The Truth May Hurt, But Is Not Mean

By: Erick Erickson I feel the need to add to this post as it is obvious a lot of people take up this topic with some heavily preconceived notions and biases.  I am shocked to learn I think women cannot be breadwinners.  That is what the left says, but it is not so.  Even now I am getting beaten up […]

Sen. Carl Levin was aghast. Before his committee sat, unapologetic and uncontrite, Apple CEO Tim Cook, whose company had paid no U.S. corporate income taxes on the $74 billion it had earned abroad in recent years. “Apple has sought the Holy Grail of tax avoidance,” said Levin. “Apple has exploited an absurdity.” Actually, Apple had done nothing wrong, except hire […]

on May 30, 2013, 6:34 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Washington, DC Vaudeville segues from comedy to tragedy.  The cast of satraps generally known to the public as the Gang of Eight (how ironic, a term used in early Soviet Russia) and in American parlance can be described as unconstitutional legislative thugs and devout enemies of middleclass America, e.g. their recent production of a proposed immigration reform bill. A brief […]

Americans Deserve the IRS

on May 28, 2013, 10:00 AM / in History, Opinion

Individually, Americans do not deserve to be subservient to such a fear-mongering, intimidating and powerful agency as the Internal Revenue Service; but collectively, we do. Let’s look at it.

After a British soldier wearing a Help for Heroes charity T-shirt was run over, stabbed and slashed with machetes and a meat cleaver, and beheaded, the Tory government advised its soldiers that it is probably best not to appear in uniform on the streets of their capital.
