Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In and Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, has a line in her book that states “I want every little girl who’s told she’s bossy to be told instead that she has leadership skills.” As you have probably heard by now, her Lean In organization and the Girl Scouts of America […]

On Tony Perkins conservative radio program Akin said, “I think NBC has a long record of being very liberal and at the heart of liberalism, really, is a hatred for God and a belief that government should replace God. So, they’ve had a long history of not being at all favorable toward many of things that have been such a blessing to our country.”
There are a number of ways a company can discretely support alternate–lifestyle employees without putting a thumb in Middle America’s eye. For example, pin a poster up in the break room, right next to the hand sanitizer dispenser where everyone will see it. Circulate a memo. Organize an after work party at Richmond’s ‘Club Hush.’ Attach a rainbow balloon to the sneeze guard that protects the arugula. Sponsor an outing to an AIDs hospice or even award a free subscription to the New York Times.
Ever since public, congressional and union anger and anxiety persuaded the Environmental Protection Agency to delay action on its economy-strangling carbon dioxide rules, EPA has been on a take-no-prisoners crusade to impose other job-killing rules for electricity generating plants.
BPA has been in use for more than a half century and as such, it is among the most tested substances in use today. It is used to line the insides of metal containers and to make shatterproof safety plastics. Unlike what the junk science merchants would have us believe, BPA is not a carcinogen, it is not mutagenic and it’s not an ‘endocrine disruptor.’
I always thought it was creepy the way Barack Hussein Obama has repeatedly referred to the likelihood of his being a one-term President. It is as if he knew, even as he campaigned in 2008, that all the loose ends and unanswered questions about his life would eventually disqualify him.
Successfully discouraging these lawbreakers requires affecting both supply and demand over the long term. The “social justice” crowd focuses on supply when it says we can’t deport an estimated 12 million illegals already here. But why should taxpayers be on the hook for transportation costs? We certainly didn’t pay to import the problem, why should we pay to export the trespassers?
From June 29 to July 4, 1913, 53,407 Confederate and Union Veterans of the War Between the States came to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania for a Reunion and encampment. Veterans came from 47 of the 48 states of the Union and the Chief Surgeon said of the event, quote “Never before in the world’s history had so great a number of men advanced in years been assembled under field conditions” unquote.
A problem with which American administrations have grappled since the days of Thomas Jefferson’s presidency has been Arabs and the Middle East. The Marine anthem mentions “the shores of Tripoli” because, in 1801, Jefferson sent them to there to put down the Barbary pirates.
Wonder what the food fascists advocating dietary asceticism scarfed down as children. As anyone that has sat through an evangelistic missionary testimonial knows, those griping the loudest about your errant ways are usually the ones that could make a sailor blush before they came to religion.
Who says passive–aggressive obstructionism and borderline insubordination doesn’t pay off for some government employees? We had a perfect example last month where I live in Virginia. After doing everything possible — short of calling for Jimmy Carter’s intervention — to prevent passage and subvert enforcement of Prince William County’s anti–illegal alien ordinance, Jefe de la Policia Charlie Deane achieved a two–fer.
This is a post that will be quite different from any other that you have seen at this blog. I’m tired of pulling punches. I’m tired of engaging in at least semi-civil debates (the left ignores it anyway). At any rate, this is the first in what I hope will be a series of posts on exposing evil. I’m going to call it like I see it, and maybe there will be a healthy debate.
Last week, following his revelation that someone had hacked into his computer, and sent fake photographs of his bulging underwear from his twitter account to various young women, Cong. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) announced the formation of a detective partnership with widowed NFL Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson.
