Politically correct speech has become an Albatross around our necks. Then they came for the paint, and there were few words left to defend it. Fired employee…

Of course, Bill’s desire to go full progressive is very tongue in cheek. In this new edition of Afterburner he even says “you should never go full progressive.” This video is actually a side by side comparison of President Obama and President George Washington, just in time for July 4th weekend.

One of the most common questions I get at Law of Self Defense Seminars is, “How do I pick a good self-defense lawyer if I’ve had to use force in defense of myself (or my family, my home, business, etc.)?” That’s too lengthy a topic for a forum post, but it does…

In the summer of 2008, putting Joe Biden on the ticket was “Barack Obama’s first decision.” He was praised by Democrats and the media for his brilliant and serious decision. Choosing Biden, it was alleged, would provide foreign policy gravitas to the campaign and, eventually, the Obama Administration. But Biden’s track record on…

A few articles this week effectively absolve Hamas (and more generally the Palestinians) for the latest escalation in the Middle East and put the bulk of the blame on Israel.
