Hillary Wants To Topple The 1%. Her Failure To Hara-kiri Speaks To Her Hypocrisy
Hypocritical 1-Percenter So Hillary Rodham Clinton has acquired a brand new sobriquet. She’s come a long way, baby. She’s gone from the sharp knife-edge of bankruptcy, to having earned the nickname “Quid Pro Dough.” I don’t envy her wealth. I see her, but I wouldn’t want to be her.

Episcopal Seminary: Jesus Christ is a Transexual Icon
Yesterday, I posted on how history is being tortured in the service of promoting homosexual marriage as a completely normal thing that was honored through the ages but lately forbidden by uptight, sexually repressed white guys. It isn’t sufficient that marriage, and institution formed by Christ, be made to support distinctly un-Christian acts, now our Savior, himself, is being outed as a transexual. The political | Read More »

April 20, 1914: The Ludlow Massacre
While we rightfully criticize the excesses of labor unions and decry the way capitalism is degenerating into crony capitalism, rent seeking, and lobbyist cage matches we have to keep in mind how we got here.

Green Cronyism Hasn’t Gone Anywhere
Back in the good old days of the Obama stimulus, green energy companies were looking for a boost direct from the federal government, in the form of straight-up financial subsidies to promote “green-collar jobs.” Fast forward to 2015, and the terrain has changed some.
