Mark Pryor dismisses Tom Cotton’s military service as “entitlement”
In a world where the United States military has become a politically correct social experiment; where military leaders are suspended for being insensitive; where openly homosexual troops perform in drag and officers are forced to embrace it or resign; and where a male soldier convicted of selling military secrets can force the military to recognize and accommodate his claim that he is a woman, it | Read More »
Bentley Rayburn Defends Religious Freedom For The Military
As Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput remarked in his Lenten reflection a couple of years ago: Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will | Read More »

Karen Handel for Senate
I have not wanted to take a position on the Georgia Senate race. I have several friends running. I have maintained that my heart is with Paul Broun and my head is with Karen Handel. If I could will someone into the Senate, it’d be Congressman Paul Broun. He’s a terrific and profoundly decent person. But in the end my head has won out for | Read More »
Thomas Piketty, Wealth Inequality and Cargo Cult Economics
Economics is much more akin climatology than to real science. It is larded with theories that are simply not falsifiable, it relies on complex models that can work backwards from a known point but are unable to predict an outcome, and adherence to fads and a good publicist are more important to success than actually being accurate. None of this is to say economics is | Read More »

The Simple Truth of Tax Policy
One of the ephemeral trends in Washington policy circles these days is for members of Congress to craft their own draft plans for tax reforms in anticipation of a wholesale reform effort in the coming years. It’s good that members are discussing reforming our antiquated and anti-growth tax code. However, conservative members must not fall into the trap of adopting some anti-conservative premises when crafting | Read More »

Congress Should Investigate UAW’s Neutrality Agreement & Works Council Scam At VW
On Monday, with their Southern Strategy in peril after their devastating defeat at Volkswagen in Chattanooga, United Auto Workers bosses abruptly abandoned their attempt at creating a media circus by withdrawing their absurd election objections with the National Labor Relations Board. A short time after the UAW’s failure to appear at the NLRB (leaving some pro-UAW supporters rather dumbfounded), the NLRB certified the election that | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Will Be Old By 2016
It should not even be a debate. Yesterday, filling in for Rush Limbaugh, I noted that Hillary Clinton will be old by 2016. She will, in fact, be 69. We are not talking about tortoises here or redwood trees. Sixty-nine is no longer middle age. It is just a fact. John McCain ran for President when he was 72 years old. Were Clinton elected in | Read More »
Thomas Piketty, Jedediah Purdy And The Leftist Ethic of Resentfulness
We need a foundation of political equality and social guarantees: education, personal security, health care for those who need it, and the expectation of a fair retirement. Jedediah Purdy, The Daily Beast The quote above gives you the typical entitled attitude of the Modern Leftist. They need everything. Human life didn’t really exist on Earth before these things were all available. The world is really | Read More »
The Obama Administration’s War on Beer
As the craft beer craze rages across America, the Obama Administration looks on track to jack up the costs incurred by the industry by several million dollars. Right now across America, breweries often sell or give their spent grain to farms for cow feed. The spent grain is a byproduct of the brewery process. The grain gets recycled, the cows, get fed, and the world | Read More »
