West Virginia Democrats embrace a welfare coal billionaire

Jim Justice for all?

Now that after 80 years of being in the minority Republicans have taken the West Virginia Legislature, Democrats are bringing in the big gun: 6-foot-6 coal billionaire and casino owner Jim Justice. This comes even as Democrats try "coal baron" Republican Don Blankenship in federal court under U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin of the well-connected Democratic family of lawyers.

Trump discovers No Labels is generic liberalism

UPDATE: She was a plant.

ORIGINAL POST: The No Labels people are an anti-Tea Party group. I would like to see them protest #BlackLivesMatter or Occupy Wall Street or one of the many, many violent prone lefty groups. No Labels is generic liberalism. On Monday, Donald Trump discovered that when he addressed a gathering of the generic liberals in New Hampshire.

How L.L. Bean became a shoe

His was a brilliant idea.

Walking out of the woods in wet boots, Leon Bean -- everyone called him L.L. -- came up with a rough idea for dry boots, which would be rubber on the bottom and leather on the top part by stitching leather tops to rubber workingmen's shoes. Everyone thought it was a great idea. He obtained the list of out-of-state hunters with licenses in Maine and mailed out letters advertising his Maine Hunting Shoe. His pitch was to the point: "You cannot expect success hunting deer or moose if your feet are not properly dressed."

He offered a money back guarantee and quickly sold 100 pairs -- and promptly had 90 returned. The rubber and the leather easily parted.

His was an epic failure. But L.L. Bean would rise to the occasion and prevail.

Tweet of the day

Arizona, California, Massachusetts, and New York ban nunchucks because they are run by people who are stupid.

IPCC's global warming alarmists flunk math

An Australian electrical engineer re-checked the math of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The agency, which is calling for trillions of dollars to be spent changing everything, is overstating the Earth's projected rise in temperatures by a factor of 10.

Now, supporting the police is racist

From the network that brought you "Dragnet," "Adam-12," and a host of other cop shows comes one of the ugliest, most anti-American, vile, and anti-police statements ever: That protesting the killing of cops is racist.


Francis Bellamy, the man who inoculated children against radicalism

On October 12, 1892, the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus, children in schools across America recited for the first time, "The Pledge of Allegiance."

Since then, liberals have done everything they could to stop children from pledging allegiance to our flag -- and to the Republic for which it stands. They have mocked it. They have ridiculed its adherents. They have misrepresented it. They have angrily tried to ban it.

That is because the Pledge of Allegiance is a threat to their anti-American, racist, atheistic, hateful, and ugly doctrine of nihilism and communism, which they have tried repeatedly to foist upon this great land. It is the final six words that they fear the most: "With Liberty and Justice for All."

Over the years, liberals have tried to co-opt its author as one of them. But Francis Julius Bellamy actually wrote the Pledge as an inoculation against those who would undermine America by instilling in our children a spirit of patriotism and loyalty to America.

Also, it was a way to sell flags. You do not get much more capitalist than that.
