$14 Billion Saved at the Pump This Year

2014 may not be a year we’ll look back on fondly as a nation, but there were bright spots to be found in all the gloom. The “ice bucket challenge” demonstrated that America has not lost its charitable spirit, we mercifully avoided a major outbreak of Ebola within our borders, and we threw those damn dirty Democrats out of the ...

Distractions? No, Not By a Long Shot

When explaining why Democrats lost so decisively in the 2014 midterms, Nancy Pelosi blamed the distractions of Ebola and ISIS for taking voters away from the real issues of the day.

Bush was rushed to the hospital after a medical scare characterized as “shortness of breath.” While the ensuing reports have indicated the nation’s 41st president will be okay, the emergency provides us with a moment to reflect on a leader often underrated in reputation.

The American Dream Lives On

If there is a concept nearly every liberal can agree on, it’s that the American Dream is dead. Some will even go as far as to claim that it never existed to begin with. And it’s this underlying, unAmerican philosophy that drives the policies of the Democratic Party. It’s this failure to appreciate freedom that drives their attack on the ...

Rand Paul Lists His Festivus Grievances

It would be difficult to come up with a sitcom that has as profound an effect on pop culture as Seinfeld. Years after it went off the air, “no soup for you,” “shrinkage,” and “yada yada yada” are just a few of the phrases we still commonly use.
