Senate Breakers Report and Governors Breakers Report: Oct 1
When we last left the Senate races on Friday, the state of the polling was consistent with the theory that undecided voters would break for the GOP due to President Obama’s low approval ratings and the consequent surge for the GOP in the generic ballot, but we had not yet seen enough movement to conclude that this was actually going to happen. We have new | Read More »
Elizabeth Warren: Money talks and populist bullcrap walks
If politicians “grow” in office, then Elizabeth Warren can now play center for the San Antonio Spurs and claim Japan’s Sumo championship title. Warren’s only compelling attribute, other than the high cheekbones that are a hallmark of Cherokee ancestry, is her reputation as an “economic populist,” someone who, like most rich liberals, spends every waking hour nannying you to make sure you are making the | Read More »
Don’t Panic: Sensationalized Ebola Coverage is Misleading
EBOLA IN AMERICA is what the headlines are screaming. But it’s not… entirely the case. You see, most media coverage is wanting you to think one thing happened, when actually something else entirely happened.
The press is trying to mislead you to make you afraid, because fear sells. I don’t like press bias even when it’s apolitical, so I’m taking a stand against the fear mongering, right here.

Twenty to Forty Something Year Old Childless White Men & the Death of America
Overnight at my personal site, I posted this piece on common core and my third grader. I followed it up with a post at RedState. I am again noticing a pattern that I noticed when I first started writing and talking about Common Core. “This has gotten to the point of saying communism is great, it just hasn’t been honestly implemented yet.”To be sure, for | Read More »
This is What Common Core Looks Like
The picture above is from my third grade daughter’s math book. This is the only page that explains that method for subtraction. There are, for the record, four ways to subtract that my third grader must learn. “The only champions of common core I know are paid to like it and most of them have no kids.”This is the only page explaining that method.

Five Weeks and No Coherence
Have you noticed the Republicans have given up a concentrated effort against Obamacare? They have. It is barely on the radar.

Pruitt v. Burwell gets decided against government, starting up the #Obamacare subsidy rodeo again.
At some point the Supreme Court is going to jump into this one. There’s just been too much disagreement over this, and the Democrats have simply been too nakedly partisan in the process.

The anti-vaccine cult
One of the interesting things about the elevation of science to a secular religion is watching as science begins to mimic the behavior of religion on the eve of the Thirty Years War. In its purest form science is devoted to discovery. Truths are proven. Axioms are tested and retested. Science today has become a hodgepodge of beliefs that have more in common with the | Read More »
