Buying Birth Control For Others Is an Obligation of Citizenship?

hobby lobby Supreme Court Justice (sadly) Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been out and about propagandizing about birth control. In her bizarre world all the widespread availability of contraceptives at cheap prices in the United States don’t count for anything. Unless women have the state forcing other people to pay for their birth control, then there is a grave miscarriage of justice. Katie Couric on Yahoo! News provided her with her latest soap box. According to CNS News, “Some people say there’s Read more [...]

Thanks to Barack Obama’s Dictatorship We Have Corpses on the Border.

obama encourages immigration Obama’s dictatorship is costing the lives of young people crossing the border.

India Rejects U.S. Economic Leadership

india This is the global story-of-the-week... the month... perhaps the year. That rumbling you're about to feel... is a tectonic shift in the realm of finance and markets—this Administration has succeeded in a crowning isolation of the United States from virtually every up-and-coming player in world trade. From Zero Hedge: “India Slams US Global Hegemony By Scuttling Global Trade Deal, Puts Future Of WTO In Doubt.” Of course, for India the problem with a Japanese alliance is that it would Read more [...]

Government Porn Viewers Demonstrate Why We Need Sequester Cuts

reid on Marine tragedy and sequester Remember the sequester cuts? It was said only about 17% of Federal workers were actually furloughed, yet some made it seem as if the nation would grind to a halt with those small reductions. Well, given this report, how about we make a permanent, immediate 15% cut to every department. My guess is that a majority of us are tired of reading stories about government workers who sit around—sometimes for years—with literally nothing to do. That means there are too many people on the payroll, and Read more [...]

The Argument that Congress should impeach Barack Obama

Impeach Should Congress impeach Barack Obama? This author lays out both the tactical considerations in advance of the Fall elections, and the bare necessity, in light of the perpetual damage inescapably inflicted upon the nation if he is not. Yes, we all know Harry Reid and his cohorts in the Senate are so thoroughly corrupt they would never vote to convict, and to remove from office, but that is not a reason to refrain from impeachment by the House. As this writer correctly notes: After this election, Read more [...]

U.N. Contemplates Forced Migration of Californians

BorderConflict Never let a good crisis go to waste, especially if you caused it in the first place. Isn't that the motto of modern liberalism? We're definitely seeing that slogan put into action by leftists, from the White House to the State House to the City Hall in the case of the border crisis. As wave after wave of illegal immigrants -- at least a fifth of whom are gang members and assorted criminals rather than innocent "children" -- have invaded our country, politicians on the left side of the aisle Read more [...]

IRS Gave Lois Lerner a Bonus to Make Her Want to Keep Up Her Work

lois lerner The Weekly Standard reports that the IRS gave Lois Lerner a bonus, specifically a “retention bonus”—an incentive for her to keep her job harrassing, obstructing, and burdening conservative taxpayers whose money was used to offer her that bonus. Media coverage of yesterday's latest development in the Lois Lerner saga focused on her colorful description of conservatives as "crazies" and "a--holes" in emails released by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich).

Wisconsin Supreme Court Upholds Defeat of Unions

scott walker The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled yesterday in favor of the end of “collective bargaining.” This is wonderful news. The Wisconsin legislature ended the right to collective bargaining for unions in 2011. While unions portray this practice as a means for gaining power against employers, that is an illusion. “Collective bargaining” is a means of using power against other workers—specifically workers who do not belong to the union and are willing to work for less. The way unions feel Read more [...]

The Stock Market Crash Could Cut Values in Half

stock market crash Not everyone will call yesterday’s drop a stock market crash… yet. But now it is admitted that a crash might be a reality. Henry Blodgett begins his post in Business Insider by saying that he is not predicting a crash: After meandering higher for most of the year, the stock market is now sputtering. That's triggering chatter about a minor "correction," which many people believe is long overdue. And maybe that's what we're at the start of, a minor correction. Or maybe this is just a blip, Read more [...]
