Is Obamacare Self Destructing?

BonginoAfter reading, in complete and utter disbelief, a piece about the complaints of seemingly bright Harvard faculty members regarding the damaging effects of Obamacare on their personal healthcare choices and finances, I was reminded of a conversation I had with a former Secret Service colleague.


Liberals' Use of Black People

williamsBack in the day, when hunting was the major source of food, hunters often used stalking horses as a means of sneaking up on their quarry. They would walk on the opposite side of the horse until they were close enough to place a good shot on whatever they were hunting. A stalking horse not only concealed them but also, if their target was an armed man and they were discovered, would take the first shot. That's what blacks are to liberals and progressives in their efforts to transform America — stalking horses.

Who Got Served?

As a veteran of the US Marine Corps (1984-1995, “honorably discharged”), I've always found the obligatory “thank you for your service” remarks somewhat grating. It’s difficult to explain why, but a Google News search returning 19.1 million media results in the last 30 days on the dual terms “veterans” and “service” indicates a need for re-examination of the whole concept of “service” as it relates to military affiliations.

Are Facts Obsolete?

Bongino: A Year In Review for Big Government

BonginoLast year may have been that inflection point where it all turns around and, although nothing is permanent, I am confident that the tide of big government that has rolled upon our shores may be beginning to recede. A series of electoral and policy failures which have blackened the eyes of big government acolytes piled up in 2014, and the devastating results have made it impossible for the media to hide under the bed. Here are just a few of 2014's big government low-lights:

A Future Fraught with Tension

boomersThe impending retirement wave of Baby Boomers and its impact on American society is something that the Center for a Just Society has been discussing for several years. The issue of a rapidly aging society combined with a rapidly shrinking worker base may not be a sexy topic, but it's an extremely important one that will impact society for generations to come. Clive Crook at the Bloomberg Review recently considered this issue from a global perspective in a piece entitled, "Demography is Rewriting Our Economic Destiny." 

Is Law Optional?

sowellThe fiasco of "Rolling Stone" magazine's apology for an unsubstantiated claim of gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity house — and the instant rush to judgment of the university administration in shutting down all fraternities, when those charges were made — should warn us about the dangers of having serious legal issues dealt with by institutions with no qualifications for that role.

Your contribution is appreciated, if only a couple of bucks, the cost of countering the liberal media is arduous and costly.
