Liberals Love to Hate: Guns
H/T to Lukem at USACarry. Liberals have made guns one of their chief enemies and primary targets. After all, guns allow us to protect ourselves instead of relying on government protection. They give us the ability to provide sustenance for our families. They give us the opportunity to protect ourselves from an overbearing, controlling and tyrannical government (which, of course, is the primary goal of | Read More »
We Will All Pay More Taxes
President Obama and the Liberal Media keep expounding on the notion that 95% of Americans will be getting a tax break (actually, 48% are getting a tax break, and 47% are getting welfare). Only individuals earning more than $250,000$200,000 each year will pay more taxes under the Obama Administration. So why are so many “middle class rednecks” (as more than one talking head has called | Read More »
Why Stop Now? Keep the Tea Parties Alive!
With the massive success of the Tea Parties (and the predictable backlash from the liberal media), why stop now? At present, the “Tax Day Tea Party Numbers” thread (combined with my totals in the 247-250th comments this AM) has 222 sites with more than 410,000 participants. On a Wednesday. On a day when many people have to work. Could this be even bigger, even harder | Read More »
Obama’s Accidental Success
I am sick to death of hearing about the “Success Story” regarding the pirate hostage taking off the coast of Somalia. Nothing could be further from the truth, and here’s why: First of all, Obama shouldn’t have been involved in the first place. There is no reason why the President should have to personally make a decision regarding rescuing a hostage taken in an act | Read More »
Do You Get It Now, Mr. President?
As the Obama Administration cuts defense spending, a Syrian Man with press credentials was apparently stopped before he could get close enough to stab the President. This as Mr. Obama declares to Turkey, “We are not at war with Islam.” The President is right. We are not at war with Islam. We are at war with Islamic Extremism. We are at war with those who | Read More »
The Mind of an Obama Supporter
Can this really be serious? Was this guy serious when he posted this? An exchange on Facebook, commenting on a status message: “to[sic] many bills and not enough money to go around.” The replies came as follows, from two individuals I’ll call “M” and “P”: M: Um, yeah… Amen… P: Welcome to the club. This is the fruit of Dubya’s America. At least we can | Read More »
Welcome to Serfdom
I love talking to my dad. We don’t talk often enough anymore, but we talk about everything, from life to economics to politics to short-lived Sci-Fi TV shows with “Mal”-content smuggler captains. Today’s discussion was largely about outsourcing, which eventually led to a discussion on taxes and economics. Dad mentioned that this recession will probably recover more slowly and with fewer new jobs than any | Read More »
Talk about the law of unintended consequences. Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid and Barney Frank are outraged over the $165 million in bonuses paid to the executives at AIG. They and other in Congress are pushing for new legislation that will single-out the AIG execs to get the money back. According to some, that’s a bad idea:
The Guilded Age
MORE! Politically Incorrect Bedtime Stories for Young Conservatives. In continuing with the positive response for my story on How the Wheel Was Invented, I’ve done some more story-telling. Again in the style of a children’s fable, I took on another current subject in the media: The Orwellian-named “Employee Free Choice Act” and the effect of unions on society. This one is longer than most diaries | Read More »
Jindal Wasn’t There? Prove It.
Originally written as a response to a comment, expanding this makes pretty good diary material. If there’s one thing I’m getting tired of, it’s people arguing that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) is lying about his trip to Jefferson Parish and helping Sheriff Harry Lee (D-LA) cut through bureaucratic red tape. The only “evidence” that is offered is that there are no photographs or video | Read More »
