The Devil’s in the Details

One of the things I don’t get about ObamaCare is that they are overcharging young people for health care because those extra dollars are supposed to fund health care services for old folks. But at the same time, we all know that those death panels Sarah Palin warned us about will be denying meds and…

Last February, as part of a White House push for a ban on semi-automatic rifles in response to the Newtown, Connecticut shooting, Vice President Joe Biden offered some advice to a mother who was concerned about losing the ability to protect her children inside their home. “Buy a shotgun, buy a shotgun,” he told the…

Wrangling with Rangel

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY)

After you finish this article, be sure to read today’s bonus article, “Emptying the Attic.” A while back, I compared Sarah Palin’s voice to bagpipes and nails on a blackboard.

As many will recall, almost immediately after Jared Lee Loughner opened fire at a January event put on by the Democratic congresswoman,…

Over the next couple of days we’ll most likely hear from a multitude of news analysts…

A Picture’s Worth of Bias

Bob Turner

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words. This phrase rings no truer than when it comes to most of the media’s feelings toward Republican politicians. The photo to the left was posted Wednesday on CNN’s website as the featured image for an article describing Republican Bob Turner’s Congressional seat win in New York. While…
