A Magic Pen And An Empty Suit

President Obama is a genius, or so we are told. We have nothing on which to base that except the word of people who would find a way to praise him if he held a press conference while throwing live puppies into a wood chipper. So forgive me if I dont swallow the hook on that line. 2014-11-23T00:01:00-05:00 2014-11-23T09:07:26Z Derek Hunter

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Obama’s Failed Approach to Corporate Inversions

12 min 3 sec ago
It galls me to hear demagogic politicians like Obama make absurd statements about unpatriotic corporations that re-domicile overseas when the problem is entirely the result of bad policy that penalizes U.S.-domiciled firms trying to compete in global markets. 2014-11-23T00:01:00-05:00 2014-11-23T09:07:26Z Daniel J.

Conservatives who are looking for a champion will not be able to find one in McConnell or Boehner or the establishment candidates running for President, such as New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, former Florida Governor Geb Bush, or heaven forbid, Mitt Romney. 2014-11-23T00:01:00-05:00 2014-11-23T09:07:26Z John Ransom

Obama's Immigration Order Dispels Fear

If you're a foreigner in this country without authorization, you may be a hardworking, upright and taxpaying person, but you live in daily terror of making a fatal misstep. Overlooking a broken taillight, being a witness to a crime, getting hit by a car while crossing the street -- minor misfortunes that attract the attention of police can bring exile, family breakup and misery. 2014-11-23T00:01:00-05:00 2014-11-23T09:07:26Z Steve Chapman

While its true that the American military kills Muslims, maybe the lesson here was for Muslims to stop killing everyone else including their own people.
