The Lesser of Two Evils

Watch this video. It depicts a bunch of George Washington University students signing a petition advocating the deportation of American citizens in exchange for illegal, undocumented aliens. I’m not kidding. Many of these students appear to fancy themselves as informed and intelligent and they actually think this is a good idea. Scary.

In case you forgot, President Obama extended deportation protection to nearly five million illegal immigrants when he executed a sweeping executive order on November 20 of last year. It might surprise you to learn I actually support a protocol that allows for employed,  law abiding (except, of course, for that ongoing violation of our immigration laws) illegal immigrants, currently residing in the U.S., to remain in this country and eventually attain citizenship. However, I don’t support deporting American citizens to make room for them. BECAUSE I AM NOT AN IDIOT.

What Christmas is All About

Christmas is NOT just another ordinary day.

Luke 2: 8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them and they were so afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Product Review: Oz Naturals

Women apply facial care products to their skin daily – cleansers, toners, moisturizers, wrinkle reducers, skin toners and eye creams – and each of these contains multiple ingredients, many of which have been proven to be harmful when absorbed into the body. That’s why, when the makers of Oz Naturals invited me to test some of their “natural” skin care products, I was reluctant. In my experience, even the brands that claim to be organic or all-natural are often rife with harsh, unsafe chemicals which have been linked to various health issues including allergic reactions, infections and even some cancers. My impulse was to decline the invitation, but after doing a little research, I found Oz Naturals is a company that stands by its claims: Oz Naturals really are all-natural.

Open Letter to Jonathan Gruber on Milton Friedman

Dear Dr. Gruber,

If you can spare 12 or 13 minutes, I encourage you to watch the following videos clips of noted economist, Dr. Milton Friedman. You might learn something, plus I’m sure you will find them a welcome respite from the plethora of embarrassing videos of yourself floating about cyberspace lately.

Unlike yours, but like most other prominent economists’, Milton Friedman’s name is not a common household moniker. Do you know of him? I imagine you do, being an economics professor at MIT and all.

Shake It Off…Georgia Tech Style

As if there aren’t already enough reasons to LOVE  the smartest public university in the country, here’s one more for you…

Shake It Off Georgia Tech was produced by GTWreckless. It’s a yellow-jackets-inspired lyrical adaptation of Taylor Swift’s mega-hit featuring Georgia Tech senior Maggie Bridges (a.k.a Miss Georgia 2014) and the Georgia Tech all-male a cappella group, SympVibes.

From the YouTube video description:

Georgia Tech students are criticized a lot by non-Georgia Tech students and themselves. We are told that we don’t know how to have fun, we study too much, or we’re just simply a bunch of nerds. Who cares what people say? As Georgia Tech students, we are going to make a difference in this world; And yes, we are nerds. Don’t change who you are to conform to what other people want from you. Remember who you are because you are awesome. Just shake it off Georgia Tech.

Net Neutrality? Really?

The first time I heard the phrase “net neutrality” was in this Daily Caller article: Comcast, Time-Warner Tank After Obama Announces Net Neutrality Support. Normally “net neutrality” would sound like nails on a chalkboard to me. It’s a little too PC for my taste, but I confess when I first read that net neutrality means reclassifying ISPs as utilities, I thought it actually could be a good thing for broadband customers because…

Remember this?

 

Haven’t we all had similar experiences with our ISPs? Seriously, does anybody like Comcast? Or AT&T? Or Time-Warner? I know I don’t and, products and services aside, it always makes me wonder how these companies manage to stay in business with such egregious report cards when it comes to customer service.

Keep Away from Wackadoodles

Have you seen this? It’s a one minute and 57 second video produced by Hollaback! a non-profit organization dedicated to stomping out traumatic “street harassment” committed against women. ISIS is running around beheading people and the U.S. currently has the largest number of Ebola cases in the world outside of West Africa and terrorists are entering our country via the unsecured Mexican border, but apparently what keeps the folks over at Hollaback! awake a night is the impending threat presented by guys whistling at cute girls. Scary, I know.
