When Puppy Love Means Disaster: Pets as a Sign of Demographic Winter

dog stroller As another warning of demographic winter, the headline at the New York Post is arresting: “More young women choosing dogs over motherhood.” If you’re wondering why playgrounds around the city are so quiet and dog runs are packed, a new report has an answer: More and more US women are forgoing motherhood and getting their maternal kicks by owning handbag-size canines. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that a big drop in the number of babies born to women ages 15 Read more [...]

More Control Freak News - School Sends Girl Home for Red Hair

no redhead When I first saw this story, I assumed the girl had surprised teachers and faculty with some new exotic color of her hair.

WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL But it turns out that she has attended school with this same hair color for years! The Huffington Post reports, Hayleigh Black was all ready to start the new school year in her homeroom Read more [...]

John Kerry on Global Warming - Thinks It Is a Bigger Challenge than Iraq or Ukraine or Anything Else

John Kerry on Global Warming When it comes to John Kerry on global warming, he has clearly shown that it is his top priority. When Russia was taking over Crimea, he took time to call all his U.S. diplomats “our brave men and women on the front line.” Why? Because he wanted them to push the man-made climate change scam! If you hoped that was a fluke you need to admit it is a false hope. Now, after the Islamic State has conquered a large territory from Iraq, and is committing genocide against Christians and others, Kerry Read more [...]

Income Taxes Are About Controlling Behavior

taxes Here is an excellent article from the Heritage Foundation’s Daily Signal: “Yes, Low-Tax States Are Out-Competing High Tax States.” Arthur Laffer and I have examined the data back to 1970 in our book, “An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of States.” No matter what 10 year period we reviewed from 1970 to 2012, we found that collectively the states with no income tax outperformed the highest income-tax states in terms of population growth rates and real personal income growth. Yes, Read more [...]

Michael Brown Shooting: “Anything but Murder”?

police holstered gun According to the Western Journalism website, Additional information came out Wednesday that suggests Brown’s death was anything but a murder. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson confirmed the still unidentified officer who shot him was serious injured by the teen. I’m not willing to say whether it was murder, but I don’t understand how the writer can claim the police chief’s version “suggests Brown’s death was anything but a murder.” When the riots first broke out in Ferguson, Read more [...]

Unseen Victims and Robin Williams

nanu nanu Here is a question for you, the reader.  Should the focus of our efforts be only on getting the lost “saved”, or should we be as concerned for those being damaged by the sinful behavior of others? No one exists inside a vacuum.  The idea that our actions do not impact others is foolish and immature. Liberty can be that way.  Unchecked, it will ultimately succumb to licentiousness. Licentiousness, according to the dictionary, is “lacking legal or moral restraints; especially in regards Read more [...]

An Open Letter to the Next Generation of Patriots

Uncle Sam Dear Next Generation Patriot, If Bill Ayers…err…Barack Obama could “write” his memoir at the ripe old age of 43, then surely I can drop some knowledge on the next generation even though I’m only 41. Don’t let my age fool you. For the past 10 years I’ve been intimately involved in politics at a local, state, and federal level—everything from county elections to presidential ones. This has helped me to build an impressive list of contacts around the country. Both household names Read more [...]

Second Amendment Victory Against Michael Bloomberg’s Cash!

bloomberg A Second Amendment victory was won at the polls yesterday, despite opposition from the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

Clarke is a Democrat, but he is known for his strong support for the Second Amendment. Bloomberg wanted to defeat a “pro-gun” sheriff. The Washington Times Read more [...]

USA Today Tries to Blame Ferguson Riots on Police Militarization

rise of the warrior cop balko Anyone who reads this blog knows that we have a real problem with police militarization. We celebrate the few times that the police state is rolled back. Furthermore, if witness statements are true, then what happened to the shooting victim certainly seems to be an unjustified homicide. But USA Today’s attempt to blame the militarization of the police doesn’t make sense to me. The Pentagon might not have boots on the ground in Ferguson, Mo., where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot by Read more [...]

No Fourth Amendment around Barack Obama: In the Name of Security We Get Royalty

King-Obama_cropped The New York Post reports, “Golfers frisked as Obama arrives at Martha’s Vineyard club.” Regulars at the Vineyard Golf Club in Martha’s Vineyard were gobsmacked when President Obama unexpectedly strolled onto a nearby green and they were immediately frisked. “There was no warning he was coming,” sniffed a guest. “There was security on the way in, but no word as to why they were there.” The member added, “While eating, overlooking the golf course, guests had to stand up and be Read more [...]

Jimmy Carter Advocates Taxing Carbon Dioxide

jimmy carter Jimmy Carter is no climate scientist, but he acts like simply assuming an alleged consensus is all the authority he needs. In a world where the claims of global warming have been dismantled and the climate change believers are already practicing censorship, where major governments are refusing to cooperate with the scam, the few times counter-evidence is acknowledged it is always discounted, and idiotic pseudo-science is promulgated in mainstream news by degreed scholars, we are supposed to submit Read more [...]
