90-Year-Old Post Office Workers Still Getting Workers Comp?

-By Warner Todd Huston Years after most Americans retire, in fact years after the federal retirement age of 68, more than 100 U.S. Postal Workers in their 90s are still getting 75 percent of their salaries (tax free, yet) of federal workers compensation payments instead of having been graduated to the cheaper retirement payments at...

Disgusting: Chicago Firefighter 'Priest' Uses Fellow's Funeral For Union Speech

-By Warner Todd Huston Father Thomas Mulcrone made an ass of himself at the funeral for fallen Chicago Firefighter Edward Stringer on Tuesday, Dec. 28 by delivering some union-like hectoring of the city from the pulpit during his dead comrade’s eulogy.

Why Won't MSNBCs Ed Schultz Interview Republicans? Cuz he is 'Sick of 'Em,' of Course

-By Warner Todd Huston It’s funny how lefties always consider themselves the more “logical,” the more civilized,” and more “adult” side of the argument. Why, they just want to have an adult debate to explain how correct their ideas are, right? Well, they might unless they work for MSNBC, apparently. Especially if they’re Ed Schultz.... Read more »

Jesse Jackson Jr., Hiding From Media Over Scandals

-By Warner Todd Huston Jesse Jackson, Jr., was at one time one of those politicians that was on TV and radio as much as humanly possible. Like his father, it wasn’t a good idea for one’s personal safety to get between either Jackson and a TV camera or microphone. But since the end of 2008... Read more »
