Stop It, America. Politicians Can Not Make Our Lives Better

Rod Thomson Here’s the deal, if you are looking to this president, or you were looking to the past president, or you are looking to a future president to make your life better you’re on a fool’s errand.

EXPLAINED: Why Democrats Are Generationally Blind To The Spectacular Failure of Socialism

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” – Margaret Thatcher In full deference to the Iron Lady, that’s not the only problem.

Socialism vs. Trump after Massive Turnout in Florida’s Tuesday Primary

Rod Thomson Florida is the largest swing state in the union and possibly the most demographically representative with transplants from the Northeast and Midwest, along with natives of the South.

California’s Slow Decline Into The Abyss of Venezuela

Rod Thomson The slow, steady erasure of California’s middle class holds the very real potential to descend that state into a version of the chaos and anarchy in Venezuela.

St. Ambrose College’s Segregated Muslim Prayer Room Is A Chilling Reality

by Rod Thomson That St. Ambrose College in Davenport, Iowa has opened a sex-segregated prayer room for Muslim students requires an explanation. On the surface, it seems totally bizarre. Why exactly do Muslims want to go to an explicitly Catholic college and why is that now-progressive Catholic college proudly violating normative standards of equal treatment […]

Two USA Today Reporters Hit DefCon One Level Political Correctness

Rod Thomson Political correctness is a disease on the body public in America, stifling open debate, conversation and the free exchange of differing viewpoints.

ACLU May Sue Florida Schools Over Bra-Less Girl Controversy

Rod Thomson The big “Bracott” bra boycott was a big dud — at least as far as student participation in the supposed civil rights violation of the Florida high school girl who had her nipples X’d out with bandages because her bra-less attire was…distracting other students in class. But the district and all Florida schools […]
