    This Thanksgiving, Let’s All Remember: Doesn’t America REALLY Suck? I mean, C’mon!

    Yep, we conservatives… What a bunch of losers. What a bunch of knuckle-dragging rubes. Hayseeds, really. I mean, really. We’re all going forward now, thank goodness. Who but a bunch of cro-magnons would want to drag us back? America is a racist, homophobic, misogynistic, paternalistic  police state– and only the election of Barack Obama has saved us from this horrific, nightmarish path. Look at Paul | Read More »

    The Last Line of Defense against Obamacare: A Little Civil Disobedience…

    I am a small business owner. My brother and I started our little company in 1993. At first, it was just him, and later that year, I joined in. That first year, our total revenue was around $56,000. Man, it’s hard to imagine… Much happened in the intervening 20 years, much that could fill entire posts of their own. What took us an entire year | Read More »

    “The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers….” (Or, Newt for Speaker!)

    The Speaker of the House of Representatives doesn’t have to be an elected Member of the House. It can be anybody. Mitt Romney, in all likelihood, is casting about for something to do– but, after his masterful performance in rounding up votes, I hardly think he’s the right guy for the job. I have a couple of suggestions, and I’m not kidding. First of all, | Read More »

    Conservatism is still Loved. The Republican Brand is Distrusted…

    Noodling around the internet tonight, I came across some enlightening information quarried from the sacred Exit Polls: Evidently, a significant number of previously self-identified “independents” as poll respondents were formerly “Republican”. This fact skewed the number of the Republican-leaning actually being polled, and improperly inflated the “republican” response (–remember all the hooey about Romney “winning” independents by such-and-such a number?). This caused certain quarters to | Read More »


    For all these many years –years in which I’ve had a political cognizance– there always lurked an off-hand comment: “Things are fine now, but, someday the recipient class will outnumber the productive class– and there will be no turning back.” Last night was that “someday”. It is useless to speculate about the myriad “why’s?”: Romney was too this, Obama too that. Obama had more field | Read More »

    There Must Be 50 Reasons to Leave Your Leader…

    Think Joe Sestak, Jack BP Oil Spill, Bill No Time for Tupelo, Mo 57 States, Nate Stimulus, Gus Camden Police, Niece… Fast ‘N Furious Guns, Hon… Ignoring DOMA, Wilma… Rogue EPA, Ray… Elana Kagan, Nagin… Appointments to the NLRB, Lee… Ignoring Nashville, Will…. Foreign Campaign Cash, Dash… War Powers Act, Mack.. No New Jobs, Bob… $4-Dollar Gas, Lass… Bailouts for Cars, Lars Marriage for Gays, | Read More »

    An Election Pre Post-Mortum

    Marco Rubio. Ted Cruz. Bobby Jindahl. Jim DeMint. Susanah Martinez. Rand Paul. Sarah Palin. Mike Pence. Rick Santorum. Nikki Haley. Bob McDonnell. David Vitter. Alan West… The strength, the passion, the intellectual rigor, the very life, in our political body-politic is all on the right. Specifically, the conservative right. When Barack Obama loses next Tuesday –and he will– the Modern Democrat Party will resemble nothing | Read More »

    Can We Get Real for a Second? Doesn’t Gloria Allred Kinda “Fit” Her Name?

    And, isn’t she everything you detest (and I mean detest) about the Modern Democrat Party? Camera hog…  loud…  obnoxious… full of self-puffery…. Ambulance chaser, defense bar. Mole. Self-loathing Jewess (-being half-Jewish myself, I know ’em when I see ’em) Agitator for imaginary grievances. C’mon, Gloria: How’s that representation for Sharon (Sounds Like) Bialek going, eh? I’ll bet you’re fighting that one all the way to | Read More »

    Debbie Stabenow: Hall Monitor (An Emblematic Tale of A Modern Democrat)

    Who the heck is this guy? I’ll get to him in a moment. In the meantime, keep his visage under the microscope of your brain: The angry scowl, the fleshy countenance, the greasy long hair. He is the Modern Democrat Party. Literally. He is also the Democrat Party of 45 years ago. And he is a lifelong friend of Debbie Stabenow. Now, I don’t believe | Read More »

    My Wistful Dreams of RedState…

    Ah, yes, I remember when… My mouse would wander over to the RedState icon on my favorites bar, and I would click… Heartlander would have an incredibly moving story about the unspoken and devastating effects of abortion, and the diary would have fifty-some “Recommenders”, and a comment thread that would wind on and on. The thread would feature a flame-war between aesthete and Tbone that | Read More »
