You remember the infamous lie: “If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance. Period” Well that lie was repeated by Democrats across the country. Now some of those Democrats are facing an uphill battle for reelection. With the Democrats in danger of losing the Senate, Obame will delay the implementation of obamacare. The […]
Later this year, on the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, I’m going to be writing an article about how I view that war – but I’ll give one spoiler right now: the reason the war started, ultimately, was because the Germans thought they could win it. That is why all […]
Then, Candidate Obama: “You know, I taught Constitutional Law for ten years. I take the Constitution very seriously,” he said. “The biggest problems that we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all… “And that’s […]
Hilarious, but unfortunately all too true:
We’ve got stories that Venezuela’s government is importing Cuban mercenaries to suppress revolution while the President of Ukraine has fled Kiev. Elsewhere, Syria is still a blood bath, the Taliban are poised to return to power in Afghanistan five minutes after we leave and the war clouds continue to grow in the Asia-Pacific theater. Just […]
Trouble is, they are right: Just read this and weep for our future. “David Wise is at the top of his sport. He’s always smiling among his friends and competitors, however, he’s not like the rest of the field. He is mature. Not to say the rest of the freestyle skiers of halfpipe are not […]
Churchill once said that if Hitler had invaded hell, he would have made at least a favorable reference to the devil in the House of Commons. That was to put it a bit extreme, of course, but Churchill was trying to point out the gravity of the situation. There wasn’t anything more important for him […]
State Fiscal Condition: Ranking the 50 States New research from Sarah Arnett examines states’ abilities to meet their financial obligations in the face of state budget challenges that have far outlasted the Great Recession. Fiscal simulations by the Government Accountability Office suggest that despite recent gains in tax revenues and pension assets, the long-term outlook […]
Our liberals feel that they are on the side of history – that things always go their way in the long term and that the United States is certain to eventually be a social democratic nation. Perhaps, but it does seem there are some bumps on the way: The Democratic Party’s biggest super PAC, recently […]
Interesting: Four Republican-leaning groups with close ties to the party’s leadership in Congress — Crossroads and its “super PAC” affiliate, the Congressional Leadership Fund, and Young Guns Action — raised a combined $7.7 million in 2013. Show More Summary
A little primer regarding the ‘minimum wage.’ Understand exactly what a hike in the ‘minimum wage’ entails. A compulsory hike in the minimum wage means that the price of productivity will increase. This means that the level of what one used to purchase per dollar is less; therefore, one will be required to spend more […]
From Volokh Conspiracy: …One other point that I find really interesting and important about Haidt’s work is his findings on the ability of different groups to empathize across these ideological divides. So in his book (p. 287) Haidt reports on the following experiment: after determining whether someone is liberal or conservative, he then has each […]
Yep, just three more years before Obama is gone. Out the door. No longer matters. Can’t screw up things any more – at least, not in a way that we’ll have to care about. And, Barry, it isn’t racism which is making us dislike you – its the whole incompetent fool thing which is getting […]
Dear Speaker Boehner: There is nothing I’d like better than to keep the United States House of Representatives in conservative hands. Regarding that issue, we wholeheartedly agree. In that spirit, could you kindly resign your tenure as Speaker of the House? Under your leadership, Obamacare is still the law of the land. Those responsible for […]
And, as you might guess, he’s in favor of the experts: …I fear we are witnessing the “death of expertise”: a Google-fueled, Wikipedia-based, blog-sodden collapse of any division between professionals and laymen, students and teachers, knowers and wonderers – in other words, between those of any achievement in an area and those with none at […]
Al Qaeda Stronger than Before This pResident’s War on Terror, …. uh… ahem…. excuse me…. War on Man-Caused Disasters is an utter failure. From announcing when he was pulling out of Iraq, against anyone’s sane judgement, to tying the hands of our soldiers when it comes to engagements in Afghanistan, (where there are higher incidents of […]
Spreading like wildfire around the country: There’s nothing like a guy with a few million bucks to lend instant credibility to a previously penny-ante movement to split up the state of California. Venture capitalist Tim Draper of Silicon Valley has filed paperwork for a November ballot measure that would divide California into six states, calling […]
Tell us something we did not already know! The Affordable Care Act contains provisions for “death panels,” which decide which critically-ill patients receive care and which won’t, according to Mark Halperin, senior political analyst for Time magazine. “It’s built into the plan. It’s not like a guess or like a judgment. That’s going to be … … Continue reading ?
With the capture of Fallujah by al-Qaeda-linked Islamists and the clear deterioration of Afghanistan, it is time we both admit these wars have been lost, and draw some conclusions about them. 1. Get out of the UN. It was set up to keep the peace; peace was broken less than two years after it was … … Continue reading ?
Have a happy New Years – and let’s hope that 2014 works out better than the miserable, unlamented 2013!
