Fear of sunlight and guns is leading Democrats to turn nocturnal.

Bats, mice, skunks and other nocturnal creatures are most active between sunset and sunrise. Nocturnal creatures do not “choose” to avoid sunlight anymore than fish “choose” to avoid dry land; it is instinctual, healthy and normal for nocturnal creatures to work in the dark. Humans, in contrast, are by nature not nocturnal in either a literal or a metaphorical sense.

Secret stories of soldiers stabbing their fellow soldiers in the back read like crime thrillers. Our bravest soldiers and veterans are increasingly the victims of abuse by other soldiers with more political clout.

President Obama boasts of his ability to “evolve” on gay marriage. He has also evolved on other issues, such as his level of respect for the military. That is, if regression is a form of evolution.

Halloween is four days before the midterms. Get out the vote with a costume that expresses your inner politico. Here are five fun political costume ideas that will spark a debate at your Halloween party—and remind your friends to vote for freedom.
1.) Naughty Czar

The CDC’s lack of transparency and competency in managing Ebola makes the classic “naughty nurse” costume off-limits. It seems thoughtless to dramatize the health care professions while an American nurse and doctor exert every effort to heal from Ebola. It is far more tactful—and provocative—to be a naughty czar.

Two lawyers fight Ebola in the U.S. while our troops are forced to combat Ebola in West Africa. Americans may contract Ebola but rest assured: no one will sue the federal government.

Your president, a former constitutional law professor, is violating our brave troops’ natural rights in the name of political correctness. Bypassing Congress, Obama has ordered up to 4,000 troops to fight Ebola in West Africa and has named lawyer Ron Klain “Ebola Czar.”

Janet Yellen is no masseuse. Nor is she a pecuniary zeus. Her economic policies sting like grapefruit juice and sound as silly as Dr. Seuss.

My name is Uncle Sam. Uncle-Sam-I-am. I do not like quantitative easing. I call it greenbacks and ham.

California Governor Jerry Brown cares about college women. Which is why he is patronizing them.

It is vital that college women—who now face an epidemic of sexual assault on American universities—have access to defensive tools. Millennial women like Dartmouth College student Taylor Woolrich are specifically asking for concealed firearms to deter violent stalkers. But evidently it is more important for male politicians to boost their fragile egos by talking down to women than to humble themselves by listening to women.

To a nunnery, go, and quickly too. Farewell, Joe Biden.

Our Democratic Vice President is a self-proclaimed Catholic. Yet unlike former President John F. Kennedy, also a Catholic Democrat, Joseph R. Biden consistently exploits his political power to control his church. JFK respected the separation of church and state. JRB embraces blurred lines.

Bang! Lee looked up from addressing a package while she waited in line for service at the post office. Despite a lobby packed with customers—without notice—a postal worker slammed down the service window gate and went to lunch, leaving Lee and the other patrons to fend for themselves.

The U.S. Postal Service excels at treating customers poorly. My friend Lee’s story is but one of many nightmares of churlish postal workers and deficient USPS customer service. Many government workers get away with behavior that would get them fired if they worked at a private company like McDonald’s or Apple.

It’s harvest time! But oil shipments out of the Bakken are causing dangerous and costly rail delays for farmers.

The oil boom in the Northern Plains is a boon to the U.S. economy, creating thousands of jobs and increasing our supply of American energy. With nearly 3 million Americans out of work, the Bakken is like a pool of cool water in an arid desert.
