What do man-babies and Starbucks ‘safe spaces’ say about America? Mike Rowe explains

Mike Rowe examined two popular recent stories, the change in policy at Starbucks coffee shops, and a 30-year-old man who refused to leave his parents’ house, and found something illuminating in common with them.

Here’s what Rowe said

“Starbucks announcing you no longer have to buy anything to lounge around its stores or use the bathroom, meanwhile 30-year-olds are suing to stay in their parents’ basements,” asked Tucker Carlson. “Are these stories connected? Do they tell us something bigger about where the country is going?” read more

Groundswell for Gun Confiscation Starts Here

from The Blaze:

‘I now actually do want to take your guns. All of your guns. Right now,’ magazine editor declares

Esquire’s editor-at-large penned a letter of sorts to the National Rifle Association and blasted the organization in the wake of the Santa Fe High School massacre in Texas.

In his Friday piece for the magazine, Dave Holmes accused the NRA of having “bought our government” and convincing its “members that the occasional school shooting, the odd literal slaughter of innocents, is an unfortunate but inevitable quirk of American life, a thing that is necessary to preserve freedom.” read more

Oliver North has made a career, post military, of irking liberals. Now, as if he couldn’t get more loathsome to leftists, he accepts the position of the next NRA president. Hooray for Ollie and good on the NRA!

Carson Wants to Raise the Rent and Put People to Work

I always liked Dr Ben Carson. Many said he was not up for the job as HUD secretary. Here is just another reason why he clearly is.

from the Blaze:

In a plan revealed on Wednesday, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson proposed a plan that would increase rental rates for some public housing residents.

If approved by Congress, the plan would raise the rent cap on the poorest families to $150 per month — the current maximum is $50. It would also make it easier for work requirements to be imposed on renters by housing authorities. Disabled and elderly tenants would be exempt. read more

The Left Corrects Itself?

Is this the start of a new trend? Is this the birth of possibly more honest reporting? Or is merely a one-off event that we conservatives can point to and say, “see, we told you sold.”

I’m going to opt for the latter.

New York Times reports on right wing conspiracies – then issues an epic correction

The New York Times was mocked on social media over a correction made Tuesday that revealed a bias many allege the news outlet has against conservatives.

Here’s what they corrected

In article detailing the role of Campbell Brown as the head of news partnerships for Facebook, technology reporter Nellie Bowles inserted an example of the “far-right conspiracy programming” that is still found on the social media behemoth. read more

Stop Giving our Money Away

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version (YouTube or SoundCloud)

Ever wonder why it takes multiple trillions of dollars to run the federal government? And why, no matter how large the federal “budget” gets, we never have enough?

We all think of waste, fraud and abuse, but there is another contributing factor. It’s death by thousands of cuts.

The feds give money away like it’s theirs to give. It’s not. It’s either ours or it’s borrowed. Either way, we will be the ones who have to pay it back and pay interest on the massive and ever growing debt.

A million dollars is a lot of money to you and me. But to the feds, it’s almost incalculable. It’s like you or me dropping a penny on the street. As it rolls away, would we chase the coin in our want to retrieve it? No we wouldn’t. Very few would do such a thing. It’s only a penny after all. It will hardly be missed. But if you start rolling thousands of pennies, it will eventually add up to a sizeable amount.

Well it was reported on Monday, that the Department of Justice rolled a million dollar penny down the street and it ended up in Florida. read more

People are Avoiding Doctors due to ObamaCare

from the Blaze:

Obamacare is now so terrible, people aren’t going to their doctors — even when sick

When the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010, its supporters celebrated the legislation, calling it a landmark bill that would make Americans healthier and lower health care costs for families. Eight years later, it’s clearer than ever the ACA’s “Obamacare” exchanges have done quite the opposite. Not only are health care costs skyrocketing, the health insurance provided by Obamacare is so expensive for people to use that millions more Americans are now choosing not to go to the doctor — even when they’re sick or injured. read more

The Second Amendment is an Individual Right – the Founders Said So

The primary purpose of the 10 Amendments that form the Bill of Rights was to protect the natural rights of the individual from encroaching federal government function. We must remind ourselves and others of this. The only way someone would not know this is if they have not read them. So when a leftist begins to spout off about the Second Amendment, that it applies only to hunting or militias, we must remind them of this. If necessary, review each of the 10 and it will become clear that the founders did not intend for nine of the 10 to pertain primarily to the individual and yet single out just the Second as not having any individual component. It defies logic. But then so does liberalism.

So if we agree that the 10 Amendments pertain to individual rights,  we must then agree that the right to “keep and bear arms” also pertains to the individual. I might also suggest that you explain what “keep and bear arms” means. Simply put, it means to own and carry arms in defense of oneself and others.

Justin Haskins of the Blaze has cataloged several of the views of our founding fathers in the following article.

from the Blaze:

In their own words: What the Founding fathers really believed about guns

When the Founding Fathers approved the “right to bear arms” and the 13 newly formed states agreed to ratify the Second Amendment, the reason couldn’t be clearer: An armed citizenry is a free citizenry.

Yet despite the clear historical evidence showing the true intention behind the Second Amendment, liberals continue to mislead the public by asserting the founders believed the Second Amendment only protects guns necessary for everyday life in the 18th century, such as hunting rifles, or that the founders believed these constitutional protections apply only to militias, not to individuals.

These notions are nothing more than left-wing delusions, carefully crafted by people who in their pursuit of power and “public safety” have become desperate to take away law-abiding citizens’ centuries-old rights to own and operate guns.

As Richard Brookhiser, a historian and author of “What Would the Founders Do?,” concluded in his book’s section on the Second Amendment, “The founders lived among guns; they would never make them illegal; they would subject them to necessary laws, following [William] Blackstone. And they broke their own laws when honor demanded it.”
