The minimum wage and the Big Mac
There has been a cute little meme circulating on the internet which I use as the featured image for this post. This idea being… apparently… that in Australia the minimum wage is higher than the US yet the price of the commodity, here a burger from McDonald’s, is cheaper. Therefore, it is evil capitalist plutocrats who are screwing the people. And, presumably, the way to | Read More »
How many Senators will retire in 2016?
Possibly not that many: “Of the 34 senators facing re-election next year, just one has announced retirement. A CQ Roll Call survey of the entire Senate class showed only one more senator publicly undecided about re-election, plus three additional senators considering bids for other offices. Two more Senate offices did not return requests for comment on re-election plans, though Democrats are near certain one of | Read More »
Queer agriculture and the melon of ecstasy
We live in an interesting age. To say the least. Homosexuals are not only free to cavort where and when they please but they can pretend to be married and have you punished if you don’t go along with the farce. Three people are being married. Fathers are marrying daughters. Surgically changing one’s sex has devolved from something the rich and bizarre did in Sweden | Read More »
Obama’s student loan program is a success
In an effort to make more Americans dependent upon federal aid as possible. After enacting the Pay as You Earn student loan forgiveness plan, Obama quickly issued an executive order expanding the program: Student loan issues will take center stage Monday, as President Barack Obama plans to circumvent Congress in issuing several new executive actions to reduce the debt burden of student borrowers. Obama plans | Read More »
Obama is bungling the war in Syria
Sometimes you have to ask yourself whether this administration is duplicitous on an epic scale or if it is incompetent on an epic scale. Take, for instance, the ongoing “war” with ISIS. This war requires ground troops to execute it. Currently there are four major sources of ground troops; the Iraqi armed forces, Iranian militias (in Iraq and Syria, and I am dumping Lebanese Hezbollah | Read More »
Emperor Barack I On His High Horse
Not The Guy To Beckon Others Off Their High Horse Ah, the rhetorical horse-trading that just took place at The National Prayer Breakfast. It was an event where good people of faith went to be maliciously slandered by His Majesty Barack I. Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during | Read More »
Obama, Unemployment and The Big Lie
Somebody, they might have been famous, I don’t know for sure, once said that if you tell a big lie often enough, eventually you’ll convince a lot of morons that the lie is the truth. Unsurprisingly, this tactic, a favorite of totalitarians and community organizers everywhere is being used by Obama. From his State of the Union speech: Our unemployment rate is now lower than | Read More »
My God. It’s true! there IS a shadowy transnational Jewish group plotting to influence elections!
Turns out that the reason why some on the Left think that Israel is trying to influence our elections is because they’re trying to influence Israel’s.

Governor Jindal trolls Barack Obama: ‘the Medieval Christian threat is under control’
We’ve had a lot of fun at Obama’s expense following his juvenile and historically illiterate speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. We’ll let this bit of trolling by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal serve as our last word on the subject.
Barack Obama tells @RichardDawkins to shut up
Really. That’s what the man said. Sort of. At the National Prayer Breakfast while giving us a refresher course in Martian history and reading from Theology For Dummies, Obama, alleged constitutional scholar, had this to say: But the president also suggested he disagreed with the satirical French newspaper that provoked deadly terrorist attacks last month by poking fun at Islam. He said people of faith | Read More »
Fort Hood victims get Purple Heart and the @SecArmy lies through his teeth
On November 5, 2009, an Army psychiatrist, Nidal Malik Hasan, walked into a personnel center at Fort Hood, Texas, and opened fire on his fellow soldiers. Hasan was a muslim. He had a history of radical ties. He had business cards made titling himself “Soldier of Allah.” He communicated with terrorist leaders while on active duty. He killed and wounded soldiers who were processing for | Read More »
Ajit Pai exposes the Obama administration’s transparency failure
After Barack Obama was first elected, he said “Transparency is our touchstone.” And as recently as 2013 he claimed his was “the most transparent administration in history”. FCC Commmissioner Ajit Pai, with one brilliant tweet, has exposed Obama as the fraud he is. The rush to war on Net Neutrality has caused the administration to be secretive in its power grabs.
If You Read This, You ‘Have Blood On Your Hands’
After the Family Research Council was put on a hate list by gay rights groups, Floyd Corkins showed up to gun down the place. In Oregon, a family is being driven to bankruptcy because they refused to take part in a gay wedding. In Atlanta, GA, a Fire Chief lost his job for wanting to “glorify God” and for his orthodox Christian believes on sin, | Read More »
Obama’s Tiresome DHS Washington Monument Defense
In a transparently absurd attempt to appear tough, it looks increasingly like the GOP controlled Congress may actually allow DHS to “shut down” if Obama vetoes the DHS funding bill over the language overturning his amnesty executive order. I put “shut down” in scare quotes because 87% of DHS employees are considered essential employees and thus would continue working in the event of a “shut | Read More »
Sysco reminds us we need antitrust reform
I’m normally an observer of FCC here at RedState, and one thing that constantly frustrates me is the capricious way that the regulator treats proposed mergers. It’s gotten so bad that they instituted a ‘shot clock’ because even they had to acknowledge their stalling was ridiculous. They then proceeded to declare they were ‘pausing the shot clock.’ It’s out of hand. Regulators have taken antitrust | Read More »
