RUSH: This is Zack in Caldwell, Idaho. Great to have you on the program. Hello, sir. CALLER: Hello. Yes. I´d just like your opinion on why is it that those who work hard and are successful are perceived as ignorant unless they go out and get this education or this higher education that they´re pushing so hard? RUSH: Well, I´m not sure I agree with the premise. Why are successful people who didn´t go to college looked down on? CALLER: Yeah, pretty much. I´m a pretty successful guy. I´ve built my own world with my own two hands here, and yet every time

RUSH: Thank you very much. You know, I fly over New Bern. Well, I used to when I would go to New York. The route was always right over New Bern, North Carolina. CALLER: I got my truck revved up to kind of help with the carbon monoxide so we can warm it up here. It´s freezing in North Carolina. RUSH: Is that right? I´m sorry. CALLER: Hey, listen.

People who answer Puffington Host polls tend to be ignorant, reports Emily Swanson, PuffHo poll director. The poll is a quiz on constitutional law: In the new survey, 45 percent of Americans said the First Amendment does not allow people to be fired from a job for expressing their views, while only 36 percent said such firings are allowed under the Constitution. Twenty percent said they weren´t sure. Moreover, 35 percent think the First Amendment does not allow a television network to suspend an on-screen personality for expressing a politically incorrect point of view, while 43 percent said such a suspension is

Small, New University Does Something
Radical -- Only Hires Professors Who
Want To Teach And Only Admits
Students Who Want To Learn

Is a college degree worth what it costs? More and more Americans are questioning the conventional wisdom that it is, as the price tag climbs while the educational value (at least for many students) falls. But just because much of our higher education system is now a poor value for students who really want to study, we shouldn’t think that worthwhile schools have disappeared. In fact, just a few years ago, a new, very small university was created — the University of Minnesota Rochester (UMR) – that does just what a college is supposed to do.

A search involving hundreds of people is under way for a Wall Street Journal reporter who has been missing since he left his New Jersey home Saturday afternoon, saying he was stepping out for a short walk. Authorities have said they don´t know what happened to David Bird, 55 years old, last seen leaving his home in the Millington section of Long Hill Township. Besides scores of volunteers, the search has employed helicopters, horses, ATVs and divers in the Passaic River. Mr. Bird, who covers energy markets for the Journal, has worked for Dow Jones for more than 20 years. He did

Assemblyman Tim Donnelly has many things he’d like the state of California to know about him as they consider making him governor: He has big balls, for one. But also that he wants to make the Golden State sexy again so Hollywood comes back, and—AND!—there should be a gun in every Californian’s safe, then something about McDonalds in North Dakota having a signing bonus, plus he has big balls, which is why he’s married to the “sexiest woman in California,” who is not María Conchita, a Cuban-born actress who provides commentary in Spanish while holding her dog Tequila, and is actually

Texans for Cornyn has a new ad out this week that just brutalizes the Obama administration’s dishonest mouthpieces. Senator Cornyn has one of the most conservative ratings in congress, and he is taking these Democratic charlatans apart in the public square. We have to hold Washington accountable, and we must never stop demanding the truth from this “most transparent” administration. This is how it’s done. Great ad.

Let’s put it this way: It’s not the kind of rhetoric you’d expect to hear from an insurgent primary candidate running to Mitch McConnell’s right. “We have way too much partisanship in Washington,” Matt Bevin told a Republican audience in Hardin County, Ky., on Monday. (Snip)He went on: “This idea of us being bomb throwers, being zealots who, ‘It’s my way or the highway’ — that’s craziness. Government is about negotiation, government is about compromise.”

Being More Than the Opposition Party

In Politico, Representative Greg Walden, the Oregon Republican who chairs the National Republican Congressional Committee, is quoted saying this: It’s incumbent upon us now, I think there’s a window opening, where we become not the opposition party, but the alternative party. Which means we have an obligation to come forward with agendas and plans for how we would govern if we were in the majority in Washington. It’s starting to open. That is, I think, precisely the right attitude for Republicans to have. In saying this, I don’t mean to imply that Republicans can’t do well, even very well, in the 2014

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who represents the City of San Francisco, showed reporters a bracelet she was wearing at her press briefing today to express her love of football. Then she got 49er Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana´s number wrong. “I’ll just put my bracelet right out there,” Pelosi said, showing the charms on her arm. “Joe Montana’s jersey number 14--well, anyway.” (Video) Montana wore number 16. Later, talking about the upcoming NFC Championship game between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers, Pelosi said: “The world of sport is a beautiful thing, it’s so much

I’ll tell you what the “smart” view of David is: He was a radical of the Left who became a radical of the Right. He was an extremist then and is an extremist now, with the same nasty and flamboyant style. Express this view, and almost every liberal and conservative head will nod: “Yup, yup, that’s how it is.” It is nonsense. No one will contradict you if you say it — but you’ll be a fool. I cherish a comment that Hendrik Hertzberg, the New Yorker writer, once made to Collier & Horowitz. He said, “You were apologists for Communism

My mother dropped a bombshell on me at a brunch in 2001. “I’m thinking of getting a refresher,” she said while lightly pulling her cheeks back with her forefingers. I was aghast. My mom, now 72, is an age-defying beauty who has always looked 10 to 15 years younger than her age. “Mom!” I yelled incredulously in the dining room of the Century Club in New York City. “What happened to ‘Black don’t crack’?” Looking me dead in the eye while resting her chin on the top of her hand, she said, “Black don’t crack, but it sags!” With that hilarious

WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says former Defense Secretary Robert Gates is out to make a buck with a book denigrating other senior officials. Reid was one target of Gates in his book, while President Barack Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also came in for criticism. Reid said he hasn’t spoken with Obama about the book. But he said he has discussed it with Biden. In the book, Gates says Obama was frustrated with policy in Afghanistan, Biden has been wrong about almost every major foreign policy issue for decades, and Clinton said

WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Thursday accused Republicans of obstructing passage of the unemployment insurance bill because they do not think he is being nice to them. Another week has come and gone and the Senate still has not managed to pass a bill to extend unemployment insurance. Now, the Senate will recess and head home for all of next week, leaving the issue unresolved. But at a press conference Friday, Reid suggested that a recess might actually help move things along. “I think it’s probably a good idea that the senators go home, the Republican senators”

Congress wants more potatoes

WASHINGTON— Nutritionists say Americans don´t need more white potatoes. Congress disagrees — again. Lawmakers are encouraging the agriculture secretary to allow low-income pregnant and nursing mothers to buy white potatoes with the vouchers they receive as part of a government program. That goes against the advice of the Institute of Medicine, which advises the government on health issues. The institute has said recipients of such aid already eat enough white potatoes. It´s not that white potatoes themselves aren´t nutritious. But they´re often used to make french fries, which are usually fried or baked in unhealthy fats and oils. Since 2009,

Let me get this straight. For five years Barack Obama has been president. For five years he’s demonstrated -- with amazing consistency -- that he has no clue what we need to get out of the ditch and back on the road to real economic recovery. He’s repeatedly demonstrated that he can’t work with a divided Congress and he can’t, or just plain won’t, lean on Harry Reid to allow the Senate to vote on the stack of jobs bills that has been sent over by the House. The president clearly has learned nothing on the job. And now our

Unions back super-PAC
supporting Republican centrists
The Hill [Washington, D.C.], by Kevin Bogardus    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/16/2014 3:14:44 PM     Post Reply
Labor unions are funneling cash to a super-PAC tied to a former lawmaker that is working to elect centrist Republicans to Congress. Unions have contributed about $765,000 so far to the Defending Main Street Super-PAC, which is associated with former GOP lawmaker Steve LaTourette (R-Ohio), according to Federal Election Commission records. The total, while small in the new big money era of campaign politics, is an unusually strong show of support from labor for a Republican venture. LaTourette was considered one of the more labor-friendly Republicans while on Capitol Hill, and those relationships are paying dividends in his new career as a lobbyist

´Not looking good´: Coal workers see

Far below the Appalachian Mountains, in a space barely big enough to stand up straight, Bobby Combs works a job his father and his grandfather worked. Coal-mining is the highest-paying job available to him in eastern Kentucky. As he skillfully maneuvers a massive machine and rips into a seam of coal, though, Combs wonders if the family tradition ends with him. "It´s not looking good," he says, dirt smudging his face. Coal has come under the crosshairs of the Obama administration in the push to transition to renewable energy sources. Coal mines are burdened with a never-ending stream of federal regulations.

Big government exacerbates
inequality, economist argues
Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 1/16/2014 2:56:17 PM     Post Reply
When liberals start talking about inequality, it´s nearly always in pursuit of more government. They take for granted that a free market makes inequality worse and Big Government programs are needed to mitigate it. This argument appears flawed in many ways. For one thing, inequality in and of itself -- as separated from the problems of poverty and immobility -- might be harmful only when that inequality is created by cronyism. Also, the Left's economic policies can exacerbate inequality as often as they can shrink it. Republican economist David Malpass makes that argument today in the Wall Street Journal:

A small group of Amazon.com Inc technicians at a distribution center in Delaware voted on Wednesday not to join a union, marking a victory for the U.S. online retailer which is strongly opposed to any kind of third-party representation for its employees. A group of equipment maintenance and repair technicians voted 21 to 6 not to join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), in results published late on Wednesday. The vote was a symbolic test of Amazon´s employee relations policies, but did not affect the vast majority of the 1,500 or so packers and shippers who work

WASHINGTON –The Justice Department is likely to expand the definition of racial profiling to bar federal agents from considering religion, national origin, gender and sexual orientation in their investigations, a person familiar with the issue said Thursday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity about the matter because a Justice Department review of the issue is ongoing. The likely expansion was first reported by The New York Times. Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon declined to comment. Civil rights groups have long complained that law enforcement agencies have singled out Muslims in counterterrorism investigations and Latinos in immigration investigations. Expanding the

New York City agreed on Wednesday to pay nearly $18 million to settle the civil rights claims of thousands of people arrested during the 2004 Republican National Convention that nominated George W. Bush for a second presidential term. New York police engaged in mass arrests of more than 1,800 protesters, bystanders, legal observers and journalists during the event. Michael Schiller, a documentary maker working for HBO, said he was caught in police netting and arrested while attempting to film protesters from a sidewalk in Lower Manhattan.

"The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, penned by Thomas Jefferson, declared religious liberty a natural right and any attempt to subvert it ‘a departure from the plan of the Holy Author of our religion, who being Lord both of body and mind, yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either.’ The statute inspired religious liberty protections in the First Amendment, which has stood for almost two and a quarter centuries.” “Today, America embraces people of all faiths and of no faith.

This morning National Journal writer Ron Fournier opened a big can of worms when he asked this question: (Tweet -How does one oppose abortion and support executions? Discuss.) It always surprises me that otherwise intelligent people seem to struggle with the difference between abortion and capital punishment. Fortunately there were a swarm of people willing to take Fournier up on his offer to discuss the difference. Here are a few examples: (Tweets) A couple of folks pointed out that the question is rarely turned around in the other direction:
