Nearly 70% of Americans favor euthanasia
Gallup reports that 69% of Americans answer yes to the question: When a person has a disease that cannot be cured, do you think doctors should be allowed by law to end the patient’s life by some painless means if the patient and his or her family request it? At first blush, the idea that a euthanasia should be allowed seems to follow a logic. | Read More »
Paul Ryan to IRS: ‘Nobody believes you.’
That’s the central problem that the IRS has, here: A defiant IRS Commissioner on Friday refused to apologize for the loss of ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails, and said the agency produced what they could, attributing their disappearance to dated technology. “I don’t think an apology is owed,” chief John Koskinen told Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp after the Republican lawmaker asked for one | Read More »
Voices in the Wilderness
As we arrive fully in the world Gertrude Himmelfarb warned us of — a world where our sexual orientation is chosen for us, but we can choose our own gender — there are fewer and fewer voices willing to be heard in the wilderness of secular insanity that envelopes us. I already know the sh-tstorm this post will cause online. The gay mafia keeps my | Read More »
The Daily Beast interviews rape victim from 1975 court case involving Hillary Clinton as defense attorney.
Hillary Clinton apparently is remarkably lacking shame for doing something that would probably have kept me up at night for a decade.

If you do a Google News search for “Scott Walker” right now, you get this list of results, which would lead you immediately to conclude that Scott Walker is in the midst of some potentially very serious legal trouble. If you click links to the stories contained beneath the glaring headlines, most of them somehow fail to contain the single most important salient fact about | Read More »
Back Scratching Politics of Mississippi
Brett Favre, a man who did not know when to quit, has cut an ad for Senator Thad Cochran, a man who has has himself stayed in his job too long. The pattern does not end there. Jenn Sterger claimed Brett Favre sent her indecent pictures and Thad Cochran has admitted to doing, in his words, “all sorts of indecent things with animals.” But the | Read More »
Hillary The Symbol Vs. Hillary The Politician
Hillary Rodham Clinton has about a 60% chance of being the next President of The United States of America.* and a 40% chance of never getting elected to office again. As an icon to the Progressive Left she is unbeatable in almost any Presidential Match-up against a GOP candidate. As a living, breathing candidate; I’d be more afraid of Huey “The Kingfish” Biden** or Governor | Read More »
Georgia Congressman Tom Graves Embraces His Role as Leadership Judas Goat
A judas goat is a trained goat used by a slaughterhouse to lead other animals to slaughter with its own life being spared. Congressman Tom Graves of Georgia, long a conservative darling in the House of Representatives, has embraced the role of judas goat for the House Republican Leadership. Within twenty-four hours of Eric Cantor’s defeat last Tuesday, two members of Congress called me and | Read More »
More H1B visas: bad policy and bad business
The panic among the US Chamber of Commerce types continues to grow in the aftermath of Eric Cantor’s epic defeat in the GOP primary. The primary concern is immigration and it seems clear now that Cantor had, in fact, reached some agreement to move comprehensive immigration reform forward. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rupert Murdoch takes to task we small minded types who oppose | Read More »
Buzzfeed tries to sling mud at Tim Huelskamp… and hits itself, instead.
If you’ve ever wondered what an embarrassing retraction looks like, here you go. This is one of the more painful ones I’ve seen: Before: “Republican Congressman Says Women ‘Desperately Looking For A Husband’” After: “Republican Congressman Tells Men: Wives ‘Desperately’ Need Their Husbands To Step Up”
Obama decides Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki has to go
As Iraq looks to be on the cusp of dissolution, the administration has decided that the man most responsible after Barack Obama, Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki needs to spend more time with his family.

Jody Hice for Congress
Mike Collins and Jody Hice are running in the tenth congressional district in Georgia. The tenth district covers an area to the southeast of Atlanta and northeast of Macon. I spoke this past weekend at a fundraiser for Jody Hice. I am supporting Jody and, luckily, the largest part of population in his district lies within my listening audience’s reach in Atlanta. I am happy | Read More »
The top 9 most crazy things Hickenlooper said in under 10 minutes
“Well, my staffer said so . . .” Did she hold his hand and force him to sign the bill too? Maybe after a few rounds of the classic game “stop hitting yourself”?

Protecting the Precious
On the Saturday night massacre of October 20, 1973, US Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus resigned because President Nixon had ordered them to fire Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox who was after audio recordings made in the White House. To this day the men are lionized by the left and the media, but I repeat myself. The job of firing | Read More »
Members of Congress Should Support Marlin Stutzman
The leadership shake up in the wake of Eric Cantor’s defeat is maddening. Raul Labrador looks to be more of a protest vote than a serious challenge. In the whip spot to replace McCarthy there are three candidates: Scalise, Peter Roskam, and Marlin Stutzman. Roskam is pretty terrible. He has a 52% on Heritage’s scorecard. He’s not trusted by conservatives. And he is terrible on | Read More »
