Hal Heiner for Governor of Kentucky
In the race for Governor of Kentucky, I have contributed $250.00 to Hal Heiner’s campaign and support him for Governor. I do not know him. I know some people around him. But I have been paying close attention to Heiner, his positions, and the state of the race. Heiner already has a 14 point lead. He is running a very solid race. I do like | Read More »
Why I stopped reading Gary Hart’s piece on oligarchy.
Gary Hart actually thinks that more free speech is bad. Thank God he imploded back then, huh?

Obama to Americans in Yemen: You’re on Your Own
As we all should know by now, the official government of Yemen fell earlier this year. Among those caught in the chaos that has ensued are a number of American citizens living in the country. The United States has evacuated its troops stationed at an air base in the country, but the fate of those not working for our government are locked in limbo. Writing | Read More »
Tech at Night: Net Neutrality will hurt the poor
Who benefits the most from competition and innovation in Internet services? The people who have the most need to save money: the poor. Further they more than anyone have the need to use the Internet to save money and to seek opportunity. They need cheap Internet. And Net Neutrality will take it away from them.

Jeb Bush is Not Ready for Prime Time
Way back when the Scott Walker campaign was first getting going and was stealing a not inconsiderable amount of momentum from the Jeb Inevitability Tour, he took a trip to England as part of his actual job as governor of Wisconsin. While there, he was asked a stupid and pointless question about evolution, which he refused to answer on the grounds that it was irrelevant | Read More »
College Students: Vote for Hillary because she’s a Woman
As the first week of Hillary Clinton’s official campaign for President draws to a close, she has still been very hesitant to lay out a policy agenda. She claims it’s because she wants more voter input, but ultimately, it’s almost certainly because she doesn’t want people to know what she believes. After all, taking a star on a controversial issue might scare away voters. Nevertheless, | Read More »
Jeb Bush: you wingnuts don’t hate me enough so take this
Via Politico: Jeb Bush says that the Senate should confirm the nomination of Loretta Lynch, President Barack Obama’s choice for attorney general. A number of Senate Republicans oppose her nomination. “I think presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush said, according to reports of his stop at the “Politics and Pie” forum in Concord, New Hampshire, on Thursday night.

Dear Madam Yesterday
Back in 1979, Ronald Reagan first announced his intentions to run for office by releasing a video. That is how it was done back then. It was not really that much of a surprise that you would use yesterday’s campaign tactic to declare your intentions last week. Then you got in a van for a road trip. The press called it “spontaneous.” Some members of | Read More »
Matt Micciche, Friends School of Baltimore, and the Intolerant Left
The Washington Post ran a profile the other day of my friend Ryan Anderson. Ryan is perhaps the leading voice in the country in support of traditional marriage. He makes a very forceful, but also very civil argument, in defense of it. His work has been quoted by members of the United States Supreme Court. Ryan is one of the politest people you will meet | Read More »

Doddering grandma forgets traffic laws and parks in handicap space
This is straight from the “rules are for little people” school of governance. The school that teaches you how to make $100,ooo over night trading in agricultural commodities and that it’s fine to take multi-million dollar contributions from foreign governments in exchange for policy concessions. On a campaign stop, somewhere in flyover country Hillary Clinton’s campaign van (haven’t heard if it has an astro-turf floor | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s astroturfed grandparents
None of us were surprised when the “plain folks” meeting Hillary Clinton on the trail turned out to be Democrat activists. That’s who she is. She doensn’t know anyone but Democrat operatives, or, put another way, the only people who will put up with this nasty self-aggrandizing baggage are Democrat operatives. There’s nothing like a genuine listening tour, randomly meeting everyday folks. pic.twitter.com/vK9b1vEtGl — WH | Read More »
Fighting for $15 or Something
From the diaries… The continuous cry for “equality!” has slithered its way into most every aspect of American life. Although too often the facts surrounding said “inequality” are disregarded, emotions are strong and demands for fairness are repeated. Although the phantom War On Women steals a majority of the limelight, the Fight for $15, another emotionally-driven, young crusade, continues to gain traction, and the movement’s | Read More »
