The Private Sector Solves Problems – Government Exacerbates and Creates Them
The seven years of the President Barack Obama Administration have provided us with two diametrically opposite things. The government time and again failing utterly in just about everything it tries to do – economic recovery, job creation, health care, defense of our borders and our nation, budget stewardship,…. Meanwhile, the Administration and its Democrat Party keep usurping and pushing to usurp as much of the | Read More »
Hey Republicans, You Can’t Just Run Against Barack Obama to Save Bad Candidates
The Louisiana Governor’s Mansion flipped to the Democrats just four years after Bobby Jindal won re-election against a Democrat who only got 17% of the vote with Jindal winning every parish. There are some lessons national Republicans should take away. First, candidates matter. Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) 84% was a terrible candidate. He threw Bobby Jindal under the bus to show Louisiana | Read More »

Europeans Say Terrorists Are Impossible To Find Among Refugees
Syrian refugees strike in front of Budapest Keleti railway station. Refugee crisis. Budapest, Hungary, Central Europe, 3 September 2015.

Jeb Bush Finds Money Can’t Buy Love… Or Move His Poll Numbers
A couple of new national polls have come out over the weekend. They are very similar: ABC/Washington Post Fox News Both polls show the race to be between four candidates divided into two distinct tiers.

Freedom Of Speech? Not Important To 40% Of This Group
At this point, climate change won’t bring about the demise of our civilization, but Millennials and their feelings might. The majority of the M Generation bases everything on the emotions of the moment, not facts. But you already know this because you’ve observed what is happening at Mizzou, Amherst, and other institutions of “higher learning” across the nation. College kids, who stomp their feet at | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Releases Her Inner Redneck
There is probably no one currently running for president who can out-pander Hillary Clinton. This is to be expected. When your entire life is a testament to the power of the lie, pandering comes naturally. One of the most amusing things she does is un-corking her half-assed imitations of regional accents. Perhaps the most hilarious political video of all time, it is certainly up there | Read More »
HHS Says ObamaCare Is Too Big To Fail
Last week, ObamaCare was hit with a body blow as one of the nation’s major health insurers, United Healthcare, announced it was pulling back from Obamacare in 2016 and may not participate at all in 2017: UnitedHealth Group Chief Executive Stephen J. Hemsley said the company isn’t willing to continue its losses into 2017. UnitedHealth has already locked in its exchange offerings for 2016, but | Read More »
Are Iowa Evangelicals And Conservatives Moving To Ted Cruz?
One of the critical battles going on beneath the radar is the battle between Ben Carson and Ted Cruz for the Evangelical, and I’d say conservative Catholic, vote. While Trump is trolling everyone in sight to earn free media and Marco Rubio is picking Jeb Bush’s moldering bones, Ted Cruz and Ben Carson have been carrying on a polite, gentlemanly, and low key war. The winner of this | Read More »

Hubris: The Tragedy Of War In the Twentieth Century
Alistair Horne is one of those rare writers on military affairs who actually has some experience. He enlisted in the Royal Air Force in 1943 at age 17. His vision kept him from qualifying as a pilot so he managed to land a commission in the Coldstream Guards and fought with them in Europe. After the war he did a stint in the Middle East, | Read More »
Election Day ! Louisiana! (an open thread about anything)
I kneaux nothing about Lussiana politics, and I’ll be the first to admit it. But, I suspect others on here do and may want to chime in. Plus its a weekend, which means all kinds of stuff can happen and usually does, hence the desire for open threads since some stories have no home to go to. Also, this is Thanksgiving week. So, dig out your | Read More »
How Rep. Peter King Is Working With Harry Reid To Limit Gun Ownership
Yesterday, we posted on the dangerous push Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 11% is making to close the “terrorist loophole” in our gun laws. It sounds terrible, right, that suspected terrorists would be allowed to by firearms. That is, until you think about it. The terrorist watch list that the Democrats are so anxious to use comprises well over a million names. In | Read More »
The Army Is In The Streets: Brussels Locked Down Under Specific Terror Threat
