  • Why do so many people with expensive college degrees settle for low-paying jobs?

    You can’t be serious, Dude. There was a time in the US when you could get a great job if you earned a bachelor’s degree in “anything.” The catch is that JFK was president at the time. Most parents (and their students) are oblivious to how college really works today. In some ways it is hard to blame them. Colleges and universities have a powerful public relations team, pushing the message 24/7 that "college is for all." The team is made up of educators, guidance counselors, financial aid officers, politicians, pop culture, special interest groups--like the College Board, and college...

    In yet another inciting tweet from left-wing celebrities, far-left actor Alec Baldwin chose civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday to describe a “dream” he had which included a noose hanging outside of a courthouse during President Donald Trump’s “sedition” trial. Inciting his radical Twitter following, the progressive activist and Saturday Night Live and Boss Baby star took to Twitter on Friday to share his vision which included the president undergoing trial for sedition while a noose — made of recycled protective masks — hangs from a makeshift scaffold.

  • Man stole tow truck, then called 911 to complain because victim pulled a gun on him, prosecutors say (chicago)

    A Grand Crossing man stole a towing company’s truck and then called 911 himself because he was upset that the truck’s driver dared to pull a gun on him, prosecutors said. Elliott Scott, 22, is charged with aggravated possession of a stolen motor vehicle, misdemeanor theft, and driving on a suspended or revoked license. “Mr. Scott called 911?” a befuddled Judge Charles Beach asked prosecutors after hearing their allegations. “Yeah,” Scott interjected. “Right.” Scott’s defense attorney quickly advised him, “it’s not best to talk about the charges” in court.

  • Who owns America's history? Well, for now the progressives do.

    01/16/2021 7:41:43 AM PST · by ProgressingAmerica · 15 replies
    There's a rather uninteresting article over at National Geographic that puffs up rioters and sculptors. The real issue though is a little bit deeper than that. American history is in fact naturally conservative. It's anti-statist, pro-individual, and and based on Judeo-Christian principles. Why so few conservatives play in this arena is beyond me given the natural advantages, but it is what it is. The fact is, conservatives gave history to the progresives. Ever since Charles Beard started propagandizing the Founders with his 1913 "Economic Interpretation" (reinterpretation) of the Founders, the Progressives have set out on a century's-long journey to first...

    With arrest after arrest of assorted leftists emerging, it looks as though impeachment-happy Nancy Pelosi, has a lot of egg on her Botoxed face. When the Capitol riots happened on Jan. 6, the blame of President Trump was all over. Supposedly, he was the instigator. Supposedly, he'd egged the rioters on. The tape of his urging his supporters to stay strong and fight was Exhibit A in the press, and with no skepticism whatsoever, House speaker Nancy Pelosi declared Trump guilty and rushed a crazily hasty second impeachment just days before Trump's exit. She declared that it was all about...

    Today, we are observing turbulence on the surface of news reports. Anyone who has spent much time fishing has likely observed turbulence on the surface of the water, without necessarily understanding what was causing it. Sometimes, it is due to a school of fish attempting to escape from a predator. Today, we are observing turbulence on the surface of news reports. SNIP What is going on? For one, the intrusions and accompanying violence were not the work of rank-and-file Trump loyalists. Some of the intruders may have been what are called right-wing extremists, but clearly, at least some were leftists....

    Now what, Republicans? Our worthless opinions and romanticized delusions about democracy as a Grecian pursuit of Jeffersonian erudition won't save us. It is Republicans who romanticize democracy, not Democrats. Democrats romanticize outnumbering, overwhelming, and overtaking their opposition; their modus operandi isn't very different from that of Islamic supremacists or the Chinese. To affirm just how pathetic the now extinct national GOP is, Republicans are placing their hopes and dreams with...Joe Manchin, senator from West Virginia. We debunk ourselves, oblivious to our own self-irony. The Problem Republicans have to work much more to drive voter turnout than do Democrats. This is...

    So we are to imagine that those who objected to Biden's having stolen the election are responsible for the violence at the Capitol? And that, going forward, any public official who questions Biden's win should be removed from office, and that any corporate leader who objects should be fired? All this when the truth is that Trump in all likelihood won the election. It is the perfect example of Orwellian speech. In his classic essay "Politics and the English Language," Orwell spoke of the condition where "words and meaning have almost parted company." If that "almost" is a measure of...

    I have this foreboding feeling that there will be violence in DC on inauguration day from leftist plants passing themselves off as Trump supporters. I’m pretty sure that is what happened on January 6. This will be echoed by the lapdog media and this is where gun confiscation will start. Please tell me how I’m wrong

    In the summer of 2014, I gave birth to a baby boy. He was born with a perfect Apgar score, after a very easy delivery. But my labor had not been smooth—in fact, throughout the day and a half of contractions, I believed there was something decidedly wrong. I also felt that way as I held him for the first time, and he writhed violently under my hands. In a video taken about 10 minutes after he was born, he can be seen lifting his head up off my chest. “Ooooh, look at how advanced he is!” someone can be...

    Director Chrissy Wray has put all of the FBI agents on overtime before the inauguration of Slow Joe Biden. FBI agents will be venturing into bars, strip clubs, BLM, ANTIFA and drug dens to recruit rioters for the inauguration at the nations capitol and state capitols. The FBI will provide the going FBI CI rates, MaGA hats, food and lodging, transportation, bail money and "Friend of Judge Sullivan" cards to recruits. Potential recruits should be prepared to be able to assemble and use gasoline based flammables, beat old people with sticks, break windows, and use vile language when referring to...
  • The best Trump video you've seen in a VERY long time

    This is one of the best videos I've ever seen. About 5 minutes long but it sums up Trump, who he is and what he's done for us. I do not believe he's done. At all. Take the time to watch this; it will warm your cockles!
