The Left Wing is Totally Useless

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

William F. Buckley, Jr., R.I.P. “There is an inverse relationship between reliance on the state and self-reliance.” “Idealism is fine, but as it approaches reality, the costs become prohibitive.” “I would like to electrocute everyone who uses the word “fair” in connection with income tax policies.” “The academic community has in it the biggest concentration […]

Global Cooling and “Climate Change”

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

Man made global warming is, of course, a hoax. It is an attempt to scare people with Chicken-Little tactics into allowing bureaucrats to control all industrial and personal energy usage and to facilitate global income redistribution. It’s a socialist’s dream, but it’s not working. Even co-opting the phrase “Climate Change” won’t work in the long […]

Berkeley anti-Marine Moonbats

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

“The actual recruiters–we’re not prepared to apologize to them. We don’t want them here.” That anti-Marines quote is courtesy of leftist, Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates. He and the Berkeley City Council continue their unrepentant disdain for our Marines and recruiters. Fortunately, Move America Forward is fighting back with this ad:

Will the Last Brit Out Turn Off the Lights

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Here’s how you kill a country: “Prof David Coleman, of St John’s, Oxford, said the brain drain was ‘to do with quality of life, laws and bureaucracy, tax and all the rest of it.’” Sinclair’s Musings notes this story on the great British brain-drain: “There are now 3.247 million British-born people living abroad, of whom […]

Here’s the video. Very cool.

Michelle Obama — Loose Cannon of Honesty

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008

“For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.” — Michelle Obama Michelle Malkin has the video and this great observation, I believe it was Michael Kinsley who quipped that a gaffe […]

Biofuels Deemed a Greenhouse Threat

Monday, February 11th, 2008

“Biofuels Deemed a Greenhouse Threat” is the title of this New York Times piece in which “environmentalists” (official, certified, State-sanctioned environmentalists whose opinions matter to MSM outfits like the NYT) admit what many of us have said for years: biofuels, such as ethanol, are a scam. Almost all biofuels used today cause more greenhouse gas […]

European Impotent Union

Monday, February 11th, 2008

The always interesting Victor Davis Hanson notes a “terrible irony” in the military impotence of the European Union: There has been a recent series of disturbing op-eds and press conferences concerning European participation (or lack thereof) in the NATO mission in Afghanistan — the common theme being either an unwillingness or inability of our continental […]

Muslim Polygamy Welfare

Monday, February 11th, 2008

Andy McCarthy alerts us to a story from Canadian News: Hundreds of GTA (“greater Toronto area”) Muslim men in polygamous marriages — some with a harem of wives — are receiving welfare and social benefits for each of their spouses, thanks to the city and province, Muslim leaders say.

Hi-jacking the Republican Party.

“Progressives” = Fascist Nannies

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

We told you it was going to be a Nanny State kind of day around here. There’s more. Writing in the Christian Science Monitor, Jonah Goldberg has a great piece on the history of the “Progressive movement” entitled You want a more ‘progressive’ America? Careful what you wish for. You really need to read this. […]

Fueling the Nanny State

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

Despite the media focus on Super Tuesday, it looks like a Nanny State/Libtopia day around here. We previously wrote on how government indoctrination has produced generations of Nanny Statists. Stanley Kurtz elaborates on this huge problem: Here’s how Mark’s correspondent describes one of the factors threatening to “sink conservativism for at least a couple of […]

Nanny State to the Rescue

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

If you spend any time talking to young people under 30 who have attended government schools, it quickly becomes apparent that many of them have been indoctrinated that the role of the Federal government is to “manage” people. They have no concept that the government was instituted to secure individual freedoms and liberty; rather, they […]
