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
Romney Has Looked Better Under The Spotlight Than I Initially Feared....
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
"The Price Had Better Be Right."
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 | 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 »
Influence Peddling. A Business That Never Dies.
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 | Read More »
Les Miserables II
It's Just Brutal on $450K Per Year
“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 | 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.”
Fables Of A Reality Based Community
An urban legend, urban myth, urban tale, or contemporary legend, is a form of modern folklore consisting of stories that may or may not have been believed by their tellers to be true. As with all folklore and mythology, the designation suggests nothing about the story’s veracity, but merely that it is in circulation, exhibits variation over time, and carries some significance that motivates the | Read More »

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. …. Our energy [issue] is the necessity of diversifying our energy export markets. We can not be, as a country, in a situation where really our one energy | Read More »
How Phoenix, AZ Got A Bite At The Apple
So Gov. Rick Perry seems to have gotten over the entire debacle that was his run for The GOP nomination and gone back to doing what Governor Perry does well. He’s on the phone swinging deals to bring jobs and power down South to The Rio Grande. Well not quite that far South, he’s targeting Austin, TX instead. The Austin American-Statesman reveals details. Apple Inc. | Read More »
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 »
