Senator Jeff Sessions Is the Winter Soldier of the American Working Class
So Congress has passed a government funding measure that has pegged the national cynicism meter to the red and made us all feel like government represents itself at our expense. This so-called “Cromnibus” allocates $1.1T to avoiding a government shutdown. In the process, this 1,603 page legislation funds a lot of things that a lot of people do not like. One thing that particularly bothers | Read More »

So Saudi Arabia has decided to pump more supply into a regime of falling oil prices. Embrace the positive. This is a good for humanity. Cheap energy makes your life more profitable.

Senator Warren’s Subprime Demagoguery
may have been the least qualified professor to teach at Harvard University since Dr. Agassiz was measuring skulls to determine the validity of phrenological inquiries about racial intelligence. That; or she is the least honest woman to hold a powerful position in American politics. Her latest assault on American interracial comity comes hot on the heels of riots in St. Louis, Berkeley, and New York | Read More »

Our ‘Irresponsible’ and ‘Unpatriotic’ $18 Trillion National Debt
Today, the national debt is $18,005,549,328,561.45. It was $10,626,877,048,913.08 when Obama became president. That is an increase of more than a 7.4 trillion dollars during the almost six years of the Obama presidency. There is much to be disappointed about during Obama’s presidency.

Bernie Sanders – The Purest Leftist Possible in 2016.
So Diogenes wandered the City of Demville with his lamp. His shoulders sagged, his expression grew hang-dog. He searched in vain for one honest man other than Jonathan Gruber. Ah, but his eyes lit up and his frown turned around. There was one man….one honest man on the American Left. That one last defender of the faith was, alas, not a registered Democrat. He is | Read More »

Obama’s trashing of the economy: by the numbers

Hillary Gives Us The Business, David Perdue Gives Us The Truth
