    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | September 14, 2014 | Blake Seitz
    Much has been written about the similarities between populist demagogue Donald Trump and populist demagogue Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.). Now, a Free Beacon SuperCut reveals striking similarities between Trump and fellow progressive Barack Obama. Before it became politically expedient for Trump to become pro-life, he held pro-choice views identical to those of Obama. Their support for late-term and partial-birth abortion (where the baby is partially delivered in the breech position, then killed by piercing the skull and suctioning out the brains) put them well outside the mainstream of American public opinion. But the similarities dont end there. As this...
  • SANDERS: WERE GOING TO PUT THE PRIVATE INSURANCE COMPANIES OUT OF BUSINESS

    Breitbart ^ | 18 September 2015 | Pam Key
    -snip- Sanders answered, What we are talking about now, number one, lets be clear. We spend far more per capita on health care than do the people of any other country. Thirty million people today have zero health insurance. Millions more are under insured. No one debates that fact. What the story is, is how can you create universal health care for every man, woman and child and do it in a cost and effective way. Other countries do it. The United States of America can do it. Now, I know the private insurance companies dont like this idea, were...

    If you happen to be a young Republican or conservative of any stripe who is attending the University of Michigan, rest assured that you will receive the same respect and fair treatment as anyone else. Particularly if you happen to wind up taking a class from Professor Susan J. Douglas or any other in the department she chairs. The educator of young minds and prolific writer has penned a thoughtful editorial piece in which she explains that its actually okay to hate Republicans because the science supports it. National Review has the details. I hate Republicans, communications department chairwoman and...

    The last time Lou Pelletier spoke with his 15-year-old daughter was Feb. 14 Valentines Day. For this father of four, though, the day held a different meaning for his youngest valentine: It marked one year since she was taken and placed in a psychiatric ward against her parents will. We need help, Lou Pelletier told TheBlaze in an exclusive interview, explaining why he made the decision to break a judges gag order and talk about the situation. Im trying to save my daughters life, he said. While still being able to live, Jessica, one of Justinas older sisters, added....

    CSM Facebook ^ | October 1, 2013 | CSM
    On this day, I make the pledge that when my employer drops my health insurance, I will not join the exchange. When the IRS fines me, I will not pay that fine! When that results in the IRS issuing a warrant for that fine, I will not comply! When they knock on my door to enforce the warrant, I will not answer! Eventually, they will kick in my door to enforce the warrant and at that time many will pay a heavy price! The "tolerant and compassionate left" must be willing to shoot me dead to enforce their utopian dreams!...

I have always been a principled conservative voice inside the administration, but when the Governor makes a decision I will support and help implement that decision. Unfortunately, Obamacare is currently the law of the land and states have to decide how to make the best of it for working families and taxpayers. Conservative Governors such as Jan Brewer in Arizona, John Kasich in Ohio, and Rick Scott in Florida are all taking...
  • Democratic veterans of the tobacco wars take aim at energy drinks

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 31, 2013 | JOEL GEHRKE
    Senate Democrats brought energy drink industry representatives before Congress, with Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., comparing them to the heads of tobacco companies and faulting them for marketing beverages to children in a special appearance as witness at the hearing. We were all veterans of the tobacco wars, Durbin said during a Senate Commerce Committee hearing on energy drinks, in reference to colleagues who want to crack down on the industry. Were getting the same run around from these energy drink companies. They are openly, openly advertising to kids and denying it. As the sale of energy drinks has grown, so...

    As many of my FRiends know, I was considering adopting a rescue dog named Buford. The foster brought him by yesterday and at the time he was generally just checking everything out. He is a coon hound and all nose! He is a very beautiful dog, so I'll try to post his pic in the following post. The Vet estimates his age to be between 3 and 4. He is about 75 lbs, but seems much stronger than that! He seems to be a very smart dog and he does like to be around people. He makes it very evident...

    Our Valentine's Day tradition continues There are quite a few things in life that are more foolish and desperate than using the Dave Ramsey pickup lines to woo someonetaking an interest-only mortgage, going within 50 feet of a payday loan store, and buying lotto tickets, just to name a few. But while all of these actions are avoidable, February 14 is not. And if its Valentines Day, it must be time for Dave Ramsey pickup lines, that is. So without further ado, here they are: the sixth-annual list of Dave Ramsey pickup lines. If I had a dollar for...

    All 68 of the teams in the 2012 NCAA Tournamentbest known as March Madnesswill have at least one thing in common when the tournament starts today. No matter what type of season they had, whether they are 28-2 or 15-15, whether the year has been filled with injuries or as miraculous as a Disney story, all of these teams only need to win six more games to be national champions. No matter what has happened in the past, the season starts over today. Each team, each player, each coach has a fresh slate. Past mistakesmissed shots, bad passes, poor coaching...

    The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty. Proverbs 21:5 "Are you a goal setter? Do you typically set goals at the first of the year? If not, why not? Goals give you a starting point and a destination. It is the easiest way to give meaningful direction to your life, which releases you to effectively use your talents," Dan Miller writes in his book 48 Days to the Work You Love. So what do you want to accomplish and become this year? This year doesn`t have to...

    The New American ^ | November 3, 2011 | Bob Adelmann
    Despite the public perception that public school teachers in general are underpaid, Jason Richwine, senior policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation and co-author of Assessing the Compensation of Public-School Teachers, says the reality is that its just not true. Theres no way to look at the data and conclude that they are underpaid. They are certainly paid more than they can get if they work in the private sector In fact, Richwine found that public-school teachers receive compensation about 52% higher than their skills would otherwise garner in the private sector. The reason for the study is that We want...

    Topping the list of things most teenagers probably would not want for Christmas? A trip to the hospital. But 15-year-old Joshua Nienow didnt have a choice. On December 19, 2002, hours after he was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), Joshua was admitted into Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee to begin a yearlong battle against the disease. For the next nine weeks, he would endure several rounds of harsh chemotherapy treatment and a surgery to remove 12 inches of his intestines. To make matters worse, he already had Crohns disease, which complicated his treatment and made his outlook even...

    "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!" Yeah, that's great. But what do you want? What are your goals? What are your demands? What result are you looking for? The beauty of being vague is that anyone who has any emotion can get caught up in the excitement and join your crusade. They'll just get mad at something and assume that you're both mad about the same thing. Put a few hundred of these people together, and boom. You've got a crowd, a headline and a lot of attention but no message. A lot...
