Terrible Side Effect of Detroit Bankruptcy: 50,000 Homeless Dogs
There are many sad stories coming out of Detroit in the wake of its bankruptcy. Entire neighborhoods abandoned, thousands without jobs, a city without services, it’s a depressing and deserted place, a shadow of the the once great Motor City it used to be. Today a story in Bloomberg shines some light on a terrible side effect of Detroit’s economic collapse that many are unaware | Read More »
Life on the margins
Early in his 2012 run for the presidency, Newt Gingrich remarked, “I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering. I don’t think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate.” He was referring specifically to Paul Ryan’s Medicare reform proposals, which led to a bit of tension | Read More »
Bridging the Gap Women’s Summit – Answering The War On Women
If there is anything the Democrat party is good at, it’s building a narrative. And with the press on their side, they have successfully pushed forth some whoppers. A pervading rumor spread by the left, that I am sure both sides tire of hearing, is the GOP “war on women.” How the party who chooses to murder our future women through abortion could accuse the | Read More »
There Are No Moderate Democrat Members of Congress
Senator Mary Landreiu provides yet another data point to support the hypothesis that there are no moderate Democrats in Washington, DC. Give her the opportunity to do so and Senator Mary Landrieu would vote again for ObamaCare. This is despite the fact that the law is making insurance less available for people instead of the opposite. It should surprise nobody that Senator Landrieu and pretty much any other Democratic Senator you asked would feel this way. When given the dilemma of strengthening the government at the people’s expense, the people will always get the hose if the decider in question is a progressive.

IRS Gets Rid of Obamacare Penalties
Hey, guess what!! The Internal Revenue Service has decided to get rid of all the employer and self-employed penalties under Obamacare for those without insurance. That’s right. The penalties are gone. Well . . . at least now they are called “shared responsibility payments.” Not kidding. George Orwell, call your office.
Shiver me timbers! Disney Kingpins Send Popular Pirates Game To Davy Jones’ Locker
It’s a sad day in Tortuga, mates!
A friend forwarded an e-mail last night that stated that Disney has decided to shut down Pirates of the Caribbean Online on–of all days*–September 19, 2013.
The news marks the end of six years’ worth of pirate quests, plundering the high seas, as well as taking loot and gold from the evil empire and its corporate crony–the EITC (that’s the East India Trading Company for those of you unfamiliar with pirate lingo).

If Obama Had A Son He Would Not Look Like Christopher Lane
Last Friday a young Australian, Christopher Lane, was gunned down in Oklahoma by three teenagers who, in their words, were bored. While Obama wet himself in his eagerness to comment on the justifiable shooting of Trayvon Martin, he has been silent about this senseless murder. The reason is obvious. Lane is white. His killers aren’t.

#waronwomen Alleged sexual assault, coverup, of minority Democratic staffers in Kentucky.
Oh, look. A Democratic-controlled legislature stonewalling sexual harassment charges by Democratic female staffers* against a white Democratic state legislator. I’d say shocking, except that it’s not. It’s highly offensive, but it’s not shocking. Two longtime Kentucky statehouse employees have filed ethics complaints against Democratic state Rep. John A. Arnold Jr., alleging a pattern of sexual assault and harassment dating back to early 2010. Cassaundra Cooper | Read More »

Keywords: Jeff Bezos, Amazon, Washington Post, circulation, problems.
Sorry about the title, but I want to make sure that Jeff Bezos – more accurately, his research team – sees this post. Mind you, I’m assuming that Bezos plans to introduce the Amazon customer service paradigm to the Washington Post, but surely this is not an unreasonable assumption, hey? Anyway, on to the purpose for this post. The Washington Post is doing it again | Read More »
#DontBlink — Defund It
I am in the minority among my closest friends. Most of my friends are, as they are expressing on twitter and elsewhere, appalled at Heritage Action for America, For America, and soon other groups running targeted ad campaigns against various Republicans in Congress.The ads are designed to remind voters that those members of Congress and Senators have campaigned against Obamacare, but now will not vote | Read More »
Obama Pushes Debunked Poll Numbers On Gun Control
Never one to waste a political opportunity, President Obama took to Twitter to push a debunked poll in the wake of Christopher Lane’s shooting death and the school lockdown today in Georgia: Here’s what I wrote in April about the numbers Obama cites: Concerning that “90% of Americans support gun control/background checks (when they already exist), here’s the meat and taters on that: the poll was | Read More »
Interior: Keystone XL Pipeline will impact “cultural soundscapes” and “high quality night skies”.
As part of the State Department’s review of TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL Pipeline, 1.2 million comments have been received from interested parties including environmental groups and the public at large. The Department of the Interior has commented too, expressing concern that TransCanada’s impact during construction and during pipeline operation will disrupt the “cultural soundscapes” and “high quality night skies” at national parks and recreation areas | Read More »
No, Tom Price doesn’t support the Marketplace Fairness Act
There’s a group here in Georgia that has been placing fliers on cars at various events around the state hoping to raise attention to politicians’ records. Some of the fliers make good points, though they overlook the damage they’ve done to their own cause. Others are, well, willfully misleading. Take, for instance, a flier this group placed on cars last night at an event hosted by Peach Pundit, | Read More »
Lamar Alexander Has No Conservative Ideals
The media is finally realizing that there is a growing wave of conservative grassroots support to throw out the failed Republican leaders who currently waste conservative seats in Washington. The latest flaccid Republican who is gaining a lot of attention is Senator Lamar Alexander. Earlier today, Senator Alexander wrote a letter in the Tennessean to his constituents stating, “I stay true to my conservative ideals.” | Read More »
