Message to Congress: Don’t “fix” ObamaCare
In the wake of Judge Vinson’s evisceration of ObamaCare, it appears that the plaintiffs – the attorneys general and governors of the 26 states involved in the suit – are recognizing their power. While the administration pretends nothing happened, they’re standing up, as they should, against the law. From the WSJ: “For Wisconsin, the federal health care law is dead,” Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen | Read More »
Sorry, Bill Maher, the NFL is not socialist
Sorry, Bill Maher, the NFL is not socialist Bill Maher, the Hollywood Jesus-hater who receives talking points from Playboy Bunnies, is at it again. In a recent article, he claims that the National Football League owes its success to “socialism,” that it thrives, not because of capitalism but due to redistribution of revenue amongst teams. A critique of his theory – that the sharing of | Read More »
Glenn Beck, Restoring Honor, and Leftist Delusion
Say what you want about Glenn Beck, a polarizing figure on the American landscape, but don’t argue that last weekend’s rally, his spiritual lollapalooza, lacked miracles. No, angels didn’t descend from the clouds (though, if you saw the geese fly-over….) and no, it can’t be said, because it can’t be quantified, that honor was “restored.” But it is a miracle when a paunchy Mormon activist | Read More »
Obama job approval at 78% among Muslims
It comes as no surprise, though it is revealing, that of all the religions in America, the one giving the president great approval is the one of which he speaks fondly. In the latest Gallup poll, taken July 31st, Islamic Americans say they approve of the job the president is doing by a 3-to-1 ratio. War rages (he’s keeping his “eye on the ball”) and | Read More »
Taliban Muslims hang seven year-old “spy”
Taliban Muslims hang seven year-old spy It won’t be above the fold, beneath the fold, or behind the fold of the New York Times, but Muslims (which is what the Taliban are) made news today. First, they turned the vows between a groom and his bride into a bloody living hell, blowing up a wedding and killing dozens of guests. And, second, they hanged a | Read More »
Obama to grads: Do as I say, not as I do….
Obama to grads: Do as I say, not as I do Incredible. Barack Obama has done it again, turned the office of the presidency into a forum for lies. Monday, speaking to high school graduates, The Finger Pointer-in-Chief dropped jaws across the nation, claiming the high road with regard to excuse-making. To wit: “My second piece of advice—don’t make excuses. Take responsibility not just for | Read More »
FTC does Pravda (be afraid)….
FTC does Pravda (be afraid) Here we go again. In keeping with the Groundhog Day theme of this administration, the one that has me approaching news sites with dread, the Federal Trade Commission is out with its draft on the “reinvention of journalism.” The draft (isn’t Marxism fun?) titled Potential Policy Recommendations to Support the Reinvention of Journalism, outlines federal policies that would “rescue” moribund | Read More »
FTC issues draft to “reinvent” journalism
FTC issues draft to “reinvent journalism” Here we go again.

Governor Christie shreds “greedy” teachers
He’s done it again, Governor Christie of blue-turning-red-because-of-him New Jersey, made every American who loves leadership misty-eyed. Speaking to the Federation For Children in Washington D.C., the good governor tore into public teachers unions with customary resolve. For your pleasure: “Parents and children who are being failed by a public school system whose costs are exorbitant and whose results are insulting deserve a choice. We | Read More »
Memorial Day-where was the flag?!
Memorial Day: where were the flags? Now that President Obama is back from Chicago, fresh from declaring June, 2010, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender month, I’d like to memorialize Memorial Day. It’s not dead (yet), but like other American traditions (marriage, a strong military), it’s dying, and a genuine symptom is the absence of the flag. In the last month, we’ve seen Old Glory banned | Read More »
