The most expensive match in boxing history is now behind us. Manny Pacquiao’s under-dog status, his charisma were not enough to defeat the undefeatable Floyd Mayweather. Floyd is now 48-0. One more victory puts him in the same league as the legendary Rocky Marciano.
But the things behind the scene of this magnanimous match is what has caught the attention of many in the media. Mayweather is an extraordinary fighter. He happens to be also an extraordinary domestic abuser. His well and hideously Read more [...]
I’m not sure why ISIS boasts about being defeated, but hopefully they will have more opportunities to do so.
Somehow, if I were ISIS, I wouldn't be bragging about this one.
You "sent" two armed yahoos in (jihadis... yahoos... same thing), and they marvelously succeeded in shooting one guard in the ankle. Then these mighty Islamic warriors ended up aerated multiple times and bleeding in the street, dead.
I guess we're supposed to be afraid of such awesome displays of military Read more [...]
Man-made global warming would not make big government competent to fix it.
If you think that just because you are not personally a climate scientist you therefore have no right to an opinion about anything Al Gore says the government should do, you need to think again.
Ryan McMaken has written an excellent essay at Mises.org that points out the political fallacy. He writes in part:
It seems that for the global warming lobby, all that is necessary to set everything right is to hand control Read more [...]
African Americans and Tea Party Conservatives would both be better off to stop fighting each other and to help each other instead.
Will there come a day when we realize we're fighting a common foe?
(Thanks to the Personal Liberty website for the cartoon.)
The sad thing is that those represented on the left... feel the oppression is because the wrong people have power (funny, since all of the major uprisings and problems have been in Democratic strongholds, but... I digress), while those Read more [...]
District Attorney John Chisholm is no better than an organized crime boss… because he IS a criminal running an organization, the state.
Meet yet another poster child for severely limited government: Milwaukee County, Wisconsin District Attorney, John Chisholm.
Here’s a review of his actions from the Daily Signal: “Wisconsin Home Invasions: When the Government Upends Democracy.”
These raids—engineered by Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm—represented nothing less than Read more [...]
When we talk about muck-raking journalism, we usually use the term as a metaphor! CBS News got a lot closer to literal.
So... a Texas city councilman forgot to turn his microphone off when he stepped away to go to the restroom, and CBS News thought it "newsworthy" enough to post an article about it, with a video and audio of the event. (I will not post a link!)
I have been asked what political party the councilman belonged to. Personally, I don't care what label he wears... the only one that Read more [...]
While many Americans report suffering financial emergencies, a sizeable number have no emergency fund saved up.
It seems like I post a story about this every other month because new studies keep coming out that set forth the same depressing facts, Americans are not prepared because they don’t or can’t save money.
I always post about such news stories for two reasons. First, I want to point out that the media story about an Obama recovery is not very credible. We are not living in a growing Read more [...]
While GDP barely improved, Obamacare spending has exploded.
As I mentioned recently, mainstream news outlets are admitting that the economy is grinding to a halt. A Washington Post article revealed that the economy only grew a fifth of a percentage point in the last quarter.
The gross domestic product grew between January and March at an annualized rate of 0.2 percent, the U.S. Commerce Department said, adding to the picture of an economy braking sharply after accelerating for much of last year. Read more [...]
Joan Walsh pushed the racist police explanation by claiming that everyone knows that black cops are under the control of white cops.
I have complained before about alleged police brutality issues being smudged into race issues. The Freddie Gray story is another example of how making the issue primarily about racism doesn’t fit with the facts . Of the six policemen accused of wrongdoing, three are white and three are black.
This has given us some interesting rationalizations by Liberals.
Conservative Read more [...]
The Navy Secretary announces we must have more women soldiers for the Navy and the Marines.
CNS News reports, “Navy Secretary: 'We Don't Have Enough Women in Navy or Marine Corps'”
"We don't have enough women in either the Navy or the Marine Corps, and we've got to do a better job of recruiting and we've got to do a better job of retaining those women," Navy Secretary Raymond Mabus Jr. said on Thursday.
He told a gathering at the National Press Club that he's in the process of changing the Read more [...]
Barack Obama plays the education president by extolling school for children but fights school choice and uses private school.
Here is how President Barack Obama’s weekly address began on Saturday (including the introductory explanation):
In this week’s address, the President reiterated his commitment to expanding access to education, and to spreading the joy of reading to more children and young adults. Earlier this week the President announced two new efforts that, building on the progress Read more [...]
