Derek Hunter - Sun Apr 28

To call the Tsarnaev family a “piece of work” is an insult to work. ... more

Since the Boston terrorist attack on 4/15/13 we’ve been learning a whole lot about the two Muslim morons who blew up little children and severely injured hundreds of innocent onlookers and merry marathon runners. ... more

So we’ve now learned that the Boston Marathon terrorists were welfare bums. Why am I not surprised? I’m tempted to joke about al Qaeda including welfare applications in their training manuals, but I’m worried that might give them new ideas. ... more

When I think of the disability program, I think of the bum who is collecting a check so he can be an “adult baby” ... more

Lately, it seems Republicans keep trying to brainstorm about how to attract new voters in order to win in 2014 and 2016. ... more

Larry Elder - Thu Apr 4

My latest book, "Dear Father, Dear Son," focuses on the importance of fathers -- and the increasing number of children who grow up in homes without one. Fox's Juan Williams understands this -- sort of. He gets the "what," but not the "why." ... more

Jonah Goldberg - Thu Mar 7

One thing nearly everybody agrees upon is that the "sequester" is a silly sideshow to the real challenge facing America: unsustainable spending on entitlements. Ironies abound. ... more

Sit down. I’m truly sorry about this, but we really need to take another trip into the dark recesses of the liberal mind. A dangerous journey to a world where it is greedy to want to keep your own money, but not to covet the money or property of others; a world where earning 17% of the income, but paying 38% of the income taxes means you’re not paying your fair share; a world where any expression of disagreement with any utterance, no matter how ignorant, from the mouth of someone-not-white makes you a racist. ... more

Larry Elder - Thu Jan 10

The New York Post headline read: "Could You Spend $500 on Food at This Bodega? A Welfare Recipient Claimed To!" A few days later, another headline: "Welfare Recipients Take Out Cash at Strip Clubs, Liquor Stores and X-Rated Shops." "They're on the dole -- and watching the pole," wrote the Post. "Welfare recipients took out cash at bars, liquor stores, X-rated video shops, hookah parlors and even strip clubs -- where they presumably spent their taxpayer money on lap dances rather than diapers." ... more

Linda Chavez - Fri Dec 7

Throughout the presidential campaign, Republican candidates pointed to the number of food stamp recipients -- increasing from 33 million people in 2009 to 43 million in 2012 -- as a sign that poverty had skyrocketed under President Obama. But a new study suggests that the reason there has been such an increase in food stamp recipients during the last four years is even more pernicious. ... more

Jacob Sullum - Wed Dec 5

Since Republicans are pushing entitlement reform and Democrats like taking money from rich people, you might think they could agree on means-testing Medicare and Social Security as part of a deficit reduction deal. ... more
