Progressive Media Omits My Point About MLK In CO Speech *UPDATED
Over the weekend at the “Farewell to Arms” event I purposefully quoted and riffed from Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic “I Have A Dream Speech.” The entire point of my doing so was at the end, when I said “And the entire point of this? This historic civil rights leader was disarmed, just as you, Colorado, are being disarmed. The left never tells you that King’s | Read More »
Palin’s Third-Party Solution is Part of The Problem
I’ll admit, for a brief moment in 2008, I thought John McCain might actually have a chance at winning. That moment was at the end of Sarah Palin’s speech during which she took a mere 45 minutes to eviscerate the 18 months of image building that was Barack Obama’s campaign.
In 2008, to me, Sarah Palin was the “hope” and “change” the GOP could have used. However, shortly after her convention speech, the McCain campaign took over, the Left attacked, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Now, after four years of being the quasi-professional bomb-throwing GOP outsider, Palin is tossing the idea out there that she’s open to supporting a third party.

Wendy Davis’ Unstable Political Future
With Texas State Senator Wendy Davis’ filibuster of SB 5 last week, she’s become a liberal rockstar. Her filibuster was halted and the bill was passed, but not before the 12am deadline, which killed the bill – for now. The unruly masses of pro-aborts in the gallery caused such a disturbance that procedural motions were unable to be heard, thus preventing the bill from being | Read More »

Egypt, America and Revolutionary War
“A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.” Mao Tse-Tung (HT: Goodreads.com) I do not care is how an honest human being describes a | Read More »
Spencer Bachus Needs More Time With Family
Imagine the Democrats reelecting a guy like this from one of their most liberal urban districts. Spencer Bachus has always been a big government Republican. He has supported all the financial bailouts. He has also opposed efforts to rein in government intervention in public housing, at least until Fannie and Freddie became so unpopular. He has been a reliable vote for wage controls during the | Read More »
NC Unemployment Cuts: A Necessary & Difficult Change
Yesterday, North Carolina became the first state in the country to forfeit federal long-term unemployment benefits. As her state budgets continued to balloon and unemployment remains uncomfortably high, the Republican controlled legislature ended the state’s war on prudent fiscal policy by exempting herself from receiving further federal assistance for people unemployed longer than 26 weeks, as well as lowering the maximum potential benefit. If you | Read More »

Ed Snowden continues to betray America.
I went off on this on Twitter last night, and I am no less disgusted today: Ed Snowden does not, in fact, care for the United States of America. The German magazine Der Spiegel reported Saturday that the NSA had bugged European Union offices and gained access to EU internal computer networks where it was able to read documents and emails. United Nations offices were | Read More »
Obama’s Biased NLRB: New NLRB Progressive Propaganda Chief Comes Straight From AFSCME HQ
Should there be any doubters remaining that Barack Obama’s National Labor Relations Board is a revolving door from which union bosses’ minions are planted to serve unions’ interests, one only need to look at the latest hire at the NLRB.

Colorado’s Paul “Buddy System” Rosenthal Runs From Constituents At Magpul Event
Yesterday at the Farewell To Arms event I met the man I criticized afar for his political sell-out of Coloradans’s Second Amendment Rights — and criticized the day of the event via Twitter. “Paul Rosenthal is here. He’s at the bar,” I was told by an attendee as I shook hands and talked to angry residents. Rosenthal was, in fact, at the bar, invited by | Read More »
The Boomerang Effect: Union Bosses Fear ‘Collapse’ of Obama’s NLRB & Supreme Court Ruling
As long as Senate Republicans don’t waffle and cave in (which, unfortunately, is not out of the question) to left-wing pressure, on August 28th, union bosses will lose their principle weapon in their war on America’s union-free workplace.

Hi, Rhode Island! Enjoy your 10% #Obamacare hikes!
If you’re lucky. Rhode Island Health Insurance Commissioner Christopher F. Koller has approved 2014 health insurance rates that he called “significantly lower” than those requested — but that still involve increases in premiums. [snip] For the majority of Rhode Islanders who get health insurance from large employers, rates will go up, on average, 9.5 percent to 12 percent.
The “Evolving” Energy Policies of President Bystander
In a “groundbreaking” speech Tuesday at Georgetown University, Barack Obama rehashed the same anti-Big Oil rhetoric and half-baked energy policies that have marked his Administration since 2009.

Wind power kills birds. Birds that Greenies are supposedly FOND of.
Look, the news that the extinct-for-the-area white-throated needletail bird had been spotted in Scotland – only to be promptly sucked into a wind turbine, accompanied by the screams of horrified amateur ornithologists – should not be surprising. Wind farms are Giant Scythes Of Swinging Doom, when it comes to birds. The American Bird Conservancy rather desperately wants to support wind power, which is why they’re | Read More »
