  • Hamilton to Stay on $10 bill, Jackson Will be Replaced on $20

    After much speculation on the possible replacement of Alexander Hamiltons portrait on the $10 bill, it appears the nations first Secretary of the Treasury will stay put on the heavily-circulated note. While the high-profile support voiced by the cast and creator of the popular Broadway musical, Hamilton, could not have hurt the founding fathers case to remain on the 10, it seems current Treasury Secretary Jack Lew counts himself among Hamiltons admirers and was reluctant to replace him from the beginning. This doesnt mean things will stay as they are. CNN notes that a mural-style depiction of the womens suffrage...

Their go to solution for failing and failed government schools is always spend more money rather than embrace solutions that actually work such as charter schools or voucher programs. Its no surprise then that their tired solutions rarely ever solve the problems they are ostensibly focused on. Strangely, that dynamic exists even when the problem itself is fiction.

    More and more we're hearing about various members of the media ceasing to use the name "Redskins." In perhaps the biggest deal yet, the Washington Post announced Friday the editorial board would cease using the team's nickname. "While we wait for the NFL to catch up with public opinion and common decency we have decided not to use the slur ourselves except when it is essential for clarity or effect," said a statement on the paper's own site. Worth noting: this doesn't affect the actual paper. The news-gathering side of the business can -- and will as we understand it...

  • Why Are Nearly Half the Voters Still Slobbering Over Obama?

    I dont get it. According to Rasmussen, 47 percent of likely voters approve of the job President Obama is doing. They called Ronald Reagan the Teflon president but the title now belongs to Barack Obama. Nothing sticks to him. Not Fast and Furious, not the trouble associated with ObamaCare, not Benghazi, not the IRS scandal, not the deal for Bergdahl, Im betting not the border crisis and not anything else, including his less than forceful response to Mr. Putin for Russias role in the Malaysian plane disaster.

    When I first saw this clip earlier today, I was inclined to dismiss it. After all, plenty of people make the mistake Hillary Clinton does in this interview with BBC Radio today. The interviewer asks the former Secretary of State to gauge the strength of the special relationship between the US and the UK, and offers a rather insipid answer that applies to nearly all of our allies in the West. But its the apparent ignorance of the UKs political parties from a woman who served for four years as Americas chief diplomat that got the buzz (via TWS and...

    On Flag Day, the Democrats twitter feed sent out a photo to, one assumes, celebrate and honor the day. There was only one slight, tiny, no big deal little problem with the flag. It wasn't ours. Happy Flag Day! pic.twitter.com/I93jQ7ji1e— The Democrats (@TheDemocrats) June 14, 2014 As you can imagine this is all over the news in the mainstreahaha ha ha ha ah just kidding. So far the only cable coverage has been on Fox News. Of course, this reminds us of the 2008 DNC where any kind of flag was hard to find. You know, until we found them....

    onday night Secretary of State John Kerry issued an almost apology for warning that if Israel did not make peace it would become an apartheid state. In the statement he issued (below) he never says he is sorry, simply that he has always loved Israel, the criticism he received for his statement was political, and if he could say it again he would change the words he used. For more than thirty years in the United States Senate, I didnt just speak words in support of Israel, I walked the walk when it came time to vote and when it...

    Springtime is here. The birds are singing, temperatures are on the rise and the Occupy movement is emerging from winter hibernation, calling for a worldwide wave of action Friday to re-launch anti-capitalism protests.
