We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Common Core
If states would take responsibility for their childrens’ education, every student would benefit. By passing off the educational standard creation to the federal government, the state bypasses the voter, which is unacceptable and unconstitutional.

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.

The New York Times Bedazzles Us With Coruscating Brilliance
The newspaper smart enough to know where Jesus is buried was at it again. According Thomas Friedman there are US Presidents who had it easy; and then there are those who have to flat out suffer. Here’s his latest effort to generate a few more web clicks for the Senile Grey Lady. In several critical areas, Reagan had a much easier world to lead in | Read More »
Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D, VA): condemned [Puckett] judgeship deal in public, made his own offer in private.
It is unlikely that this is actually illegal, or at least illegal enough to get Terry McAuliffe in real trouble. But it’s gonna be useful, none the less.

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 »
Elbert Guillory Gives Us A Game-Changer
By now many of our readers have seen the video Louisiana state Sen. Elbert Guillory released earlier this week indicting Mary Landrieu and the Democrat Party for the terrible effect their policies have had on the black community and the cynicism of Landrieu’s once-every-six-years appeal to blacks in order to maintain her share of their votes. If you haven’t, see it here. The video has | Read More »
Meghan McCain is a Spoiled Harpy
One of the unfortunate things that happens when a government agency comes under some well-justified scrutiny for legitimate screw ups is that people with a completely unjustified axe to grind tend to pile on and their infantile complaints tend to get taken as seriously as the legitimate ones. And so it is with the Secret Service, which has come under well-deserved fire in the last | Read More »
Trey Gowdy: a force to be reckoned with
Until recently I’d never paid much attention to SC Congressman Trey Gowdy. He first popped on my radar when he was appointed to head the investigation into Benghazi, my concern was that the fix was in and a go-along-get-along apparatchik had been appointed to bury it so as to not discomfit Hillary Clinton as she, Hamlet-like, mulls a run for the White House. I was | Read More »

Battle of Mogadishu. October 3-4, 1993
Operation GOTHIC SERPENT. Blackhawk Down. The Battle of Mogadishu. They’re all the same. An attempt to turn around a deteriorating state of affairs, to the extent that anyone could really tell that Third World pest hole was deteriorating, in Somalia during Operation PROVIDE COMFORT, the CNN generated military operation/humanitarian relief campaign we found ourself embroiled in during the latter days of the GHW Bush administration. | Read More »
Jerry Moran’s Morons
Jerry Moran, Republican Senator of Kansas, has managed to assemble the human equivalent of Mitt Romney’s Project ORCA. The National Republican Senatorial Committee is, for all intents and purposes, a beached whale waiting to explode and hurl its detritus all over America. I just did not think Moran and his team at the NRSC could be more stupid than they have already proven themselves. But, | Read More »
Quote of the Day, ‘Election 2014: Suck It Up And Walk It Off’ edition.
The 2014 election is not sexy. It’s merely important, in terms of what it can prevent.

Lesbian sues over artificial insemination misadventure
I’ve written a couple of times on surrogacy, the process by which a person is hired to be carry a child on behalf of another party, and the ways it degrades the relationship between parent and child, essentially turning the child into a commodity that can be rejected if it is imperfect (here | here). The opposite side of surrogacy is artificial insemination where either | Read More »
