No One Showed Up at Organizing for Action’s Climate Change Rally Because #ScienceSaysSo
If a Climate Change rally fails in the woods and no one is around to hear it, did it really happen? How about in Washington, D.C.?Organizing for Action marched out of Mordor today to demand action on climate change. They held a rally in Washington, D.C. In Washington, of all places, you’d think liberal hipsters could at least depart Starbucks for just a few minutes | Read More »
Organizing for Action Takes on Climate Change Because Jobs Are Not Important
Here in Middle Georgia we have had very few days this year above ninety degrees, which is unusual. It took my zinnias a bit longer than normal to bloom. We have, however, had more than double our normal rainfall. I have saved a good bit of money on not running the sprinkler system. The rosemary, basil, and thyme are doing quite well.

The ‘Abortion Barbie’ Is Running For Governor Of Texas
Wendy Davis, the pro-abortion Texas State Senator, is going to run for governor. Robert Miller, a lobbyist, has heard about the decision, and posted about it yesterday: Credible sources tell me that Sen. Wendy Davis will run for Governor in 2014 and not seek reelection to Texas Senate District 10. It will set up a high stakes match-up with Attorney General Greg Abbott in the November | Read More »

Obamacare Puts Domino’s – And Others – In The Regulatory Crosshairs
Yes, not even pizza is safe from the crosshairs of Obamacare. The Obama administration’s massive federal power grab has the National Restaurant Association (NRA) feeling something of buyer’s remorse for their part in lobbying for Section 4205, which is an onerous regulation that calls for restaurant chains – with more than twenty locations – to label their menus with nutritional information. For example, it’s going | Read More »
President Obama’s auto fatality gaffe
President Obama said some rather strange things during his appearance on The Tonight Show last week, but one gaffe in particular has flown low under the radar. While he was attempting to downplay the resurgence of al-Qaeda, the President said, “The odds of people dying in a terrorist attack obviously are still a lot lower than in a car accident, unfortunately.” This was before he | Read More »
Michelle Obama will be the next Democratic Candidate
The Democratic party is not interested in electing people of substance and ability. While I do not accuse Hillary of having either I would like to point out that is what she ran on in 2008 against Obama. Instead the Democrats elected based on: Likability Oratory skills (nice to listen to regardless of what they say) Good looks Something new In short they elected based | Read More »
Moral Mondays in NC, DC Opulence, and Tent City, NJ hunger games
The moral case against liberal Democrat Obamaism and for free market capitalism Democrats, including the liberal Christian variety in the Tar Heel State, have never been shy about making the moral case for their anti-entrepreneurial welfare state policies and against Republicans who oppose them. If one is against the latest bill demanding more, more and more of the same “stimuli” sold as the antidote to the “mess | Read More »

Tech at Night: TOR hacked. Bradley Manning could get 90 years. Christopher Poole profiting from sick behavior.
For months I’ve been dreaming of the day that NSA could crack TOR. Well, it turns out, they did it. That child pornographer in Ireland I mentioned previously? It sounds like that’s how they got him.
TOR, aka The Onion Router, is a distributed network designed to let people do things online without their actions being traceable back to their locations. It failed.
In more good news, convicted spy Bradley Manning is facing 90 years in prison for working with fugitive rapist Julian Assange and his Wikileaks gang.
This is so disgusting: Users of Christopher Poole’s site 4chan are willfully tormenting the family of a dead teenager. Poole, aka ‘moot’, needs to do something about the sick community on his site. I hold him responsible for his continued failure to act. His site is a hub for criminal and anti-social activity. He does nothing to stop it, instead choosing to profit from it.

David Vitter Fights Back Against Obamacare
I reported yesterday that Senate Republicans and Democrats have declared truce over Obamacare as it relates to congressional staffers and members of Congress themselves. Republicans have decided they will not attack Democrats because they want the exemption too.One member of Congress who is not only enraged by this, but is willing to do something about it, is Louisiana Senator David Vitter. This afternoon he has | Read More »
Grand jobs/tax Bargain must end Obama-EPA wars on coal, Keystone
President Obama famously promised the creation of shovel-ready infrastructure jobs in the first bill ($787B stimulus) he signed soon after his 2009 Inauguration, only to scoff at the “shovel-ready” notion during his 2012 re-election campaign. Yet, in his latest “re-focus” on the economy last week, he once again proposed infrastructure (albeit shovel-neutral) jobs-creation spending as part of his self-described proposal for a “grand bargain” with | Read More »

Tech at Night: A key government cybersecurity role. Chinese trojan horses. ECPA reform held.
I’d have signed a letter against IRFA, the Pandora-backed regulatory bailout.
Government is trying to give advice on security online, including advice on how to deal with breakins. Information exchange is truly a proper cybersecurity role for government. Also important is prosecuting private offenders, and dealing with state offenders.
Though it gets tricky when state offenders include firms selling goods while pretending to be private firms, such as Chinese firms like Lenovo or Huawei.
ECPA reform is being held in the Senate. Leaky Leahy says it’s a Republican doing it. I wonder who? Lindsey Graham? John McCain? I’m not entirely convinced that the bill is necessary, but I don’t think it’s a particularly idea as long as we preserve something along the lines of FISA.
If you really want your email to be private, don’t have it all run through Google.
Turns out Snowden’s final decision to pledge allegiance to United Russia has encouraged a child pornographer in Ireland to follow suit.

The Hillary Clinton conundrum
It is widely assumed that Hillary Clinton is the front-runner for the 2016 Democrat nomination, if not a virtual lock on the candidacy. The only real question is whether Joe Biden puts his boss in a tough spot by launching a doomed campaign to wrestle the nomination away from Hillary. Our “objective” “news” media is already pumping up the Clinton candidacy by scheduling glowing biographies | Read More »
My rather lopsided love/hate relationship with Barack Obama…
Some time ago I was talking with a guy I know and the issue of politics came up followed soon thereafter by the mention of Barack Obama. I instantly said “I hate that guy!” Afterward I wondered if that was really an accurate statement… after some introspection I have to admit, it’s kinda true. I know in a world of political correctness I should maybe | Read More »
It’s up to you to stop ObamaCare
At the RedState Gathering in New Orleans on Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz called for a grassroots effort to persuade Republicans to eliminate funding for President Obama’s health care law. Or as he put it, the “biggest and the most important battle 113th Congress is going to face” — the battle to defund ObamaCare. Senator Cruz told the gathering of Conservative activists that the best way | Read More »
Would GOP cave over any veto threat by Obama-man on a ledge?
Upon what basis does responsible governance require fully funding a program that the President himself has partially suspended? The most persuasive case for not passing a budget that fully funds Obamacare is the rule of law/responsible governance argument that would demand that bills that become laws be fully funded until a future bill becomes law that repeals the former. But, the GOP leadership doesn’t make | Read More »
