Why should I want less if more is free?

Posted by  ▪  March 5, 2012
As an aside, ever notice how libertarians love to self-righteously pat themselves on the back? Thanks to reader Bill, who spotted this vehicle in Evans City, PA, and writes: North of Pittsburgh. As a long time reader I enjoy your work! Keep it up! The zombie sticker is really appropriate as evans city is…

Good advice

Posted by  ▪  March 4, 2012
on life from Bill Whittle included in the video tribute to Andrew Bretibart I linked to this morning, and from “Jim Treacher” of The Daily Caller: I admired him more than I can say, and my heart goes out to him and his loved  ones. But this 21st-Century always-online Facebook/Twitter/iPhone lifestyle, for  all…

Gainful Employment Rule

Posted by  ▪  March 4, 2012
David vs. Goliath In 1986, I graduated from Penn State University. My costs to attend for four years are about the same it costs to attend there today for one year. In a little over two decades, the cost of higher education has skyrocketed; and what has occurred at Penn State is…

David Gregory loves him that contraception issue

Posted by  ▪  March 4, 2012
Good for Newt for pushing back against David Gregory. This segment epitomizes almost everything about how the MSM tries to frame the narrative against conservatives and particularly against religious Christians. It actually got worse. After Newt, Gregory did the same thing to Eric Cantor, and then demanded to know from Cantor why Republicans…

Make an example of Carbonite (Update: ProFlowers joins Rush boycott)

Posted by  ▪  March 4, 2012
Liberal groups have seized on a strategy I didn’t think would be effective, but has had some success, to go after advertisers of prominent conservative media personalities. Media Matters explicitly seeks to bring down Fox News and investigate its executives, and Fox News advertisers have been targeted by groups like Color of…

“Why not give Andy a country worth dying for”

Posted by  ▪  March 4, 2012
In addition to the line quoted in the title, listen to what Breitbart told him the core of the problem was:  The media. Nothing proves how right Breitbart was as the last few days of complete and utter absurdity regarding Sandra Fluke.  Her testimony should have been taken apart by any self…

Marine Two

Posted by  ▪  March 4, 2012
A different side of Marine One, from reader Scott, who took this photo in Hendersonville, NC, and who also mentioned in his e-mail: An aside, this Breitbart tragedy has kicked me in the pants a bit. I am registering for the bar exam after a multi-year sabbatical following law school. Maybe I…

Obligatory: Rush apologizes for use of those words

Posted by  ▪  March 3, 2012
Rush Limbaugh posted this statement (h/t HotAir): For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week.  In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke. I think it…

Saturday Night Card Game (Repeat after me: “The Shirley Sherrod tape was not misleading”)

Posted by  ▪  March 3, 2012
With Andrew Breitbart’s death this week, one of the most persistent falsehoods has resurfaced, the claim that the original tape released of Shirley Sherrod’s speech to an NAACP Chapter was misleading or defamatory in that it did not reveal that Sherrod’s discrimination against a white farmer was long ago, that she ended up…

Food fight in the culture war

Tolerance.  The concept could be a bumper sticker. But if so, it would not be welcome on the campus of Northeastern University, which just banned Chick-fil-A from campus. From The Boston Glove via TaxProf (h/t Instapundit): Northeastern University said yesterday that a Chick-fil-A fast-food restaurant will not be coming to campus, after the college’s…
