    Consider Denmark and Norway The inexplicable happiness of the Norwegians and Danes as propagandized by the liberal-left media created a model for humanity and for America’s Democrats. It is a socialist utopia with no needy people and a government largesse subsuming the entire gamut of free-lunch ideology. Scandanavian societies are outwardly more humane than Eastern Block Soviet nations under Stalinist rule. The oppression of the Scandanavians at first glance is benign. But…it is oppression nevertheless, and benign only to those who prefer to have bureaucrats make the decisions for their lives and futures. They have absolutely no idea what makes...

    The Lies of the Devil and the Empty Promises of the World Msgr. Charles Pope • September 22, 2016 • One of the great illusions under which we labor is that if we only get just one more thing from this world, then we will be happy. Perhaps we think that if we just had a little more money, or a better job, or the latest iPhone, or if we were married to so-and-so, or if we lived in a better neighborhood, then we would be satisfied and content at last. But “at last” never seems to come even...

    I was out a short time ago running some errands and had The Chris Plante Radio Show on. Plante was talking to somebody at the Republican Convention and he said after three days of being there that he was seeing people there as attendees and guests that just were not his kind of people. I took that to mean this guy was GOP establishment, he did not like Trump and he certainly did not like the people Trump has brought into the party. You see they were "Not his sort of people". Interpret that however you would like, but my...
  • Obama: I Am 'What a Feminist Looks Like'

    Fresh off endorsing a woman to succeed him in the Oval Office, President Barack Obama stood before 5,000 convened as part of a White House summit on women and delivered his most robustly feminist speech yet. "I may be a little grayer than I was eight years ago," Obama told the advocates. "But this is what a feminist looks like." While he said little about the presidential election, Obama's words implicitly drew a contrast between the majority-female, diverse Democratic coalition and the party of Trump. "You hear politicians peddle the fiction that blocking immigrants or cutting off trade or 'big...

    TAMPA, Florida (AP) — Campaigning in the crucial battleground state of Florida, Donald Trump bashed Democrats and Republicans alike Saturday, from Hillary Clinton to former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on the right. Addressing a crowd of thousands at the Tampa Convention Center, Trump tore into "Crooked Hillary," as he calls his likely general election opponent, for the State Department email controversy and called Romney a "stone, cold loser" for not backing him as the presumptive Republican nominee. Trump said the Republican Party "has got to get their act together, come together to win" and slammed GOP senate candidates who...

    Denmark overtook Switzerland as the world's happiest place, according to a report on Wednesday that urged nations regardless of wealth to tackle inequality and protect the environment. The report, prepared by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and the Earth Institute at Columbia University, showed Syria, Afghanistan and eight sub-Saharan countries as the 10 least happy places on earth to live. The top 10 this year were Denmark, Switzerland, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Canada, Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia, and Sweden. Denmark was in third place last year, behind Switzerland and Iceland. The bottom 10 were Madagascar, Tanzania, Liberia, Guinea, Rwanda, Benin,...

    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday that if Donald Trump becomes the Republican nominee during the 2016 White House race, the "hounds of hell" will descend on him. "If Donald Trump were to ever become the nominee immediately the hounds of hell will descend on him, tear him apart, everything he's ever done from not releasing his taxes to all of his failed business dealings," he said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "And Hillary Clinton's going to have a clear shot to the Oval Office."

    In the American liberal compass, the needle is always pointing to places like Denmark. Everything they most fervently hope for here has already happened there. So: Why does no one seem particularly interested in visiting Denmark? (“Honey, on our European trip, I want to see Tuscany, Paris, Berlin and . . . Jutland!”) Visitors say Danes are joyless to be around. Denmark suffers from high rates of alcoholism. In its use of antidepressants it ranks fourth in the world. (Its fellow Nordics the Icelanders are in front by a wide margin.) Some 5% of Danish men have had sex with...

    Over the years I've seen other articles like this before... Conservatives don’t normally pay much attention to fancy psychobabble, but this is a worthy exception. Some nerdlinger social scientists in America have discovered that people with Right-wing views tend to be happier than those with Left-wing views – even if the party that best represents them is out of power...Why are conservatives happier? The research found that Right-wingers tend not to blame their problems on other people – so they refuse to be depressed by victimhood. This makes a lot of sense. When you accept that you are your own master, then...

    -excerpt- On September 9, as reported by the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran (ICHRI), seven young Iranians went on trial. Their supposed crime? Producing a dance video of the Pharrell Williams’s pop hit “Happy” and uploading it to YouTube. You might think Iran’s rulers would be pleased at expressions of felicity by their citizens. In Tehran, however, cheerful enthusiasm outside a narrow religious context is illegal. -excerpt- ...(they) were detained on May 19 of this year and held for two days at the Vozara Complex of the Tehran Morality Police, until they posted bail of $10,000-$16,600 each.

    So I’m at an observance of Constitution Day last week and in a contest, testing our knowledge of the constitution. Now, I’m gonna win and I’m one question away. The moderator asks: “Besides Constitution Day, what other day is celebrated concurrently? “. “My Birthday!” I yelled. “Wrong Answer” replied the Mod. “You call my Mom on Wednesday and tell her that!” I protested. The Mod says “Anyone know the answer?”. So I’m looking around and . . . Nothing. No one answered. I turned to the gal behind me and whispered “Citizenship Day” and she yelled out the same. Afterward,...
