UAW Cartoon Compares Republican Party To ISIS Terrorists
Below is a tasteless cartoon that was forwarded to me last evening comparing the Republican party to ISIS terrorists who behead civilians. It was sent to UAW members (of at least one UAW local) in Michigan and, most likely, paid for by union members’ dues–many of them Republicans’ dues. With between 30-40% of union members voting Republicans, one would think that unions would not be | Read More »
Throwing Barack Obama Under the Bus
People have been expendable to Barack Obama for a very long time. As soon as they become inconvenient to him, they meet the underside of the Obama bus. Barack Obama is now about to meet the underside of Hillary Clinton’s bus. The only chance Hillary Clinton has of winning in 2016 is to blame shift to Barack Obama and sacrifice him for the good of | Read More »
ObamaCare, that most callous of ‘reforms’

October 7, 1571. The Battle of Lepanto. Christendom Saved.
Today we look at the weak, fragmented, corrupt, and thoroughly benighted Islamic world with contempt… and a small amount of fear. That was not always the case. From the eight century A.D. the Islamic world held the whip hand in what is now the Mediterranean basin, suffering only occasional setbacks, like the Battle of Tours, while conquering the historically Christian populations of North Africa, the Levant, | Read More »
US Army in action in Iraq– and still no SOFA
On Sunday the US involvement in Iraq, in its current manifestation, escalated: The United States sent attack helicopters into combat against Islamic State targets west of Baghdad on Sunday, the first time low-flying Army aircraft have been committed to fighting in an engagement that the Obama administration has promised would not include “boots on the ground.” The U.S. Central Command, in a statement about U.S. | Read More »
Leon Panetta: Obama to blame for Iraq mess
The new memoir titled “Worthy Fights” by former Secretary of Defense and former CIA Director Leon Panetta is causing a stir. In the book, Panetta firmly lays the responsibility for the current mess in Iraq at Obama’s doorstep: “My fear, as I voiced to the President and others,” Panetta writes, “was that if the country split apart or slid back into the violence that we’d | Read More »

The Worst Possible GOP Candidate for 2016: Lindsay Graham
It took two insignificant events for to become the worst possible GOP candidate for 2016. First, John Huntsman had to become independent in the proud tradition of Lincoln Chafee, and then !RONPAUL! had to hang-up whatever it is that certified nut-jobs hang up when they retire. With the entrenched professional nobodies out of the way, there was a hole in the GOP roster. The position | Read More »
Mark Pryor Won’t Answer a Simple Question
, running for re-election to the Senate in Arkansas, actually ran an advertisement attacking his Republic opponent blaming for the Ebola crisis. I am not kidding. Katie Hunt of MSNBC asks a simple question: does he think the President has appropriately handled the response to the Ebola crisis. Pryor’s (non)response is comedy gold. Just unbelievable. Again — accused his opponent of causing the Ebola crisis | Read More »

You Will Be Made to Care: The Semblance of Normalcy
Having said I think gay marriage nationally is inevitable given the Supreme Court’s decision yesterday to not take any cases on it right now, a number of people questioned both my conservatism and my faith. One need not abandon either to live in the real world. It is coming. But it is important to understand why. It is not just that gay rights activists want | Read More »
Tech at Night: Marriott gets off easy for its Denial of Service attacks
Have to say, sometimes enforcement of things is rather inconsistent in this country.
If you or I (or Aaron Swartz) were caught making unauthorized access to other people’s computer equipment, to engage in a Denial of Service attack, we’d risk criminal charges. Marriott International? Not so much.
