Manly Men

The Wall Street Journal recently noted a study that observed that women who are more financially secure and live in safe locations tend not to seek manly men as mates.    This is entirely consistent with my contention that people who support the post-masculine, metrosexual approach to life fail to notice they are standing on [...]

Did the Dems Screw Up on the Healthcare Bill?

I heard an interesting interview this morning with PA Attorney General Tom Corbett.  He discussed something called a Severability Clause.  Apparently severability clauses are typically included in legislation to allow one part of a bill to be thrown out in court without impacting the rest of the legislation.  In other words without a severability clause [...]
