How much would you borrow to buy something that you would never use and might kill you and everyone around you? If we’re talking about Uncle Sam’s outdated and useless nuclear arsenal, the price tag is $1.1 trillion. A better—and cheaper—idea might be doing what Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan and a host of others wanted […]

“Politicize” is a jab meaning the other side is trying to capitalize on a news topic. “The Republicans have tried to politicize the border crisis,” says Nancy Pelosi. Reince Priebus says Democrats are trying to politicize Benghazi. Jay Carney says Republicans are trying to politicize Benghazi. Steny Hoyer says Republicans are trying to politicize the […]

Arrogance doesn’t sit well with most Americans for very long. Only when it’s accompanied with overwhelming success, like the Pittsburgh Steelers, do we say, “Well, they’ve earned it, haven’t they?” As soon as they start losing, the arrogance of players like quarterback Ben Roethlisberger becomes the fans’ first criticism. Quarterback Barak Obama’s Democratic Party spins […]

On Tuesday, Citizens United’s right to distribute our newest documentary Rocky Mountain Heist in the state of Colorado was affirmed.  The District Court for the District of Colorado had refused to treat our documentary as a standard media product. That decision had imposed on our First Amendment rights and would have required Citizens United to […]

According to the ideas4writers.com website, nylon stockings were sold publicly for the first time (on a trial basis) in a department store in Wilmington, Delaware on October 27, 1939. The original purchasers of those hose can […]

I’m starting to feel bad for President Obama, if you want to know the truth. His poll numbers are so low — an IBD/TIPP poll indicates that 53 percent of adults in the United States now characterize Obama’s presidency as a “failure” — no Democrat candidates want to be seen with him. Former CIA chief […]

Raging Moderate by Will Durst Hey everybody. The Midterms Are Coming! Or rather: the midterms are coming. To be most precise; themidtermsarecoming. Because the general response of the vast majority of Americans who aren’t stifling yawns is “yeah, whatever. Isn’t there a baseball game on?” The suspense is… non-existent. Passion is totally absent. Color the […]
