Bush 2010

The Democrat National Congressional Committee (DNCC) has announce plans for their collectivist reelection strategy for congressional House members in November.  Run against George Bush.  Oh yeah baby.  The idea is to claim that any Republican is just like Bush and voting for them is a vote for failed policies of the past.  I waited for …

Stock Up On Brown Shirts

  The Obama Administration, through the labor deprtment, is making unpaid internships at corporations illegal.  Erick Erickson at Red State has the good here.  But non-profits and paid internships are still OK. So what does this mean? It keeps them out of the free market system.  It will invariably drive school age kids into left …

Republicans For Obama

  Back in November 2007 Obama For America published a press release listing 68 New Hampshire Republicans who had publicly announced their support for Obama.  One signatory was quoted thusly… “Barack Obama is the only candidate who will be able to break the partisan logjam and inspire Americans to come together around real solutions.” This of …

Starving Leeches

In every argument convenient to their agenda, liberals like to whine about ‘sustainable resources.’  They pride themselves on their promise to manage resources for the future.  They brag about their compassion for the environment.  But liberals are the worst resource managers the world has ever seen because they ignore the single most important resource of …

Deficit Deceit

Liberalisms, like “this won’t increase the deficit,” or “this will reduce the deficit,” or “John Lynch will never leave a deficit” are misleading regurgitations whose success as a political tool rely entirely on the electorates inability to ask the follow-up question.  How?    Here’s an example.  John Lynch has 100 apples to use.  The left wing …

Hate Pimps

  Anyone else getting bored with the left wing hate meme? I know I am.  It’s like living with some insane relative whose run out of psychotropic meds.  Or how about that dog from America’s funnies home videos?  He’s using his nose to roll a rock around the yard and the voice over is “Pushing …

No Lessons Learned

Representative Shea-Porter, when given a simple solution invariably chooses the more complex one because it does a better job of hiding the true costs and intentions of any given legislative endeavor.  Insurance reform is the fine example, but a more obvious choice is Cap and Trade.  A basic sin-tax on carbon, like those on tobacco, would …

Sit Carol Sit

  After a brief review of the game film from Rep Carol Shea-Porters–she’s calling them Town Halls–I’ve decided that any and all future interaction could be just as (or perhaps more) productive if we used either a cardboard standee of the congresswoman with three to five pre-recorded responses played by an aid (Assuming there is no loose …

Socialized Education

  The federal college-loan money-grab was crammed into the Health Insurance boondoggle like the last blue frosted donut testing the frontiers of elasticity on our now calorically challenged, spandex wearing constitution.  And unlike the obvious fascism of the bank takeovers and auto industry takeovers–and of course the health industry takeover, this one was not over advertised. While …

There Will Be No Drilling

  Mr. Obama tossed out a rhetorical bone to the pro-carbon energy crowd by granting indulgences to the oil industry.  He promised to take their money for mineral rights leases but this is a feint and should not be misconstrued as an admission of or desire to increase domestic oil production. First, he will not …
