Salon is Super Upset at Jerry Seinfeld, Y’all
The social justice warriors of Salon Dot Com are really upset at Jerry Seinfeld for saying the same thing a liberal professor said over at The Federalist: The Politically Correct crowd ruins the entire atmosphere. Speaking on ESPN Radio’s “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” on Thursday, Jerry Seinfeld weighed in on the issue of political correctness as it pertains to comedy. Asked by Cowherd if | Read More »
Louisiana’s legislature moves to protect student info
Believe me, there are plenty of things to chide the Louisiana legislature over, but in the past week or so, they’ve done something that, while seemingly small, is a good victory for protecting personal information. House Bill 718 of this session offered a series of amendments to Act 837, which passed last year. Act 837, along with Act 677, was written to try ease concerns | Read More »
Forcing Healthcare Providers to Violate Conscience
Despite having the legal authority for a life-ending service, abortion supporters/promoters are less than happy. As has been seen recently, a NARAL-supported bill in the California legislature, known as AB775, would dramatically affect crisis pregnancy centers. Although its name is “Reproductive FACT Act”, the reality is that the bill is a one-sided attack on CPCs, and would require they promote abortion or face fines. While | Read More »
POLITICO’s integrity for sale at a Blue-Light Special
POLITICO continues its history of shameless water-carrying for the Clintons and the Democrat party. Now that the egregious grifting of the Clintons is out in the open, the last remaining defense is harnessing the argumentum ad populam logical fallacy to what is little more that a shakedown operation to give them cover. POLITICO does not disappoint: On talk circuit, George W. Bush makes millions but | Read More »
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 »

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 »
