So, the government tells us the unemployment rate is just over 5%.
These are the same people who told you “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”… that the attack on the Libyan embassy was a “spontaneous protest of an Internet video” no one saw… bureaucrats who claim the cost-of-living is lower because you can substitute cat food for steak (hedonics), and that there has been no price inflation, therefore they don’t have to increase government checks for those dependent Read more [...]
In celebration of the Supreme Court’s recent opinion, the Department of Education proudly sported a “gay” rainbow as its logo’s backdrop on its Facebook page.
They say that the Confederate flag is offensive and should be banned, but our own government donned the rainbow colors at the White House and at the Department of Education, even though the “gay” rainbow flag is far more offensive to many more people.
Rainbows are spectacularly beautiful. In that regard, they have absolutely Read more [...]
By keeping interest rates so low, central banks have no tools left when the next financial crisis hits, according to a Bank of International Settlements report.
Since Puerto Rico and Greece are both in the news this week, as they suffer financial implosions, perhaps we should take a look at the bigger picture. What will the central banks do if this starts a bigger crisis?
According to one report, they can do nothing because they have already done it. The Telegraph reports, “The world is defenceless Read more [...]
This past Friday, the President of the American College of Pediatricians, Dr. Michelle Cretella, ripped the Supreme Court's decision to force every state in America to allow sodomy-based "marriage." Dr. Cretella argues that, "[T]his is a tragic day for America's children. The SCOTUS has just undermined the single greatest pro-child institution in the history of mankind: the natural family. Just as it did in the joint Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton decisions, the SCOTUS has elevated and enshrined the Read more [...]
The Supreme Court's ruling on gay marriage makes it clearer than ever that the government shouldn't be subsidizing religion and non-profits
Two weeks ago, with a decision in Obergefell v. Hodges on the way, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah introduced the First Amendment Defense Act, which ensures that religious institutions won’t lose their tax exemptions if they don’t support same-sex marriage. Liberals tend to think Sen. Lee’s fears are unwarranted, and they can even point to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s Read more [...]
Walmart just announced that it will no longer sell any items that have or promote the Confederate flag.
The superstore made the announcement the same day that Governor Nikki Haley removed the Confederate flag from the Columbia capitol in North Carolina.
The governor made the decision after the shooting at a Charleston church, which is historically black. Nine people were killed that day, and the killer is 21-year-old Dylan Roof.
Do you think Walmart made the right decision? Will you continue Read more [...]
In the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision to redefine marriage in all 50 states, the Pentagon is now being urged to “cleanse itself” of chaplains who refuse to support same-sex marriage.
Activist Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, is demanding the U.S. military conduct a purge of chaplains who holds to the traditional teaching of homosexuality and marriage espoused by the first commander in chief, George Washington.
Weinstein claims chaplains Read more [...]
With the unbelievable but expected ruling of the Supreme Court, many people began to act as if the war was over. To many, there seemed to be nothing left to do. People are taking the necessary action to protect themselves from being forced to comply. Churches and even states are now talking about getting out of the marriage business altogether. But there seems to be a different tact being taken in Texas.
Texas was quick to set in motion actions meant to undermine the ruling. Read more [...]
Despite claims the administration was caught off guard, the White House and four Cabinet departments predicted last year's surge of at least 60,000 illegal juveniles over the U.S.-Mexico border and expect it to more than double to 127,000 this year, according to an internal document.
A 24-page administration PowerPoint for congressional appropriators dated April 22, 2014 bluntly stated that border arrivals of "unaccompanied alien children" would rise "by nearly a factor of 10" in 2014 to 60,000 Read more [...]
It’s stunning how fast things can change in the La-La Land that passes for liberal logic.
Within a day of the Supreme Court’s ruling creating a constitutional right to homosexual “marriage,” the same sort of people who see burning the U.S. flag as free speech were suddenly gung-ho for America and accusing dissenters from the court’s majority opinion of committing treason.
Jay Michaelson at the Daily Beast is of the opinion that part of a Supreme Court justice’s job is to quell controversy.
Dipping Read more [...]
While I disagree with Supreme Court’s redefinition of marriage, I believe that all Americans have the right to contract.
The Constitution is silent on the question of marriage because marriage has always been a local issue. Our founding fathers went to the local courthouse to be married, not to Washington, D.C.
I’ve often said I don’t want my guns or my marriage registered in Washington.
Those who disagree with the recent Supreme Court ruling argue that the court should not overturn Read more [...]
