In a world where athletes and celebrities are constantly spewing left-wing drivel, it’s encouraging as well as refreshing when a lone wolf is committed to standing up for individualism and scrapping the group-think mentality that dominates pop culture.
The 2011 Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins were invited to the White House by the Dear Leader but made the team appearance Monday without their future Hall of Fame goalie Tim Thomas.
Thomas, the 2011 Conn Smythe Trophy winner, released the following statement regarding his decision: Continue Reading
Regardless of whether you think Newt Gingrich should be the Republican nominee for president, conservatives should agree on one thing. Newt is not doing himself any favors with these new-found attacks on Mitt Romney and the former governor’s tenure at consulting firm Bain Capital. There has been much banter amongst the conservative media outlets about Gingrich using the “language of the left” and sounding more like a Democrat than a “Reagan Convervative” – as he claims he has always been.

Whether you wish to believe he is managing our decline intentionally or that he is genuinely doubling down on Keynesian economics in the hopes of creating growth is irrelevant.

To be fair, the numbers were up under Bush, but unlike our Dear Leader, Bush wasn’t promoting new enrollees via government policy. Obama has encouraged the increase. Congratulations, Mr. President. To paraphrase your now infamous 2008 campaign quote…”When you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” I guess that would depend on who you talk to. The great Margaret Thatcher said it best and I would offer this as a rebuttal: “The problem with socialism is that at some point you run out of other people’s money.” Continue Reading
