We’re Number One!

At least, I’m fairly sure we must be, for could there be a country in which people are stupider than our fellow citizens: If you haven’t heard, there’s going to be a large military exercise around the country from July 15th to September 15th. It’s called Jade Helm 15 because all military trainings have names […]

The Department of Education looks out for its constituents

This is truly disgusting: In the wake of the abrupt closure of the for-profit Corinthian Colleges on Sunday, the Education Department released official guidance suggesting that the school’s 16,000 students transfer to a number of the industry’s most troubled for-profit schools. Among the schools on the Education Department’s list of “viable transfer options” released to […]

Democrats go for another bunt single

A couple of days ago I noted that Hillary Clinton was prepared to make the relatively trivial issue of paid leave the centerpiece of her campaign, that being yet another example of the Democrats propensity to try to bunt their way on base. To extend the analogy (or is it metaphor?), if you know the […]

When can we start digging?

Elizabeth Warren says that the Trans Pacific Partnership “trade” pact is a bad deal, but Obama says she’s wrong”“ “I love Elizabeth. We’re allies on a whole host of issues. But she’s wrong on this,” he said. “I would not be doing this trade deal if I did not think it was good for the […]

Typical

Look’s like the broad outlines of Hillary’s campaign to free the middle class are coming into focus: One of Hillary Clinton’s new senior policy advisers, Ann O’Leary, is giving the clearest signal yet that Clinton plans to make the right to take paid time off from work—after child birth or to care for a newborn […]

How to stop voter suppression

Daily Kos directed me to this article at the Nation, in which John Nichols, of that illustrious publication, proposes that we enshrine the right to vote in the Constitution. The proposed text of the Amendment: “SECTION 1: Every citizen of the United States, who is of legal voting age, shall have the fundamental right to […]

John Larson makes a very good Social Security proposal

It appears that the Democrats have finally caught on once again to the fact that Social Security is a popular program and that it is a good idea to be perceived as its defender and expander. I say once again because there was a time when they ran quite effectively against the threat, real or […]

Hillary starts a conversation

When I first saw this video, I thought it was an official Hillary video: But, watching it again, I see the final disclaimer. Nonetheless, it is almost inconceivable that Hillary had nothing to do with this, given the voiceover. So, my  first reaction was that it was either the most cynical campaign commercial in history […]

Cal Thomas catches us in the act

Cal Thomas has caught us out. We manipulated the Indiana Republican Party into passing a law encouraging bigotry, and then took advantage of them when they fell into our clever trap: The uproar about Indiana’s law was political theater. It is also a trap set by the Left, which Republicans risk falling into. It works […]

Easter comes to Our Lady of Sorrows

I have mentioned in the past that I learned everything one need know about religion and the Catholic Church (a redundancy, since the Catholic Church is the one true church) at Our Lady of Sorrows School grammar school in Hartford, Connecticut. This institution of lower learning is no more; there has been some progress in […]
