10 Worst Kings and Queens of England and the United Kingdom
I want to leave American politics for a moment, although some of what is in this post can be found in the American politics of today. I leave to you to decide. And I hope you learn something. Being somewhat of an Anglophile, I love comparative history. One can search various events in history and find commonality with the present time. I could have listed | Read More »
Democrat Lies On What Ails Small Business
James Pethokoukis links to a post by Brad DeLong that quotes a post by Democrat shill Paul Krugman (Krugman also had a column in Friday’s New York Times on the same subject). Here is what Krugman had to say: Larry Mishel has a very good piece systematically debunking the zombie claim that fears of regulation are holding back job creation. There is, literally, not a | Read More »
Why is Chu Still at DoE?
The Washington Post would have its readers believe Energy Secretary Steven Chu has accepted responsibility for his role in the Solyndra debacle. There’s only one problem: it ain’t true.
My wife and I do much of our banking at Bank of America, including using debit cards issued from them. Needless to say, neither one of us was really thrilled by BofA’s adding a fee for using the debit card on purchases. While it would be easy to blame BofA for taking this action, I know it came as a result of the passage of | Read More »
Re: The Unprecedented Killing of Anwar al-Awlaki
Disclosure: I am not a lawyer. OK, that’s out of the way. I understand the post by streiff regarding the U.S. killing of American-born Islamist terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki. Like streiff, I was glad President Obama ordered this action. However, I disagree with the position streiff and others have taken in believing Awlaki’s killing was unprecedented. In the post, streiff includes two Civil War Confederate guerillas, | Read More »
Picking the Losers With the Losers
As was reported yesterday, the Energy Department has decided to loan out around $1.1 billion to other “green” energy companies, with $740 million going to a California-based company called SolarReserve. This follows on the administration’s incompetence with lending money to Solyndra, which was backed by Argonaut Private Equity, owned by Obama bundler and Oklahoma billionaire George Kaiser. As is also known, via Gateway Pundit, Nancy | Read More »
What Country Did Bill Clinton Think He Was President Of?
This has to be the funniest thing I’ve read in awhile, and the fact that it is coming from the loony goons at Think Progress is dripping with irony: “Clinton: ‘There Is Not A Single Solitary Example’ Of A Country That Has Succeeded With A Tea Party Philosophy“. As it is campaign season, Clinton is doing what Democrats do, putting the interests of the Democratic | Read More »
Democrats Excel at Faking It
There is nothing so dangerous as the faux “outrage” of Democrats over Republican policy. Over at HuffPo, there are two stories embedded into one regarding drug testing that new Republican governors Nikki Haley of South Carolina and Rick Scott of Florida want implemented. There is a lot missing in both stories, perhaps deliberately so, perhaps not.
Obama’s Job “Plan” Justifies S&P’s Downgrade
The other night, the President said he was going to provide a bill to Congress called the ASOJA, the American Save Obama’s Job Act, or as the President calls it, the American Jobs Act. Morrissey has it right; it’s Porkulus II: Electric Boogaloo. It’s a nearly $450 billion rehashing of the failed Porkulus boondoggle that launched this administration’s historic increase to the national debt. Worse | Read More »
The Obama administration may call it Operation Odyssey Dawn, but I think my name is more appropriate. This is Obama’s war. Worse, it’s a war seemingly without a legitimate foreign policy goal; it also follows the administration’s lack of real outrage at the release, by the British government, of the Lockerbie terrorist al-Megrahi (who still hasn’t croaked). Full Disclosure: I would love to see Qaddafi | Read More »

Holder Needs To Be Fired Yesterday
While it would be easy to blame Barack Obama for Eric Holder being the Attorney General, and he does deserve half of the blame, Senate Republicans didn’t take the step to make sure Holder wasn’t confirmed. As Attorney General, Holder is a joke; he’s worse than Janet Reno, worse than Alberto Gonzales, and nearly as bad as Ramsey Clark and John Mitchell. Yesterday, Holder was | Read More »
“If you listen to fools,”…
This needs to be the conservatives’ fight song for battling the Fleebaggers and public employee union thugs. Since I am a devotee of heavy metal, this is perfect. Turn it way up. Inspired by Michelle Malkin: When rules are lobbed, mobs rule.
You Get What You Pay For – Open Thread
Last August, the Washington Post sold Newsweak Newsweek magazine for a buck to a 91-year old stereo equipment magnate Sidney Harman, who also assumed the periodical’s debt. Three months later the Daily Beast merged with Newsweek. The cheap purchase price from the Newsweek buy has allowed the Daily Beast to entice Andrew “Excitable Andy” Sullivan, the “conservative” pot-smoker and “expert to the masses” on all | Read More »
“We have top men working on it right now.”
I’ve seen arrogance before, but I’ve never seen such arrogance in the federal government as it is exhibited by the lawless Obama regime. Even after Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) rejected $2.4 billion for what would eventually be the expensive high-speed rail boondoggle subsidized by Florida’s taxpayers, the attempt by U.S. Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) to put the Democratic Party’s interest ahead of the state he | Read More »

Ode to Public Broadcasting
When mentioning conservatives, leftists (progressives, liberals, socialists, or whatever phrase du jour these people use to describe themselves) try to claim that we are narrow-minded, inflexible troglodytes, stuck with quaint and antiquated ideas, living in the past, yadda, yadda, yadda. The most vile leftists will take it a step further, but this post isn’t about that. What is fascinating is the irony of these descriptions; | Read More »
Man-Made Global Warming Causing…(*snicker* *snicker*)…Ice
OK, the article on this doesn’t actually say that, but I couldn’t pass it up. It’s a report of a huge increase in ice on the Baltic Sea. It’s extended beyond 250,000 square kilometers (sorry, I don’t convert metric), one of the worst in recent memory: The last time so much of the Baltic was frozen was the winter of 1986-87, when ice covered nearly | Read More »
Man-Made Global Warming Causing ME Uprisings, Obama’s Lybia [sic] Policy
Well…not exactly. It isn’t that man-made global warming is the cause of these uprisings; it’s the policies, what I call the dogma of the religion of Anthropogenic Climatism, being used to “fight” it. For years, the Dept. of Agriculture has subsidized farmers, especially those growing corn, to funnel their harvest towards the production of corn-based ethanol and biofuels instead of as food; as a result, | Read More »
I’ve been saying recently that Tea Party and other conservative protests need to include a demand that the entire lawless Obama regime resign since they truly have no business being in their positions; after all, this is the standard Obama set regarding the removal of Hosni Mubarak as President of Egypt. So I’ve been thinking about past successions to the office of President that have | Read More »
The Pro-Abortion Freak Show
The South Dakota state legislature recently put together a bill to update a justifiable homicide law that added protecting the unborn from criminal harm in its classification. Pro-abortion fanatics had a cow. The deceit was so bad the legislature shelved the bill for now; they wouldn’t even work on fixing the language in the bill. The zealots are back in force as Nebraska and Iowa | Read More »
