Republicans are people too

No more “Republicans are people too” videos!

Posted by  ▪  October 4, 2014

Ad meant to make Republicans look relatable makes Republicans look lame.

A video published earlier this month now making the rounds on the internet is drawing all kinds of mockery, and deservedly so. On YouTube, the video is summarized as follows: It seems like it’s okay to say mean things about someone just because they’re Republican. That isn’t right. Before you write another…

Who are you to judge?

That’s the question asked by commenter Janitor as to blog posts. I was wondering when people would notice. We removed the Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down buttons from the posts because you should not be able to judge me. But you can judge each other, so we left Thumbs Up / Thumbs down in…

Code Pink to exploit Ferguson “Weekend of Resistance” to bash Israel

Posted by  ▪  October 3, 2014

Code Pink capitalizing on Gaza conflict, as Medea Benjamin returns from anti-Semitic Tehran conference.

As if the situation in Ferguson, Missouri wasn’t bad enough, Code Pink has decided to join the riots and protests. Code Pink infamously dressed as vaginas and paraded around the RNC in 2012. They also protested the maker of my favorite body wash, Ahava, (made in Israel), because it contains “occupied mud.” More ominously,…

The Fifth Circuit panel agreed with the state’s…

Posted by  ▪  October 3, 2014

“These policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”

Some Democrats are running for election or re-election this November but all Democrats are running as fast as they can from Obama. For his part, the president isn’t doing them any favors. In a speech at Northwestern University yesterday, Obama tied himself and his deeply unpopular policies directly to the Democratic Party and…

“Umbrella Revolution” Update: Hong Kong’s Leaders Play Waiting Game

Posted by  ▪  October 2, 2014

Will tensions escalate in Hong Kong? Officials “wait and see.”

I recently pondered: Is Hong Kong on brink of its own version of Tiananmen Square? Now, I think the answer is no. It appears the recent student-lead uprising is being handled by Hong Kong leaders the way many of our municipalities handled their “Occupy” events – Wait until the residents tire…

New Narrative: Former Secret Service Dir. Julia Pierson victim of male privilege

Posted by  ▪  October 2, 2014

The answer is not to cry sexism over her resignation, but to fire more of the equally incompetent men.

Somehow, this seemed inevitable. Just-resigned Secret Service Director Julia Pierson allegedly is the victim of male privilege, and was treated differently than a man in a similar position would be treated. This video clip — just before the resignation — led to charges of sexism: Those charges increased after the resignation. At The New Republic,…
