  • 50K Minimum Wage Job Cuts 'Worth It,' Says Charlie Crist

    10/23/2014 3:07:19 PM PDT · by Bettyprob
    Dallas Blog ^ | 10-22-2014 | Tom McGregor
    Charlie Crist, a Democrat, is campaigning for Florida Governor by saying it's "worth it" that over 50,000 minimum wage workers in Florida will lose their jobs. The Daily Caller reports that, "Last night CNN’s Jake Tapper moderated a debate between Republican incumbent Governor Rick Scott and former Republican Governor and current Democratic nominee Charlie Crist." When asked about the possibility that over 50,000 minimum wage workers in Florida could lose their jobs if minimum wage rates go higher, Charlie Crist is quoted as saying that, “Well, the reason I think it’s worth it is people deserve it.”

    OCTOBER 23, 2014 Berkeley Taps Bill Maher for Graduation Speaker The ultra-PC school names him grad speaker. By Katherine Timpf The University of California–Berkeley has announced that polarizing TV host Bill Maher will be its winter graduation speaker. “The host of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, comedian Maher is known for his political commentary and satire,” writes The Daily Californian, the official student newspaper. Other things Maher is famous for include calling Sarah Palin a “t**t” and a “c**t” (comments that offended even the liberal National Organization of Women), saying Christians are schizophrenics, and comparing “retarded children” to his...

    As the final furlongs of the 2014 midterm election season approach, it is important that as conservatives we reflect upon not simply on polling data and the issues that drive individual races, but precisely what drives our political activism. While establishment Republicans and Tea Party enthusiasts alike fully recognize the failings and inadequacies of the GOP, we need fully recognize that our goals of a more perfect Union and the future of our children depends on electing men and women who share and reflect our values to the US Senate, Governors mansions and (possibly of even greater importance) state legislature...

    This is a generic version of an Op-Ed I sent to my local paper after a fellow Catholic was granted a Community Voices Op-Ed extolling the actual and theological “beauty” of the LGBTQ lifestyles that we should virtually worship them. She provided copious unrelated Scriptures to support her position. A link to her original Op-Ed piece is enclosed below. My local paper is so strongly pro LGBTQ that it regularly publishes strings of Op-Ed’s by gay men and women, yet relegates responses to an occasional Letter to the Editor.

The suspect above is accused of stealing money from a resident, then returning to attack a resident of the home involved.  From kgw.com: "The resident...

    Whether the mandatory vaccines work or not, they will most likely be covered under Obamacare By failing to impose a travel ban, the Obama administration allowed a carrier of Ebola from Liberia into the United States, where he infected two nurses, one of whom was allowed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to travel on a plane. But don’t worry. The publication Politico says the system “is working.” The “experts” say they still don’t know how or why two nurses treating the Ebola carrier contracted the disease. So-called “revised guidelines” for handling Ebola have now been issued by the...

    To change Islam, we would have to understand why its ugliness still speaks to Muslims Every few years the debate over reforming Islam bubbles up from the depths of a culture that largely censors any suggestion that Islam needs reforming. But Islam does not exist apart from Muslims. It is not an abstract entity that can be changed without changing its followers. And if Islam has not changed, that is because Muslims do not want it to. Mohammed and key figures in Islam provided a template, but that template would not endure if it did not fit the worldview of...

The media have jumped on the story for its obvious headline value, but at the same time they have served us poorly by misreporting, minimizing or simply refusing to report this administration’s glaring failure to protect American citizens.

    A University of Pittsburgh newspaper writer has declared it offensive to condemn ISIS. ISIS. The terrorist organization murdering innocents and cutting off the heads of journalists. How could condemning ISIS possibly be offensive? Author Eli Talbert, a Pitt columnist, explains in a piece called "Why Condemning ISIS is Offensive." He begins by saying that ISIS "might also be a concern," but what is much, much more "disturbing," according to Talbert? Moderate Muslims denouncing the terrorist group. First, he cites President Obama's call for Muslims to denounce ISIS as an example of "thinly disguised Islamophobia." Talbert retorts that expecting any Muslim...

