    One of the most profoundly unfair provisions of Obamacare is that members of Congress and their staffers were unilaterally and illegally granted a special exemption from the law they themselves passed. Unlike many Americans, many of whom have been forcibly kicked off their current health care plans, the governing class and their staffers as of now will keep their insurance providers and receive an enormous taxpayer subsidy (depending on which plan they choose) to off-set rising health care costs. Sound fair? I didnít think so. As it happened, many congressional staffers threatened to resign if they were forced to enroll...

Most American households making between $500,000 and $1 million paid a 20.6 percent rate in 2012, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. In spite of the lower tax rate, the Obamas still managed to overpay taxes last year to the tune of $16,815, according to their tax returns, which were released by the White House on Friday.

    Mark Kelly's campaign against "assault weapons" such as the AR-15 rifle has sparked a local backlash. On March 13, a Tucson, Arizona radio host published a photograph of former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords holding an AR-15 rifle at a gun range. Giffords has since confirmed that the photograph is authentic.

    One of New York City Mayor Michael Bloombergís top gun-control lobbyists in Colorado appears to enjoy firing the very guns he is working to restrict. Denver-based Headwaters Strategies lobbyist Adam Eichberg participated at a ďwatermelon shootĒ in September 2012 at the farm of Colorado state Sen. Greg Brophy (R.) where he fired a semi-automatic rifle with a high-capacity magazine. A picture obtained by the Washington Free Beacon shows Eichberg smiling broadly as he shoulders a DPMS .308 rifle with a 20-round magazine. ďI really hate watermelons,Ē Eichberg said via email when asked for comment.

    Dear Capt. Kelly, Houston, we have a problem: Your story makes no sense. Youíre against rifles like the semiautomatic AR-15, which look like weapons of war, when you know full well the military doesnít use them, but instead uses the select fire-capable M16. Yet you go to a dealer to buy a .45, a sidearm, which was actually, in your words, ďdesigned for the military.Ē Iím not following your logic here. You say as you were leaving the gun store, you noticed a used AR-15 and bought that, too. You then complain about your background check, and use that to...

    I believe that a child who pretends his pastry is a gun poses an imminent danger, but 5,000 criminal illegal aliens released from jail enhance public safety. I believe that New Yorkers must be protected from the risk of drinking 16 ounces of soda, but exposed to the risk of bringing Osama bin Laden's son-in-law for a civil trial blocks from Ground Zero. I believe that every American child deserves to be loved and cherished, except for certain 16-year-olds who deserve to be killed by drones. I believe that a Muslim woman who applauds 9/11 and admires Hitler deserves a...

    In what has become a recurring theme for the Spanish language network Univision, one of their employees took to social media recently to smear Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). According to the Miami Herald, a top assistant to a Univision news boss criticized Rubio being chosen as the Republican response to the State of the Union. The employee at the center of the controversy is one Angelica Artiles who took to Facebook to post the following vicious attack: "Oh, wow, the loser is going to speak after our President. Anything to get publicity. Ask him to do us a favor and...
  • Jamie Foxx: 'Black People Are The Most Talented People In The World'

    It seems Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx just can't avoid saying something really stupid at awards ceremonies. After calling Barack Obama "Our Lord and Savior" at last November's Soul Train Awards, Foxx, during his acceptance speech as Entertainer of the Year at last Friday's NAACP Image Awards, said, "Black people are the most talented people in the world" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

    Gun control isnít about banning guns, itís about banning people who arenít well-connected from having guns. If youíre a Wal-Mart shopper then youíre not supposed to have a gun.
