Video: Small Businesswoman tells Obama to “Apologize!”

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

(Hat tip: Weasel Zippers) It needed to be said. I’m not so sure she’s correct about this Administration not having a “plan”, however. Cloward-Piven, for example.

Potomac Math

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Compromise is an American politician’s preferred method of calculating. The hard science of math has no room for emotion in its results. 1 + 1 always equals 2. It is a provable scientific fact. It is also too rigid and limiting for a politician. Therefore math must also be compromised. Like principles, there is no [...]

The Wisdom of Checks and Balances

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

The Founding Fathers were not perfect. Slavery was wrong. Women’s suffrage was wrong. Dividing the Federal government into three separate branches with checks and balances on each other, and limiting their authority to those powers specifically enumerated within The Constitution was pure brilliance. The bi-cameral congress was an act of providence. I bring this up [...]

The Cruel Joke that is the Boehner Plan

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

Well, now that the GOP House has screwed the pooch and passed the Boehner debt ceiling increase bill, it’s worth reading Andy McCarthy’s Against the Boehner Plan to see what we got. To Thomas Sowell, the Boehner plan seems commendable because it would not only “spare the country a major economic disruption” but also “spare [...]

Obama is No Lincoln

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

This wonderful Michael Ramirez cartoon fits nicely with this small excerpt from Francisco’s Money Speech in Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”: “Do you wish to know whether that day is coming? Watch money. Money is the barometer of a society’s virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when [...]

Obama Channels Marx

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Was Obama off the prompter at his speech this morning? He let slip his belief and affection for Karl Marx’s classic quote: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”: The American Thinker blog has the story: Video of Obama’s Marxist moment. * * * UPDATE: Fred Thompson weighs in on [...]

Civility

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

Just a small accounting on that new age of civility. Herman Cain Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. The Republicans are taking away my baby food! Nancy Pelosi: Republicans put women and children last. This will be an easy list to expand. Stay tuned. UPDATES: 17 February 2011: Hosni + Hitler = Scott Walker.

Constitutionalism

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Don’t miss Charles Krauthammer’s article in today’s National Review, Constitutionalism: Americans are in the midst of a great national debate over the power, scope, and reach of the government established by that document. The debate was sparked by the current administration’s bold push for government expansion — a massive fiscal stimulus, Obamacare, financial regulation, and [...]

The Obama Icon

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Here’s a well-done video on the power and danger of iconography and how the Democrats are so entrenched in the O-brand that it now is used in place of the Presidential Seal of the United States. Of course, this kind of propaganda is only possible when facilitated by a State-run media complex.

A Sleeping Giant

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” At the dramatic conclusion of Tora! Tora! Tora!, a reflective Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto delivers this summation of the successful attack on Pearl Harbor. As it turns out, it’s likely not an actual quotation of Yamamoto’s. [...]
