More Proof Recessions Affect Birth Rate

birth-rate Several sources have shown that, as the economy tanks, the birth rate also sinks. A new study not only confirms this, but suggests that a substantial number of women will never have a baby due to the pressure of the recession. An Associated Press story was posted by Breitbart.com under the headline: “Study: Recessions Can Postpone Motherhood Forever.” A massive new study suggests that for some U.S. women, living through a recession can mean they will never have children. In fact, the Read more [...]

Yes, There Are Good Cops… Who Other Cops Try to Jail

Firing-Police One of these good cops, Adam Basford, may still be successfully jailed by the corrupt thugs who drove him from the force. Here is the nation’s best police abuse journalist, Will Griggs, on Basford’s training and ethics: The source of Basford’s trouble is the fact that he didn’t define his professional identity in tribal terms. “My oath was to the public, not to protect abusive fellow officers,” he declares. “I swore an oath to the U.S. Constitution as an Air Force officer, Read more [...]

Woman Jailed for a Spoon before Charges Dropped

Huff A story about a woman jailed for spoon, seems like it should come from another country. But it happened in the U.S. The police are insisting that they were merely “acting in good faith,” but their victim suffered a great deal due to a false accusation. KRON 4 reports, “Woman Busted for Possession of SpaghettiO’s Sauce May Sue.” A Florida woman may pursue legal action against police and prosecutors after she spent more than a month in jail for possession of SpaghettiOs. Police Read more [...]

Killing People by Drone Still Has Consequences

Drone War—killing people—should never be easy. It actually gives me a measure of hope to hear that some of our drone pilots are experiencing psychological "trauma" from what they do (and, actually, I really worry about the ones who aren't!). As the Washington Times tells us: “Emotional toll taxes military drone operators too.” President Barack Obama has assured Americans he opposes sending U.S. ground troops to crush Islamic extremists in Iraq and Syria - well aware the country is not ready Read more [...]

Cops Stop Islamist Beheading in Oklahoma?

cross Islamist Beheading is a Theological Problem. Why do Muslims kill Christians, and cut off people's heads? "This is just what we do." –Oklahoma Muslim to co-worker he was reportedly promising to behead, and put the picture on Facebook. Wow... who wants to be on the PR team for CAIR right now? "Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. And they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me.

Are We Fighting ISIS or Helping Terrorists?

bomb syria Barack Obama's strategy in fighting ISIS may end up helping terrorists. I am not referring to the insanity of training and arming militants in Syria on the grounds that they are moderates who will fight ISIS rather than collaborate with them. That is a separate issue. I’m referring to our bombing campaign. It would be one thing if we had a plan for swift and overwhelming victory (and that plan actually worked). But that is not going to happen. Remember what Barack Obama said: My fellow Read more [...]

Democrat Senator Denies Obama Can Make War on Syria

Tim Kaine It is not every day that we see a Democrat Senator criticize President Barack Obama for violating the Constitution. Frankly, we don’t see it enough from Republican Senators. So this is refreshing: According to the National Review, Virginia Democratic senator Tim Kaine has been the leading voice arguing that a new authorization for the use of military force is necessary for the president’s military campaign against the Islamic State, and he reiterated that message on Sunday. “It Read more [...]

Are Republicans Sticking Us with Higher Taxes?

war obama It seems that Republicans now consider higher taxes beyond real reform. Politico.com, being a statist rag, tried to make the headline as biased as possible: “Republicans shift away from tax cutting mania.” Something is missing from this year’s midterm elections. Republicans are talking about ISIL and President Barack Obama and the Affordable Care Act and Harry Reid. But what they aren’t talking about? Slashing tax rates. Though tax cuts have been a mainstay of their campaigns since at Read more [...]

Public Land: Government Hijacks Un-owned Property

forest service Of course, the government claims that public land is owned because the government claims to own the land in trust for the “public.” But holding the land for “everyone” turns out to be the same as owning it for one’s own selfish interests. In order to claim ownership of land, people normally have to do something with it. This is commonly called “homesteading.” Governments have never recognized this limitation. When the Spanish explorer who reached the Pacific Ocean claimed the Read more [...]
