Acts 17:30


A new study shows that, if you ask 10 Roman Catholics in America about transubstantiation, 4.5 of them will look at you blankly and go “huh?” This despite the fact that this, the belief that the wine and the wafer one consumes during Communion ACTUALLY BECOME the blood and the body of Jesus Christ, is […]

Ohio Does Something Right


It might be so much campaign-season posturing, but Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland has done something that’s exactly what ought to be done. Strickland penned an executive order in August preventing executive cabinet agencies, boards and commissions from signing a contract to purchase services outsourced to other countries. Defending the decision against complaints from “free” traders, […]

Just the Facts


Everytime I start writing something lately I feel as though I am just saying something I said a year ago. There has been no progress. The GOOP is still extruding the same old crap. So I am leaving the heavy lifting on the GOOP’s Pledge to Get America to the Washington Post, which did an […]

Stephen Colbert is Good People


From Colbert’s Congressional testimony: Good morning. My name is Stephen Colbert: television personality, comedian and resident of New York.

The President’s response was not completely bad. He pointed out that he had expanded student loans and […]

A Good Rule of Thumb for Voters


I’d like to offer up a simple piece of advice for voters, especially for “undecided” voters, as we enter the run-up to November. This is an alarmingly simple rule to follow, and I think that if you’d apply it, you’d see it as a fantastic way to weed out a good number of candidates. Here […]

Good Idea, Republigoats. Run Against THAT.


From September 17, 2010 — Healthcare reform, officially called the Affordable Care Act, was signed into law by President Obama last March. But this September 23, it picks up steam. Six major provisions will be enacted to set reform on its way. Here’s a quick look at the provisions: Extending Coverage for Young Adults: […]

Why Does It Always Seem To Work Out This Way?


Christine O’Donnell’s gay sister.



…and yet you just hear this constant whining. Complaining. About a loss of our competetiveness, America in decline. We’ve never been more dominant. We’ve never had more natural advantages than we have today. We’ve sort of become a nation of whiners. This was Phil Gramm, in his capacity of financial adviser to then presidential candidate […]
