    The news cycle whipped itself up into a national discussion about flag burning this week after President-elect Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday. After the now-infamous tweet, countless voices on both the Left and the Right condemned the statement, each making their own arguments, most condemning the act of flag burning while defending your right to do so.

    I know it is bad to make light of tragedy, but the quote from the survivors or witnesses to the Oakland warehouse/artist colony/concert venue fire seem pretty much par for course given the nature of that population. http://www.cnn.com/2016/12/03/us/cal...ire/index.html Quote: There were only two ways out when a fast-spreading furious fire broke out during a festive gathering of artists on the second floor of a warehouse in Oakland.

    While the most of the country has voted to veer away from the transformation of America spearheaded by President Obama, California has vowed to stay the course, at least on the environmental front. In terms of air quality, the state has enacted new regulations to limit how much methane gas cows are allowed to emit while farting. California Air Resources Board science adviser Ryan McCarthy called the attempt “truly ambitious. No one really knows how we’re going to get this done. The State Assembly deserves credit for taking on a task that may well be impossible.” “The obvious first response...

    Hillary won a plurality, nothing more, but lost the election. That's the way it is. I am quite fascinated with the obsession the Left currently has with the popular vote for President. As usual this is a matter of expediency, desperation to get their own way given the results of the election, and the usual public deception for how our system actually works. There certainly isn’t a shred of principle involved. So let’s investigate this a bit. We are a Republic, thank God, not a Democracy, so the popular vote is irrelevant to presidential elections. It simply doesn’t matter, it...

    Freedom has a very strong magnet and no man has the right to take lives and freedom away from others just because of divergent political opinions Forbes estimated Fidel Castro’s wealth at $900 million while the country he ruled with an iron fist, 11.39 million people, lived in poverty and dignified squalor under his boot. The deceased “El Comandante” Castro left behind a huge fortune, a private island called Caya Piedra, mansions, a marina with his private yacht called Aquarama, bank accounts, an alleged gold mine, and thousands of worthless Marxist speeches.

    Meanwhile, it’s high time for a new slogan. Call it, ‘Save the Environment…from ‘environmental’ protesters and the U.S. Army Corps Engineers In yesteryears Hollywood got it right when it portrayed native people as being on to government authorities whom they described as: “two-faced” and wont to “speak with a forked tongue”. The governments of later generations may have fooled the masses with their doublespeak and campaign promises that melt like the snow in spring, but it’s all but impossible to fool a people who routinely faced the elements and followed herds to keep their families fed.

    Elections have consequences. The presidential election of Donald Trump has been occupying most of the news space. The gun culture did very well in state and local elections.  In Missouri, a Republican, Eric Greitens, replaces former Governor Nixon.  Governor Nixon was decidedly anti-Second Amendment.  An omnibus gun law reform bill was passed over his veto in Missouri last year. That bill included permitless or "Consititutional" carry. Originally the bill contained a watered down provision for the exercise of Second Amendment rights at public institutions of higher learning. Current Missouri law allows campus administrations to ban weapons on campus.  All...

Many of these brave men and women were struggling financially to meet the repayment terms. Shortly after the Department of Defense took a substantial P.R. hit once the details behind this travesty became widely known, Secretary Ash Carter announced he was suspending this program. Lawmakers have formally hammered out a compromise agreement that allows the Pentagon to forgive bonuses and benefits that were improperly awarded....

    By now you know that President Elect Trump took a call from the President of Taiwan and simultaneously lit on fire the underpants of the mainstream media and maybe the leadership of China too. Apparently taking a phone call from the president of Taiwan is a major diplomatic change from the so-called “One China Policy” that imagines Taiwan as a rogue province of China, not its own country. Reports are saying this call was planned, not a mistake on the Trump team’s side. Was this a mistake by Trump? If you look at this call through the filter of normal...

    No clear-thinking conservative attacked Barack and Michelle Obama’s children over the last eight years. Sasha and (until recently) Malia Obama are just teens, and no matter how nasty politics gets, for the most part decent people (and the media) go out of their way not to make the children of politicians the story. Or at least, they do if the politician is a Democrat. Consider what Rosie O’Donnell recently said about Barron Trump, the youngest child of President-Elect Donald Trump. The cantankerous comic, who joined and left “The View” not once, but twice, sent an outrageous Tweet about the ten-year-old...

