the unarmed gentle giant multiple times even as he was trying to surrender. Brown was a victim of rampant police violence caused by endemic racism, and only a racist would say otherwise. The grand jury was given the evidence, listened to hours and hours of testimony, reviewed forensics reports, and concluded…. | Read More »
Barack Obama: Democrat Savior
Barack Obama is the Democrats’ best hope for getting their groove back as a party. According to Politico, they think that. Donna Brazile visited the White House the day after the midterm bloodbath and when she left she was convinced that, “Obama is the best and most effective person to get out the message.” See, it’s a messaging issue, not a “the people hate what | Read More »
Outsourcing? Charlie Wilson sells furniture made in China.

Thirty-two years and four kids later, Crowe’s Cabinets, Inc., is a successful, small, *non-union* cabinet shop just outside of Youngstown, Ohio. I don’t believe he has ever employed more than 10 people at a time. Through the recession of late they haven’t | Read More »
DEMOCRAT Strickland Judicial Appointee Arrested on Corruption Charges
Between Mahoning (my home) and Cuyahoga counties, you’d think Ohioans would stop trust Democrats entirely. (For clarification, I’ve provided party identifications, since the reporters unexpectedly failed to do so.) In a slew of arrests this morning in Cuyahoga County (Cleveland area) Judge Steven Terry was hauled in by the FBI as part of a broad corruption investigation. Terry was appointed by DEMOCRAT Governor Ted Strickland | Read More »
