Wrestling with the I.O.C: a shortsighted, tragic decision

Filed under: In The News - 01 Mar 2013

Empty rhetoric and meaningless lines: the Obama non-presidency

After Tuesday night’s State of the Union (5 down, 3 to go!), nothing has changed: Barack Obama remains a Marxist caricature, his presidency vapid by historical standards, and his leadership style exemplar of fecklessness… You wouldn’t know it by the …

The Year 2012… Farce, fiasco, fascism, and faith

Filed under: In The News - 06 Jan 2013

Well, now that it’s clear that the Mayans are no better than Dick Morris at predicting the future, I’d like to offer some year end – if not world end – thoughts. As a principled conservative, I’m generally aggrieved at …

Ohio by way of Somalia: Dem Fraud Machine gears-up in the Buckeye state

You’re 29 years/old, you have Cystic Fibrosis, you need an expensive drug in order to survive…. The government-run socialized medical system that – by law – must approve drug-requests deems your survival odds insufficient to justify the cost of purchase….They …

The Campaign Hurricane e-mails: Obama seeks $$, Romney sends prayers

Wow. I never get used to it… As hyper-informed and cognizant of the evil/buffoonery/cravenness of this administration as I am, I never get used to the petty, maladroit, and moronic e-mails with which they pepper their base. …

ObamaCare, the Supreme Court, and Catholic delusion

We’re now weeks, not months, away from the Supreme Court ruling on ObamaCare. Looking back, I remember comments by Fidel Castro upon passage of the law. Until that time, we’d “lagged Cuba” and been denied the “right” to have technocrats …

Remembering Breitbart: a Roman Candle Star

Filed under: In The News - 02 Mar 2012

Andrew Breitbart passed away Wednesday night. Breitbart, lightning and lodestar, was activism personified, a raging pioneer in the media revolution. Courageous, fearless, tireless…. He was these and more, an adjective train–irascible, irreverent, iconic, IN YOUR FACE.

Uncle Sam “shows” Missouri farmer, issues $90,000 fine for selling rabbits

You can’t make this up.  A Missouri man, presumably trying to make a living in the era of Hope and Change, has been fined more than twice the cost of a Chevy Volt for illegally selling rabbits.  John …

Game On: Pawlenty calls for phase-out of ethanol subsidies

Filed under: Elections & Voting,In The News,The Republicans - 26 May 2011

Tim Pawlenty is serious. I’ve been saying for awhile that a ticket with Pawlenty, a two-term governor from Minnesota, at the top, and a galvanizer – an Allen West or a Marco Rubio – at the bottom, can bring …
