Time for an invervention, Obama’s on a tax hike bender

Posted by  ▪  September 18, 2011

Five days ago Obama unveiled a “jobs plan” which included tax hikes of $467 billion, $400 billion of which were on individuals making $200,000 (and couples making $250,000). Tomorrow Obama will unveil a “deficit reduction plan” which will include $1.5 trillion

‘Millionaire Tax’ Tweet of the Day

Posted by  ▪  September 18, 2011

This seems like pretty good advice to the GOP, although the pathetic political ploy needs to be called for what it is (as I did last night): Update:  Time for an invervention, Obama’s on a tax hike bender

Call Abu Bluff’s bluff

Posted by  ▪  September 18, 2011

Carl at Israel Matzav has given Mahmoud Abbas, aka Abu Mazen, the nickame ”Abu Bluff.” The trip by Abbas to the U.N. this week ostensibly to obtain recognition of a Palestinian state is another bluff.  Abbas doesn’t even have the support of his

Monstrous lies unfolding at the U.N. this week

Posted by  ▪  September 18, 2011

One lie is that there is a historically and ethnically distinct Palestinian people, but that lie is so well established that it is beyond argument now.  Even if Palestinian nationalism was a fiction created in the last few decades as a tool

Can’t Obama just find someone to publicly flog and be done with it already?

Posted by  ▪  September 17, 2011

How sad.  Our president has been reduced to chasing demons. Obama’s recent phony jobs bill which raised $400 billion in taxes on everyone making over $200,000 (couples over $250,000) apparently did not whip the masses into a pitchfork and torch frenzy,

Saturday Night Card Game (“…what I got was the white guy…”)

Posted by  ▪  September 17, 2011

This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain: Some prominent white liberals, in this case Bill Maher and Michael Moore, are pretty quick to portray conservatives and particularly Tea Partiers as

Does more wine always mean more problems?

Posted by  ▪  September 17, 2011

A headline on the BBC caught my eye today:  The warming wine regions. [...] High-value grapes are grown within a narrow climate window, Stanford earth scientist Noah Diffenbaugh said, making them more sensitive to temperature variations than standard crops. In

The Overblown Rhetoric Politically Expedient Misleadingly Named Not Job Saving or Creating Act of 2011

Posted by  ▪  September 17, 2011

The naming of legislative bills is getting out of hand. Instead of Stimulus V (or whatever we are up to), Rep. Jan Schakowsky (Dem-Ill) has introduced the Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act, which she announced on Twitter:

What possibly could go wrong with Obama’s LED light push?

Posted by  ▪  September 17, 2011

Much like windmills, Obama’s energy plans for the country turn on “green” energy like LED lighting. From The White House website: Today’s Recovery Act in Action episode takes place in Durham, NC at Cree, Inc., America’s foremost producer of LED

If Hillary had been President …

Posted by  ▪  September 17, 2011

Inspired by today’s bumper sticker post, let’s all wonder how things might have been different had Hillary won the election (some say she did win the election, but that’s another matter). For better and for worse. I’ll start. We woud
