I think we’re in real danger of losing the spirit of Halloween. Personally, I’m rather disgruntled about this. My Facebook page is filled with “Happy All Saints” pictures, most of them featuring pumpkins and costumed kids. It’s fairly unusual for me to come out swinging against so many conservative Christians, but this is just ridiculous. […]

Someone reminded me today that big cities like New York City attract the homeless and some of them live in that city’s tunnels. We will probably learn of further casualties from this storm as loved ones fail to check in and census data is checked. But we might never know how many of the nameless […]

Here’s a picture of Chris Christie with his new best friend, Barry. Why was it necessary to give Obama such a public wet kiss on the eve of the election? For the life of me I don’t know what this man is thinking. He needs help from the feds to rebuild New Jersey, I get that. […]

I’m sure most of us have encountered ads in the yellow pages threatening to “fix” our plumbing, or seen signs outside of cafés offering “soup” of the day. Scare quotes are a fact of life, especially these days. Rarely, though, have I encountered scare quotes in as hair-raising a context as the following (though having […]

What was your most memorable Halloween costume? Nearly 35 years ago, I dressed as the Count from Sesame Street. This was your typical ’70s store bought costume. A plastic mask strapped around the head with a rubber band held in place by 2 staples. The costume was completed by a plastic covering of some sort… […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Andrew Klavan has an Attitude Problem

 

This latest video from Drew Klavan had me laughing pretty hard. Sure hope Romney wins. Because if Obama pulls this election out, Mr. Klavan will find himself at the tippy top of a presidential enemies list.

(The good news for Drew is, it’ll be a long long list….)

If this proves to be the case, we need to know now, before the election.  Read More View Post

The Ann Arbor District Library trustees are proposing a $65 million bond for a new building downtown. They want more space, and claim a complete tear-down is only 10% more expensive than a renovation. This is after a major renovation about 10 years ago followed by 3 fancy new satellite branches. I didn’t think much […]

Listening to Rush today I heard him reference the gallup poll that came out today detailing that Romney is LEADING Obama in early voting 52%-46%. Also, while I haven’t heard actual numbers for Ohio there is a post over at Commentary referencing a Politico story saying that 220,000 fewer Democrats have voted early than 2008 […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Liberté, Egalité, and Leisure

 

In his quest to build a socialist paradise, France’s premiere, Francois Hollande, has a plan to ensure that young Frenchmen don’t inadvertently develop a work ethic: ban homework.

Hollande argues that homework just isn’t “fair.” Why not? As David Azerrad reports at Heritage’s Foundry, it is because homework “gives kids who get help from their parents a leg up on those who come from families where the parents are either absent or can’t help.” As David concludes, this perfectly illustrates how “equality of opportunity” can be twisted into “sameness of opportunity.”

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. No, President Obama is Not a Pro-Life President

 

Over at the religious debate site Patheos, a writer named Libby Anne has advanced an argument that pro-lifers really ought to be pro-choice, for a host of moral reasons that I won’t deal with today. In the process of making this broader case, she also advances a particularly absurd health policy argument: that President Obama has been a pro-life president. She begins this portion of her argument by quoting another author:

As most observers surely know, the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. “Obamacare”) requires insurance coverage for birth control, a provision staunchly opposed by most of the same religious conservatives who oppose legalized abortion. If Peipert is correct, however, the ACA may prove the single most effective piece of “pro-life” legislation in the past forty years…
