Joe Biden: “If it only saves one life!” A concealed carrier saved two that night.

by Skip January 12, 2013

Of all of the stupidest arguments that Progressives use over and over again is that of “if it only saves one life, it’s worth it!”.  The hypocrisy is that when confronted with that absurdity with other concrete example of danger (but do not fit the Narrative Du Jour), they grimace and “that’s stupid” without realizing […]

Minimum Wage Is Raacist!

by Mike January 12, 2013

Yes, indeedy, like most ideas promoted by Progressives/Liberals/Socialists, the helpful-sounding minimum wage is more about keeping the unqualified job seekers (read minorities) out of the labor market than it is about improving the living standards of the lowest strata of wage earners.

Notable Quote – Ann Althouse

by Skip January 12, 2013

On the idea that if the imagery is embraced and used by Progressives, why can’t we who are Pro-Life do the same?

Turkey Feathers and AR-15s

by Tom January 12, 2013

Freedom Nationally, Virtue Locally, Or SOCIALISM

by Mike January 12, 2013

Riffing off Skip’s quote from George Will about limited government not being in the business of imposing its opinions of virtue upon the citizenry, I was reminded of an author I met at CPAC two years ago, whose thesis is simply stated in the title of this post (and his book).

Notable Quote – George Will

by Skip January 12, 2013
