    Minimum wage and losing at life

    Erick has taken some heat over comments he made while guest hosting the Rush Limbaugh Show on Thursday on the subject of minimum wage (see Failing at Life for more context but a sample of the critiques are here, here, etc). I think Erick is mostly right on the issue. My family comes from Appalachia. Both my father and grandfather quit school at age thirteen to | Read More »

    My first decade on Red State

    Toward the end of July 2004 I saw a brief note in James Taranto’s “Best of the Web” column that a new conservative site, called RedState, was open for business. I had recently been banned from another conservative blog because I was a little too adept at and smug about irritating the moderators and was looking for a new home and decided to give RedState | Read More »

    The Conservative Choice for Mississippi: NOT Thad Cochran

    Now that the GOP primary in Mississippi has been settled by a strong infusion of Democrat votes it is time for conservatives to make their decision on what to do next. In my view, the only conservatives or anyone concerned about the direction of the country is to support, actively or passively, Travis Childers, the Democrat candidate for Senate.

    Friends don’t let friends vote for Thad Cochran

    My first vote in a presidential election was cast for Jimmy Carter. Now that I’ve rendered my on judgment suspect, you can read more or not. The outcome of the Mississippi primary was disappointing in many ways. A senile, adulterer whose sole value is providing government largess to the trough from which his donors feed won the nomination to be US Senator. To do this | Read More »

    Sergeant Bergdahl and thinking the worst of the Obama regime

    In view of the past five years of the Obama regime we’ve learned that just when you reach the point where you want to say “they’d never do that” you come up short and admit that they would. For instance, the using the IRS as political Brown Shirts has been passe since Richard Nixon tried it circa 1972. Benghazi: whether or not a rescue was | Read More »

    Philadelphia Eagles Sign Ranger Officer and Combat Veteran To Contract

    I’ve never been a huge Eagles fan, but that just might change. The Eagles have signed 6’9″, 277-lb Alejandro Villanueva as a rookie free agent to play on the Eagles defensive line. So what? you ask. Villanueva graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point with a Bachelor of Science in Systems Engineering and was commissioned into the U.S. Army on May 22, 2010 | Read More »

    Gizmodo Punks Vox.com

    Ezra Klein’s new venture, Vox.com, which that numskull Jeff Bezos refused to fund to the tune of $10+million has as its mission to explain everything you need to know about complicated subjects. For instance, if you want to know why confiscatory taxation is a really good thing, then you can read Matthew Yglesias’ epic Beyond the Laffer Curve–the case for confiscatory taxation. A couple of | Read More »

    @Maddow Lies and HuffPo’s @CathTaibi Acts As Fluffer

    On the left the term “debunking” has a unique meaning. It means you make up something your opponent never said then point out what they never said is wrong. Then you set back and wait for the usual collection of booklicks and fluffers to come along and proclaim your brilliance. This is what happened this week on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, at least according to | Read More »
