Free Speech for Me, But Not Against One with an Allergy


“For one vital element of humor is inequality, and striking visual, aural, and physical differences,” Paul Johnson writes in his slim 2010 book Humorists. “Differences in sex, age, color, race, religion, physical ability, and strength lie at the source of probably a majority of jokes since the beginning of human self-consciousness.” If this is true, […]

The American News Media is Repugnant: Donald Trump is Completely Sane


From the Washington Free Beacon, a super-cut version of the White House correspondents asking inane questions of the President’s doctor: I would vote for Donald Trump 100 times just to annoy these vapid simpletons. They are a farce. The President keeps pointing out how the media is unfair, biased and mendacious. Every day, the media […]

Brothers in Sweat 


I hate exercise for its own sake. I just hate it. In younger days, when I could be in the game, I played in all manner of softball and amateur baseball leagues, and took part in more pick-up playground basketball games than I can count. Thus fun and fitness were married for those years. (Where […]

Summer Is the Perfect Time to Practice Parent-Centered Education


In most parts of the United States, “School’s out for summer!” Commercials on television and radio have started advertising waterparks and other nearby amusements, repeating promises for “keeping your kids from getting bored this summer.” And while outdoor physical activity is important, the summer recess is the perfect time to dive head-first into parent-centric education.

Mother Privilege


There’s lots of talk of “privilege” these days. If a person is using that word, they’re often saying, “You might want to check your privilege.” Well, yesterday, I checked my privilege. I’m a mother. Birthing a child and becoming a mother is something that only a human with a uterus can do. It’s the ultimate privilege. […]

Obamacare Repeal Could Strengthen Medicaid


There is no shortage of dire warnings from the press, medical industry lobbyists, and other left-leaning organizations about the American Health Care Act’s (AHCA) landmark Medicaid reforms. At the heart of their criticism is the misguided notion that more spending improves care for the most vulnerable, as well as the assumption that status quo Medicaid is serving people […]

The CREATES Act Is Back


This past Thursday, April 27, a major piece of legislation that deserves far more attention made its debut in the Senate. I refer to the “Creating and Restoring Equal Access to Equivalent Samples Act of 2017,” abbreviated as the CREATES Act of 2017. While this bill originally was scheduled to debut back in February, apparently […]

More Parents Exploiting “Transgender” Children


Watch this viral video below. There are currently over 3 million views. That’s more than 3 million people who’ve seen these young children being “affirmed” by their parents for being transgender…at this moment. Why would parents do this to their children? Children change their minds. Adults change their minds. More than that, these children have […]

Six Ways to Make Health Care Affordable


As Congress looks to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare, many are asking how to make health care affordable for Americans. Across the nation, Obamacare increased the number of people holding insurance cards but failed to increase access to quality and affordable health services. For many, the cost of health care […]

How and Why Obamacare Repeal Will Succeed


The tsunami of criticism that greeted last week’s introduction of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was probably inevitable, considering the questionable character of some career politicians, the liberal inclination of the legacy media, and the hopelessly convoluted maze of mandates, taxes, and regulations that is Obamacare. Even honest observers got important details of AHCA […]
