The prof’s post entitled “ObamaCare is the Gateway Drug to Single-payer” couldn’t be more apt.  There are serious flaws with ObamaCare, and in the terms by which it was presented to the American people, it has been a colossal failure from its foundation to its implementation . . . at least...

There is another disturbing report related to the spread of the Zika virus; however, this one doesn’t involve birth defects or neurological problems.

Millions of honey bees were killed after areas of South Carolina were sprayed to kill the mosquitoes that transmit the pathogen.

Single-payer healthcare is the Democrats’ holy grail, because it put the government completely in charge of one-fifth of the economy and every single person’s healthcare.

It’s total control, but at least as of 2008, it wasn’t a platform on which Obama could run. But as this early video shows, single-payer was always...

The progressive left is apparently intent on confusing and traumatizing children when it comes to “gender identity.”  The latest example of this mission is a unicorn coloring exercise in which children are asked to color their unicorn to match the gender they “feel” is their own.

I predicted earlier this year that our country would start seeing cases of “home-grown” Zika sometime this summer.

Sure enough, Florida is reporting four cases of locally-contracted Zika.
