London Rioters Ran Rampant Over Disarmed Populace

Posted by  ▪  August 10, 2011
As thugs have been burning, beating, and stealing their way through London, citizens of that disarmed society had little to defend themselves with as the police were completely overwhelmed. I have the utmost respect for police officers and the work they do, but they cannot be everywhere at once, especially in the…

Salon.com grasping at anti-Rick Perry straws

Posted by  ▪  August 10, 2011
To say that Justin Elliott of Salon.com has it out for Rick Perry is an understatement. Last month I focused on Elliott’s fruitless attempt to paint Perry as a neo-confederate by association.  Now Elliott is trying to paint Perry as, get this, both anti-Muslim and pro-Sharia, Rick Perry: The Pro-Sharia Candidate?. For the supposed…

Posted by  ▪  August 10, 2011
Yes, you are celebrating.  But the Wisconsin Senate recall elections are not over.

What a night.  Thanks to all those who stopped by and commented. I thought this tweet perfectly captured the evening:
 

You mean like the ones

… who said the Tea Party was a bunch of violent extremists, that Kloppenburg would beat Prosser, and the Dems would take back the Wisconsin Senate? Why so skeptical?  They have journalism degrees, and you don’t. Taken by the wife yesterday in Swansea, Massachusetts:

Tweet of the day (yesterday, technically, but I saw it today): The runner-up:
 

Class warfare has consequences

Posted by  ▪  August 9, 2011
Obama plays with fire with his relentless class warfare. It tears at the seams which hold a country together. Demonizing the “top 2%” and claiming they don’t “pay their fair share” is not harmless when it is the singular focus of one’s political strategy. Isolating “corporate jet owners”…

Cornell Study: ObamaCare includes up to $66 billion in unexpected subsidies

Posted by  ▪  August 9, 2011
Cornell professor of policy analysis Dr. Richard Burkhauser, along with Sean Lyons and Indiana University’s Dr. Kosali Simon, has released a study showing that the ObamaCare legislation provides a significant incentive for employers and their employees to take advantage of the taxpayer subsidized insurance exchange. According to their policy brief, a very conservative estimate…

Wisconsin Recall

Posted by  ▪  August 9, 2011
Recall elections are being held today against six Republican State Senators.  I feel like I’ve covered Wisconsin so much this year, today is somewhat anti-climactic.  But it’s not, it is very important. Unions need to win back three seats to take control of the majority in the Senate (assuming the two remaining…

President Phony to attack Mitt Romney as phony

Posted by  ▪  August 9, 2011
So what else is new.  Obama’s campaign plans to destroy Mitt Romney, according to Politico, by playing class warfare and portraying Romney as phony and not genuine: Barack  Obama’s aides and advisers are preparing to center the president’s  re-election campaign on a ferocious personal assault on Mitt Romney’s character and business b…

1959 was a very good year, unless

Posted by  ▪  August 9, 2011
1959 was a very, very good year.  More so than you know.  Unless you were Cuban. Very, very good years are not always what they seem. Thanks to reader Jim who took this photo in Bradenton, Florida, of a bumper sticker which says “Cuba got ‘Change’ in 1959, be careful what you wish…
