Michelle Malkin Reports On Big Brother Monitoring And Selling Student Data

One of the common themes running through Thinking Right are the frightening parallels between today’s society and George Orwell’s 1984.  This last election showed all of America just how good the Obama Administration has become at generating and using personal information to their own ends as they created one of the most focused and succesful…

United States Economy Headed For Meltdown

  Within the next six months the United States economy will suffer what economists call a “reset” and I call “meltdown.”  I really debated writing this piece because I have very little empirical evidence to support this conclusion and I urge you NOT to use my advice to alter your investment strategies.  However, during 2000…

The Venezuelan strongman died of cancer on Tuesday. As the CNN story notes, he left a deeply divided, economically fragile country behind.

  Marie Antoinette brought on the French Revolution by telling the starving masses “let them eat cake.”  Michelle Obama left 6,500 public school children stranded hungry and thirsty for hours waiting to be the latest pieces of window dressing for the FIRST LADY (I put that in all caps because she really thinks she deserves…

Nuclear Iran, North Korea A Threat To Earth

Having grown up during the height of the cold war, I still remember the very real concern that the world might end in a flash.  While my children have never known that fear, events of the past few years may bring back that low-grade background fear experienced during the 60′s and 70′s.  Two of the…

Censorship By The Politically Correct (Pt. 3) – Climate Change/Global Warming

Headlining the news last week was the startling revelation that 64% of climate change scientists now believe that man has little or nothing to do with either climate change or global warming.  Missed it?  Not surprising in that the scientific, peer-reviewed survey was reported by Forbes and no other major news outlet.  Given the previously…

Watch Democratic Congressman Have On Air Melt-Down

Even I find Sean Hannity a little over the top sometime, but he had an interchange that led to a complete melt-down by Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota.  Evidently used to the pandering, myopic and supportive press, Mr. Ellison virtually foamed at the mouth by a montage put together by Fox that simply contrasted two speeches given by…
