Politicizing a Tragedy
It hasn’t quite been 24 hours since a white gunman, allegedly motivated by a racist ideology, walked into the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC, and shot dead 9 people, and, already, President Obama, as well as several other prominent democrats, have seized upon the tragedy and politicized it by using it to push their anti-gun agenda. Ironically, this is the same crowd | Read More »
The Unpatriotic “PATRIOT” Act
This coming Sunday, the Senate will meet to have one final discussion regarding the status of the so-called PATIOT Act (so-called, because nothing is patriotic about it). As rare as a Sunday session is, the act is set to expire at midnight Monday, meaning that the Senators will only have a few hours at most to hash out a plan to reauthorize the act as-is; | Read More »
Go right, and stay there!
2014 is quickly coming to a close, and we are approaching another year closer to showing Obama to the door. Yes, the next 24 months are going to be bumpy and, no doubt, there are going to be some battles between the newly crowned GOP Senate, and that guy occupying the Oval. This is especially true given that our next election will include a vote | Read More »
Lies From the Left: Who Really Benefits from a Higher Minimum Wage?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few weeks, you have probably heard Obama grumbling about increasing the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. He even created a clever tagline: “Ten, Ten…it’s easy to remember”. But what is the REAL importance of $10.10 per hour? For my little example, I’ll choose California as it is my home state. Currently, someone making | Read More »
Gun Toting Democrats and their Republican Boogeyman
When it comes to 2nd amendment proponents and, especially, those pesky NRA members, one might conjure up the image of a paranoid, toothless, white male, gun-toting redneck, patrolling the Southern backwoods with an AR-15 in each hand, and another strapped to his back. At least, that’s the image democrats have tried hard to get you to envision as they have done their best to portray | Read More »
California’s Lawmakers Unable to Use App Store
California’s liberal lawmakers proudly announced today that they are unable to locate, and take advantage, of Apple’s App Store, or Google’s Play Store. To remedy their inability to fully utilize today’s smartphone technology they have decided to instead, introduce legislation requiring smartphone manufacturers to provide a “kill switch” on each device sold in the state. What is a “kill switch” you ask? Well, for | Read More »
A Solution to California’s Unemployment Problem
Yesterday, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a law granting illegal aliens the ability to obtain driver’s licenses. Afterward, it occurred to me that this presents a fantastic solution to California’s unemployment problem: find a company that you like, and then pick a position that you think no current employee wants. Perhaps working in the warehouse? Whether an open position exists or not is completely irrelevant, | Read More »
Insanity: The Liberal Approach
In California, the push is once again on to do “something” about gun violence. After a shooting rampage in Santa Monica that left numerous people dead, it is now widely reported that the suspect was carrying close to 1,300 rounds of ammunition, and close to 40 so-called “high capacity” magazines. In the wake of this massacre, the state’s liberal lawmakers are at it again, proposing | Read More »
Liberals are Soft on Crime: A Look at the Numbers
When it comes to guns, there is little doubt that people are scared: they’re scared that their elected officials will take away their guns in a misguided effort to prevent further tragedies from occurring. This is evidenced by the nationwide skyrocketing of firearms sales, ammo sales, and jam-packed, filled-to-capacity weekend gun shows. And, if one believes the liberal argument that guns kill people, then they | Read More »
Has America Bowed Down to Terrorism?
On September 11th, 2011 President Bush addressed a very shaken and frightened America and said these now famous words: “A great people has been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. America was targeted for | Read More »
