Texas, Guns and Dildos

    Texas, Guns and Dildos

    Yes- you read that title correctly.  This past June, the Texas legislature passed and Governor Abbott signed a law allowing students and faculty to carry concealed weapons on campus and in classrooms.  Even in Texas, this was previously disallowed.  The legislature’s action was in response to recent shootings on college campuses.

    Could the Supreme Court Create a Titanic Shift in Electoral Politics?

    (From the diaries…bill s) Amid the recent spate of Supreme Court decisions as they wind up this term lost in the discussion is a potentially blockbuster case they accepted for review for the October 2015 term- Evenwell vs. Abbott.  It, in fact, has the potential to change politics for years to come, perhaps generations.  This “controversy” dates back to a 1964 decision- Reynolds vs. Sims- which established | Read More »

    Hobby Lobby and the Amusing Meltdown on the Left

    The reaction on the Left to the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision has been colorful if nothing else.  When not urging that Hobby Lobby stores be burnt to the ground, some have urged organized F#!@-ins at the stores “in the glitter aisle.”  With commentary like this, they certainly do more harm to the cause of feminism than any Supreme Court decision could ever achieve.  The | Read More »

    The “War on Women:” (Part 1) Reproductive Rights

    *Promoted from the diaries. – Aaron* Today’s modern feminist is proud to echo the line once used by Hillary Clinton: “All issues are women’s issues.”  To the feminist this translates to: “There is a larger economic or policy angle to every issue dismissed as ‘women’s.'”  The liberal asserts that to the conservative this means: “There is a woman’s angle to every issue.”  But, one supposes | Read More »
