Free content isn’t free to produce.

I understand the urge to adblock. There are many big conservative websites I just won’t visit anymore because I’m bombarded with pop-ups, pop-overs, pop-unders, and click pop-ups. And then there are auto-run video ads,...

When I was drafting my post about the attack on two French Jews by a boycott movement gang, I saw on the Dashboard that we had reached our 15,000th published post. That would be Aleister’s post, Clinton War Room Targets “Cash” Author.
Why do we do it?
We do it for the Honor...
SHREVEPORT –About six years ago, in May 2009, I received an outraged email from Stacy McCain. He had just learned that the NRSC (National Republican Senatorial Committee) had endorsed Charlie Crist in the 2010 Florida Senate race fifteen months before the primary.
As you may recall, Mel Martinez was retiring and so...
“Blogger Burnout” is a frequent joke around here.
But it’s true.
Andrew Sullivan quit blogging in late January 2015, as we reported at the time Breaking – Big Blogger Burns Out. Sullivan’s announcement focused mostly on a desire to change paths:
Why? Two reasons. The first is one I hope anyone can understand: although...
We did it, we really did it.
After years of reader requests, nay demands, for a mobile phone template we did it. It is NOT AN APP. Don’t ask me how you get the App. You don’t need to download anything.
Apps are so three years ago.
It’s a full blown mobile tempate. Like...
A frequent topic here, first visited on January 15, 2009, Add “Blogger Burnout” To The List Of Blogger Ailments. For those of you keeping track, that would be about 3 months after I started Legal Insurrection.
Three months! Even then I realized that being a blogger could be about the most...
This was a tough year.
We lost two of Legal Insurrection’s biggest fans, my in-laws, who after 68 years of marriage died a couple of months apart this summer. Our friend, reader, commenter and one-time photoshop “director” Patricia also lost her husband John.
We also lost two of our dogs in a...
As we wrap-up another eventful year, I wanted to share some favorite posts featuring the many diverse areas I cover as part of Professor Jacobson’s wonderful team of authors.
Infectious Diseases: “Health and Safety Moms” Could Swing 2014 Elections

Ah, the comment section.
Sometime later today into tomorrow, we will hit our 300,000th comment. In 6 years.
That’s not a lot compared to some websites, but it’s a lot here. And the pace has picked up dramatically in the past couple of years. We seem to be...
The Saturday Night Card Game has a long and storied history at Legal Insurrection.
It started on October 8, 2009, in reaction to a post by Oliver Willis (blogging in his individual, not — ahem — Media Matters capacity), wherein he said:
That was the first of over 200 Saturday Night Card Game...

Thanks to many for making this Thanksgiving so meaningful.
This is not an exhaustive list, but it’s a good start:
- The Wife. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary earlier this year.
- The Kids. Three great ones.
- Health, and Mandy’s recovery.
- The U.S. of A. Still the place to be.
- The Constitution and Bill of Rights. Beats any...
Sometimes, you just need to take a break from the #Fergusons and the #Grubers to watch idiots lighting their dinners on fire.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We promise to be serious later.
