  • California and the Hate List

    The Coach's Team ^ | 6/21/18 | Michael Bruno
    I generally am an upbeat guy, always trying to look on the bright side... I generally try to stay optimistic, empathetic, give everyone the benefit of the doubt and am generally quick to forgive when I'm slighted, etc., etc. But my recent visit to California, where I was forced, among other indignities, to endure the prattle of a queer communist bastard (my sister's best friend) explaining how "...we just have to tax the rich until there ARE no more rich... it's just what we have to do," at the Olive Garden--when I was paying the tab--has caused me to ruminate...
  • The Left Should Avoid Any and All Debates Concerning “The Children”

    In their latest attempt to swing this fall’s election toward the democrats, the left now wants us to focus on “the children.” They haven’t really thought this through. Liberals the world over should work hard to avoid any debate that significantly involves the lives and wellbeing of children. Most anyone armed with even the slightest bit of the truth when it comes to liberalism and “the children” can easily quiet the left in virtually any debate that involves children or the family… …If we can’t trust liberals to instruct children properly on who is a male and who is a...

    Complete Headline: Starbucks sinks after announcing a weaker-than-expected sales forecast and plans to close over 100 stores next year (SBUX) Starbucks shares fell by as much as 5% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the company announced a third-quarter sales forecast that was weaker than analysts had expected. Global same-store sales, at locations open for at least one year, were projected to rise 1%, weaker than the forecast for 2.9% growth according to Bloomberg. Starbucks also announced a number of strategic changes. Notably, as from 2019, it plans to shift its focus for new stores away from areas where it already...

    The political, theological, and cultural left in America believe in using children as pawns. They do it on as many different fronts as they can.They lie about doing it, and then lie about lying about doing it.It’s stomach churning because their pretend outrage is almost always about why Donald Trump shouldn’t be president, rather than what’s best for actual children.I’ve had enough!A Facebook post on Saturday declared with righteous indignation: Isaiah 10:1-2    “Woe to those who make unjust laws, to deprive the poor of their rights & withhold justice from the oppressed…”This post was in response to a Time magazine...

    Have you ever wondered why rage seems to be “all the rage” with liberals these days? Every time you turn around there’s another march for this or protest against that; recycled chants about how something “has got to go,” and a fawning media all too happy to report it as if it were news. It’s not news, of course, it’s a mass temper tantrum by political activists still unhappy their fellow Americans chose to reject Hillary Clinton in 2016. But there’s more to it than that, something strategic is at play.Have you ever stubbed your toe and cursed in front...

    Despite being sexually active for over two decades,—I know, “TMI,” but you can hardly discuss sex and not have a little “TMI”—my wife and I have never spent even five seconds worrying about, or one dime preventing or treating an STD. This is chiefly due to the fact that our sexual activity exactly corresponds to our marriage years. We’re teaching our four children—ages 9, 12, 14, and 16—that if they conduct themselves similarly, they too will never have to ponder preventing or treating an STD. For us, “conducting themselves similarly” means adhering to what God has said about sexual behavior....

    A woman who reported that a man was taking photos of her daughter Tuesday at a Montgomery County Starbucks said an employee told her the store could not ask the man to leave. The woman, who did not want to be identified, told NBC10 that the employee at the coffee shop in East Norriton Township allegedly said the man had "been here all week doing this but we can’t ask him to leave." The employee may have been referring to Starbucks' new "Third Place Policy," which encourages employees to allow people to "gather" and "connect," but also lays out guidelines...

    The California state budget could extend a tax break to low-income families of undocumented immigrants. Assembly Democrats want Gov. Jerry Brown to expand the state’s Earned Income Tax Credit in such a way that people who do not have Social Security numbers can apply for it.

    In a perverse way, it’s a skill, really. Just not a skill anyone would want. A reverse Midas touch; a jinx, if you will. Whatever you want to call it, liberals have an incredible ability ruin everything, and they’re on the job 24/7. Remember when you could watch a TV show or go to the movies and not have to be bombarded with left-wing political messages, either blatant or subtle? When you were entertained by entertainment and you went to church if you wanted to be preached to. That’s not the case anymore. The “progressive” church is politics, political correctness...

