The only thing worse than an overgrown national government is a bloated transnational bureaucracy, and the European Union is indeed the unaccountable modern super-state run amok. The distant government is disliked by many Europeans, but remains stubbornly entrenched, passing ever more niggling laws to control behavior, not protect freedom.

The crazy-left members of the LA City Council recently added Muslims to the growing list of diverse tribes demanding more positive attention from the mainstream. One of the problems with modern liberal thinking is the inability to consider the concept of “enemy” — multiculturalism seems to have that effect.
Not every Muslim human is a murderous [...]
In 1996, Californians voted with a 54 percent majority to prohibit racial preferences via Proposition 209. Race hucksters have been squawking ever since, and certain institutions, particularly the University of California, have come up with a string of squirrelly work-arounds, such as “holistic” admissions.
The latest liberal revolt against achievement is SCA5, a bill passed in [...]
It can be iffy to compare polling done by different companies, since the exact wording can affect outcome. Still, a recent Rasmussen survey may reflect considerable disillusion in government, perhaps as a result of the monumental failure of Obamacare.
61% Favor Smaller Government With Fewer Services and Lower Taxes, Rasmussen Reports, February 25, 2014
Voters have a [...]
In a decision of the Fourth Circuit Appeals Court, judges allowed that an illegal alien MS-13 gangster could get on a path to citizenship because he had renounced his gang affiliation. A couple of Republican House members are upset at the precedent that decision would set, but perhaps the judges had merely absorbed the spirit [...]
A couple times last week, Rush Limbaugh explored an interesting byway of political history related to the Kennedy assassination, an event which marked its 50th anniversary on Friday. The idea was that that the left could not accept the fact that an individual communist, Lee Harvey Oswald, murdered the Democrat President, and as a result, [...]
Tuesday’s poll data was quite a surprise considered from the viewpoint of the efficacy of the propaganda media. The drumbeat Opravda voices have been incessantly insisting the Tea Party to be evil and racist, so any decent showing by the group in polling is worth noting.
Tea Party bashing has become quite the sport for liberals [...]
Now that Sweden has invited an unlimited number of Syrians to become refugees of that nation, one citizen has produced a welcome video for the new Syrian Swedes.
Hans Erling Jensen, the video’s speaker, is the Director of Free Speech Europe, which has recently been promoting the work of artist Lars Vilks who has received numerous [...]
The current administration is on a jihad against public safety. A couple recent examples: cutbacks of the Border Patrol and the release of thousands of foreign criminals from prison to American streets — both using the sequester as an excuse.
Another dangerous policy change is the renewal of rubber-stamp visas for Saudi nationals to enter the [...]
Judging from the political spiels emanating from the Democratic Convention, the word “diversity” appears to have fallen from favor. The new expression is “inclusion” which adds a warm and cuddly aspect to the celebration of cultural difference. (The fact that human nature is hard-wired for tribalism matters little when liberal groupthink dictates otherwise.)
So it was [...]
It’s been a long time since I attended college, so the idea of a summer book assignment for all incoming freshmen is new to me — which I learned from a cheerful segment on taxpayer-funded NPR.
Not that a required book reading is a bad notion per se, but look at the choice. Out of many [...]
Thoughtful columnist Robert Samuelson recently posed some questions about the silly idea of universal college education and its corrosive effect on preparing young people for future gainful employment.
It is indeed curious that so much of K-12 is geared toward sending all the kiddies on to the big university when only 30 percent of Americans have [...]
