    The Weekly Standard ^ | 3/16/2016 | Chris Deaton
    Ted Cruz said that he won't humble himself before Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to smooth over the rough relationship he has developed with colleagues. "[Cruz] tells me he won't go 'on bended knee, with my hat in hand' to Mitch McConnell to unify GOP against [Trump]," FOX News's James Rosen tweeted Wednesday morning. CNN published a report Tuesday quoting Sens. John Cornyn, John Thune and Orrin Hatch as saying that Cruz should work to repair his Senate ties, and that he has work to do to earn the goodwill of his cohorts. "I think he's got some bridges to...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Maryland’s highest court has ruled that Baltimore City police officer William Porter must testify in the trials of five fellow officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray. Investigator Mike Hellgren breaks down the court’s ruling and what it means. In a huge blow for his defense, Maryland’s highest court ruled Officer William Porter must testify against all five of his co-defendants and that the remaining trials in the death of Freddie Gray can proceed. “This is a unique situation and it’s not like any other situation that we’ve seen,” said one of the judges. The ruling comes...

    ABC Republican Debate | 2/6/2016 | RightFighter
    Did anyone else notice how badly Rubio, Bush, and Christie mangled the question of women registering for the Selective Service tonight? They all three demonstrated that they apparently don't understand what that means. Either that, or they're all heartless bastards who think that young women should be able to be forced to enter military service and die in combat. I've skipped some of the non-relevant chatter, but I've done my best to capture each candidate's response to the question. Radditz: Senator Rubio...should young women be required to sign up for Selective Service in case there's a draft? Rubio: ...I have...

    Internet Memes ^ | 09/19/2015 | RightFighter
    Okay, so I have a high school classmate who is a leader in the black community who posts things like this all the time. He might as well come out and use the words "Uncle Tom" when he discusses Ben Carson, but memes like this are all he's got. I read this, and of course it immediately struck me that this is likely a hoax of some kind. The only "evidence" that I can find that Carson actually said this is a page from the Daily Kos website that says he did, and then a bunch of other websites that...

    Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh was suspended after making headlines this week with some controversial comments that have set off a firestorm. During his afternoon broadcast on Tuesday, Mr. Limbaugh, responding to a caller's question, opined about the color of the sky. "Look, the daytime sky is blue. Countless books and poems have been written with references to the blue sky, and until recently, there wasn't much debate about this. Sure, there are people today who want to convince you that the sky is yellow, but all you have to do is walk outside on a sunny day, and...

    “I demand justice for Trayvon Martin! Sanford PD should be ashamed of themselves.” On March 19, 2012, those were the first words I ever vocalized in regard to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. I had been driving home that day from a long day on the road, and while listening to my satellite radio, I heard for the first time the story of this young, 17 year old, unarmed kid who was walking home from the store, minding his own business, carrying nothing but a can of iced tea and some Skittles that he’d bought for his younger brother...

    On the evening of February 26, 2012, at approximately 7:16PM, a white vigilante named George Zimmerman, fueled by racial animosity, called police to report that he was suspicious of an African-American child based entirely on his skin color and the hoodie sweatshirt he was wearing. George ignored clear instructions from police and chased down Trayvon Martin, who was unarmed and had been on his way back from a trip to the store to purchase iced tea and Skittles for his younger brother. Zimmerman held Trayvon at gunpoint and allowed him to scream for help for 42 seconds before Zimmerman pulled...

    Lost in the gun rights debate, much to the detriment of American freedom, is the fact that the Second Amendment is in fact an "AMENDMENT". No "Articles in Amendment" to the Constitution, more commonly referred to as the Bill of Rights, stand alone and each can only be properly understood with reference to what it is that each Article in Amendment amended in the body of the original Constitution. It should not be new knowledge to any American the Constitution was first submitted to Congress on September 17, 1787 WITHOUT ANY AMENDMENTS. After much debate, it was determined that the...