    So we’re supposed to believe that a Chick-fil-A hating, socialist loving, foul-mouthed former Hillary and Bill Clinton supporter, and 9/11 Truther who once sang the worst rendition of our National Anthem in the history of our nation—afterwards grabbing her crotch and spitting (even Keith Olbermann was critical)—is someone who accurately represents Trump voters. Of course The New York Times, CNN, and MSNBC would have us believe that this is the case. If only the real Roseanne were more like the TV version. … As even the most elementary efforts to examine her personal and political past reveal, Roseanne Barr is...

    Matt McGorry, an actor known best for roles in "How to Get Away with Murder" and "Orange is the New Black," was arrested during a Black Lives Matter march last month in Manhattan, police said. The 32-year-old NYC native was charged with disorderly conduct and a vehicle traffic violation during a NYC Shut It Down protest on April 16, according to cops. The anti-police brutality activist group was honoring Decynthia Clements, a 34-year-old black woman shot and killed by Illinois police in March. Officers accused McGorry of blocking traffic when the group passed through W. 122nd St. near Lenox Ave....

    Hotel Artemis star Jodie Foster explained that she loves to act but will continue directing as well at Saturday's premiere of the new action film at the Regency Bruin Theater in Los Angeles. “I said it and I’ll keep saying it — I want to direct,” Foster explained to The Hollywood Reporter. “And I will direct more than I acted.” The actress/filmmaker was not shy to share her thoughts about the rise of female directors, as that faction of the film industry has been the “last area” that needs to see a change. She also made a point to mention...

    Last week, the New York Times published an opinion piece by Gerard Alexander, an associate professor of politics at the University of Virginia, titled, “Liberals, You’re Not as Smart as You Think.” The piece is an intriguing analysis of how liberals are hurting their own cause by presuming their mental and moral superiority, and thus, are inviting significant backlash against their favored agenda. The prime example is how liberals use their virtual monopoly in the media and the entertainment industry to ruthlessly bash Trump. They're very protective of this monopoly as their goal is ideological segregation. Any signs of diversity...

    Is Jeff Bezos having second thoughts about his political ideology and that of his newspaper? The founder of Amazon and owner of the Washington Post – and the richest man in the world at the current Amazon stock price – is being targeted by leftists because he has been so successful. Not for any alleged misbehavior, but simply because he and his company Amazon (not the WaPo) have so much money. Yesterday, Bernie Sanders attacked him by name, noting that the three richest men in America have as much wealth as the bottom half. Apparently, he believe that if they...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | May 14, 2018 | by Rex Huppke
    I don’t think I have the skills to easily assimilate into Donald Trump’s America. And that can mean only one thing: I should be deported. It was a difficult conclusion to reach, but after listening to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s recent comments on undocumented immigrants, I see no other path forward. Maybe I should self-deport. That’s part of the hope, of course, that by making America inhospitable to outsiders, some will just leave. But I’m not going to do that. You know us unassimilated legal residents. We’re notoriously lazy. No, the government is going to have to...

    SACRAMENTO - Even in the wake of previous tax windfalls, Gov. Jerry Brown's announcement on Friday was breathtaking: The state has collected an unexpected $8 billion in tax revenue in recent months, even more additional cash than reported in January. The money is the latest installment in a fiscal winning streak of historic proportions in California. And, as in previous years, the governor's newly revised budget seeks to divvy it up either on short-term spending or long-term savings by putting it into government reserves.

Melanie Phillips has never shied away from the battle of ideas. As someone who has lived as both a hero and villain of the social and political Left, her career as a journalist has been marked by controversy over the expression of some relatively uncontroversial ideas. Her fierce independence, and tenacious defense of civil liberties has lead her to becoming one of Britain’s leading voices on a variety...

    If you thought conservatives could “make nice” with liberals, that “both sides have the country’s best interest at heart,” you were wrong. This week more of the con-jobs and character assassinations the political left is attempting have been exposed, and if it doesn’t make you realize the Liberal Industrial Complex will stop at nothing to protect itself and destroy the Trump administration, nothing will.The economic news was all good this week, though you’d barely know it if you watched cable news. The unemployment rate dropped to 3.9 percent, which means nearly everyone who wants a job can find a job. Black...
