  • In the Shopping Cart of a Food Stamp Household: Lots of Soda

    New York Times ^ | Jan 13, 2017 | Anahad O'Connor
    What do households on food stamps buy at the grocery store? The answer was largely a mystery until now. The United States Department of Agriculture, which oversees the $74 billion food stamp program called SNAP, has published a detailed report that provides a glimpse into the shopping cart of the typical household that receives food stamps. The findings show that the No. 1 purchases by SNAP households are soft drinks, which accounted for 5 percent of the dollars they spent on food. The category of ‘sweetened beverages,’ which includes fruit juices, energy drinks and sweetened teas, accounted for almost 10...

    Actress Sigourney Weaver offered a dark picture of the world’s future during her speech at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night. In her remarks, Weaver warned Americans that if we don’t act to combat climate change, doom is imminent. The DNC then aired a video featuring Weaver as the narrator. “It’s happening now,” Weaver says in the video. “The droughts, the record heat waves,” etc. “This is not something we’ve seen before,” she claims. “Our children are at risk.”

    WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - It's the No. 1 question headed into the primary season: Does Donald Trump merely have fans, or does the national front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination have voters who will mobilize come caucus day? The definitive answer won't arrive until first-to-vote Iowa heads to the polls on Feb. 1, but interviews with dozens of voters, political operatives, party leaders and campaign volunteers in the past week paint a mixed picture of Trump's efforts to make sure they do. Even some of the billionaire real-estate mogul's most ardent backers wonder whether the political novice has...

    Where is the black leadership now that a grand jury has decided not to indict the police officer that killed Michael Brown? Where is Al Sharpton? He advertises himself as a spokesman for the best interests of black America. But he is absent. Where is Jesse Jackson, another popular media personality who says he speaks for black America? He’s missing in action, too. It breaks my heart to see televised images of violence from Ferguson, Missouri juxtaposed next to President Obama, the first black president. The president represents black power beyond anyone’s imagination just a few years ago. President Obama...

We should loudly applaud any meetings of liberals to confront their inner racist. As I think Ann Coulter said once: If we can just get them to stop hating white people, it would be a good start. In any case it would have been laudable that there are efforts to teach youth to appreciate each other and overcome racism, even though...

    FNN Exclusive. It has been reported that a perfect correlation has been identified between drinking koolaid and mental deterioration and dysfunction. Researchers have discovered a chemical reaction of treated water in urban areas with the ingredients of koolaid. The reaction causes the koolaid to become toxic and destroys much of the mental abilities of the koolaid drinker. If the koolaid drinker is also wearing a tin foil hat, the effect is accelerated and becomes much more devastating. Scientists are speculating that the tin foil hat funnels cosmic rays into the koolaid drinkers brain which accelerates and magnifies the reaction. Several...

    At first, the numbers seemed too absurd to be true: did Mitt Romney really receive zero votes in 59 Philadelphia voting districts? Did Barack Obama really outpoll him by a combined 19,605 to 0 votes cast in these 59 districts. .......Obama was producing nearly comparable numbers in inner-cities throughout America, especially those in contested states. Worse than fraud is the process that turned nearly 20,000 black Philadelphians -- and millions of inner-city dwellers throughout the country -- into automatons. Hope does not produce this kind of regimentation. Fear does. In looking at these numbers, in fact, one can begin to...

    As devotees of Barack Obama know all too well, qualities that made him so attractive as a candidate — an affinity for subtle arguments, a tendency to carefully weigh his options — have at times proved less useful in his role as president. That carefulness has been read as indecisiveness. The subtle arguments have sounded, to some ears, like hedging. In response, the president has simplified his rhetoric. The nuances of the 2009 Cairo speech about relations between the U.S. and the Muslim world have given way to chest thumping over killing Osama bin Laden. The sophistication of the speech...

So here goes… Mitt Romney will not be the Republican nominee for president in 2012. Neither will Newt Gingrich. And certainly not Ron Paul or Rick Santorum. No, the Republican candidate for president will be someone who isn’t even a candidate for president right now....

    Kool-Aid. It conjures up contradictory images.  On the one hand, it brings to mind thirsty gulps, drink-stained lips, and happy children.  On the other, it suggests the shadow of the Jonestown massacre, where a cult leader killed his followers, including children, by spiking their sugary drinks with poison.  It tasted good going down but led to inevitable death. These days, too many of our children are drinking spiked Kool-Aid. ] And it’s being served to them by unwitting educators, dysfunctional celebrities, government leaders, and the whole of pop culture. What’s in the Kool-Aid? The sweet flavor of unrestrained sexual pleasure...

    Even in heavily Democratic California, President Barack Obama's job approval rating has plummeted among voters, largely on his handling of the economy, according to a new Field Poll. Though Obama is strongly favored to win California in his re-election bid next year, the poll suggests many Democrats may vote for him only begrudgingly, and it is yet another indication of weakening support nationwide. "When you're seeing vulnerability in a state like California, I think that really is ominous for his national standing," Field Poll director Mark DiCamillo said. For the first time since Obama took office in 2009, less than...

