Radical Brownies: Not your average girl scout

Posted by
2/2/2015 at 3:15pm
In Oakland, California, one alternative scout troop is far more socially active than their counterparts across the globe—and they’re not affiliated with the Girl Scouts. They call themselves, “Radical Brownies.” Their mission? “The Radical Brownies empower young girls of color so that they step into their collective power, brilliance and leadership…

Texas Observes “Chris Kyle Day”

Posted by

On this day two years ago, Chris Kyle lost his life. Since then, his story has become an international sensation with the release of “American Sniper.” Patriots from both sides of the aisle have had to come forward and defend Kyle—and the military—from attacks on Kyle’s character and the role that…

Yesterday was Andrew Breitbart’s birthday. It’s amazing to me to see how that man’s legacy has lived on, even as the conservative movement has changed so much over the past few years. I listen to the stories and wild career paths of activists and bloggers who were inspired by him, and…

While Professor Jacobson was surfing the Twitter stream during the Super Bowl, I was savoring the free market creativity of American advertisers. The runaway favorite commercials feature cute puppies and horses. One particular ad, however, brought out an entirely different animal in me: The Mama Grizzly. I have a serious recommendation to T-Mobile…

Obama sure does like to spend money. Back in 2009, his Stimulus bill managed to use up almost a trillion dollars. The budget he’s going to release this time around will request just under half a trillion dollars for American roads and bridges. Juliet Eilperin and Ed O’Keefe of the Washington Post: Obama…

“Likud is the only choice”

Call the Bibi-Sitter!

There’s something bizarre about seeing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promoting himself in a lighthearted campaign ad; but the latest spot from the Likud party brings a nice slice of humanity into an otherwise-bitterly contested election, and offers up a laugh or two in the process. Via the Israel National News: “Look, it’s…

I don’t know about you, but after a wild week in politics, I’m more than ready for a little queso, a few silly commercials, and maximum football saturation. For those of you who, like me, have chosen to forego an expensive cable TV subscription in favor of a long term…

I wasn’t looking for anything more than a screenshot when I came across Senator Tom Cotton’s (R-Ark.) statement last week (embedded below) before the Senate Banking Committee. But when I heard him speak about Iran’s “…nasty habit with their proxies of killing Jews all around the world.” I made a mental…

Many moons ago, all the way back in 2013, The Wasau Daily Herald published an article. That article contained an interview with the Wisconsin Governor. Among the many topics discussed was federal immigration reform. “People want to come here and work hard and benefit, I don’t care whether they come from Mexico or…

Finally, a little good news to share with Legal Insurrection readers about epidemics. It looks like we’re declaring victory on our “War with Ebola”. Recall that after after outrage at this administration’s “Keystone Cop” style response to America’s first Ebola patient, President Obama appointed political operative Ron Klain as Ebola Czar.

David Goldman, aka Spengler, has written extensively about demography. In 2011 we highlighted his argument that Israel is an emerging demographic superpower: Like the vanishing point in a perspective painting, long-term projections help us order our perceptions of what we see in front of us today. Here’s one to think about, fresh from the…

Do you enjoy long wait times at the Department of Motor Vehicles? If you live in California, you’re in luck. So many illegal immigrants are now applying for driver’s licences that wait times are absurd.
