I should have realized, when Richard Branson publicly claimed he would no longer eat beef, that there was a government push coming. Sure enough, our government overlords are doing all they can to turn us into vegetarians. As the Daily Beacon reports,
The federal committee drafting nutrition guidelines continued to stress the importance of moving Americans towards plant-based diets on Friday, arguing that eating less meat and fewer snacks can save the planet.

We live in a time when the populace is obviously getting sick of legalized baby-killing, as is reflected by what is happening in many states to restrict it (not nearly enough, but it’s better than nothing). Even pro-abortion liberals are finding themselves targeted by Planned Parenthood merely for trying to prevent the deaths of women at the hands of abortionists (ignoring, of course, that many girl babies are slaughtered).
But, of course, Portland, Oregon, is way too hard-hearted to soften Read more [...]
I’ve mentioned before that some people are talking up Jeb Bush as a candidate for 2016. This mystifies me because it would, in my opinion, be a nomination that would put Hillary Clinton in the White House. Why would we want to lose another Presidential election?
So I find it interesting that, for some people, Jeb Bush’s brother and Hillary Clinton seem to be basically interchangeable. Politico.com reports,
Former President George W. Bush was supposed to give a speech to Ameriprise Financial Read more [...]
Awhile back I posted about a man who was impersonating a police officer. Since we hear all the time about cops stopping people and demanding compliance, I wondered what it means for self-defense when we all know that sometimes people who claim to be cops are not really cops.
Now I need to ask similar questions about TSA agents groping us in airports. The local CBS affiliate in San Francisco reports:
A San Francisco man suspected of having one too many drinks is accused of posing as a Transportation Read more [...]
While this story has been reported many times in the alternative press, the mainstream press is finally noticing. This recovery-less “recovery” is not working out like other recoveries have worked in the past. Rather than get an education and then start a new career and household, kids are living with their parents. In many cases I think they are getting that education and then moving back home with a great debt load due to student loans.

The land of Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Jerry Brown, Henry Waxman, Maxine Waters, and countless other fruits, nuts, and flakes...where they'll fine you $500 for watering your lawn... and $500 for not watering your lawn.
From Yahoo! News: “California couple conserving water amid drought could face fine for brown lawn.”
A Southern California couple who scaled back watering their lawn amid the state's drought received a warning from the suburb where they Read more [...]
We Americans like to flatter ourselves that we have the lowest taxes in the Western “Democracies.” That’s because we look at individual tax rates. When it comes to corporations, our tax rates are not low at all. There are many countries that leave businesses alone to make a profit. They collect their tax revenue, after wealth has been produced, by taxing incomes.
In fact, there are countries with such lower rates that U.S. companies are being acquired more and more by foreign companies so Read more [...]
Modern Media: State a Liberal opinion, get retained and promoted. Contradict Progressive insanity, lose your job.
"It's important to shine a light on this anti-cop mentality that has so contaminated America's inner cities. ...The underlying cause of all of this, of course: young black men growing up without fathers. Unfortunately, no one in the news media has the courage to touch that subject.” –TV Reporter Sean Bergin, making remarks that got him dumped from News 12 in NY/NJ.
The welfare Read more [...]
A mother left three small children in her car. So now she’s facing criminal charges: “cruelty to children.”
Makes sense right? Leaving a child in a car is a way to kill them. Any parent who would do such a thing must be horribly negligent. Such parents should be prosecuted as criminals in a civilized society.
Except this Rock Hill, South Carolina mother didn’t leave them in the heat. She left them in a running car with the air conditioning on.
But that is still evil. Someone might Read more [...]
The nice thing about this atrocious judicial decision was that it openly exposes the arrogance of those in power and how much they hate and fear the internet. Yes it happened in France, but you can be sure others want to do the same thing, including on this side of the Atlantic.
According to the BBC,
A French judge has ruled against a blogger because her scathing restaurant review was too prominent in Google search results.
The judge ordered that the post's title be amended and told the blogger Read more [...]
You may remember that at least one university tried to keeps secret the massive amount of money they were paying Hillary Clinton to speak on campus. But the Daily Mail is reporting that some of her contractual arrangements to speak have been brought to light.
Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state who is preparing to run for president on a populist platform of fighting income inequality, demanded $2,777 per minute for two university speaking engagements and insisted on contracts that cut Read more [...]
