    Keep Sandy Adams, dump John Mica

    Sandy Adams may have the most unlikely back-story for a conservative Republican Congresswoman ever. That is, if you believe the media bias about single moms and the “War on Women”, which Sandy Adams doesn’t. In fact, I’ve met more than one conservative activist, politician or regular American who grew up like Sandy Adams and became a leader in the conservative movement. Sandy joined the Air | Read More »

    I will not support this

    NOTE: Before I’d even finished writing this, Steve Foley (who nominally runs The Minority Report and who is running for Congress in California) edited the post. While I’m glad he dropped the particular language, I won’t congratulate him. The post is still vile, hateful garbage. I couldn’t reach him for comment. I haven’t posted at The Minority Report in a couple of years. It’s a | Read More »

    The Life of Maria in Barack Obama’s America

    In case you’ve missed it, the Obama Campaign has released the life of Julia.  “Julia” is a composite of women living in an America remolded in Barack Obama’s vision for the United States.  One wonders why the Obama Campaign would release a composite of a woman’s life just as Americans learned that the girlfriend detailed in his autobiography “Dreams of My Father” is a composite | Read More »

    Some intellectual honesty on voter ID laws

    We are not a democracy. I know that’s hard for most people to understand. I know we’ve been inculcated since the the Wilson Administration that we are a democracy. I know we were taught in American History class that World War I and World War II were about making the world “safe for democracy!” Well, those of us who were paying attention and not staring | Read More »

    Energy Honesty

    T. Boone Pickens claims that the Koch brothers are responsible for the lack of an energy policy in the United States. He says that because the Koch brothers are heavily invested in fertilizers and other chemicals, they are funding an effort to stop a cohesive energy policy. A policy he says would surely include a switch from petroleum to natural gas. Like his plan. Of | Read More »

    Fast Food Government

    I was speaking with a co-worker the other day as she explained her issues with her new mortgage lender. It seems that her previous lender sold her loan, and now it has taken several months and multiple phone calls to get her payment plan set back up the way she wanted it before. It occurred to me awhile later that her frustration explains an awful | Read More »

    Warren Buffett’s sinister view on taxes

    I can rephrase Dr. Goldstein’s anecdote in just a few words: “Your money or your life.” I’ve never met Matthew Goldstein, but judging by his bio I don’t think it’s something I’d like to do. It reads like a stereotype of the elitist, leftist intelligentsia. A B.A. in English and History, an M.A. in World and Comparative Literature (whatever that means) and a Ph.D. in | Read More »

    Mr. Buffett, you lie

    Warren Buffett took the time to write an op-ed piece in the Sunday New York Times and give Barack Obama some cannon fodder for his taxpayer-financed campaign bus trip. Not being a regular Times reader (I prefer the Journal), I heard about the piece after news reports of Mr. Obama quoting it on the campaign trail. It seems Mr. Buffett doesn’t think he and other | Read More »

    Rick Perry can’t be President, he might upset the fringe Left!

    Seems the Lamestream Media is scared stiff that Texas Governor Rick Perry may run for President. Jennifer Rubin (the “conservative” blogger at the Washington Post) initially writes a piece rightfully decrying the New York Times Op-Ed about Perry speaking at the Prayer Response Event last week, then had an unfortunate piece criticizing Perry for not being inclusive: In his comments at the event, Perry specifically | Read More »

    Intemperate Thoughts V

    My very first “Intemperate Thoughts” post came just after an Independence Day holiday, so it seems appropriate to have another during this holiday. For those unfamiliar, this is a list of random, often cynical and (hopefully) humorous thoughts that I’ve been collecting for the past few months.  They’re insensitive and meant to irk you.  And if you’re really offended by them, then I’m really, really | Read More »
