ObamaCare suckers needed, inquire within
In the course of explaining why the White House is still spending huge amounts of time and money to convince Americans that ObamaCare doesn’t stink, even though we hate it more with every passing month, Time drops this little nugget of information: At the White House, health care implementation has become an obsession. Chief of Staff Denis McDonough spends two hours a day on Obamacare implementation, staffers said, and senior | Read More »
The Path Forward on the Farm Bill
Today, GOP leadership suffered a stunning defeat as 62 Republicans voted against the 5-year farm bill (H.R. 1947), which locks in the record baseline of food stamp spending and creates multiple new agriculture subsidy programs. A handful of them voted against it because it cut too much spending, and others like Bill Shuster voted no because they are facing potential primary challenges (Shuster voted for | Read More »
Amazing Audio from @GRTL : “If All Aren’t Protected, None Are Protected.”
There is a rumor the folks at Georgia Right to Life reject Genesis 5 – 10 because Noah couldn’t save all the animals, only pairs. Fox 5 Atlanta led their newscast last night with Georgia Right to Life joining pro-abortion groups to oppose pro-life legislation in Congress. I have been telling you that Georgia Right to Life’s position has descended to the insane position of | Read More »
After The Gold Rush IV: Fear Not The Latent Unpleasantness. Fear The Pain-Killer Instead
Kicking the metaphorical Mr. Brownstone of QE is also necessary for the United States to ever redevelop the economic power that we once enjoyed. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke may be pitching his last inning, but he said the right thing when he announced that The Fed would taper the rate at which it shelled out QE. As you can read below, that will be hard. Here’s what Mr. Bernanke got as a reward for speaking the truth to a gaggle of easy money addicts yesterday.
STOCKS GETTING SLAMMED — INTEREST RATES SPIKING — COMMODITIES CRUSHED — GOLD AND SILVER TANKING, The LIBOR Of China Is Going Totally Ballistic, Market Bloodbath In Brazil, and you’d better have a GOOD Plan ready, because Night Wolf is Eating The Moon Virgin! Now I can’t quite verify that last one, but it’s not a good day to check in and take a peek at the Ye Olde Mutual Funds.

Peter King Claims Domestic Spying Would Have Prevented 9/11
Rep. King spoke with Jake Tapper: First, there’s no way agencies would have shared information as one of the most glaring mistakes gleaned from the 9/11 Commission’s report is that bureaucracy prevented such agency cooperation. Lastly, King presupposes that 9/11 was solely a terror problem. As I’ve addressed previously, 9/11 began as an immigration problem: You didn’t need NSA or its surveillance system to thwart | Read More »
Democrats Aren’t The Only Problem
Many conservatives believe the tipping point has tipped – that a majority of Americans are either ill-informed, uneducated, delusional, foolish, feel entitled or are just plain lazy to the point where they will continue to vote for the Party or candidate they feel will give them more and more free stuff. Young kids espousing socialism over capitalism; rich liberals with their guilt and hypocrisy about | Read More »

We Elected Liars Like Bob Corker
We sit back helplessly watching our elected Republicans cut backroom deals with Chuck Schumer to sell out the Republic and create a permanent Democrat majority. Yet we have nobody to blame but ourselves for electing these liars in the first place. Back in 2006, conservatives split their votes in Tennessee between Van Hilleary and Ed Bryant, handing a solid red seat to progressive Bob Corker. | Read More »

Rubio vs. Rubio
As a candidate for the United States Senate, Marco Rubio campaigned on a tough, “no amnesty” immigration stance, in which he advocated against a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and in strong support of border security before legalization. Now, as a leader of the “Gang of 8,” he has embraced — and in many instances moved farther left of — the very policies he | Read More »
Tech at Night: Obama’s FCC Chairman pick goes to the Hill. For once, I agree with John McCain.
Seen on RedState this week: 10 questions for Obama’s nominee to chair FCC. It doesn’t sound like his answers are all great, which is in keeping with this adminstration’s inability to follow through with good spectrum policy.
In video games, this Microsoft announcement means both more and less than it’s made out to be. Yes, they are backing off on some of the mandatory online stuff, and removing whole features (like trading digital games) in order to respond to Sony. But they’re not promising no DRM, and in fact they just promised no selling of digital copies. However what they did do is 1-up Sony, who has left used game restrictions to publishers.
No, no, no, do not pass the Lofgren bill. Using or hijacking other people’s computing resources without permission to use them for your purposes, that should be a crime. If I accidentally leave my car unlocked, and you come swipe it, we don’t say “Oh well, you should have been more careful,” and let you off without penalty.
Aaron Swartz wanted to be the martyr. He made himself one. He only faced years in prison because he chose it. Instead of pleading guilty, he wanted a big, showy trial. Changing the law because of that person is just ridiculous and anti-property rights.

Moral Vacancy at Georgia Right to Life
“As far as I am concerned, Georgia Right to Life has now become the Westboro Baptist Church of the pro-life movement Instead of saving souls, they’d rather stone those who are trying to save souls. We need a new pro-life group in Georgia.” The United States House of Representatives passed legislation on Tuesday evening that would prohibit abortions in the United States after 20 weeks | Read More »
