    The Liberal government plans to make age of consent for all forms of sexual intercourse equal, repealing a law that makes it illegal to have anal sex under the age of 18. Right now, the age of consent is 16 but is set at 18 for for anal intercourse, a discrepancy many have denounced as discriminatory. Justice Minister Wilson-Raybould announced the change today, saying the "outdated" law violated equality rights.
  • David Corn Hangs Up On Hugh Hewitt After 45-Minute Grilling on Bill O'Reilly

    Hugh Hewitt grills David Corn of Mother Jones on his claim that then-CBS News correspondent Bill O'Reilly exaggerated the capacity of his involvement in covering the Falklands War. DAVID CORN, MOTHER JONES: As Joe Walsh said, do the show, go play it straight, he’ll play fair. But you’re asking me questions you didn’t ask Bill O’Reilly. HUGH HEWITT, HOST: If you… DC: So you know, I’m given you one more… HH: Here’s Eric Engberg… DC: If you want to talk about the article or not, Hugh, because I’ve got better things to do than help you fill time on the...
  • Problems with the Cornyn Amendment

    The Cornyn amendment does not substantially change the border control metrics in the Gang of 8’s bill—in fact, it uses the same 90% apprehension-rate measure that is easily manipulated. The Gang of 8 bill requires “persistent surveillance” of the entire border and a 90% “effectiveness rate” (defined as deterring or apprehending 90% of illegal crossings). Cornyn’s amendment requires “situational awareness” (meaning having surveillance in place) and a 90% “apprehension rate.” There is no meaningful distinction between these metrics...
  • Confronting Wasteful Spending: The Senate Vote on Ethanol

    Last week, the Senate finally overcame the entrenched and powerful ethanol special interest group to eliminate $6 billion in annual taxpayer subsidies. This historic vote just might signal that a new era of fiscal responsibility is possible and give hope to a worried nation that Washington can confront national problems. After the first, early Allied success during WWII, Winston Churchill famously declared that "This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end--But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning". Could the Senate vote on killing of one of the most expensive and irresponsible taxpayer...

    FAIRBORN — Though Ohio’s unemployment rate has almost reached 11 percent, one man recently laid off — on his birthday, no less — did not let his situation keep him from pursuing his passions. “It was either that or give up. I just had to apply myself,” said Mike Deal of Fairborn. Deal said that he tried to get his first patent when he was nine years old for a remote-controlled camera. “I couldn’t get the funding for a patent, though. No one would give a 9-year-old the funding for a patent,” said Deal, laughing. Deal’s latest patent idea, however,...

    With all these bogus registrations being submitted by ACORN, it's possible that the pollsters are oversampling democrats without realizing that significant numbers of those "newly registered" dems are Mickey Mouse and the Dallas Cowboys. They try to predict what percentage of each party will show up based on registrations, don't they? Just askin', (or maybe deramin')

    WASHINGTON - House and Senate leaders yesterday anxiously pleaded with skeptical lawmakers to accept a bipartisan $700 billion financial bailout plan, saying the package was crucial to calm the markets and stave off what they warned could be the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Failure to approve the package, which bleary-eyed House and Senate negotiators agreed to early yesterday morning, would cause "an event which we don't want to conceive" of, said Senator Judd Gregg, Republican of New Hampshire and a lead negotiator of the package. The House is set to vote on the bill today, and the...

    'THE PRIVATE SECTOR got us into this mess. The government has to get us out of it." That's Barney Frank's story, and he's sticking to it. As the Massachusetts Democrat has explained it in recent days, the current financial crisis is the spawn of the free market run amok, with the political class guilty only of failing to rein the capitalists in. The Wall Street meltdown was caused by "bad decisions that were made by people in the private sector," Frank said; the country is in dire straits today "thanks to a conservative philosophy that says the market knows best."...

    Governor will use cornhole to fund campaign Strickland holds games throughout the state and even plays himself By Stephanie Warsmith Beacon Journal staff writer Published on Friday, Jul 04, 2008 Forget the rubber chicken dinners. There's a new game in town: cornhole. And Gov. Ted Strickland has let it be known he will soon hold a cornhole tournament to raise money for his campaign, with regional competitions around Ohio, including one in North Canton. Not familiar with cornhole? It's a bean bag-tossing game that's popular on campuses and at tailgate parties. ''The tournament is a fun way of bringing Ohioans...

    BLUE ASH, Ohio -- Independent moviemakers want the country to know about the Tri-state's favorite pastime, cornhole. According to various records, Cincinnati is widely accepted as the birthplace of the game in which players take turns pitching bags filled with corn at a hole drilled into a raised platform. "Cornhole, The Movie" is about four teams trying to make it to the national cornhole championship. One of the backdrops is Logos Bar and Grill in Blue Ash, where the cast and crew got into the action. "Lots of energy," said movie director Tim Clarke. "You just feed off the crowd,...

    There’s also this to add to Victoria Toensing’s persuasive response to David Corn’s tortured logic: Corn does indeed begin his now notorious piece with a question: Did senior Bush officials blow the cover of a US intelligence officer working covertly in a field of vital importance to national security—and break the law—in order to strike at a Bush administration critic and intimidate others? It sure looks that way … But he doesn’t end the piece with a question. He ends it with an accusaiton and a slander:: The Wilson smear was a thuggish act. Bush and his crew abused and...

    Corn’s defense is now paper-thin. He’s arguing that Dick Armitage and Bob Novak are both lying – that Armitage knew Plame was a NOC (a CIA agent operating undercover), that he told Novak that she was a NOC and that Novak printed that in his column using the word “operative” as a synonym for a NOC. I disagree with Novak on many issues but I’ve known him for years — as have about a million people in Washington. His integrity is beyond question. Based on his principles, he refused to publicly disclose Armitage as his source even when to do...

    JOHNSTOWN — From its American roots in Kentucky, according to the American Cornhole Association Web site, and moving through Cincinnati, the game of Cornhole is migrating north. Cornhole, sometimes called Corn Toss, is similar to horseshoes but is played by tossing/pitching corn bags (similar to bean bags, but stuffed with corn kernels) onto platforms instead of throwing horseshoes at a stake. The ACA Web site lists official rules, describes the recommended cornhole court layout and specifies what counts as a foul. Northridge physical education teacher Jennifer Yontz has introduced the game to her middle school students and recently held a...

    July 20, 2005 Rove Scandal: Finally, a Real Distraction Is Karl Rove in so much trouble that the White House really did believe it was necessary to rush out the nomination of John Roberts to the Supreme Court? Bloomberg News did report that the White House accelerated its schedule on the Roberts nomination to draw attention to another news story. At least, the Bush gang in this case relied on something real--a Supreme Court nomination--to distract and not the usual mis- or disinformation. (See postings below.) This will likely work for several days--longer if the Democrats and the progressive groups...
