Yes, 40%. And that’s just an average. In high tax Blue states ( and especially in Democrat run big cities like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles) it’s even higher:The next time you pour yourself a cold one, give yourself a pat on the back in the name o…

Jan Brewer sells religious freedom to the highest bidder

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed Senate Bill 1062, a bill that would have  allowed businesses, such as wedding photographers and wedding cake bakers, to  assert their religious beliefs in rejecting participation in same-sex wedding events. While she claims to have lamented over how the bill “could divide Arizona in ways we cannot even imagine and no one would ever want,” her true motivation really boiled down to simple dollars and cents. This bill was never about discrimination; it was about religious freedom. Due to her pathetically weak “leadership” on the issue, Brewer allowed the the pro-homosexual lobby to turn this into an “anti-gay” discussion. A group of bipartisan law professors presented Brewer a letter that made this contention while asking her to consider the measure for what it was . . . not what it wasn’t. Brewer wasn’t alone in her vacillation. Several sponsors of the bill channeled their inner John Kerry by voting for the measure and then voting against it, along with Senator Jeff Flake—whose last name becomes more appropriate the longer he serves—and the recently censured, but still a lifetime member of the G.O.P. Hall of Shame, John McCain. Even Mitt Romney encouraged Brewer to veto the bill. And as we all know, nobody knows how to win like Mitt. But the some of […]

Losing Nakiska, but not the lessons he taught me

We have been a little out of the routine around here this week. The reason is because I’m losing my buddy, Nakiska, to a long battle with cancer. Back in October, 2013, I posted a tribute to my baby girl, Sitka, after  I had to have her euthanized due to a sudden and untimely attack from a brain tumor. The lessons I learned from having her in my life inspired me to wonder why politicians in Washington couldn’t be more like her. To say I miss her would be an understatement. Now comes this week, when I am forced to make the same decision for Sitka’s litter mate and brother, Nakiska. He possessed the same sweet spirit held by his sister, and his life has been just as impactful. One of the greatest lessons I ever learned from Nakiska happened when I nearly lost him on a hike in the Colorado mountains when he was just about one-year-old. It’s a spiritual lesson as well as a lesson for America. I had been working with Nakiska—his name is derived from the mountain where the downhill racing events took place in the 1988 Winter Olympics—on voice commands prior to this adventure together and felt pretty comfortable with the level […]
