Chris Christie embraces Obama’s slur of pro-life movement
Obama and his followers have long been fond of slurring the pro-life movement by saying pro-lifers don’t care about children or people once they’ve been born. This, of course, is patent nonsense. If you look at the organizations and the people who support the larger pro-life movement you generally find the same organizations and people actively involved in adoption, foster care, elder care, helping the | Read More »

With growing tensions in the Middle East, terrorism, American reassessments of overseas adventures, economic issues at home, and so much more, the media has decided this week’s most pressing issue is vaccinations. In 2008, Barack Obama declared the science of vaccinations inconclusive. On Friday, White House Press Secretary Josh Ernst said “I’m not going stand up here and dispense medical advice,” Earnest said, according to | Read More »
Tech at Night: Having attacked common sense, FCC now shoots at Federalism
Common sense is gone at FCC, so now they want to chuck the Constitution, too. You see, some states have wisely prohibited their cities from implementing socialized Internet access, aka ‘municipal Internet’ or ‘free WiFi’. FCC wants to meddle and force-legalize socialized Internet nationwide. “What, me worry about the Constitution?” – Tom “Alfred E.” Wheeler, FCC Chairman? Shocker: Competitors of Comcast lobby against Comcast. Remember | Read More »
Texas Governor Greg Abbott declares Feb 2nd Chris Kyle Day
Governor Greg Abbott has declared that, going forward, February 2nd should be known as “Chris Kyle Day” in Texas, honoring one of the state’s, and America’s , greatest modern military heroes. In the recent film directed by Clint Eastwood, American Sniper depicts the story of Kyle; a United States Navy SEAL, father, husband, and honored with the title of “deadliest sniper in American history”. It was only | Read More »
I’m done with the Super Bowl. The leftists have won.
There are a lot of folks who watch the Super Bowl for the experience and could care less who wins the game. It’s about the party, the time with friends and family, and just to have fun. Super Bowl 49 (or whatever the Roman numerals are) slammed the brakes on that experience and brought it to a screeching halt. The TV ads are one of | Read More »
Obama’s Budget Indicates that He Loves Shutdowns
The annual budgetary kabuki dance between Obama and Congress has become almost comical in its predictability. Obama submits a budget, usually late, that has no hope in the world of even passing with Democrat support. Republicans force Democrats to actually vote on Obama’s budget. They refuse, no budget gets passed, the government gets funded on a continuing resolution. As a result, every several months, there’s | Read More »

Ending Groundhog Republicanism
Humanity is tormented once again by an age-old issue—is man to live in dignity and freedom under God or be enslaved—are men in government to serve, or are they to master, their fellow men? It befalls us now to resolve this issue anew—perhaps this time for centuries to come. Nor can we evade the issue here at home. Even in this Constitutional Republic, for two | Read More »
Adam Tucker of Ogilvy & Mather Tries to Justify a Crappy Nationwide Ad
Like peeing in the salsa, Nationwide decided to ruin the Super Bowl party with a monumentally depressing ad about a child’s death. It was only one of a series of less than memorable, depressing ads that did not really fit with the Super Bowl theme. In fact, the Super Bowl has become a great time when Americans, so at each others throats for everything these | Read More »
The White House and their false claims of deficit busting, in one handy picture.
Short version: use this image against would-be Democratic deficit busters. Longer version: the White House is trying to have its own facts, again. At issue is their recent attempt to brag that the deficit for 2014 has been reduced to a ‘mere’ 2.8% of GDP. As Twitchy ably notes/rebutted in response, that would be great, except for two minor little problems: The debt is still | Read More »
No such thing as “political correctness?” Ask Goldonna, Louisiana.
Chances are you’ve never heard of Goldonna, Louisiana. Chances are you might not be able to pronounce the name of the Louisiana parish it’s in. But you can almost certainly believe they’ve felt the sting of political correctness in recent weeks. GOLDONNA –The recent 10-day suspension of a Natchitoches Parish school principal because of a student-led prayer during a Christmas program was the catalyst for | Read More »
Who Will Pay The Price? Union Strikes 9 of 65 refineries, others on 24-hour extensions
The United Steelworkers made partially good on their strike threat earlier Sunday morning as negotiations between management and the union failed to produce a new contract. The union called a strike at nine of the 65 fuel-making plants the union represents and stated the other 56 refineries are on a “rolling 24-hour extension”—meaning the union could call them out on strike at any time. In | Read More »
The White House is Preparing for the Obamacare Tax
Over the past few weeks, I’ve already covered the troubles people could face with the upcoming Obamacare tax if they don’t register for health insurance by February 15th. Obviously, the White House is aware of this, and they understand well just how angry the upcoming tax could make people. The Obama administration’s solution? Dole out more exemptions! From the New York Times: Obama administration officials and | Read More »

Spain’s Radical Left is on the Rise, too.
By now we are all aware of Syriza’s win in the Greek elections last week. In the postmortem analyses, more than a few observers have wondered if the radical Left’s success in Greece will embolden similar parties in other European nations. Now, it looks like we’re starting to get our answer. In Spain, who probably has the worst economic and fiscal situation in Europe outside | Read More »
Tech at Saturday Afternoon: FCC redefines broadband, making the distinction pointless
So it’s official: FCC is completely detached from reality and declaring that if you don’t have 25 MBit/s download speeds, you might as well have dial up because you don’t have “broadband Internet.” Remember, this is a speed Netflix says is only required for ‘Super HD video’, so even speeds sufficient for ordinary HD Netflix streaming are no longer deemed ‘broadband’ by FCC. This means | Read More »
Obama’s Government Takeover of WiFi
At every turn, it seems like the Obama administration has found a new way to insert itself into our everyday lives. And, the administration’s most recent encroachment could impact our quality for years to come. The rapid technological improvements we’ve seen over the last few decades could slow or even stop if the administration and its band of cronies have their way. The prevalence of | Read More »
