As this Martin Luther King Day passes in a year of contentious political battles, I’ve chosen to reflect on one of my childhood heroes. Listening to MLK’s speeches always got me going, and watching Obama makes me realize how destructively manipulative such rhetoric actually is. The current holiday may well have been borne of far-Left […]
Currently making — mocking!?! — news are the latest hyperbolic rantings and chimerical falsities to spew from the snaky pout of Debbie MassiveMouth Schultz. Her virtual accusation of the Tea-party as confederates in the shooting of her “friend” Gabriel Giffords and more than 15 others in Arizona is low, bombastic banter aimed at the sophomoric cognition of a politically immature audience.

Hurricane Arthur was moving offshore and away from North Carolina’s Outer Banks on Friday morning, one day after making landfall, leaving about 22,000 without electricity and threatening holiday weekend plans along the eastern seaboard. Arthur, which strengthened into a Category 2 hurricane packing 100 mph winds on Thursday, reached land about 11:15 p.m. between […]
