A new report appears to show bad news on the financial front as “the federal budget deficit this year will increase in relationship to the overall size of the economy for the first time since 2009 and continue to grow over the coming decade.” The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that the deficit will grow by an …

Democrats are keen on not letting a crisis go to waste. As soon as the Virginia shooting took place, liberals were immediately calling for more gun control even though the man who murdered the two news crew workers jumped through all the legal hoops. You can’t legislate against evil and crazy. Donald Trump has lit …

Have you heard the one about the waitress who didn’t want a tip? You’ll never believe the punchline — or maybe you will. Chloe Hough, a waitress at Boss Hawgs Barbecue in Topeka, Kansas, was working her last shift at the BBQ establishment when she eyed Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback at one of her assigned tables. …

The 2016 presidential election season has begun and already the left is attacking the Republicans. They have already begun to tear down our more conservative presidential candidates. Popular Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who has been atop most polls recently, is a perfect example, with the left’s lame attempt to cast him as a dunce due …

I’ve seen a lot of articles that describe President Obama’s call for “a $175 billion tax cut for the middle class, faster and cheaper broadband internet, a week of paid sick leave, discounted mortgages paid for by raising taxes on the rich and inheritances” as Robin Hood economic policy. Politico gets it wrong with this …

I’m watching Wreck it Ralph (2012) as I’m writing this. Ralph wrecks things. Felix fixes what Ralph wrecks. Ralph doesn’t like his bad guy image, so he “goes turbo” to get a medal to join Felix who gets a medal all the time. “Going turbo” is a bad thing in the arcade world. If a character …

Crazy liberals

It’s not hard to find people who are ignorant about other people’s beliefs. All you have to do is watch man-in-the street interviews. A good portion of the population is ignorant on a whole host of topics. Even students at some very prestigious universities are more familiar with the latest Kardashian event than with what’s …

Minimum Wage

Fast food workers across the United States went on strike to protest minimum wage pay. They want their salaries doubled to $15 per hour — twice the federal minimum wage rate. If the $15-wage-rate goes into effect, business will drop off and layoffs will take place. Some of the people who went on strike will …

Dr. Gary North always has a way of offering a different perspective on current topics. I found his comments on Robin Williams especially interesting. It was originally titled “Robin Williams Got us Thinking” and first appeared on Dr. North’s site GaryNorth.com, one of the most unique websites on the internet.  — Gary DeMar “There, but …

This is a sad story. “Five years ago Steve Mason’s 27-year-old daughter Lisa passed away unexpectedly from liver failure, leaving behind three children—ages 4, 7, and 9 at the time. “Steve and his wife Darnelle took in their three grandchildren, despite knowing how much of a struggle it would be to support them. Steve, who …

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the War on Poverty. It appears that poverty won that war. Jesus said you will always have the poor with you. He also said, “For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat….to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, …

Good samaritan

Reza Aslan is a self-describe biblical expert and he author of Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth. Liberal theologians love his exegesis in the same way that liberal economists love Thomas Piketty’s 700-page Capital in the Twenty-First Century written in honor of Karl Marx’s Das Capital. These books are rarely read. They …
