At the New York Daily News, Michael Cohen presents the strongest form of a talking point liberals have thus far been cautious about deploying: Obama had to lie to us, for our own good, to bring us the wonder and glory of ObamaCare. In selling the health-care plan that bears his name, President Obama has, according to the fact-checking website Politifact, said at least 34 times that “if you like your | Read More »
Making Obamacare Work: Tougher Than Beating The Nazis and Japanese

Minimum Wage Hike the Latest Distraction from Obamacare
As Obamacare hammers the middle class with higher premiums and loss of coverage, Democrats are turning to their age old panic button – demagoguery over the minimum wage. Later this week or next week, the Senate might consider yet another minimum wage increase bill, S. 460. When Pelosi and the Democrats took over Congress in 2007, they raised the minimum wage to $7.25 per hour from | Read More »

Tech at Night: Anonymous and Bitcoin, same as they ever were.
Much like WMATA, I took Veteran’s Day half-off. I did the reading but not the writing.
You know how I’m already throwing words like ‘anarchoterrorist’ around groups like Anonymous? Well now they’re siding with Hamas in Gaza against Israel and all doubt is removed.

The working wage
Every time I’ve gotten into a written or verbal discussion about minimum wage laws (or the relatively new crusade for a “living wage,” which is another exercise of compulsive power beyond what the law requires, premised on the idea that business owners who obey the minimum wage laws are nonetheless greedy villains) someone objects that people “deserve” so much better than the paltry whatever-dollars-per-hour, and | Read More »
Two pictures that show the utter mendacity of anti-gun websites.
This is a time where two pictures are worth more than a thousand words each:
The 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month
