Small business lessons that Barack Obama never learned…
Last year I was having a conversation with a friend who runs a small business that employs about a half a dozen people and does a little over a million dollars a year in revenue. She came onboard about two years after the recession pummeled the business and they’ve been basically flat since, but they’ve survived, something many of their competitors did not. She was | Read More »
Rand Paul (accurately) notes that Jim Crow was a majoritarian policy, too.
I am probably quite a bit too neoconservative for Senator Paul’s liking, but: no fear. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), in an interview Thursday, likened President Obama’s governing philosophy to the kind of “majority rule” that led to Jim Crow laws and Japanese internment camps. [snip] “The danger to majority rule — to him sort of thinking, well, the majority voted for me, now I’m the | Read More »
Tech at Night: When Snowden wins, America loses. Healthcare.gov is still insecure.
Bitcoin is not really as widely used as its shills want you to think.
Ajit Pai is the man and understand what it means for the courts to be used to quash innovation. As the courts refused to crush the VCR, I want them to leave Aereo alone.
By the way, Healthcare.gov is still at risk. Good thing it’s a miserable failure, though that doesn’t help the poor souls already signed up and at risk in the vulnerable systems.
Democrats want to pass a new law mandating a private-public partnership to track where you and your phone are at all times, in the name of 911 calls. But remind me again how all the Snowden stuff is about privacy and not anti-Americanism and a rollback to 9/10/2001 thinking again. Sure, guys. Sure.

Traitor or Dictator – You Be the Judge
One must think about the many things that are transpiring right in front of our eyes and realize we’re held hostage by a dictator and traitor and so far the laws of our lands haven’t protected Americans or their Country. Something is absolutely wrong with this scenario – we have laws to protect us from traitors and dictators and yet no group or groups of | Read More »
Red State Uprising Questions #3: Understanding Legislation and Barack Obama’s Oath of Office
I’m up to page 57, Chapter 3, in Erick’s book Red State Uprising. Chapter 2 is devoted entirely to some of the Obama presidency. It covers a wide ranging gamete of topics from judicial appointments to TARP, foreign policy, and CIA assignments to name a few. Below are two of the things that popped out at me. There were more but many of them are | Read More »
Robert Gates inadvertently gives us a good look at @barackobama’s war insecurities.
I’m going to show my readers this paragraph, than walk them through it. Background: it’s part of Robert Gates’ memoir on his time as SecDef. Specifically, Gates (with the help of the military brass) was trying to keep Afghanistan from sliding off of the beam under the new administration, and running headlong into the Obama administration’s apparent inherent inability to understand that wars are messy | Read More »
It’s Redistribution, Stupid Per Obama
Obama’s “Promise Zones” – Election Year Wealth Redistribution Scheme http://freepatriot.org/2014/01/10/watch-obamas-promise-zones-election-year-wealth-redistribution-scheme/ The big question for Americans – how do we stop the bloody spending by Obama, Democrats and Republicans? Here’s a brief preview of the past five years and a glimpse of the future. So much for our daily dose of lies from Obama, his administration and the Liberal News media – as a Nation we | Read More »
Politically Convenient President
They’re talking about income equality, poverty, unemployment extensions, the sun, the moon, global warming and all in between hoping that once again they can distract Americans from the real problems. Problems like murder in Benghazi, the Fast and Furious Gunrunner scam, spying on Americans, stealing taxpayer’s money, forcing a healthcare system on us that will cause and is causing financial and physical stress on millions | Read More »
Robert Gates: Traitor Or Patriot? Erickson And Kurtz Discuss
Last night, Redstate’s own Erick Erickson appeared on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor and discussed whether or not Robert Gates’ explosive new book is a betrayal of President Obama and/or is damaging to this country.
Kurtz refers to the contents of the book as a betrayal, and suggests that this type of memoir hampers the ability of the President to do his job. O’Reilly asks if it is not patriotic to let the American people know exactly how the President is dealing with vital issues. …

Obama proposes education mandates his own education can’t meet
In yet another cycle of what’s good for the government goose is not good for you, President Obama’s Department of Education proposes rules for private-sector colleges that his own education at Harvard Law would fail to meet. The new leaner and meaner rules require that students graduate with less than 12% debt-to-income ratio or debt-to-discretionary-income ratio lower than 30%. When President Obama graduated from Harvard Law, he financed that, | Read More »
Women Beware of HRC
Although Hillary Clinton is out trying to recoup the women’s votes she had in 2008, it might behoove her avid followers to review this woman’s sordid past. One can hide and run for a while but sooner or later the past does catch up with us. It’s not propaganda about the murders, suicides and accidental deaths of her business associates, bundlers and colleagues that plague | Read More »
Barack Obama’s broken window economy
It’s awfully strange to see a President simultaneously claim that his economy is (finally) on the mend… while simultaneously demanding yet another “emergency” unemployment extension. Obamanomics is a perpetual unemployment emergency. Five years on, the American economy still can’t rise from its sick bed and pull the IV tube out of its arm. Heckuva job, Obama voters! Of course, they all think it’s George Bush’s | Read More »
Obama delays the budget process yet again
A new report from Congressional Quarterly suggests that ObamaCare isn’t the only item being delayed in the White House these days. Apparently the official White House budget proposal, which is required by law to be submitted to Congress no later than the first Monday of February, is on track to be “at least a month behind” schedule: From the CQ Morning Briefing: WHITE HOUSE BUDGET DELAYED: The | Read More »
@BarackObama decides NOT to be the adult in the room wrt unemployment insurance extension.
You can tell by the fact that he’s demanding here that the House simply agree to allocate the money for another ‘temporary’ three-month extension of unemployment benefits for people unemployed past 26 weeks. The GOP is not adverse to extending benefits, by the way: but the House is fairly insistent that this spending be offset by an equivalent amount of cuts.
There Are Simply Not Enough Moderates To Take On The Tea Party
So, as most of you know, I lean towards the Tea Party. They’re the best thing to happen to the GOP – and American politics – since the Goldwater insurgency in ’64, but I digress. As the shutdown drama subsided last Fall, many on the left – as usual – were relishing in the demise of the Tea Party. Then, Obamacare had a meltdown. Now, | Read More »
