Outside the Asylum
The fact that the FCC has retreated from its plan to place monitors in newsrooms across the Nation probably rates a minor celebration. The fact that it even considered trying to place monitors in newsrooms across the country definitely rates major concern.
If the United States were to enact a new minimum wage of $10.10 per hour, then the people would subsequently enjoy a higher standard of living. If you don’t believe me, then take it from President Barack Obama.
I swear “The Gong Show” offered better talent. At the very least, it wasn’t anywhere near as deliberately insulting to the audience. And Chuck Barris’ claims of service in the CIA were far more believable than nearly anything President Barack Obama and/or his Democrat accomplices might offer.
So President Barack Obama has delayed the implementation of his pride and joy. Why did Dear Leader decide to park another segment of his namesake in the bureaucratic garage? According to the man himself, he did it because he can.

Witness the sad decline of ABC News’ aging newsmagazine 20/20. While it never achieved the notability of 60 Minutes, it likewise never dove headfirst into the deep end of the crazed activism of its neighbors like Dateline NBC. But then last week, 20/20 served up “Young Guns.”

It’s not every day that the President of the United States gets to wish a happy birthday to an entire industry dedicated to keeping birthdays from happening.
If not for the fact that rising leftist star and Texas State Senator Wendy Davis has become the poster girl for the abortion industry, she’d be little more than a local curiosity. But Davis loves abortion, so we’re supposed to overlook the fact that her resume might as well be printed on rainbow paper and include a job as a unicorn wrangler.
