It Took Amazon.com TWO MONTHS To Respond to the New York Times
Wow. Amazon needs a Prime account for its PR Team to respond to stories. On August 15, 2015, Jodi Kantor wrote this long piece on Amazon’s workplace for the New York Times. The story was damning, wide spread, and has been recirculated frequently over the past two months whenever anything Amazon related comes up. Two months later, Amazon.com has finally responded. Hilariously, its response is | Read More »
Stephen Harper and his Conservative Party of Canada won the last three elections (2006, 2008, 2011) to make him Prime Minister of Canada for nearly a decade. But today it’s not looking so good. Canada votes again today, and it’s very likely we will see Stephen Harper move on after ten years of making the right people mad at him.
ObamaCare Co-Ops’ Fail: Government Has No Business Being in Business
Government is an inherently failed entity. It always is – it always will be. Government can do a few things well (the military leaps to mind), but even those successes are woefully mismanaged and obstinately wasteful of money. With the military this is usually due to its civilian overseers. There is no “reform” of this. You can’t improve government quality of service. Because government is | Read More »
Climate Change is the Universal Democrat Scapegoat
I think I have figured out why Democrats are so wedded to the climate change narrative, even when it doesn’t make sense or isn’t supported by the evidence. The reason is that they have figured out that, to their own scientifically illiterate voters, climate change works as a universally applicable scapegoat. Why bother informing yourself about literally any issue under the sun when you can | Read More »
What if Jeb Bush Walked Away?
The Republican Establishment has begun its collective freakout that Donald Trump may win. I have long maintained I’d support Trump over Kasich and would gladly vote for Trump if he is the nominee. But part of me wonders what would happen if Jeb Bush walked away. It may be too late, but early on a lot of Trump’s core support was from people who saw | Read More »
Republicans Would Rather Lose Than Help Conservatives
Time and time again we see Republican leaders berate conservatives for allegedly taking their football and going home after a loss only to see those very same leaders be the ones who actually do leave the field. It is happening again in Kentucky where the prospect of a Matt Bevin win has so terrified the Republican Establishment, they are fleeing the state so a Democrat | Read More »
Not a great day for Jeb Bush
In case you missed it, Jeb Bush and Donald Trump have both suspended their presidential campaigns to troll one another. Last week, on Friday, Trump did a soft half-Truther by insinuating that it was fair to “blame” George Bush for 9/11 because he happened to be president. Sort of like Roosevelt was to “blame” for Pearl Harbor and Truman was to “blame” for the Korean | Read More »
Jeb Bush engages in fight-to-the-death with English
As a preface to this, I think Jeb Bush is a smart guy. I don’t think anyone with Bush’s record is anything but very, very bright. Likewise, I never had doubt that his brother — Harvard MBA, Air Force fighter pilot, and the first two term governor of Texas since the Civil War — was very smart. But life is not fair. We live in | Read More »
Obama rewards Iran despite breach of ballistic missile agreement
Last week the Administration conceded that Obama’s new BFF, Iran, had violated a UN Security Council Resolution: The United States will seek action at the UN Security Council after concluding that Iran’s recent ballistic missile launch was a “clear violation” of UN resolutions, the US ambassador said Friday. Iran announced Sunday it had successfully tested a new domestically produced long-range missile, which it said was | Read More »
Seriously, what is Joe Biden waiting for?
Everyone realizes that ‘2016 Democratic Presidential nominee’ is going to be synonymous with ‘a failure,’ right?

Consent and Hook-up Culture at Odds
The movement on college campuses to establish clear, affirmative consent regulations has been fascinating to see unfold for a couple reasons. The first is that it leads to “Yes Means Yes” rules that abolish the “Innocent Until Proven Guilty” standard of law we as a nation pride ourselves on. A cop shoots a black man and it’s automatically a grave injustice that the law was | Read More »
The rise of ISIS and its genocidal rampage against Christians (and most anything else) in its wake across much of the Middle East underlines the undeniable failure of President Obama’s foreign policy.
ISIS – the Islamic State – is gaining ground. It continues to gain sadistic followers to its jihadist army. Despite President Obama’s disparate attempts at rhetoric, ISIS has not been degraded, and it certainly hasn’t been destroyed.
The valor of our brave men and women in uniform has been squandered.

Is the Rubio campaign in a death spiral?
Amid the interest over the $20 million that Dr. Ben Carson raised in the last quarter and the chortling over the anemic fundraising by The Man Who Would Be King, Jeb Bush, the fundraising of most other candidates wasn’t scrutinized all that closely. Now some have started looking and the story isn’t all that good. This is what we know: Jeb Bush’s campaign is overextended, | Read More »
Trump’s Attack On GWB Is Soft Trutherism
If we sat around, adding up all of the stupid things Donald Trump has said, we’d be here for hours and hours going over it and that would just be over what he said the previous month. Not content with his usual bombast, Trump decided to go full stupid and attack George W. Bush over 9/11, essentially assigning him blame merely because he was in | Read More »
Thanks, Hollywood, But I Don’t Care What You Have to Say About Pay Inequality
When I think of Hollywood, I think of those who are as far-removed from reality as possible, with little connection to the lives of us in Middle America. The product of their careers is entertainment, and while they sometimes like to play the part of “activist”, such roles are an ill fit. Such is the case with Jennifer Lawrence, a young, beautiful, very popular actress | Read More »
