Waitress Fired because She Forgot Table Number and Described Customers

receipt It is now a firing offense for a waitress to describe customers in order to serve them if she refers to their race. If you have a low-paying job serving people who are, typically, making more money than you, you had better watch yourself and remember the rules. You should also try to find a boss who isn’t a coward ready to punish you the moment such a customer is offended. This Fox 2 News story demonstrates the risks: “ On Sunday, FOX 2 received a photo from viewers angry about a Read more [...] Continue reading →

Rolling Stone Admits White House Advisor Role in False Rape Story

feminism rape A White House advisor introduced the magazine to the unreliable source. Yes, lying journalists often are the consequence of a lying worldview, but they are also sometimes servants for political propagandists. The Washington Times reports, “Rolling Stone says White House advisor introduced U.Va. rape accuser.” Rolling Stone’s legal filing late last week came in response to a $7.5 million libel lawsuit filed by UVa. Dean Nicole Eramo, who claims she was unfairly depicted as the “chief Read more [...] Continue reading →

No ISIS link? Try Islam!

tea party terrorists The headlines are saying that officials are finding no ISIS link in the case of the murders committed by Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez. Really? I realize that lots of Muslims don’t commit acts of violence. Claiming a substantial link between Islam and terrorism or violence does not, in any way, imply that all Muslims are guilty. But it is still blind and dangerous to refuse to actually deal with Islam as an increased risk. Statistics are not lying. It is especially hypocritical when there is Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Road to Moral Anarchy

crown The only way to pull us back from moral anarchy is to preach that Jesus is Lord. This past week our family has enjoyed berry picking. The wild raspberry harvest came in this week and they are delicious. When the sun strikes them they look like ruby jewels hanging in groups from the raspberry bushes. You can tell from the colors which are the ripest, a deep burgundy instead of candy apple red. Some of the fruit is so ripe when you simply touch it; it falls into your hand. Sometimes they are Read more [...] Continue reading →

Huffington Post Doesn’t Get It: Politics IS Entertainment

donald_trump The Huffington Post has moved reports on Trump to the Entertainment page. But they are all Entertainment! By now you have probably seen the announcement of the Huffington Post about Donald Trump: After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won't report on Trump's campaign as part of The Huffington Post's political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump's Read more [...] Continue reading →

Corporations Can Be Good and Generous because Sometimes People Are

southwest airlines And yes, that’s because corporations are people, for better and worse. Everyone pretends that the phrase “corporations are people” refers to the legal concept of “corporate personhood.” It doesn’t. It simply means that  corporations consist of people acting in cooperation. That’s why it is important to realize the restricting the “rights of corporations” is really an attack on people. The only way my writing appears on your screen right now is because of some corporations. Read more [...] Continue reading →

Franklin Graham Calls for Completely Closing the Border to Islam

franklin graham The position of Franklin Graham is simply not rational or conservative. This post from Franklin Graham came across my Facebook feed, and I’m pretty appalled by it. Four innocent Marines (United States Marine Corps) killed and three others wounded in ‪#‎Chattanooga yesterday including a policeman and another Marine—all by a radical Muslim whose family was allowed to immigrate to this country from Kuwait. We are under attack by Muslims at home and abroad. We should stop all immigration Read more [...] Continue reading →

Think Liberals Oppose Profiling? Andrea Mitchell Doesn’t

andrea mitchell When Liberals claim they are against profiling, they are only opposed to the use of reason. Stupid stereotypes that serve liberal fantasies are fine with them. Wow. Listen to and watch what happens as soon as this witness tells Andrea Mitchell  (at about 44 seconds in) that Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez “obviously” was “devout,” and that he was Muslim and that he or his sister (I’m not clear which or both) “always talked about religion.” Mitchell’s next question to Valerie Levitt, Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Global Warming Stall Is About to Turn 21

frozen al gore According to satellite measurements, there is still no global warming—for two decades and counting. Michael Bastasch writes at the Daily Caller, “Satellites: Earth Is Nearly In Its 21st Year Without Global Warming.” After September of this year, the Earth will be entering its 21st year without statistically significant warming trend, according to satellite-derived temperature data. Since September 1994, University of Alabama in Huntsville’s satellite temperature data has shown no statistically Read more [...] Continue reading →

Without Government, Who Would Warn Us to not Kiss Chickens?

cdc logo The Centers for Disease Control has really issued a warning to farmers to make sure they don’t kiss chickens. Your tax dollars at work. Here’s a story from the io9 sci-fi website: “Actual CDC Warning to Farmers: "Don't Kiss Chickens" Sound advice, CDC! But, uh, just why did you guys feel the need to issue this warning in the first place? It’s because we’re in the midst of a series of small Salmonella outbreaks, with just under 200 cases reported thus far. A handful of these were Read more [...] Continue reading →

Greek Banks: We Will Let You Give Us Your Money Now!

bank teller cash Why would anyone trust the Greek banks with their money when they are still limited in what they can withdraw? This seems like an amazing con game to me. Can you imagine going for days when you were only permitted to take a little bit from your bank, and ATMs were often out of cash, before reading this headline? “Greece: Banks Can Reopen ... for Deposits.” Then comes the tagline: “Deposits Are Welcome, Finance Chief Says.” Greek banks will reopen Monday after a three-week closure, Read more [...] Continue reading →

Alaska Governor Follows Obama’s Example: Uses Pen to Make Policy

medicaid The Alaska Governor unilaterally expands Medicaid after the legislature wouldn’t do it. Barack Obama famously (or infamously) said that, if Congress refused to do his will, he had a pen and phone and would act without them. Now we find the Alaska governor is following the President’s example. The headline at Newser.com makes the issue clear: “What Legislature? Alaska Gov Expands Medicaid Solo.” Alaska's legislature didn't move to expand Medicaid, so Gov. Bill Walker is doing it on Read more [...] Continue reading →
