Only The Government Could Lose Money Selling Booze To Football Fans

From the “you can’t make this stuff up” department: The University of Minnesota lost almost $16,000 last year on alcohol sales at home football games, despite selling more than $900,000 worth of beer and wine. The school released the figures to the Associated Press after a records request, which showed it incurred significant expenses from

Why Ed Schultz Got Demoted: He Was Too Much Of A Blowhard For Even MSNBC To Stomach

Ed Schultz is trying to put a brave face on his demotion from a coveted prime time slot to the wastelands of weekend cable news programming. He’s even claiming he volunteered to do it. Nobody is buying it, of course, and it looks like the reason Schultz is being put out of sight is because

Things Not Going Great For Ed Schultz

The rise of Ed Schultz’s media career has always been surprising to me. From a regional talk radio host here in North Dakota to a nationally syndicated liberal talker to an evening weekday show on a major cable news channel, he went pretty far.

Wisconsin School System Encourages Students To Wear "White Privilege" Bracelets

Bankrupt Nation Full Of Fatties Considering Bailout For Big Sugar

The action aims to prop up tumbling U.S. sugar prices, which have fallen 18% since

Shocker: Taxpayers May Have To Bail Out Vikings Stadium Building Plan

Subsidies for professional sports venues has to be one of the most ludicrous things in politics. Professional sports are hugely profitable enterprises, where the teams are owned by billionaires and staffed with millionaires, so the idea that there’s a need to subsidize the stadiums and arenas where these people conduct their business is absurd. Yet,

"Most Republicans Are Fat Asses"

I’ve got to admit that I’ve given up watching cable news, but this segment from Sean Hannity’s show in which the statement “most Republicans are fat asses” is used was just too wild to ignore. My favorite part is the cigarette getting lit up on-air, but the argument in favor of nanny state laws because

Video: ND Democrat Says Tax Cuts Might Make The Economy Too Friendly For Business

Yesterday was a very interesting day in the North Dakota House. They were in floor session for something like seven hours, and considered a lot of very controversial bills. I thought I’d highlight a couple of the sillier comments that jumped out at me from all that talking. First, here’s Rep. Corey Mock, arguing against
