The Hawaii State Senate has been limiting opposition testimony to one minute at times, and in some cases, working class families who paid $200 to fly from the other islands to testify could not even speak. Those wishing to testify against the bill, including many native Hawaiians, were barred from speaking at all.
Your friends and protectors at the federal level have found another concession on which to muscle in: Farmer’s markets. In a perfect film noire scene, you can almost hear the words “Nice small farm ya got here, Mac. Be a shame if something happened to it.”
Yes, I know, it is over. Lee and Cruz got schooled in the art of statecraft, largely by a group of Republicans who seem to have never mastered it themselves.
The Northern California Youth Football League' “Mercy Rule”: Simply put, the rule dictates that if a team wins by 35 points or more, that team is fined 200 dollars and the coach gets a one-week suspension.
I am familiar with the argument that poor people are forced to live on junk food because it is cheaper than buying real food. But in the case of food-stamps, people aren’t buying anything. They aren’t being forced to make poor nutritional choices. They are being encouraged to do so.
And so I hear Harry Reid waxing rhapsodic over the fate of the innocents in Syria. Unfortunately, the gentleman from Nevada's concern is one born of political expedience.
Good news! Now the dream of owning a home with the help of Uncle Sam has gone global!
A number of liberal groups and churches are pushing a national walk-out off fast-food employees to demand that the minimum wage be upped to $15 an hour. They seem not to care, however, about Illinois hiring people at $9 per hour to enroll citizens in Obamacare.
This is naturally of great concern to anyone who hates hunting, camping, ATVs, OHV roads, oil and gas development, legitimate elections, and anything that does not come from the Whole Earth Catalog, or the mind of Wavy Gravy. (Kids, ask your grandparents about him.) 12:01 AM
Again, I offer my back yard as an asylum to anyone in Colorado who still wishes to breathe free air. Bring your own tent, RV hookups not provided.
Part two of my interview last week with Senator Mike Lee on his efforts to de-fund Obamacare. I think we all knew there are some crooked folks on The Hill. But what Lee had to say tells me some of these people could give a pretzel a run for its money.
With Mike Lee making the news, I had a chance on Monday to talk with him about his efforts to defund Obamacare. And yes I do occasionally scoop Limbaugh. Rather than offer you an op-ed extract, I thought I would let the Senator speak for himself.
When one considers the unpleasant image of leering sneering hordes shouting “Hail Satan” and placing coat hangers in the hands of children, one must also remember that for otherwise reasonable, compassionate people to become unreasonable and merciless, one only needs to remember that the right of set stimuli can produce those very results.
In order to divert attention from the NSA, IRS, a foreign policy that is DOA, dying union support, a health care policy that resembles a plate of dried spaghetti and a non-existent immigration policy, the old cowhand from Chicago reverted to an oldie but goodie on Tuesday: Saving the environment.
The shadows cast by pillars of blanket amnesty and unsecured borders are getting longer as the national day wears on and the Twilight of the Republic sets in.
The First Amendment matters now more than ever. As does the voice of the individual.
In my unauthorized capacity do hereby extend the offer of asylum to any Coloradoans seeking same in the Beehive State, as their state slides toward Californiacation.
Since the Wisconsin DPI also suggests getting a person of color to hold me accountable, I contacted some friends of mine at Project 21, an all-black conservative action network, to see if all of the above was a thinly veiled attempt to consolidate power or if I should genuinely hang my head in shame because of the color of my skin.
The legislators in Washington figure that a $25 tax on bicycles that cost more than $500 should garner about a million bucks for roads.
The benefits of early childhood education are boundless, and no sane person would argue that. But no sane person would argue that such things should remain under the aegeis of the federal government.
