Sebelius The Latest In Long Line of Obama Apointee Tax Cheats

March 31, 2009

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius is the latest in a long line of Obama cabinet appointees to have tax problems.  It seems that the nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services has been forced to amend her tax returns from 2005 to 2007 to account for $7,000 in back-taxes plus interest.  Sebelius, known for her radical [...]

On the Government Couch

March 31, 2009

Depressed?  Dejected?  Sad?  Unemployed?  Suicidal? Well, the government has got just the site for you!  Forget your therapist, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)  has set up a guide to “Getting Through Tough Economic Times“!   Glad to see the government is squeezing more private sector therapy jobs through boosting SAMHSA staff members, on top [...]

Liberals Don’t Care About The Rule of Law

March 31, 2009

Glenn Beck interviewed the Connecticut Attorney General (D-CT) yesterday on his Fox News television show regarding the Connecticut AG’s call to punish those who received bonuses for AIG.  As well as challenging him on why he was going after AIG executives but not fellow party member Chris Dodd, who is plagued with scandal, Beck kept [...]

They Huff. They Puff. But They Won’t Blow the Blogs Down.

March 31, 2009

Andrew Breitbart has a excellent piece in the Washington Times on liberal trolling of conservative websites.  According to Breitbart, the recent uptick in liberal trolling on the right side of the blogosphere is the result of a coordinated effort.  This is especially interesting to us because this website and a mid-sized blog on our blogroll [...]

It’s Too Late for Obamanomics

March 30, 2009

The Chinese, the Czechs, the French and the Germans all have a similar thing to say:  You, America, are not going to take us down a road we know very well now that large segments of our populations have tasted the middle class and want to keep it.  It is very embarrassing to be even [...]

The Final Four are Here!

March 29, 2009

And I only picked one of them!  AARGH!!!  I am completely doomed in my office pool as Louisville was supposed to defeat Pitt for the Championship.  Alas, no.  Both fell this weekend.  The only one I picked in the Final Four was UNC… who was supposed to lose to Pitt next Saturday!  It’s never going to [...]

Leaving the Lights On Tonight

March 28, 2009

“Earth Hour” dweebs around the planet want to have a billion people worldwide turn their lights off between 8:30 and 9:30 this evening to protect us all against the horrors of “global warming.”  Of course, they’ll claim a momentous victory even though after their friends, contributors to the ‘global warming” hysteria in Greece and other snotty privileged developed [...]

Top 10 List of Annoying Millennial Habits

March 27, 2009

Quin Hillyer from American Spectatorhas been spot on lately.  Here’s his latest piece ripping on the bad habits of Millennials and late X-ers (or as he calls them, the “under 30” crowd). I teach Millennials and laughed out loud most of the way down the page!  Millennials, as the “Baby Boom Echo” or ”Echo Boomers,” suffer from [...]

The Role of Tax Deductions

March 27, 2009

There’s an interesting debate going on over at the corner right now over the role of tax deductions from a Conservative point of view.  Jerry Taylor of Cato is arguing that we should, as Conservatives, be against the mortgage deduction and welcome Obama’s scaling of it back because government should not be in the business [...]

Government Caused this Crisis, Not Deregulation

March 27, 2009

One of the great sophistries of the current economic crisis, expounded by the President himself, is that it was caused by “deregulation.”  It sounds good in a stump speech, and some point to the modification of the Glass-Stegall Act in 1999, which allowed investment banks to compete against traditional banks, as the culprit of this [...]

Orrin Hatch Targets BCS

March 26, 2009

College football’s method of determining a national champion has been the subject of debate for decades.  One side argues that the current system represents a tradition that should be preserved and guarantees one of the most meaningful regular seasons in all of sports.  Others argue that the current system is too subjective and excludes too [...]

Crowder Started the Obama Song

March 26, 2009

This is the first night this week I’ve had a real chance to blog.  Unfortunately nothing really interests me tonight.  Thankfully it’s Thursday and that means Steven Crowder has a new video.  This one’s a bit Grand Master White but it’s still not bad. If music’s not your thing, here’s another clip, from Steven’s brother [...]

Napolitano: Our “Man-Caused Disaster”

March 26, 2009

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refuses to use the word terrorism in her recent speeches, inferring terrorist attacks are merely ”man-caused disasters.”  As Obama’s administration has put more effort declaring war on semantics rather than continuing to kill and detain terrorists, we’re moving beyond a pre-9/11 mindset in my opinion, we’re just being ridiculous, asking for something [...]

Benedict Arlen Specter on the Rocks

March 26, 2009

Benedict Arlen Specter is on the rocks.  In a recent Quinnipiac poll (not the most reliable, mind you, but still).  Specter trails potential challenger Pat Toomey by 14 points, 41-27.  In an effort to save himself, Specter is currently trying to change the primary rules in Pennsylvania to allow Independents to vote for him.  I’ve [...]

Community Service Bill Marginalizes Organized Religion

March 26, 2009

The House of Representatives passed the Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act (GIVE), creating a mandate for community service among high school and college students.  The bill spends $6 billion on beefing up government-paid and sponsored national service programs, and paves the way for future mandatory service by establishing a commission to explore the feasibility [...]

