Politico creates the narrative it wants from unhelpful numbers

Union protesters called hot dog vendor “Uncle Tom” and “N*gger” but you won’t hear about it in the mainstream media

I have posted numerous times about the union violence in Lansing, including punches thrown at Steven Crowder and the tearing down of the Americans for Prosperity tent even as bystanders screamed that there were people inside. You may also have heard the story of the hot dog vendor whose equipment and supplies…

Did you know it wasn’t the business of Western democratic governments to “accommodate” capitalism?

In the United Kingdom, Google has come under fire for lowering its tax bill by legally rerouting nearly $10 billion to Bermuda.  Google chairman Eric Schmidt was quick to defend his company and its strategies.  “We pay lots of taxes; we pay them in the legally prescribed ways,” he told Bloomberg. “I…

What comes after a trillion?  For Obama, it’s another trillion, and another, and …. From Doug: Saw this truck in Lakeville, MN, in a local area McDonalds and thought this person’s truck showed how a true conservative handles his loss, with dignity and resistance against the Collective Blob! Plus, the truck is not a…

Which blue state gets the 2012 Darwin Award? (Reader Poll)(Results — California wins by a landslide!)

Posted by  ▪  December 12, 2012
I’m still learning things about the Internet.  One of those things is the “Darwin Award.” It came to my attention through this post at Israel Maztzav, And we have a Darwin Award winner! In an earlier post, I reported that a ‘Palestinian’ had been shot and killed after pulling a gun on IDF…

The Muslim Brotherhood and its allies having pushed through a draft Constitution which, according to the opposition, tramples the rights of non-Islamists, and fails to protect civil liberties and women, left the opposition in a bind. The drafting of a new Constitution relied on good faith by those with the power over the…

Poll backs up The Christmas Strategy

Posted by  ▪  December 12, 2012
I told you I wouldn’t stop writing about The Christmas Strategy. A new poll backs me up that the public will go along with a strategy which places Democratic sacred cows on the carving board, NBC/WSJ poll: Two-thirds support balanced deficit deal: As the Obama White House and Congress negotiate to avoid the…

I wouldn’t want to belong to an “international community” that would have me as a member

Posted by  ▪  December 12, 2012
The word community has been devalued.  Once upon a time it meant something specifically geographic—not unlike neighborhood—as in, “We live in a really nice little community.” Then in the ’60s community was adopted as a synonym for people.  So instead of saying “black people believe,” you said “the black community believes.”  It…

Dear @SpeakerBoehner, have you heard of The Christmas Strategy?

Posted by  ▪  December 12, 2012
I am going to keep repeating The Christmas Strategy until someone in Republican circles listens: I say call his bluff. If a deal which tackles deficits from both revenue and spending can be reached this month, great. If not, pass a 90 day extension of current tax rates and whatever else is needed…

John Boehner leads Debtcracker ballet for Christmas

Posted by  ▪  December 12, 2012
I personally will never forget the horrendous 2009 Christmas Eve Senate vote for Obamacare. Around the same time, the “stimulus” legislation that eventually became the American Recovery and Investment Act was being bandied about the halls of Congress with tons of hyper-partisan theater. Now, it seems the House of Representatives will continue the…

Most chilling Michigan video — “There are people under there, oh my God”

Posted by  ▪  December 11, 2012
The numerous videos of the union mob action in Michigan today show an assault on Steven Crowder, but it actually was potentially much worse as the mob collapsed the tent even as bystanders screamed that there were people inside. Here’s the descripion from the news station which filmed the event: Right to work…
