In another example of how leftist dogma is undermining America, the Department of Justice is forcing New York City to hire, and pay damages to, unqualified firefighters — all in the name of equality.
Obama's activities at this past weekend's "Gay Pride" parades in cities such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, prove again that the Democrats are no longer the party of the common man. They are now the party of the uncommon man.
This year the nefarious goings-on included an invasion by hordes of Barack Obama campaign staffers, who zealously plied the fertile recruiting grounds that are the parades. In fact, writes the New York Times, “The parades could have been confused for Obama campaign rallies. In Chicago on Sunday, 300 of his campaign staff members and volunteers marched down Halsted Street through the heart of the gay district to chants of ‘Four more years! Four more years!’"
Many unthinkingly subscribe to the notion that polling-place quantity means political quality at election time. But low turnout isn’t to be lamented; it’s to be applauded. After all, if someone doesn’t have the get-up-and-go to get out and vote without being prodded, it’s a given that he doesn’t possess the greater initiative necessary to inform himself on the issues. In this case, he shouldn’t be voting in the first place.
Thus should we never encourage the apathetic to cast ballots, for disinterest correlates with incompetence.

Don't be fooled by Bill Clinton's candor about Mitt Romney and Bain Capital. There's something that always comes first in the Clintons' universe, and it's not the country.

Can the government prohibit you from giving diet advice to family and friends? If the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition is to be believed, the answer is yes.
Michelle Obama claims that poor people can't eat a healthful diet because their neighborhoods are "underserved" by free enterprise. But this is a myth — and one she wants to fight with your tax money.
After the North Carolina vote upholding marriage, the Left claimed that the state was on the wrong side of history. But what is the Left really on the side of? Could it just be on the left side of a losing battle?
George Washington once said, “Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion." But what do studies of the behavior of religious and secular people really show? Which group witnesses better for its world view?
