Israel and the Fight to Defend Civilization

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

(Hat tip: Andy McCarthy) Writing in The Spectator, Melanie Phillips has this excellent take-down of Ed Husain who, as Phillips points out, “has shown that in the great battle to defend civilisation against barbarism he is on the wrong side.” Specifically, Husain has accused Israel of massacring innocent Palestinians, of “cold, politically timed killings”, and […]

Blagojevich and Operation “Black Shield”

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

Folks, it’s going to be a long four (or, God help us eight) years because this kind of affirmative-action/race-based, politically-correct BULLSHIT is going to get awfully tiring. If you thought a black President was magically going to “heal” the “racial divide” then you are delusional and perhaps psychotic. We’ve forgotten just how damned crazy Democrats […]

There’s Viagra Amongst the Poppies

Friday, December 26th, 2008

(Hat tip: Andy McCarthy) Our operatives in Afghanistan and other countries have to be creative with bribes and are using 21’st century enticements to get information on our enemies. From the Washington Post, Little Blue Pills Among the Ways CIA Wins Friends in Afghanistan: The Afghan chieftain looked older than his 60-odd years, and his […]

The Global Warming Con Game

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

Don’t miss Walter Williams’ Townhall column, Global Warming Rope-a-Dope. Williams first lists politicians and journalists who have intimidated scientists for years by calling them “immoral” for questioning the shoddy science behind anthropogenic global warming (AGW). Next, Williams reviews the statements of 650 actual scientists who recently publicly dissented AGW claims. Here’s what a few of […]

UAW Flips-Off Taxpayers

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

Is there anyone in the country so naive as to actually think that the UAW Goonions would concede any wages or benefits in order to save the auto companies they are bankrupting? Are you kidding! Michelle has the latest: The nation’s automakers are preparing to ask for wage and benefits concessions from their workers in […]

California Shrugged

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

California Scheming: What One-Party Rule Is Doing To Once-Golden State: California’s $41.8 billion budget deficit expected over the next two years is a record. No other state even comes close. But despite what the state’s politicians say, it’s not because of the recent economic downturn. It’s because of them. … Such business mainstays as Intel, […]

Liberal Compassion is an Oxymoron

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

(Hat tip: GPBurdell) This columnist for the New York Times nails it: liberals are personally stingy. In his article, Bleeding Heart Tightwads, Nicholas D. Kristof concludes what we’ve said for years: liberals are only compassionate with other people’s money. This holiday season is a time to examine who’s been naughty and who’s been nice, but […]

The Global Joke

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

Global warming is now entering the laughingstock phase. Read Hell Freezes Over: On Friday, the Las Vegas Sun reported that eight inches of snow had hit the Las Vegas Valley. The 3.6 inches that had already fallen as of late Wednesday near McCarran Airport added up to the most snow recorded for the area in […]

“Climate Change” Insanity

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

Larrey Anderson has a great article on the “unabashed nonsense” that is anthropogenic global warming. Enjoy. Climate Crisis = Logic Crisis: The original “climate change” hypothesis was that the planet was getting colder and that it would continue getting colder. That was a very simple hypothesis and was easily proven or refuted. Planet keeps getting […]

The United Typewriter Manufacturers Bailout

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

Mark Steyn has an wonderfully-depressing article on the “bailout” of the Old Three dinosaurs. We thought liberals were all about “change”. Really? Then why is this plot more like Jurassic Park — reviving long-dead dinosaurs who are now going to devour us? GM is defunct, and stuffing it full of paper so that it appears […]

Screw You, GM, Chrysler, and the UAW

Time to Boycott GM and Chrysler

Friday, December 19th, 2008

Lame duck President Bush has decided to waste $17.4 BILLION dollars of our hard-earned tax money to bailout the corrupt Union-controlled dinosaurs GM and Chrysler. Pissing away good money for failed companies. Our founders are rolling in their graves. Here’s our response: We pledge that we will NEVER, ever buy another product produced by GM […]

“The Onion” Couldn’t Write This.

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

(HT: Michelle) Wow. We always knew that “compassionate Conservative” was a code-phrase for “not-so-fiscally-Conservative”, but apparently President Bush felt the need to spell it out in case there was anyone remaining who didn’t know. Some legacy. “Bush says sacrificed free-market principles to save economy”: WASHINGTON (AFP) — US President George W. Bush said in an […]

The “Big 3” Boycott Pledge

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

Well, despite the protestations of the people not to “bailout” the Big 3 automakers, the overwhelming opposition to throwing good money after bad, and the fact that using TARP money for this “bailout” is simply illegal, it’s looking like lame duck President Bush is going to ignore the citizens of this country and bail out […]

UAW Baggage

Monday, December 15th, 2008

Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Ramirez has figured out the problem with the “Little 3” automakers hemorrhaging in Michigan.

The Devil is Coming for Chavez

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

Hugo Chavez — the Socialist dictator holding Venezuela hostage — is about to learn the hard way that Socialism never lasts. Check out this article from Investor’s Business Daily, Chavez Steps Into ‘Devil’s Excrement’: But even on a price roller coaster, oil companies survive by investing in new production when prices are high, and subsidizing […]

We need a “Freedom from Responsibility Act”

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

(Hat tip: Boortz) Shocking, just shocking. Homeowners re-defaulting after getting aid: Recent data suggests that many borrowers who received help with mortgage modifications earlier this year tended to re-default on their payments, a top U.S. banking regulator said on Monday. “The results, I confess, were somewhat surprising, and not in a good way,” said John […]

Good News in Iraq

Friday, December 5th, 2008

You know things must be going really well for America in Iraq since the MSM is virtually silent on the topic. However, Charles Krauthammer has an important update: Iraq Under the Radar: The barbarism in Mumbai and the economic crisis at home have largely overshadowed an otherwise singular event: the ratification of military and strategic […]

Big 3 Parasites

Friday, December 5th, 2008

“Those who do not remember the past are doomed to repeat it”. — George Santayana Henry Payne, writing at Planet Gore, has dug up a Time magazine article from 1979 on the Chrysler bailout. Read this and ask yourself if it sounds familiar. After weeks of rising pressure for a federal fix for the multiplying […]

Compulsory “Community Service” is Liberal Facism

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

One of the biggest problems with liberals is that they are enemies of freedom, but in their profound ignorance, they mistakenly think that they are defenders of freedom. One great example of liberal enslavement is Obama’s promise to expand “mandatory community service.” Besides being a form of slavery, “mandatory volunteerism” is an oxymoron — a […]
