Boehner Hires Fox to Guard Immigration Hen House
Here is the latest proof that the elected Republican leaders in Washington are cut from the same cloth as the opposition. Speaker John Boehner hired a new immigration policy director. Presumably, the Republican House leader would hire someone who will push an alternative policy to the Democrat’s insatiable quest for amnesty, right? Wrong. Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, is taking on a new and formidable | Read More »
@BarackObama breaks through the 40% floor. …Downwards.
Feast your eyes on this one, folks: Mark this day: Obama’s approval hits the 30s in RCP for the 1st time. http://t.co/GJLlsJDYKI pic.twitter.com/ZbfCHS6pi6 — Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) December 3, 2013 For those without picture access, it shows that Barack Obama has dipped below an average 40% job approval rating on RCP. That more or less means that any policy-making that the Democrats want to | Read More »
Poverty and free will
Once again, Pope Francis has criticized what he perceives as the excesses of capitalism, offering a challenge that every champion of economic liberty should respond to. In fact, we should be grateful for these challenges. The Pope gives us a whetstone upon which our reason and moral arguments can be sharpened. I don’t mean to be too critical of Pope Francis – whose comments, delivered | Read More »
Hey Britain, You SUCK.
No I’m not talking about Piers Morgan, although thanks for that. I was just wondering when you turned into North Korea? Seriously, I missed the memo. I mean I know I get busy with the kids and all but I’m not sure how I missed this story before you did your dirty work. That is, before you TOOK A BABY FORCIBLY FROM A MOTHER’S WOMB! | Read More »

Say Merry Christmas and annoy a Liberal
ObamaCare is smoldering in rubble, and we should expect the Democrats to jump onto something – anything – that will give them a chance to stop talking about it. That’s why it was unsurprising to watch the Democrat Party launch themselves into a complete meltdown yesterday over a tee shirt sold in the National Republican Congressional Committee online store. The GOP committee, though, isn’t backing down. “Happy | Read More »
Tech at Night: I hope your Thanksgiving went well. Defense Department engages in large scale copyright infringement.
Seems like I’m always coming up with excuses not to post, but I knew nobody would read if I posted over Thanksgiving, so I just ate ham instead. I’m now at risk of turning into bacon, I’ve had so much.
Oops. The Department of Defense signed a deal with Apprticity to buy 500 user licenses and a number of server licenses of its software. But after the Army let slip during a presentation that “thousands” of users were in the system, the government’s large-scale copyright infringement exposed. Apptricity and the Obama administration settled for $50 million.
This is your periodic reminder that kids don’t belong on the Internet. The Internet is every sex predator on Earth, all hiding in your kid’s computer or phone. Be careful out there.

Today’s topics: global warming, advent trees, Super Bowl ads, and das #WHYouth. BONUS: Picture of my puppy!
No, @barackobama will not fire anybody over #obamacare. Or anything else.
I understand Ed Morrissey’s point, here… A competent executive would have made examples of a few people long ago as a message to the rest to improve their work. The problem is that we don’t have competent executives in this administration, starting at the top. Obama won legislative achievements in his first term without any operational success, which went unnoticed because either the metrics for | Read More »
Macy’s Racy Thanksgiving Day Parade
The most uncomfortable part of my Thanksgiving has, for the last couple of years, been a little trick my father taught me about how to keep the turkey from drying out while cooking. I have to make a slice between the skin and the meat and then stuff tabs of butter under the turkey’s skin. I use an entire stick of butter and place them | Read More »

Update on Internet Sales Taxes
Today, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear Amazon.com/Overstock.com’s challenge to the NY affiliate nexus law, also known as the Amazon tax. On September 19, the American Legislative Exchange Council filed an amicus curiae brief with the Court based on our long-standing policy of supporting the physical presence rule. Ironically, the Court announced its decision on Cyber Monday. This is disappointing because it leaves unsettled | Read More »

The GOP: A Choice, not an Echo
Well, it appears that we are on the same page as the establishment with one important goal. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor told the Richmond Times-Dispatch “America needs a Republican Party.” Amen! We’ve been saying for years that America needs a bold choice, not a faint and pathetic echo. Unfortunately, it seems that Cantor plans to achieve that goal by counterintuitively acting more like the | Read More »
