ARE YOU TOO HOT FOR YOUR BOSS TO RESIST? If so, you could be out of a job. A court upheld the right of an employer to fire a woman because she was irrestible. Of course there is more to the story, and I'll talk about it today at 10.
NICE TO SEE A STORY ABOUT A HERO FOR A CHANGE This young man saved a young girl after she was kidnapped in her yard. I hope they catch the creep and put him away for a long time. But let's celebrate this young hero, shall we?
OBAMACARE STRIKES THE ECONOMY! By making restaurant workers part time instead of full time. Just like at Sonny's Barbeque according to my server there a couple of weeks ago. A company owned and operated by John Yarmuth and family.
WHO HASN'T BEEN TARGETED BY THE IRS? This rogue organization has been rotten for a long time. But the same Department of Justice who thinks it's important to continue to torment a guy in Florida who was just acquitted by a jury doesn't seem to think this abuse of power is worthy of prosecution.

HEY, DON'T CRASH ANY MORE PLANES AND THIS IS A NON ISSUE In a desperate attempt to go from incompetence to victomhood, Asiana Airlines is suing the television station who got punked so epically last week. Seriously, Asiana? I'd think you'd want to put this whole mess behind you instead of constantly reminding people one of your pilot's ripped the tail off a plane during landing.
NOW THAT GAY MARRIAGE IS COMING Should businesses be allowed to refuse service to someone if they believe gay marriage is a sin? I support gay marriage but I say yes.
SHOULD WE BE HIDING UNDER OUR DESKS? The "nuclear" option is all that talk on Capital Hill right now. Why? Because Harry Reid can't get his way he's threatening to do the thing that just 8 short years ago would've ended the world: change the rules to suit him. Read this Byron York column to find out what happened 8 years ago. And why Harry Reid is a dirty rotten jerk if he does it this time. Why have rules when they don't matter?
RAND PAUL STANDS UP TO THE PENTAGON A Democrat proposal to eliminate the chain of command in military sexual assault cases is being supported by Rand Paul. I want to share with you the comments made at my son's BILOC graduation on this very issue and hear from my service member listeners about this issue.
