Rules and a treasure trove of information.
In the Dark Knight, Joker tells Batman that to get the truth he will have to break his one rule. In essence he is telling Batman he would have to kill him to stop him. While Batman ultimately is able to beat the Joker, he still loses. We as Conservatives have one rule we live by. We refuse to destroy our morals and principals | Read More »

Looking in Depth at the Kaiser Obamacare Poll
For those of you not aware, the Kaiser Family Foundation released a poll recently on how people who bought insurance under Obamacare are faring. Unsurprisingly, much of the media has portrayed it as showing a generally positive response to the healthcare law. In particular, they emphasized that about 6 in 10 of the enrollees were previously uninsured. This is all, per the poll, true, but | Read More »
Obamacare Causes 2,130 More Insurance Cancellations in Colorado
Today’s bad news for Obamacare comes from Colorado. Thanks to the state GOP’s Tumblr (yes that platform has a real use), we now know that the ACA has caused the cancellation of 2,130 more insurance policies in the state.

Oklahoma Senate Primary and Mississippi Run-off
Tomorrow is the Oklahoma GOP primary and it’s running hot right now with T.W. Shannon and James Lankford. More than likely there’ll be a run-off which would be in August based on tight polling of late. I have high hopes Shannon will at least force E GOPer Lankford into a run-off and then from there defeat him in the run-off two months from now. He’ll | Read More »

Absolute power corrupts comprehensively
Everyone knows Lord Acton’s warning about how “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” It also has a way of corrupting comprehensively. Somehow the generations that grew up reciting Acton got the idea that if power is dispersed among many people, rather than being vested in a single monarch or dictator, corruption can be minimized. We are in the middle of a long | Read More »
Louisiana should dispense of Senator Indispensable
Indispensable (adj) 1: not subject to being set aside or neglected 2: absolutely necessary : essential I truly believe that Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) has reached a level of self-centeredness that would make even the Narcissist-in-Chief sitting in the White House proud. As she was preparing last April for her 4th senate term in a state significantly more conservative and Republican then when she won | Read More »
Under ObamaCare Scheme, Union Bosses Win While Workers And Taxpayers Lose
Back in 2009, when union bosses and their Democrat minions in Congress rushed through passage of the so-called Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare), it was ‘d*mn the consequences! We need to pass ‘healthcare for all NOW!’ However, while union bosses claimed a victory, their members are now learning the hard lesson that their union bosses’ actions have consequences—intended and unintended. Worse, while workers are suffering | Read More »
The immediate dividends of Cantor’s defeat
Over at Talking Points Memo, their “senior congressional reporter,” a guy named Sahil Kapur, bemoans Eric Cantor’s loss. This has to be taken with a grain of salt as Kapur was one of the “journalists” who criticized Matt Drudge for reporting he’d paid Obamacare taxes. For the sake of argument, we’ll assume that Kapur knows more about Congress than he does about economics or tax | Read More »

Obama is now truly a 2nd term president
A recent Gallup poll now shows for the first time ever, a majority of Americans view Obama unfavorably as a person. His favorability has dipped below 50 before (like during the healthcare.gov website blowup), but never has his unfavorability drifted over 50%. His job approval also from Gallup is -13 points (specifically 41-54 positive). RealClearPolitics daily average has him at negative 11 point slide. Typically a 2nd | Read More »
Why the GOP needs to modernize, not moderate their positions
To those in the GOP saying we need to become more moderate, or which really means more liberal, I say this; no. The GOP does not need to become more moderate, in fact, it’s the exact opposite.

Dr. Ben Carson’s alternative to Obamacare – Part Two
In the usual back and forth between the Democrats who want socialized medicine and the rest of the world who don’t, the Saul Alinsky-ites of the left often rail about the lack of an alternative from the Republicans. Besides the fact that this is total bovine fecal matter—Bobby Jindal’s proposal for example—there have been many alternatives offered to improve our previous system without nuking it | Read More »
