  • White House: Have you talked to your family about ObamaCare lately?

    The Hill ^ | July 2, 2015 | Sarah Ferris
    The Obama administration wants you to bring a side of healthcare politics to your family picnic this weekend. After ObamaCare’s big win at the Supreme Court last week, federal health officials are serving up some tips about talking to family members who may be less-than-enthused that ObamaCare is here to stay. “You should be prepared when Aunt Janine says something like, ‘Obamacare hasn’t helped anyone!’” a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services wrote in a blog post on Thursday. For instance, if your Uncle Ted starts calling Obamacare a train wreck, you should calmly explain that he’s...
  • Marriage and polygamy: Three's company, too

    The Economist's Democracy in America Blog ^ | July 2, 2015 | Will Wilkinson
    ANTHONY KENNEDY, in his majority ruling legalising same-sex marriage nationwide, tried to allay the concern that polygamy would be next. John Roberts, in his dissent, said he couldn't see a principled way of opening the door to same-sex couples without also letting polygamists through. Who's right? Is legal polygamy next? Should it be? Jonathan Rauch, who wrote this newspaper's ahead-of-the-curve 1996 cover piece advocating same-sex marriage, has plenty of experience in keeping people off this slippery slope. According to Mr Rauch, the problem with a man marrying two women (we don't see many real-world examples of polyandry, a women with...

    Conservative Russians Give Moral Lesson to Facebook’s Homosexual Propaganda By Julio Severo In celebration of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling favoring homosexual “marriage” last week, Facebook launched an app called “Let’s Celebrate Pride,” which allowed users to overlay an image of the homosexual rainbow over their profile picture. Facebook expected many millions of its users to celebrate, but from its 1.44 billion users, just 26 million did — less than 2 per cent. The fact is, the absolute majority of Facebook users did not want to get involved in the Facebook’s homosexual propaganda. Compounding the failure, there was an...

    Killer Mike has become a vital Hip Hop representative when it comes to discussions about injustice, police brutality, and racism. The Atlanta-based rapper has addressed those topics as one half of Run The Jewels, a guest on CNN, a lecturer at M.I.T, and a columnist for Vox. Mike returned to television to once again speak on relevant social topics. He stopped by the PBS program The Tavis Smiley Show. The conversation included Mike and Smiley debating the idea of African-Americans offering forgiveness for racial discrimination. “After we reconcile, why don’t I own any of the land?

With his new book out this week, Ted Cruz is doing what he does best: getting a lot of attention by attacking … just about everyone. But the political memoir that he’s calling A Time for Truth wasn’t really the book Cruz started out wanting to write, says a source close to the Texas senator and presidential candidate. In fact, Cruz was hoping to emulate the writing of a man he has called “lawless” and “an apologist for radical Islamic terrorists” (among other fine...

    Last year, Democrat Senator Ed Markey (NY) and Democrat Rep.

If we want to prevent injury and deaths from guns, we need to know what can be done to prevent it.” Truth be told, Markey and Maloney believe the best way to prevent gun violence is by making it...

    Houston Politics Examiner ^ | July 2, 2015 | Mark R. Whittington
    The president’s chest thumping boasting to the contrary, Obamacare is still a mess that has caused health insurance premiums and deductibles to skyrocket. Some advocates of Canadian-style single-payer systems, such as socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, maintain that this state of affairs will lead Americans to accept a universal, government run “Medicare for all” system. Such a system would also feature rationing and death panels, as has been the case in countries that have adopted such arrangements. However, a Wednesday article in the Wall Street Journal suggests that Obamacare will, inadvertently, lead to a free market, customer-driven health care system...

    USA Today reported on Wednesday that TV Land, a nostalgia network that shows episodes of old TV series, has yanked “The Dukes of Hazzard” from its schedule. The series, which aired from 1979 to 1985, depicted the hijinks of the cousins Luke and Bo Duke of Hazzard County, Georgia, whose main occupation seemed to be defying authority, an occupation in which they were aided by their customized, red Dodge Charger, the better to outrun the law. The car, dubbed the “General Lee,” is what got them banned from the airwaves. The General Lee has a Confederate battle flag on the...

    I think one thing Trump is doing correctly is ignoring specific details of questions he is being asked. 90% of the questions the GOP contenders will be getting asked will be total BS or a set up; and the bait should not be taken. In 2012, Juan Williams asked a stupid question about why the majority of blacks oppose the death penalty and whites support the death penalty. They should have used the question to attack affirmative action as being unconstitutional or busing for causing violence.

If you went on Facebook over the weekend you may have seen friends’ profile pictures turned multicolored. Maybe you even tinted your own pic. A rainbow filter tool was introduced by the company after last week’s landmark Supreme Court decision which cleared the way for same-sex marriage across the US. But in some areas of the world, the response to the initiative was less than enthusiastic—and even downright hostile. In Russia, several filters were created which splash...

Kleck attributes the 1945 - 1968 numbers to Newton and Zimring, which includes the calculation of the 1945...

There are two ways: 1. To describe it as an agreement, explaining why the US has accepted an Israeli completion of a handful of units whose construction already has begun. This raises some concerns. It would represent U.S. legitimization of some (however small) Israeli activity in the West Bank and it would...

