Bachmann’s Migraines: ‘Incapacitating’ Or ‘Bogus’?

Every migraine sufferer knows that the intense headaches can ruin your day, make working difficult or even send you to the emergency room for treatment. However, a recent article alleges that Representative Michele Bachmann’s (R-Minn.) migraines may be severe enough to prevent her from performing Presidential duties when stressed.

Mayoral Candidate Proposes Steep Bullet Tax

Baltimore boasts some of the worst crime statistics in the country. An investment news website, 24/7 Wall St, ranked Baltimore as No. 8 on its 2011 list of the 10 most dangerous American cities, citing the fact that the Maryland city has the fourth-worst murder rate in the country. So it’s unsurprising that a Mayoral candidate would propose a tough plan to combat the city’s crime rates. However, Democrat Otis Rolley’s plan includes an unusual proposal: a tax on bullets.

Clinton Would Use 14th Amendment To Raise Debt Limit ‘Without Hesitation’

Sticking It To The Grandkids

I think by now everyone who is halfway honest and has an IQ above 32 realizes that the claim that the U.S. will default its debt if the debt ceiling isn’t raised by Aug. 2 is just another shameless Democratic canard.

Oh, Sheila!

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) showed her stupidity last week when she suggested that opposition to Obama’s economic “plan” is a result of racism.

Elizabeth Warren Passed Over, Cordray To Head Warren-Created CFPB

Elizabeth Warren, whom President Barack Obama credited with the “idea” for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and who has unofficially led the bureau since its creation, was not nominated to lead it officially. Instead, Obama chose former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray.

61-Year-Old Woman Arrested For Groping TSA Agent

Although stories involving groping allegations and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) have become commonplace, this one stands apart. On July 14, a 61-year-old woman from Longmont, Colo., was arrested at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport for sexually assaulting a female TSA agent.
