A tale of two first ladies:

The Washington Post reports rather cheekily that Ann LePage, the wife of the Republican governor of Maine, has used family connections to secure a job.  She is waiting tables during Maine’s tourist-rich summer on the coast at an establishment where her daughter previously worked!  Her husband’s salary is only $70,000, the lowest of any state chief executive in the country.  Maine’s first lady is hoping to buy a car.

Quite a contrast to another first lady some time back, whose governor husband’s salary in Arkansas was also low by national standards.  First Lady of Arkansas Hillary Clinton invested $1,000 in cattle futures, which turned into $6,300 overnight and nearly $100K over ten months.

Due Process in the Age of Obama's IRS

...if citizens are prevented from exercising a constitutional right, whether by legislation or, as often the case with this president, executive fiat, by having their names placed on a secret government list, is it remotely unreasonable to expect that political motivations (and to the left, politics motivates everything!) will result in various conservatives and libertarians being placed on that list?

What Does 'Getting Weapons of War Off Our Streets' Really Mean?

Repeating words spoken by President Obama two years ago, Hillary Clinton stated, "I believe weapons of war have no place on our streets," referencing the AR-15 and presumably other semi-automatic rifles labeled "assault weapons" by Democrats.  The court media is also doing its part, expressing the sentiment word for word.
