Chicago teeters on the edge of financial oblivion

Sure, I could write that headline about any number of cities, and you could say Detroit is doing a lot more than just "teetering on the edge of oblivion."  But it's going to be a huge deal when Chicago goes down... and I think "when" is the appropriate word to use, not "if."  The lovely state surrounding Chicago isn't in very good shape either, and the nation surrounding that isn't exactly rolling in dough.

Obama's fake followers strongly approve of his performance

I've long been a student of a phenomenon I call "manufactured credibility," in which the Internet makes it easy to fake popularity and approval for everything from books and consumer products to politicians.  One of my early writings on the subject was inspired by the saga of a guy who made good money running a business that supplied planted reviews to sites like  You paid a fee to his fairly large and sophisticated operation, and his people would flood the big consumer websites with highly convincing, authentic-sounding positive reviews for your book.

The joys of training your imported replacement

The immigration debate is mostly driven by the crisis of massive illegal immigration, which has been deliberately conflated with legal immigration by activists, to the extent that we're not even supposed to refer to them as "illegal aliens" any more.  When people protest efforts to allow illegals across the border and give them amnesty, you can bet they'll be described as "anti-immigration" by the media, even though they haven't said a word about legal immigration.

The Hunt for the Ever-Elusive Tea Party Killer Leads to... Occupy Wall Street

Liberals were so excited when news broke of a husband-and-wife team of psychopaths killing two police officers and a heroic armed civilian who confronted them in Las Vegas... and threw a "Don't Tread On Me" Gadsden flag over one of their victims.  At last!  At long, long last!  The elusive Tea Party killer had finally arrived!

Mike Spann's daughter reacts to Obama setting the mastermind of his murder free

Johnny Micheal Spann's daughter Alison was nine years old when he was murdered by rioting Taliban prisoners in Afghanistan in 2001, making him the first American to die in the war.  13 years later, she got to watch Barack Obama set the mastermind of her father's killing free.  The scumbag in question, Mullah Mohammed Fazi, is considered one of the most dangerous members of Obama's Taliban Five, a war criminal and mass murderer even before the Americans ever got to Afghanistan.  He was the Taliban's defense minister, and he turned out to be worth only one-fifth of a deserter in the deal struck by Barack Obama, Master Negotiator.

Somewhere out there, right this minute, Bill Murray is making somebody laugh

As we confront a day full of horrible news, it's a relief to know that somewhere out there, Bill Murray is making people laugh.  He seems to have largely foregone doing this through movies, and is now embarked on a quest to corner everyone in the world, one at a time, and pull some kind of gag on them.
