The #LafferCurve Doesn’t Work Like That!!
Oh man. I really do not like Megan McArdle. Weasels like her and Ezra Klein are only just now sounding the alarm on ObamaCare after it is starting to really fall apart. But I really did not come here to talk about ObamaCare. I was reading Megan McArdle’s article about Keynesianism, where she just mows it down like a freight train: I find it interesting | Read More »
#OpenLetter From @BigGator5 To @Redskins Owner #DanielSnyder: Change The Name…
I don’t know Daniel Snyder’s email address, so I am making this an open letter: I am going to go against the grain and agree with President Obama. Change the name… President Barack Obama says that if he owned the Washington Redskins, he would “think about changing” the team name, wading into the controversy over a football nickname that many people deem offensive to Native | Read More »
#UncleCharlie (aka @charliecristfl): @FLGovScott Is Laser Focused On #Jobs Creation
If you live in Florida, you know that Charlie Crist is thinking about running for Florida Governor again. This time, as a Democrat. On a plateform of …voter suppression? Charlie Crist has signaled for months that voter suppression by Florida Republican leaders in 2012 will be a key line of attack against Rick Scott should Crist run for governor as a Democrat. Of course, he | Read More »
Why #Amoral #Libertaranism Should Be Rejected
Dan McLaughlin thinks Republicans should become Democrat Lite by, you guess it, be ok with legalizing pot: I still say one winning move for 2016 GOP nominee is to push for repeal of federal pot laws. Can get to Hillary's left. — Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) July 26, 2013 To go to Hillary’s left, mind you. It’s not about making a clear-cut difference between the two | Read More »
Both @FLGovScott And @AGPamBondi Needs To Be Held Accountable For #ZimmermanTrial Debacle
Governor Rick Scott denies he appointed special prosecutor Angela Corey just to bring charges against Zimmerman. But if that was the case, why did he And Pam Bondi fire Norman Wolfinger and appoint Angela Corey? Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi today worked together to appoint Angela B. Corey (of the 4th Judicial Circuit) as the newly Assigned State Attorney in the investigation | Read More »
The Obama Admin Has Become An Embarrassment To America
The whole world is pointing at us and laughing, and I can’t say that I blame them. Basicly, Hong Kong said no to a Edward Snowden extradition and then he flew away to Russia. Follow link to Jazz Shaw’s full account. I am without words. I take that back, I have a few words. More than the 140 character limit would allow. I am EMBARRASSED | Read More »

I’m #ProLife And Support The #DeathPenalty. Why Do You Ask?
Last night, after the Gosnell verdit, I had an intellectual debate with myself to see if being Pro-Life and supporting the Death Penalty can be cabatiable with each other. I normally do this when the debate about both seem to come up. Not often in the same debate, but I think Gosnell case is a reason to call attention to how a lot of conservatives | Read More »
No #Stenographer At #Benghazi #ARB Interviews??
Something jumped out at me while watching the hiring yesterday. I don’t know if other people picked up on this point, but I think it very important. When Representative Tim Walberg (R-MI07) was asking his questions*, Gregory Hicks said something that should be front page news: Gregory Hicks To @RepWalberg: “No #Stenographer At #Benghazi #ARB Interviews” #tcot #p2 #libya #michigan #mi07 #gwot — BigGator5 (@BigGator5) | Read More »

Karl Rove: End Policy Of Korean Reunification
Karl Rove said something on Fox News Sunday that caught my attention. And no, it wasn’t his remarks about Sarah Palin. I am so over “High School Level Drama Bombs” at my age. No, he said something on a foreign policy matter. One that rung true to me for some reason. He thought we should end our policy of Korean Reunification. He noted that this | Read More »
You Are No Longer A Neoconservative Moe
I honestly don’t like the term neoconservative, because it used to applied to liberals who agreed with Ronald Reagan in the ’80s and is now used by liberals to described compassionate-conservative, super-hawks. But whatever, let’s say the term is correctly used right now (which I will NOT conced). By your own omission, you have actually shifted from being a neoconservative to conservative. Let me explain: | Read More »
Three days late, but I hope well worth it. Not makeing excuses, but we had major shifts in the weather over the weekend, and the start of this week, and it completely killed me. So, I present my answer to my own Thought Experiment: Aratrum Republic Now remember, this is for a small island nation of about 400K. So it does have a strong central | Read More »
Make Your Own Nation
I am so sick of our federal government, I began to think to myself: If I was given total control, how would I start a nation-state? I have been thinking about this a lot actually. Then I begin to think to myself, what would other people think of doing? So, how would organized your nation-state? To help jump-start you, I have for you a map | Read More »
To #TeamLetItBurn: Our Work Is Not Finish
First, a little primer on Let It Burn: [L]et us lay out some key principles of Let It Burn: 1- America isn’t a conservative country anymore and hasn’t been for a while. The fact is, a conservative country doesn’t “accidentally” elect Barack Obama twice. It doesn’t continue to send Democrats to the Senate who voted for ObamaCare and force the GOP to run as the | Read More »
President @BarackObama: #Egypt May Or May Not Be An Ally
And yet they accused Mitt Romney from shooting from the hip: Asked if he considered the current Egyptian government an ally of the United States, President Obama Wednesday balked. “You know, I don’t think that we would consider them an ally but we don’t consider them an enemy,” he said in an interview with Telemundo. I find the quibbling over “not an ally, but not | Read More »
Endorsing: None Of The Above
I can’t take it anymore. I am endorsing nobody at this point. Everyone is either clinically insane or an incompetent presidential candidate. I’m going to list them in order of likelyness of me whole-heartly supporting in the general, to the one I will refuse to vote for in the general (and you already know who that person is). Let me tell you why I can’t | Read More »
Romney Double Downs On RomneyCare
(Via Ace Of Spades) Tone-Deaf, completely and hopelessly tone-deaf: Requiring people to have health insurance is “conservative,” GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney told MSNBC on Wednesday, but only if states do it.
Village Revolt In… China?
(H/T The Other McCain) It turns out the Wukan Revolution is now well underway: For the first time on record, the Chinese Communist party has lost all control, with the population of 20,000 in this southern fishing village now in open revolt.
(UPDATE) Glenn Beck’s Reckless Race Card Comment May Re-Elect Obama
Update: This post is not about Newt Gingrich. This post is about Glenn Beck calling Tea Party supporters of Newt Gingrich, racists, because there is no difference between Obama and Gingrich. While there can be an honest debate if Gingrich is a progressive Republican, there is a clear choice between Obama and Gingrich. Calling those Tea Party people racists who believe that Gingrich is the | Read More »
