Star Trek fans will recall the Mirror Universe, a parallel dimension where Captain Kirk and the crew of the starship Enterprise were part of an evil empire instead of the peaceful Federation. The shtick was revisited throughout the franchise and always followed the same basic premise. Everything in the Mirror Universe was precisely the opposite of our normal universe. The good guys were the bad guys. The bad guys were the good guys. Even some laws of nature were inverted.

Every time I read Robert Reich, I feel as though I have crossed over into that Mirror Universe. If I were ever feeling particularly lazy, I could craft a blog post by copying his and adjusting the language to state the opposite.

In his latest piece from The Huffington Post, Reich’s detachment from reality skirts the comical. Take a look at the analogy he comes up with for House Republicans in the wake of the budget deal.

In a period when we face a fiscal emergency and the threat of Islamist death worshipers, social issues have taken a sideline in our political discourse. To an extent, that makes sense. Our ability to deal with social issues depends first and foremost on our continued existence. Whether homosexuals can obtain a marriage license is a lesser concern than whether we can feed ourselves or keep our throats from being slit.

Even so, social issues remain a prism through which we can discern the priorities of those who would lead us. On Friday, Bill Maher offered a troubling glimpse through that prism on HBO’s Real Time.

New Rule: If you can force a woman to look at a sonogram to see what will happen if she has an abortion, you also have to let her see a crying baby, a bratty five-year-old, and a surly teenager to see what will happen if she doesn’t. And you have to tell her it costs $204,000 to raise it until it turns 18 in 2028, where it will be a slave to the Chinese in a radioactive world with no animals, fish, or plants.

Political correctness has fostered a thoughtless political discourse where arguments rest on whether someone is offended. There’s no need to determine whether a claim is right or wrong, only whether it hurts someone’s feelings.

That whole up-is-down, black-is-white thing that the Left’s got going does leave a sane person wondering if they’re all off their meds. How else to explain professional blowhard Michael Moore’s appearance on Colbert this week, where he offered up several big heapin’ helpings of crazy. Bet you didn’t realize Professor Moore was a scholar and expert on all things Founding Father-related? Or that he and Thomas Jefferson had so much in common? Check it out:

In a recent post covering a forthcoming London protest by UK Uncut dubbed the “March for the Alternative,”  NRB’s Michelle Horstman introduced us to the Robin Hood Tax. It’s pretty much what it sounds like, a proposal to seize wealth from banks and redistribute it to “fight poverty” and “tackle climate change.” UK Uncut has garnered much attention as of late for its unconventional protest tactics, which is to say its willingness to use force to disrupt lawful trade.

Obviously, the folks at UK Uncut and their allies regard themselves as modern day Merry Men. They are certainly willing to skirt the edge of the law in pursuit of their cause, a supposedly noble crusade on behalf of the downtrodden. However, it is likely that Robin Hood would not recognize these pretenders. In fact, the preponderance of evidence within the folklore suggests Robin Hood would identify more with the modern American Tea Party than any socialist.
