The other day, I wrote that long wait times are not the only issue with the Obamacare website, highlighting my skepticism of the administration’s claims that high volume was to blame for all the glitches in the system. It turns out that Reuters news agency spoke with five technology experts who expressed…

They’ve chained the parking lot at the Minute Man* National Park in Lexington-Concord, MA. A reader would not be stopped, and writes, quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson’s poem about the “rude bridge”: “By the rude bridge that arched the flood Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled, Here once the embattled farmers stood And fired the shot heard ’round the world.” Yes,…

Remember Tuffy the Rodeo Clown? Who earned the ire of Democratic politicians and a lifetime ban from the Missouri State Fair because he wore an Obama mask? Tuffy never told other clowns to “make life as difficult for people as we can.” Tuffy never tried to stop aging WWII Veterans from making pilgrimage to…

Obama and financial markets: fear itself

Once again Obama takes a message of fear, and sells it as hope.

Obama and financial markets: fear itself

Posted by

Instead of exerting a calming influence, Obama ramps up the fear connected with the shutdown and the debt limit. Watch his demeanor, too; chilling: But actually this is nothing new, it’s how Obama rolls. …

Now gov’t trying to block people from looking at Mt. Rushmore (seriously)

Not satisfied shutting the monument even though the State offered to pay to keep it open, the feds placed cones to block viewing areas in the distance.

As bad as the Battle of the Barrycades is in Washington, D.C., forcing WWII Vets to have to push their way past barricades at the WWII Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, and Iwo Jima Memorial, what the feds did at Mount Rushmore has to be the most petty and insane of…

Did you know that the government is shut down right now because the GOP is racist?! Me neither. But that doesn’t stop liberals from *wishing* it were true. (Which is almost kind of like it is *actually* true, right?) You too can become educated on the liberals’ narrative of the government shutdown, thanks…

I’m not overly enamored of the complaint that Obama will negotiate with the Iranians, Syrians and Russians, but not with Republicans. The complaint sounds a little whiny. But it does prove a point. A point that I made long ago about how Obama treats the Israelis and other friends of the U.S., like…

Obama’s trek for a lunchtime photo op struck me as trying too hard. Contriving to make like he doesn’t have a worry in the world and is in the catbird’s seat tells me he knows his position is just the opposite. So does the cancellation of his Asia trip. Obama knows he…
