Obamanomics: Unemployment 7.9%
Even though the rate ticked up, 157,000 jobs were added. BUT 169,000 people gave up looking for work and left the job force.

But, fortunately for Obama, those people are not counted in the unemployment figure…if they were the unemployment rate would be 14.4%. STORY

Last night on TheBlaze TV, Glenn conducted a riveting conversation on the latest progressive idea — lifting the ban on women in combat. On the outside this seems like a feel-good story, but like any leftist idea, it’s riddled with problems. Check out the conversation HERE.
Armed guard stops middle school shooter, media silent
Glenn recounted a recent story from his own life where guns were banned from a local event he attended. There was a large “no guns” sign, making the site more of a target than a safe zone, in Glenn’s opinion. Are schools and other events safer with these signs or with armed citizens and guards?
