Of course, there always will be a top 1%, so those in the Occupy Wall Street movement who want to demonize the top 1% always will have a cause.

But the numbers of millionaires who could be taxed to feed the demands of the proletariat is down in New York State:

Now WaPo is digging up immigration papers from 50 years ago about Marco Rubio’s parents, Marco Rubio’s compelling family story embellishes facts, documents show.  The gist of WaPo’s dramatic claim is that Rubio’s family did...

Mr. Vice President.

Biden has been playing the rape card, arguing that if the federal government does not subsidize police union contracts which states and local governments cannot afford, more women will get raped.

This is part of a theme, with Biden earlier this month claiming that rapes were up in Flint, Michigan...

An employee of the L.A. School District and active Occupy Los Angleles supporter was fired for her anti-Semitic comments which have garnered a lot of attention.

Here’s the video of her reaction to the firing, where she doubles down (h/t IsraellyCool):

Frank Luntz did a focus group on Hannity last night regarding the Las Vegas debate.  The group confirmed my view that Newt is rising.

I can’t find a video of it, but NewsMax has a partial transcript.  The group found that Newt won the debate hands down, and reacted very negatively...

In December 2009, on the eve of the Senate vote on Obamacare, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) issued a blistering speech on the floor of the Senate lashing out at opposition to Obamacare, which was led by the Tea Party movement, in the most inflammatory terms.
