    Friends, like family, can really push your anger buttons. However, no matter how mad you’ve been at a friend for eating that leftover spaghetti you had stashed in the fridge, you probably didn’t beat them to a pulp. That’s what happened, sadly, to Atlanta resident Myriah Pointer after she allegedly sat on a hamburger. Heck, it was barely a hamburger. It was a Whopper Jr. Junior.

    Photo montage of Rahm at Wicker Park incident: Kenzo Shibata.- By Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle as posted on the Mental Health Movement’s Facebook page.Mental Health Movement members Debbie Delgado and Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle just confronted Rahm face-to-face about his mental health clinic closures. Rahm was about to address a small room of developers and residents at the Wicker Park field-house. 3 years after he closed half of Chicago’s public mental health clinics, he may have thought the issue had gone away. But then Debbie, sitting in the front row, a few feet from the mayor, stood up to tell her story. She told...

    Can you imagine a world where your home, your vehicles, your appliances and every single electronic device that you own is constantly connected to the Internet? This is not some grand vision that is being planned for some day in the future. This is something that is being systematically implemented right now. In 2015, we already have “smart homes”, vehicles that talk to one another, refrigerators that are connected to the Internet, and televisions that spy on us. Our world is becoming increasingly interconnected, and that opens up some wonderful possibilities. But there is also a downside. What if we...

    When we look back from 2025, it will be painfully obvious that central bank policies exacerbated the systemic crises that brought down the global financialization machine. What with all the praise being heaped on central banks for "saving" the world from economic doomsday in 2008, it's only natural to ask which structural problems their unprecedented policies solved in the past 6 years. After all, "saving" the world from financial collapse was relatively quick work; so what problems beyond imminent implosion did the central banks policies solve in the past 6 years? Answer: none. zip, zero, nada. The truth is central bank policies...

But hear it the radio host did, she says. And what she heard should make your blood run cold—and perhaps your rage hot. Obama’s amnesty plan is to use illegal aliens as “seedlings,” said the federal officials. They will “navigate, not assimilate,” as they “take over the host,” create a “country within a...

Moments ago, the latest Challenger data is out, and we really hope the BLS finally reads it because things in the energy sector are getting worse by the day, if only for its well-paid workers.

    If you had the choice between a life of great wealth and fame as opposed to the daily inquisition and criticism that comes with the presidency, which would you choose? The revelations, reported initially in the most left-wing newspaper in the nation, The New York Times, that Hillary Clinton used her own private emails to conduct public business, suggests that there are forces within the Democratic Party that do not want her to be its candidate for President in 2016. It’s not like Hillary did not know she was supposed to use the State Department’s email system for reasons of...

    Governor Rick Snyder has signed the concealed carry reform bills into law. Governor Snyder, who vetoed virtually the same bills only six weeks ago, signed them just hours ago.  Senate Bills 34 and 35 are now Public acts 3 and 4 of 2015.    The bills had passed with strong, veto proof majorities in both the House and Senate. County gun boards are eliminated by the bills, with a number of other reasonable reforms.   The gun boards were put in place in 1927.   In 1925, a black man, Dr. Ossian Sweet, had used a handgun to defend his family...

On Monday night, the little girl got her wish. Jalene’s mom Jennifer Arriagas told Eyewitness News that the pop singer chatted with the family for 20 minutes during a surprise call via Facetime.

    Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minster of Israel, delivered a powerful speech to Congress on Tuesday morning that made one thing abundantly clear, the leader of the free world does not reside in the White House. Netanyahu’s speech stood in stark contrast to the irrational rhetoric the Obama administration continues to preach on a daily basis. Such rhetoric on behalf of the adminstration insists on giving Iran the “benefit of the doubt” in regards to negotiations over a long-term nuclear deal while minimizing the actual threat such a “deal” would have on the Middle East. Netanyahu articulated the threat posed by...

    In spite of the overwhelming success of American Sniper, it received only one Oscar out of the six categories for which it was nominated. It was a consolation prize most likely—one that allowed the Academy to maintain their façade of integrity, while not causing Hollywood liberals' heads to explode. But this isn’t about the public sensation the film has become. It’s about another phenomenon: the predictable reactions that came from the left. There’s no need to detail or recap the antagonism. But now that the furor of angry and confused criticism is beginning to subside to non-toxic levels, I think...

