Nevada ESA Decision Hopeful Step Towards Revolutionary Promise of Education Savings Accounts for Students
A Las Vegas judge dismissed the case against the nation’s first near-universal education savings account (ESA) program, which allows parents to control most or all of the funds the state spends on their child to create a personalized educational experience. This is a win for students and parents who want more control over their educational decisions. The case centered around the state’s Blaine Amendment, a | Read More »

NYT: The Obama Administration Bullied their Own IRS to Violate the Law on Obamacare
The New York Times had an astounding article yesterday about the lengths to which the Obama administration went to bully everyone to accept the dubious legality of their massive insurer bailouts; bailouts for which there was absolutely no Congressional appropriation. A Federal judge has already ruled that these payments were illegal, and the administration has appealed – principally on the basis that Congress had no standing | Read More »
Government Subsidizes, Government Warps and Distorts – Government Bails Out
My favorite joke about government and its inanity goes something like this: A guy is running late for a meeting. He’s in his car – stuck on a single lane blacktop behind a county government truck. He can’t pass – it’s a double yellow line. Every fifty yards the county truck stops and two guys jump out of the back. Right beside the road, one | Read More »
Former State Department Inspector General: Hillary Is Full Of It
Hillary Clinton’s standard go to excuse for using private email (she won’t address the use of a private server in her house) is that she’s doing nothing different than any other Secretary of State did. “They used private email, too!” Except that is not true. She is not telling the truth at all about Condoleeza Rice and with respect to Colin Powell, it was not | Read More »

In perhaps the most exotic statement of a distinctly strange election year, Mitch McConnell has compared Donald Trump to Dwight Eisenhower.

Trump has Already Proven He Would Never Nominate an Actual Conservative to SCOTUS
The last and greatest hope for Trump boosters to convince #NeverTrump folks is to hold the specter of Supreme Court nominations over their head. The reasoning goes as follows: we already know/assume Trump will fill the vacancy filled by the death of the great Antonin Scalia, and there’s a good possibility that he will get one or two more. The alleged pragmatist who is making | Read More »
Snoop Dog’s Memorial Day Message: Boycott Roots, and 12 Years a Slave
This memorial day, rapper Snoop Dog reached out via an Instagram video with a little bit of a rant about the current state of black media. Snoop, seeing Roots being played during a day that should be all about our fallen troops, was agitated that the only time they want to talk about blacks in art is to talk about how badly they were treated | Read More »
Google Doesn’t Really Care to Honor the Fallen on Memorial Day
Today is Memorial Day, and companies across the county have taken time to honor the servicemen and servicewomen who have sacrificed all for our freedom. For instance, at some Chick-fil-A locations (probably most, if not all), there is a Missing Man table complete with Bible, flag, and empty place setting arrayed to honor those who never returned home from the battlefield. I happened across one today. It’s a beautiful tribute. | Read More »
SURPRISE: Trump’s Attack on New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez was a Lie
Isn’t it weird how Trump saves his most outlandish (and least truthful) attacks for other Republicans, even though he’s already the presumptive Republican nominee and has no need to run against Republicans at all? It’s almost the guy grew up as a liberal Democrat and still is one at heart, or something. Anyway, the latest Republican to make him angrier than Hillary Clinton ever has | Read More »
