Here’s The Brady Bunch Song You Keep Hearing in That Commercial

May 23, 2015

I watched so many Brady Bunch reruns in the 70’s and 80’s that I never need to watch the show again but the cable provider Xfinity has a new ad that features a Brady Bunch song.

Now you’ll also have this song stuck in your head for the next 48 hours too.

First the ad, then the original

Thomas Sowell – The Government Doesn’t ‘Ask’ For Your Money

May 23, 2015

The great Thomas Sowell points out Obama’s dishonest portrayal of taxation…

‘Just Asking’

In a recent panel discussion on poverty at Georgetown University, President Barack Obama gave another demonstration of his mastery of rhetoric — and disregard of reality.

One of the ways of fighting poverty, he proposed, was to “ask from society’s lottery winners” that they make a “modest investment” in government programs to help the poor.

Since free speech is guaranteed to everyone by the First Amendment to the Constitution, there is nothing to prevent anybody from asking anything from anybody else. But the federal government does not just “ask” for money. It takes the money it wants in taxes, usually before the people who have earned it see their paychecks.

Despite pious rhetoric on the left about “asking” the more fortunate for more money, the government does not “ask” anything. It seizes what it wants by force. If you don’t pay up, it can take not only your paycheck, it can seize your bank account, put a lien on your home and/or put you in federal prison.

So please don’t insult our intelligence by talking piously about “asking.”


The Democrats’ Unique Interpretation of Memorial Day

May 23, 2015

For most Americans, Memorial Day is a time to remember fallen members of our armed forces.

The Democratic Party seems to think it’s about Obama eating ice cream.

Elderly Politician Forgets Where She Is

May 23, 2015

Hillary Clinton recently forgot she was in New Hampshire. I seem to remember the left making lots of jokes about John McCain’s age in 2008. How about now?

Via the Weekly Standard…

Hillary Forgets She’s in New Hampshire: ‘Here in Washington’

Hillary Clinton misstated her location at a campaign event today in New Hampshire. Instead of saying New Hampshire, the presidential candidate said, “Here in Washington.”

The Week in Review at College Insurrection

May 23, 2015

It was Murals and Mattresses Week at College Insurrection.

Cross posted at Legal Insurrection…

A shocking story from Marquette University made headlines this week.

The other story that dominated the news was the ‘Mattress Girl’ of Columbia.

There was no shortage of leftism in other corners of academia this week.

There was also a strange incident at Kennesaw State.

No surprises here.

Since we have an election coming up…

Compare and contrast.

I’m in the wrong business.

Watch out for those wacky professors.

Higher ed bubble update.

Who needs the Ivy League?

No one was surprised but them.

Transparency: State Department Releases Heavily Redacted Hillary Emails

May 22, 2015

On the Friday of a holiday weekend, of course.

I can’t help but notice that the Washington Post and the New York Times aren’t asking their readers to help them crowdsource these emails.

Look at what The Blaze found…

Nearly 300 New Hillary Emails Released — and They Confirm She Received Now-Classified Info on Private Email

The State Department released the first batch of emails from Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state on Friday, offering additional insight into how she reacted to the deadly attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi.

Spokeswoman Marie Harf said publication includes 296 emails given to a House committee investigating the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya.

Quick! Someone find a YouTube user to blame…

Christian Jeweler Makes Wedding Rings For Gay Couple, Gets Condemned Anyway

May 22, 2015

The message being sent here is that Christians can’t win, no matter what they do.

How is that fair? Short answer: It isn’t…

Heads LGBTs Win, Tails Christians Lose

So, a Canadian Christian jeweler custom-made a pair of engagement rings for a lesbian couple, Nicole White and Pam Renouf, at their request. Later, when they found out that the jeweler personally opposes same-sex marriage, they went to pieces and demanded their money back. From the CBC’s report:

“They were great to work with. They seemed to have no issues. They knew the two of us were a same-sex couple,” White said.

“I referred some of my friends to them, just because I did get some good customer service and they had good prices.”

That was before one friend went in to purchase a ring for his girlfriend — and instead found a distressing sign.

It reads: “The sanctity of marriage is under attack. Let’s keep marriage between a man and a woman.”

The couple now believes the rings they ordered will have been tainted by having been fashioned by jeweler Esau Jardon’s hands, given what impure thoughts he holds in his mind.

The guy made the rings and did it well but that’s not good enough?

Dear gay marriage activists…

People are starting to notice that it’s never good enough.

Democrats Fear Hillary Rubio Matchup

May 22, 2015

This shouldn’t be surprising. Marco Rubio is younger and fresher than Hillary. He also carries the historic first quality that Democrats think they own. Oh, and also…Florida.

The New York Times reported…

Prospect of Hillary Clinton-Marco Rubio Matchup Unnerves Democrats

They use words like “historic” and “charismatic,” phrases like “great potential” and “million-dollar smile.” They notice audience members moved to tears by an American-dream-come-true success story. When they look at the cold, hard political math, they get uneasy.

An incipient sense of anxiety is tugging at some Democrats — a feeling tersely captured in four words from a blog post written recently by a seasoned party strategist in Florida: “Marco Rubio scares me.”

What is so unnerving to them at this early phase of the 2016 presidential campaign still seems, at worst, a distant danger: the prospect of a head-to-head general-election contest between Mr. Rubio, the Republican senator from Florida, and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

On a related note, Marco Rubio has a new supporter. Rick Harrison of Pawn Stars is a big fan.

I hate most reality TV but I’ve always liked Pawn Stars and Harrison.
