California Mirrors Nation’s “Hunger Games” Set-up

Professor Glenn Reynolds likens Washington, D.C ., to the iconic Panem, capital city of “The Hunger Games”.

I agree with Zach, nothing to laugh about here, least of all the honesty of the message: I just recently moved to Denver, CO and captured this shot this afternoon downtown. I have no witty remarks for this photo. It is simply downright depressing. Best wishes.

Obamacare will not work. Just like the Euro did not work. Because of people. Via The Telegraph, German euro founder calls for ‘catastrophic’ currency to be broken up: Mr Lafontaine said he backed EMU but no longer believes it is sustainable. “Hopes that the creation of the euro would force rational economic behaviour on all…

The enormous mushroom cloud, the earth-shaking earthquake-like reverberations, the secondary explosions. We’re heard a lot of noise from Syria, but relatively little about casualties. The NY Times reports over 100 dead soldiers: The attack, which sent brightly lighted columns of smoke and ash high into the night sky above the Syrian capital, struck several…

There’s no such thing as a free immigration amnesty

Posted by
5/6/2013 at 11:20am
Amnesty, and particularly citizenship, for people who broke the law to get here is bad policy because it rewards law breakers and advantages them over law abiders. It’s also very costly, as a study released by the Heritage Foundation demonstrates, The Fiscal Cost of Unlawful Immigrants and Amnesty to the U.S. Taxpayer: Executive…

From LukeHandCool: This van was heading west towards the beach down Wilshire Boulevard in the Peeps Progressive Republic of Santa Monica, California. Only kind of bumper sticker mentioning the troops you’ll usually see here on the Westside of L.A. is the disingenuous, “Support Our Troops, Bring Them Home.” As we know, they don’t want…

I don’t know who is behind this. I literally don’t know, but I have my suspicions. There’s only one person who could make such a thing, but I’m not naming names unless he or she comes out. But it’s just a suspicion. I have to say, “both of the candidates in…

The death of the Tea Party movement has been greatly exaggerated.

At the time of the lockdown of Boston after the bombing, I noted that the Boston lock-down exposes gun culture divide over the issue of whether citizens hold up in their homes would be safer if armed. That suggestion caused a vehement reaction from liberals on Twitter, including the now infamous suggestion from one…
