A Trifecta of Tools for Victory, Part II: NationBuilder
The pricing for campaign tech is in free-fall. If we applied a sort of pricing version of Moore’s Law to online campaign software, you’d have the picture. Capabilites expand arithmetically, while the price drop is almost logarithmic. That’s only a tiny exaggeration (mathematically) but better illustrated with a direct comparison: the same technology that gleaned Obama’s campaign web site 400,000 online volunteers and $750 | Read More »
Our National Debt Equals Our Entire Economy for One Year.
For more than a day now, Drudge’s main headline has been substantially the same as the headline on this story. Let me tell you what that really means. If the government took 100% of all our paychecks and pensions for the full year, that would not make an appreciable dent in our national debt. If the government took 100% of our paychecks and pensions for | Read More »
Vengeance is Mine, Saith Obama
Obama tried it all. Closing Guantanamo. Ending the war. Civilian trials for terrorists. The surge. Now he’s just killing, with a remarkable lack of dissent from his own side (remember: “Bush lied. People died.”). So we learn from drone operatives (literally) that Obama is, after all, and for solid ‘political’ reasons… a stone killer. From Newsweek: Some counterterrorism experts say that President Obama and his | Read More »
Tax ‘Compromise’ Will Accomplish… Further Disaster.
Businesspeople know that the proposed tax compromises will accomplish exactly nothing and will not result in any real measure of economic recovery or higher employment. Why? Two Year Tax Cut Extension: most businessmen plan considerably further out than 2 years. Giving them an additional 2 years of ‘tax relief’ will not free up capital for hiring – it will simply give them 2 more years | Read More »
Final Conditions for Victory
Events have conspired to serve us well. Our battlefield is prepared for us as few ever are. Except for small, isolated pockets, there simply is not any good news for the Democrats in these midterm elections. Read the facts that obtain nationwide below and consider – prior to my own report on the local Colbert v Schiff campaign here in CA CD 29. Speaker Pelosi, | Read More »
It Could Only Be Because He’s Racist.
Chris Matthews can’t understand why voters could have a problem with a far left wing president, yet still elect an indian-american woman. What would prevent that understanding? But then you nominated, your party has nominated an Indian-American woman, Nikki Haley. Obviously an attractive candidate, she knows how to present herself obviously, but what’s that about? Is that just an interesting little aspect? “It’s okay to be Indian-American | Read More »
Somehow We Aren’t Surprised, Are We? Order a Pizza, Get a TSA Job
Anybody who ever stood in an airport line already suspected. ‘Nuff said. H/T Drudge.
Obama Makes Reporting on Spill A Felony
Think this rule didn’t come directly from the White House? Getting within 65 feet of essential gulf recovery efforts is now a Class D felony with a $40,000 fine. Reporters have been thwarted again and again trying to bring us reportage on the Gulf situation. (H/T Tabitha Hale) This was first reported on July 1, and I’m very surprised that bloggers everywhere have not picked | Read More »
Obama Intimidation, Fraud Went Back to Primaries
Like something you would expect from a Democrat, it’s all emotional and produced to be practically unverifiable. But conservatives should be just as outraged by this just as most democrats seem complacent about it. JadedbyPolitics mentions it from another perspective today and Fox finally ‘ran’ the story but also successfully buried it at the same time. When I saw the clip below (H/T Susan in | Read More »
