High-mileage vehicles not allowed in US

High-mileage vehicles not allowed in US

The video explains the difference in passenger car mileage between European countries and the US. I had heard from friends that travel regularly in Europe that European cars typically get higher mileage than comparable US automobiles, but I had no idea how much or why. I figured it probably had to do with government regulations and air quality demands. It’s much worse than that.

Will Boehner Blow His Bluff?

Will Boehner Blow His Bluff?

Here we go again. Speaking to the Peter G. Peterson Foundation 2012 Fiscal Summit on May 15 , House Speaker John Boehner once again called for offsetting spending cuts in return for increasing the $16.394 trillion debt ceiling later this year. This follows the failed attempt in 2011 to do precisely the same thing.

Bullying a Country

Bullying a Country

The “mainstream” media is all aghast at a childhood bullying incident of MItt Romney’s, but the real bullies in America exist primarily in government and primarily on the left. One could fill volumes recounting liberal Democrats kicking sand at the little people to gain and maintain power. Government, just by its nature, resembles a schoolyard bully, exerting its power through judicial fiat, often nullifying the will of the people, and then there are unelected bureaucrats, regulators and executive orders — some compatible with liberty, many not.

California High Speed Rail Derails Fiscal Sanity

California High Speed Rail Derails Fiscal Sanity

There is a lot a state like California could do with $3.5 million a day. At the top of the list should be telling the federal government no to an expensive and unnecessary train and instead getting its fiscal house in order. You would think Californians would want off this train before it’s even built and further derails its economy.

Investigation: Non-Citizens, Dead Citizens Voting and Fraud Acceptable in NC Elections.

Investigation: Non-Citizens, Dead Citizens Voting and Fraud Acceptable in NC Elections.

This video reveals more great work from Project Veritas. We have already seen a white guy get access to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s election ballot. Now James O’Keefe and crew show us on-camera: non-citizens being offered ballots dead people being offered ballots, voter identification being discouraged by election officials, and people admitting to voting several times in several locations. Isn’t it wonderful to have elected officials “representing” us and ensuring our elections are fair and not like those in banana republics?

Kansas Says NO To Shariah Law

Kansas Says NO To Shariah Law

Kansas lawmakers recently did what South Dakota’s “Republican” legislators were too gutless or too liberal to do: protect the citizens of their state from the Shariah law that is creeping across America…and has Europe in a paralyzing grip.

US House Defends Union Secret Ballot

US House Defends Union Secret Ballot

The U.S. House of Representatives took aim at the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) this past week by voting to prohibit the Obama-run labor board from using any funds to sue any state on the question of secret ballot elections. The House action was led by Representative Jeff Duncan (R-SC) in response to the NLRB’s litigation against the states of South Dakota and Arizona, two of four states where voters overwhelmingly approved state constitutional amendments protecting workers rights to secret ballot union elections.

American Government Could Not Have Existed Without the Bible

American Government Could Not Have Existed Without the Bible

Seward’s Folly is what Alaska was called when it was first purchased from Russia, as it was thought to be of no value. Only when it was discovered to be rich in natural resources was appreciation shown to Secretary of State William Seward, who was born MAY 16, 1801. Serving under Abraham Lincoln, William Seward was wounded by an accomplice of John Wilkes Booth the same night Lincoln was shot.
