    The Commodification of Men

    The Commodification of Men

    Last week, author Susan Patton was on Fox and Friends with Steve Doocy and the resulting segment has become a source of some controversy not just among the usual feminist crowd but also among even some conservative professional women. ThinkProgress summed up the exchange thusly: The controversial author criticized today’s women for “acting like such an entitled princess” and prioritizing careers ahead of their families. Men, Patton | Read More »

    Neither Charles Blow nor President Obama Knows How to Take Responsibility

    Neither Charles Blow nor President Obama Knows How to Take Responsibility

    I have said for many years that there is literally nothing that Obama could do that would not earn either a defense or outright praise from New York Times Parody Columnist Charles Blow. The latest example of Blow’s inimitable lickspittlery purports to be an indignant response to John Boehner’s facially obvious assertion that Barack Obama refuses to take responsibility for anything. Blow claims, in his | Read More »

    Mark Begich’s Feeble Attempt to Run Away From (and Against) President Obama

    Mark Begich's Feeble Attempt to Run Away From (and Against) President Obama

    Predictably, Mark Begich (D-AK) is attempting to run away from, and even against, President Obama, who was never particularly popular in Alaska on his best day and is performing especially poorly now. Begich is so desperate to create space from Obama that he is attempting to create the impression that he is not just different from Obama; he is actively opposed to Obama. BARROW, Alaska | Read More »

    Amanda Marcotte’s Continuing Assault on Facts, Decency, and Reason

    Usually I avoid responding to political columnists who are obviously afflicted with particularly insidious forms of dementia which of necessity includes Amanda Marcotte. But this particularly insane rant – which exists solely to take unsourced and spurious accusations against crisis pregnancy centers – is so blatantly dishonest and delusional that it demands at least some sort of response. The basic thrust of Marcotte’s argument is | Read More »

    Mark Udall (D-CO) Objectifies Women

    Mark Udall (D-CO) Objectifies Women

    It’s often said that men objectify women by reducing them to one (or more) of their body parts in a sexual fashion. Colorado’s Democrat Senator Mark Udall, who is in deep trouble in his re-election bid, is guilty of just such objectification as he desperately tries to woo women voters to save his job. Udall has made it clear that he intends to make women | Read More »

    The Common Core Assault on Homeschooling

    The Common Core Assault on Homeschooling

    Ohio is one of the many states in the U.S. that is scheduled to implement the controversial Common Core requirements next year. Although the Ohio legislature has attempted to essentially “half opt in” to Common Core by at least theoretically allowing county school boards to construct curricula outside of Common Core, and although Common Core at least in theory does not constrict homeschooling, Ohio homeschooling | Read More »

    The Hidden Costs of Obamacare

    The Hidden Costs of Obamacare

    Obamacare is a tax that is costly to businesses and individuals in a lot of obvious ways. Many of those, though – the penalties, the fees, the increased costs of coverage, the loss of doctors and health plans – have already been covered ad nauseam. One aspect of the law’s cost to the American economy that has received comparatively little attention has been the compliance costs | Read More »

    President Obama Refuses to Treat the Border Crisis Seriously

    President Obama Refuses to Treat the Border Crisis Seriously

    Right now, a legal and humanitarian crisis is unfolding on our Southern border. And our President simply cannot bring himself to take the problem seriously. By all accounts, tens of thousands of refugees have spilled across the border, many of whom are unaccompanied minors or single parents. A large plurality of the accumulated mass are not illegal immigrants seeking to come here for work, but | Read More »

    The Indifferent Leader

    The Indifferent Leader

    Obama has had a very bad year at the Supreme Court. As catalogued by Reason, the President has suffered a series of stunning and mostly unanimous rebukes at the hands of SCOTUS (including the two Justices he appointed) in connection with executive branch overreach. Predictably, Obama has responded to this rebuke by going on the stump and swearing to do even more than he has | Read More »

    The White House Does Not Understand What Happened in the Hobby Lobby Case

    The White House Does Not Understand What Happened in the Hobby Lobby Case

    It is not surprising that most leftist commentators are completely missing the boat on the Hobby Lobby decision. After all, one does not become a writer for The Nation or Mother Jones or DailyKos by being smart or knowledgeable. What’s troubling is that the White House seems equally clueless as to what actually happened today – although it’s still up in the air whether this | Read More »

    Totalitarians Oppose Today’s SCOTUS Rulings

    Totalitarians Oppose Today's SCOTUS Rulings

    Make no mistake, both of today’s SCOTUS rulings were about freedom. And the parade of screeching liberals opposed to both results has made it clear that when it comes to freedom, they are against it. The first case, Harris v. Quinn, dealt with the freedom of employees to refuse to join a union or pay compulsory dues to a union they don’t wish to belong to. | Read More »

    Thad Cochran or Someone at his Behest Illegally Paid for Votes, Probably

    Thad Cochran or Someone at his Behest Illegally Paid for Votes, Probably

    Let’s start with what we know. FiveThirtyEight has done an analysis that shows that Thad Cochran’s campaign benefited from around 30,000 additional black votes in the runoff election as compared to the initial primary. If you were given only this piece of information and knew nothing of how politics works in the deep South, you might well sound like credulous naif and establishment stooge Rand | Read More »

    Democrats vs. The First Amendment

    Democrats vs. The First Amendment

    In a lot of ways, it’s hard to discern an identifiable platform for the Democratic Party nowadays, but one thing they have openly and uniformly stood for recently has been opposition to the First Amendment. Harry Reid can’t open his mouth these days without some complaint about the Koch Brothers exercising their right to free speech falling out of it. Reid and 42 other Democrat | Read More »

    Rotten at the Core

    Rotten at the Core

    A lot of establishment campaign hands and consultants have been somewhat smug of late about their belief that they have beaten back the TEA Party challenge. So far this primary season, they lost a battle for an open seat in Nebraska (although they promptly pretended to have been in favor of Ben Sasse all along) and suffered a stunning defeat when Eric Cantor lost, but | Read More »

    Noel Canning Decision Exposes President Obama’s Insane Belief in his Own Primacy

    Without getting into the weeds of the Supreme Court’s unanimous opinion striking down President Obama’s “recess” appointments to the NLRB, I think it important to point out exactly what it is Obama’s reckless actions have wrought, and what they expose about his own opinions of himself. No reasonable person could have thought that Obama’s interpretation of the Recess Appointments Clause was correct. I, along with | Read More »
