    “There’s tons of ways that people define ‘slut.’ Most, though, are f’d up.” That’s the lead in for an MTV video targeting teens and tweens on Planned Parenthood’s Info for Teens Facebook page. This denigrating instructional video takes place in a classroom setting and encourages young girls to become promiscuous and emphasizes that others should respect them because, as sluts, they are “confident in their sexuality.” Francisco, the young, attractive sex “Savage U” sex instructor, stands in front of a chalkboard showing one large stick figure and many small ones. He says, “Let’s say this guy [the big one] has...

    With the 2012 election results in, there are no short- or even medium-term "silver linings" for Republicans. SNIP SNIP On to why our pilot Mitt Romney and his plan were so flawed. 1. Paul Ryan. Romney's choice of Ryan was almost inexplicable. A good conservative, Ryan was unqualified for the job of vice president, and therefore the job of president. A sitting member of Congress, he held no leadership position on the Hill. Romney's VP selection was the most important one of his campaign, and by it he telegraphed his lack of political wisdom to the nation. With his VP...

    Wait until next year -- 2016, that is. That’s what disappointed Republican spinners kept saying Tuesday night as they watched Mitt Romney’s hopes crash and burn in swing state after swing state. How many times did I hear a Republican talk about how their party’s deep bench of future all-stars will return it to power in Washington in four years? But all the Ryans, Rubios, Bushes, Haleys and Christies in America can’t put the GOP -- or the country -- back together again. The GOP is a wreck -- and not just in California, where the party’s registration is now...

    Back in March, we heard Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) tell Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”At the time, news outlets reported this as if Obama did not realize he was being recorded, yet there were cameras and microphones all over the place recording every second. Obama had to know the world could hear his words, but I am certain he did not care. When I heard those words, I knew the fix was in, although I still hoped I would be wrong. Obama knew he would “win”...
  • What Major Demographic Shift? (Take a Closer Look at the Election 2012 Numbers)

    American Thinker ^ | 11/08/2012 | Tara Servatius
    Conservatives need to take a collective breath and look closer at the numbers before they buy into the idea that GOP nominee Mitt Romney's defeat was due to some kind of national demographic shift that now makes Democrat presidential candidates' armor impenetrable. Before you give in to the hysteria, here are a few things to keep in mind. First, Barack Obama's re-election showing was actually pretty unimpressive for a guy whose philosophies voters have supposedly adopted. As of this writing on Wednesday, Obama's vote total stood at an unimpressive 60,119,958. That's about what John Kerry got in 2004 (59,028,444). President...

    Voters in Miami-Dade overwhelmingly supported a measure that could save the lives of more than 20,000 cats and dogs a year, and set the county on a path to achieve its “no kill’’ goal for the Animal Services Department. The straw-vote victory on a ballot question to support a small property-tax increase for animal welfare now puts the issue in the hands of the Miami-Dade County Commission. Commissioners wanted to see whether the public favored the issue in principle, and how enthusiastically. As of late Tuesday, with 627 of the county’s 829 precincts reporting, voters said yes to the Pets’...

    The Republican party’s brutal defeat in yesterday’s presidential and Senate races offers at least one clear, abiding lesson: Republicans can’t win without making their case. For all of the worthiness of his campaign, which (to his great credit) was so much more honorable, classy, truthful, and responsible than the president’s — and the extraordinary effort that he devoted to it after so many other Republicans refused to enter the contest during their nation’s time of need — the unfortunate fact is that Mitt Romney too often didn’t prosecute the case. He didn’t really make the case on Obamacare (and especially...

    Let us all now join together in helping Obama in his efforts to assure Israel’s security. President Barack Obama won reelection by a significant majority of the electoral college. The Jewish, pro-Israel Democratic vote helped him in Florida, Ohio and even Virginia, but he might have won at least some of those battleground states without Jewish support. Even those Jews who berated Democrats like me for supporting President Obama’s reelection, must now realize that our support for the president will be good for Israel over the next four years.

    One of the more intriguing narratives for election 2012 was proposed by political scientist Brendan Nyhan fairly early on: that it was "Bizarro 2004." The parallels to that year certainly were eerie: An incumbent adored by his base but with middling approval ratings nationally faces off against an uncharismatic, wishy-washy official from Massachusetts. The race is tight during the summer until the president breaks open a significant lead after his convention. Then, after a tepid first debate for the incumbent, the contest tightens, bringing the opposition tantalizingly close to a win, but not quite close enough. The Election Day returns...

    Blaming Tuesday's defeat solely on Mitt Romney would be a mistake. It's true that he wasn't a perfect candidate, but there's no such thing as a perfect candidate. It's true, too, that he's proven flexible as to his policy positions; but the (Groucho) Marxian line that "if you don't like my principles, I have others" is widely applicable to politicians. The question for conservatives and Republicans is what, if any, adjustments might be needed to the principles we ask aspiring politicians to pretend to hold.The standard GOP lines on foreign policy, spending, the economy, and abortion were undoubtedly important...

    Proposal 3 on the Nov. 6 ballot, dubbed the “25 by 25' renewable energy standard, refers to a mandate that would force the state’s utilities to produce 25 percent of their electricity sold from “renewable” resources by 2025. These resources, as stated on the ballot, include wind power, solar power, biomass and hydropower. A casual glance at this list suggests serious challenges. Water power is under-endowed in Michigan.

The single win was 2004, when George W. Bush was re-elected by the lowest margin of any successful incumbent since 1828. GOP talking points at the time touted Bush’s victory as a historic landslide because the map of sparsely populated counties he won (see above) covered almost the entire U.S. Therein lies a tale.

A group of scientists from the National Health Research Institutes in Taiwan set out to study how methamphetamine interacts with influenza A virus in lung cells.

Readers will recall that the clip seemed to show Romney asking the crowd, which had been chanting "Romney!", to change to "Romney/Ryan." But Scarborough suggested just the opposite: that...

    The Unrivaled Power of Prayer "We do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered" —Romans 8:26 We realize that we are energized by the Holy Spirit for prayer; and we know what it is to pray in accordance with the Spirit; but we don’t often realize that the Holy Spirit Himself prays prayers in us which we cannot utter ourselves. When we are born again of God and are indwelt by the Spirit of God, He expresses for us the unutterable.“He,” the...

    Pray For Our American Heroes and Our Nation Psalm 23 1. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5.

    The six signs posted on Lyons Jewelers in Bedford got everyone's attention on Wednesday. "There's one saying shame on USA and Virginia. Oh my God." The signs explained why Lyons Jewelers was not open. The largest sign told people it was closed to "Mourn the loss of the America that our forefathers endowed to us." Another sign said "The president seeks my demise." A friend of the owner, R.T. Lyons, tell us "He done it to show that he didn't agree and didn't like what happened." Many people we spoke with were very upset by the signs. "I don't think...

    The election laid bare a dual — and dueling — nation, politically speaking, jaggedly split down the middle on the presidency and torn over much else. It seems you can please only half of the people nearly all of the time. Americans retained the fractious balance of power in re-electing President Barack Obama, a Republican House and a Democratic Senate, altogether serving as guarantors of the gridlock that voters say they despise. Slender percentages separated winner and loser from battleground to battleground, and people in exit polls said yea and nay in roughly equal measure to some of the big...
