A survey shows that Americans are responding to the Obama economy by putting off major life events because they are worried.
The New York Times headline is a verdict on the Obama economy: “Americans Are Delaying Major Life Events Because of Money Worries.”
About half of American adults have postponed a major life decision in the past year for financial reasons, mainly because they lack sufficient savings or are worried about the economy, or both, a new survey finds.
The survey, conducted Read more [...]
The Second Amendment was a help to black people during the civil rights movement.
A few days ago I pointed out that it was wrong to act like it was controversial for African Americans to consider arming themselves in order to protect themselves from violent attack. The Second Amendment is for black people, white people, and every other color.
Since then Reason.com has uncovered some material about the civil rights movement:
Dylann Roof’s racially motivated murders of nine black churchgoers Read more [...]
Same-sex “marriage” was ultimately decided by the Supreme Court, and was decided by judges in many states before. Self-determination would not have worked.
There is, oddly, a pro same-sex “marriage” writer for Red State: Leon H. Wolf. And he has written about how much he disagrees with the Supreme Court’s decision: “Obergefell Reaches the Right Result via the Wrong Process.”
For understandable reasons, most of my fellow front pagers at RedState are opposed to same sex marriage Read more [...]
There’s no slippery slope but we are being told to legalize polyamory now.
Politico.com featured this article the very day the Supreme Court declared that same-sex marriage exists and that it is a fundamental right: “It’s Time to Legalize Polygamy: Why group marriage is the next horizon of social liberalism.” Obviously it was ready to go as soon as the Supreme Court released their verdict, which everyone knew it would.
The writer attacks Liberals for not being willing to provide marriage Read more [...]
The Supreme Court has declared that men and women possess the right to marry persons of the same sex. They’ve used the Fourteenth Amendment and presupposed that people who are erotically attracted to the same sex and who masturbate against people of the same sex are a kind of biological minority. Everyone who isn’t stupid knows that isn’t actually true, but it is a convenient fiction to use to impose a new moral order and persecute Christianity.
So everyone pretends.
But that pretense Read more [...]
Christian schools have every reason to worry.
Some in Congress are trying to protect religious institutions, but Christian schools are probably going to face some tough challenges.
Conservative religious schools all over the country forbid same-sex relationships, from dating to couples’ living in married-student housing, and they fear they will soon be forced to make a wrenching choice. If the Supreme Court this month finds a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, the schools say they Read more [...]
A man wants to sue the Police Department for killing his dog. To do so he is going to have to pay a lot of money.
When police were searching for a missing child they shot Sean Kendall’s dog and killed him. Kendall was not happy about the way his dog, Geist, died. Salt Lake City offered him ten thousand dollars as the going rate for having the police break into an innocent man’s backyard and shoot his dog. Kendall did not think that was right and he refused the settlement.
But it turns out Read more [...]
Even with more money to fix the VA scandal the VA simply creates… more scandal.
Veterans Affairs is involved in more than one scandal. But, in the case of the secret waiting lists, Congress’ attempt to try to help veterans by giving the VA more money has backfired.
According to the Guy Benson at the Hot Air blog, “Surprise: After scandal fuels billions in new funding, VA wait times…increase.”
Congress passed a VA reform bill last July authorizing $17 billion in new VA spending, including Read more [...]
The petition to pardon Edward Snowden is being ignored for a reason. They want to teach you your place.
People might think that the fact that people continue to sign the petition for the President to pardon Edward Snowden and the White House ignores this petition is embarrassing to the Administration.
In my opinion, that is a superficial interpretation of what is going on when the White House intentionally ignores a petition and despises the promise it made to respond to such petitions. I think Read more [...]
Apple has removed a Civil War computer game from their store because a Confederate battle flag is displayed in it.
I thought Warner Brothers’ termination of “Dukes of Hazard” toys was insane (and it is!) but this is even worse. It showed up in my twitter feed and I assumed (or hoped) TouchArcade.com was some new satire site.
If you've been watching the news recently, you'll know of the huge debate in the U.S over the role of the Confederate flag in contemporary America. Many see it as Read more [...]
Justice Antonin Scalia dissented powerfully from the atrocious Obamacare ruling.
As you know, yesterday we reached the exciting climax of Supreme Court Theater: The Sequel. It should surprise none of us that it ended in the same place at which the first drama ended. Part of my anger is that I allowed media hysteria to tempt me into hoping that the Supreme Court would do the right thing. Another part of my anger is the knowledge that many Republicans in Congress are thrilled with this ruling.
The Read more [...]
