Virginia, Vote TODAY for Cuccinelli, Jackson, and Obenshain. It’s important.
Today Virginia votes. Republicans, and in particular conservatives, come to this election after a difficult year to endure. The Governor depressed us, the Lieutenant Governor depressed us, the transportation deal depressed us, and of course DC establishment Republicans like Eric Cantor depressed us.
But today we face a clear, easy choice: Ken Cuccinelli or Terry McAuliffe. Easy call. We must make sure to vote today for Ken Cuccinelli for Governor, E. W. Jackson for Lieutenant Governor, and Mark Obenshain for Attorney General. It’s important. Please vote.

Tech at Night: FAA admits its electronics rules were groundless. More NSA stuff.
I skipped Tech at Night on Friday because I was preparing for the Extra Life event. Saturday I broadcast video games live for 25 straight hours (one day with the time change, you see), raising over $230 (above my goal!) for the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Clearly to do that I needed my sleep, so I went to bed early Friday. Sorry, but it was for a good cause.
Anyway, catching up. NSA listening in on foreigners using Google is part of their job, folks. So if the Germans or anyone else don’t like it, even if they get the traitor Edward Snowden to help them censor and regulate their own Internet, my answer to those nations who don’t like the NSA is still: “Come and take it.”
Though it’s still apparent that the ‘leaks’ coming out such as this about Pope Francis are being crafted (not chosen, crafted) to sound plausible, attempting to push our buttons and play to our prejudices. Snowden’s accusations and ‘documents’ surely include the best fabrications Snowden’s Russian paymasters’ money can buy.
Don’t forget, though: metadata is harmless to collect, as it involves collecting only that data which is already public.

He Didn’t Lie, It’s Just That The Words He Used In The Order He Used Them Didn’t Tell A Truth Per Se
This weekend, in an article titled “Insurance Policies Not Worth Keeping,” the New York Times gave Obama cover for his “you can keep your insurance” claim, saying that he merely “misspoke,” and that besides, the cancelled policies were no good but people were just too dumb to see it, and thankfully Obama knows better than you and also isn’t he dreamy. From the Times: Congressional | Read More »
ENDA, Moral Bankruptcy, and Failed Senate Leadership
Over the past few years of defacto Democrat supermajority control of the Senate, we have pointed out that legislative battles are won or lost long before the vote is cast. When Democrats stay unified on an issue and relentlessly pick off Republican votes for radical initiatives as GOP leaders remain silent, they will win every time. Hence, that is why we need a voice, not | Read More »
Democratic Senators *may* be starting to signal that healthcare.gov is doomed. #obamacare
I could not believe that Dianne Feinstein had said this, in response to Bob Schaffer’s pointing out that the President kept telling us that if we liked our plans, we could keep our plans: Well, as I understand it, you can keep it up to the time — and I hope this is correct, but this is what I’ve been told — up to the | Read More »
The Fifth Circuit Rules In Favor Of Women’s Health and Life

Last Thursday, the Fifth Circuit handed a huge victory to Texas and to the cause of life when it removed a lower court junction that prevented a law making the abortion industry pretend to be part of the medical profession from going into effect.
Obamacare Destroying Lives, Killing Businesses
Last week, we asked for your personal Obamacare horror stories, as more and more middle class families are forced to surrender their dignity and grovel before government for their health insurance. Here is the latest from Charles in Alabama. You can email me your story at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am a 53 year old self-employed real estate agent. My wife and I own a small real | Read More »
12 Years a Slave: A Review
Movies, generally speaking, are supposed to be rewarding experiences for their audiences. Different kinds of movies provide different sorts of rewards – whether it be the thrill of action, the vicarious experience of romance, or the release of comedy – all provide some positive emotional feedback for the audience. Most movie reviews could fairly judge a movie based on its success in eliciting one of | Read More »
The Strategy for Defending Obamacare: Misrepresentation and Diversion
Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne laughably misrepresents the conservative critique of Obamacare but he advocates a two point strategy for drowning out our message by using shiny objects and squirrels.

Mitch McConnell Embraces the Anti-Rush Limbaugh Playbook
For the last year, the left has engaged in an organized campaign to drive Rush Limbaugh off the air. Knowing they cannot go after Rush Limbaugh directly, the left has launched repeated boycotts against any advertisers who dare advertise while Rush Limbaugh is on. Consequently, some advertisers decided to stop advertising at all on political talk radio, depriving the genre as a whole of resources. | Read More »
If you can vote in the Princeton, NJ Council election, vote for @Fausta.
Every election is important: Democrat incumbents Jenny Crumiller and Patrick Simon face Republican challenger Fausta Rodriguez Wertz next week in a contest for two three-year-term seats on the Princeton Council. Fausta is a woman and blogger of excellent character and intelligence, long known to me; and she would make an excellent addition to the Princeton Council. If you can vote in that election, I urge | Read More »
Why So Shocked? You Were NEVER Meant To Keep Your Health Insurance Under #ObamaCare
It takes some time to fundamentally transform America and, while they may be wrong about a lot of things almost everything, in this instance, Democrats are right about one thing: The term transition is absolutely the correct term when discussing the debacle known as ObamaCare. You see, while they will never openly admit it (excepting, perhaps, in the darkest recesses of some corner inside the | Read More »
Will Pedophiles be Covered Under Senate “ENDA” Bill?
While it’s possible to recover from fiscal bankruptcy, we will never recover from the moral bankruptcy in Washington. We will never build a free and prosperous country built upon the ruins of the civil society. But this week in Washington, Harry Reid’s Senate will spend the entire week using the power of government to infringe upon our liberty and destroy the civil society. As we | Read More »
