The Establishment Mantra : The Enemy (Democrat) of My Enemy (Conservative) is My Friend
Nobody can argue the fact the CRomnibus which passed the Republican led House 219-206 would not have been possible without the aid of Dem-friends and an equally chummy Dem-President. When bits of the funding bill started leaking out it was clear there would be defections from conservatives, enough to stop the bill in its tracks. At that point, Conservatives were solidified as the enemy as far as establishment was concerned. It wasn’t | Read More »
Jonathan Gruber… “I Behaved Badly.”
I’m not going into a line by line account of everything that Jonathan Gruber has written out as his official testimony before the House Committee on Oversight and Government reform. At the bottom is a link and you can read it for yourself. Or use Hotair’s link if you prefer. But I do want to make a couple things clear. When you pull it up in pdf | Read More »
And The Election Night Awards Go To…..
That election was FUN! But now to the important business of handing out awards, because so many people could not have won if it weren’t for the efforts of some of the * not winners*. * The first award goes to Abortion Barbie, Wendy Davis. With her one note campaign on abortion flopping badly, she upped her game to two notes and attacked her opponent on his disability. Repeatedly | Read More »
Prez Holds Special Dinner for Indian PM – Who is Fasting
While some people surf the sites I just gently float along, occasionally bumping into the flotsam and jetsam that makes it’s way onto the net. I landed at the blog section of The Hill where Justin Sink informs us that President Obama held a dinner in honor of new Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Incest is the New Gay. Embrace it!
Cutting to the chase. From The Telegraph: Criminal law is not the appropriate means to preserve a social taboo,” the German Ethics Council said in a statement. “The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination is to be weighed more heavily than the abstract idea of protection of the family.” Essentially the German Ethics Council wants to get rid of the laws which ban incest | Read More »
There’s a Movement (again) to Dismantle ATF.
The backstory here is Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) introduced a bill today which, in effect, gets rid of the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms). Woohoo, right? Its not the first time this issue has been thrown around and if it doesn’t make it then it probably won’t be the last. Even Reagan wanted to hand over ATF duties to the Secret Service. So, is it a good, bad or | Read More »
Only Gaywiches Can be Used to Raise Funds on Campus
You remember the Chick-fil-A dustup from a couple years ago, where the CEO of the company publicly stated he was against same sex marriage? Notice they don’t refuse service to gays or anything which might get them in trouble ala Jack Phillips, the Colorado baker who got in trouble for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple.

Breaking: Kicking and Screaming. Obama Holds off on Amnesty Until After Elections.
What the heck just happened? President Obama made it clear he would take “executive action” and handle the issue of illegal immigration himself and he was going to do it by the end of summer.

Bacon! Bacon! Tasty Bacon!
If you’re wondering what to have for lunch or dinner tonight may I suggest a BLT or a bacon cheeseburger and do it with pride and in protest. Remember the huge lines outside Chick Fil-A regarding a political disagreement? It’d be nice to have those same lines at the pork counter of the grocery store. Here’s your reason: A sign advertising bacon at the Sneakers Bistro in Vermont | Read More »
