Rand Paul Rigs Game In Kentucky And Should Drop Out Of Presidential Race

By on Aug 24, 2015 | 0 comments

In case you missed it, Rand Paul won a major state level, insider politics battle on Saturday within the Kentucky Republican Party. After striking out in his attempt earlier this year to change a Kentucky law that prohibits the same person being on the ballot for two different offices, Dr. Paul changed tactics and staged a campaign of pressure politics to get the Kentucky Republican Party to hold a caucus in March rather than the traditional May primary for the 2016 election. This will be the first time in Kentucky history that the party has ever done so. The change over from a primary to a caucus system is expected to cost the state GOP between $400,000 – $600,000. Dealing with obvious concerns over spending the extra funds from many inside the party Rand Paul subsequently promised to raise and deliver at least $250,000 to the Kentucky GOP by September 18th. After a long...

14 Podcasts That Will Make You Think

By on Aug 19, 2015 | 2 comments

  Podcasts are slowly taking over. Talk radio, while still broadcasting live and over terrestrial airwaves, has finally begun to embrace it. Only a few short years ago paid subscriptions were required to listen to your favorite news/talk shows on demand and podcasts seemed the poorly produced bastard brother. Now, after years of pioneers like Adam Carolla perfecting the podcast model into a viable business, everyone is uploading their shows onto the easily accessed and free format. Really, everyone. As the ease with which getting podcast content out to the public has gotten easier, it’s also made finding ones truly worth listening to more difficult to find, and a well-versed list of great ones that much more valuable. While others may pack their lists with podcasts that lean to the left (sometimes hard) and make you promises that their podcast suggestions will make you smarter,...

Track Records Count: Rick Perry On The Economy

By on Aug 18, 2015 | 2 comments

There has been a lot of talk about Donald Trump around here as of late. One of the reasons is I think there are so many better candidates out there people can and should support. One of those is Rick Perry. Contrary to what is being said around social media and even in the mainstream media about immigration, it remains below a number of other issues that Americans rank as important. Nothing is more important to the electorate right now than the economy and jobs. It’s easy to talk about how to create jobs and how to implement policies that allow the economy to flourish. Texas is the state that fueled much of the economy in the United States in the last 15 years and Rick Perry was there for it all. Here are some eye popping statistics: Texas Added 2,214,900 Jobs Under Governor Perry. In December 2000 Texas had 9,534,600 non-farm jobs. In December 2014 Texas had 11,749,500 non-farm...

The Real Reason Jeb Bush Should Not Be President

By on Aug 18, 2015 | 0 comments

Jeb Bush, former Republican governor of Florida, has a strong conservative record, but is weak on key issues. More importantly, however, his last name makes him not just a weak general election candidate, but would make his election as the American president a threat to worldwide democracy. Mr. Bush consistently advocates for the free market and against cronyism, but he supported the 2008-9 bank bailouts. While during his time as Governor the Florida economy appeared strong, it was helped by the sub-prime housing bubble. Though he advocates school choice, Bush is perhaps the most prominent supporter of the Common Core standards. It’s difficult to pretend that having federal school standards promotes diversity in education, but that’s what Bush has to do to square his support for both. Jeb Bush is also known as a dove on immigration. He’s trying to sell it now as being...

Telling The Truth About Trump Is Not Why We Lose

By on Aug 17, 2015 | 41 comments

I am happy to say that I was out in front of telling conservatives to rid themselves of the stench of Donald Trump over a year ago. Here is some of what I wrote: There is no nice way to say this: Donald Trump is a clown. He’s a charlatan who cares about one thing, and one thing only: Donald Trump. and I’ve never taken Trump seriously, and I have no fears at all about him winning the GOP nomination in 2016. But it’s increasingly difficult to take seriously the organizations and media outlets that allow this buffoon to pretend he’s actually a conservative. If they’re stupid enough to buy the snake oil he’s selling, I don’t want any part of it. I am still not worried about him winning the nomination. Despite his current numbers, the fanfare will wear off after some time. We saw the same thing play itself out in 2011. It may go longer this time largely because people already have a...

The Culture of Evil: How Funny Or Die Defends Planned Parenthood

By on Aug 13, 2015 | 1 comment

Update: On Saturday, August 22nd, hundreds of planned peaceful protests will be held across the U.S. at Planned Parenthood locations. If you would like to show your support for the #DefundPP and #ProtestPP cause you can find a protest location near you by going to the ProtestPP website.   Amid the noise of news and politics this week, a sixth video exposing Planned Parenthood and “tissue procurement” firm StemExpress was released by The Center for Medical Progress. In this newest video, C.M.P. speaks in depth with a former StemExpress employee, Holly O’Donnell, about her experiences as a Blood and Tissue Procurement Technician working inside Planned Parenthood. The thrust of this video, beyond the PTSD-inducing horrors Ms. O’Donnell witnessed on a regular basis while working for StemExpress, is that she also states that she knew without doubt that many of the women whose aborted...

Why Is Trump Following A Nazi Twitter Account?

By on Aug 11, 2015 | 0 comments

Those who are on twitter often know all to well the phrases “Retweets and Follows are Not Endorsements.” Well, that may be. But one has to wonder why the so-called Republican front-runner, Mr. Donald Trump, is following an account named after a Nazi. Dr. (Theodor) Morell was Adolf Hitler’s personal physician. Also of note is the fact that this twitter user’s quote is attributed to another Nazi, Heinrich Ehrler. Fredrich Paulus, the third Nazi reference in this user’s profile, was a Nazi who “repented” and joined the USSR-led group which eventually propped up and became East Germany. With all of the talk on Twitter over white supremacists supporting “The Donald,” this is certainly intriguing, if not disgusting. Stay classy,...
