Passover

It’s the holiday season, one of those rare years when Passover and Easter come close together, as they did during the original Easter. So I get a twofer when I wish my readers “Happy Holidays!”

In recent years whenever I’ve attended a Seder I’ve been impressed by the f...

Voter fraud: is it “significant”?

The left likes to argue that since there’s no significant amount of voter fraud there’s no need for voter ID laws, and that those who support them are inherently racist.

But wouldn’t even one case of voter fraud be an abomination that should offend all liberty-loving people of both parties and all...

Ed Rogers points out that the majority of the American public couldn’t care less about the Kochs.

And yet the activist liberals and left keep hammering away at the brothers. Why?:

BrandeisUnivSeal

The fact that Brandeis has bowed to pressure and canceled its plans to award Hirsi Ali an honorary degree at commencement should not be a surprise. It is merely a continuation of a decades-long trend in academia towards placating the left, and in favor of cowardice.

It’s an especially interesting incident, though,...

Stop the presses: the percentage of people without health insurance has dropped in the first quarter of 2014.

But if a decline in the uninsured rate hadn’t occurred when Obamacare began, now that would have been a shock. After all, if you give Medicaid to a whole new group of people, offer...

Mozilla blowback: bursting the PC bubble?

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich.

Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008.

Whether or not this...

The Supreme Court ruled today to eliminate the caps on total federal campaign contributions from individuals. The vote was the very familiar 5-4 margin:

Wednesday’s decision in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission…did not affect familiar base limits on contributions from individuals to candidates, currently $2,600 per candidate in primary and general elections....

You may be under the impression that Vermont and New Hampshire are similar, and it’s true. But in certain ways they couldn’t be more different. Yes, they’re both small, long, and thin, cold, and mountainous (Green vs. White). But Vermont is the most leftist state in the union, while New Hampshire...

…until people experience enough of it, that is:

France’s governing Socialists have suffered big losses in municipal elections, with the opposition UMP claiming victory and the far right celebrating further gains.

These are local contests, but they indicate a dissatisfaction with the Socialists. However, the way voters have been going in recent years...

Except for the undetermined numbers of people who are getting an extension, it’s Obamacare deadline day, and statistics and spin about it have been released.

You can find articles nearly everywhere in the MSM on the success of the six million signups. Or the six million enrollments. Or the six million somethings....

This Bloomberg article by Margaret Carlson is disingenuous in a rather simple way: it discusses the Hobby Lobby case without once mentioning that the forms of contraception the plaintiffs are objecting to being forced to help provide funds for could at least arguably be called abortificants, and that this is in...

Sex, drugs, rock and roll. It’s a winning combination, along with ignorance, and it may just keep the liberals and left in power, despite a few possible setbacks such as the 2014 midterms.

It used to be that ignorant young people didn’t much care about voting, so that acted as a natural...

The wall-to-wall coverage of Flight 370, despite the relative absence of new information, is not all that surprising. Much of the other news of the day—be it Obamacare, the Crimea takeover and Putin’s anschluss-type designs on other former Soviet satellites, Iran and its nuclear ambitions, or any other of several large...
