What is sex designed for? From this bad news it seems almost like we weren't designed to hop from bed-to-bed. Imagine that.
From the Atlanta CBS station: “CDC: 110 Million Americans Have STDs At Any Given Time.”
While the national media focus on the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and the patient in Dallas, the CDC is reminding Americans that sexually transmitted diseases are an ongoing but hidden epidemic.
In the United States, nearly 20 million cases of new STD infections are reported Read more [...]
IRS harassment of conservatives has been an ongoing scandal. Right in the middle of it, the IRS has begun auditing conservative groups—first, Breitbart and then the maker of a movie about Obamacare.
I’m sure that is nothing more than a coincidence, right?
The Washington Times reports,
Logan Clements, producer of “Sick and Sicker: ObamaCare Canadian Style,” announced via press release Tuesday that he is being audited for the first time ever.
The news comes one month Read more [...]
By allowing the usurpations of lower courts to overrule the states, the Supreme Court homosexual marriage decision imposes an impossible interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment.
When Courts overrule the overwhelming will of the People we should be afraid. Even if the current decision is one you like, when the Law is Lawless, all it takes is a change in who is sitting in the seat of power to turn the tables once again.
In other words, Ted Cruz is exactly right in his commentary in the Read more [...]
It seems impossible that a New York Times reporter would claim that President Barack Obama hates the press. But according to a local news story in Maine, that is exactly what James Risen claimed.
Risen was at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, to receive the Elijah Perish Lovejoy award for courageous journalism.
The courage is mainly demonstrated because he might go to jail because he won’t give the government the names of his sources.
“Today, the U.S. government treats whistle-blowers Read more [...]
When is someone called to Christian martyrdom and when is someone called to defend the innocent?
Sometimes there are no easy answers. It's also a fact, that one-size-fits-all is rarely true. I am not a pacifist, but I refuse to condemn Canon White and his fellow Christians for their own principled stand to be as lambs to the slaughter.
I thought of this while reading John Zmirak’s piece in Human Events, “‘Vicar of Baghdad’ Unarmed on the Front Lines, Standing Up to ISIS.”
He Read more [...]
By allowing Lower Courts to override state governments by imposing homosexual marriage, the Supreme Court has detonated a nuclear warhead in the culture war.
People are acting like yesterday’s Supreme Court decision was a “surprise.” The only thing surprising was that they had enough votes (or too few votes) so that the cases could be refused. Other than that, it was completely predictable. It was the best way for the Supreme Court to fasten homosexual marriage onto the culture.
Consider Read more [...]
The government has obviously failed to revoke the passports of American jihadists who have left the U.S. to join forces with the Islamic State. That makes no sense!
In CNS News, we read, “FBI Director: Americans Fighting With ISIS 'Entitled' to Come Back.”
FBI Director James Comey told CBS's "60 Minutes" that "a dozen or so" Americans are fighting with terrorists in Syria; "yes," he knows who they are; and they are "entitled to come back" unless their passport is revoked; and if they Read more [...]
I wish I could blame this on a specific government agency or authority, but the problem is widespread cultural liability insanity. Here’s the way KEPR reported it: “Richland School District Is Saying Goodbye to Swings.”
Many playgrounds have replaced cement with cedar or rubber surfacing. The cement was just too dangerous. Now, swings are in the line of fire.
Swings are being phased out of Richland schools. The district says pressure from insurance companies over the liability is part Read more [...]
When it comes to charitable giving, the rich get richer while the poor help others.
The headline of this piece on a recent report put out by the Chronicle of Philanthropy emphasized the religious angle and geography (“Report: Which states give most to charity? The ones with the most church-goers.”). But there is another interesting angle on data that is also included in the story. It starts with an observation on income levels.
According to an analysis of IRS data, in the years spanning Read more [...]
The Problem with the Combat Endurance Test Is That It Doesn’t Provide Feminist Results
From Newser.com: “3 Women Pass Marines' Endurance Test.”
Three women have a chance at making history in the US military after passing the Marines' grueling endurance test for infantry officers, reports the Washington Post. This was just the first step, however, explains the Christian Science Monitor. Their passing grade in the Combat Endurance Test merely allows the women to move on and try to complete Read more [...]
The government cocaine connection is real, but the reporter who publicized the story must still be attacked, after already being driven to suicide.
As I’ve noted, Hollywood is about to vindicate the marginalized and reviled reporter, Gary Webb, in a feature movie starring Jeremy Renner. This means many in the media must do some serious spin, since they acted to discredit and destroy the career of Gary Webb.
Thus, the New York Times movie review:
If someone told you today that there was Read more [...]
