Review: 2009 documentary “What’s the Matter with Kansas?” Buckle up.
Sometimes being right is personally rewarding, sometimes it’s of financial benefit, and sometimes, unfortunately, it’s just downright painful. I recently wrote an article, “What’s Still The Matter With Thomas Frank?” about the upcoming (at the time) documentary by filmmakers Laura Cohen and Joe Winston, inspired by Thomas Frank’s 2004 bestselling book, “What’s the Matter with Kansas?” The article I wrote caused a minor brouhaha with | Read More »
What’s Still The Matter With Thomas Frank?
Ah, Kansas, the home of hard working, god-fearing, regular average Americans. You would never know that if you read Thomas Frank’s bestselling book “What’s the Matter With Kansas?” Frank paints the picture of the plains state as a land of conservative morons who self abuse themselves by following evil Republicans, who use trickery to create a backlash effect to past liberal doctrines. As a Kansan | Read More »
Are Guillotines and Gibbets Being Built by People Across America
Government must never pick winners and losers, or it will turn losers into winners. What redress shall the people have, when the very system has slipped into such mania. By Fiat, the government can do nothing but harm. How can the same people who plundered the House Bank and embezzled from the Congressional House Post Office now manage Economic Recovery? Go see for yourself. Search | Read More »

It’s Only Wendesday: How Many Sacred Trusts Can be Violated in 1 Week?
Now I am spitting mad. The AIG bonuses made me almost mad enough to write, but hearing the Speaker’s proposed solution, a 90% tax on the individuals receiving the bonuses, I’ve just gone totally ballistic. Sure, AIG should return funds equal to the government. But over-taxing the individuals who received them is just piling outrage on top of outrage. This was caused by the | Read More »
Talk about the law of unintended consequences. Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid and Barney Frank are outraged over the $165 million in bonuses paid to the executives at AIG. They and other in Congress are pushing for new legislation that will single-out the AIG execs to get the money back. According to some, that’s a bad idea:
Accountability & Viability
On Fox Business Channel this afternoon, democrat “leaders” from both houses of congress crowded around a microphone to talk about “viability & accountability” regarding the auto industry crisis. The “leaders” said that no welfare would be given to Detroit’s Big Three until hey provided a detailed plan that paved a road to solvency.
Observations from the Cheap Seats
I turned the radio louder and louder. It can’t be true — but it was. In a brilliant stroke of comedic relief, Senator Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the Big 3 might get their desired bail-out, but they would have to present their business plans in early December to Barney Frank and Chris Dodd for their respective committees to consider.

Democrat’s Hands Are Very Dirty When It Comes To Financial Crisis
If you want to look at the causes of the current financial crisis, look no further than to the Democrats that are now pointing the finger at the Republicans and the Bush Administration. While Bush has made his fair share of mistakes, it is tough to say that he was responsible for the current state of the financial world. It is fairly well accepted that | Read More »
Gut the military! 25% cut coming…
It has long been understood in conservative circles that the real reason for Obama’s desire to wave the white flag and flee Iraq (and Afghanistan) was to shift those billion$ towards his long socialist agenda. Having been on the receiving end of the “coldwar peace dividend” and the 1990’s demolition of our Armed Forces, I have long suspected that a similiar gutting of defense would | Read More »
My Friend Bill Ayers
My Friend Bill Ayers Send Thomas Frank an e-mail and let him hear what you think of his article. [email protected]
“Memory is a motherf*cker,” Ayers warns his readers, in the illiterate style that made him an icon of the New Left.
I have referenced some material that John McCain can use tomorrow night. And I would quote this line: As Bill Ayers once wrote – “Memory is a motherf*cker,” That should get the MSM on the case. Oh, and don’t forget about ACORN,Frank Marshall Davis,Fannie Mae & Freddie Macand Obama & Odinga’s special love for each other Allies in War Excerpt: “In my experience, what drives | Read More »
Three easy things McCain can do at the last debate to stay viable
I didn’t support you in the primary, Sen. McCain. As a matter of fact, you were probably my sixth choice. In no small part, this was because you had shown too much comity in the past toward people who hate my guts. You have only realized in recent days they hate you as well. One thing I never doubted, though, was that you loved your | Read More »

Practical Reaction in Action
The Wall Street Journal is asking for the heads of Chris Dodd and Barney Frank. I think we the people ought to start clamoring for it, too. I see the market tanking and am watching like everyone else. My opinion is that the market is panicked because no one seems to be doing anything about the government corruption that everyone by now knows is the | Read More »
