Economic Stagnation? Obama keeps telling “we’re fine”? Rest of us?

by Skip April 20, 2016

Not so much – the economic growth in the US has averaged 2% or lower since Obama became President (“sucked” squared) – from Cafe Hayek, it seems that Obama (like FDR before him) is himself the root cause:  Here’s Steve Hanke on the slow-down in economic growth of the past few years.  A slice (link […]

I have a question, a very simple question, for US Speaker of the House Paul Ryan…

by Skip April 18, 2016

President Obama’s executive amnesty represents a “threat” to America’s very system of government, according to House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).  “The Constitution is clear: Presidents don’t write laws, Congress does,” Ryan said Monday ahead of oral arguments before the Supreme Court in United States v. Texas. “Presidents may disagree with the laws, but they […]

One reason I’m a Conservatarian and not a Libertarian

by Skip April 10, 2016

I have always been skeptical on the Libertarian stance that if the US just concentrated on Free Trade with all other countries, military incursions will be greatly reduced and maybe to zero as you don’t fight with your trade partners.  So for them (former Ron and to a less extent, Rand Paul supporters), we really could […]

Leftists get Americans Killed

by Don March 28, 2016

Whatever beneficent sounding name the Marxist leftists now want to be called (e.g., Liberals, Progressives, Democratic Socialists) to hide their real intentions, they are getting lots of people killed.  (And, I am not referring to the murders (Democide) of over 100 million un-tried and un-convicted citizens in the last century by the “utopian” governments the […]

The Bamster has finally picked a date for the SCOTUS nomination ball. Some Judge by the name of Merrick Garland. Here are some wild generalizations about Judge Garland I found on the internet. WHO IS MERRICK GARLAND? President Obama wants to move the Supreme Court dramatically to the left to cement his liberal legacy for […]

Question of the year – Brendan O’Neill

by Susan Olsen March 16, 2016

““Unless you think Trump is an insanely powerful political maestro who in the space of six months has utterly altered the character of America, then you have to conclude that the current ugliness and division everyone is complaining about has been brewing over the past eight years of Obamaism and ‘politics of hope’. For liberals […]

Blogline of the Day – optics

by Skip March 14, 2016

Sasha and Malia Obama Wore $20K Dresses to the Canada State Dinner. When teenagers wear dresses that cost more than many Americans make, it’s easy to see why Bernie and Donald are getting traction. Look, “if Obama can afford it, why not?” was the first thing to come to mind.  Then the second was how […]

Blood for Oil

The next time a left-winger goes BDS on you over Iraq feed them a reality sandwich. (That’s Bush Derangement Syndrome not the anti-Israel Boycott Divestment and Sanctions.) The reason for the military action, Obama then claimed, was the danger of a humanitarian catastrophe caused by Qaddafi’s forces attacking civilians. The real reason was that France’s access to Libyan sweet […]

Blogline of the Day – If they had done their job correctly…

by Skip February 28, 2016

Just a reminder; If “mainstream Republicans” had fought as hard against Obama in 2008 and 2012, they wouldn’t have to worry about Trump now. Or if they did their jobs right when in office, they wouldn’t have created the vacuum that has their base questioning “and we vote for them…..why?”.  They have brought him (and […]

And given that she is running to be Obama’s third term, Hillary is absolutely OK with this: Growth foregone? No problema as long as she has the control.  This is the greed of politicians – as long as they are in control, nothing else matters. (H/T: CNSNews)

Trust is fading that the US Senate Republicans will not cave to Obama on Supreme Court nominee

by Skip February 19, 2016

“Tipping Point“ And the incessant “asks” for money (with little to show for it in terms of the Conservative agenda being being implemented) have become tiresome and irritating.  A ‘Grok reader responds to yet another “ask” with a promise (emphasis mine): Earlier today I received an email from Lauren Lofstrom, national finance director for Ted […]

Senator Ben Sasse: I will advise and here’s how you get my consent, President Obama

by Skip February 18, 2016

The Constitution states that the President is to nominate to the Supreme Court, the Senate is to advise and consent.  The two are completely separate and are dependent only in that the President must first nominate.  The Senate is to advise and Senator Sasse is about to do so: “One sub-part of your job is […]

I make this prediction – because the DC Republicans are more fearful of the media, the Congressional Democrats, and Obama in pursuit of their seats, we’ll be seeing more of this.  Once again, we see the utter disdain for their voters (that would be us) with their fixed insistence of “where else will they go” […]
