Despite the political bloviating about how bad sugar is (and despite evidence and common sense to the same effect), the Department of Agriculture is currently considering buying 400,000 tons of the sweet stuff. You see, not only does government want to tell you how much sugar to eat — it also wants to tell you how much it should cost and what kind of profits producers of the product should earn.
Not only did the White House shut down public tours in order to create an extremely public example of the sequestration pain President Barack Obama spent the past several weeks warning about, but it is now revealed that top officials of Federal agencies could be doing their part as well. With sequestration looming, U.S. Park […]
Always lead by example. If you were brought up to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, hopefully your parents set a good example by paying their taxes. Evidently, President Barack Obama’s White House staff didn’t get that kind of upbringing. Forty of his White House aides owe a combined $333,485 in back taxes to […]
Senator Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) passionate filibuster earlier this week has done far more than require the Federal government to specify whether or not it will kill Americans in the U.S. with drones.

Thursday U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder sent Paul another letter clarifying the Administration’s position on drone strikes on U.S. soil. Read the letter below: White […]
Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) took to the Senate floor Thursday to denounce Senator Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) effort to ensure balance of government and respect of Constitutional rights. Here’s what happens when you corner a RINO: And Graham brought this stupid, condescending chart: McCain also made clear that he doesn’t care about […]
Republicans, or rather, conservatives, it is time to wake up and stop being so damned lazy. After the disastrous results of the last Presidential election — during which you picked a RINO as your standard bearer because your Party elite told you to — Republican Average Joes throughout the Nation were left scratching their heads […]
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is reviving the good old-fashioned filibuster — a tactic not used in the Senate in more than two years — to protest U.S. use of unmanned aerial drones. “I will speak until I can no longer speak,” Paul said as he began his remarks. “I will speak as long as it […]
