Politico: Conservatives are pro-cancer!

    Either that, or Politico hires some pretty sloppy writers.  Personally, I’m voting for the latter. The background: Politico decided to write an article that attempts to answer the eternal question, For just how long will George Soros keep throwing money down the rathole which is the Activist Left*? It’s an interesting question in its own right – the article suggests that Soros is getting pretty | Read More »

    Obama’s Numbers Down; Gas Prices Up

         In Obama’s Saturday morning radio address, he speaks of the rising price of gasoline and the effect it is having on the American consumer in particular and the economy in general.  Actually, is less an attempt at empathy with the American public than it is a realization that his popularity and his approval are plummeting as quickly as gasoline prices are rising.  Rasmussen has | Read More »

    N.J. Turnpike Tells Union Toll Collectors ‘Take It Or Leave It’

    Their choice is rather simple: Accept pay cuts or find another job. The unionized change-making cashiers toll collectors on the NJ Turnpike are considering the pay cuts this weekend. Though they have through Monday to either accept it or reject it, their union boss is recommending it. Although New Jersey will be going to a cashless toll-collection system in 2013, under their new two-year agreement, when | Read More »

    QotD, But the Grey Lady Isn’t Bitter edition.

    Nope.  Writing this sentence did not cause nigh-physical pain for its author. A group including former White House officials, union leaders and one of Hollywood’s biggest producers have joined forces to start an outside effort to help President Obama and Congressional Democrats in 2012 by using the very sort of anonymous, unlimited donations from moneyed interests that the president has so deplored. Nope. Not at | Read More »

    Yes! Winter’s over and the Silly Season is upon us!!

    Looks like the Republican Primary maybes are getting warmed up to the task. And a caveat, I don’t consider the following to be “silly” in any depreciating manner, I just enjoy the sight of politicians either defending the indefensible or admitting they screwed up. Let’s start with Defending the Indefensible. Mitt is the current undisputed champion in this category. I’m sure we’ll have people giving | Read More »

    The Business of Unfinished Business

    In a recently released white paper from the Cato Institute entitled Bankrupt: Entitlements and the Federal Budget the Executive Summary categorically states: The U.S. government is about to exceed its statutory debt limit of $14.3 trillion. But that actually underestimates the size of the fiscal time bomb that this country is facing. If one considers the unfunded liabilities of programs such as Medicare and Social | Read More »

    A Curse Reserved

    Note: The theme of this little commentary has been bouncing around in my head for quite some time without ever really coming together.  Some will say is still hasn’t…but as I worked through the Introduction and Prologue of “America Alone”(Steyn) early yesterday morning I realized that, while framed within a different and probably more appropriate context, he was hitting on things I wish I could | Read More »

    Apparently still the Stupid Party…

    It’s been an interesting year so far. We’ve got Republican Governors standing up to public employee unions and winning not just the legislative battles but the PR battles as well. Wisconsin, Indiana, New Jersey in the bag with more fights looking like wins in other states. We’ve actually got Governors who’ve figured out that unions are not their friends and will never be. And then | Read More »

    Oh, My!

    They were the words uttered by the new Princess as she surveyed the throngs of well-wishers that were assembled outside the palace gates. The networks had their lip-readers, but even those without that talent, like myself, could easily add the text to the image. It was a crowd as large, and as well-behaved, as any of the Tea Party rallies. The similarities do not end | Read More »

    We are Winning the War in Afghanistan

    Ah, what days are these, when I can post a headline like that and actually get flak from so-called conservatives and Red Staters. The thing is that I’m sure that, even on a supposedly conservative site like this one, I will get comments saying “are you kidding? the war is unwinnable.” Oh, what a fall it has been for America since the 1950s or, if | Read More »

    I’ve got an Ace up My Sleeve but it isn’t Trump.

    No one doubts that Donald Trump is in it for el numbero uno. He says that our country is in dire straits but would he be willing to use his influence to support a legitimate Republican candidate? No. Therefore he is lying when he says that he knows we have to stop Obama. The only way Trump wants to stop Obama is if he can | Read More »

    Former President Clinton: the Supremes could Smoke ObamaCare

    From the diaries by Erick Note to the universe: do you really think the Supreme Court will act like there is a severability clause in ObamaCare, when one does not exist? It’s not like the Supremes spend their dawns poring over statutes, line by line, or anything at all like that. So, President Clinton thought he might mention it. And now TIME magazine is reporting | Read More »