    I'm looking for a recommendation for a gun for my son for Christmas. Just to lay out the basics - he just turned 15 and is about 6'3" and weighs 235. Yes, he plays high school football. His mother and I have been divorced for many years, and she absolutely forbids him to have anything to do with guns in or near her home. His cousin recently received a .22 pistol, and my son's mom wouldn't let him hold it. I don't know whether she knows (but I assume she does) that he has shot my HK .40 USP along...

    Raw data show Obama can’t honestly claim a good record as a job creator, but they also suggest that the wild spending growth Romney and company decry has already begun to subside under the influence of the Republican House. The outcome of the upcoming electoral battle between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will depend on public perceptions of the president’s economic stewardship, with particular emphasis on his performance on the all-important issue of jobs. At a May 24th campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa the president declared that “federal spending since I took office has risen at the slowest pace...

    I was watching an episode of Kitchen Nightmares last night, and I had an epiphany about this presidential election that led me to believe that Barack Hussein Obama is destined to be a one-termer. I just wanted to share my observation with you. This episode was about a restaurant called Park's Edge, in Atlanta's Inman Park neighborhood. The two owners were good friends, Richard and Jorge, I believe, who found themselves with some money to burn, so they decided to open a restaurant together. Neither had any experience in the restaurant industry, although Jorge had gone to culinary school. Both...

    Talk about snail mail! The nearly 60-year journey of a postcard through at least four states is finally winding down, although the little Georgia boy whose parents wrote him during a trip to Chicago is now 71 years old. The postcard, with a picture of the Windy City's Shedd Aquarium on the front and a 2-cent stamp on the back, landed in the mailbox of Elizabeth Fulcher, of South Daytona, Fla., last week.

    "Fear Factor" producers' plans to serve fresh glasses of donkey semen to contestants on the next episode had NBC execs so concerned ... they gave serious thought to killing the stunt, TMZ has learned. Sources involved in the production tell us the stomach-churning stunt was shot last summer -- but NBC honchos were having a tough time swallowing this one as the air date approached. We're told the challenge involved teams of twins drinking the full glass of donkey semen -- with a glass of urine thrown in for good measure. Contestants had to drain both glasses in order to...

    Like most of you, I have been defending Sarah Palin against baseless accusations since the shootings a week ago in Tucson. I have struggled to come to grips with how this guy could reach the point that he would commit such a horrific act, and how people that I considered to be friends could defend those who were so quick to attribute blame to Sarah for what the guy did. In the course of offering up a defense on my Facebook page, where I have almost 700 friends, I made this posting on Wednesday evening: If you want to see...

    Overview - New Currency Institute The New Currency Institute aims to promote a deeper understanding of money and its power to reconfigure the global economy and markets for the betterment of all of humanity. It has long been a truism that money makes the world go ’round. But the quality of world we build is directly a function of the values and mindsets that humans collectively hold about money. At the New Currency Institute we see money as a function of consciousness and therefore a qualitative variable in the global financial system. By changing how we hold money, we literally...

    Gov. Charlie Crist lamented Washington's hyper-partisan shift Friday, singling out his one-time top adviser and campaign "maestro," George LeMieux, the man whom Crist appointed to the U.S. Senate just a year ago. Speaking to members of the St. Petersburg Times editorial board, the independent Crist said he was disappointed by how he thought LeMieux has put the Republican Party in front of the people of Florida. "What do I attribute it to?" Crist asked reflexively. "The next primary. I don't know what else could account for it otherwise." The blunt yet cautious criticism is part of the new platform in...

Here's what I've started with: Corporations are evil but unions are virtuous.Christians are intolerant, but Muslims are peaceful.Boy Scouts are bad, but homosexuals are good.Tax cuts are wasteful, but government giveaways are stimulative.

This is a fact of life for every wireless phone. If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases. In essence, don't hold...

