Rush’s “slutgate” is political poison and Obama’s acolytes in the MSM will be only too happy to pound us on it until November unless we force them to cover the despicable comments made by left-wing personalities. The only person with the stature to change the narrative is Sarah Palin. We need to make the left and President Obama own Bill Maher’s calling Sarah the c-word and a dumb t**t . | Read More »
Occupiers Miss the Mark

Their stories are all too common in what has been dubbed the “Lost Generation”, massive student loan debt and unemployment or underemployed. It wasn’t supposed to be this way.

DADT: Mend it, Don’t end it
Progressives proved with Obamacare that they wouldn’t let reality hinder the realization of their idealogical objectives. Washington is giving us a repeat performance in the spectacle otherwise know as the lame duck session of Congress with DADT; but this time it appears Republicans are lining up to help them endanger our national security.

The Spirit of ’76
In addition to being one of our most colorful and quotable Founding Fathers, Ben Franklin was also a pioneer in a sad Massachusetts traditon, being born here, but moving to more favorable locals to seek opportunity. Well, in his case escaping messy domestic entanglements ran a close second to expanded job prospects. Lately, it seems hardly a day can pass without coming across a story | Read More »
