The Common Core
Common Core seems like a good idea. In a society as mobile as ours, kids moving from one state to another should not be so far behind or ahead students in their new state. A common set of skills at each grade across the nation makes sense. At least that is the sales pitch. I did not start out to be against Common Core. In | Read More »
Sid Dinsdale Would Give Barack Obama a Blank Check
Sid Disdale is denying my claim that he would raise the debt ceiling. In fact, he went on radio last week saying he wasn’t sure where I got that. Well, I got it from Sid Dinsdale. He told local news in Nebraska he would always vote to raise the debt ceiling. So when Republicans and Democrats collaborated to give Barack Obama a blank check till | Read More »
Tech at Night: Ditch Firefox Now. Internet in schools means pornography in schools.
I’ve taken some criticism for saying over and over again in this space, that kids don’t belong on the Internet (unsupervised and uncontrolled really), and that classrooms should not have Internet access introduced. The basic problem is that unfettered Internet access brings bullies and predators to kids. It also means pornography will just keep popping up, and there’s no way to fix that with these uncontrolled environments. It’s just not worth the risks.
Have you quit using Mozilla Firefox yet? It’s time to switch, yet again, as Mozilla has taken an extremist political position for no real reason except that the project has been completely hijacked by radical ideologues. Not only are they for zombie Net Neutrality, they’re claiming the Obama FCC isn’t going far enough. Lunacy.
Look, it doesn’t really matter what browser you use: MS Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, Chromium, Google Chrome Opera, or w3m. Just switch to anything that doesn’t fund this left-wing outlet.

2014: Victory on a diminished battlefield
Polls pop up here and there, auguring an even worse shellacking for Democrats in 2014 than they received in 2010. The problem is that Republicans stand to win a bigger victory on a diminished battlefield. The Left has worked hard to contract the boundaries of change. Much of what has happened since 2010 was meant to be irreversible. The American people should not accept that, | Read More »
David Plouffe Accuses A ‘Delusional Minority’ Of Wanting To Hold Him Accountable
As the investigation into what happened at our Benghazi consulate and the actions of the administration following its destruction gathers steam Obama’s minions are trying to delegitimize any questions on the subject. This Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” the weirdly effeminate David Plouffe labeled anyone concerned about the obvious pattern of lies and obfuscation by the Obama regime as “delusional.” There was “no conspiracy” behind | Read More »

The Irony of the GOP Polling Advantage
As the November midterms draw near, we are beginning to see a growing wave against Democrats, much like we witnessed at this time in 2010. A new Pew poll gives Republicans a 4-point edge on the generic ballot test, which is significant given the fact that Democrats usually have a slight advantage even in a 50-50 year. They also found that Republicans have a crushing | Read More »
Gestational Surrogacy: Women For Lease, Children For Sale
The pro-life cause may have risen in direct response to the atrocity of medical abortion but it quickly embraced the cause of euthanasia and death via medical neglect. The next frontier of the movement should be a coordinated opposition to the idea of “gestational surrogacy,” or, in lay terms, hiring a woman you don’t really know to produce a baby for you. For a | Read More »
Move Connecticut Right
In Connecticut, in order to win the Lieutenant Governor nomination, a candidate has to make it out of the party convention with at least 15% of the vote. Then, the candidate has to win a primary. Currently, there are three candidates in contention for the Lieutenant Governor nomination heading into the convention, which will take place on May 17: Penny Bacchiochi, Heather Somers and David | Read More »
Prayer Reaffirmed at the Supreme Court: Town of Greece v. Galloway
In a landmark decision today, the Supreme Court reaffirmed that prayer before legislative meetings is constitutional.
In debunking one of the greatest myths in Establishment Clause jurisprudence, the Court held that not only is opening such meetings in prayer constitutional, it is not limited to nonsectarian (i.e. generic) prayer. In other words, a prayer “in Jesus name” does not violate the Constitution.

The Watercooler ~ An Open Thread
“Journalists” on the left are becoming more arrogant and emboldened these days. So convinced are they that they are right in their views, the notion of professional objectivity when reporting on political issues is an afterthought. In case you missed it, this video shows just how arrogant and condescending they can be. Not that we didn’t already know that. The scene takes place in Portland, | Read More »
FCC Incentive Auction Plan Won’t Benefit Rural America
The FCC is set to vote later this month on rules for the incentive auction of spectrum licenses in the broadcast television band. These licenses would ordinarily be won by the highest bidders, but not in this auction. The FCC plans to ensure that Sprint and T-Mobile win licenses in the incentive auction even if they aren’t willing to pay the highest price, because it | Read More »

The Republican Establishment Would Rather Lose Nebraska Than Support Conservatives
The Republican Establishment always says conservative purists would rather lose than compromise. But the opposite is playing out in Nebraska. The moment Ben Sasse got endorsed by the Senate Conservatives Fund, Mitch McConnell went all in for Shane Osborn. Well, Osborn is now toast. He has extremely high negatives, extreme negative poll numbers, and outside groups have just finished him off with an ad blasting | Read More »