  • Senate eyes 25-employee threshold for health mandate

    Washington Business Journal ^ | 07/13/2009 | Kent Hoover
    Businesses with 25 employees or more would be required to offer health insurance or pay $750 a year per full-time worker to the federal government, under health care reform legislation being considered in the Senate. A "play or pay" employer mandate has been looming for months, but Democrats on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee finally defined how small a business would need to be in order to be exempted from the requirement. Most business groups oppose requiring employers to provide health care or pay a fee to the government, even if there is an exemption for small...
  • Is this legitimate - or is it an MLM scam parading as a veterans' support organization?

    Dear friends... Yes, our wounded and disabled veterans need help, our help. In fact, families of veterans who have been killed in action need help as well, as do families of veterans still serving. But what most people don't realize is the growing needs of our returning veterans. The unemployment rate for our returning veterans is at 25%, the highest rate of any group in America and that's a travesty of monumental proportion. Many people are aware of this and are willing to help but don't know where to start and this is the reason for this letter. Two companies...

    Several years ago, on a vacation trip to my brother's house in North Carolina, my dad and I made a really nice combustion potato gun out of PVC pipe. We were launching potatoes using AquaNet hairspray at least 300 yards from our position. It was great fun. We brought the spud gun home with us and it's been sitting in my garage ever since, unused. The trigger mechanism is broken, so this week I was considering buying a new trigger so that I could get it working again. I thought I'd check with law enforcement to find out what the...

    Someone on Fox News (Jim Engle, I think) was just on saying that they are seeing a large amount of "WPE" (Within Precinct Error) in the exit polling, meaning that the actual results reported by the precincts are much lower for Obama than the results that the exit pollsters gathered. In Pennsylvania, I think he said that this number was 10.4%, meaning that Obama was exit polling 10.4% better than the actual results being reported. In Florida, they reported that it was a difference of 3.4 or 3.9%. Also significant in NC, VA, and other places.

Peter has returned to Tallahassee with his family, where he is part owner and vice-president of a small business (Legacy Toyota), and he is running as a Republican for a state house seat that hasn't gone Republican in generations. From a quick reading through his website, it's apparent that he hasn't taken public positions on many policy issues. Hopefully seeing support from conservative voters will help to shape some of his positions....

While I was standing there, I saw a young man of about 25-30 years old walking toward the register next to the magazines. Something struck me as odd, and I finally realized that it was his pants - they were down around his mid-thigh, so that his boxer shorts were fully exposed.

    On MSNBC a little while ago, they had a story about the "politics of the CIA leak". The reporter was interviewing Pat Buchanan and Democratic strategist Peter Fenn. What follows is the best transcript I could piece together quickly. I've quoted Fenn word for word. PAT BUCHANAN: It's very, very serious...There is a credibility problem for the press secretary...There is no legal problem for Rove...Reporters in Washington have a gleam in their eye and smiles on their faces, and there's a reason for it...Pat Fitzgerald hasn't been digging for two years and judges haven't been sending reporters to jail because...

    I'm wondering who everyone thinks the actual leaker is. Remember that Novak stated that it's not who we think it is and that it's a highly placed government official who is "no partisan gunslinger". My gut tells me this is what happened: Cooper calls Rove about welfare reform. At the end of the conversation, he asks Rove about Wilson. Rove tries to warn him off the story, mentioning that Wilson's wife, who apparently works at CIA, arranged for Wilson to go to Niger. Miller catches wind of this conversation, perhaps through a conversation with Cooper or perhaps she asked Rove...

    Many of you will remember seeing a thread the other day entitled "17 Year Old Ohio Student Sacrifices College Fund-to help elect President Bush", about a young man named Ryan Napier who wrote a letter to his Dad asking that his college fund be used to support President Bush's re-election. As you can see from the other thread and from the composite image of the newspaper advertisement that I've included here, the boy's father took his son's letter and ran it as a full-page ad in the Columbus Dispatch on Monday before the election. There's no way to tell how...

    I thought I saw a thread on here yesterday or this morning where someone was discussing the merits of enlisting in the armed forces. I can't seem to find it. Anyway, recently I've been considering joining the reserves, and I'm just wondering if anyone else here is considering it.
