“Here’s your drink, darling,” the bartender said with a smile. He seemed upbeat as he made drinks and greeted customers. “Do you like your job?” I asked him. “I hate it,” he confessed. “Honestly, I hate my job.”

I keep running into young people who put on a show of being happy with their lives but, when probed a bit, quickly concede that their smiles mask trials. A few days ago, I met a young woman who told me she works as a hairdresser at two different salons while seeking work in her desired field. The next day, I met a young man who volunteers and bartends while searching for full-time work that utilizes his college degree.

Former Marine and anonymous street artist “Sabo” uses paint and provocative posters to compel Americans to think outside the box of political correctness.

Sabo is not a “kid-friendly” artist. His art incorporates the middle finger, a topless Wendy Davis “Barbie” doll, and Nancy Pelosi twerking in latex lingerie. But Sabo uses incendiary language and images solely to get Americans to think about hard issues rather than sweeping them away with political correctness.

Dr. Alieta Eck, you’re a Wonder Woman. All of Congress is waiting for you!

Iraq. Benghazi. Lois Lerner’s emails. It seems the entire world is erupting into deception and chaos. We need a woman who can save us. Not Kathleen Sebelius. Not Lois Lerner. Not Hillary Clinton. We need Dr. Alieta Eck.

Fracking.

There’s hope for the future. My generation of Millennials is embracing entrepreneurial oil jobs to keep America’s lights on.

On June 2, the Obama administration proposed new carbon regulations calling for a 30 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030. Why 2030? Who knows! It’s an arbitrary date, not a number based on sound science.

Pepper spray, police and cardboard signs failed to prevent the June 5 Seattle Pacific University shooting. Let’s stop mass violence on college campuses by defending college students’ right to carry firearms on campus.

Tragically, this is the third column this year that I must write defending college students’ natural right to self-defense on campus. In the Seattle Pacific University shooting, four more American youths took unnecessary bullets in a gun free zone.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel loves to control Chicagoans, so he hates the truth about guns.

To address Chicago’s high crime rate, Emanuel debuted a plan before the City Council last week that is guaranteed to fail to prevent crimes committed with guns and succeed at rendering law-abiding citizens defenseless.

74-year-old Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid suffers from dementia. He’s spent half a century in politics. You may feel for him, but it’s time for him to retire.

Reid has a growing tendency to forget basic facts. If this is due to dementia, he should leave public office because it is not fair to those of us who are paying him to work efficiently. However if he does not have dementia, then he is simply dishonest.

Eric Holder

Eric Holder gets a thrill out of villainy. He’s the DOJ’s original bad boy.

Holder appears to be a bit confused about his job description. Instead of behaving like the U.S. Attorney General, he’s displaying the maturity of a 17-year-old and the cunning of a mobster.

Would you like to see a documentary about women and babies, or my selfies with squirrels?

We’ve all heard the critical news that Instagram may ban pop star Rihanna if she posts topless photos. We heard about a teen who attempted to take a selfie with a squirrel. We heard that James Franco kissed Lindsay Lohan and “it was lame.”

Self-described journalists who give us the juicy scoop on Rih Rih, Lo Lo and Franco, have buried the story of America’s biggest serial killer, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, and the testimonials of women who have had abortions. It’s time for a breath of fresh air.

Chelsea Clinton is pregnant. Which means the odds of Hillary Clinton running for president have dropped down to 99%. Why bother with baby showers when you can be chilling with a hip grandfather like John McCain?

Bill Clinton told ABC News last September that his wife is more interested in being a “grandmother” than President of the United States. Apparently, Slick Willie was wrong. Instead of fretting over colors for the baby’s room, Hillary is flitting around the country to promote her brand and getting chummy with McNasty (McCain’s actual high school nickname).
