The Logical Consequence of Treating Your Base Like Garbage
I expect the Republicans to win the Senate and make gains in the House of Representatives. But it is notable that the Republicans are struggling in a year that should be to their advantage. The latest NBC News poll has terrible news for the GOP in Kansas and bad news in North Carolina. Likewise, if the poll is to be believed, Iowa is closer than | Read More »
Scoring Congress at RedState
I have long wanted to do something with this website that I have been unable to do. Unable, that is, until today. Starting today you are going to start seeing a new feature on RedState. If I write about or or or or a host of other Republicans, you will start seeing a percentage next to their names. That is their Heritage Action for America | Read More »
I *do* feel bad for people with horribly crushing student loan debt.
But that’s because I don’t like to blame people for falling for a lie: …while some people say these 18-year-old kids don’t know what they’re getting themselves into, let’s not pretend we don’t know better. I distinctly remember asking my friend how he would pay off the roughly $70,000 debt he would incur to obtain a major in Ancient Greek and Latin at a liberal arts | Read More »

Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Every October, I switch various social media profile pictures to this ribbon. We know what the pink stands for, considering we see it all the time on a football field. Players wear pink in support of breast cancer awareness month, which is a fine enough cause to believe in and support. Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death among women, and it | Read More »
Respect Life Sunday
Today is Respect Life Sunday, the first Sunday of October, the month dedicated to increasing our respect for human life from conception to natural death. We continue to make baby steps, if you will, of progress. Women are fleeing abortion evangelist Wendy Davis in Texas. More Americans are becoming skeptical of abortion as anything but a way of killing inconvenient children. States are enacting laws | Read More »
Infamous Obama Cultist song ‘Sing for Change,’ six years later.
This song first showed up in 2008, and it did not age well. I’m going to put the lyrics under the fold, largely because people need to be reminded about just how messed up some parents can get when it comes to using their children as political props, but let me just note something first: lots of those kids are now trying to find summer jobs. Good luck, kids! – Because | Read More »
Pro-Aborts and Planned Parenthood dealt defeat in Texas
In July, 2013 Governor Rick Perry signed into law a bill, HB 2, regulating abortion in Texas. What the bill did was bring the freewheeling abortion industry under the same type of regulation as other similar medical facilities. While useful in itself, it also exposed the utterly fraudulent nature of anyone who uses “women’s health” as an excuse to support abortion. Because abortion is big | Read More »
Only Bureaucratic Neglect Could Make Ebola A Problem For The US
“Everybody counts or nobody does.” – Detective Harry Bosch If the US Government handles the threat of Ebola well, then I, my family and my community should have absolutely nothing to worry about from the disease. The only way this disease could be a major problem for a significant portion of the US population would be for a lot of people in charge to make | Read More »
Sin, Homosexuality, and Fascism
Perhaps nothing is more indicative of the true agenda behind the homosexual right movement than whining article in The Atlantic titled “Half of Americans Believe That Gay Sex Is A Sin.” These three data points represent a significant divide in how Americans see the gay community. Half of the country sees homosexuality as sinful, opposes gay marriage, and believes businesses should be able to refuse | Read More »
Tech at Night: Net Neutrality update
The fact that the Net Neutrality and “Title II Reclassification” debates are being driven by myths and falsehoods seems to be getting out.
Which is why we now see them getting more desperate.

Diabolical Unions Use ‘Living Wage’ Schemes To Betray And Undermine Workers
Across the nation, unions are using so-called ‘living wage’ campaigns as part of a scheme to unionize workers. However, behind their humanitarian-sounding living wage campaigns is a heinous plot that puts workers into unions, but betrays them by affording unionized employers the ability to pay less than the unions’ so-called living wage. Although the defnition of a living wage has always been rather subjective (e.g., | Read More »
My Idea For A New Ad Campaign: “THANK GOD They Don’t Vote!”
It came to my attention today that the folks at “Rock The Vote” have started a new ad campaign that consists of clips supposedly showing how us old folks (I’m 53, by the way) think and how horrible it is that we actually get to vote. They are trying to get that vaunted “youth vote” to show up and cancel out us old codgers that | Read More »
Mmm, mmm, mmm: Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D, Ohio-09) just LOVES her some Holocaust Denial!
Look on the bright side: at least Marcy Kaptur’s office didn’t blame the whole thing on AIPAC.

Barack Obama INSISTS that the 2014 election is all about *him*.
You can expect to see some variant of this in ads over the next month. The first bit is from 2010: it shows then-Representative Bruce Braley pretty much backing the President to the hilt – and, to be fair: in 2010 that wasn’t such a bad strategy in Iowa. Back then people liked Barack Obama – well, more accurately they liked who they thought was | Read More »
