Obama July_2008

When Al Sharpton called for the nationalization of America’s police forces earlier this month, many were quick to dismiss him as reactionary or even radical.  However, it may be worth revisiting this point in light of the news that the DOJ is going to be spending $20 million in body cams...

GoFundMe doesn’t actually say Christians and conservatives need not apply, but it’s difficult not to wonder if that is the intent of their policy change.  In the past week, they have shut down the GoFundMe pages of two Christian-owned businesses who declined to participate in same-sex weddings.  HotAir reports:

John S. Roberts reports that “Straight Pride” Posters Offend Some Students at Youngstown State University:

To summarize, the school wants to be an “accepting campus”. They accept Gay Pride Week but not Straight Pride Week. It looks like they will accept you as long as you believe exactly what they believe. #Fail

White power structures in Baltimore police force

White supremacy, white privilege, whatever you want to call it, it’s the attempt to “other” white people in America and to essentially blame all problems encountered by minorities on “white” power structures and on “white” justice systems. Obama and Eric Holder are big proponents, as we know, and as we’ve seen...

Bruce Jenner comes out as a Republican

This week has been very revealing in terms of what conservatives actually think and what progressives imagine we think.  The “big” question that kicked it all off was “would you attend a gay wedding?”  This was, apparently, supposed to separate the knuckle-dragging haters on the right from the sophisticated and pious...

Taxpayer Protection Pledge

While I’m not a fan of Grover Norquist, I do appreciate his Americans for Tax Reform’s work each election cycle to get candidates on the record regarding tax increases.  It’s not the be-all-and-end-all, but it does indicate to voters where candidates stand in terms of big government and taxation.  The...

Today’s college students apparently cannot endure exposure to thoughts or ideas that might conflict with their existing world view.  These precious snowflakes need trigger warnings and safe spaces to protect their delicate sensibilities from anything they may find insulting, wrong-headed, harmful, confusing, or otherwise thought-provoking.

Thinking, of course, is the real enemy...

Failing our veterans - VA scandal

Army morale is at an all-time low, according to USA Today, and the Army is left scratching its head:

More than half of some 770,000 soldiers are pessimistic about their future in the military and nearly as many are unhappy in their jobs, despite a six-year, $287 million campaign to make troops...

Rick Scott Medicaid Expansion

In 2012, the Supreme Court ruled that states have the right to refuse the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion without penalty to other, existing, federal Medicaid funding.  Following is the summary from SCOTUSblog:

The Court’s decision on the constitutionality of the Medicaid expansion is divided and complicated.  The bottom line is that: (1) Congress...

So far, two first-term GOP senators have declared their presidential candidacy (Cruz and Paul), with Rubio set to do so Monday.

On both sides of the aisle, there are a lot of questions and concern as people wonder what these first-termers have accomplished.  This is, of course, a fair question to ask,...

As campaigns work to amass the money they need to be successful, they often try a range of tactics from contests to raffles.  A certain campaign has even been known to discount, deeply, their $5 raffle tickets when they weren’t selling.  I think, though, that we have a winner:
