Potemkin Federalism And The Modern Campaign Straddle
The president stressed that this is a personal position, and that he still supports the concept of states deciding the issue on their own. (HT: Yahoo News) I’m thinking President Obama regrets two of his decisions right about now. He wishes he wasn’t about to hold the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC and he’d rather have Opus The Penguin as a Veep right now | Read More »
Do Welfare States Incur Odious Debts?
We think single currencies really require single governments…There’s nowhere in the world that has more of a single currency without having more of a single government. British PM David Cameron (HT: The Daily Mail).
Detroit Calling – What’s Really At Stake In The Wisconsin Recall
Heartbreak in the Motor City! I was totally shocked and astounded to learn that Kwame Kilpatrick’s political sidekicks looted the pensions of Detroit City police officers and fire-fighters. According to Tresa Baldas of The Detroit Free Press, Kwame’s Magical Medicine Show included the following shenanigans.
Julia’s Come A Long, Long Way
Barack Obama’s political ad team introduced us to Julia. What a poor, misunderstood and insulted woman. If she exists, she is a pariah. If she is a composite, nobody with pride would admit to being one of the models. Julia appeals to no one of an independent mind for two reasons. She is totally dependent and seemingly isolated. This combination of factors weakens Julia to | Read More »
Off To The Races
Well, well, well. Didn’t the pot just call the kettle darkly-hued. It’s okay. I get it. 52% of our nation’s electorate was foolish enough to vote for a detestable hypocrite. On issue after issue, across all the political boundaries, the man’s ability to hold diametrically opposed views when his tactical needs changed astounds the rational observer. In 2006, it was Senator Obama who piously announced | Read More »
You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere
I don’t care how many letters they sent Morning came and morning went. Pick up your money, and pack up your tent You ain’t goin’ nowhere – Bob Dylan It was bad. It was so bad that the Obama campaign staffers over at Business Insider.com had no choice but to report it in and honest and forthright manner. The it in question involved the ADP | Read More »
The Arab Spring Gives Way To A Red Harvest
“The worse it gets, the better it is.” – Vladamir I Lenin. Imagine you possess a burning will to power. This intense desire to take over and run the nation you live in stems from a messianic complex mated with egocentric power lust to form the bastard offspring of revolutionary zeal. Yet a problem stands between you and your desire to inflict “30.06 enlightenment” on | Read More »
Job Creation and EPA Enforcement Philosophy – Coincidence With Roots
“…the soldiers out of rage and hatred, nailed those they caught, one after one way, and another after another, to the crosses, by way of jest.” – Flavius Josephus (HT:Wikipedia) In the video above, Al Armendariz discusses how his agency should enforce regulations on Oil and Gas extraction firms. The term crucifixion enters into the discussion. I’m sure it was just a rhetorical flourish in | Read More »
The Plusses, Minuses and Pleasant Surprises From Mitt Romney
Did you know that the GOP held five Presidential primaries yesterday? Maybe; maybe not. However, given that data point, you all can tell me exactly who won all five of them. Mitt Romney will be the GOP nominee.
Failed Leaders With Failed Agendas Always Blame The Speculators
It’s worth noting that, although the President of the United States hasn’t the power of Generalisimo Chavez, Pres. Obama’s attacks on speculators are just as politically opportunistic and economically ignorant – and potentially as destructive – as are any such attacks issued by Latin American dictators… – Don Boudreaux, Café Hayek. If anyone out there still needed a primer on why a Government-Centered Society was | Read More »
Look Into A Distant Mirror
“The behaviour depicted absolutely violates our regulations and, more importantly, our core values,” he said. “This is not who we are and it is certainly not who we represent when it comes to the great majority of men and women in uniform who are serving there. This is war. I know war is ugly and is violent. I know that young people sometimes caught up | Read More »
Why Should David Parker Resign?
The North Carolina Democratic Party State Chairman David Parker has encountered a passel of trouble. It seems his Executive Director-cum-Hatchet-Man Jay Parmley was caught homosexually harassing an employee and responded by firing the individual in question. He then attempted to conceal the sordid and predatory turn of events by bribing this individual into signing a non-disclosure form. The rank-and-file Democrats are disgusted and have become | Read More »
More broadly, ….those who donated the most to Mr. Obama and the Democratic Party ….were far more likely to visit the White House than others. Among donors who gave $30,000 or less, about 20 percent visited the White House, according to a New York Times analysis that matched names in the visitor logs with donor records. But among those who donated $100,000 or more, the | Read More »
Les Miserables II
“Once I was in the state legislature, I was teaching, I was practicing law, I’d be traveling,” he said. “And we didn’t have the luxury for her not to work….” (HT:CNSnews) OK. So Hillary Rosen inserts foot in mouth up to knee and requires immediate medical evacuation as far away from a live microphone as possible. That’s OK, we get it. She, like Huey “The | Read More »
If Raising The Romney’s Five Kids Involved Work, The Obama Administration Would Underpay Her For It.
For a while I was just stunned to learn that the terrific, sensitive, caring and wonderful President who gave America The Lilly Ledbetter Act was deliberately and systematically underpaying his female employees. That was until Hillary Rosen filled us in on what the Obama White House really thinks about “The Little Woman.”
