Pennsylvania State House Votes to Reduce its Size

PA State Capitol

Yes, it’s a step in the right direction. Yes, it is relatively rare. But before anyone starts thinking that the politicians voting to reduce the number of members that will be sitting on Pennsylvania’s Assembly floor are considering the possibility of surrendering their own positions for the greater good, think again. Yesterday’s passage of House Bill 153 is step one ...

The NAACP Is Racist

In yet another chapter in the Trayvon Martin saga, The Daily Caller reported on a letter that was sent to Seminole County, Fla. NAACP president Turner Clayton by a member of George Zimmerman’s family. “It’s time for you to end the race issue in this matter and call for cooler heads to prevail,” the letter reads. “If something happens to ...

Coming Soon to a Doctor’s Office Near You – The Global Warming Debate

When Chad Kent, the resident Constitutionalist here, came to me about a story on Global Warming folks weaseling their way into the field of medicine, I was moderately intrigued. He told me about a paper that had been published by American Family Physician, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Academy of Family Physicians, that was giving physicians suggestions on how ...

U.S. and Pakistan – We Need Them, but Do They Need Us?

While everyone has been running about talking about the Trayvon Martin case, SCOTUS on Obamacare, and the various endorsements for the Romney campaign, our leaders have been trying to haggle out a deal with Pakistan. Given a few problems last year – killing Osama bin Laden on Pakistani soil, and the deaths of 24 Pakistani soldiers from a fire-fight with ...

Rick Santorum and His Uphill Battle to the Convention

Aaron Blake almost got it absolutely right today, when giving the run-down on what Rick Santorum needs to do to survive in this primary. The five states mentioned are definitely must-wins. However, that goal does not exist in a vacuum, and is probably going to be affected by at least a few things that will be utterly out of Santorum’s ...

Obamacare, the Constitution, and the Founders – What SCOTUS should be debating

As we’re on the last day of arguments before the Supreme Court on the constitutionality of Obamacare, there are pundits from all sides offering their thoughts on every look, twitch, word, and tone coming from the Justices during the sessions. The vast majority are focused on the elasticity of the Commerce Clause and today in particular, on the lack of ...

Media Matters, Rush Limbaugh, and the Delusional Left-Wing

Media Matters for America has had a hard-on to nail Rush Limbaugh to the wall for years now. Since they have taken some degree of credit for the departure of Glenn Beck from FoxNews network, they’ve been riding high on their perceived accomplishments. So when the whole Sandra Fluke affair came on the scene, they leaped into action. Contrary to ...

Obama, Liberals, and Radical Islam – The Love Affair Continues

President Barack Obama knows better than Congress what the U.S. needs to do. In spite of any objections from the Hill, our country is sending $1.5 billion in aid to Egypt. While there’s been many comments bandied about on the right about the dangers of the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama’s reply has been to deny any potential problems with the organization. ...

Even caught the attention of the folks over at tosh.o. But this isn’t the first time Featherman has used shocking video to get his message out there.

How ethical is your state?

The results of the State Integrity Investigation, a joint effort by The Center for Public Integrity, Global Integrity, and Public Radio International, were released today. Presumably to keep things relatively simple, grades were given to each state on an A through F scale. Now, not to keep everyone in suspense, no one did well. There wasn’t a single state that ...

Santorum is Liberal?

Yes, there is someone out there that thinks Rick Santorum has a liberal streak. As if to prove what I’ve continually said about the variety of conservative views out there, I found someone that actually made at least a semi-valid argument about Santorum being liberal. Pittsburgh’s Conservative Examiner, J.J. Jackson, offered the argument that Santorum’s promise to wage war on ...

Pennsylvania Voter ID as the Left-Wing Hot-Button Issue

Voter ID has been the topic du-jour for the left-wing as an issue that will cause the end of voter freedom for millions of people. Well, maybe not millions, but quite a few. And all of those people have the absolute right to cast their ballots. Requiring that voters show valid identification is onerous, and discriminatory against the elderly, minorities, ...
