Symptom of the Disease: Liberal professor dumbfounded about support for McDaniel in Mississippi

By Steve McGough / June 18, 2014 /

The American people have to start somewhere. I’ve said over-and-0ver until I’m blue in the face; the DISEASE is the size and scope of the federal government and the unhealthy dependency states and local governments have when it comes to getting cash from said federal government. Some in Mississippi get it, but others like self-proclaimed…

The “IRS lost Lois Lerner’s emails” story

By Steve McGough / June 16, 2014 /

The “Friday-at-5” IRS letter released by the House Ways and Means Committee indicated many of Lois Lerner’s emails between Jan. 2009 and April 2011 were lost due to a computer glitch. Of course, the lost emails were the ones sent and received from the White House, DOJ, FEC and many Democrats. Isn’t that convenient…

This mother and father were prepared and took action when dad saw two armed masked men grab their daughter on Monday night in St. Louis. One thug is dead, the other was shot multiple times and is in custody, and the family is OK.

Hartford transparency: We’re telling you we’re going to build a baseball stadium

By Steve McGough / June 10, 2014 /

It’s amusing. In some warped, political way of thinking, being “fully transparent” and “involving the community” concerning bringing the New Britain Rock Cats to Hartford equals telling the community opening day at the new stadium will be April 7, 2016.

Illinois bank allows employees to carry at work

By Steve McGough / June 10, 2014 /

I have no issue with law-abiding citizens carrying a firearm to protect themselves and their family. I also think it’s ridiculous, “feel good” policy to draw imaginary lines – state borders, parking lots, parks, schools or at work – taking away that option from those who can legally carry everywhere else. That said…

Obama: Student loan forgiveness after 20 years

By Steve McGough / June 10, 2014 /

Yesterday, I posted about President Obama’s congressional-bypass to change up the student loan rules. My post was specific to the adjusted minimum payment which was reduced from 15 percent to 10 percent of discretionary income¹. There was an additional gift provided by the president yesterday, and nobody knows how much it will cost.

Justina Pelletier may be heading home soon – Video

By Steve McGough / June 10, 2014 /

I’m posting this today because I know Jim has discussed this topic on the big radio show in the past. I’m not too familiar with the case, but The Hartford Courant has an update story this morning, and I found a video of Justina supposedly shot last weekend, where she begs the Commonwealth of Massachusetts…

Is federal funding for highways being “chipped away?”

By Steve McGough / June 9, 2014 /

So says the first line of The Hartford Courant’s story this morning. Connecticut is talking about adding high-tech tolls to stretches of I-95 and I-84 in the state, but is the reasoning valid?
