Why Legal Pot Went Down in Ohio

The off-off-year elections have yielded some noteworthy results - Chris Christie's Jersey legislature has gotten bluer, Kentucky has gotten considerably redder - but election night's most fascinating tally was posted in Ohio, where voters refused to rebrand their state as Ohigho.

Robot Cars: The Return of the Sunday Driver

Perceptive conservatives have long been suspicious of 'mass transit' because of the term's Karl Marxian connotations. For the left that's a selling point because wedging the masses into mass transit allows 'experts' to decide where we will work and where we will live. The only roadblock, so to speak, is the automobile.

Now Republicans are Debating Their Debates

Two years ago, after the GOP had lost the popular vote for the fifth time in six presidential elections, the Republican National Committee autopsied the corpse and proposed a long list of cures. This sane suggestion appeared on page 76:

The Royals Parade: A report from the front lines

The Royals had their victory parade on Tuesday. If you know nothing about this event, you: A. never found the most obscure cable channel ever created, Fox Sports 1; B. traded your AM radio for a weather radio, which is amazing at warning about hurricanes and tornadoes but nothing else; or C. you just returned from a trip to the International Space Station and have some catching up to do.

Click to ‘Like’ Ben Carson

Facebook is a little bit like "Lord of the Flies," without the exotic island locale. It's a place where people can gang up on you in a virtual lynch mob if you stray from the communal orthodoxy, and they use the "like" button as rope. You have two choices: be shamed into submission or slink away on a life raft.

What's the Beef?

The World Health Organization is the United Nations' public-health arm. I think we should change its name to the World Killjoy Organization - at least where its position on meat eating is concerned.

Who Wouldn't Want This Job?

It's like a train wreck. Fascinating, repellant, and loud, all at the same time. Talking about the American presidential sweepstakes. And, as ratings for the last few debates seem to indicate, very hard to look away. It was Winston Churchill who called our election process, "a circus wrapped in a game show covered in poisonous weasel glitter." And if he didn't, he should have.

How Many Betrayals Before the GOP Base Revolts

If the Democrat establishment operated like the Republican establishment, the most important advantage Hillary Clinton gains from avoiding a shotgun primary with Joe Biden is the ability to start flip-flopping early in an attempt to attract Republicans.

A New Planned Parenthood Committee!

Fresh from their triumphant deep dive into Benghazi, House Republicans have announced Friday they've created another Special committee, this time to - of course - Planned Parenthood. I kid you not!
