    The Emma Sulkowicz Generation

    The Emma Sulkowicz Generation

    Columbia University recently held its commencement ceremonies, which gives us all another reason to talk about one of the worst people in America, Emma Sulkowicz. For those who are unfamiliar with this particular sordid tale, Emma Sulkowicz was a Columbia university student who claimed that she was brutally raped by a friend named Paul Nungesser. There was only one one problem with Sulkowicz’s tale – it | Read More »

    Repeal Obamacare Through Reconciliation

    Repeal Obamacare Through Reconciliation

    I know there are lots of folks who are tired of hearing about repealing Obamacare. There are reasons, however, for the GOP in Congress to continue beating the repeal drum. First, the law remains persistently and broadly unpopular, which is almost historically unprecedented for a law that was essentially billed as an entitlement program. Second, the law continues to have a ruinous effect on employment | Read More »

    The Culture War is Upon You, Whether You Want it or Not

    The Culture War is Upon You, Whether You Want it or Not

    With the fall of Ramadi to ISIS over the weekend, many foreign policy analysts are scrambling to assign and apportion blame between George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and various other recent key players for the slow-rolling failure of the current Iraqi state. I guess these questions are interesting within the context of political supremacy here in the United States as between Republicans and Democrats – | Read More »

    Jeb Bush’s Polish Problem

    Jeb Bush's Polish Problem

    We are noticing a disturbing trend in the nascient days of the Jeb Bush campaign – the trend being that the candidate gets embarrassingly caught flat footed by questions that he should have without a doubt seen coming. The first of these instances came during the ongoing negotiations over the Iran nuclear deal, when Iran was basically the top news item on every news story. | Read More »

    Judd Gregg Illustrates the Need for GOP Primary Reform

    Judd Gregg Illustrates the Need for GOP Primary Reform

    I happened to stumble across this piece by occasional Obama defender and former New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg which ostensibly defends New Hampshire’s right to continue to hold the nation’s first primary in perpetuity. In reality, the entire piece is actually an examination of the fact that New Hampshire historically has had an outsized effect on Presidential elections, not that it should have one. Essentially, Gregg’s “argument,” if | Read More »

    Arrested for being Black on a Wednesday Night

    Arrested for being Black on a Wednesday Night

    Here we go again. Via the Denver Post, here comes video out of Colorado Springs of a stop between police and two black men. It appears not to be in controversy at this point that ultimately, the police pulled these two individuals over for a cracked windshield. You watch yourself and see if you can justify why it had to be that, for demanding to | Read More »

    Sometimes Violence is Apparently the Answer

    Sometimes Violence is Apparently the Answer

    The last couple of years have really seen a remarkable about-face from the hippies and those who espouse the recycled hippie ideals in the modern left. Used to be, we all (with the exception of a few quacks) accepted that violence and intimidation weren’t legitimate methods of achieving political change. Even if we agreed with the change that was sought, we had to condemn anyone | Read More »

    Six Baltimore Cops Charged in Freddie Gray Death

    Six Baltimore Cops Charged in Freddie Gray Death

    In a truly unusual and unexpected turn of events, police officers have been charged in connection with injuries sustained to a suspect in their custody. Per the Baltimore Sun, the six officers in charge of Freddie Gray’s detention have been charged with manslaughter/homicide in connection with his death. Already, I have seen a lot of conservatives on twitter decry this decision as politically motivated and | Read More »

    Republicans, Democrats and their Talismans

    Republicans, Democrats and their Talismans

    I am reminded of the story in 1 Samuel 4, when the Israelites had just lost a battle to the Philistines and wanted to turn the tide in their seemingly neverending war. Someone in the Israelite camp got the genius idea that they could really turn this thing around if they brought out the Ark of the Covenant and toted it into battle – because | Read More »

    Bob Corker, Craven Moron

    Bob Corker, Craven Moron

    It is difficult, in this hyper partisan era, to find areas of agreement between the chattering heads on the right and on the left. However, one thing that almost everyone can agree on is this: The Corker-Cardin Iran bill is an especially moronic display of political cowardice, even for modern day Senators. The first major problem with the Corker-Cardin bill is that it serves absolutely | Read More »

    And Now for some Stories that Have Nothing to Do With Baltimore

    And Now for some Stories that Have Nothing to Do With Baltimore

    All the news seems to be focused on Baltimore these days, with lots of commentary about the riots and/or the news coverage thereof. So I thought it would be good to have some coverage of some stories that have absolutely nothing to do with Baltimore whatsoever – just completely unrelated things that do not at all pertain to the civil unrest there at all. First | Read More »

    Rubio vs. The Field

    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 »