He writes: Now that we've defined that love and devotion and family isn't driven by gender alone, why should it be limited to just two individuals? The most natural advance next for marriage lies in legalized polygamy—yet many of the same people...

    What a silly bunch of people our Founding Fathers were. They worked for months to create the Constitution to give birth to a republic. What a waste of time. All they really needed to do was to create the Supreme Court with instructions to make it up as they go along. But no, those silly men foolishly tried to create a nation of laws, not a nation of men. Anyone can see that all we needed was a dictatorship of nine people called the Supreme Court. So throw that foolish Constitution in the fire. We never needed it. One of...

    Record-breaking transparency. Jeb takes a swipe at Hillary by releasing 33 years of personal tax returns Don’t look now, but Jeb Bush’s campaign is about to set a record in terms of releasing tax information. This afternoon, Bush will release 33 years’ worth of personal income tax returns via his website. That’s more than any other would-be nominee ever - by a wide margin. Only Bob Dole and John Kerry came close to this total, and the Bush release will outpace both of them by double digits. As the AP reports: Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush plans to release 33...

    And he's pretty darn good too. Confession: I’m generally not a fan of these candidate-attempts-comedy bits, not only because they’re usually terrible but because I get a little tired of politicians trying to appeal to people on the basis of things that are irrelevant to the office they’re seeking. I really don’t care if I ever see Jeb Bush slow-jam the news on Jimmy Fallon, and needless to say I’d rather boil my skin in acid than see Hillary Clinton attempt to be funny in any way whatsoever. But dang. This is pretty good: It’s still no reason to vote...

    Recently, Parisian taxi drivers decided to deal with competition they have been getting from a new Internet car service called Uber by rioting and physically attacking cars they suspected of being part of that company. French authorities decided to deal with the situation by detaining two Uber executives and accusing them of running an “illicit service,” according to a Monday story in USA Today, The action illustrates how a bureaucratic, European socialist company reacts to change brought on by technology and entrepreneurial activity, by trying to ban it.

    The headline is incendiary.  It is meant to be to show the double standard that has been inculcated in this country, and to show that black people are routinely treated fairly under the law.    There is a myth that has been built and supported by the old media that only white people can use guns in self defense.  The mythology erroneously states that if black people use guns in self defense, they will be jailed.  In fact, black people are using guns in self defense more and more, and they are finding that the law applies to them the...

    When historians look back on the collapse of the United States and seek to pinpoint the beginning of the end, they will no doubt look to the election of Barack Obama to the presidency. If they want to narrow the focus they will point to the period of his reign between 10:00 AM June 25th and 11:00 AM June 26th. Ted Cruz has charitably labeled this period as “some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history”. It’s slightly more than 24 hours, but he’s spot on. In fact, he’s far too charitable, they are the simply the most...

    So the organization gave the money back. And now they want your help. A $50,000 donation is cause for celebration at the Queen Anne offices of the Girl Scouts of Western Washington. “We have these little clapper thingies, and the clappers go mad when we get that kind of gift,” says the council’s CEO, Megan Ferland. So when Ferland came back to the office earlier this spring and announced that she’d just landed a $100,000 donation, the place went mad. Not only did it represent nearly a quarter of the council’s annual fundraising goal, it would pay to send 500...

    “The Nightly Show” host also took on presidential candidate Bobby Jindal and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. In response to Friday’s ruling by the Supreme Court declaring same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states, Larry Wilmore promised a #BigGayMonday episode of “The Nightly Show” to celebrate. The episode, dubbed “Larry Wilmore’s 2015 YAAASSSS KWEEN YAAASSSS MARRIAGE-TRAVAGANZAAAAAAAA: A SLIPPERY SLOPE TO HAPPINAAAAAASS,” was opened by the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus performing a song called “It’s About [expletive] Time.” Declaring it “too momentous a day to spend a lot of time focusing on the haters,” Wilmore addressed some of the...

    NASA’s Asteroid Redirect Mission is still gasping along, but at least one space blogger suggests that its cancellation is all but inevitable. In the meantime, Space News just on Tuesday reported that the space agency has decided that the ARM must actually capture a boulder and take it to a retrograde lunar orbit to be considered a success. This metric was actually in doubt, with some NASA managers suggesting that as long as an unmanned probe, propelled by a solar selection propulsion engine, rendezvoused with an asteroid and then returned, even without anything resembling a rock, it would be a...

    ...Reading conservative sites the last week, I’m getting that vibe from both the chattering skulls and their readers who show up in the comments. There’s a state of shock at what has transpired over the two weeks.Their preferred party sold them out to please global finance. The court untethered itself from the English language and made itself the enforcer for the Cult of Modern Liberalism. Not only was the Right not winning, they were blown off the field. As I pointed out the other day, the gay marriage ruling is the biggest assault on religious liberty in the history of...

    Ban the Racist Democratic Party The Democrats act like they own black people and their founder really did. June 29, 2015 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. Last week, Hillary spoke at a dinner named after two slave owners. The slave owners, Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, not only owned over 760 slaves between them, but they remain the key figures in the founding mythology of the Democratic Party. At the event, Hillary Clinton blasted the Republicans as the “party of the past”, but it’s...
