Tech at Night: Team Obama pirates software. Ted Cruz wants answers on FCC.
Seen on RedState Friday: Geoffrey Manne talks about FCC rigging the spectrum game, which is such a shame since spectrum auctions are one of the greatest regulatory innovations we’ve seen.
I bet you heard all there was to hear about Ted Cruz after the shutdown ended? Nope. He’s taking on the President’s nominee for FCC Chairman, Tom Wheeler. He wants answers, and he’s entitled to get them.
Bitcoin and crime just seem to go hand-in-hand.

The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 55: A Service Considered Essential, Banning Recreation at Recess, and Name That Quote!
The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. Of all the services that the government performs, which ones are considered “essential”? Which ones stay operating even during a shutdown? Here’s an example of one, and in fact, it’s a service that is active only during a shutdown. What if they held a recess and nobody played? A school is banning | Read More »
Methinks The Tea-Party Just Went Back On The Warpath

Advancing. Ever Advancing.
Much cynicism has been expressed over the past month about the effort, led by Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, to fight Obamacare. It was about money or defeating Republicans or something other than what it was about — undermining Obamacare with a united front. It was always about undermining Obamacare, despite the claims of others. But, those of us who were in this fight against | Read More »
Ted Cruz is Doing the Right Thing
Some conservatives are complaining that Ted Cruz will not filibuster the debt ceiling increase in the Senate.He is doing the right thing.While you and I and he and everyone else knows the debt ceiling issue will not actually throw us into default, we must remember low information voters and the media. The media will report that Ted Cruz has single handedly thrown the nation into | Read More »
Building a Coalition Out of Chaos
It’s hard for me to even calculate the amount of words that have been used to debate the merits of defund vs delay vs some other strategy. The amount of energy complaining about Ted Cruz or the amount of flyers calling for John Boehner’s head have reached apocalyptic proportions . Truly things are a mess. And no doubt, each faction believes some other faction is | Read More »
On Leadership: Winston Churchill & Ted Cruz
In May 1940 the world faced a menace unlike any it had ever seen. After a decade of economic body blows, much of the world was weary. With the carnage of WWI only 20 years past few people had the stomach to fight for much of anything. It was only with great reluctance that in September 1939 the British and the French declared war on | Read More »
I’m with Stupid
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com The bad news for the Obama Administration is the Obamacare rollout is every bit the train wreck Max Baucus said it would be. The good news is nobody knows about it, except for the millions who have lost their insurance thanks to Obamacare reforms. Everyone else is distracted by the Republican-led government shutdown. The GOP has thrown away a tremendous political advantage. Coming after | Read More »
Let’s Give Our Conservative Senate Candidates A Social Media Boost
One of the main reasons Democrats won again in 2012 was due to superior utilization of social media. In this day and age, many people don’t get their information for CBS Nightly News, but from Facebook and Twitter. As shallow as Facebook and Twitter might seem, they actually provide a better medium for education than the biased liberal media outlets. The nature of social media | Read More »
Grand Bargain must cut spending, end Obamacare’s Hunger Games-exemption
Speaker Boehner must not be spooked, by President Obama’s debt ceiling-default threat, to grab defeat from the jaws of government shutdown-victory. This wacko bird-tea partier conservative couldn’t have written the GOP’s continuing budget resolution (CR)-script, nor executed the strategy, better than it has played out…thus far. Large majorities of elected Republicans have remained united on insisting that any bill to fully fund the non-Obamacare portion | Read More »

Vlad to the Rescue
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com The wise folks who stuffed Obamacare down my throat decided I wasn’t capable of choosing my own insurance plan. Ever attentive to my needs, they established the Health Insurance Marketplace where I could go and find a federally approved plan. The last three days I have gone to the only place I am allowed to buy health insurance only to see this: “We have | Read More »
Ted Cruz & Mike Lee: Commanders of the Conservative Army
Whenever a conservative says anything critical of the pukey leadership in the Republican Party — whenever they do it — what do we hear? “Circular firing squad.” “This is not helpful.” “They violated the 11th Commandment.” “Let’s not make our 80% friend our enemy.” “They won’t consider the end game.” They vomit this stuff up every single time any conservative points out how badly they | Read More »
Exchange exchanges, state monopolies for Free national health insurance Market
What’s next, government exchanges for health care-related goods and services like personal trainers, walking shoes, housing, automobiles, gasoline, food and ferry boat rides? Think that’s far-fetched, when President Obama’s Democratic Party policies already attack the poor and middle class by increasing the price of shelter, transportation and sustenance via EPA, HUD and other regulations? How surreal is it, that in order to buy a private | Read More »

A question to establishment Republicans: Do you want American healthcare to turn into the Kansas City, MO, public school district?
“The roller coaster is done in this district.” — Steve Green, Kansas City, Missouri, Public Schools Superintendent, quoted in an article in the left-wing McClatchy-owned Kansas City Star, where the headline reads, “Area districts cheer progress of Kansas City schools.” A KC Star editorial on October 1, 2013, pressured the Missouri legislature to “fix the law allowing students to transfer out of troubled districts and | Read More »
Ted Cruz Stands Tall – The Media Attacks
The ruling class and the main stream media are pulling out all of the stops in an attempt to discredit and defame the tenacious Senator from Texas Ted Cruz in light of his recent attempt to bring overwhelming public concerns over the negative impact that the Affordable Care Act is currently having and will increasing have on the American fiscal climate, as well as the | Read More »
