Why do more college-educated women continue to prefer Democrat candidates over Republican? Surely they are smart enough to understand that capitalism (preferred by Republicans), though not perfect, provides a higher standard of living than socialism (preferred by Democrats)!
Perhaps they simply are too busy working to pay off student loans, while trying to balance a career and motherhood, to notice. These women seem to fall for the line Democrats trot out before every election about the wage gap. It goes like this: Women working full-time make only 82 percent of what a man makes. It’s not fair. No matter how hard you work you are going to wind up on the short end of the stick and, of course, you need Democrats to save you from this ugly form of discrimination.
Democrats are the party that is against all forms of discrimination unless, of course, it involves discrimination against men in general and white and Asian men in particular. Continue reading “Wage Gap Explained, Again”
In the third presidential debate I found myself screaming at Donald Trump when he addressed Chris Wallace’s questions regarding his Supreme Court appointments.
Trump, I assumed, fell into the litmus test trap when he answered Wallace’s first question on gun rights. Trump said, “We are going to appoint justices that will feel very strongly about the Second Amendment.”
Trump threw out a another litmus test when Wallace then asked, “Do you want the court, including the justices that you will name, to overturn Roe v. Wade, which includes, in fact, states a woman’s right to abortion?” Continue reading “Trump Ties Himself in Knots on “60 Minutes””
In his State of the Union address Tuesday, President Obama, once again, told us that “the state of the union is strong.” Our citizens know differently. Here’s what Obama didn’t tell you:
- The unemployment rate may be down, but the labor participation rate is a paltry 62.6 percent. It is still stuck at a 38 year low.
- The average hourly pay also is stuck, sliding one cent last month to $25.24. That left the growth of average pay at 2.5 percent for the year, well below the 3.5 percent economists consider healthy.
- The same goes for health care. The percentage of adults without coverage remains at around 12%. Meanwhile, Obamacare premiums skyrocketed an average of 7.5%.
- The Dow Jones industrial average, faded by 2.2 percent, its first down year since 2008.
Armed with this knowledge, I was much more interested in Monday night’s report on the “State of the Family” delivered by Tony Perkins at the Family Research Council Continue reading “The State of the Family”
The PC police, who seem hellbent on forcing all people to accept gay marriage after the controversial Supreme Court Obergefell decision, suffered a setback when activist federal judge David Bunning released Kim Davis from a Kentucky jail. Davis, a county clerk, spent five days behind bars after refusing to have marriage licenses to same-sex couples go out under her name, which would, in effect, be condoning a practice that violates her religious beliefs.
Judge Bunning simply could have slapped Kim Davis with a fine but, no, this activist liberal judge chose to throw her in jail until she complied with his wishes. Tuesday, Bunning backed down, bowing to pressure after denying Davis her due process and her rights under the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Continue reading “Before You Cast Your First Stone (At Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis)”
With President Obama as welcome on the campaign trail as brownies at a meeting of Weight Watchers, and his policies as popular as Bach at a bowling alley, Democrats can be forgiven for rolling out the old “war on women” thing. After all, it’s their ace in the hole, a proven winner when it comes to stirring up the electorate and getting out the vote.
“Those mean old Republicans want to take away your birth control, keep your wages below that of your male counterparts,” and did I hear, “deny your right to vote”? Surely that must be in there somewhere.
Can’t blame them because they have been sewing these bad seeds for so long, it’s little wonder they are hoping that some still will bear fruit.
You really can’t blame women for falling for this gambit. It’s not that women are dumb or that few take the time to research these charges that are thrown about like so much confetti before every election. It’s just that most women are simply doing their best to survive in what is fast becoming a socialist, feminist utopia.

Nobody likes a bully. In the movies, we cheer as the bullies are defeated but in real life we often give into them simply because no one likes to be bullied. We take the road of least resistance, even when it means giving up important, even sacred ground.
Such was the case in Arizona when Governor Jan Brewer vetoed a most reasonable bill updating the state’s “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” to clarify two ambiguities in the state’s law which was modeled after the federal REFRA signed by Bill Clinton. Specifically, this new version made it clear that one’s “free exercise of religion” does not stop when you run a business. And that this “free exercise” not only protects you against the government but civil legal action as well.
Recently, business owners have been forced to go to great expense to defend their right to operate in a way that will not compromise the moral values they hold dear. The lawsuits brought by Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods against Obamacare’s birth control mandate are two of the most visible. The U.S. Supreme Court will decide these cases next summer.
Ready or not, this issue is headed your way. Continue reading “The Bullies Won in Arizona (and are on their way to your state)”
The relevant question in the gay marriage debate largely goes unanswered: “How does gay marriage harm traditional marriage and children?”
It is frustrating to see so many pro-family advocates and the attorneys representing them in court completely drop the ball when the answer is relatively simple.
There are only two reasons to marry: 1) to make a vow before God and have the union recognized by the church. 2) to have the union recognized by the government.
Since all major religions condemn homosexuality in the strongest terms, reason # 1 is an attempt to “feel good” at best.
So, why does a couple seek to have their union recognized by the government? Conversely, why do so many heterosexual couples no longer bother? Continue reading “Why We’re Losing Traditional Marriage”
Conservatives are confident that Barack Obama’s support of gay marriage will cost him the election. This may or may not be the case. Polls show Americans to be evenly divided on this issue. However, one thing is clear: While older voters are strongly opposed to these unions, younger voters strongly support them and the gap on this issue continues to close each and every year.
Conservatives are slowly losing the battle to protect marriage. If we don’t change our tactics we will lose, not today or even tomorrow, but we will lose! Continue reading “Drip, Drip, Drip: Conservatives slowing losing Marriage Debate”
The battle to protect traditional marriage in California was the most expensive ballot measure in the nation decided in Tuesday’s election. “So goes California, goes the nation,” was the battle cry of activists on both sides as money poured into California from all 50 states to fight for and against the initiative that amends the state’s constitution and puts the definition of marriage out of reach of judicial activists. Continue reading “Lessons from California’s Battle to Protect Marriage”
It was one of the most embarrassing moments on a cable news show. Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, invited family law attorney Ron Schweitzer on his program to talk about why a recent decision by the California Supreme Court, striking down a state law prohibiting same-sex marriage, should be overturned by a ballot initiative amending the state’s constitution.
During the course of the segment, O’Reilly pressed Schweitzer numerous times to give him one good reason, outside of religion, for opposing gay marriage. Schweitzer couldn’t come up with one. Continue reading “Why should the state protect marriage?”
