“No law can give me the right to do what is wrong.” -Abraham Lincoln A Moral Nation and a Crossroad In Post #1 , the “Introduction” to RIGHT and WRONG, Not Left and Right, America’s Third Option – a manuscript — opens with these words from Alexis de Tocqueville’s 1831 Democracy in America: “America is great because she is good.

His Idea: Why Did Barack Obama Propose It?
Today, Barack Obama spoke out about the pending sequestration flanked by first responders and others. What he did not mention was that sequestration was President Obama’s idea. Today, President Obama said: Emergency responders like the ones who are here today — their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded. But sequestration was his idea. Border Patrol agents will see | Read More »
Barack Obama to actively campaign against the sequester THAT HE HIMSELF PROPOSED.
And he’s going to do it with the usual living props, too: “President Barack Obama will once again call on members of Congress to avoid the mandatory spending cuts due to hit at the end of the month, joined by first responders whose jobs may be on the line, according to a White House official.” Some thoughts on this: This is remarkably small-ball for a | Read More »
The Breathtaking Greed of the Self-Proclaimed Cassandra
The Breathtaking Childishness of the Self-Proclaimed Cassandra by Michael Goodell http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com It still being too cold to Reoccupy Wall Street, tens of thousands of baristas and grad students descended upon the nation’s capital yesterday to protest the perpetually proposed Keystone XL pipeline. It was your typical anti global warming protest, “held in biting winds and near-freezing temperatures,” according to Jim Snyder of Bloomberg News. It | Read More »
Dr. Ben Carson’s Biblical Life Lessons as High School ROTC Cadet Colonel
Why does Dr. Carson care so fervently and so deeply? It is quite obvious. He loves America and all that God has given him the ability to do and to helps others with. Dr. Carson has insisted all along, “I have to come to realize that God does not want to punish us, but rather, to fulfill our lives. God created us, loves us and wants to help us to realize our potential so that we can be useful to others.”

The Cruelty of the Minimum Wage
In his State of the Union speech Tuesday, President Obama called for an increase in the federal minimum wage, gloating that it had been endorsed even by his vanquished moderate Republican opponent in the 2012 campaign. A minimum wage increase is not needed, and would harm those it’s supposed to help.
Empty rhetoric and meaningless lines: the Obama non-presidency
After Tuesday night’s State of the Union (5 down, 3 to go!), nothing has changed: Barack Obama remains a Marxist caricature, his presidency vapid by historical standards, and his leadership style exemplar of fecklessness… You wouldn’t know it by the applause in the House chamber, nor by the booming economy that never stopped booming around the Beltway, but this recovery is no recovery outside the | Read More »
Tech at Night: Thailand succeeding, Anonymous failing, Ben Howe asking a fair question about Google
I’m constantly pointing out how New Zealand is making it itself into a bit of an anti-American legal haven, but they’re not the only ones who have a history of that. Thailand has had issues, so many that the government had to declare a Year of IP Protection, with renewed enforcement to go with it. And as it turns out, they have a long way to go, but even US industry groups recognize the progress. That’s good to see.
I imagine they don’t harbor fugitives like Kim Dotcom, either. Who may or may not drink 10 liters of Coke every day, then blame the eeevil Americans for the consequences.

Healthcare Paid for With Unicorn Farts
There will be many words from many people about much of the President’s State of the Union speech from last night.I will only focus on one line, which distinctly highlights again just how out to lunch the man is when it comes to real healthcare reforms in this country.During his speech the President said this: We’ll bring down costs by changing the way our government | Read More »
Ooh, that *scary* Barack Obama’s gonna go after the GOP tonight!
Now, this is rich: Here’s what we know about President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night: It will include some news — as in new challenges aimed at Congress — and enough rhetoric about economic growth and job creation to sound familiar to most Americans who worry about continued 8 percent unemployment. The president’s speech, described by White House officials as an expansion | Read More »
Google: The Democrats’ Private Intelligence Agency
Last week, Neil Stevens raised the alarm about Google selling out conservatives on policy issues. He’s right, but a number of conservatives and Republicans think there is an even bigger problem for GOP. Remember that enormous, sophisticated data operation the Obama campaign had? The one that gave them massive daily data on public opinion trends in almost every segment of potential voters. It’s almost as if Democrats | Read More »
Tech at Night: Ronulans and Bronys get wronged. No, really. Also, Dems wrong on Cybersecurity again.
The UN’s WIPO is an established, but controversial, arbiter of Internet domain name/trademark disputes. So I find it absolutely hilarious that Ron Paul is using it to go after his own supporters. This is even sillier than Hasbro shutting down My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic, the game that raised thousands of dollars for cancer research.
Just because we have the right to do something, it doesn’t mean that it is right to do that thing. Sometimes exerting your rights to their fullest extent just isn’t the right thing to do, and some sort of solution should be found that’s win-win. Especially when we’re raising money for cancer, as in the case of MLP: Fighting is Magic in the Evo contest.

Tennessee Representative Joe Carr– A Rising GOP Star
Keep your eye on Joe Carr, a rising GOP star and tea party favorite in the Tennessee House who is exploring a congressional campaign for Tennessee’s 4th district. The seat is currently held by Scott Desjarlais, an ethically challenged Republican, who encouraged his ex-wife to have multiple abortions and mislead voters in the last election to cover up his past. RedState contributor Daniel Horowitz presented a strong | Read More »

Whose side is Google on? We’re going to find out this year.
A few years ago, Google was deeply in bed with the left wing activists like Moveon.org and Free Press pushing for Internet regulation. When Obama was elected, Google got even more deeply embedded with both the left and the government. At this point, Republicans began paying more attention to Google and Google realized it had a political problem.
So, after years of lining up with the left to demand more government regulation of the internet, Google changed course. (“Google cozies up to the GOP”) Google promoted their Republican lobbyists, hired Republican consultants, sucked up to conservative organizations and even hired a squishy Republican, Susan Molinari (R-MSNBC) to run their DC office.
But if they were playing footsie with Republicans, Google was still sleeping with the Democrats.

The Tipping Point
There is no permanence in politics. Democrats patting themselves on the back at a job well done will at some point be drowning their sorrows in beer as Republicans again talk about their ridiculous fantasy of a permanent Republican majority (this time without steel tariffs). People shift over time. Pendulums swing. And in the age of instantly lame ducked Presidents upon their swearing in for | Read More »
