Hey, NYT: What’s a “White Hispanic”?

“White Hispanic.” That’s how the New York Times, Reuters and other media outlets have opted to describe George Zimmerman, a man who would simply be Hispanic if he hadn’t shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. — Jonah Goldberg. Goldberg later explains that the NYT and others are using that term because Zimmerman has one white […]

Boortz on Treyvon Martin.

Neil Boortz had some interesting thoughts on the Treyvon Martin case today, starting with the fringe elements in the African-American community using this shooting as an opportunity for political expediency, as if a single incident of an Hispanic man killing an African-American man is somehow an indictment of racism against an entire community, state or […]

Madison on the precipice.

In the mind of contemporary progressivism, these words of [James] Madison from the Federalist Papers simply don’t compute: “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.” They are an antiquated 18th-century sentiment unsuited to our […]

Cornyn on Obamacare.

Here’s Sen. John Cornyn’s take on the Obamacare mandate being reviewed by the Supreme Court this week: Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution authorizes U.S. lawmakers to regulate certain “activities” related to interstate commerce. For example, if Americans are engaged in the “production, distribution, or consumption of commodities,” Congress is allowed to control how […]

Wants = needs = rights = obligations.

Here’s a sadly true commentary on the entitlement mindset of American populace by Charles Sykes of The Fiscal Times. His setting regards a recent heckler at a Mitt Romney rally who made the following ridiculous statement: “So you’re all for like, ‘yay, freedom,’ and all this stuff. And ‘yay, like pursuit of happiness.’ You know […]

“Free” healthcare and the death of innovation.

A friend of mine recently noted he received an MRI exam just a few days after his doctor ordered it. This corresponded with a family member of mine who received her MRI a day after the doctor ordered it. During a conversation about this the friend said he feared that Obamacare would lead to “the […]

Obamacare to render you powerless.

Below is a commentary from Rob Johnson about how employers are expected to count the beans in favor of the fines over continuing the healthcare coverage of their employees. But isn’t that likely the point of the government system: if the Feds can create hundreds of millions of dependents on the government dole — from […]

Least conservative – Romney or Santorum?

I’m of the opinion that economically — which to me is without a doubt the single most important issue in this election (and isn’t is usually) — any one of the Republican candidates would be a drastic and remarkable improvement over the hardcore Keynesian-Wilsonian (best case) and Marxian-Frenchified (worst case) fiscal liberals in the Obama […]

Your taxdollars at work.

If you live in Michigan, that is — but check your local government reps to see if your state programs work the same, as it wouldn’t surprise me to know it’s no different in the majority of the union. [WND] A young Michigan woman who recently won $1 million in the state lottery is causing […]
