In response to the notion that there is a “rape culture” on campus, the California state legislature is on the verge of passing a bill that drastically redefines our notion of what constitutes rape. It moves the ill-advised into the category of a serious criminal act.
?President Obama has taken to having sit down lunches with people who write him letters. I wonder if I could get a free burger from POTUS if I wrote him a heartfelt letter about my “too damn high” grocery bills. A free burger certainly would not come amiss in times such as these.
Should people with strong religious convictions prepare to violate their beliefs or steer clear of corporate activity in the United States?
While being interviewed by Parade magazine, President and Mrs. Obama said that they would like for their daughters to have the experience of working at minimum wage jobs. Hear! Hear!
Unfortunately, this highly affluent woman, who was pulling down in excess of $300,000 for a job in hospital administration before moving into the White House, yet apparently couldn’t devise simple, nutritious menus for her own children without an intervention from the family pediatrician (“Have you considered arugula, Mrs. Obama?”) is now trying to tell an entire nation what to feed the children.
While admittedly not as buff as the gregarious Gitmo Five seen in footage of their arrival in Qatar, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl looked pretty damned good, if a bit misty-eyed, possibly from sensitivity to the light, when he was handed over to U.S. Special Forces.
They know how to play the feminism fiddle.
So much for Mrs. Clinton’s empowering women and girls globally.
?Everything’s coming up Hillary. Her memoir, Hard Choices, for which she reportedly was paid a princely advance in neighborhood of $14 million, is due out early this summer.
The White House probably didn’t enjoy Equal Pay Day—the bogus feminist holiday cynically used to rally women voters—half as much as usual this year. Think of Equal Pay Day 2014 as a bad hair day for the phony 77 cents gender wage gap.
While Michelle Obama was communing with the Terracotta Army from the Tang Dynasty on her most recent taxpayer-funded spring break in China, Reid Cherlin, a former White House press aide, was blowing the whistle in the New Republic on what an overbearing control freak Mrs. Obama is.
Although the Rutgers University faculty and students are rising as one to try to block her from delivering the commencement address this spring, Condoleezza Rice is able to ignore such minor ignominies and concentrate instead on something that really, really matters: banning the perfectly good English word bossy.
Governor Bobby Jindal has committed a shocking faux pas.
Why do Republicans insist upon giving the Democrats more ammo for their phony “war on women” rhetoric?
A recent report on Market Watch—hardly a right-wing hangout—should be required reading for every Democrat who believes that extending “temporary” unemployment benefits is always the humane thing to do.
If you liked your holidays, one reason may have been that President Obama was on the golf course and not behind the teleprompter. Like Pat Sajak—who famously tweeted that he never thought he’d find somebody else’s vacation so relaxing—I have loved every minute of President Obama’s Hawaiian idyll.
Drop Hawaii, the President ought to stay home, wear pajamas, drink hot chocolate, and praise American’s generosity.
And I’ll admit it: it’s a small thrill to be attacked in the Nation, that stalwart of lefty orthodoxy. As for the class warrior bit, however, could this be projection?
Speak up—I must need a hearing aid. Oops! I’m going to have to content myself with an elective abortion or free birth control pills instead. Bummer.
Geraldo Rivera’s infamous selfie—that’s a picture that one takes of themselves for those not up on the current lingo—revealed the nearly-nude 70-year-old celebrity looking lovingly into a bathroom mirror and should have been the ultimate herald that the end times are fast-approaching.
