Under Obama, how is the recovery working out for African Americans?
Not very well.
Despite (much exaggerated) “good news” about employment, not even that rigged improvement has been able to touch that minority group.
As CNS News reports, “Employment Situation Improves in October—Except for African Americans.”
The employment situation in October improved in every way for most Americans, except for African Americans, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

The new Senator-elect from West Virginia points out Barack Obama’s excuse which he is using to ignore the election. As the Washington Times reports, “Obama didn’t get the message from voters, says new GOP senator.”
Sen.-elect Shelley Moore Capito said Sunday that President Obama did “not really” get the message that voters sent in the midterm elections when they gave Republicans complete control of Congress.
“When he says he hears two-thirds of the people who are not voting, what Read more [...]
As far as we know, a newly discovered antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea has not come to the U.S. yet. But one could easily argue that, as far as we know, it is already here. Given our lax to non-existent border policy, it is only a matter of time.
LiveScience.com reports, “New Drug-Resistant Strain of Gonorrhea in Australia.”
A new strain of the sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea that is resistant to multiple antibiotics has been identified in Australia, according to a new Read more [...]
Unlike real families, a same sex couple can’t have children. Whether they are two men or two women, they can only have children by in some way acquiring rights over a child who was produced by no more than one of them. I know this is hard to believe, but children can only come into being through a mother and a father. So for a same sex couple to “have” a child, someone had to have their parental rights terminated. Same sex couples having children are inherently parasitic to heterosexual couples.
Thus, Read more [...]
At least in some careers, men and women who have more children outperform those who have no children or only one child.
I don’t often cite the work of a Federal Reserve Bank with any appreciation, but in this case I have to admit I am happy for a recent study by the St. Louis Federal Reserve. Based on their data they argue that both fathers and mothers are more productive than childless men and women. It even seems that, in some cases, the more children one has the more productive one becomes Read more [...]
The Kissing Bug involves yet another disease coming from Mexico and South America.
First, it was Enterovirus-68, which has killed and paralyzed many American children, and that was almost certainly brought into the country—and widely spread—by Barack Obama's foolish actions in regards to Central and South American “youths” who crossed our borders illegally.
Now, let us welcome the deadly “Kissing Bug”!
As the Daily Mail reports, “‘Kissing bug’ disease infects OVER Read more [...]
We need food freedom, not a food dictator.
This editorial in the Washington Post has some truthful statements but it starts with a false premise that it later retracts without acknowledging the discrepancy.
The premise is that there is no food policy in the United States. It is embodied in the headline: “How a national food policy could save millions of American lives.”
The food industry is the largest sector of our economy; food touches everything from our health to the environment, climate Read more [...]
With the announcement of doubling of troops, it is clear that the White House is sending us back to Iraq.
Because we made Iraq unstable and unable to defend itself from terrorists, we are now sending a surge of American troops back into that quagmire. While we are assured that they are being sent to serve in a “non-combat” role, it is hard to see how that will work when they are being sent not only to advise but to “assist” the Iraqi army.
CNS News reports: “Iraq War II: Obama Read more [...]
The government’s free phone program is corrupt, by definition.
I know this will shock you. According to a local CBS Denver station, “Government’s Free Phone Program Riddled With Abuse, Fraud.”
The $2 billion a year Lifeline program has handed out more than 13 million free cellphone plans across the country in the first six months of this year. In Colorado, the program handed out more than 117,000 free cellphone plans in the first half of this year, or about 20,000 cellphones every Read more [...]
As you are probably aware, the IRS claimed that the Lois Lerner emails got lost, without any back up, through a computer hard drive crash. In fact, this happened to several other employees.
The idea that federal records could disappear without a trace, records that the IRS was legally obligated to store, seemed insane. It is insane. So Congress ordered the IRS to search for the files to see if they could retrieve all or some of them.
Nothing turned up…
Because the IRS never looked.
As Read more [...]
Obamacare compromise is one of the big things that conservatives need to watch for in this new Senate. Dr. Milton Wolf ran for the Senate seat in Kansas but Republican Pat Roberts won. I went to Roberts’ senatorial website and thought he had some good ideas (and some not so good) about healthcare.
But is Roberts the Senator planning on being the conservative that Roberts the threatened candidate sounded like? On his twitter account, Wolf posted an image of Roberts own claim while he was running Read more [...]
The headline from Rare.US says it all: “House Republican vows to block D.C. weed legalization.”
I realize that many Republicans have no problem empowering the government to “keep us safe” from our own choices. But it is an entirely different thing when they disregard a legal and local election and overturn the results.
Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) isn’t happy about Washington, D.C.’s decision to fully legalize marijuana Tuesday and has vowed to block that referendum from becoming Read more [...]
