Why Doesn’t AARP Put Any of Its Windfall Profits into Its Charitable Activities?

Yesterday, I noted that AARP’s main ‘business’ is renting its name to insurance companies selling policies to senior citizens. It’s a robust business that has grown rapidly over the last few years. In 2002, AARP collected around $240 million renting its name. By 2009, that figure had almost tripled to $657 million a year. (Nice […] Read more CompleteWhy Doesn’t AARP Put Any of Its Windfall Profits into Its Charitable Activities? … Read entire article »

Senator Reid, Let’s Compare Radicals Shall We?

Senator Reid, Let’s Compare Radicals Shall We?

Senator Reid is calling Tea Partiers “radicals.” The feminine pitch of Senator Reid’s voice not withstanding, in the context of the heavily documented death threats and vandalism recently committed by Progressive Democrat radicals in Wisconsin, calling Tea Partiers radical betrays his apparently giant set of testicles. Now that Senator Reid has foolishly raised this issue, let’s compare […] Read more Complete Senator Reid, Let’s Compare Radicals Shall We? … Read entire article »

Pentagon spends $600,000 on a frog statue?

Is this really worth $600,000? Maybe. Is it really worth $600,000 in taxpayer money? I really don’t think so. According to US News & World Report, the Pentagon is spending $600k on a gurgling toad fountain sculpture that features a 10-foot fairy on its back to greet workers at its new $700 million Mark Center facility in Alexandria, Va. Decried as wasteful spending that will be seen by just a couple thousand of daily workers who arrive on bus shuttles, foes have tried to delay the decision, expected tomorrow, April 1. But in an E-mail, an Army Corps of Engineers official said that the decision can’t be held up because it would impact completion of the huge project. The City of Alexandria just announced that there are four works … Read entire article »

Elephant Killed. Starving Town Eats. PETA Complains.

Bob Parsons — the CEO of the internet hosting firm GoDaddy.com — recently returned from a trip to Zimbabwe where his vacation videos captured a hunt for an elephant plaguing a small village on the verge of starvation. The night-time hunt was successful, preventing the elephants from further ruining dwindling crops. Further, the meat from the one elephant killed fed a significant portion of the villager who furiously worked to harvest every scrap of meat: But as we’ve reported, a number of animal rights activists are hollering about animal cruelty. PETA has honored Parsons with its first-ever “scummiest CEO of the year award.” You deserve the award for your egregious disregard for the life of the elephant you shot and killed for your personal enjoyment. Such behavior only shows … Read entire article »
