Last month a temporary glitch in Louisiana’s EBT system allowed some card recipients to shop till they dropped at a number of local Walmarts. That’s right, for several hours the limit on the cards disappeared, letting users buy—steal—anything and as much as they wanted.
There’s been no end to the criticism Common Core has received—and this lesson for an English class is a good example of why:
Remember when a Swedish reporter asked the president in September to describe the “dilemma to being a Nobel Peace Prize winner and getting ready to attack Syria”? If the following is true, it doesn’t really seem like there’s much of a moral dilemma he’s struggling with at all.
More than a year has gone by since four Americans were killed in 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, and despite all the Capitol Hill hearings, Sen. Lindsey Graham isn’t satisfied with the information lawmakers have received.
The influential D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday sided with an Ohio business that challenged Obamacare’s birth control mandate.
When New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the SAFE Act in January—what he referred to as “common sense” gun-control legislation—the law not only turned many law-abiding citizens into criminals, it also drove businesses and jobs out of the state.
Whenever the federal government steps in, inefficiency, dysfunction and waste seem to be quick to follow—and the National Park Service is no different.
Though Secretary of State John Kerry signed the UN Arms Trade Treaty in September, there are positive signs that the treaty will be dead on arrival in the Senate.
For comedians, Obamacare’s disastrous rollout has meant there’s been no shortage of material. Jon Stewart, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert have all ripped Obamacare in the last few weeks, but Jay Leno knocked it out of the park on Tuesday with this one:
After 67 people were killed in last month’s terrorist attack at the Westgate mall in Kenya, it looks like the international community could be engaging in a gun control debate of its own.
With so much to say about the new healthcare law before the exchanges opened, Sebelius has been conspicuously silent since October 1.
While Boehner’s speakership is likely safe, Charles Krauthammer thinks he’s lost all credibility after failing to stop ObamaCare, which of course, resulted in the first government shutdown in nearly two decades.
In Colorado, two state senators were ousted from office in a September recall election over gun control, and another effort to take out state Sen. Evie Hudak is well underway. If successful, Colorado Dems would lose their edge in the state Senate—a distinct possibility that’s not lost on Gov. Hickenlooper.
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius claims Obamacare’s online exchanges are “simple” and “user friendly,” but anyone who’s been paying the slightest attention since Oct. 1 knows the new health care law’s roll out has been a stunning failure. For this reason, Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan, thinks Sebelius ought to ?resign:
Dr. Ben Carson didn’t hold back when discussing Obamacare Friday at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, DC.
How can the billion-dollar abortion industry do even more with less? In California at least, pro-choice advocates push for Gov. Jerry Brown to sign a bill that allows non-physicians to perform abortions—and that’s exactly what he did on Wednesday.
Congress’ approval rating is down to 11 percent, according to a Gallup poll released Monday, which is hardly surprising given the shutdown. But Public Policy Polling has found a more interesting way to measure its popularity.
With two victories now under their belt, gun rights activists in Colorado are refocusing their efforts to recall state Sen. Evie Hudak—despite a failed attempt less than six months ago.
And this would be why no one (in the U.S., at least) takes the United Nations seriously.
If California Gov. Jerry Brown signs a sweeping new gun control bill that would ban the future sales of semi-automatic rifles that accept detachable magazines, the NRA plans to sue, according to Fox News.
