Joke of the Day

Bob had finally made it to the last round of the $5,000,000 Question. The night before the big question, he told the M.C. that he desired a question on American History.

The big night had arrived. Bob made his way on stage in front of the studio and TV audience. He had become the talk of the week. He was the best guest this show had ever seen. The M.C. stepped up to the mic.

“Bob, you have chosen American History as your final question. You know that if you correctly answer this question, you will walk away $5,000,000 dollars richer. Are you ready?” read more

Think College is Expensive Now – Wait Until its Free

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

There is a well known saying which most of us have heard. It goes: “You think it’s expensive now. Wait until it’s free.”

We heard it from those darned conservatives and fiscal hawks prior to the passage of ObamaCare, and the left claimed we were crying wolf. We said: “you think health insurance is expensive now – wait until it’s free.” And the left laughed and called us fearmongers.

They on the left knew that ObamaCare, the government manipulation of the health insurance market, would actually save us money, because – you know – that’s what always happens when the public sector injects itself into the private sector.

And son-of-a-gun if they weren’t right. On average, everyone saved over $2500, just as it was advertised by Obama. Oh wait…that must have happened on Earth 2, where Hillary Clinton is president.

Here on Earth 1, everything the government gets involved in always ends up costing more – a lot more. ObamaCare is just one example. Another that most of are all too aware of is the cost of higher education. read more

Best Headphones Ever

After a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign and more than a year of painstaking design, testing and production work, Nura has finally gone into production with its first consumer headphones, and I’ve had my hands on a set for the last month. These are not press freebies, either – after playing with the prototypes last year, I immediately slapped down my own money for a set. That’s a first for me. read more

Joke of the Day

A lawyer’s dog, running about unleashed, b-lines for the local butcher shop and steals a roast off the counter. The butcher goes to the lawyer’s office and asks, “if a dog, running unleashed, steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dog’s owner?”

“Absolutely,” the lawyer responded. read more

WND Exclusive – I’m White — Through no Fault of my Own

Talk about a great gig if you can get it. Being able to quit your day job and travel around the country, getting paid good money for bashing your own race. It’s possible you don’t even have to really believe it, as long as it sounds sincere and sufficiently vitriolic.

Not many have been afforded this opportunity. The only one I am aware of is Dr. Robin DiAngelo. She has a Ph.D. in Multicultural Education and was a lecturer at her alma mater, the University of Washington in Seattle. She is also white. However, it appears she feels quite guilty about this.

Now she receives invitations to speak at colleges by organizations such as the Public Affairs Alliance for Communities of Color at the University of Texas at Austin. read more

An international team of astronomers has discovered a temperate Earth-sized world with the potential to harbor alien life. The planet, known as Ross 128 b, is located a mere 11 light-years from Earth, and will one day become the closest exoplanet to our Sun, dethroning our current immediate neighbor exoplanet – Proxima b. read more

The American Experiment is One of Balance

Yes, Thanksgiving is almost upon us. A day when families all get together and give thanks for blessings afforded us as Americans.

I personally have much to be thankful for, but that’s not what I mean about giving thanks.

Although it is often overused by we on the right – I’m thankful to be an American. It sounds cheesy and jingoistic. It may be, but that doesn’t make it any less true, particularly when you know American history and what our forefathers had to go through to achieve it. And no, this will not be a history lesson. Not much of one anyway.

I wish I could travel back in time, not to change anything, but just to thank the founders for what they did – thank them for their foresight. Assure them that they did the right thing – that they didn’t go through all that for nothing. That hundreds of years later we are still talking about it, still quoting them and trying to live their ideal.

I would assure them that all the crap they had to endure was not in vain – that they made a profound difference – and not just for us, but for the entire world. If it wasn’t for them, Earth would be awash in anarchy, despotism and dictatorships. read more

Video Podcast – The American Balancing Act Between Mob Rule and Despotism

As Thanksgiving is almost upon us, my Thanksgiving wish is travel back in time and thank the founders for giving us America. I’d let them know that their efforts were not in vain – that they did make a difference.

Sadly, despite their efforts, America as they envisioned can not be sustained for ever. Eventually even America will succumb to anarchy or totalitarian rule. Their goal was to maintain that delicate balance between the two.

But they knew, and as Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, that eventually it will be our right, our duty, to throw off our Government and reset the system.
