Debunking the latest liberal myth
Liberal myths often quickly become talking points for the Democrats, and even as conservatives punch holes in them, the Left simply patches them up and floats them again. Such is the case with the latest liberal myth/Democrat talking point – that oil companies aren’t drilling on the lands they currently hold: “Big Oil is more interested in pumping up prices and pumping up their own | Read More »
Democrats don’t believe in ethics reform
How did this not get more attention? With reporting deadlines looming, congressional officers have issued revised guidelines that ease some of the lobbying disclosure requirements enacted last year. The revised guidance, issued by the Clerk of the House and Secretary of the Senate, relaxed the rules for disclosure of lobbyist contributions to parties at this summer’s Democratic and Republican national conventions, among other changes. So, | Read More »
Republican Registration Drops Across Most of Country
The easiest way to measure the overall partisan makeup of the country is to ask people. Many pollsters do this with regularity. Rasmussen does this on a monthly basis with a massive sample. Here are some of those numbers: DATE YEAR: R% D% I% Diff%Nov 2004: 37.1 38.6 24.3 -1.6Nov 2006: 31.4 37.5 31.2 -6.1Nov 2007: 32.5 37.4 30.2 -4.9 Jan 2008: 33.1 38.7 28.2 | Read More »
Oil drops for third day because of economics 101.
As much as we all have wanted to string speculators up by their thumbs (and they do have it coming), the drop in oil over the past three days has been because of downward pressure being placed on the market by fundamentals.
Speaking Of Total Failures, Nancy…
Apparently, our dear incompetent Nancy Pelosi believes President Bush…personally…is a complete failure: “You know, God bless him, bless his heart, president of the United States, a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people on the economy, on the war, on energy, you name the subject,” Pelosi replied. She then tsk-tsked Bush for “challenging Congress when we are trying to sweep up after his | Read More »
Democrat Lies About ‘Rights’
It’s amazing to see how a Democrat so warps the word “right” these days. Last week California Democrat Rep. Brad Sherman was only the latest Democrat to take the word “right” and misuse it for his disgusting, partisan ends when he decided that it was a “right” to unionize, but NOT a “right” to eschew a union. Sherman proposed last week that Section 14(b) of | Read More »

“Let them eat cake” Democrats
By Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report and The HinzSight Report The crisis can’t wait till Inauguration Day, 2009. America is not a TV show whose plot hinges on what camera angle CNN decides to use to make McCain look old and short and Obama look like he has a clue. Americans are hurting and the fact that we haven’t had two consecutive | Read More »
AceTradamus….Hey…If GameCock Can Do It Why Can’t I?
I’m seeing polls today that show public support for domestic energy production approaching 75%. Given these glaring poll numbers, It’s time for me to make a prediction concerning this issue and the handwriting on the wall. Read On:
New York Times Shocker: Only 31% of Whites Have Favorable Opinion of Obama
As a rough estimate, if you believe the country is split 50/50, that means all of the white Republicans and 40% of the white Democrats do not have a favorable opinion of the Democrat nominee. Can you win a presidential election with those numbers? McCain has a 35% favorability rating. The real kicker for Hillary supporters is that their candidate has a favorability of 40% | Read More »

Yesterday’s Lesson: Lower taxes and labor freedom create jobs!
Rough day for Michigan families yesterday. Despite (lackluster) efforts at job creation and retention in the auto industry the day brought one round of bad news after another. The same day General Motors announced plans to reduce their payroll by a full twenty-percent, estimated at well over 3,000 jobs, we get word that Chattanooga, Tennessee, will be the new home of a Volkswagen plant, a | Read More »
Big Labor in Michigan as told by John McClane
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. Lansing insider publication MIRS reported last night that the AFL-CIO is now willing to take some of the credit for bankrolling the lefty extremist Reform Michigan Government Now vivisection of state government. The union’s President, Mark Gaffney, even admits to helping his pal Mark Brewer write the darn thing in an undiscosed smoke filled backroom somewhere around the state | Read More »
Democrats Say Obama is Insular, Uncooperative, and Inattentive
Yet more evidence that Democrats love President Bush. They say Bush is arrogant, inarticulate, insular, uncooperative, and inattentive. So what do they do? They nominate the closest equivalent to their allegations. Hey, imitation is the highest form of flattery! Nonetheless, it is humorous to pick through their concerns: – Until a mailing that went out in the past few days, Obama had done little fundraising | Read More »
A Sneak Peak at Democrats in Control
I was thinking earlier today about the huge numbers of Democratic distortions and outright deceptions swirling around in the news. Nancy Pelosi calling drilling a GOP hoax and continuing to blame Republicans for gas prices; Dennis Kucinich and other Democrats deflecting attention from their historic 91% DISapproval rating by renewing calls for W to be impeached; their deafening silence on how badly the war in | Read More »
