Seattle Councilwoman-Elect On Boeing: “The workers should take over the factories…”
At a rally on Monday, Seattle’s newly-elected Socialist councilwoman, Kshama Sawant, accused Boeing of “economic terrorism” should the company decide not to build the new 777X in Puget Sound and urged the union members to “take over the factories.” Her comments follow the members of the Machinists’ union in Puget Sound rejecting a Boeing offer that had been negotiated secretly with the company by IAM | Read More »
Tech at Night: No Cybersecurity Executive Order, Please. Or any new regulation, really.
Look, 11,000 pages of regulations have been added under Barack Obama. Consider that the Federal Register only needed 71,000 pages total in 1975. These regulations are being added without transparency, as well.
This is too much, and he wants to grow government further with an executive order on Cybersecurity, which is rightly opposed by a group of Senators in the Wall Street Journal. Enough is enough.

Tech at Night: Same old, same old. Obama administration run amok.
I know, it’s terrible, but after missing Friday due to the RedState upgrade, I feel behind tonight and so am just going to have to speed through some of this tonight.
Ah, the ARRA, aka the Porkulus. Picking Internet winners and losers in Colorado, and probably nationwide in many “little” stories the national media chooses not to pick up.

Daily Links – March 19, 2012
Today is March 19th. On this date in 2003, President George Bush announced that American and coalition forces were “in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger.” Also on this date in 2011, President Obama failed to address the nation about the beginning of operations in Libya. On this date in | Read More »
Lee Stranahan: “The media has woefully misrepresented the occupy movement.”
“All a journalist has to do is go up and go ‘hi, how are things going?’ and people will tell them the truth. But you don’t see any reports” The above is an interview of Big Government’s Lee Stranahan by Tony Katz on behalf of The Franklin Center. In the first half of the video, Stranahan discusses the Pigford case, and how he came to | Read More »
Occupiers lose Battle of Wardman Park
The basic premise of the Occupations, including Occupy DC, is that they, the “99%”, are not being heard in elections, so they must impose themselves on spaces where they are not welcome in order to force their message out. It’s a strategy reminiscent of George Lincoln Rockwell’s Phase One for the American Nazi Party, and I expect it to be just as ineffective at achieving | Read More »
ILWU backpeddling from job-killing Occupy attack on West Coast?
Background (H/T: Instapundit) next Monday there is supposed to be an organized shutdown of the West Coast’s port facilities by the Occupy movement – if you’re wondering why the heck they’re going after port facilities, it’s because the Occupy movement has a lot of anti-globalization sorts in it these days, and those people hate free trade with a passion that normal people reserve for rapists | Read More »
Whither Occupy? (Probably not the ballot box.)
This New York magazine article on the Occupy movement is interesting, and that’s not a euphemism: author John Heilemann is not only aware that the supposedly leaderless movement has plenty of self-appointed (and I’d add, ‘imposed’) leaders to it, but he’s even willing to admit to it in writing. Heilemann also has some pretty good insights on the Occupy movement, and the Democratic establishment, and | Read More »
Stuck in traffic on November 17th? Look for the union label!
The n-dimensional geniuses over at SEIU (Michigan) have decided to link up with the Occupy Ringworm people in declaring November 17th to be Bridge Action Day – which should, of course, be more accurately characterized as Bridge Inaction Day. The idea is that all these public sector union folks will take an unofficial day off from their jobs – which are probably a lot more | Read More »
Occupy DC: Corporate-funded, corporate-controlled, corporate-aimed.
This ABC News article is correct enough, as it goes: On the surface, the “Occupy the Koches: Guerilla Drive-In” event looked like any other “Occupy” movement protest against the proverbial 1 percent of the population who hold the nation’s wealth. But a confederation of long-established progressive political advocacy groups — the Campaign for America’s Future, Campaign for Community Change, Common Cause, Health Care for America | Read More »
Tech at Night: Attacks on AT&T/T-Mobile attack federalism; Hutchison, Walden, and Heller target Obama power grabs
Wireless competition continues to grow, as Cricket edges closer to 4G LTE. I’m losing track of how many 4G providers we’re starting to rack up. So yes, the people who tell you smaller and regional carriers are not an acceptable substitute for national carriers? They’re selling you something. That something is an attack on federalism via the Sprint/Soros/Obama/Holder attack on AT&T and the rights of | Read More »

#OWS Occupy London Stock Exchange not showing up on standard thermal scans.
It’s the funniest thing. You know Western civilization? That patriarchal, logocentric, heteronormative collection of imperial hubris, Gaeacidal ideology, facist-capitalist-authoritarian economics, and war-worshipping mindset that continually oppresses the organizationally challenged and seeks to dismiss the concerns of the differently-paradigmed? Yeah, those folks. You know what their phallocentric engineer-destroyers have been doing while more enlightened people have been conducting on-street seminars on the inherent privilege found in | Read More »
The Tea Parties Have Spawned a Cargo Cult
Promoted from diaries. The legacy media have paid undue attention to Occupy Wall Street (OWS) over the last month, as compared with the early tea parties. New media, on the other hand, have gone nuts over the relatively small, union-led anti-business protests. Unsurprisingly, many analyses of the two groups have tried to find commonality between them. Except for superficial mimicry, despite politicians claiming otherwise the | Read More »