Daniel Hannan Speaks Truth to Brown and the EU

March 25, 2009

The kind of political chutzpah that “Prime Minister’s Questions” junkies have experienced for years on C-SPAN finally made it to the floor of the EU.  British MP Daniel Hannan wrecks on British Prime Minister Gordon Brown in a classic Tory beat-down of bad Labour policies, this time on an international forum which everyone could see!  Check it out: “Brezhnev-era [...]

NRSC Going for the Jugular

March 25, 2009

A few weeks ago, Republicans were reluctant to criticize Barack Obama due to his “soaring popularity.”  The GOP plan was to attack Congress and the policies of the President, but not attack the President himself.  With Obama’s approval ratings coming back to earth, the GOP is now going for the jugular.  The National Republican Senatorial [...]

Down on the Dollar

March 24, 2009

The US dollar is not in good shape.  I will primarily blame Bush for this because it was during the last administration when the dollar was in free-fall for a many reasons, but nonetheless suffers greatly as a result.  Obama, however, has done nothing to fix that, in fact making the situation considerably worse by printing [...]

The Impact of Zogby’s Poll

March 24, 2009

Zogby is poised to release a poll today which will show O’s approval rating at 50-50.  Now, I will be the first to say that I don’t trust the results of Zogby’s polls any more than I trust the results of a SeeBS poll or Washington Post/ABC poll, even if like this one, it does [...]

Is The Drive-By Media Turning on Obama?

March 24, 2009

There are signs that the love affair between the mainstream media and the Obama administration are hitting a rocky patch.  After virtually ignoring Obama’s defects during the campaign and doing practically nothing to determine his qualifications for the job of President, the Drive-By media is starting to realize that Obama is simply not up to [...]

Job Fairs at Strip Clubs — Gotta Love Obamanomics!

March 23, 2009

Everybody in the Rhode Island area has either heard of or been a client of the Foxy Lady — a place of ilrepute in the midst of a town called Providence, known for all sorts of things including a “Legs and Eggs” special, while being as classy as Southern New England can do a public strip club.  [...]

Renewing Alliances with the Wrong Leaders

March 23, 2009

Part of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy agenda is to supposedly “renew alliances” and “strengthen old partnerships.”  Over the weekend, it came to light that by “old” partnerships, Obama apparently meant with former leaders of our allies rather than current leaders. In a diplomatic letter sent to France, Obama said: I am certain that we [...]

Lia Mills on Abortion

March 22, 2009

I taught Roe v. Wade in class this week and was shockingly objective.  It’s really hard when you’re a pro-life Catholic teaching in a public school, being morally opposed to abortion as a form of birth control — I just think it’s sick.  I felt like I needed a bath and confession afterwards.  I NEVER say “fetus”; [...]

Obama Knocks Those with Special Needs

March 21, 2009

Obama’s recent appearance on Leno was supposed to be a public relations fluff gig.  It hasn’t turned out that way.  Obama believes that he has to push his celebrity “cool” factor for some kind of connection with the other half.  Either that or deal with the mess we’re all in.  So, while knocking his ability to [...]

Operation Iraqi Freedom — Plus Six

March 20, 2009

Six years ago, a few hours before dawn on March 20, 2003, “Operation Iraqi Freedom” officially began.  It was still March 19th here in the States, so that’s why the anniversary was noted in yesterday’s media coverage.  It took 21 days to affect regime change, and it’s taken six years to secure that nation to [...]

The Full Extent of the British Snub

March 20, 2009

The full extent of the Obama Administration snub of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has fully come to light with an article in today’s U.K. Telegraph.  While much criticism had been heaped upon Obama administration surrounding his seemingly thoughtless gift of 25 DVDs of American Movie Classics, it is reported that Brown was genuinely moved [...]

Obama Unable to Focus

March 20, 2009

I am beginning to wonder if Barack Obama has a focusing problem. The hallmark of successful presidents is that they usually take a handful of issues as signature issues and focus with laser-like precision on them until they are passed.  That is not to say a true leader cannot handle multiple things at once, but [...]

Coach K Stuffs Obama

March 19, 2009

I laughed when I heard about this story from the AP this morning regarding what legendary Duke Blue Devils Mens Basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski said about Obama’s picks: “Somebody said that we’re not in President Obama’s Final Four, and as much as I respect what he’s doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus [...]

Steven Crowder on Multiculturalism

March 19, 2009

“There is no room for hyphenated Americans.”  Well said Steven. Legal immigrants who come to America from other parts of the world to join the club should be welcomed.  People are people and frankly, many American citizens could learn a great deal from our legal immigrant friends who are aware of the fact that the [...]

Gitmo Terrorists in Our Backyard

March 19, 2009

Attorney General Eric Holder has announced that some Gitmo detainees will end up being released, free as a bird, within the boarders of the United States. Two months ago, when Obama signed the executive order to close Club Gitmo, making us a nation less safe, people were concerned about former Gitmo detainees in federal prisons [...]
