One Big Reason Why You Can’t Debate the Left On Obamacare
One of the reasons I long ago stopped trying to debate the left is that it is a waste of time. For a political movement that claims to be “reality based,” the most striking characteristic of the left is the use of the casual and premeditated lie to further their agenda. Take for instance gun control. When Sally Kohn says that “10,ooo” children are killed | Read More »
We Wish You A Merry BLANK
Every year hysterical Christians – who obviously enjoy most favored status in the United States and are therefore immune to persecution, mockery, oppression, suppression, silencing, hurt feelings, and some forms of that flesh eating bacteria – get their magic underwear (that’s Christian right?) into a bunch over imaginary and perceived slights to their precious not-so-religious money-grubbing commercial holiday – presided over by an overweight, elf-enslaving …

Starbucks: The Caffeinated Grinch Who Stole Christmas?
The holidays are approaching, so get your cultural outrage meter ready. If you’re watching the calendar, Thanksgiving is two weeks from this coming Thursday, and the Christmas season will soon be in full swing. At many stores, the holiday season begins with Black Friday shopping, that zoo-like day-after-Thanksgiving (or sometimes night-of-Thanksgiving) event which highlights our obsession with stuff. Right now, businesses already show signs of | Read More »
A Surprising October Jobs Report
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Francis Cianfrocca to review the surprising October jobs report, and three ways to change the air travel experience. Then journalist D.C. McAllister is here to geek out about the Battlestar Galactica TV show.

Don’t Bring A Paintball Gun To A Convenience Store Robbery
On the evening of October 31, a career criminal named Reginald Glidersleeve entered a bodega and currency exchange on Chicago’s South Side. He was wearing a mask, produced a pistol, and announced a robbery was in progress. Police say Reginald Gildersleeve, 55, walked into the Agencia Mexicana at 2701 W. 51st St. around 7 p.m. Saturday. A customer was making a financial transaction with a | Read More »
Police Officer Recruitment Down: Is It Worth It To Be Good?
Considering the general tension between Americans and police officers, it is hardly surprising to see more news stories of incidents caught on tape or protests occurring. Those in the audience, regardless of the “side” they’re on, should not be quick to jump to conclusions. Not every citizen stopped by police is a criminal threat, and police officers who apprehend someone, perhaps forcefully, are not automatically | Read More »
Transgenderism reveals men are more successful women
As far as hoisting feminists by their own flaming petard, one would have to look long and hard to find a better tool than the transgender movement. It is ironic that the women who claim to actually be men, like Chastity “Chaz” Bono, have proven to be pretty poor examples of womanhood or manhood: What we have here is a plump lesbian with an endocrinal | Read More »
‘One Child’ Left Behind, But Don’t Celebrate Yet
Today it was reported that after more than thirty years, communist China has at long last changed their one-child policy. The policy, which resulted in millions of abortions – some elected, some forced, some sex-selected, all terrible – is now a two-child policy. Previously in China, you needed to live in a rural area to be permitted by the communist government to have more than | Read More »
The War Against Women Exists, But the Left is Waging It
As frustrating as it is, gender is a card often played by those wanting to get ahead, by those seeking to shame, and all too often, by those seeking to drive a wedge. Because claims of “you’re a sexist!” are easily thrown and do much damage in the eyes of some, they are a regularly used weapon in the political sphere. But while Liberals claim | Read More »
Obama administration targets Hobby Lobby founders for prosecution
The hallmark of the Obama administration is the willingness to harness the coercive power of the regulatory state to the political desires of the administration. If you cheer for them, you are rewarded. If you remain silent you may be allowed to remain unmolested for the time being. If you oppose them in any way you are liable to feel the full force of their | Read More »
No One Cares About the Sexual Orientation of Athletes Except the Left
As we’re constantly reminded by social justice warriors, it’s 2015. Gender and sexual orientation don’t matter, and it’s highly disrespectful to focus on them. “Stop looking at those things. They just don’t matter. Be progressive and open-minded, fool!” The SJW crowd is filled to the brim with those who claim to look past whether you’re a girl or gay, yet overwhelmingly, they are the ones | Read More »
Air Force Chief of Staff outlaws freedom of thought
It all started out innocuously enough. A small group of F-22 Raptor pilots stationed at Langley AFB, VA sent texts to each other containing ::gasp–horror Miley Cyrus lyrics and references to Miley Cyrus lyrics. In cavalier and often profane exchanges, the four pilots, who are stationed at Laughlin Air Force base in Texas, one of the service’s main pilot training centers, boasted about using various | Read More »
Hey, Straight White Man? You Look Like a Rapist.
If the world were actually how liberals portrayed it to be, none of us would go outside. I certainly wouldn’t. Just the idea of a pervasive “rape culture” in the U.S. should be enough to keep women inside their homes, taking online courses for higher education instead of subjecting themselves to rape camps known as universities. But as we know, women flock to universities. They | Read More »
Hillary Clinton curbs gun buy-back enthusiasm
On Friday, Hillary Clinton momentarily let the mask slip and told us what we already knew, that she is in favor of mandatory confiscation of firearms along the model used by Australia in 1996 and 2003. “Australia is a good example, Canada is a good example, the U.K. is a good example. Why? Because each of them have had mass killings” she said. “Australia had | Read More »
Thanks, Hollywood, But I Don’t Care What You Have to Say About Pay Inequality
When I think of Hollywood, I think of those who are as far-removed from reality as possible, with little connection to the lives of us in Middle America. The product of their careers is entertainment, and while they sometimes like to play the part of “activist”, such roles are an ill fit. Such is the case with Jennifer Lawrence, a young, beautiful, very popular actress | Read More »
