Notable Quote – Professor Michael Huemer

by Skip January 21, 2015

First, given the existence of a powerful government, the people who are most likely to wind up in control of that government are those who (a) have the greatest drive for power, (b) have the skills needed for seizing it (for example, the ability to intimidate or manipulate others), and (c) are unperturbed by moral […]

So, Republicans SOTU responses tell English speakers one thing on Immigration, Spanish another?

by Skip January 21, 2015

It seems like the Republicans may be looking at us in the base as being all LIVs (Low Information Voters)?  Haven’t they’ve seen what has happened to others in the past that tried this stunt? Reformatted, emphasis mine: Pro-amnesty Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL), in delivering the Republican’s Spanish-language response to the State of the Union […]

Carly Fiorina completely attacks Valerie Jarreet over White House gender pay gap

by Skip January 21, 2015

We’ve pointed this out before – even as Obama and his Administration castigate the guy-gal pay differential, we have dryly noted that the White House doesn’t even bother with the pretense of following its rhetoric in the real world.  Yes folks, women are being discriminated against even in that bastion of Progressivism, the Obama White […]

Data Point – Medium Household Income

by Skip January 21, 2015

Obama said that we were “rising” as the recession has been over; “the shadow of crisis has passed”.  Er, facts are stubborn things and a lot of the middle class doubts his words of fealty to them as his policies have done them little good: Income is down for the middle class and that’s best […]

I watched SOTU (State of the Union) address last nite so you didn’t have to.  Live tweeted out my reactions (more than a few of them, go to @GraniteGrok) as well as retweeted others that I caught (TweetDeck is REALLY humming fast!).  But this one caught my eye as a number of sites put up […]

I didn’t watch the State of the Union Speech last night because according to my on-screen guide it was a rerun.  But there are those who felt they had to endure the torture of listening to another speech by Obama about Obama.  They must not be on the short list for an iPod full of […]
