Train Oil Explosion

Mother Jones Unwittingly Makes a Case for the Keystone Pipeline

Posted by  ▪  June 1, 2014

Ask a stupid question…

The reliably leftist publication Mother Jones has noticed that using trains to transport oil hasn’t worked out too well over the last few years. Too bad there’s no safer way to transport fuel. Why do these tank cars carrying oil keep blowing up? http://t.co/zWed8ShuSp pic.twitter.com/CF6uJzqFSi— Mother Jones (@MotherJones) June 1, 2014 @MotherJones…

But he knows nothing: Obama on Veterans Affairs Committee 2005-2008

Posted by  ▪  June 1, 2014

Yet he insists problems at the VA were unknown to him until recently.

Obama and many of his supporters have claimed that problems with the VA go back many years. While there is some truth to that, they’ve neglected to point out that prior to becoming president, Senator Barack Obama served on the Veterans Affairs Committee. This was a very good catch by Weasel Zippers… Yesterday, Barack…

Was Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl – Taliban hostage deal worth it? (Reader Poll)

Posted by  ▪  June 1, 2014
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released yesterday in exchange for 5 top Taliban terrorists held at Gitmo. On the one hand, an American soldier was brought home. As with the Israelis, it sends a signal that we don’t leave anyone behind, even when the trade is lopsided and frees those who may…

Bumper Sticker - DC - Proud to be a Democrat

Shameless in D.C.

Posted by  ▪  June 1, 2014

But probably pays well.

Taken in D.C. On a very, very, very rare trip by me. I had not been in D.C. since college, until recently. This bumper sticker confirmed that my decision to stay away for over 30 years was correct.

Is “half-white privilege” like being “half-pregnant”?

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2014

Saturday Night Card Game: White privilege is the political Swiss Army Knife of the progressive movement.

White privilege is the political Swiss Army Knife of the progressive movement. There is literally nothing that happens in the country for which white privilege does not serve as a tool. If you are white, you have white privilege. If you are not, you suffer from lack of white privilege. The insane White…

Jen Psaki

Hey @StateDeptSpox — They’re laughing at you not with you

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2014

Claims Obama doesn’t give himself enough credit for foreign policy successes.

Poor Jen Psaki, the Spokeswoman for the State Department. Her job is almost as difficult as newly resigned White House spokesman, Jay Carney. Speaking to reporters recently, Ms. Psaki got a rise out of the crowd when she suggested Obama doesn’t give himself enough credit. Here’s the video. Transcript via News Busters… Q: Jen, you would…

Illinois puts hold on $100 million public funding of Obama Library

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2014

For now…

You would think a state with such dire financial problems couldn’t even consider spending such a large sum of tax dollars on something that’s usually built with private money. Luckily, the Illinois House has backed off the idea for the moment. USA Today reported… Illinois shelving $100M gift to Obama library A plan to…

The straw man has feet of clay

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2014

Some say leftists are sick and tired of Obama.

Even the Washington Post seems to have noticed lately that Obama has been attacking a host of strawmen. And the WaPo is not alone; the NY Times suggested something similar when it wrote, as part of its editorial about Obama’s West Point speech: “In some ways, that was a straw-man argument…” Actually, Obama…

LI #39 Coffee Party

Hey….what ever happened to the Coffee Party?

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2014
In the wake of Tea Party’s initial phases of success and media attention in 2009, progressive counterparts astroturfed their own version: The Coffee Party. For me, the most troubling aspect of development is that the organizers usurped the beverage that powers my Tea Party activities. But, I digress. Recently, many elite pundits were gleefully…

Ithaca-area reality-based community

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2014

Reality is hard.

Remember the guy in the Home Depot parking lot in Ithaca who was kind enough to Thank Obama voters? This featured image was the other bumper sticker on the vehicle. Gutsy guy to parade around like that inside the 10 square miles surrounded by reality. He must be a member of the reality-based community…
