The Democrats’ pass and the big government limit on moral voting.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, the topic bombshell plan to blow up the governor’s race.
Yet again, Rhode Island has been saddled with a bottom-10 ranking: This time for its heavy-handed occupational licensing regulatory regime, which effectively denies many people the right to earn a living. In Washington, the Trump administration is returning to a “light-touch” regulatory strategy, a strategy that our state would be wise to follow.
A contemplation of mortality and gratitude.
The cure for our toxic anti-male environment is to revive cultural expectations that acknowledge the tendencies of both sexes, but tempered with respect for individual differences.
The fight against communism is more difficult when we don’t know what it is we’re fighting.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, the topics were Judge Flanders’s announcement and chances, the PawSox thoughts of Attleboro, and the Raimondo-bomb of UHIP.
At its Monday meeting, the Rhode Island Board of Elections directed its lawyer to propose fixes to the loophole created in 2008, which no longer required proper identification for those registering, in person, to vote … as required by 2003 federal law. Despite baseless attacks against Ken Block, it turns out that his research was accurate.
RIDOT has identified the locations of the first two proposed toll gantry locations in southern Rhode Island. This Tuesday, they will be holding a workshop and taking public comment on their newly-released (not to say rushed out the door) Environmental Assessment of the locations. The problem is that the assessment suffers from exactly the same serious flaw as the ill-fated UHIP system: it was released before it was ready. “Continue Reading” to learn why – and for deets about attending the hearing.
Not interested in Moore; Trump the drunken wrecking ball operator; and the needle that conservatives may be able to thread to social victory.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, the topics were the Raimondo-Assumpico messaging struggle, Fung’s poll, and the Board of Elections’ admission.
Because it serves their political interest, progressives are capsizing the sexual revolution cruise ship, and if conservatives can keep our feet, we’ll find our ship is right-side-up when it’s done.
On Friday, the Center held our first inaugural fundraising banquet -the 2017 Ocean State Freedom Banquet. At the banquet, a capacity crowd of 200 people were on hand to hear the keynote address by Grover Norquist, famed DC anti-tax warrior and President of Americans for Tax Reform.
The sexist children of the General Assembly, blue states as a fleet of Titanics, Rand got God wrong, and a progressive contradiction.
Jeff Hunt puts forward evidence from five-years of experience with legalized marijuana suggesting that states should think twice before implementing or considering such policies.
Luis Vargas argues that free market and traditional principles should give the so-called DREAMers a place in a conservative immigration reform policy.
President Trump’s tax reform plan, released this week, is a winner! Our state’s partisan political class will no doubt trot out their standard, mindless, and divisive class warfare mantras, but having attended two national seminars to learn details of the President’s tax reform plan, I can assure the people of Rhode Island that this sweeping reform plan is indeed designed to mostly benefit the middle-class. It is disappointing that our state’s political leaders would choose to deny Rhode Islanders the chance to keep and make more money just because they are hung-up on an anti-jobs, tax-the-rich platform.
A politically incorrect Halloween, being honest about our differences and challenges, and a thought on tax policy.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WADK 1540 AM show, last week, the topics were Tanzi’s story, Morgan’s announcement, Regunberg’s intention, and Fung’s challenge.
The transgender issue extends far beyond bathroom or locker-room rights. As expressed in a June 2016 “guidance” document from the RI Department of Education (RIDE) on transgender rights, RIDE itself will be seeking to bully local school districts into conformity, openly flaunting its disrespect of other students and of parental rights.
A more-easy-going pedagogy at one Tiverton elementary school makes things easier for employees and takes some burden off parents, but is it good for the students?
The transgender mandate in schools is about determining truth and forcing you to believe it… or at least to lie.
In imposing transgender “guidance” on school districts, Rhode Island government proves contempt for the First Amendment.
Funny how identity politics has brought progressives back around to the role of racists; pity they haven’t learned the lessons of American classics.
Evidence that Democrat researchers modified the conclusions of their “safari” into flyover country to fit a prior conclusion is a reminder that interview-based studies are vulnerable to that temptation.
Johanna Harris is going to get information from Providence’s mayor, but the first-violation-free precedent on open records is unhealthy.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WADK 1540 AM show, last week, the topics were the Warwick sick outs, my ethics complaint, Josh Miller’s view of the Democrats, Raimondo’s remorse for hurting journalists’ feelings.
In the Ocean State, the political elites work hard to keep the average family out of the process. It appears that the Board of Elections and the Secretary of State’s office have deliberately left the door open for individuals to register to vote and cast a vote, without ever providing personally identifying information as required by state and federal law. As I have said before, the scale of these findings potentially shake the very foundation of our state’s democracy … and must be formally and independently investigated.
Everybody’s being taken in by the #MeToo trick and some thoughts on freedom of speech.
A Facebook video by “Woke Folks” explains privilege probably better than its authors intended or understand.
