As 2014 comes to a close, it’s expected for some writers to look back on the last twelve months and analyze the year that was. Two recent columns from well known outlets offer a very different view of where we are.

The first questions one must ask are, When did Florida begin allowing Satanic holiday displays in their capitol at Christmas, and why would Satanists feel the need to celebrate the birth of Christ?

While I don’t know the answer to the first question, I’ll take a guess at the second.

The ultra-liberal state of Vermont never liked Obamacare but not for the reasons most Americans object to the law. Vermont felt it didn’t go far enough and was determined to establish its own single payer system. As of this week, that plan is dead.

We’re always told that colleges have to be safe places for students. Controversial topics are prefaced with “trigger warnings” and “microaggressions” are frowned on. Unless you’re a Republican student, that is.

Then there are the real crimes.

As the son of parents who left Cuba for a better life in America, this is a subject Rubio cares about deeply.

Obama’s immigration plan has been criticized by many conservatives as nothing more than a plan to create new voters for the Democratic Party. If that’s true, which is likely, what could be worse?