Obama will relinquish office on Jan. 20 to Republican President-elect Donald Trump, who made caustic comments about the sergeant during the presidential campaign that drew complaints from Bergdahl’s defense team. Trump savaged Bergdahl as “a no-good traitor who should have been executed” and criticized the prisoner swap in 2014 that won his release....

The new user was offering to give access to German secrets to other militants for a future terrorist strike. This set off bells and whistles in the agency. To find out if this new person was real or just trolling the chat room the agents lured the participant into a PM chat (private message). What they found out amazed them: They had a spy in their corporate family. The double agents was found out to...

Paying the highest business taxes in the world makes it exceptionally difficult to do business in the United States compared to many other parts of the world such as Ireland where the corporate/business tax rate is 11%. Business has thrived in Ireland since the corporate tax rate was lowered to that percentage, resulting in large numbers of new jobs as businesses grew,...

    The Marine Corps is considering suppressing all small arms. Military organizations have historically been slow to adopt new technologies.

Suppressors have been commonly used by sportsmen around the world for decades long before widespread adoption by any military. The United States is the exception, due to irrational regulation. The Marine Corp is in the process of equipping an entire battalion with suppressed small arms. From ameriforce.net: In...

    Two questions. One: Who initiated the call? And two: Did he understand the significance of what he was doing when it happened? Not sure about the answer to the first question. I’ve got a guess about the second. Donald Trump risks opening up a major diplomatic dispute with China before he has even been inaugurated after speaking on the phone on Friday with Tsai Ying-wen, the president of Taiwan. Trump’s spokesman also confirmed that the call happened. The U.S. maintains unofficial relations with Taiwan but hasn’t conducted official diplomacy since the end of Carter’s administration, as a concession to maintaining...

How is this crony capitalism? As far as tax credits or subsidies are concerned, those came from the state of IN. The point is, is that now's not the time to be engaging in this self-defeating crap. Trump already got his hands full by fighting off Hillary from stealing the election from him and walking on eggshells while Obola is still in the WH. Discuss this privately with Trump...

    Amy Schumer is reportedly close to being cast as Barbie in the upcoming live action film based on a doll. In a PG plot sure to set off empowerment alarms everywhere, the movie involves Schumer’s Barbie character being booted from the town of Barbieland for not meeting the town’s standards. Barbie expands her horizons, enters the real world and various lessons about self-esteem and body image are learned. Deadline describes it as “a fish-out-of-water story reminiscent of films like Splash and Big,” intended as a comedic twist on what people traditionally expect of Barbie. For the studio, Schumer’s polarizing brand...

    When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent. Meanwhile, the invisible hand that best orchestrates a free people’s free enterprise system gets amputated. Then, special interests creep in and manipulate markets. Republicans oppose this, remember? Instead, we support competition on a level playing field, remember? Because we know special interest crony capitalism is one big fail.

    Publicist James La Force and husband-writer Stephen Henderson have decided to forgo their annual holiday party known for it’s somewhat raucous atmosphere, due to the outcome of the presidential election. In an interesting approach to this years’ election drama, the couple went ahead and printed their invitation pre-Trump victory with an illustration of Hillary in a Santa suit waving a flag with the caption “Make America Merry Again.” Alas when she did not win the duo, who wrote, “So confident we were of her victory, we designed and printed the attached invitation before Nov. 8th,” were presumably in that “liberal...

    I shall continue to cherish, relish, enjoy, celebrate the death and passing of worthless brute, Fidel Castro It was about 1:00 a.m., Saturday night, when my wife woke me up to tell me of the passing of Fidel Castro. As I was still half-sleep, and in lieu of the fact that, in our wishful ways, we, the Cuban-Americans in exile, had killed Castro many times over in the past, the “Cry Wolf” syndrome kicked-in as a ‘defense mechanism’ to spare me the emotional roller coaster, which had made us, time and time again, go from exhilarating highs to lugubrious downs...
