SB. 1070’s Stay Of Execution
I know there is a great deal of anger and frustration out there… amongst the 70% of you who are racists that believe immigration laws should be enforced… about Federal Judge Susan Bolton’s willingness to be bought by Obama and the Holder DoJ, but all I can do is laugh…and I mean gut-wrenching, jiggly mid-section guffaw. Seriously…relax people, get some popcorn and consider the pretzel | Read More »
Further Relegating The Constitution To Irrelevance One State Law At A Time
On reliable authority (from those much smarter than I) I’m told that this notion of abandoning the traditions of the Electoral College is well within the rights of the “some several States” as afforded them in the 12th Amendment to the US Constitution and that sending Electors from each of these “some several States” with specific instructions to cast their ballot for the person with | Read More »
NH-1: Guinta’s Muddy Waters On Climate
I really want to like this guy Guinta; if he clears the primary I’m going to have to vote for him. It’s getting harder rather than easier though, because he seems far too adept at blaming everyone else but himself for his troubles. This is not a good sign. I wrote in this space recently about my concerns with Guinta’s position on the Stimulus bill. | Read More »
It’s Not Too Much To Ask…It’s Just Too Much To Give
[h/t Drudge] Tag teaming on James’ way excellent piece on Rangel I thought I’d pigpile with a walk down Nancy’s memory lane as she did the snoopy dance on election night in ’06, basking in the glow of victory: “The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical | Read More »
The Disingenuousness Of Democrats, Debbie Stabenow Edition
I can’t create a video clip from C-Span, so all I have is this screen cap…and a link to a shortened segment of the utter nonsense that erupted from her mouth today on the Senate floor. Stabenow, in complaining about the GOP making her wait the 30 hours granted under Senate rules before a vote on the bill to extend unemployment benefits, stated for the | Read More »
Rob Portman (OH Senate Cand, R), At Least, Believes In The Constitution
Rob Portman is running for US Senate in Ohio against Lt. Governor Lee Fisher. I thought this race was worth mentioning just now, at a time when our otherwise solid partners in the fight to defend the 2nd Amendment have gone squishy, because there are more gun rights groups out there than just the NRA. Opportunists though they have proven themselves to BE of late, | Read More »
The Art Of Self-Amelioration: Obama And The Party Of Lose
[image via TribeWithTed] I had a little fun recently with Obama’s Saturday Radio Address, during which he suggested Republicans actually WANT people to suffer in order to gain a political edge. That the Democrats have made this approach to governance a cornerstone of their success should not be lost on anyone here; Democrats get elected when they have more handouts to promise to potential voters | Read More »
Republicans “Make Their Stand On The Backs Of The Unemployed.” Really??
[base image via Xtra] So sayeth our President, at least. Shortly after George Bush took office, that surplus we keep hearing so much about was rounded down significantly…this is not mentioned in any of Obama’s rhetoric. The internet bubble burst, and the economy tanked…Obama is silent here as well. 9/11, and the costs associated with a call to a war he still wages? Nada. Through | Read More »
NH-1: Guinta Has *Got* To Go
I write about so many races I can’t actually vote in that it’s especially refreshing to come back to this one for a closer look two months running since my original piece on New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District race. Back in late May I did a generic overview of this District in which I outed the flaming liberal Carol Shea-Porter for the “out of touch | Read More »
Don’t Blink-Democrats Aren’t Done Killing Jobs Yet
While the Obama Administration takes its victory lap with the Democrats and their Union buddies over the job-killing Financial Reform bill they just passed, a host of other initiatives that would give special favors to Unions are waiting in the wings for the right time to be brought up for consideration. I say special favors because, unbeknownst to most of us, Unions made out like | Read More »
How’s That Mathematical Friendship With Osama Bin Laden Working Out For You Dr. Shabazz?
I just can’t get my fill of this video in which Dr. whatever his name is Shabazz (National Chairman of the New Black Panther Party) asks his “members” for a round of applause for Osama Bin Laden. You recognize that name, don’t you? Yep-that fuzzy little fluff ball just trying to take care of his people and protect them from the evil people around the | Read More »
NRSC Endorses Castle (R [sorta] Delaware)?
Or so one might think, given this screen cap from a couple days ago. Now, Cornyn and the kids have been known to get a few wrong in the past, to be sure, but really? Throwing up Castle’s picture in the roatating candidates section, given that he’s not even officially on the ballot yet smells terribly of the same self-inflicted doom the NRSC has long-suffered | Read More »
Why Democrats Must Go
You’d think the Democrats would be doing the snoopy dance during this election cycle. They have accomplished so many of the things Obama promised he’d do during the campaign (and his two Chamber Maids, Reid and Pelosi, guaranteed they’d support) so long as Americans elected Democrats to office. We did, and they have accomplished much. Yet, I don’t see a great deal of talk about | Read More »
Sin Tax Schadenfreude
The Reason Foundation published an article back in February ’09 looking at the failed logic of State (and Federal) Government placing such a huge reliance on Tobacco taxes as the means by which they hope to offset some of their budgetary woes in the “lean times.” They likened this broken record of failed tax policy to that of an “old vaudeville troop that can’t let | Read More »
Judged By The Color Of Their Skin And Not By The Content Of Their Character?
[image via FaceFwd] In his “I have a dream speech”, Martin Luther King Jr. said this: I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. In presenting Barack Obama to the Nation as a potential President, we were asked | Read More »
