The Burden of Doing What’s Right
Over the weekend in the New York Times, author Lee Siegel admits to proudly being a deadbeat and he thinks you should be one too. He stopped paying back his student loans and has no regrets. In fact, he says he “chose life” instead of paying back his student loans. I turned forty this past week. I last practiced law in any form in 2006. | Read More »
A Devil’s Pact: Instead of Doing Obama’s Bidding, GOP Lawmakers Should Be Opposing ObamaTrade — #StopFastTrack
It is a rarity that I agree with today’s union bosses. However, in this instance, as unions are currently doing to Democrats supportive of fast-tracking ObamaTrade, Republican lawmakers who have bending over (backward) to appease transnational corporate lobbyists by backing the secret trade pact called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) need to hear from voters—and fast. According to the Detroit News, fast-track will be voted on | Read More »

Dear Reader, The Editor Hates Your F—ing Guts
Dave Perry, the Editor of the Aurora Sentinel, is having a bad time at work. The Denver Post is downsizing again and cutting costs to make ends meet. Conservatives hate the Denver Post because they think the paper leans left, though the paper has endorsed some Republicans. Liberals hate the Denver Post because it occasionally calls out leftists and has endorsed some Republicans. But what | Read More »
How Could China Hack The OPM With Smart, Responsible People Like Hillary Clinton Running America?
So China hacked the OPM and is now reading all of the personal data of Federal Employees getting background checks. This follows on the heels of Russian crime syndicates getting their hands on IRS data. This only renders the extent to which any claims by the USG that it cares one fig about the security of average Americans utterly risible. How could such a travesty | Read More »

Tech at Night: Weekend Update
Good post by Moe Lane on Edward Snowden and the Glenns Greenwald. Snowden is now outraged that NSA would target foreign (read: Russian) hackers. Gee, who’s paying his rent again?
Politics in Comedy
Yesterday, I wrote about comedy in politics, and where the line between comedian and punditry is. Now, let’s flip the subject: at what point does politics crossover into comedy’s territory? Over the last few years, efforts have been made to make sure that comedy, like all forms of entertainment, is made to be politically correct. This is a Herculean task for the PC Crowd, because of | Read More »
NYT’s @arappeport & @steveeder obediently vomit up American Bridge Lefty oppo.
The New York Times is being fed stories by American Bridge. …Yes, I know. It’s like catching your aunt picking her nose.

Unbearably White Salon Writer Exposes GOP *Wink Wink Nudge Nudge* Politics
Scott Timberg over at Salon is a white guy, which makes this piece over at Salon so odd. He is claiming Rick Perry’s use of a country rap song (that is about Rick Perry and was used to kick off his election) is some sort of cultural appropriation that the Republican Party likes to use as some sort of, and now I’m quoting Timberg because | Read More »
Breaking: Marco Rubio Does Not Abuse his Influence
In the process of writing a shamefully petty hit piece on Marco Rubio, the New York Times has actually done Marco Rubio a great service, by painting him in a great light especially as compared to Hillary Clinton. You see, in the course of breathlessly reporting that Marco Rubio has had 4 traffic tickets over the last 18 years, the NYT inadvertently revealed at least | Read More »
Emma Sulkowicz: Martyr of Frauds
It’s hard to imagine that Emma Sulkowicz wants to be anything other than a martyr. She wants to go down for a cause, and her first piece of “art” is definitely going to get her there. The “art” in question? It’s a performance piece that she says is not a re-enactment of the rape she made famous that likely didn’t happen. Despite the fact that | Read More »
Should Marriage In Alabama Only Be Recognized As A Private Contract?
Ramsay Bolton Morality Conquers America I read things every so often that leave me believing all that is good about America will die a slow, hideous death in the ditch like a drunk or stoned transient experiencing the final liver collapse. Our culture and way of life are under a deconstructive assault and the traditionalists manning the ramparts athwart this invasion | Read More »
Marcus Luttrell: Navy SEAL and American hero to you. “Sweaty bodyguard” to the left.
When Governor Rick Perry announced he was running for president there were two bearded men standing behind him: Marcus and Morgan Luttrell. Marcus Luttrell was (as much as you can ever use the word “was” in this context) a Navy SEAL and the sole survivor of Operation Red Wings. His story was made into a bestselling book and popular movie called Lone Survivor. Perry has | Read More »
