    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 7-30-2014 | MOTUS
    "Today is a reminder that the United States means what it says," Obama said during a press conference from the South Lawn of the White House. Right before Obama spoke, the Treasury Department unveiled the new sanctions. They target Russia's energy, arms, and finance sectors. Business Insider Interesting: Barry has targeted the same 3 sectors in America. Since hes crippled our economy, maybe he thought this would reestablish equilibrium in the world. And if you disagree, youre probably a racist.Posted from: Michelle Obamas Mirror
  • Early Returns On Michigan As a Right-to-Work State: Incomes Rising

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 7/30/2014 | Tom Gantert
    When Michigan passed right-to-work in December of 2012, critics were quick to predict that workers compensation would plummet. Union officials derided it as right-to-work for less. Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer, D-East Lansing, said that right-to-work legislation would lower employee wages. But the early returns show that hasnt happened. Michigans per-capita personal income increased from $38,291 in 2012 (before right-to-work became law) to $39,215 in 2013, according to the U.S. Department of Commerces Bureau of Economic Analysis. That increase was the ninth highest in the country. Per-capita personal income includes income from all sources divided by the number of people...

  • Obamas Support Of Islamic Socialism Seen In Israel

    According to President Obama, Muslims built the very fabric of our nation. This is interesting because the very fabric of our nation was built during the colonial period. During this time there wasnt a single Muslim in America. In fact, theres no record of a mosque in the United States until 1915 when a group of Albanians built one in Maine. Obamas rewriting of history is on one hand ridiculous and on the other hand completely understandable. This President favors Islamic socialism in the middle east and he favors socialism at home. Hes in bed with Islam because it suits...

    Way back, even before the beginning of Barry's first term, we opined that he belonged in GQ magazine, not the White House. We were reminded of this upon reading the delightful Bud Norman's essay "The end of Language" in which he despairs of the loss of common words like "fop." The disappearance of the word fop from the language seems to have coincided with the disappearance of societys sneering contempt for men who take excessive pride in their physical appearance that it once conveyed, for instance, and as a result American society is inundated with preening pretty boys and empty...

    There were no police at the time the Constitution was written and the Bill of Rights ratified. Police as we know them did not come into being until a couple of decades later, in the UK, with Sir Robert Peel. There, giving the police power was resisted as an infringement on local power for a considerable time, and police only gradually spread across the United States. Police forces have taken over many of the functions of local militias, and are for the most part, locally controlled. The closest modern equivalent of to the militia of the constitutional era are...

    ABC News / The Associated Press ^ | July 29, 2014 | Candice Choi, AP Food Industry Writer
    McDonald's is coming under intensifying pressure for labor practices at its U.S. restaurants. The National Labor Relations Board said Tuesday that the world's biggest hamburger chain could be named as a joint employer in several complaints regarding worker rights at franchise-owned restaurants. The decision is pivotal because it could expose McDonald's Corp. to liability for management practices in those locations. It also comes as protests for higher pay have captured national attention, with labor groups calling for pay of $15 an hour and the right to unionize. Organizers had been pushing to get McDonald's named as a joint employer at...

    After the so-called death of the Occupy movement, political activism is making a comeback in Sacramento. In June and July, law enforcement arrested 47 protesters over 12 days at the state Capitol. Those hauled away were members of the newly formed 99Rise movement. They peacefully remained in the building under the rotunda after curfew, in solidarity with their goal of getting big money out of politics. That hasnt happened yet, of course, but the protesters made headlines by lobbying a few billsand actually getting two passed. Some of these activists marched nearly 500 miles from Los Angeles to Sacramento, and...

The Lancet, a top tier scientific journal by all accounts, did a great dis-service to the medical community. The publication of an extremely biased one-sided analysis of such a complex situation is outrageous and full of lies.

And while individuals are definitely entitled to their opinions, hiding behind an MD degree does not entitle one to defame under the pretense of a publication in a...

As she vacillates between the Fox News stints that keep her political clout alive and the reality television gigs that seem like a more natural fit for her talents, I always wonder whether this is the moment that she will commit to a single path. The debut of the Sarah Palin Channel, a subscription-based multimedia site that Palin and her team launched yesterday, is a disappointing combination of these muddled...

Charlie Crist led the race by as many as 15 points in polls taken early this year, but has been unable to muster strong support from minority...

Only exchanges set up by the states can qualify for these taxpayer subsidies. D.C.

Given a contradictory ruling from the Fourth Circuit Appeals Court (which directly affects four states in the Southeast), the issue is likely to be taken up by...

Calls to reduce financial costs often face scrutiny on the grounds of potentially compromised security. In a Lansing hearing on July 1, which I was able to attend, the Council of State Governments brought to Michigan several suggestions related to criminal sentencing, claiming that these policy changes could ease the financial burden on taxpayers while simultaneously maintaining or even improving public safety. The Council advocates for the greater use of supervision terms as part of criminal sentences, with close monitoring...

    In a Salon review Sunday of Ralph Naders spring 2014 book Unstoppable, Bill Curry, former White House counselor to President Bill Clinton, takes Democrats led by Clinton and Barack Obama to task for making their party an indentured servant of Wall Street and gifting economic populism to the right. Curry endorses Naders view that the present is ripe for a populist revival. Looking back to the Gilded Age, when [p]owerful trusts were turning farmers into wage slaves and the worlds greatest democracy into just another corrupt oligarchy, he notes that agrarian populists busted price fixing railroads and granaries, fought for...

    There have been rumors flying about on what Alan Gura has agreed to on a stay on the Palmer v. D.C. case. These were fueled in part by the wording in the District's request for a stay, which originally claimed that it was unopposed. According to Alan Gura on his blog, that is not the case: I have a better understanding of what the city will now do. The city will probably file an appeal thats within their right. The city would ask for a stay pending the resolution of the appeal they can ask for that,...

    Coach is Right ^ | 7/29/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The National Journal, an online arm of the Unipartys media propaganda machine, is cautioning Democrats not to get too excited about the possibility of the economic surge helping them in November. This begs several questions not the least of which is: What economic surge in what country are these morons talking about? The National Journal is obviously practicing cut and paste journalism. They are printing Barack Obamas lies about the economy as if they were true. They dont bother to do even a cursory search of available data to determine the reliability of the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. These...

The protesters are unhappy because the school has chosen to hire Peter Beck, a person with white skin, over other, unidentified candidates, The Fresno Bee reports. Beck will teach...

    Image credit: Jimmy Demello Artworks[/caption] The last time I was in Houston, I had to change the fuse in my paradox meter after meeting a self-described pro-choice Republican woman, who was also a lawyer. I told her at least she was better than Wendy Davis, to which no response was offered. I said it a second time, and with a puff of white smoke, the paradox-meter died. Dang, the fuse just blew again, reading Times August 4 issue, Religion section article Atheist Churches Gain PopularityEven in the Bible Belt (behind a paywall). Yup, the Atheist Church they wrote about...