    It's time to pour out the multiculti Kool-Aid. That was the message from British Prime Minister David Cameron as he attacked "state multiculturalism" for letting Islamic radicals prosper virtually unchecked in the West. Instead of celebrating Western freedoms, the Brits have played blind while extremists recruit followers in universities, mosques and online chat rooms. No more namby-pamby. "Frankly," he told a security conference Saturday, "we need a lot less of the passive tolerance of recent years and a much more active, muscular liberalism." That requires actively promoting values like freedom of speech and equal rights for all -- and expecting...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi maintained solid support among her core backers in the California delegation Thursday as she considered whether to run for minority leader or step down from the leadership, and probably leave Congress, after a devastating rout Tuesday that cost Democrats their majority. Pelosi, 70, won re-election to the seat she has held in San Francisco since 1987 with 80 percent of the vote despite having mounted no campaign against a spirited and well-financed challenge at home by libertarian Republican John Dennis. Instead, she spent her colossal energy helping Democrats across the country. Loyalty to Pelosi and admiration...

In 1976 the Peoples Temple changed a San Francisco political juggernaut which was secretly harboring designs of world communist revolution to a paranoid North Korean-style enclave in Jonestown in 1978. There, they negotiated with the Soviet Union, North Korea and others for a possible exodus. A Soviet delegation visited Jonestown, showering it with praise.

In 2007, the New York Post featured Smith’s story — he was a converted Clinton supporter that left his work as a hotel doorman to campaign for Obama. Obama read the story and asked Smith to introduce him at a campaign event and also tell his story. He did, began campaigning for Obama full-time, and even was present backstage during the Democratic National Convention...

    "I am not going on this mission for the Emperor or for the Empire...I am going because I was ordered to." These words were spoken by one of Japan's first kamikaze pilots, Lieutenant Yukio Seki, after being compelled to volunteer for a suicide mission. Though apprehensive, the pilot maintained the insight to comprehend that "Japan's future was pale if it was forced to kill one of its best pilots." So it is in Washington, D.C. as a "divine wind" blows through the nation's capital. Although in the majority, Democrats are experiencing decreased capacity to successfully wage political war. Disregarding plummeting...
  • Was Reagan a RINO?

    So I was thinking recently about the RINOs infesting the GOP and it hit me that -despite being one of the greatest presidents in the 20th century- there are certain elements during Reagan's terms that might make him a RINO. Make no mistake though, these are just that: ELEMENTS, the majority of his accomplishments were grand. Illegal Mexican ImmigrantsOne of Reagan's downfalls was not clamping down on illegal immigration. It's exemplified in the Immigration Reform and Control Act which gave Amnesty for illegals instead of trying to deport them. The act also followed on the leftist premise of a "pathway...

    A year ago, Barack Obama's true believers were euphoric. The huge and jubilant gathering in Chicago's Grant Park on Election Night 2008 gave way to almost 2 million people on the Mall for the president's inauguration. He took office as the most popular incoming president in a generation. A movement had become a mandate of nearly 70 million votes. People hoped the new president would bring change to Washington, the hallmark claim of his historic candidacy. Now, the mood through much of the nation seems restive, even sour. It is almost jarring to look at the photographs from Grant Park,...

    The Democrats’ disastrous defeat in Massachusetts will allow the President’s opponents to claim credit for the recovery Why can the Left never win? Around the world, the election of Barack Obama inspired the hope of a new era of progressive politics, coming as it did after the spectacular failures of extreme conservatism under George W. Bush. But on Tuesday night, only one year after his inauguration, these hopes were suddenly destroyed. The crushing defeat of the Democratic candidate to succeed the late Edward Kennedy as senator for Massachusetts, does not only wreck Mr Obama’s hopes of signing a health reform...

    The rhetoric sometimes found here at Artorius can’t help but paint us as Right Wing crazies. Given some of the staffers working here, we agree at least with the crazy part. We are also accused of bias in our writing, and will admit that yes, we tow a conservative line. But because we post along opposition lines doesn’t mean we are wrong, or biased. It does however, permit a spirited defense of what we believe and how we think government should be run. Given that we really want people to read what we write, we at least try and get...
  • America continues to drink the Kool Aid (mmmmm mmmmm)

    America continues to drink the poison Kool Aid from this administration regarding health care, contrived environmental disasters and financial waste. This must be the season of poison drinks because on Nov 18th, 1978 909 men, women and children committed suicide under the care of pervert, community activist and political manipulator Jim Jones. We all may vaguely remember him as just a wacko cult leader but he was way more! Just how did he gain that much influence over so many people? It was not about sex or religion. It was about POWER Jim Jones had one big goal to create...

    The term “drink the Kool-Aid” is used to describe blind acceptance of something, whether it be a high stress work environment, an order from a superior, or membership in a particular group. This term is commonly used in American politics and corporate culture, typically by outside commentators, who might say that someone is “drinking the Kool-Aid.” People will also tell each other not to drink the Kool-Aid, in the hopes of encouraging people to open their eyes to a situation before it is too late. There are two different explanations for the origin of this phrase. Some people argue that...
