Why Those White Women Want Nothing To Do With Barack Obama
If a group of white Republican women adamantly refused to go near a black man and complained loudly about him, the political press would destroy them as racists. That is what is happening, however, in Louisiana, North Carolina, and Georgia. Two of the three women, Landrieu and Nunn, are the legacies of old Democrat families in their home states. Hagan is politically connected and of | Read More »
Coca-Cola’s Anti-Religious Positions
Yesterday, Houston Mayor Annise Parker had to withdraw her subpoenas to Christian pastors in Houston. The mayor demanded several pastors turn over the text of their sermons if those sermons mentioned homosexuality, gay marriage, the mayor, etc. Turns out the Coca-Cola Company’s Nonpartisan Committee for Good Government gave Mayor Parker’s campaign $1000.00. But that’s not the only time Coca-Cola has supported bigotry toward religious adherents | Read More »

Independent, NAMED sources: Mary Burke fired from family business for incompetence.
Come, I will conceal nothing from you: when I heard that Mary Burke had been essentially accused of being a nepotism-loving nincompoop who had to be fired from her father’s company (Trek Bicycle Corp) because she couldn’t hack the family business, I… shrugged. The original story had one named source – former Trek HR director Gary Ellerman, who is now the chairman of the Jefferson County Republican Party – | Read More »
Clinton, Crapitalism, and the Fear Machine
It must be somewhat disturbing to the less devoted supporters of Hillary! For President that she can’t seem to make a single public appearance without dropping a gaffe bomb that takes days to defuse. It’s a good thing that Democrats are given endless opportunities to “clarify” their remarks by their friendly media. Hillary spends as much time clarifying as she does speaking. Our Lady of | Read More »
A Sad and Desperate Attack on Chris Christie
The Online Left, in its customary fashion, has contrived to feign outrage over RGA Chairman Chris Christie for saying this at a Chamber of Commerce event in DC: “Would you rather have Rick Scott in Florida overseeing the voting mechanism, or Charlie Crist? Would you rather have Scott Walker in Wisconsin overseeing the voting mechanism, or would you rather have Mary Burke? Who would you | Read More »
Obama’s trashing of the economy: by the numbers
As you head to the polls next week, ask yourself that quintessential political question: are you better off today than you were 2, 4, or 6 years ago? Hell, are you better off today than you were last year? For the overwhelming majority of Americans the answer is a resounding no. Though the administration likes to highlight good economic news (remember Recovery Summer) they can | Read More »

EPA to ban Argon, one of the largest components of the atmosphere
Did you know that Argon, an inert “noble gas” element, one of the basic building blocks of nature, is the fourth most plentiful substance in our atmosphere? It’s true. There’s more Argon in our atmosphere than anything other than molecular Nitrogen and Oxygen, and then Water.

If Ebola-treating medical personnel won’t self-quarantine, they must be quarantined anyway.
This passage from Hot Air sums up the current administration-friendly rhetoric over Ebola and quarantines nicely. Short version: the nurse who went overseas to treat Ebola patients, came back, had a fever, got isolated while they tested her, was released to Maine, and announced that she would be the judge of her own quarantining has just been told by Maine officials that no, they will be the judges. In other words, it’s only going | Read More »
Voter Fraud in Maryland? Machines Change Republican Votes to Democratic
