Bill “punish the rich” de Blasio paid a mere 8 percent of his income in federal taxes. Just to put that in context for any liberal that has accidently stumbled across this paragraph: That’s less than that capitalist pig, Mitt Romney.

Killers, thugs and assailants are being allowed to walk the streets of Chicago – all so Rahm Emanuel, some CPD brass, and city leaders can tout “lower” crime statistics… And keep their cushy public positions of trust.

On occasion, the White House Press Corps stumbles across an actual moment of journalism. It almost seemed like Major Garrett was taking a jab at the President’s uncanny ability to lob well-worded UN speeches at advancing Russian T-90 tanks.

When you hear the “progressives” talk about increasing taxes on the rich, just remember: We’ve been doing this since 1913. There is nothing “progressive” about continuing a century of failed ideas.

Chevy has sold a mere 58k Volts in more than 3 years. By comparison, 70k Ford pickups were sold just last month. The Volt almost makes Obamacare enrollments look like a rousing success. (Almost.)

Deciding that bribing women with free birth control could only take them so-far, Democrats have decided to tackle “Equal Pay”… This tactic has been adopted, most likely, because simply creating jobs has proven too difficult for a community organizer from Chicago.

Eric Holder (ya know: the guy that helped run “Operation Fast and Furious” which ran guns from the US to Mexican drug cartels) spoke before Congress on Friday about the importance of tracking the lawfully owned firearms in America.

While watching the President speak isn’t completely unlike grinding a cheese grater across one’s forehead, I prefer the written word over watching a Harvard graduate read from a teleprompter. That’s mostly because it lends itself more to editorial narration:

Brendon Eich, the newly appointed CEO of Mozilla, has stepped down amid outrage from the Left over his support of traditional marriage. Ironically, the Left called for his public beating and corporate crucifixion because he’s “not tolerant” enough.

Yesterday the nation’s highest court ruled that another part of McCain-Feingold is unconstitutional. Chuck Schumer, of course, seemed worried that the ruling would allow Conservative activists a way to avoid targeted IRS audits.

A petition has been started to toss Mozilla’s CEO out on the street, because gay marriage advocates are too intolerant to allow a man who believes in traditional marriage to stay in the corporate world.

From the very beginning, Healthcare Reform was more about earning Democrats “street cred” among the uninsured than improving a failing healthcare system. (This, by the way, is part of what makes it so darn pleasing to see Democrats scramble away from the political napalm that is “Obamacare”.)

Like a high-school teenager tweeting support for Justin Bieber, our State Department spox posted a selfie with the hashtag #UnitedForUkraine in a display of support… Have we friended them on Facebook yet? Are they in our Google+ circle?

An anti-gun liberal talk-show host wants to shoot NRA board members, because they are fighting for “guns everywhere”… Guns everywhere? Is there such a place? And if so: What are the home values like nowadays?

The National Labor Relations Board in Chicago has decided that college athletes – who are getting a subsidized education and a shot at a multi-million dollar career – have the right to unionize as employees of the university they attend.

In fighting for expanded “reproductive rights”, the Sandra Flukes of the world routinely remind us that we’re talking about "their uterus"… Well, fine. But, if it’s "your uterus," then "you" should pay for keeping it baby-free.

Being far more perturbed by taxes than we are today, Colonial Americans took immediate action against British over-reach. And on this day, 239 years ago, Patrick Henry made his famous ultimatum: Give me liberty, or give me death!

America’s space agency is now promoting the adaptation of Soviet style economics. Apparently the dream of reaching the stars includes a hammer and sickle… Who knew? A recent NASA study was used to promote wealth redistribution, population control, and energy consumption quotas.

I think it’s pretty obvious that some high-level Chicago voting officials have defected to the Crimea peninsula. Maybe OFA organizers helped to bus Russians into the area before the votes took place. It could even be possible that Putin, Crimea, and their puppet government called up Rahm Emmanuel for personal tips.

Lawrence Torcello wrote an essay suggesting that scientists who fail to fall in line with global warming alarmists should be charged with criminal negligence, and possibly even be thrown in jail. Nothing screams academic freedom like a little intellectual Fascism
