Jimmy Kimmel’s done a bunch of these on different subjects but the gag will never get old. It’s basically a psychological experiment in serial form, and a case study in why polls can never fully be trusted. Remember that Pew survey the other day showing how, even though most young adults don’t know what issue Roe v. Wade dealt with, nearly 100 percent of them had an opinion on whether or not the decision should be overturned? If you were confused about how that result is possible, let late-night comedy be your beacon towards the truth.(Video)

No, not really. But I do think that this (and the LAST ELECTION) is all the proof that I need to ask for the requirement of passing a Civics Test before people are allowed to vote.

It´s really not that complicated. The Founding Fathers had it right the first time: only male property owners should be allowed to vote. Just think where our country would be if that were still the law.

#2 is one hundred percent correct: democracy IS a bad idea. It always has been a terrible idea. That is why the Founding Fathers soundly REJECTED democracy. They gave us a Constitutional Republic. Tragically we have lost it. We started to lose it when the statists succeeded in getting those of us who should know better to start referring to our Republic as a democracy.

Jay Leno has been interviewing only stupid people for years on his nightly TV show.
He only talks to people who don´t read, have no sense of history, are probably all on welfare, and don´t even know what December 7th means. TRUE only property owners should be allowed to vote on property issues. How could it logically be any other way ? Property owners protect property. Renters are the first to destroy property rights. Look at socialist Santa Monica and Communist New York, Brooklyn etc.
All that deteriorization in the name of a renter´s so called "rights", a Marxist invention.

#4 - I agree. Voters should be required to take a Civics Test before voting.
#5 is right about Founding Fathers and the requirements to vote. Male property owners had "skin in the game" and would be careful how they voted.

People in this day and age mainly vote on their feelings which have been manipulated by a politician´s PR people. Case in point - grandma in a wheelchair being thrown over a cliff by a Republican.

And Republicans still thing they can appeal to these knuckleheads with votes through reciting facts, offering logic and calm conversation? The Dem model is distasteful, deceitful, and it increasingly works as more and more of these fools is enticed to vote...or allow their sufferage right to be abuse by others. GOP, conservatives...get smart. Politics is just another "reality show" to the public, and we must each play a part. Get in their face!

And just think, the Democrats and some Republicans want to supercharge the electoral with mainly low information voters by eventually giving US voting rights to up to 20 million generally uneducated illegal aliens who would also gain the right to bring about another 20 million of their foreign relatives here in the years ahead. As the lady said, that urban, and is what it is all about in America these days!

This is just a sample of what our country has become over the past decades. Dims have learned that the way to victory is to promise tons of freebies to everyone, at the expense of "taxing the rich". And it´s unfortunate that at one time in American History, there actually were a small handfull of men who dominated the entire national economy. And they treated their employees almost as bad a slaves. All of that changed of course and today we can and do prevent that from happening again. But, the Dims will NEVER let the lower economic classes forget and in fact tell them it´s their RIGHT to live the good life on the backs of others. It´s really sad and I really don´t have any answers to it.

Well, in my family, we got together at a reunion a few years a go and universally decided that anytime someone calls us for a political opinion, we should lie- do a complete reversal of our true feelings. We hate the polls and do all we can to mess them up. We compare notes all the time and laugh over the outrageous things we tell the pollsters. I think it´s a good thing.

I´m also with #5. Not that women should not be allowed to vote. I know some very smart, conservative, females who are just as capable as men and some are even NRA members, but those who vote for the leader of the free world because they think an ugly, flap-eared, half-black idiot is eye candy should clearly be denied access to the voting booth.

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:55:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“Am I going to be an outcast?” A friend, who recently moved to an upscale neighborhood in Madison, Wis., called me last week to ask if she would be able to make mommy friends if she continued feeding her children — gasp! — non-organic food. She had just come back from the park where two mothers were discussing a recent vacation to a resort in Puerto Rico. One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might

White House asks American parents to

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:50:04 PM     Post Reply
In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Reflecting on Kelo nine years later
Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw    Original Article

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
