I (Photo Credit: Getty Images) Office Depot might have some competition. The federal government must be pretty concerned about all your aches and pains, since they kindly just handed $300,000 in taxpayer dollars to Rutgers University to research and develop a more comfortable office chair...while also somehow improving gender diversity.

  So much for tolerance. Pro-life flyers posted around American University by the College Republicans Wednesday were up for a grand total of about two hours before being torn down by an anonymous pro-abortion group.

(Photo Credit: Getty Images) An “imaginary hobgoblin” – that’s what economics and finance professor Mark Perry called the so-called rise in income inequality in an article published yesterday for the American Enterprise Institute. In other words, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the notion that the rich keep getting richer while the unwashed masses scramble for far fewer coins…

(An unborn baby at 20 weeks/Photo Credit: WebMD) In yet another round of congressional Ping-Pong Tuesday, Senate Democrats successfully filibustered a federal ban on abortions after 20 weeks, blocking the bill in a 54-42 vote that failed to garner the 60-vote majority it needed to advance.

(Photo Credit: David Hogsholt/Getty Images) The federal government is spending $437,739 in taxpayer dollars for psychology students at Kalamazoo College to study whether getting drunk and sleeping around will increase a person’s chances of getting HIV.

A Vietnamese woman got caught at the Washington-Dulles airport while traveling with 20 live seahorses in her luggage Monday, preventing U.S. citizens from being overrun by illegal alien ocean life, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) boasted …

(Photo Credit: Associated Press) The latest numbers from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are in, proving our borders are secure by explaining that about 9,800 children and family units were caught crossing the U.S. border per day in August. Broken down by category, CBP data shows 149 illegal alien children (UACs) were caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border per day in August for a…
