Gang Plan: Perennial De Facto Amnesty
One of the most common bromides regurgitated by Republicans in defense of ‘amnesty first, enforcement later’ proposals is that we already have de facto amnesty with Obama not enforcing the laws. This was always a dubious argument even before the release of the gang bill. We should not use Obama’s malevolence as a baseline from which to craft public policy. Instead of rewarding Obama for | Read More »
Ohio Hospital Association Millionaires Want More of Your Money
Ohio Hospital Association (OHA) insistence that its members need more taxpayer funding has featured prominently in the debate over expanding Medicaid, but is OHA really in a position to demand more state and federal dollars? Former OHA President & CEO James Castle, who was replaced by Michael Abrams this February, was paid $600,198 by the hospital lobbying group in 2011. The current chair of the | Read More »
Because reading is hard…
There’s been a lot of talk about “marco-phones” in the Outrage Class today. There are some that have decided that a provision in the proposed immigration bill that calls for satellite communication to be provided to areas on the border that lack cellular coverage is the equivalent of throwing free goodies at the masses and telling them to text all their friends about how super | Read More »

Salon Magazine And White Males
The smartest, most literate, most influential minds of America have something mordant and deeply wrong infecting the core of their souls. No publication epitomizes this sarcoma more completely than Salon Magazine. Salon Magazine’s commentary following the Boston Marathon Terror Bombing provides further evidence that America’s most well-educated and carefully trained minds are in the midst of the iniquitous process of turning our nation into just the sort of evil we used to stand up and fight.
Just as every INGSOC needs a Goldstein; every Progressive needs a good Boogeyman to make the proletariat perform another idiot dance. Salon Magazine wants a good, stereotypical, White Male. They would even prefer a Bible-believing Christian if available. They hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a !WHITE! American. Like all good Progressives, they have another racial quota to fill. Bigotry worthy of Reverend Al Sharpton follows below.

“White privilege is knowing that even if the bomber turns out to be white, no one will call for your group to be profiled as terrorists as a result, subjected to special screening or threatened with deportation,” writes author Tim Wise. “White privilege is knowing that if this bomber turns out to be white, the United States government will not bomb whatever corn field or mountain town or stale suburb from which said bomber came, just to ensure that others like him or her don’t get any ideas. And if he turns out to be a member of the Irish Republican Army we won’t bomb Dublin. And if he’s an Italian-American Catholic we won’t bomb the Vatican.”
Deutschland Meets Detroit: UAW partners with German union to launch all-out invasion of Mercedes & VW plants in U.S.
Not withstanding the UAW’s contribution to the decline of Detroit’s Big Three, it’s been more than two years since the UAW’s Bob King announced his union’s intent to “shame” foreign auto makers into unionizing their American workers through “blackmail.”
Moreover, it’s been nearly two years since the UAW’s King began talks with the German union IG Metal and VW’s works council.
With some set backs, to date, progress at unionizing foreign automakers’ U.S. operations has been slow going for Detroit’s most progressive union boss–to say the least.
Now, even as the UAW fights with its own employees, things have begun to heat up in the South.

Hey, Charlie Brown, Are You Ready for Some Immigration Football?
As the Gang of 8 introduces their proposal, just remember that all of your concerns are unfounded. Unlike previous amnesties, this one will not grow the welfare state; it will not affect wages; it will not change the composition of the country. Most importantly, it will finally ensure that we enforce the laws before people are granted amnesty. NOT! Although the bill keeps being leaked | Read More »
Media “Expert” SIUE Prof: ‘April Is A Month For Right Wing Extremism’
Shameful. Last night KSDK, the local NBC affiliate in St. Louis, gave platform to SIUE professor Dr. Morris Taylor who suggested that Boston is the work of “right win extremism” because April is the month of “Hitler’s birthday and Timothy McVeigh.” The remark comes at around 1:40: Click the image to watch the video Dr. Morris Taylor, a terrorism expert with Southern Illinois University Edwardsville | Read More »
Calling The Thing By Its Name
Three hours after yesterday’s Boston Marathon Bombings, President Obama gave a short statement in which he pointedly declined to use the word “terrorism.” Shortly after his appearance, an unnamed White House official issued a written statement “Any event with multiple explosive devices — as this appears to be — is clearly an act of terror, and will be approached as an act of terror.” Defense | Read More »
Keystone XL: The Greener Way To Plentiful, Affordable Oil
The folks at FuelingJobs.com have created a petition urging President Obama to approve the project and with it a fantastic infographic which explains the importance of innovation in oil and gas. The information reminded me of when a union laborer family friend of ours who attends our church approached me about the topic. He listens to my program from time to time and recently thanked me for supporting the Keystone | Read More »
Prayers and Boston
We do not know who did it. We will have time to be angry at the person or persons who placed bombs in Boston, turned happy memories to tragedy, and took lives all for some cause about which we as of yet know nothing. We can speculate. We can call it terrorism. But for now we really do not know who or why or even | Read More »
The Grotesque Politicization Of The Boston Bombing
The practice of journalism as an objective excercise is dead. It has been for some time, if it ever existed. Not hours after the bombings did these vultures begin spinning: Charles Pierce at Esquire: BOSTON — This is just breaking, but at least two explosions occurred in downtown Boston near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Several people were injured and two have been reported dead. There | Read More »
Terror in Boston
Early reports are often misleading, and there will be time enough for politics when the facts are in. But we know this much, so far: there were multiple explosions around the finish line of today’s Boston Marathon, there are a number of people dead and many horrible injuries, and authorities confirm there were multiple bombs. The Marathon is a huge target – a ton of | Read More »
Director Of MO Department Of Revenue Resigns In Wake Of CCW Scandal
Missouri for the past month has dealt with a massive scandal: the illegal surrender of its full conceal-carry permit list to the federal government based on the bogus premise of an “investigation” which magically disappeared after the list was received. Now the head of one of the departments in the middle of the scandal has resigned: Gov. Jay Nixon today announced that Missouri Department of Revenue | Read More »
