The more things change… Reagan’s “A time for choosing” speech

Central government planning. Un-checked federal government growth. The failed “war on poverty.” Social Security ponzi scheme. Outlandish Department of Agriculture rules and regulations. Appeasing the enemy.

Racial profiling traffic “study” stirring up stupidity again

For the life of me, I can not figure out why a review of traffic stop statistics could provide race-baiters with solid information showing cops are “illegally” racial profiling. Oh wait, I know. They can use the statistics collected – no matter how valid they are – to show a “disparity” they can use in a headline.

Single tragedy kicks off discussion on additional boating regulations in Connecticut

The government does not always have to “do something.” Emily Fedorko from Greenwich died in what can only be described as a terrible accident on the water Aug. 7. Emily and three teenage friends were in a motorboat on Long Island Sound enjoying the day when Emily died after coming in contact with a spinning propeller. Horrific. But as usual politicians are already discussing additional state regulations to limit the operation of motor vessels by kids on the water.

Good News: Firearm dealers removed from FDIC “high risk” category

This was one of the Obama administration’s attacks on the firearm industry bypassing the normal legislative process. In-other-words, President Obama used his phone and pen to tell the Federal Insurance Deposit Corporation (FDIC) to put firearm dealers on a list of “high risk” businesses banks should avoid. Banking is heavily regulated by the federal government, and if banks wanted to stay “in good graces” with the feds, they were told they should “avoid those high risk businesses” or … well, you may have problems in the future.

Evil school loan lenders versus the schools with all the money

On a pretty regular basis during the last few years, we’ve seen stories concerning “outrageous” student loan rates and “unbearably-high” student loan principal amounts. The target is almost always the evil private student loan industrial complex and the employers who just won’t pay these kids enough money to pay off their loans. Should they direct their disgust elsewhere?

War on women: Obama still pays ladies 13% less than men

The left and the Obama administration are “infuriated” by the idea women are not paid the same as men in the workplace. Of course, this is another manufactured crisis that allows Democrats and liberals to attack conservatives and Republicans. Make up stuff and point at the Republicans and blame them for the “problem.”

What ever happened to freedom, and freedom of association?

Are we free? Are we free to choose to associate with some people and not with others? I met some people last night, and at some point I’ll make a decision to associate with them in the future or not. They will do the same. I’ll also determine what my level of association will be. They will do the same. Is that a bad thing?

Krauthammer on Hobby Lobby – Media lies will help Democrats

Yup. Charles Krauthammer is right. I’m not sure that I have ever seen such wide-spread media bias in my lifetime. The 16 news headlines and ledes I documented on Monday were just the tip of the iceberg, and the faithful are swallowing the meme whole … the mean guys on the Supreme Court are taking away your birth control.

News media & liberal sites lying about Hobby Lobby SCOTUS decision

The number of people claiming the Hobby Lobby SCOTUS case denies the “rights” of women is alarming. The Facebook posts are out-of-control and completely out of context. People should take the time to read and understand the case Hobby Lobby brought against the government and stop lying about the SCOTUS decision and the case.
