Huckabee Talks Fort Hood Shooting

On April 2, the second shooting in the last five years took place at Fort Hood, the U.S. army base in Killeen, Texas. Since then, a debate has raged over how to prevent future military base shootings. And recently, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee – who you read about yesterday – put his hat in...

344 Doctors You Should Be Afraid Of

For the first time since 1979, doctor billing data from the Medicare program is now available to the public… and some of the numbers that have been revealed are truly shocking. A tiny portion of Medicare physicians – just 1% of the 825,000 doctors whose data appears in the analysis – collected nearly $11 billion...

Obama’s Education Reform Fails An Entire Generation

Testing season is under way for students in 22 of the states that adopted the Common Core State Standards. Most are taking part in a “practice run” of the assessments, essentially a field test that will be used to make final tweaks before the program is fully implemented for the 2014-2015 school year. The test...

Democrats Scream “Elections Are Rigged!”

On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled five to four in favor of removing the limit placed on individuals for total campaign contributions. In 2014, that limit would have been $123,200… $48,600 for candidates and $74,600 for PACs and party committees. Now, though, individual donors may contribute as much money as they wish, so long...

The Supreme Court Decides the Fate of Apple

On March 31, the Supreme Court began hearing oral arguments in a case that could significantly impact software giants such as Microsoft (MSFT), Google (GOOG) and Samsung (SSNLF). The case has also turned the spotlight on an issue that continues to give judges (and just about everyone else) fits – software patents. The case features...

Forget Obamacare, Millions Walk the Plank Instead

Well, here we go again. The latest news from the Obama White House is that the deadline for Obamacare enrollment will be extended. How surprising. It seems to me that our current administration needs a short vocab lesson, as the word “accountability” is missing from its repertoire. How else would you explain the continued deadline...

A Scary Alliance Between Exxon and Putin

In the midst of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, few people have taken notice of the deep alliance between ExxonMobil (XOM) and the state-controlled Russian oil company, Rosneft. You see, years before the annexation of Crimea chilled U.S.-Russian relations, Exxon had struck a multi-billion-dollar deal with Rosneft. Rosneft needed the expertise of Western oil companies,...

America’s Trillion-Dollar “Superweapon” Badly Misfires

No matter which side of the political spectrum you’re on, you likely believe that education is important. It’s nearly impossible to deny that a good education is necessary for both personal and professional development. Consider that, according to DoSomething.org, 85% of current jobs (and 90% of new jobs) require some college or post-secondary education. And...

Obamacare Kills Its First Politician

Talk of midterm elections is heating up, and that means it’s a great time to check back in on Obamacare. Right about now, the president’s healthcare reform has Democrats sweating. In Florida, Alex Sink – an Obamacare supporter who was leading in the polls – lost to Republican David Jolly in a special election. Though...

Highly PO’d, Dianne Feinstein Starts Mudslinging

Look out, Capitol Hill – Dianne Feinstein is pissed. The chairwoman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence didn’t mince any words in a speech she gave Tuesday regarding the CIA’s alleged misconduct, which targeted members of Congress (including those in her own committee). More specifically, the Senator from California said that the CIA had...
