You may recall the Oregon businessman who took offense to Obama’s “You didn’t build that” quote and put a large sign in his shop window stating, “Hey Obama, I built my business by myself, you lousy incompetent excuse for a President.”
Provocative, to be sure. But understandable, given this President’s [...]

To believe that freedom could be won so easily does a disservice to the immense worth of freedom, and also a d [...]

Will Ferrell will grovel on a billiards table, wearing a lounge suit made from the finest threads, as long as you agree to vote for Barack Obama.
Seriously, he’ll make you a meal of roast flamingo and seared perch. He’ll bungee jump from the Golden Gate Bridge wearing nothing but an ill-fitting trash bag. He’ll eat… [...]

The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign [...]

1) Human rights investigators from the U.N. have condemned the Syrian government and ISIS militants for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians by chemical weapons and conventional weapons.

Paul Krugman argues that housing costs, not taxes, are what is drawing people to Georgia and Texas and away from California and New York. He’s partly right, but he’s mostly wrong. What he fails to see is that the same impulse that attempts to control land uses in California, making housing expensive, also makes unduly […]
