HS Band Banned from Playing Hymn, Crowd Sings it Instead: Good news- thanks to the tireless efforts of U.S. District Court Judge Carlton Reeves the Brandon High School Marching Band will no longer be able to carry out their insidious plot to establish a state religion through the nefarious coordination of marching routines and instrumental music. Better news- You may use the 1st Amendment to silence a publicly funded school organization, but you may not use it to silence the people.

Ted Cruz- Birthright Citizenship “doesn’t make sense” A birthright Presidentship doesn’t make much sense either, but that hasn’t stopped Jebco from expecting one.

Bigot Ellen Page confronts Ted Cruz over his refusal to embrace her intolerance: We don’t think that went the way she thought it was going to.

CNN: Trump is the Strongman We Don’t Need. We can only assume that it isn’t strongmen that CNN objects to so much as it is straw strongmen that they happen not to like. They have certainly had few issues over the last several years with a man who has been the closest thing America has had to a strongman since FDR. A man who ignores the laws of the legislative branch, who defies the Constitution’s abolition of imperial powers, who rules by fiat and in general acts as though this country were his France of 1700 and he its Louis VIV.

Behold the Dawn of the Cake Slave: And likewise behold the rise of the uber-citizen. Citizens so empowered by the mighty virtue of where their genitals have been that the mere sub-citizen may no longer rely on 14th, 13th, 5th or 1st Amendment protections when it comes to not wanting their labor compelled/conscripted, not wanting their participation in ceremonies (they consider sacrilegious) to be mandated and not wanting their classification as cake slaves to be codified.

Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Pay Interns, Wants Companies to Pay Interns (Might Even Force Them) There HRC goes again. Assuming that her severs should be treated differently from everybody else’s.

Birmingham City Council Votes to Raise Minimum Wage: After increasing their own salaries from $15,000.00 to $50,000.00 a year members of the Birmingham City Council figured a little circus was in order. They would liked to have provided some bread as well but the anticipation of rising costs made that impossible.

Bernie Sanders Used Campaign Donations to Pay Family Members Over $150,000 That is one way to redistribute the wealth. H/T Not so silent.

Away From Caracas, Shortages Even Worse in Venezuela: Can you believe it? Somehow getting rid of all the deodorant choices didn’t result in having anything more to eat. It’s almost like socialism is just as bad at producing what people need as it is at producing what they want. Not to worry though, we’re sure when the rich white guy from Vermont tries it things will work differently.

‘Bama sorority recruitment video worse for women than Donald Trump: Lots of things are worse for women than Donald Trump. For example there is Shariah Law, 90 percent of the music videos that have ever aired on BET and saying no to the sexual advances of Bill Clinton.

Bernie Sanders promises to tackle racism as president. So Bernie Sanders thinks that a white guy from Vermont can fix a problem that the black guy from Chicago couldn’t. Clearly this man is a racist.

Hillary Clinton steals the show at Iowa Democrats meet After twenty plus years in the national spotlight we are not surprised that the MSM is celebrating HRC having “stolen” something. We look forward to similar headlines after she steals the DNC nomination and maybe even the general election. (Ed: We added the following tweet because it was too funny to not).

Could a ‘President Bernie Sanders’ deliver? Deliver? What a bourgeoisie sentiment suggesting a mindset intent on being served. In the great socialism there is no being served, there is only serving. Now back to the mines. Premier Sanders must have his salt!

Hillary Clinton Pokes Fun at Email Scandal During Wing Ding Dinner in Iowa

“You may have seen that I recently launched a Snapchat account,” she said at the Iowa Democratic Party’s Wing Ding Dinner. “I love it. I love it. Those messages disappear all by themselves.”

Unfortunately for Hillary this story is going to be harder to kill than Ron Brown.

Sanders verses Greenspan is not as Interesting as Greenspan verses Greenspan: You may have seen it recently. A meme purporting to show that Bernie Sanders called out the Alan Greenspan and predicted the Great Recession some five years before it happened. To Sanders supporters this is an amazing thing, however from the rest of us it illicits a giant “meh”. Lots of people predicted the housing bubble crash and did so decades before the scheme was begun. From Mises to Hayek and even Greenspan in 1966 and 1977. In fact if Greenspan had acted a little more like the free marketers that had once been his mentors and a little less like a Bernie Sanders the whole thing might have been avoided.

Low Oil Prices Pose Threat to Texas Fracking Bonanza: Or maybe the fracking boom is responsible for the low oil prices. Either way we expect the benefit to the consumer to be short lived. It can’t be much longer until the government finds a way in which this brief respite in the exploitation of the consumer can be mitigated.

PANIC-Stocks, yields tumble after China pushes yuan lower again. Is the great wallet of China closing? Are they trying to re-inflate their production bubble by pumping up (and out) exports? Will this blow the artificially high prices of American stocks and pop our own Wall-Street/QE bubble? Who knows, but sooner or later we’ll all gonna get served a steaming plate of the poo poo platter and we can all cry in our nest-egg drop soup as we realize that our little slips of paper aren’t worth much even if they did come in a cookie called fortune.
