Joe Biden gets a Detroit woman killed.
Good job there, Mr. Vice President: It was shortly before 1 a.m. Nov. 2 and Renisha McBride was involved in an accident with a parked vehicle in Detroit. More than two hours later and six blocks away, she was shot in the face by a man who told police he thought someone was breaking into his Dearborn Heights home. The 54-year-old homeowner, according to police, | 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. It’s amazing that the blood libel exists in some form in the 21st century, but I guess anarchists are just that terrible.
Bitcoin is still a tool for criminals including Silk Road Gangster Ross Ulbricht, who tried to contract a murder to keep his racket going.

Barack Obama’s Iraq
In lamenting the sorry state of Meet the Press these days, Dave Weigel reminds me of a Barack Obama quote worth pointing out to Republicans. In an interview with the New Yorker magazine, Barack Obama opined on Iraq, “There’s an old saying in politics: when your opponent’s in trouble, just get out of the way … in political terms, I don’t think that Democrats are | Read More »

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
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of this year in the twenty-first century, we pause to honor our veterans on this Veterans Day and remember that first of the great world wars, which ended the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918. To those who served, we thank you. In Flanders fields the poppies | Read More »

Repeal is the Only Fix
There are, winding their way through the House and Senate, several Republican proposals to fix or ameliorate the effects of Obamacare. I get the desire to message. The Republicans are always messaging. Heck, back in 2009, the GOP offered up a series of amendments to contrast Republican ideas on healthcare to Democrat ideas. Senator John Kyl, then the Republican Senate Whip, went on Bill Bennett’s | Read More »

Comparing Man-Made Disasters: The BP Oil Spill and Obamacare
The focus of the reporting on these disasters has been on the failure of execution, but not until you consider the bigger picture, the failure of management, do you achieve any real understanding.

PSA: #Obamacare drawing con-men like rotten meat draws flies.
Don’t believe me? Then maybe you’ll believe that notorious right-wing Tea Party rag The New York Times: To the list of problems plaguing President Obama’s health care law, add one more — fraud. With millions of Americans frustrated and bewildered by the trouble-prone federal website for health insurance, con men and unscrupulous marketers are seizing their chance. State and federal authorities report a rising number | Read More »

The Franklin Center brought together 30 bloggers from around the country. We spent Friday and Saturday learning about and discussing the complicated and sometimes controversial issue of school choice with very knowledgeable experts in the field. The experts | Read More »
How #obamacare is messing up MANY Dem 2016 candidates’ lives.
I mean, obviously it’s going to mess up Joe Biden’s life: he’s the Vice President of the administration who turned the roll-out of the single most iconic representation of the progressive/liberal concept of big government into a prolonged rake-stepping session. And just as obviously it’s going to mess up Hillary Clinton’s life, too: she’s the woman who brought the rake in the first place. Remember: | Read More »
