Any Ink is Better Than no Ink

Monday, August 15th, 2011

As I said in yesterday’s post, Ron Paul: The Man Most Feared by Washington, D.C., Congressmen Paul has the establishment on the run. Today, Roger Simon, the liberal Chief Political Columnist of Politico, gave a little press to Ron Paul, backhanded as it was. Ron Paul remains media poison Paul’s name was not mentioned in this [...]

Ron Paul: The Man Most Feared by Washington, D.C.

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Yesterday’s Iowa GOP straw poll in Ames was won by Representative Michele Bachmann. The Iowa native won by 152 votes. Who finished in second? Was it Rick Perry? Tim Pawlenty? Mitt Romney? You really wouldn’t know by the “Main Stream Media’s” response, and apparently the phone hacking scandal across the pond has skewed Fox News [...]

Where the “abolition of want” leads

Saturday, August 13th, 2011

Today’s must read piece is The New Britannia by Mark Steyn. This is the logical dead end of the Nanny State. When William Beveridge laid out his blueprint for the British welfare regime in 1942, his goal was the “abolition of want” to be accomplished by “co-operation between the State and the individual.” In attempting [...]

Civility — Democrat-Style, Last Week.

Michelle Malkin SMACKS DOWN Newsweek.

Monday, August 8th, 2011

You go Michelle! Michelle Malkin smacks down Newsweek for the cover photo of Michele Bachmann while exposing, through many examples, the addiction the MSM has to altering the photos of conservatives and Republicans. What a cheap, cowardly thing to do, but we are talking about liberals. Sigh. Seriously, Tina Brown? Yes, I’m talking about you, [...]

Judge Judy — “This is what we’re creating.” Know what I’m sayin’?

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Judge Judy reveals a young, college student for the moocher he really is. “That’s what we’re creating…him.” We’re experiencing an embedding problem with this video. Use this link.

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.

Al Gore loses it

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Ahhhh…this is precious. Al Gore Really Lets the BS Fly: “When you go and talk to any audience about climate, you hear them washing back at you the same crap over and over and over again,” he continued. “There’s no longer a shared reality on an issue like climate even though the very existence of [...]

Thank you, Jonah Goldberg

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

To Hell with You People: Finally, president Obama, our national-healer, gives a speech. It was a good speech. Indeed it was one of the first speeches in a long while that got anything like bipartisan support. Civility. New tone. No more martial metaphors. These were the takeaways. So flashforward to this week. Tom Friedman — [...]

Compromisers Only, Principled Pols Not Allowed

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

The so called grand compromise over the debt-ceiling was little more than window dressing. The real heavy lifting of deficit reduction, a task the congress is Constitutionally charged with, was “delegated” to a new, so called, super congress or super committee. This star chamber is to be made up of 12 members of congress. The [...]

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 [...]

A Debt Deal Without $4T in Cuts is a Double Whammy

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Yesterday I wrote of the consequences we face if the debt-ceiling is raised and if President Obama chooses to default. The reality is even worse. The compromise being sought by establishment Republicans, The Senate, and the president will ultimately lead to both higher inflation AND higher interest rates. A crushing double whammy on the US economy. The “limited magnitude” [...]

Go Marco, Go!

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

Today on the Senate floor, Marco Rubio gave an incredible speech on the raising the debt ceiling debacle. He also did a rare thing — yield some of his time so John Kerry could interject some comments and questions to Rubio during his speech. I think you’ll like Rubio’s responses to Kerry’s questions. It’s good [...]

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 [...]

Another Blow to Global Warming Alarmism

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

The facts just keep piling up against the Global Warming alarmists, but don’t wait on the EPA to let facts get in the way of their anti-fossil-fuels agenda.
