Mayhem in LA! Cars Must Be Banned!

Written by Eric Peters on Thursday, 08 August 2013. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

If injury/death is the criteria for banning a given tool, then cars should be at the very top of the list – and many rungs higher than firearms.

Mayhem in LA! Cars Must Be Banned!

There was mass carnage yesterday[August 3, 2013] on the Venice Beach boardwalk near LA when a man used his high-powered automobile to run over 12 people – killing one of them and sending the remainder to the hospital.

The Gosnell trial showed the nation that in America today, we have abortion factories where live children are being killed.

President Christie? It Could Happen

Written by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, 07 August 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

How can Republicans win the White House in 2016? They could choose Chris Christie as their candidate.

President Christie? It Could Happen

I have to confess I have enjoyed the brief head-banging between Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey. I am New Jersey born-and-bred, having lived here with time out for college and the U.S. Army. I have traveled to most of the other states, but I was always happy to come home. I thought Sen. Paul looked like he was—no pun intended—in the wrong weight division when he got in the ring with Christie.

Obamacare Will Fall on Own Sword

on Wednesday, 07 August 2013. Posted in Opinion, Letter From Congress

Rep. Cole: "I’ve always taken every opportunity to speak out against Obamacare and find ways to limit its harmful impact. However, forcing a government shutdown will negatively affect millions of hardworking Americans...."

Obamacare Will Fall on Own Sword

By Congressman Tom Cole

House Republicans have jumped on every opportunity to fully repeal and change or defund the president’s healthcare law. His signature piece of legislation, President Obama’s so-called affordable plan for healthcare is already showing signs of inevitable failure, and it continues to grow less popular with each passing day. Even the Obama Administration has admitted that the law is unworkable by choosing to delay key portions of it.

Test Drive: 2014 GMC Terrain

Written by Eric Peters on Wednesday, 07 August 2013. Posted in Automotive, Business

So, what makes a model like the 2014 GMC Terrain different from its lower-status (and lower-priced) corporate cousin, the 2014 Chevy Equinox? Are these differences sufficient to justify having “twins” in the GM portfolio?

Test Drive: 2014 GMC Terrain

The GMC division of General Motors is an interesting animal in that it’s one of the small handful of “middle” brands still left on its feet. You remember middle brands: A notch above the mass-market (e.g., a Chevy) but not quite as prestigious as a top-of-the-line brand (e.g., a Cadillac).

Hot Lies Disputed by Cold Facts

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 06 August 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Suffice to say, global warming is the greatest hoax of the modern era and is seriously undermined by the fact that the Earth has been in one of its natural cooling cycles for the last seventeen years at this point.

Hot Lies Disputed by Cold Facts

I have always found a stark contrast in the way the forecasts of meteorologists on television and radio are limited in accuracy to about a week and beyond that become more speculative while the claims about global warming are always stated in decades. For example, the polar ice caps were supposed to have all melted by now.

At the end of August, Firestation should be ready to begin observations, watching for lightning on Earth, which regularly appears some 50 times a second around the globe.

NASA’s Firestation on way to the International Space Station

An experiment to study the effects of lightning flashes on Earth's atmosphere hitched a ride to the International Space Station on Aug. 3, 2013. The Firestation experiment launched aboard a Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s transfer vehicle called Kounotori-4.

Rep. Sensenbrenner: "Some states have misconstrued their authority to levy business activity taxes, which has resulted in uncertainty for small businesses and state governments alike."

Sensenbrenner Introduces Bill to Protect Small Businesses

Neither Royalty nor Government

Written by Brian White on Monday, 05 August 2013. Posted in Opinion, Guest Column

It's time to see that reliance on Government has brought us as far as it is going to. Now, we need to return to the original ideas that America was founded on.

Neither Royalty nor Government

As a CT resident I sometimes read the Hartford Courant Op-Ed when eating breakfast out. On Saturday July 27th I read a local pathologist's well lettered Op-Ed piece scorning the American interest in the new born son of Price William and Princess Kate. I share his disdain for all things Royalty. There is no genetic quality in the descendants of Monarchs that make them particularly special. They've had the privilege of inheriting wealth and status and that does not make them any more special than any other family of inherited wealth. But to each his own; if people want to faun over the Windsors then it's their choice and no skin off my nose. However, then the article's author leaps to share his regret that 18 million children in America go hungry each night. I don't know where he gets his statistics and it is not that I'm challenging their accuracy but it reminded me that some people continue to focus on symptoms and fail to understand problems.

A Military in Decline

Written by Alan Caruba on Monday, 05 August 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

It does not take an expert in military affairs to know that the demand to include more women in the ranks will degrade unit cohesion throughout of our fighting forces.

A Military in Decline

Wars are often unpredictable. The outcome of such conflicts is also unpredictable, but defeat in future conflicts is now being “baked into the cake” and I suspect most Americans are totally unaware of how serious this threat is. You can be sure potential and actual enemies are calculating the odds.

John Stossel and the New Rome on the Potomac

Written by Ilana Mercer on Monday, 05 August 2013. Posted in Opinion, Ilana Mercer

John Stossel thinks the Obama regime has not quite morphed the U.S. into the Roman Empire. He's wrong. In fact, the new Rome on the Potomac has exceeded the decadence of classical Rome by an order of magnitude.

The Story

Written by Jack Kerwick on Friday, 02 August 2013. Posted in Opinion, Kerwick, Jack

There are those who would pit classes or types of people against each other for political and monetary gain. Nothing could be more totalitarian, because at base, such a view denies the relevance and importance of the individual.

The Story

The Racism-Industrial-Complex is as gargantuan an industry as any that has ever existed. And it is more dangerous to life, limb, and liberty than most.
