Who Exactly Wanted to Invest Social Security in Stock Market?
The Democrats are hoping to use the turmoil in the stock market to scare seniors in a typical election year smear. They’re charging that if Republicans had their way, all their Social Security would be “tied up” in the stock market. Of course, it is simply not true, as this article in The Politico shows. However, there is one politician who promoted investing Social Security | Read More »
New Michigan Census Data: Don’t Blame the Big 3
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. We know we’ve got a pretty rough set of economic conditions here in Michigan. We have a broken budget, a corrupt and criminal leadership in Detroit, an ineffective (bordering on goofy) (lack of) leadership in Lansing and a Governor who seems more interested in shooting economic recovery in the foot than in giving it a welcoming home.

Further Explorations of Left-Wing Psychology
Readers of my occasional little essays know that I have often used the phrase “Orwellian” to describe Democrat claims, and my nickname for Big Brobama derives from Orwell’s 1984.

How has this happened? | Read More »
Self Immolation or Democrat’s Economic Plan? Can I get back to you?
Years ago in the salad days of my youth and naiveté, I was part of a merger team. During that tenure we were working on a critical deal which involved some in-depth, albeit brief in duration analysis. After what seemed like an extraordinarily short, inadequate period one senior executive asked the group if from our perspective we should close the deal. This “deal” was not | Read More »
Why I got a haircut and became a Republican
(Me, circa 1997) I used to be a left-wing Democrat. I was an intern for Carol Moseley-Braun. I studied with Cornel West. I voted for John Kerry and Al Gore–and in 1996 I even wrote in Ralph Nader rather than vote for Clinton, who was too centrist for me. Then I grew up.
Worst Congress in History
In 2006, the Democrats rode a wave of anti-Iraq war sentiment, GOP ethics scandals, and an unpopular President Bush into a stunning majority. Nancy Pelosi was given the helm by the vote of the new majority. I think its worth reminding the country of their record: They promised to end the Iraq war. The Democratic Congress, having promised what they could not possibly achieve, failed | Read More »
Imagine there’s no Democrats. It’s easy if you try…
Did you ever notice how Democrats like to vilify guns, religion, and corporations for political gain? Since when have any of these things ever been responsible for harming anyone? It’s like those people in Scranton, always say, “Religion doesn’t kill people. People kill people.” I suggest Democrats get a clue and focus on the real problems, which are those aspects of human nature that leads | Read More »

Does Socialism Work?
So I was wondering why the democrats are so bent on imposing socialism on America? Winston Churchill said *“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” * He also said, “The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal | Read More »

Joe Biden: More Hypocritical Than Most
Last October, Barack Obama explained why he did not wear an American flag pin on his lapel: “The truth is that right after 9-11 I had a pin,” Obama said. “Shortly after 9-11, particularly because as we’re talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security. | Read More »
