Hillary Clinton Will Be Old By 2016
It should not even be a debate. Yesterday, filling in for Rush Limbaugh, I noted that Hillary Clinton will be old by 2016. She will, in fact, be 69. We are not talking about tortoises here or redwood trees. Sixty-nine is no longer middle age. It is just a fact. John McCain ran for President when he was 72 years old. Were Clinton elected in | Read More »
Thomas Piketty, Jedediah Purdy And The Leftist Ethic of Resentfulness
We need a foundation of political equality and social guarantees: education, personal security, health care for those who need it, and the expectation of a fair retirement. Jedediah Purdy, The Daily Beast The quote above gives you the typical entitled attitude of the Modern Leftist. They need everything. Human life didn’t really exist on Earth before these things were all available. The world is really | Read More »
The Obama Administration’s War on Beer
As the craft beer craze rages across America, the Obama Administration looks on track to jack up the costs incurred by the industry by several million dollars. Right now across America, breweries often sell or give their spent grain to farms for cow feed. The spent grain is a byproduct of the brewery process. The grain gets recycled, the cows, get fed, and the world | Read More »
So why DID Rep Lois Capps (D, California-24) hire a drunken embezzler?
I don’t think that the victim’s family particularly believes the Congresswoman’s existing apologies/excuses.

Reports from the front line in the War on Wives
No sooner did I write about the War on Wives than a member of the American aristocracy walked right into the crossfire. We do indeed have an aristocracy – people who are allowed to be fabulously wealthy without facing a single word of class-war criticism, and whose every utterance is given enormous weight by media courtiers. Many of these aristocrats can be found in Hollywood. | Read More »
Michigan Civil Rights Initiative Upheld By Supreme Court

Race War to Victory
The Democrats do not have an agenda to run on in 2014. And contrary to the prognostications of the left, no doubt consoling themselves, Obamacare is not going to sink the GOP. In fact, the Republican Party, like the Democrats in 2006 and the GOP in 2010, can run as the party of “NO”. Most Americans are tired of Barack Obama, they are tired of | Read More »
Tech at Night: Congratulations on your rape-tainted award nominations, Edward Snowden
Edward Snowden is in full propaganda mode for Vladimir Putin, basically becoming Putin’s puppet. I’m sure he’s enjoying his award nominations while his patron state terrorizes women.
Barack Obama showed weakness when he even floated the possibility that America would turn our control of ICANN over to other countries. Down in Brazil they’re all over that idea (the anarchists are claiming they want a non-governmental control, but look, in a world with Russia and China, and even the EU countries like Germany having ‘national champions’, that’s not happening). India’s game, too. Republicans, and heck it’d help if Democrats did it to, must signal that the next President will not let this happen.

Only A Bully Argues The Debate Is Over
“Shut Up.” He Explained. – Ring Lardner I’ve noticed something worse than usual about the Left of late. They are more brazen and ham-handed in their efforts to silence their detractors. They don’t outwit or out-debate them. They just explain that the debate is over before it is ever really allowed to commence in the first place. How does one identify defamatory speech in Post-modern | Read More »

Justina Pelletier And The Rule Of The Little Eichmanns
In February 2013, Linda and Lou Pelletier brought their daughter, Justina, to Boston Children’s Hospital. She was unable to walk, but, as it has turned out that was the least of her problems. Justina had been treated for some years by a specialist for mitochondrial disease, but was otherwise normal. For years Justina had been diagnosed mitochondrial disease, a relatively newly discovered disease, causing | Read More »

From the Mailbag: Don’t be like this in ten years edition.
Seriously, folks, once Barack Obama is no longer in office: just let him go away. Don’t let him define your life and your soul to you. That’s just poison: pure, pure poison. Case in point: From: Sangria Yagov <[XXXX]> Subject: Regarding my impeachment vote Date: April 20, 2014 at 9:49:16 PM MDT To: “firstname.lastname@example.org” <email@example.com> So when do we [will you*] bring criminal charges for [George W.] Bush, [Dick] Chen[e]y[,] | Read More »
