Remember convicted sex fiend Del. Joe Morrissey (D, VA)? Guess what they didn’t tell you!
I was going along, minding my own business: just trying to get my coffee in on an up-too-early Saturday morning. Then I hit this sentence about the problems the Democratic caucus in the Virginia legislature is having with one of its members having been convicted of sleeping with his 17 year old receptionist (bolding mine): “There was a racial undercurrent to some of the arguments made | Read More »
Topic for discussion: was Prohibition the Progressive movement’s *greatest* disaster?
Having been reminded that today (January 16th) is the anniversary of one of the greatest social policy disasters (if not the absolute worst) in American history: This day in 1918, America did a very terrible thing: we voluntarily outlawed booze. http://t.co/nE1lJAQQnj — Kemberlee Kaye (@KemberleeKaye) January 16, 2015 …I am left to wonder: was it also the greatest policy disaster of the Progressive movement? Because, | Read More »

Collectivism and the presumption of guilt
Back in March of 2012, First Lady Michelle Obama told a charming and funny story about how she supposedly slipped out to a Target department store on an undercover shopping run. (The Obamas are both shameless phonies, so of course this bit of Princess-and-Pauper mingling with the Little People was actually a staged publicity stunt – there just happened to be press photographers standing by to snap pictures | Read More »

#LASen: A Little More on Mary Landrieu’s Slamming of Her State’s Voters
My Front Page colleague Joe Cunningham has done a great job covering Mary Landrieu referring to Louisiana voters as racist and sexist, but there’s a couple more things I’d like to point out. First of all, if you haven’t seen the video of the exchange, NBC News has it up: Here’s the most important part: I’ll be very very honest with you. The South has not | Read More »

Bill Maher Has a Point about Islam, Liberalism and Morality
Liberal Vs. Progressive “We’re liberals … we’re trying to stand up for the principles of liberalism! And so, y’know, I think we’re just saying we need to identify illiberalism wherever we find it in the world, and not forgive it because it comes from [a group that] people perceive as a minority.” – Bill Maher If I live long enough, then | Read More »
Cindy Sheehan: Democrats support war because of “reverse racism”
One of the questions everyone has been asking since 20111, when Obama started his slow motion, unilateral and ineffectual wars against a lot of stuff in the Arab world, is where the hell is Cindy Sheehan? Sheehan, you may recall, was the frothing, addled woman who shambled about the political landscape during President Bush’s second term protesting the Iraq War based on the loss of | Read More »
Race: A Conservative View
The recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, ought to cause us to pause and reflect on the issue of race in America. It seems like after every incident similar to what is happening in that St. Louis suburb, we hear calls from our friends on the Left for a “national conversation on race”. It is a conversation we have needed to have for decades, and it | Read More »

Racism, Voting and Ferguson
Let me begin with a little background. I have lived in the St. Louis area most of my life. I live less than 20 minutes from Ferguson. I drive within a mile of the Ferguson protest site every couple of weeks as I travel to/from Illinois. I used to buy Krispy Kreme donuts at a store on West Florissant Rd, the street where the problems | Read More »
Swept away on the Tides of Narrative
I made an observation on Twitter about the situation in Ferguson, Missouri this morning, and a helpful reader noted that C.S. Lewis had already expressed the same idea with great eloquence: @Doc_0 C. S. Lewis “How monotonously alike all the great tyrants and conquerors have been; how gloriously different are the saints.” — Darla (@Darla2015) August 19, 2014 There are many different ways for a | Read More »
Journalists Are Not Special, Even In Ferguson
While we decry the heavy-handed tactics of the police amid the shocking riots in Ferguson, Missouri, let us not pass over the other antagonists in the drama, the media. It’s unusual for me to disagree with Hot Air’s Mary Katherine Hamm, who says that national reporters are valuable test subjects for Constitutional rights. Allowing reporters to continue in the illusion that they are something special | Read More »
Racist Juan Williams strikes again!
According to Webster’s Dictionary, racism is a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities. In other words, the race of an individual pretty much decides the character and actions taken by an individual. This has often been understood to mean how a white person might treat a non-white person, particularly blacks. However, since the election of America’s first half-black / | Read More »
