For naïve followers, the notion that capital punishment is unfair is an uncritically accepted faith based on logical fallacies, unwarranted assumptions and insupportable assertions. For knowing leaders, the demand for fairness is a cynical ploy intended to abolish the penalty rather than make it fair. [...]
For naïve followers, the notion that capital punishment is unfair is an uncritically accepted faith based on logical fallacies, unwarranted assumptions and insupportable assertions. For knowing leaders, the demand for fairness is a cynical ploy intended to abolish the penalty rather than make it fair.
Contrary to charges leveled by those addicted to saving brutal murderers, the death penalty is the only fair punishment. [...]
If you tried to find out what recently happened in court ending the criminal case against former GOP Congressman Tom DeLay, almost all the results that come up are from conservative sites. The left-wing news media deliberately ignored the story of his total legal exoneration earlier [...]
A misleading assertion regarding the Ebola virus was published recently in an online essay at Scientific American.
“[T]he [Ebola] virus would have to develop attachments that would allow it to easily attach receptors in the upper respiratory pathway—something that neither it (nor any of its viral [...]
Jeff Bezos is a transcendent Internet entrepreneur. He understands the way the Web works in a way few others do. He sees around the curve of the Earth just a little further than do most of us.
To wit: Bezos started in 1994 Amazon.com.
(T)he world’s largest [...]
So I take it Rand Paul opposes arming the Syrian opposition, but supports US air strikes against ISIS. Fortunately, his libertarian fans see through his blatant difference splitting and are not happy about it. The linked article describes Rand’s weaseling but otherwise is a typical Daily Beast snarkfest.
On Thursday afternoon, Paul took the Senate [...]
Look, I don’t like the Grammar Nazi any more than the next guy, but that’s the guy who nitpicks other folks’ usages to make himself feel superior. Occasionally, however, grammar intervention is needed to save all that is right and true.
Let’s go back to grade school, shall we? You can add ing to verbs. [...]
It takes a special man to cram so much wrong into a mere 342 words. Or an Old Grey Lady.
The New York Times’ utterly ridiculous Editorial Board recently as one addressed Title II Internet regulatory Reclassification and Network Neutrality – and they did so in utterly [...]
The Association Game: Is this Ukrainian more like Putin or Poroshenko?
Republican water-carriers can smear the Pauls as isolationists all they want: the notion of the US as “world cop” is still neither constitutional nor moral nor practical.
The Left has quietly colonized the retreats that average Americans beat into the “safe zone” of sports. Sometimes its agenda leaks out.
The above title is a question I have been asking for the last 5 years. As the economy continued in the doldrums one has to wonder. Now many of you may be asking who is Peggy Joseph? The answer is that she is the woman who, in [...]
Matt Lauer gives The Captain love.
Derek Jeter has been a darned good ballplayer; but the media hype surrounding his final appearance at the All-Star Game transformed him into a god. Is progressive guilt lurking here?
Kirsten Powers shows up on Fox News quite often. She used to be a liberal commentator of sorts but she seemed to be leaning to the right. She even admitted she did not vote for Obama in 2012. Obviously she admired him in 2008. She looked a [...]
H.L. Mencken, in 1918, observed that “the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”
Much of politics is made up of what is called, in [...]
The Media Marxist Left pushing the terrible Internet policy known as Network Neutrality oft are absurdly called “consumer groups.”
Major U.S. Consumer Groups Support (Federal Communications Commission) FCC Action on Net Neutrality
They want Net Neutrality because they want a single-payer government Web – they [...]
Did you see that headline at CNN Money? The publication reported that recently revised numbers from the federal government show the economy shrank during the first quarter, marking the first decline in economic growth in about 3 years. The story then quoted an economist who believes the [...]
How often have you heard someone say “that’s my right!” Or, “health care, food, shelter, education, is my right.” Or, “I can say anything I want, it’s my right.” But how many of you have actually thought through exactly what is a right?
My definition is this. A right is any action that you take [...]
What at times is worse than the Jurassic Press not covering something? The Jurassic Press covering something.
The all-encompassing government-Internet-power-grab that is Network Neutrality rarely gets outside-the-Tech-World media attention. But Thursday the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted in Democrat Party-line fashion to begin its process of [...]
Leave it to The Gay Lady to be a day late and a few brain cells short. The New York Times recently published an article by some journalism-school retread about the Cliven Bundy situation, a piece containing all the usual talking points about how the “racist” rancher’s [...]
This past week a long-existing pernicious problem finally broke through to wider attention – thanks in large part to a two-weeks-ago editorial by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commissioner Ajit Pai.
The FCC Wades Into the Newsroom
Why is the agency studying ‘perceived station bias’ and [...]
Bill O’Reilly was pleased that he was allowed to ask questions and for the most part Obama refused to answer the questions. These types of interviews are for the most part useless. Those that like Obama swore O’Reilly was rude. And those who don’t trust Obama saw [...]
Hypocrisy, thy name is liberalism. What a difference a few years makes.
Remember when “progressive” media types chided President George W. Bush till they were blue in the face for “going it alone” on Iraq? Well, apparently “going it alone” is totally cool if you have a [...]
