The person who came up with the script for the President’s teleprompter at the State of the Union seems to have rehashed stuff from 2014.
Perhaps the reason for the lack of originality in President Obama’s address to the nation is that he knows, like we all do, that nothing he promises really matters. Congress will not go along with his plan to inflict more economic damage on the United States.
So why come up with new material. Jack Hunter writes for Rare.Us,

A concealed carrier, who happened to be a minority, got assaulted because a young white guy saw his weapon.
I’m not saying that the attack was racially motivated, but it is hard not to suspect that racial stereotypes helped the 43-year-old make an irrational decision to tackled a 62-year-old African American. It was reported by the Tampa Bay Fox affiliate: “Man arrested after tackling shopper carrying gun.”
Hillsborough deputies arrested a man who spotted someone with a gun, followed him Read more [...]
The former governor chose a great political Bible verse for the next governor!
For this week’s commentary I just want to say that I love Jesus Christ! He is not only the greatest Teacher to ever live, but also the best political leader.
His statutes and judgments were always perfect! People, not himself, were always the top of His priority. He knew when to give harsh critique of the self righteous; and when to give necessary justice in times of political hypocrisy. He acknowledged the Read more [...]
The manipulated economy won’t end until we decide we don’t want to be manipulated anymore!
Freedom means being able to spend your time however you wish. Unfortunately that also means many will waste their lives on worthless pursuits, and stop learning once their formal education is done.
Is the Super Bowl, or Dancing with the Stars, or Angry Birds really more important than gaining a basic understanding of macroeconomics and/or civics?
I learned very little—and nothing—about Read more [...]
Middle-class economics is being invoked to plunder the middle class even more.
Yesterday morning, the Wall Street Journal reported on President Obama’s State of the Union media event. In a report that was filled with irony, the article described Mr. Obama’s “middle-class economics.”
“At this moment—with a growing economy, shrinking deficits, bustling industry, and booming energy production—we have risen from recession freer to write our own future than any other nation on Earth,” Read more [...]
Healthcare.gov is no different than any other alliance between politicians and supposedly “private” businesses. Whenever you hear about “public private partnerships” you are being told the government is selling you to a corporation for their benefit.
As we have pointed out before, Healthcare.gov was designed without basic online security, it is the latest in a tradition of exposing Americans’ private health information in an unsecure online database, and it is similar to many other Read more [...]
Don’t be too worried about the bad proposals in Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech.
New taxes and other atrocities will undoubtedly be proposed as Obama pretends he is not a lame duck President. But the good news is that he is mostly bluster and no power. The Washington Post gives us hope:
Judging by his recent history, it doesn’t really matter what President Obama says in Tuesday’s State of the Union address — Congress is going to ignore him anyway.
Mr. Obama has the second-worst Read more [...]
The government’s statements about ISIS leadership may be a con job!
Can we believe anything the government tells us? Did you see Iron Man 3?
(Yes, these questions are connected. And be careful because there is a spoiler below if your answer is “no.”)
We've been told in recent days that Abdullah Rashid al-Baghdadi is the leader of the dreaded ISIS/ISIL/IS—the Islamic "true believer" beasts slaughtering countless people across several regions of the Middle East, and inspiring radicals Read more [...]
The President should have given a eulogy for the entrepreneurial spirit the government is driving out of this country.
Here are numbers you definitely did not hear mentioned during Barack Obama's "State of the Nation" blathering.
Allow me to make some predictions, writing this before the speech occurs. If you listen to the President tonight (or rather, if you listened last night) you can decide how accurate I am.
He will extol his personal wisdom—so much beyond that of mere mortals Read more [...]
The government has been stealing raisins since the Depression.
Back in July 2013, Dave Jolly introduced readers to a Mark Horne (no relation) of Raisin Valley Farms in Kerman, California. He wrote,
In 2002, Horne decided to stop giving part of his crop to the feds and has continued to do so every year since. In response, the government is saying that he now owes them 1.2 million pounds of raisins and he is facing fines of $650,000 dollars.
Horne contends that the Marketing Order confiscation Read more [...]
Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush don’t seem that attractive to the voters.
One of my favorite funny moments from the campaign season leading up to the 2008 presidential elections was this one:
Back in 2007, Giuliani was pushed forward as a serious contender, “a proven leader.” And yet what happened? He completely failed to gain significant voters. He never had a chance.
That’s how much our elites know about what really matters to Republican voters.
So now that Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney Read more [...]
Traffic police obviously have immense authority since they can always find a reason to pull you over… but a hamburger?
People can be distracted while they drive for all sorts of reason. Children in the back seat are one example. Mobile smartphones are another. Looking at something interesting as you drive by is yet another. Obviously, if someone is driving dangerously, a traffic cop is within his duties to stop the person. It seems to me that a warning would usually be more than adequate in Read more [...]
