Get Ready for Torrent of Job-Killing Regulations
There’s nothing like a new batch of environmental, labor, healthcare, and financial regulations to jump start a lethargic economy, right? As The Hill reported yesterday, with Obama’s cabinet in place for his second term, the rogue agencies are ready to rule by executive fiat. These radical new executive nominees are chomping at the bit to regulate our economy to death, over and beyond what has | Read More »
Tech at Night: Bradley Manning only gets 35 years
So, the top story is of course that anti-American anarchist hero Bradley Manning got 35 years. The bad news is with parole he could apparently be out in 10.
The hacker of “Palestine” who broke into Facebook is now getting money raised for him. One wonders if any laws are being broken sending money to someone like that, in a place like that.

Delta Airlines and the $100 Million Costs of Obamacare
Republicans in the United States House of Representatives and Senate claim they will vote to defund Obamacare, but they won’t actually fight for it. What they want to fight for is just a delay of the individual mandate. That’s it. But there is so much more that is so much more onerous about Obamacare. Delta Airlines, in a letter it prepared back in June, outlined | Read More »
SEIU’s Fast-Food Strikers May Legally Be Replaced, Perhaps Even Permanently.
They’re loud. They’re boisterous. They’re the SEIU…and they’re not as bright as they think. The fast-food workers who are being pushed by the SEIU to take to the streets in a “nationwide” strike on August 29th, as part of the SEIU’s four-year old plan to collect union dues from the fast-food industry’s 3.7 million workers, have placed themselves in a precarious position legally. As part | Read More »
The Problem Isn’t Racism Or Guns
I’ve followed the sad story of Australian jogger Christopher Lane who was gunned down by three “bored teens” in Oklahoma a few days ago. His girlfriend is left heartbroken, his country understandably outraged. The Deputy Prime Minister of Australia has called for a boycott of the US. “It is another example of murder mayhem on Main Street,” former Australian deputy Prime Minister Tim Fischer told | Read More »
Terrible Side Effect of Detroit Bankruptcy: 50,000 Homeless Dogs
There are many sad stories coming out of Detroit in the wake of its bankruptcy. Entire neighborhoods abandoned, thousands without jobs, a city without services, it’s a depressing and deserted place, a shadow of the the once great Motor City it used to be. Today a story in Bloomberg shines some light on a terrible side effect of Detroit’s economic collapse that many are unaware | Read More »
Life on the margins
Early in his 2012 run for the presidency, Newt Gingrich remarked, “I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering. I don’t think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate.” He was referring specifically to Paul Ryan’s Medicare reform proposals, which led to a bit of tension | Read More »
Bridging the Gap Women’s Summit – Answering The War On Women
If there is anything the Democrat party is good at, it’s building a narrative. And with the press on their side, they have successfully pushed forth some whoppers. A pervading rumor spread by the left, that I am sure both sides tire of hearing, is the GOP “war on women.” How the party who chooses to murder our future women through abortion could accuse the | Read More »
There Are No Moderate Democrat Members of Congress
Senator Mary Landreiu provides yet another data point to support the hypothesis that there are no moderate Democrats in Washington, DC. Give her the opportunity to do so and Senator Mary Landrieu would vote again for ObamaCare. This is despite the fact that the law is making insurance less available for people instead of the opposite. It should surprise nobody that Senator Landrieu and pretty much any other Democratic Senator you asked would feel this way. When given the dilemma of strengthening the government at the people’s expense, the people will always get the hose if the decider in question is a progressive.

IRS Gets Rid of Obamacare Penalties
Hey, guess what!! The Internal Revenue Service has decided to get rid of all the employer and self-employed penalties under Obamacare for those without insurance. That’s right. The penalties are gone. Well . . . at least now they are called “shared responsibility payments.” Not kidding. George Orwell, call your office.
Shiver me timbers! Disney Kingpins Send Popular Pirates Game To Davy Jones’ Locker
It’s a sad day in Tortuga, mates!
A friend forwarded an e-mail last night that stated that Disney has decided to shut down Pirates of the Caribbean Online on–of all days*–September 19, 2013.
The news marks the end of six years’ worth of pirate quests, plundering the high seas, as well as taking loot and gold from the evil empire and its corporate crony–the EITC (that’s the East India Trading Company for those of you unfamiliar with pirate lingo).

If Obama Had A Son He Would Not Look Like Christopher Lane
Last Friday a young Australian, Christopher Lane, was gunned down in Oklahoma by three teenagers who, in their words, were bored. While Obama wet himself in his eagerness to comment on the justifiable shooting of Trayvon Martin, he has been silent about this senseless murder. The reason is obvious. Lane is white. His killers aren’t.

#waronwomen Alleged sexual assault, coverup, of minority Democratic staffers in Kentucky.
Oh, look. A Democratic-controlled legislature stonewalling sexual harassment charges by Democratic female staffers* against a white Democratic state legislator. I’d say shocking, except that it’s not. It’s highly offensive, but it’s not shocking. Two longtime Kentucky statehouse employees have filed ethics complaints against Democratic state Rep. John A. Arnold Jr., alleging a pattern of sexual assault and harassment dating back to early 2010. Cassaundra Cooper | Read More »

Keywords: Jeff Bezos, Amazon, Washington Post, circulation, problems.
Sorry about the title, but I want to make sure that Jeff Bezos – more accurately, his research team – sees this post. Mind you, I’m assuming that Bezos plans to introduce the Amazon customer service paradigm to the Washington Post, but surely this is not an unreasonable assumption, hey? Anyway, on to the purpose for this post. The Washington Post is doing it again | Read More »
