The Media Has Done A Terrible Job Covering Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law

The Media Has Done A Terrible Job Covering Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law

A lot of garbage has been written this week about Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law. Huffington Post’s article labels it the “LGBT Discrimination Law.” Gawker calls it the “Anti-Gay Bill.” Jezebel calls it the “Religious Discrimination Bill,” which is a phrase you can parse for hours, until you realize it would make more sense if it was the law that led the pilgrims to flee England on the Mayflower. It should be pointed out that businesses are free to discriminate against any type of person they want unless a specific statute prohibits…

Mo’ne Davis Is Right To Say Her Offensive Tweeter Deserves A Second Chance

Mo’ne Davis Is Right To Say Her Offensive Tweeter Deserves A Second Chance

This week Mo’ne Davis, the 14-year old girl who took the nation by storm by pitching a shut-out in the Little League World Series, reached out to university officials asking that they give Joey Casselberry a second chance. Casselberry is the junior at the Bloomsburg (Pennsylvania) University who was kicked off the baseball team for the following tweet: “Disney is making a movie about Mo’ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That sl– got rocked by Nevada.” Casselberry is without a doubt, an idiot. It was stupid of him to tweet that out. But there…

How Politicians Can Learn From 3-Year Olds About the World

This past Sunday as Ted Cruz visited New Hampshire to do whatever it is a Texas Senator does in New Hampshire in the middle of February on a non-election year, a tiny 3-year old girl put him in his place. Cruz went into a hysterical rant about how awful the world is, as I imagine he was somehow paid to do. Senator’s are basically like anti-hype-men, like a reverse Flavor Flav who just talks about how terrible things are: “Yeah boyeee! We got the worst thing ever going down right here…

A Fun Look At The Lies In Hilary’s Email Press Conference

A Fun Look At The Lies In Hilary’s Email Press Conference

This afternoon Hilary held  a press conference to discuss her use of a private email server as Secretary of State. While most people think of her email scandal as a minor story, it is interesting for the simple reason that it’s fun to imagine why she did it. For what purpose did she set up a personal email server in her home once she was confirmed as Secretary of State? She had presidential ambitious and knew this would come out eventually, so why did she feel the need to do it? It…

Jihadi John Shows Boredom, Not Poverty Causes Terrorism

Jihadi John Shows Boredom, Not Poverty Causes Terrorism

Many were shocked this week when Jihadi John, a British man who beheaded many on behalf of ISIS, was revealed to be Mohammed Emwazi – an ordinary dude who attended school in England. It was especially surprising given that it was just months after John Kerry declared that poverty was the “root cause of terrorism.” And so we have a huge common interest in dealing with this issue of poverty, which in many cases is the root cause of terrorism or even the root cause of the disenfranchisement of millions of people on this…
