The New York City Uber story unmasks the reality of the Democrats: politicians beholden not to the citizens' best interests, but to their own. If your city makes it hard for Uber to do business, you have corrupt or corruptible politicians.
Until he was embarrassed by universal outrage and Tweets from Aston Kucher to Kate Upton, uber-liberal New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio nefariously tried to regulate Uber cars out of New York City. He took $550,000 in donations from the monopoly cab companies to spare them competition. He even put the head of his taxi campaign fundraising in charge of regulating taxis, which include Uber, confirming that the top priority of liberal Democrats is using their regulatory powers to serve themselves and their donors, not consumers.
De Blasio touches all the leftist bases. He married a black lesbian. She is reportedly no longer a lesbian but, suspiciously, she still drives a Subaru. They have a son who, unlike Obama's lament, actually does "look like Trayvon." De Blasio said he warned his son not to trust New York cops. But you know who he should warn his son about? Slime balls that sell drugs and kill cops. more >>

It is not because of our stand for morality and righteousness, although our hypocrisy has greatly damaged our credibility and lessened our authority.
It is not because of our claim that salvation comes through Jesus alone, although our failure to live out the radical implications of that claim has blunted the force of our message. more >>
"I fear the day when technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots." - Albert Einstein
In my study I have a giant poster of one of my heroes, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One of his famous quotes is the following: "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
Today, I believe many people are being silenced having reached a breaking point. Because of distraction with electronic gadgets, a reluctance to stay engaged on unpopular issues, plus experiencing what seems like an avalanche of negative developments in our culture, many people are disconnecting or distancing themselves from news. They're feeling disillusioned, discouraged and depressed. I personally battle these very things. more >>

In the third installment of secret videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, a former StemExpress employee reveals the gory details of her on-the-job training in the procurement and sell of aborted babies' body parts.
Holly O'Donnell, who was hired as a phlebotomist, passed out on her first day of working at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic after she was directed to pick up a baby's dismembered leg using tweezers.
