Senator Hoeven Announces Permanent Change To Federal School Lunch Guidelines

In the annals meddlesome federal government policies, school lunch policy micromanaged for the entire nation from Washington DC has got to be one of the most asinine things we’ve ever done. But that’s just what Congress did, as a part of Michelle Obama’s War on Fat Kids. When the feds implemented new requirements for school

Global Warming Researchers Rescued From From Global Cooling

For critics of the supposed “scientific consensus” around global warming, the New Year holiday was imbued with a sense of schadenfreude as a group of climate change researchers got stuck in unexpectedly large ice pack in Antarctica. Thankfully, they’ve all been rescued by a helicopter after multiple attempts by other ships failed: A long-awaited rescue

Obamacare Has Resulted In More People Losing Insurance Than Getting It

Here’s an ugly truth: Obamacare may have promised health insurance for the masses. But on its first day, it’s left more Americans without coverage than before the law was passed. More than 4.7 million Americans had their health insurance canceled as a result of any of the thousand-plus-page law’s new rules, the Associated Press reports,

Should Edward Snowden Be Allowed To Come Home?

Thanks to bullying being a bona fide “crisis” in the media, and thanks to a raft of celebrities championing the cause, grandstanding politicians have been quick to jump on the fad. But a side effect of the anti-bullying

Your Local Library Soon To Become Obamacare Enrollment Center

The Obama administration is shifting into high gear to roll out Obamacare, and the latest conscripts are your local librarians who are being tasked promoting the law, especially in conservative states where the law is acutely unpopular. The nation’s librarians will be recruited to help people get signed up for insurance under President Barack Obama’s

Christians Should Welcome Atheist Monument

In Florida, a group of atheists have put up their own monument near a public display of the 10 commandments, and they say they have plans for more monuments across the United States. I tend to be turned off by people who get militant about their religious beliefs, be they atheist or Christian or otherwise.

From The Left: The Surprising Results Of Health Insurance Exchanges

I have been a fan of health care reform for over 25 years. I remember arguing in the early 90’s that if the Clinton administration did not do something about Health Care costs, health care would approach 15% of the GDP. Well, as it turns out, Republicans got their way, and nothing was done until
