Restoring America’s Image In The World; The Canadian Edition
Now, in fairness though I’ve got to say that Canada’s interests here are a little bit different. And particularly, I might as well be frank, particularly in light of the…of the interim decision at least on Keystone. ….

The Emperor Needs A New Diaper
I like and appreciate both Moe Lane and Leon Wolf. I’ve been rewarded vastly beyond my limited abilities getting to front page on this blog with them both. However, they’ve each made a serious error in judgment this week which I’ll hopefully rectify in today’s issue of Repair_Man_Jack. Leon and Moe have both weighed in on Admiral Obama’s | Read More »
Constitutionality And Thoughtcrime
I appreciate it when Dahlia Lithwick writes more often for Slate Magazine. It’s hard arguing that Liberals lack any fundamental gravamen or intellectual perspicacity without compelling, in print, visual evidence. She entitled her 22 March missive “It’s Not About the Law, Stupid…. Next week’s health care argument before the Supreme Court is all about optics, politics, and public opinion.” In so doing, she just summed | Read More »

Budgets Force Choices.

There Will Be A Reckoning Against These People.
Nancy Pelosi’s lovely and talented daughter Alexandra seems to be hearing dog-whistles again. If I were as intolerant as Ms. Pelosi and her ideological buddy “Comedian” Bill Maher, the punch lines from this opening sentence would abound. In a recent safari to the American wilds of Mississippi, she caught the following footage of that curious species Redneckus Americanus frolicking in its native abode.
Barack Obama's Reelection Strategy (HT:Takimag)
Is it possible to turn on the TV today without being told how wonderful Barack Obama is?

How To Make The CBO Your Tool of Disinformation
Phillip Klein of The Washington Examiner is shocked. Phillip Klein is appalled. He’s shocked and appalled. It seems that he was the last individual in Washington, DC to get the message that The Affordable Care Act of 2009 (AKA ObamaCare) was going to take a wee tad more out of the national wallet than we were previously led to believe after the CBO estimated it’s | Read More »
Carpetbeggers Can’t Be Choosers – Now They’ve Come For the “Game” Blogs
The so-called “manosphere” is peopled with hundreds of websites, blogs and forums dedicated to savaging feminists in particular and women, very typically American women, in general. Although some of the sites make an attempt at civility and try to back their arguments with facts, they are almost all thick with misogynistic attacks that can be astounding for the guttural hatred they express. What follows are | Read More »
Green Dogma Run Over By Clunky Karma

Well, Super Tuesday didn’t quite pan out the way I hoped it would. Like most supporters of a guy who came in “Not First,” I could spend Hangover Wednesday trying to spin. I prefer not to bother. It’s better just to suck the lemon. Lemons are rich in Vitamin C. I still stand by my endorsement issued a couple of weeks back. I would prefer | Read More »
