NYT: That's weird, our new poll shows people really seem to like the GOP tax overhaul
They knew this would happen.  They desperately wanted to derail the Republican tax bill because, behind closed doors, they were always terrified it would turn out to be as popular as it is. “They” are the Democrats and their slavish media allies, and “they” have been having a tough go of it lately.

5 million Americans have more than $50,000 in student loan debt—most pay none of it back in first 4

5 million Americans have more than $50,000 in student loan debt, and most pay none of it back in the first four years
What makes this even worse is that, in 2010, Obama shoved the banks aside and forbid anyone but the Department of Education from making government-guaranteed student loans. Worse in the sense that, while banks aren’t as much on the hook from the inevitable defaults, the taxpayers are.

Behold history’s worst Olympic halfpipe run. ...Also, oddly, one of history’s best

Meet Elizabeth Swaney
Meet Elizabeth Swaney.  She’s a thoroughly average skier, probably no better than anyone you could find at your average, regional, Mount Trashmore.  Unlike your average skier, she just competed in the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in women’s ski halfpipe.

Thanks to her ability to read the rules, she figured out a way to qualify while having little actual ability.

A Great View, But Will it Kill You?
What is the greatest threat to having a heart attack, the nation’s number one killer? Ask this question and most people will answer it’s having high blood cholesterol. Or they respond, it’s due to hypertension, obesity, diabetes, or a stressful lifestyle.

A Gas Tax Hike Is the Wrong Way to Fund Highways

A Gas Tax Hike Is the Wrong Way to Fund Highways
Various reports suggest that policymakers—including President Trump himself—are considering raising the federal gas tax, by as much as 25 cents per gallon. Supporters argue that a hike is necessary to replenish the Highway Trust Fund, and—for those concerned about climate change—some also argue that a higher gas tax is needed to encourage drivers to switch to electric vehicles or mass transit.

Words, Laws, and Attitudes Are To Be Feared More than Guns

Words, Laws, and Attitudes Are To Be Feared More than Guns
There are many ways to commit mass murder, with explosives, fires, chemical weapons, biological weapons, hijackings, trucks, knives, and so on. But far more dangerous than guns and other physical weapons are words, laws, and attitudes.

Dem Senator warns Mueller not to release his final report before the 2018 midterms

Dem Senator warns Mueller not to release his final report before the 2018 midterms - because they want the non-issue kept alive
If the Democrats - oh, sorry, I mean “the totally unbiased and ideologically pure Robert Mueller” really had the goods on Trump colluding with Russians, they’d want you to know about.  It would do nothing but serve their 2018 narrative to have that information available to the public.  They’d put it in their ads, mention it on every TV broadcast, and use it as the central plank in their midterm platform.  “Elect us, and we’ll impeach the Russian conspirator.”

Curtailing Mass Murder

Curtailing Mass Murder
Once again we are faced with another tragic school shooting and once again many people beat their drums for gun control. Yet, is gun control the solution to our nation’s recent epidemic of mass shootings? Asked in this way, the answer is obviously yes, because other than firearms, there is nearly no other object that people use to lethally “shoot” another person. But such a question is equivalent to, “Have you stopped beating your spouse?”

Presidents’ Day 2018 Message We All Need To Hear

Presidents' Day 2018 Message We All Need To Hear
Mr. President:

In a few words you should come out and state that it was Hillary, Obama, Soros, and their fake-media cronies that colluded with the Russians in a concerted attempt to keep you out of the Oval office, and that these same scoundrels in their fury have INVENTED the “Trump Russian collusion” myth, hoping to attain the same end.

New Dem hot take: Russian election ‘meddling’ is just like Pearl Harbor!

New Dem hot take: Russian election 'meddling' is just like Pearl Harbor, Insanity and collusion.
Years ago, it was widely suspected that Dem-friendly media personalities were coordinating their narrative across multiple networks, shows, and publications. They swore they weren’t, claiming that they were just doing the Lord’s work by delivering honest, hard-hitting journalism. Conservatives didn’t by that line. It simply seemed too weird that, suddenly, they’d all start saying the same things, at the same time, on the same day.

John Kasich still thinks he’s a 2020 thing, demands more gun control - ban the ‘god-darned Ar-15’

John Kasich still thinks he's a 2020 thing, so he demands more gun control - ban the 'god-darned Ar-15!'
Last week we heard the rumblings. John Kasich, the Governor who won’t go away, the man whose father was a mailman, was thinking about the many ways in which he could easily become President in 2020. Last year, he was ruling it out but now, thanks to what he calls dysfunction in the Trump White House, Kasich’s language has softened. It’s possible, however ridiculous, that he might be planning to primary Trump as a Republican, or abandon the party and run as an independent.

Idaho defies ObamaCare by permitting noncompliant plans…Trump Administration has to stop them
I’ll admit to you that when I first read about this, I was cheering Idaho on. It seemed both heroically defiant and strategically shrewd. The federal government should not be telling states how to fashion their health care laws, and the manner in which ObamaCare does so is foolish to an extreme.

To call out Behar, and by extension ABC, for an attack on faith as tantamount to mental illness is so obviously needed that it’s more like a box-check than any example of real courage. Even so, Pence is decidedly firm and unapologetic in laying out his case, and he needed to be:

The Palestinian Refugees: Facts, Figures, and Significance

The Palestinian Refugees: Facts, Figures, and Significance
The Palestinian refugee issue has been seen for some seventy years as a principal obstacle to a resolution of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. However, the expanding numbers of refugees from the Middle East and Africa today challenge the uniqueness of the Palestinian situation. In fact, the issue of Palestinian refugees is perceived more as the reflection of an ongoing lapse by Arab countries, Israel, and the international community, which have been unable to separate the solution to this problem from the greater political arrangement between Israel and the Palestinians.
