Meet Mom & Dad, the Libido Extinguishers

Displaying that tone of pretentious concern that it's made famous, the New York Times writes that as of 2014 the U.S. birthrate has declined for the sixth consecutive year. One would think the Times, of all papers, would be overjoyed by this development, since the decline means a reduction in number of little carbon producers in the future.

A Republican Sweet Sixteen... Plus One

Get to high ground everybody. Our nation is in danger of being inundated by a candidate tsunami of 17 Republicans. The Sweet Sixteen and Never Been Kissed Plus One. Seventeen Shades of Grey. If they used a designated pitcher they could split up into two teams and play softball against each other. No hardball allowed.

No Room for ‘Trophy’ Hunting

Minnesota dentist Walter J. Palmer has dominated the news after killing Cecil, a beloved 13-year-old Zimbabwe lion. Local celebrity Cecil was lured out of a protected national park with meat drug on a truck, shot with an arrow (but not killed) and then tracked for 40 hours before he was shot dead by a rifle. This is "trophy hunting." Cecil then was skinned and beheaded, with his remains abandoned at the park border. Evidence indicates those involved in this horror marathon also tried to destroy Cecil's tracking collar to cover their tracks.

Obama's Unilateral Surrender Foreign Policy

It's not always necessary for a nation to wave the white flag for its enemies to know it has surrendered. Sometimes a leak from an administration official will do just fine without requiring all the logistics of a formal surrender ceremony.

The War Against Planned Parenthood

Whenever the Republicans target Planned Parenthood, I always remember what Jon Kyl said in the spring of 2011. Because the GOP senator's lie - and a spokesman's defense of that lie - nicely illustrates the party's eternally hostile attitude.

More the Merrier

I've got to congratulate Donald Trump for how fast he's become more annoying to the Republican Party than a mouse in an air conditioning unit. He's like that popcorn husk that gets stuck in the back of your molars and you can't pry it out with a cord of toothpicks. He's almost as grating as the Kars for Kids commercial.
