Anybody Out There?

The one question that has baffled us for millenia is: Are we alone in the universe? With more than 500 trillion suns like ours in the Milky Way Galaxy alone, more than 100 trillion galaxies and the increasing number of exoplanets in the universe, it is nearly impossible to think that there is nobody else. Hybrid Librarian takes a look at this mystery and nine others that have stupefied our greatest minds.

Beck: Keep Redskins Nickname

Glenn Beck, of The Blaze, is taking umbrage at those folks who suddenly want to rename the Washington Redskins. “The name’s been around for 80 years and now, because of Harry Reid, the guy who liked Obama, and I’m quoting, because in Harry Reid’s words, ‘a Negro dialect wasn’t part of it. He didn’t have a Negro dialect unless he wanted one.’ That guy is now the moral authority on what’s offensive and what isn’t?” But should the Redskins lose their nickname to the bureaucrats, Beck has some novel ideas on what to replace it with, such as the Washington 60,000 Alien Children Flooding Our Borders or the Washington 80 Bucks to Fill Up My Damn Gas Tank. Listen to Beck’s other suggestions in this edition of MercuryOneMemphis.

Another Obama Firestorm

Captain Destructo, aka President Obama, is at it again. Obama’s recent tradeoff of five well-known terrorists jailed at Gitmo for a captive American Army sergeant has stirred both sides of the political aisles and the American public into an absolute frenzy. And adding insult to injury, the president bypassed his obligation to alert Congress before the unilateral move. As if this wasn’t enough, rumors are circulating that American Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl deserted his platoon and collaborated with the Taliban to boot. What is going on with this administration? It seems Americans wake up to a new scandal every week. Recently, Florida Senator Marco Rubio called President Obama a monarch, an emperor. Does this emperor have no clothes?¬† Did he finally and deliberately¬† break the law? Is this an impeachable offense? There are a plethora of questions facing our Emper…err…Commander in Chief. In this edition of the “Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV, Fox News senior political analyst Ed Rollins discusses Obama’s latest faux pas with host Steve Malzberg.

 

Why Capitalism Works

Social critic and best-selling author George Gilder discusses the merits of capitalism in this edition of Prager University. Says Gilder, “Capitalism at its essence is a competition of giving. Of course self-interest is involved, but the genius of capitalism, and only capitalism, is that it channels self-interest into altruism. Entrepreneurs can only help themselves by helping others.”¬† Check out the rest of Gilder’s extraordinary insight.

 

IRS Smoking Gun Apparent

Dick Morris says Congressional investigators will be hardpressed to find that illusive e-mail from President Obama instructing the IRS to target conservative groups. But the smoking gun is all around us, Morris says. It all began, Morris says, when Obama excoriated the Supreme Court publicly on its Citizens United decision to empower conservative groups to continue pouring money in and out of the election process, sending a clear-cut message to the Democrat Party. Listen in as Morris explains.

The Real War on Women

Wild Bills says that the real war on women comes from the liberal perversion of sex. “Even though it violates every instinct of the female, liberalism browbeats and peer-pressure young girls into a permiscuous lifestyle, prostituting themselves in a desperate search for love but finding nothing but heartache,” Wild Bill says. “Man, talk about a war on women.”
