Everyone must bow to the FDA except abortionists.
If you disregard the Food and Drug Administration directives you typically lose a great deal. The FDA has real power.
Unless it wants to control how abortifacients are used. At that point its authority is suddenly worthless.
As LifeSite News reports: “Supreme Court allows abortionists to violate FDA guidelines when using RU-486.”
Abortionists are free to continue violating FDA guidelines to save money dispensing the abortion-inducing Read more [...]
This is the result of Western unfaithfulness.
Alexander J. Motyl writes in Aljazeera America:
Even more destabilizing than the invasion of Crimea was Putin’s claim that he had the right to march into “the territory of Ukraine” in defense of Russian citizens. Here’s the entire statement of his request to Russia’s Council of the Federation, which immediately granted him his wishes:
“In connection with the extraordinary situation that has developed in Ukraine and the threat to Read more [...]
NSA Dirt Being Used to Blackmail Republicans Would Explain A lot.
Yesterday I saw this tweet from Drudge with a picture:
This would explain a lot... And my hunch is that it has application to John Roberts, too. Would men sell out the entire country to protect their personal reputations?
Yes... yes, they would. They've done so throughout history, and it's certainly possible that's exactly what's happened in the past few years on so many key decisions. With the abused power of the NSA, Read more [...]
What would be effective counter-terrorism if the terrorism is driven by false religion?
Like many of you I followed the news about the hostage-taking and killing on the news yesterday. Here is the Daily Mail’s description of the leading perp:
The man responsible is self-proclaimed Islamic cleric, who lives in southwest Sydney after coming to Australia from Iran as a refugee in 1996.
He first came to the attention of authorities when he started sending hate mail to the families of Australian Read more [...]
My snarky side finds it incredibly rich that a denizen of Hollywood should lecture anyone about being "morally treasonous." Shall we run down the list of productions out of that town, generally, or from Sony, specifically, that have assisted in undermining the morals of the nation and the world?

But moving past that which is perversely enjoyable to what is uncomfortable... Aaron Sorkin makes several very good points Read more [...]
Government nutritionists have been told to stop talking about "sustainability."
Even though I don’t believe in evolution, I am very appreciative of Robb Wolf’s work on ancestral eating. Just read the testimonials and you will find many people who have been helped, not only for bodyweight issues, but also in a variety of auto-immunity and other health problems.
But yesterday on his Facebook profile he shares this link, saying:
I know folks do not find the sustainability schtick as sexy Read more [...]
Ferguson plans more municipal piracy: to increase revenue by increasing police ticketing.
As I wrote about awhile back, much of the anger at police in Ferguson was arguably not driven by stories of police brutality or excessive force. The anger was driven by a patchwork of small towns that generate revenue by repeatedly fining people who don’t have means to pay. The result is an inordinate number of people with arrest warrants in various towns who have not committed serious crimes, and occasionally Read more [...]
Free clinics are closing down because donors assume Obamacare has eliminated the needs. It hasn’t.
Ahh, another victory for the Health Care insurers and bureaucrats, thanks to Obamacare!
As the Wall Street Journal reports: “Health Law Hurts Some Free Clinics.”
Some free health clinics serving the uninsured are shutting their doors because of funding shortfalls and low demand they attribute to the Affordable Care Act’s insurance expansion.
Nearly a dozen clinics that have closed Read more [...]
The NFL expects taxpayers to foot the bill for insurance so that they can make immense private profits on the Super Bowl.
So here’s the story from Businessweek: “The Unexpected Threat to Super Bowl XLIX.”
If you’ve already bought tickets for Super Bowl XLIX or are looking forward to watching it with your friends and family, you may be surprised to learn that there is a chance it might not be played. Congress first needs to make a decision on renewing a piece of legislation that you Read more [...]
While extreme weather is constantly invoked as the result of global warming, there hasn’t been much of it lately.
Every severe weather event is pounced upon as "proof" of manmade Global Warming/Climate Change/The Government Needs to Save Us.
But then comes this, one of many such evidences, reported in USA Today: “Tame tornadoes: Quietest 3 years for twisters on record.”
The U.S. experienced fewer tornadoes in the past three years than any similar span since accurate records began Read more [...]
I think Lynn Beisner is quite right to question what people are thinking when they thank God for being spared from harm. But I still think thanking Honda, not God, as she advocates in the Washington Post, is a pretty poor trade-off. Thanking God may have implications many people don’t want to face, but it is still the right thing to do.
Her headline: “When my son survived a serious accident, I didn’t thank God. I thanked Honda.”
Last Friday night, a semi-trailer pushed the car my Read more [...]
Government debt has grown so large that it is now mathematically impossible for the government to pay it back.
Sports fans are familiar with the calculations in which your team is "mathematically-eliminated" from any possibility of making the playoffs (something Chicago Cubs fans typically process in early summer, but... maybe it'll take a little longer in 2015?).
So how should one react when it becomes mathematically impossible for your entire nation to repay its debts?
