Interesting article by Tim Urban explains why young people, college age and a little older, are unhappy. It’s because they are (a) wildly ambitious, (b) delusional, and (c) taunted.
There is a lot of truth in the article, but some of it is just the normal process of growing up. We all have to manage our expectations.

This ain’t on any of the wire services. I got it from the very top; you saw it here first. Republicans have picked up a whopping 14 seats in the Tennessee House of Representatives. Only a couple of weeks ago, a member of the Tennessee House told me they “might pick up as many as 4.” Wow. Current score is 64-34-1.
Republicans also picked up one seat in the Tennessee Senate to improve their advantage to 20-13.
Republicans in this State have earned the trust of our citizens by moving forward with a common-sense conservative agenda over the last several years: holding the line on spending, balancing the budget, just saying “no” to a state income tax, protecting the Second Amendment, moving an Amendment that will overturn a Supreme Court decision that prevents common-sense pro-life legislation, etc. This is an example for Republicans all over the country.
Excellent column by J. Matt Barber, Liberty Counsel Director of Cultural Affairs.
The study [reported in Reuters] exposed the jaw-dropping fact that one-in-five “gay” and “bisexual” men in American cities have been infected with HIV/Aids. Needless to say, this scandalous revelation completely blows out of the water, the left’s morally relative, propagandist line that homosexuality is “normal, natural and good.”
… far too many Christians have contributed to the dilemma by failing to speak truth, in love, on the issue of homosexuality … Nobody likes to be unfairly labeled a hater, “homophobe” or bigot, but fear of such attacks offers no justification for failing to speak truth in love …
As 145 soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan walked through the double doors in Terminal D at DFW Airport last week for two weeks of R&R, they were greeted not only by their families, but by President George Bush and his wife Laura.

The Tennessee Conservative Union has released their ratings for Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, Congressman Zach Wamp and Mayor Bill Haslam. Candidates are rated on these factors: income tax (Tennessee doesn’t have one and doesn’t want one), Second Amendment, administrative experience, social issues (including pro-life), spending, and taxes.

Heard this on the radio the other day. Anybody else remember this one?
Anna Cooper, 6-yr-old daughter of CBR staffer Don Cooper, was attacked by a wild dog last week, just outside her California home. Anna was rescued by her mother Jennifer and her 14-yr-old brother Stephen and is going to be fine. After getting the children inside the house, Jennifer shot the dog in the chest. Don’t mess with this woman. Media coverage:
- Woman shoots dog
- The dog dies
- I shot the dog (story)
- I shot the dog (video)
- TV story and video
- 911 call
Just one more reason why the Founders gave us the Second Amendment. Who knows how many children the dog would have attacked or even killed before he could be caught again?
