Rubio vs. The Field
In sports, whenever there is a prohibitive favorite that has to compete against a crowded field (especially in sports where the outcome is hard to predict), a popular game sports talkers like to play is to play “Prohibitive favorite vs. the field – who would you pick?” For example, in the NCAA basketball tournament this year, Kentucky was a roughly even bet to win the | Read More »

More GOP Failure Theater: We have to save Obamacare in order to destroy it
The problem with the GOP, particularly the Senate, is that other than being gutless poltroons they simply don’t know how to win. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58%‘s idea of fighting is dropping his trousers and handing the nearest Democrat a tub of Astroglide. The Supreme Court heard King versus Burwell in March. That case could decide the fate of Obamacare. If the | Read More »
Consciously Sidelining Ourselves
Though Walmart remains fixed in the American conscience as Sam Walton’s business, it is less and less that. Walton was folksy and relatable to the Americans who shopped at Walmart. Everyone could imagine Sam Walton shopping there too. But over the years, Walmart’s management has passed out of the direct hands of Walton’s family. A few of the Walton clan remain on the Walmart Board | Read More »
Follow the Money: Earth Day 2015
Forty-five years ago, 22 million Americans celebrated clean air, clean water and a clean environment on the very first Earth Day. The day itself was created by Republican (gasp) President Richard Nixon. He signed the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requiring all federal agencies to prepare environmental impact statements and commemorated the very first Earth Day on April 22, 1970. The history books gloss over | Read More »

Tell the House to Pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
Thanks to the craven capitulation of Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) 58%, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) 82% and others, the House failed in February to pass an abortion bill that enjoys support from 60% of the American public. However, the House is considering rectifying this error and bringing the bill back up for consideration. It’s time to hit the phones and | Read More »
Earth Day: Kwanzaa for liberals
Here we are. Earth Day. Yay. Earth Day was founded back in 1970, making it, according to the figuring of Vox’s Ezra Klein, damned old. Just like the Declaration of Independence or the Magna Carta or one of those really old documents that no one understands. Back when Earth Day was started the world teetered on the brink of destruction. Man was just one more | Read More »

Bill Clinton sold us to the ChiComs; Hillary sold us to the Russians
I owe the Obama administration an apology. Since the early days of 2009, I’ve attributed our Russia policy to naivete. To that romance which those who sat at the feet of Old School commies feel for the Worker’s Paradise of the former USSR. Sure, there was garden variety incompetence and intellectual bankruptcy but when you staff you administration with academics that is baked in. And, | Read More »

Tech at Night: It’s time to pass cybersecurity information sharing
Some libertarians may be choosing to side with anarchists and progressives on cybersecurity, by reducing prosecution of privacy and security online (which would make it harder for us to argue government surveillance online is a big deal), and by opposing cybersecurity information sharing, but we need to go forward in the direction of security and rule of law here.
