The Editors of National Review have an excellent entry today in which the Pigford scandal is explained, Pigford Forever.

Politico hasn’t been this excited since Herman Cain. Looking at the tweets from attendees at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was nauseating enough. Obama’s speech was fine, he had some good one liners and some cheap shots, but it certainly wasn’t the funniest speech ever: I just witnessed our President deliver the funniest speech…

“NO” is an extremely powerful choice option

Posted by

Recently, I have been reflecting on the power of choice. As a citizen activist, I work to ensure that Americans make fully informed voting choices.  This attitude carries over to my selection of post topics. For example, when one disgraceful businesswoman attempts to persuade college students to become cheaply paid porn interns, I…

The academics who belong to the Association for Asian American Studies must be so proud that their organization passed a resolution at its annual meeting calling for the boycott of Israeli academic institutions.

The Rich get Richer When the Washington Post endorsed President Obama for his first term in office, part of the paper’s pitch was economic: OF COURSE, Mr. Obama offers a great deal more than being not a Republican.
