Dear NFL Players: I Can’t Take Your Cause Seriously Until You Do


Let me speak directly to the NFL players who keep protesting every week.  You seem to want to start a conversation and open a dialogue about some serious issues.  Sounds good to me.  Let’s chat. I think your protest could be a lot more effective if you just tweaked a few key things.  As a (former) NFL fan who dearly loves football, let me try to help you. Your message is getting lost in your...

Socialism by the Slice


A Boston pizza shop that strove to “solve the root problem of widening economic disparities through innovative alternatives” (whatever that means) is closing its doors after just two years of serving up economic justice and failure.  In so doing, Dudley Dough is providing us free of charge with a delicious example of how socialism can’t work, no matter how you try to spin it.  I’m not an...

You’re Too Fat


That is what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has to tell you, though not exactly in those words. New research by the CDC is showing that the adult obesity rate in the U.S. is now just shy of a whopping 40% and it’s over 18% in youth.  These rates are climbing at a shocking pace, up 30% in the past two decades. CNN interviewed Michael W. Long, assistant professor at the Milken...

The End of the Boy Scouts


We all knew this was coming.  The Boy Scouts of America stood for over a century on its strong foundation of Judeo-Christian values, growing boys into young men, and young men into leaders.  However, in recent years the BSA has allowed cracks to form in that foundation. From the lifting of the ban on openly gay boys from joining the organization, to the sanctioning of openly gay adult leaders, to...

Don’t Save Net Neutrality


Take care when cruising the information super-highway today.  The left has littered it with deception and misdirection intended to confuse you on the issue of so-called “net neutrality.” A large coalition of Internet giants is pushing hard today for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to preserve “net neutrality” rules implemented under the previous presidential administration.  These...

Leftists are Hopeless


My fiancée had never been to any kind of political protest before.  To satiate her morbid curiosity, I took her down to the anti-sharia protest in Roseville, California this afternoon.  After parking a few blocks away and walking over, we found ourselves on a street corner behind the anti-anti-sharia “counter-protest.”  From there we watched and observed for a while. The whole scene was rather...

CAIR Wants the Air Force to Stop Teaching Anti-Terrorism


Apparently teaching a class to the military on terrorism is now “Islamophobic.” Patrick Dunleavy is an instructor at the U.S. Air Force Special Operations School at Hurlburt Field, Florida.  He teaches a class on “The Dynamics of International Terrorism.”  Mr. Dunleavy’s specialty is on the subject of radicalization of Muslims in American prisons. He must be pretty effective because CAIR, the...
