Holding a human rights fundraiser in Saudi Arabia is a bit like holding a PETA fundraiser at an Outback Steakhouse, or a bible convention in Vegas (WARNING: Vegas link NSFW). But that is exactly what Human Rights Watch did a couple of weeks ago. Noah Pollak’s opinion piece in today’s WSJ takes HRW to...

By
July 30, 2009

President Obama’s progressive socialized medicine scheme will create a horrifyingly cold and draconian federal agency tasked with rating the dollar value of your life, and worthiness for treatment.

Chicago Mayor Daley backs “preferential treatment in city contracting to businesses owned by gays and lesbians.” Wow.
