Seeing Red

If you have not seen the recent polling from Rasmussen it’s not pretty for Paul Hodes.   He loses to everyone by a significant margin.  It might be better than the beating he’d have taken if he tried to retain his congressional seat, but with only 7 months to go and not one single thing on the …

If The Racist Shoe Fits

The people who insisted that the TEA Party movement didnot exist, that it would never amount to much, that it was just a flash in the pan movement, that it was just a few disgruntled right wingers, that it was run by the Republican party, that it answered to Rush Limbaugh, and that it was a …

Rumors Of A Recovery…

As rumors of the recovery continue, consider this.  The same willing media that over emphaszied the failing economy to get democrats elected is the same willing media that is selling a recovery to protect them now that they are in office.

  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 …

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 …
