The End Of A Free Republic And The Beginning Of Obamaland
The United States Of America as we have known it ceased to exist during an announcement made by the President of The United States. Barack Obama announced that essentially government was taking over two major companies who up until the announcement were publicly owned by stock holders and privately managed by a CEO and Board of Directors. We have witnessed at the behest of Barack | Read More »
My mother has become a socialist.
I happen to be relatively new at Redstate. I have only lurked, and maybe a couple of posts. But I haven’t done anything serious, until now. No more, I have been given a blow by my own mother, and that is what has gotten me furious. You see, I became a conservative, because my mother was a conservative. It wasn’t until my 18th | Read More »
Barack Obama Could Care Less About You Or The Economy
The old adage, “action speaks louder than words,” has never been more appropriate than it is now when applying it to Barack Obama and his agenda of, “change,” which in reality is taking our Nation toward total bankruptcy. He continually tells the American people during talk show visits, orchestrated press conferences, and policy or legislative announcements that without his agenda America will never recover from | Read More »
Tax Them and They Shall Leave!
Ahh yes in another chapter of “Tax Them and They Shall Leave” we find that bastion of taxation, New York, at it again. They’ve dropped all pretenses and moved from “wealth re-distribution” to plain old “distribution of the wealthy”. We can only come to the conclusion that the political Left are idiots. This will be the same old failure that raising taxes on cigarettes to | Read More »
What Kind of Fool is Matt Yglesias?
a) The kind of fool who has never held a real job? b) The kind of fool who thinks there’s nothing un-American about using punitive taxation to drive the best baseball players in the world out of the United States? c) The kind of fool who has been drinking too much bong water? Judging by this post, probably all three?
The Wit & Wisdom of the Great Scripted One
“Rule 1: Never allow a crisis to go to waste,” White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel told the New York Times right after the election. “They are opportunities to do big things.” Those big things scare me. In a time of massive economic hardship, we have a Treasury Secretary telling congress he won’t consider a worldwide currency and then embracing that same worldwide currency | Read More »

Obama survival kit – Disney style
(Ok, if this is not really a diary-worthy topic, I apologize in advance. But it made an impact on me, and if it helps even one of you feel the way I did, it will be worth getting scolded for posting as a diary! ). If you’re like me, and I know a lot of you are, you’ve been feeling pretty down lately about the | Read More »

The Nouveau Welfare Class
So I was at the grocery store last Friday, the 13th of March 2009, buying my weekly groceries. Shopping went normally. Grapes where running $1.49 a pound, so I picked up a small bag to add to my bananas for fruit for the week. Near the checkout, the 12 or less line was empty, but I passed by it to go to the normal amount | Read More »
How Obama Made A Grown Man Cry
Does anyone remember that old public service announcement with the Indian who looks over what has become of America and a tear rolls down his cheek? Like most Americans, I take great pride in the peaceful transfer of power from our elections. As the inaugural glittering generalities started to be replaced with a legislative policy, an oozy feeling took place in my stomach. Then President | Read More »
The Man Who Would Be King Starts to Bleed
Well, well, well. Now that Captain Cowpatty’s manure is starting to stink up the place and the American people have decided it is starting to smell a hell of a lot like socialism, his poll numbers are dropping. Polling data show that Mr. Obama’s approval rating is dropping and is below where George W. Bush was in an analogous period in 2001. Rasmussen Reports data | Read More »

Barack Obama and Gordon Brown: Surrounded by crisis, “opportunity.”
Cross posted to The Political Class. The Left is threatening our freedom by using the downturn to bolster the power of the state, says Janet Daley of the Telegraph: The story so far: some capitalists behaved very badly. While this was going on, the socialists didn’t ask questions because they were too busy spending the receipts that flowed from that behaviour. Now, the socialists – | Read More »
Moderates in the Taliban?
“There may be opportunities to reach out to moderates in the Taliban, but the situation in Afghanistan is more complicated than the challenges the American military faced in Iraq, Obama said.” The above quote from President Obama puzzles me. I don’t know that there are any “moderates” in the Taliban. What exactly constitutes a moderate? Is it someone that just wants to kill some of | Read More »
