The Predictable Liberals

| August 17, 2009

The Left is predictable in the how they deal with uncomfortable truths: First, deny it (I did not have … with that women) Second, attack the other side by giving them dismissive labels ( nazis, birthers) Last, but not least,the old standby: “Everyone does it.” This step was taken in the msnbc acticle, “Obama birthplace […]

Why Planned Economies Fail

| August 12, 2009

There is a very good reason why planned economies fail, the control system (the Government) is extremely simplistic with respect to the system they’re trying to regulate.  You have some 10,000 people trying to out-guess 300,000,000 people.  Moreover, each of those 300,000,000 people make MANY decisions each and every day about what they’re going to […]

Media Ignored Liberal Protest

| August 12, 2009

In 2002, then President Bush went to Portland Oregon for a fundraiser. The Liberals attacked: The Bush motorcade was stoned while chants of  “Bush is a Terrorist” rang out. A man held a large photo of Bush that had been doctored to show a gun barrel pressed against his temple. A placard read “BUSH Wanted […]

Not Real, Huh?

| August 12, 2009

The “liberal” press would have you believe that ObamaCare resistance is not real, yet in the “Wall Street Journal” you find: But you can’t get people to leave their homes and go to a meeting with a congressman (of all people) unless they are engaged to the point of passion. And what tends to agitate […]

ObamaCare: The Bottom Line

| August 12, 2009

I think any casual reading of this bill will make three things extremely clear: ObamaCare = Abortion (a covered procedure) ObamaCare = Euthanasia (see “Cash for Geezers” on this blog) ObamaCare = Rationing (where’s the incentive to provide real medical care?) Any arguments to the contrary are simply not based on the language of the […]

The Real Astroturf: Liberal’s response to the Tea Party Movment

| August 12, 2009

The Left has called out its Goons.  The unions and ACORN are out in force.  Now who is manufacturing a grassroots movement? How do these goons make their livings?  Just who signs their pay checks? The only violence I have seen to date is by the Left and directed at the concerned citizens exercising their […]

Cash For Geezers Program

| August 7, 2009

A Political cartoon by Chuck Asay (click to see it) introduces the “Cash for Geezers Program”, AKA ObamaCare.  I’d say Chuck is right on the money with this one.  I don’t think that anyone has had the time to read, let alone reflect on the ramifications of this bill.   There is evidence that Congress […]

The Great “Astroturf” Movement

| August 6, 2009

What is really irking the left is that the minority-driven tactics that they have been using to influence public opinion for the past five decades have now been rightfully claimed by the “silent majority” and to good effect.  Movements are much more effective when they represent a MAJOR portion of the population.  The pressure  mounts […]

Gangland Politics

| August 4, 2009

Press release from the House “COMMITTEE ON OVERSIGHT AND GOVERNMENT REFORM: Read the whole Press  Release The memo referenced above shows that at least two cabinet-level secretaries are warning the State of Arizona that if their Senator continues to question the use of TARP funds then those funds could be removed from the State.  “Play […]

Oops, Where did the Money Go

| August 4, 2009

Another thing the Obama Administration ain’t telling the public, government revenues are down, way down.  It was bad enough when the Federal income was steady, but now it’s worse. “Other figures in an Associated Press analysis underscore the recession’s impact: Individual income tax receipts are down 22 percent from a year ago. Corporate income taxes […]
