A magician was working on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. The audience would be different each week, so the magician allowed himself to do the same tricks over and over again.
Last week, the International Business Times wrote that the Koch brothers – yes the evil Koch brothers – “Want a New Constitution – And They’re Closer than You Think.” With a headline like this, there is little doubt of IBT’s intent.
The article regards one of my favorite topics, Article V, Convention of States. For a while now, leftist “news sites,” have been trying to scare their readers into opposing such a “radical” departure from the norm of centralized governmental authority – and largess.
Of course, they don’t describe the Convention of States in such a way. IBT, as does every other progressive outlet, must lie about the purpose of Article V and never mention the reasoning behind the article by the founders.

Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh reminded us of something we may have forgotten. It hasn’t been in the news lately, and with all else that is happening, it’s easy for we who write about this stuff, not to follow-up.
Rush updated us on the infamous “Fight for $15” movement, and how it is the gift that just keeps on giving.
Actually, more accurately put would be the gift that just keeps on taking – as in jobs and businesses.
You may have heard from Rush, or many other internet sites, that McDonalds is currently replacing 2,500 jobs in the U.S. with self-service kiosks. And this is only the beginning. Next year they plan to roll out another 3,000. You might surmise that this is 5,000 jobs being replaced. It’s likely to be many more.
Remember that human workers are at the restaurant for usually 8 hour shifts. Robots don’t have shifts, so they don’t need to be replaced by another human for the next shift. They work 24 hours a day, every day. These kiosks can potentially replace most all shift cashiers. In other words, that 5,000 could easily double or triple.
And to add insult to injury, McDonalds has plans to roll out mobile ordering across 14,000 U.S. locations by the end of 2017. This is sure to be a huge hit – and cause many more layoffs.
McDonald’s has launched its long-awaited home delivery trial in the UK after teaming up with Uber’s takeaway service.
The fast food giant is offering its ‘McDelivery’ service through UberEats, with orders available from 22 locations across London and another 10 restaurants in Leeds and Nottingham.
It comes after similar tie-ups with Uber in the US, while McDonald’s already delivers in China and Singapore.
I used to think I was just a regular guy, but …
I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.
I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.
I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic.

“Rising sea levels are eating away at small Pacific Islands and will eventually turn their inhabitants into climate refugees.” So say the climate “experts.”
Allow me to channel my inner Andy Rooney. Did you ever notice that in order to be a “climate expert,” one must first believe in man-caused global warming. Just an observation.
New Scientist reports that “Over the past 60 years the sea has risen by around 30 centimeters locally, sparking warnings that the [Funafuti] atoll is set to disappear.
Now may I ask a question? How do sea levels rise “locally?” The experts claim that the ocean rose “locally” by 30 centimeters. These islands, or atolls, sit in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
Picture the Pacific as a giant bathtub. There are no walls or barriers in the tub segregating the water. After you finish filling the tub to a certain level, someone asks if you can just raise the level of water by 30 centimeters (about 12 inches) “locally,” at one end and not the other. Please tell me how this is done, save for a local storm or swell, which would of course subside. It defies the laws of fluid dynamics.
Sorry Folks – No Podcast today. My son had his final Lacrosse tournament this weekend, so I was unable to both attend that and do a podcast. Yes, despite being an evil conservative who cares little for his fellow man (and woman), I actually chose my kid over politics. Imagine that.
I’ll return next weekend with a new and exciting podcast – God willing and the creek don’t rise. And it just may, what with all this man-caused global warming.
