DISCLOSE: Does It Mean Getting Naked?
The DISCLOSE Act is an excellent example of Democrat “transparency”, and is pure, naked political aggression being waged against all Americans. There used to be laws that protected political speech from government’s selective censorship, laws that both the people & the government respected. The Supreme Court’s recent decision in “Citizens United” nullified as unconstitutional Campaign Finance Law restricting free political speech. The DISCLOSE Act was | Read More »

Obama: “I am a giant hypocrite.”
So it’s official — Andy Stern, head of SEIU, is now on the supposedly bipartisan Fiscal Commission that President Obama has created (via Executive Order, after the Senate failed to pass it) to examine the debt. Let’s get this straight: Obama spends money at a record pace, and then appoints a union chief to a panel to figure out how to fix it? That’s sort | Read More »
The Audacity Of A Dope, By Barack Obama
We are witnessing something unprecedented in United States history. A President whose arrogance and audacity lead him to believe that he has the right and the authority to lecture those who are supposedly his peers, look down upon and ignore the American people who are legally and Constitutionally his boss, all the while presiding over a failed administration and making claims that even those who | Read More »
The First Amendment ― Statist’s Edition
In the wake of “Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission” and the Obama/Alito kerfuffle, I give you the First Amendment, as seen through the eyes of lefty statists: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech*, or of the press**; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble†, and to petition the | Read More »
Graphic: Spanking The Supreme Court
Click image to enlarge. Another of my composite graphics, this one in response to Obama’s treatment of The Supreme Court judges present during his State of the Union address. This man has no class.
A Little Less Talk And A Lot More Action
Obama has been a president defined by speeches. But if the old adages are true, that “actions speak louder than words” and “talk is cheap,” Obama must rise above rhetoric and get something done. Every crucial moment and every tough decision of the Obama presidency has been accompanied by a speech. As, The Australian wrote of Obama, Obama makes uniformly brilliant speeches. His presidency is | Read More »
Machinists Union President Buffenbarger Blasts Obama…Again!
Among all the union bosses cutting backroom deals with the White House in 2009, one has been noticably absent and that is Tom Buffenbarger, the president of the International Association of Machinists. Buffenbarger, most-famously known for his 2008 tirade (see below) against then-candidate Obama is apparently on the White House’s growing list of enemies and, therefore, is apparently not welcome in all of the back | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Statement on Taxes Raises a Valid Question
In the State of the Union address last night, Barack Obama said: As we stabilized the financial system, we also took steps to get our economy growing again, save as many jobs as possible, and help Americans who had become unemployed. That’s why we … passed 25 different tax cuts. Let me repeat: we cut taxes. We cut taxes for 95% of working families. We | Read More »
Beyond the Whining, What Did the President Propose?
The President, not too surprisingly, said a lot last night in the State of the Union – and by that, I mean he used a lot of words. But what did the President actually propose? In short – it was the same thing we’ve been hearing from him since his campaign – the government creates jobs, the government needs to control healthcare, and the government | Read More »
A Declaration of War
“That the President of the United States would say such a thing and think it a good, responsible idea suggests the man is truly ignorant of or an enemy of the free market.” After reflection on Barack Obama’s State of the Union address, I am left with one overarching conclusion: while boring, preachy, dull, overly serious, then flipping to overly jocular tones while trying to | Read More »
Any Idea What Barack Obama Avoided Like the Plague Tonight?
Okay, he didn’t talk about victory or winning, but on domestic policy.What big topic did he not mention?Here’s a hint. He said: But when I ran for President, I promised I wouldn’t just do what was popular – I would do what was necessary. And if we had allowed the meltdown of the financial system, unemployment might be double what it is today. More businesses | Read More »
My Response to the State of the Union
As I listened to the President speak about the problems facing our nation and how he intends to solve them I heard one phrase repeated over and over again – more government. I wondered why the President isn’t listening to the American people. They don’t want the government involved in every part of their life. They don’t trust Washington to solve their problems any longer. | Read More »
‘Just Statin’ the Facts’
What you did not know at home listening to Barack Obama’s speech tonight is that he inserted a few quips that were not in the prepared text. They were cocky and snide.After an entire paragraph bashing the Bush administration with this (by the way, he blamed the Bush administration throughout his speech, refusing to accept ownership of any problem): At the beginning of the last | Read More »
