What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Liberals in California think their sex-offender laws are too strict: California officials announced Thursday that the state would stop enforcing a key provision of a voter-approved law that prohibits all registered sex offenders from living near schools. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said it would no longer impose the blanket restrictions outlined in […]

The Riot Ideology in Ferguson

Ginning up racial strife is bad for business: Fusion, a Website that’s an, err fusion between Univision and ABC/Disney is shocked that Ferguson real estate prices are “Down nearly 50 percent since Michael Brown’s death.” There’s more than a hint of bias in that subhead, as the cause wasn’t Brown’s death after he slugged a […]

Our Moral Superiors™

This was a comment I wrote on a previous post: Here’s the thing that bothers me: Like anybody else, I’m just trying to work for a living and pay my bills and raise my children.

The district’s attorneys also introduced the […]

Brian David Mitchell, the perverted self-proclaimed “prophet” who kidnapped Elizabeth Smart, had been a homeless panhandler […]

The Unspeakably Vile David Brock

The latest news from Evil, Inc.: In a major power play that aligns liberal muscle more fully behind the Democratic Party — and Hillary Clinton — the self-described right-wing hitman-turned-Clinton enforcer David Brock is taking over a leading watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. Brock was elected chairman of the group’s board […]
