    The Campaign Hurricane e-mails: Obama seeks $$, Romney sends prayers

    Wow.  I never get used to it…  As hyper-informed and cognizant of the evil/buffoonery/cravenness of this administration as I am, I never get used to the petty, maladroit, and moronic e-mails with which they pepper their base.  No–I’m not part of the base, but my masochistic side subscribes to Obama-blasts, Moochelle-blasts, Messina-Axelrod-Springsteen-Sheryl Crow….  You get the point: masochism.  None so painful as this shameless tripe | Read More »

    ObamaCare, the Supremes, and Catholic delusion

    We’re now weeks, not months, away from the Supreme Court ruling on ObamaCare.  Looking back, I remember comments by Fidel Castro upon passage of the law.  Until that time, we’d “lagged Cuba” and been denied the “right” to have technocrats control health insurance via “progressive” planning.  We achieved “common sense.”  The complaint, that “America is the only western nation that denies health care,” had been | Read More »

    Conservatopia: Rumination on Reality, 5-30-2012

    The nation is tired, not mentally (though there is that), but tired – as in sick-and-tired – of anyone who shares an opinion at odds with another opinion being called a bigot, a racist, or worse.  Racism exists, and always will in America, but the Left is soiling the subject.  Those dedicated to remunerative anger – the Sharptons and Jacksons – are modern day rakes; | Read More »

    Dishonor in Death: The Left “eulogizes” Andrew Breitbart

        The body was still warm, Andrew Breitbart’s spouse and children in pain, when the Tweets started rolling in.  As anyone who followed Andrew knows, he was famous for retweeting the onslaught against him–every vile, disgusting f-in this or f-you that on his account.  Even in death, the onslaught persisted, and so – to honor him – I seized the mantle, retweeting and recording, | Read More »

    Remembering Breitbart: a Roman Candle Star

    Andrew Breitbart passed away last night.  Breitbart, lightning and lodestar, was activism personified, a raging pioneer in the media revolution.  Courageous, fearless, tireless…. He was these and more, an adjective train–irascible, irreverent, iconic, IN YOUR FACE. I’m reminded of another Andy– Kaufman.  Both men were controversial.  Both gored the ox, punked paradigms, and “flipped tables.”  But unlike Kaufman, Andrew was serious, his focus keen on | Read More »

    Failure to Honor Washington: a Triumph of the Left

      On this, what would have been George Washington’s 279th birthday week, Americans will go about their business, a free people, without acknowledging – nor celebrating – the man whose toil on their behalf was measureless.  I say “free people,” sadly aware that we’re becoming less free, and that diminution of Washington symbolizes the push to “alter” history to make this so. This, of course, | Read More »

    Bill Maher and Tim Tebow: Self-loathing vs. Grace

    Now that Christmas is over and atheists can crawl back into their holes until Easter, Bill Maher’s now infamous “Tim Tebow Tweet” requires perspective.  The tweet, posted on Christmas Eve day, read: Wow, Jesus just f**ked Tim Tebow!  And on Xmas Eve!  Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them.” Maher was referring to the Buffalo Bills pounding the Denver | Read More »

    Game on: Pawlenty calls for phase-out of ethanol subsidies

    Tim Pawlenty is serious. I’ve been saying for awhile that a ticket with Pawlenty, a two-term governor from Minnesota, at the top, and a galvanizer – an Allen West or a Marco Rubio – at the bottom, can bring the White House to Republicans. Going forward, boldness is needed, and in Des Moines, Iowa, Pawlenty came through. In a speech entitled “A Time for Truth,” | Read More »
