Happy Halloween

If I had to bet on the Electoral College…

… I’d drop a hundred bucks on this outcome.

The rape exception makes no sense

Many pro-lifers believe abortion should be permitted if the mother seeking one became pregnant because she was raped. This position makes no sense. If the unborn is a human being, then the rape exception says it’s acceptable to kill a human being if her father raped her mother, or if her existence causes her mother […]

The murderous legacy of statism

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good […]

A Republican Romney supporter? Not bloody likely. (Updated)

This … … is a blatant false flag scam by Obama supporters. — 10/14 Update: As predicted, this was a lefty thug wearing a Palin-bashing t-shirt.

I suspect the media would have been interested: According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Bush and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, […]

Now that Romney dominated the first debate…

… Barack Obama is going to get meaner and uglier. He’s desperate. His record on jobs and debt sucks, his foreign policy is weak and collapsing before our eyes, he’s a pathological narcissist, and he’s been living in a warm bubble of adoring flattery for four years so he’s unaccustomed to being challenged. He’s suddenly […]

Unemployment October Surprise? (UPDATED)

Oct 5, 2012 Update: And just like clockwork, they’ve cooked the books again. — Don’t be surprised if August’s unemployment rate gets quietly revised from 8.1% to 8.0% this week. That would set up a more plausible-looking report of 7.9% unemployment for September, since a drop from 8.1% to 7.9% right before the election would […]
