AMMO GRRRLL on progressives and parasites.

Read the comments.

NO LONGER SEXIST: House committee votes to require women to sign up for draft.

Feminists should be careful about what they wish for....
GOP INSIDERS: Trump nomination could hobble the party for years.

As if that's a bad thing....
WHY DOES the U.S. Air Force want to destroy the struggling U.S. space launch business? Read the entire post, then go to the Lexington Institute mission statement:
The Lexington Institute believes in limiting the role of the federal government to those functions explicitly stated or implicitly defined by the Constitution. The Institute therefore actively opposes the unnecessary intrusion of the federal government into the commerce and culture of the nation, and strives to find nongovernmental, market-based solutions to public-policy challenges. We believe a dynamic private sector is the greatest engine for social progress and economic prosperity.
Now explain the contradiction.

TAKEAWAYS from Trump's foreign policy speech.
HILLARY CLINTON: Half my Cabinet will be women. So being female is now a job requirement? Do transgenders count? In either direction?
LIVE FROM OMAHA, it’s James Hansen, and "I have never heard such nonsense in my life."
THE SILENT NASTY: Blame the Left for the deteriorating tone of our political discourse.
[T]he Left has felt blithely justified in sneering at opposing opinions it deems racist, sexist, or otherwise hateful. But it just doesn’t work. The eyes see what they see; the heart knows what it knows. Bottle up the human experience in silence, and it will ultimately break forth in rage. Thus, the result of these last 50 years of ceaseless left-wing incivility has been not a rainbow-striped paradise of social justice, but the utter collapse of our civic dialogue as the Right now responds with vulgar cruelty of its own.
The Left has forgotten that the sword is double-edged; the Right is discovering it.
POWERLINE'S WEEK IN PICTURES has stall-to-stall coverage of the bathroom wars. My favorite, though, is this one:

The comparisons of the presidential candidates to Sesame Street characters are also excellent - and apropos.

For your added enjoyment, here are some more "Bernies" from around the intertubes:

Socialism - the gift that keeps on giving (your stuff)....
NEW YORK TIMES: The Death of Liberalism.

Every time I try to reread this article, I keep asking myself "Does this guy even have a clue that there's a world outside his bubble?" Read it for yourself to get a glimpse of 'reality'.

MICHAEL RAMIREZ on the U.S.S. Economy. It would be more accurate if the captain were on the lifeboat looking back at the ship....

WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH KANSAS? Nothing; they got welfare right.
LIBERALISM is an umbrage factory.
SECRET SERVICE running out of agents.
[T]he U.S. Secret Service may need to seek outside help to fulfill its mission because agents are leaving the agency faster than they can be replaced.
I wonder why....
