If you only read

Posted by  ▪  September 19, 2011

one op-ed today, I hope it is Mary O’Grady’s column in the Wall Street Journal: “Big Labor’s Yanqui Imperialism.” On the face of it, the National Labor Relations Board’s effort to block a new Boeing plant slated for the right-to-work

Posted by  ▪  September 19, 2011

BlueCheddar is a Wisconsin “progressive” website that posted a video confession by an anti-Republican stalker who poured beer over a Republican legislator. The stalker has been charged with disorderly conduct, but the conduct potentially was a felony battery under Wisconsin Statutes 940.20(4): (4)

How wide is the al Qaeda net?

Posted by  ▪  September 19, 2011

I came across an interesting post this morning on the Journal’s Numbers Guy blog. I think we all have a tendency to think of al Qaeda as a large force, certainly they’ve been difficult to track down, but how big

Hay, that’s pretty funny

Thanks to reader Danelle who writes: We took this one this afternoon in Wise County, just west of Dallas.  Wise County is one of Texas’ hard hit counties from both drought and wildfire, the most recent being last week.  Many ranchers

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…”)
