The FCC is looking to dictate outcomes in industry

    I’ve been saying it all along, that the FCC wants to dictate outcomes in its Net Neutrality power grab. They want to pick who wins and who loses in the market. Now the FCC’s own wireless competition report said it, per Reason: Page five of the report, for example, explains that its purpose is to provide “data that can form the basis for inquiries into | Read More »

    The latest FCC lie

    Having laid the groundwork for price controls and content censorship on the Internet in America, the FCC desperately needs to justify their reasoning for the Title II deem-and-pass reclassification of ISPs. So, they’re just going to start lying about stuff. The latest lie apparently is that the wireless market isn’t competitive. Here’s why that’s a lie. Wireless market leader Verizon only has 31% of the | Read More »

    The April Rasmussen Trust numbers.

    I’ve been trying to do this post for a few days (Rasmussen usually puts these numbers up before it does a formal article). Short version: eight out of ten for the GOP, but the Democrats made up lost territory across the board.

    OMG! My Phone Is a LIAR!

    RCP conveys Obama’s idea that iPads, Xboxes, etc. bombard us with all kinds of content, ‘some of which don’t rank all that high on the truth meter’.  And Friedman, (who I used to love, but now regard as a crazy guy abusing a bully pulpit) now tells boomers that the tooth fairy is dead. Now I am a serious student of nuance y’see, and I | Read More »

    What Gallup *didn’t* do with their enthusiasm poll.

    Gallup just published a poll on voter enthusiasm, broken down by age. The main point – younger voters are showing fairly typical enthusiasm levels towards the 2010 elections (i.e., low ones) – is interesting (and entertaining), but there’s another important bit that did not get particularly addressed. And it’s an even more entertaining point.

    Rasmussen succumbs to snark.

    Rasmussen usually makes a good-faith effort to avoid being sardonic, but sometimes they just can’t help themselves (bolding mine): …voters are closely divided over Congress’ most important role: 49% say it’s passing good legislation, while 43% see it as preventing bad legislation from becoming law. That’s why 39% of voters say it’s a good thing in today’s political climate to be the Party of No. | Read More »

    Jesus Christ was a progressive liberal….

    Ok so he wasn’t and I am sorry for using an inflamatory title just to get you in here reading, but I am sure you have heard Jesus called this by many on the left. So since you are here lets briefly look at their argument and where they are wrong. Jesus stood against the Roman Empire so he must have been a progressive. Wrong. | Read More »

    The March Rasmussen Trust Numbers.

    Short version: nine out of ten, and the word ‘Pyrrhic’ seems ever-more appropriate when discussing the Democrats’ health care monstrosity. Mar-10 Feb-10 Issue Dem GOP Diff Dem GOP Diff Shift Health Care 37% 53% (16) 42% 45% (3) (13) Education 40% 43% (3) 41% 38% 3 (6) Social Security 36% 48% (12) 39% 42% (3) (9) Abortion 32% 47% (15) 38% 42% (4) (11) Economy | Read More »

    Unpacking the Rasmussen partisan numbers.

    I had read the latest Rasmussen examination on the topic (short version: health care debate increased both the GOP and Democrats’ partisan identification) when I noticed that they had provided a handy table of their polling results over time. I personally feel that this material is more accessible in graph form; so I pulled the results, averaged them by quarter, and graphed the whole thing | Read More »

    While The Boy President Takes Over More Industries….

    There are things happening to our national economy right now that would be in 120 pt font, above the fold and on the front page of The New York Times if a GOP President were in office. They’d sit right there in stark bas-relief next to an obligatory propaganda-shot of The Goober-In-Chief whacking the Bejeezus out of a Titlist with his Calloway Nine-Iron. According to | Read More »

    Brent Budowsky and the poll-watcher’s delusion.

    I don’t normally fisk, but let’s unpack this passage, shall we? This article – called, amusingly enough, “Matt Drudge and the Republican delusion” – was dated March 25th, 2010 (today is March 30th, 2010): Recently a Gallup poll, of course highlighted on Drudge, found that Obama’s numbers had (then) turned more unfavorable than favorable. Presumably this one: 46/48 favorable/unfavorable. This has (now) dramatically changed, unreported | Read More »

    Fools, Bigots And Liars Hide Under The Dems’ ‘Big Blanket’.

    While the nation seethes and counts the days until November, the Marxi-Socialists of the Democratic party and the statists of their stooley press are attempting the badly used-up tactic of manufacturing incidents calculated to bring shadows down on the Republicans, and most particularly the Conservative Patriot movement, or ‘Tea Party’ movement, as they so disparagingly term us. Starting with the ’supposed’ incident of two black | Read More »
