Sequestration Is the Bipartisan Law of the Land. Fight on Obamacare.
I was very disappointed to see Robert Costa of National Review use of the dollar sign in this tweet:https://twitter.com/robertcostaNRO/status/389239754790694912Praised recently by a lot of liberals in the press, invited to the White House to sit with Barack Obama, and now subtly suggesting the McConnell – Boehner – K Street GOP attack on Heritage Action for America, Senate Conservatives Fund, Club for Growth, and Madison Project | Read More »
Freedom is resistance
As ObamaCare collapses into a pile of flaming garbage on the eve of full implementation, there’s a cottage industry of liberals screaming that it’s all the fault of those dastardly Republicans, because they won’t fix the idiotic program that none of them voted for. We’ve heard this sort of complaint throughout the Obama presidency, of course – his endless failures are always the fault of | Read More »
Tech at Night: Apple to make it work where Pandora says it’s impossible. Wikileaks has its own leak problem. IRS targets Open Source Software.
Wow. Even as it comes out that Apple is going to pay more than Pandora for its coming radio service (which is probably going to be a windfall for small publishers), here’s a great set of answers from Marsha Blackburn on IRFA for conservative activists.
Good news: it only took $5,000 to get a Wikileaks person to… leak information. Ha. More of this, please.
Remember when I shook my head at all those digital libertarians stupid enough to vote for Obama? Well, heh. Now we find the Obama IRS is targeting open source software groups for tax repression. Heh. Told you so.

The White House Cancels the White House
This is out-and-out manipulation of public opinion and playing on the emotions of Americans for political gain. The Washington Times reported that the White House announced in an email, “ Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice. Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule | Read More »

Sequestration Anagrams and White House Narratives
This entire week has seen a whole gambit of sequestration blame and doomsday scenarios (no more bacon!) from the White House administration. However, over the last few days, we’ve also seen the White House changing its tune on sequestration. As they struggle to rearrange the narrative, it got me to thinking about rearranging the letters in the word “Sequestration”. First, here are some of my | Read More »

The Day the Music Died
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com Watching the president and his minions relentlessly fan the flames of Sequestration panic, my first reaction was, “Does Obama think we’re all complete idiots?” Then the answer hit me. Of course he does, we reelected him. This explains why every day he or his team made another prediction, each more dire than the last. Yesterday Democrat Representative Maxine Walters hit the jackpot when she | Read More »
The Sequester Gift Bag
As you all are probably aware, the Oscars were this past weekend, and as usual, the gift bag was huge. It was at a five year low $47,803, mind you, but by the standards of us poors, it was gigantic.

Obama’s Deficit Reduction/Sequestration Plan Was to Add $ 1 Trillion in New Revenue
Obama’s been acting like a petulant child since his sequestration plan showed signs of backfiring. It was intended to force the Republicans to cave to his demands for yet another “balanced approach” to deficit reduction because he took the gamble that the Republicans would never, ever allow sequestration/defense cuts to happen. He tried everything from inciting fear to media collaboration to foist new taxes upon | Read More »
