ESPN Ruins Homosexual Man’s Job Prospects
Will The Dallas Cowboys Defense need Michael Sam? He’s a perfect fit for America’s Team! He sure makes football sense for The Cowboys!* But they’d need to open a spot for him. Because of what changed with Sam since draft day. After the Cowboys finally gave in to the Politboro dictats of The Ministry of Love over in Bristol, Connecticut, and added !THE_FIRST_OPENLY_GAY_MAN_EVER_DRAFTED_IN_THE_NFL! to their | Read More »
The President Is Not Checked Out
Many people suggest President Obama has checked out. He treats the ever growing threat of ISIS as an abstraction. Sources from within the administration are now more openly admitting that for almost a year intelligence and Pentagon officials have advised the President of the threat. He has chosen to do very little. Last Wednesday, he said we would “shrink” ISIS and make it “a manageable | Read More »
Tech at Night: Your phone calls and texts were never secure.
Sometimes, we forget just how little privacy we have against a determined attacker. So often we rely just on the fact that we believe our communications are of so little importance, that nobody will take the effort to try to snoop on us.
So once in a while we get concerned, when we hear about some sort of mass snooping, that means no extra effort has to be engaged to read our own individual, personal data. Then we want to assign blame, as though this mass snooping caused our lack of privacy.
We need to fix this muddled thinking and understand the limits of our privacy.

Another SEIU-Funded Fast-Food Astroturf Strike Coming To A City Near You
On Wednesday morning, SEIU-turned-fast-food-worker spokesman Kendall Fells appeared on Bloomberg Television spouting his SEIU-written rhetoric and making believe that the strikes that are to take place on Thursday in “more than 100″ cities are all part of grassroots uprising for higher wages that started in New York in 2012. The fact is, Mr. Fells must have ingested too much French-fry grease because he is really | Read More »
Obama signals no major action against ISIS
If anyone had hopes of a comprehensive response by the Obama administration to the growing challenge presented by ISIS after Obama’s remarks in Estonia today they are indeed optimists. But what I’ve said from the start is, is that this is not going to be a one-week or one-month or six-month proposition. Because of what’s happened in the vacuum of Syria, as well as the | Read More »
12 year old Florida kid runs lemonade stand; municipal officials… *don’t* shut it down.
So, there’s a 12 year old kid in Dunedin, Florida with a lemonade/baked goods neighborhood stand… you know where this is going, right? Of course you do. This isn’t the first story of this type that you’d be hearing. Suffice it to say… look, this guy? Don’t be this guy. In a scenario reminiscent of the relationship between fictional characters Dennis the Menace and Mr. Wilson, | Read More »
First Tillis v. Hagan Debate Set for Tonight
Kay Hagan has been running a surprisingly close campaign against Thom Tillis, in spite of the fact that Hagan has done almost nothing of substance to distance herself from President Obama, who is broadly unpopular in North Carolina (and even more so if you accept the proposition that most everything Rasmussen does these days is garbage). Tillis is facing his own popularity problems in North | Read More »
On the important matter of Wendy Davis and the Dallas Cowboys
(Promoting this to the front because mocking Wendy Davis is always a worthwhile effort, and the author gets extra points for the Hank Hill reference…Bill S) The NFL season officially begins on Thursday. Voters head to the polls in 62 days. Pair the two together and you get why Wendy Davis’s (D – Future MNSBC Host) would waffle on what football team she roots for. | Read More »
Rand Paul’s Transparent Duplicity on Iraq
Watching Rand Paul come to a decision on foreign policy can be a dizzying experience, even for seasoned watchers of the career of Mitt Romney.

Will Obama Throw Republicans Into the Briar Patch on Amnesty?
Brian Beutler, who is what passes for an intelligent thinker in today’s American left, wrote an article in TNR yesterday encouraging President Obama to immediately implement his plan to enact amnesty via executive fiat, instead of waiting until after the elections. More specifically, Beutler wrote that such a move would not only be good policy, but also good politics. The sole basis for this assertion | Read More »