    The House on Tuesday admitted defeat after a month-long effort to defund President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration, and passed a Department of Homeland Security funding bill that leaves Obama’s plan intact. The vote came after dozens of House Republicans fought to the bitter end to reject the “clean” DHS bill, in an effort to oppose what they see as an unconstitutional action from Obama. The House passed the bill 257-167, and sending it to the White House for Obama’s signature into law. In the end, 167 Republicans voted against the Senate’s version of the bill. But because the...

There are occasional cries of outrage when someone has to shoot a dog in order to save another animal.  They usually come from people who have no conception of reality outside their apartment or suburban home.  These people seem...

Well – at least I think that Chelsea is just Bradley in a stupid-looking wig; others apparently hold some different views. The article’s title pretty well summarized the rest of the pathetic story. A more apt title would have been: US Army...

    We didn’t really notice the political ineptness of George H.W. Bush. He ran with the great Ronald Reagan who could have picked a name from the phone book as his running mate and won both times. Bush the elder brought little to the ticket as he knew little about politics. When he ran on his own and picked Dan Quayle to run with he proved that point. George W. Bush was different. He had been Governor of Texas and knew things about politics his father never learned. He presented himself to us as a solid Texas style conservative at first...

       A St. Louis Judge has ruled that Missouri's tough new protection of the right to keep and bear arms is not just a paper tiger.  In the first ruling of its kind, the court ruled that a person cannot be prohibited from the right to keep and bear arms under Missouri statutes, for a non-violent felony.  From stltoday.com: St. Louis Circuit Judge Robert Dierker ruled that the Missouri law prohibiting felons from possessing guns is unconstitutional as applied in the case of Raymond Robinson, in part because it fails to differentiate between violent and non-violent felons.The amendment declares...

    Both houses of the Michigan legislature have passed their signature gun reform legislation.  The bills will be sent to Governor Snyder again.  In January, the Governor vetoed nearly identical bills over minor parts that had been trumpeted in the media as significant.   The legislature took out the minor parts of the bill that the media had objected to, and quickly passed the nearly identical legislation by large, vet-proof margins.  The bills make a large number of small changes to the administration of the concealed carry law, effectively making the law uniform state wide, and doing away with the 1920s...

    Norway recently made the controversial decision to deport a large amount of Muslims with ties to radical groups. Despite all the liberals in Norway deeming this “racist”, the logical party went ahead with it and the result almost shut down every opposing voice in the government instantly. This is one of the best stories we have eve seen come from such a liberal area of the world. Violent Crime Dropped By 30%

    A bill  pushed by Everytown for Gun Sense, a Mike Bloomberg funded operation, has floundered against intense grassroots opposition in Vermont. Vermont has some of the least infringements on second amendment rights in the country.  Vermont always had constitutional carry, with no permit required, for its entire history.  Vermont has always had one of the lowest crime rates in the country.   From burlingtonfreepress.com, a Gannet company: Supporters of the bill faced strong headwinds, including the opposition of Gov. Peter Shumlin and pushback from Vermont's hunters and police chiefs. The most controversial provision would have required almost all private gun...

    If the United States is to remain a sovereign nation, she must have a strong military capable of defending both her shores and her citizens against attack. This means that in addition to protecting the homeland, American troops must also protect our interests abroad, including our allies. When all is said and done, the United States must have armed forces capable of fighting and winning wars on two regional fronts. This week The Heritage Foundation released its 2015 Index of U.S. Military Strength. In the report, Foundation’s Analysts wrote “The U.S. does not have the right force to meet a...

    As noted here, "Immaculate Heart of Mary School of Still River, MA has withdrawn its marching band and float of Saint Patrick from this year’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade after learning that a small homosexual activist group will be allowed to march while publicly identifying its homosexuality. The school is compelled by the teachings of the Catholic Church to pull out. According to the Principal, Brother Thomas Dalton, 'Catholics are forbidden to sponsor or even participate in an event which openly promotes unnatural and immoral behavior. The Church will never accept nor condone same sex marriage and the homosexual life...