They haven’t run a single story on the midterms. Compare this to 2006 when, during the same period, the big three networks ran 159 stories.

Kirk activates the computer system of a car he swiped for a joyride, and the Nokia logo comes up. It’s nice to see Nokia’s still in business in the twenty-third century. Such simple touches help to humanize the Star Trek universe, which had drifted a bit too far from recognizable human experience for audiences to fully engage with its characters. The presence of a good old-fashioned corporate logo in the new movie put me in mind of a long-ago, free-wheeling,...

About five million Muslims live in France.

Performers of La Traviata didn’t notice the woman until the second act, at which point they refused to continue performing until she was...

    I do not know where the above picture was taken.   I recall that I saw many empty holsters on police in Panama at shift change.   The practice was that the police did not keep a pistol with them; they were issued one at work, and turned it in at the end of the shift.  I vaguely recall seeing a banana or plantain in a couple of them. I understand that Mexican police generally keep their firearms with them, but several other countries in Central and South America have the same policy as I saw in Panama.   Police in...

    Everything you need to know about Beltway nepotism, corporate cronyism and corruption can be found in the biography of Robert Hunter Biden. Where are the Occupy Wall Street rabble-rousers and enemies of elitist privilege when you need them? Straining their neck muscles to look the other way. The youngest son of Vice President Joe Biden made news last week after The Wall Street Journal revealed he had been booted from the Navy Reserve for cocaine use. His drug abuse was certainly no surprise to the Navy, which issued him a waiver for a previous drug offense before commissioning him as...

    The next few months will be decisive for the Iranian regime, which sees a strategic defeat looming on the horizon as all of its red lines in the Middle East are being trampled After years of enjoying the position of the main hegemon in Iraq and Syria, Iran is now facing an escalating dilemma as other powers have entered the scene to deal with the rising threat of the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL), an extremist group which has occupied stretches of Iraqi and Syrian territory in the past months. Previously, Iran had taken advantage of the...

    “Skirt-fronting” could well become the new buzz word in international diplomacy The possibility of Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott shirt-fronting Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit in Brisbane next month over the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 in Ukrainian sovereign territory with the loss of all on board - including 38 Australians - has receded following Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop’s 25 minute meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the Asian Europe Summit held in Milan this week. Abbott had vowed: “I’m going to shirtfront Mr Putin. I am going to be saying to Mr...

    The Times columnist suggests a government crackdown for selling conservative books too quickly. Big-government aficionado Paul Krugman is calling for “public action to curb the power” of an entity he can’t quite bring himself to call a monopoly, even as he nonetheless compares its “abuses” to those of John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil company. The subject of his ire? “Amazon.com, the giant online retailer, has too much power, and it uses that power in ways that hurt America,” Krugman whines. “Does Amazon really have robber-baron-type market power? When it comes to books, definitely,” Krugman insists. “Amazon overwhelmingly dominates online book...

    The outcome of the midterm elections will have a dramatic effect on Obama’s ability to continue his destruction of the U.S. economy and other policies. One man has died of Ebola in the U.S. and he came here from Liberia. Two of the nurses that tended him are in intensive care and likely to survive. A third was thought to be infected, but wasn’t. That news has been sufficient to keep most Americans calm as the media has done its best to exploit Ebola-related news. The public absorbed the facts and came to their own conclusion. An October 8 Pew...

    On CNN Tuesday night, activist and former Obama green jobs czar Van Jones and television and radio host and author of "Hands Off My Gun" Dana Loesch discussed the latest Palin-bashing extravaganza the media is currently wallowing in. During the festivities, Van Jones let it slip that maybe Sarah Palin wasn't as dumb and worthless as Democrats have tried to paint her for every second of every day since the moment she took the national stage. He opined:  Sarah Palin .. people forget. She had the Democratic party shaking in our boots in 2008. She came out, she gave that speech...
