How predictable: The Federal Communications Commission voted on strict party lines to adopt Obama's 332 page Net Neutrality proposal.
Welcome to the new America: Where bigger no gun signs are considered an adequate anti-terror policy.
Well, its official: Democrats try to ruin everything that is fun. A group of California Nannycrats are pushing to make smokeless tobacco illegal for major league baseball players.
Governments involvement in healthcare has been such a rousing success, Obama is now thinking about getting more involved in the retirement of middle class America. Yeah, the same folks who believe an 85 year old needs maternity care will soon be deciding what you need for your retirement.
I guess its about time I said something nice about a Democrat. So, here it goes: In 1962, John Glenn was finally hurled into space by a small army of government scientists hell-bent on making sure those commies in Russia didnt dominate the Space Race.
According to a couple of scientists from Columbia University, air travel might be relegated to the trash bin of history in the future because of the supposed global warming that is occurring today.
Lets just run an online poll for future public elections. Maybe we can set up a phone bank, like American Idol, for people without access to the internet. Heck, lets just do a show of hands: Hillary or Jeb for 2016?
Before anyone even realized what was happening, Castro had nationalized most of the islands industry, abolished private property, and directed the government to regulate wage controls. (No, Elizabeth Warren This is not a 2016 platform.)
The folks over at the New York Times are keeping up their tradition of shilling for big government spending. In a recent column, the Times suggests that a recent uptick in government spending is creating prosperity, and boosting the economy.
Lets give a rebuttal Shall we?
Yeah, lets regulate political speech on the internet. Because I know most of us are terrified that the feds don't do enough to regulate peoples ability to speak freely nowadays, right?
Sam Adams pro-liberty group managed to attack a handful of customhouses and kidnap a few tax collectors after the passage of the Stamp Act. (Seriously Lois Lerner is SUPER lucky she wasnt around in the 1700s.)
The Swiss arm of HSBC Holdings Plc private banking arm has been accused of helping wealthy international customers avoid taxes So, when I make my millions, remind me to bank with HSBC.
I know I was surprised to learn that 1.4 degrees of warming (over the last century) was enough to push the cradle of civilization into mass chaos. (Because, as we all know, it was always such a peaceful corner of the world up until recently.)
Al Sharpton owes roughly $4 million in taxes. But I guess the IRS is just too busy harassing conservatives to care about some uppity liberal whos a few million dollars behind on his taxes.
The self-proclaimed activist Attorney General, Eric Holder, told reporters that he fixed George Bushs politicized Department of Justice It was a little like watching the captain of the Titanic proudly boast about his skill as everyone waited in line for the lifeboats.
Its nice to see that New New York (Colorado) still has a handful of anti-Bloombergs among them. A survivor from the Columbine school shooting of 1999 is now pushing for relaxed carry restrictions on public school property.
What is the progressive solution to companies moving their assets outside of the US, in an effort to avoid the worlds highest corporate tax rate? Well impose new taxes, I guess. And if that seems a little silly, thats because it is.
Only a Democrat would think we could solve the negative impact of high tax rates by further hiking tax rates. It takes a very specialized economic ignorance in order to come up with some of the policy prescriptions proposed by the folks at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
So the DEA was planning on tracking everyone that went to a gun show? It might be time to start borrowing your liberal neighbors car for your trip to the gun range, gun store, and gun show. (And, just for good measure, drop by a tea party protest while youre out.)
