WHY OBAMACARE MUST BE REPLACED: One family's ObamaCare tale.

Which is why I want ObamaCare axed. Health care is my responsibility, and how I choose to achieve it should be mine as well.
SPEAKING TOO SOON: Why Trump’s ‘wiretapping’ tweets were a mistake.

Sorry, Jonah, but I disagree. It's time for our political class to stop talking among themselves and start talking to us - as President Trump does with his tweeting.
YES. YES HE DID: Did Obama spy on Trump?

We're only beginning to plumb the depths of the Obama administration's depravity.
IT'S LOOKING MORE LIKELY that Republicans may be inclined to use the Parliamentarian dodge to repeal ObamaCare in toto.

A RIGHT TO REPAIR: Why Nebraska farmers are taking on John Deere.

Which also explains why I am increasingly reluctant to buy anything whose basic functionality can only be repaired by an 'authorized dealer'.
HERE'S A QUESTION I'VE BEEN ASKING: Where's the Democrats' plan to fix ObamaCare?
IMPRIMIS: Thinking about Vladimir Putin.

President Trump is - and has been - correct: no matter what you think of Vladimir Putin as a person, any rational person must recognize that the man is a leader. To believe or speak otherwise is mere political posturing - virtue signaling.

Read it all. Then read it again.
SUPREME COURT: Transgender bathrooms are not a federal (constitutional) responsibility.
'ADULTING' SCHOOL teaches young adults grown-up skills. I blame the education monopoly (primarily K-12) for focusing more and more on 'social justice' and less and less on actual knowlege.

I noticed it (a little) with my own children, but luckily they graduated before social justice warfare became de rigueur.
A tourist walked into a Chinese curio shop in San Francisco. While looking around at the exotic merchandise, he noticed a very lifelike, life-sized, bronze statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but was so incredibly striking the tourist decided he must have it. He took it to the old shop owner and asked, "How much for the bronze rat?"

"Ahhh, you have chosen wisely! It is $12 for the rat and $100 for the story," said the wise old man.

The tourist quickly pulled out twelve dollars. "I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story".

As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat, the tourist noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and had begun following him down the street. This was a bit disconcerting so he began walking faster.

A couple blocks later he looked behind him and saw to his horror the herd of rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they began squealing. Sweating now, the tourist began to trot toward San Francisco Bay.

Again, after a couple blocks, he looked around only to discover that the rats now numbered in the millions, and were squealing and coming toward him faster and faster. Terrified, he ran to the edge of the Bay and threw the bronze rat as far as he could into the Bay.

Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the Bay after the bronze rat and were all drowned.

The man walked back to the curio shop in Chinatown.

"Ahhh," said the owner, "You come back for story?"

"No sir," said the man, "I came back to see if you have a bronze Democrat."
