Obama’s flag Desecration brings to mind the 1980′s song “Silent Running (On Dangerous Ground)”
Obama’s flag Desecration — substituting his logo for the 50 states — brings to mind the 1980′s song “Silent Running (On Dangerous Ground)” Silent Running: Take the children and yourself And hide out in the cellar By now the fighting will be close at hand Don’t believe the church and state And everything they tell you Believe in me, I’m with the high command Can you hear me, can you hear | Read More »
The Potentially Fatal – But Fixable! – Romney /Ryan Messaging
The Romney campaign, and Republicans in general, do not seem to be cognizant of the fact that they’re playing into Obama’s hands. The Romney/Ryan declarations regarding entrepreneurship, businesses and (in particular) “redistribution of wealth” are hurting rather than helping. The reason is that while the conservative base understands the import of these terms and the essential role they play in bringing prosperity for all, to | Read More »
Has the NRA been co-opted by the Left?
Has the NRA been co-opted by the Left? In the past year we have witnessed the AARP selling out its membership (presumably for favors yet unknown) to very actively support Obamacare. We have also witnessed the same dynamic with the AMA selling out physicians, and big Pharma selling out its stockholders, both also enlisted as useful idiots promoting the cause of socializing medicine.

ECONOMIC TOTALITARIANISM IS COMING
ECONOMIC TOTALITARIANISM IS COMING THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists banks,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a banker. THEN THEY CAME for the Jews auto industry,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t an automaker. THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists healthcare,

Fascist Government or Gangsta Government?
“The fascist bargain goes something like this. The state says to the industrialist, ‘You may stay in business and own your factories. In the spirit of cooperation and unity, we will even guarantee you profits and a lack of serious competition. In exchange, we expect you to agree with — and help implement — our political agenda.’” — Jonah Goldberg’s “Liberal Fascism” Michael Barone has written | Read More »
Obamacare, Constitutional challenges and the “Mother Of All Tax Increases”
Obamacare, Constitutional challenges and the “Mother Of All Tax Increases” Now that we’ve had the Democrat Congressional cram-down of Obamacare, and the constitutional challenges to same are heading for bat, a major point seems to have been lost by our side (and deliberately ignored by the Democrats). More on that in a moment. Frequently cited as Constitutional justifications for the Obamacare are Congress’ authority under | Read More »
Waxman nostalgic for free-market capitalism and the rule of law
Early in the regime of Barack Hussein Obama those attentive to current events were witness to event’s that “transformed” two of the pillars of our economic system — the rule of law and sanctity of contract — to something more resembling a Banana Republic. That event was the bailout of the United Auto Workers, financed in part by the taxpayers (disturbing enough in and of | Read More »
Dear Mr. Census: Aren’t we all African-Americans?
Dear Mr. Census: Aren’t we all African-Americans? Moments ago, while looking at (though not yet completing) the 2010 U.S. Census form, I noticed that Question Six states: “What is this person’s race? Mark ‘x’ one or more boxes.” I know that some in the scientific community consider that race is a social construct, not a scientific or biological distinction. In any case, the first option | Read More »
Down with Vichy Republican collaborators! Vive la Republican Résistance!
Down with Vichy Republican collaborators! Vive la Republican Résistance! By: Ragin’ Patriot So-called “moderate Republicans” tell us that the Republican Party must be pragmatic in a United States of changing demographics and “beyond the point of no return” advance of progressive’s social welfare programs … and so accede to creeping collectivism, our goal merely to buffer its excesses. These “voices of moderation” echo | Read More »
