Show-Me Madness …. Missouri Attacks Free Speech
What if you were profiled by the police as a terrorist simply because of your political beliefs? A new report entitled “The Modern Militia Movement,” prepared for law enforcement agencies by the Missouri Information Analysis Center, threatens just that. The report doesn’t detail any current criminal activity in Missouri. It does suggest to police, however, that anyone opposing government bailouts, abortion, or the Federal Reserve | Read More »
Guns and The Fairness Doctrine
Kudos to Senators John Ensign (R-NV), John Thune (R-SD), Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Jim DeMint (R-SC) for using the bill to provide a vote in the House of Representatives to the District of Columbia to force votes today on expanding gun rights and trashing the idea of the federal government regulating the radio airwaves. These senators used an unconstitutional bill to essentially treat the District of | Read More »
Political Cartoonists Afraid To Draw Obama
“Without a doubt, people are stepping more gingerly. People are tiptoeing their way through this.”- Ted Rall, liberal editorial cartoonist. Last week’s firestorm over an editorial cartoon at the New York Post is still burning it’s way through the media and the blogosphere, and in the wake of Eric Holder’s declaration that Americans (read: white Americans) are cowards and James Clyburn’s claim that rejection of | Read More »
Bait and Switch Coming with the Fairness Doctrine
Obama and his handlers were very dexterous during the Presidential campaign. The McCain campaign and Republican pundits always seemed to go for the red cape that Obama artfully displayed in obfuscation, and they ended up clumsily slashing at the air with their horns. Bill Ayers, Father Phlager, and Reverend Wright became the cape, and Obama stepped aside with “Hey, I’m a really likable guy, why would you think that any of | Read More »
Camille Paglia defends talk radio
Cross posted to The Political Class. In response to a question labeling the Fairness Doctrine as modern day censorship, CP delivers the goods: If there’s anything that demonstrates the straying of the Democratic Party leadership from basic liberal principles, it’s this blasted Fairness Doctrine — which should be fiercely opposed by all defenders of free speech. Except when national security is at risk, government should | Read More »
The War on Free Speech Has Begun
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has created a petition “to show Rush Limbaugh and all of the Republicans what they’re up against if they start attacking President Obama.” Rush has responded by encouraging folks to leave pro-Limbaugh comments at the petition website. It only took 2 weeks, but the war on free speech has begun. I for one, am ready for a fight. h/t NewsBusters.
Art Criticism (after wandering in the wilderness I have returned)
Many of you may recognize me from last year, where I had been posting my election projections for the Presidential race. A few weeks before the election, I dropped off the face of the earth, admittedly because I had a strong inkling the race had dropped itself right at Obamas feet (and, damn Nate Silver, he was pretty close this time). In the 2009 interim, | Read More »

According to the Seattle Times, “State regulators are wondering whether online political activism amounts to lobbying, which could force Web-based activists to file public reports detailing their finances,” (Can Blogging be Lobbying?) and name their financial backers. As if most bloggers have financial backers. Does my husband count? Do I have to make a disclosure?
And so it starts in Australia………..Websites blocked for content.
Any time I hear “it’s for the children” the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, my inner voice screams “B.O.H.I.C.A.” and a little bit more freedom is lost somewhere.While I’m of the opinion that child pornographers have voided their right to live, who are the people, or what governing body gets to decide what’s allowed and how did they get their positions | Read More »

Santa Clause isn’t PC
To anyone has been living out from underneath a large rock in the last 40 years, it’s not surprising that free speech is nothing more than a cute little needlepoint saying. It’s so adorable when a young buck espouses free speech. It’s almost like believing in Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny. Interestingly enough they’re both really creepy. Thanks to the moronification of the country | Read More »
A Question For Obama Supporters
Originally posted at Hang Right PoliticsHere are some questions I have about Obama, his ideology, and how those shape his policies:-Obama has called for a national police at least as strong as the military. Why?-Obama’s supporters have personally trashed anyone who criticizes the candidate, including the media. They use every means within their power to destroy individual lives. Why?-Nobody can dispute Freddie/Fannie’s role in our | Read More »
