Francona Latest Victim of Red Sox Collapse

September 30, 2011

Terry Francona, manager of the Boston Red Sox, is not having the options on his contract extended for next season.  That’s a nice way of saying “you’re fired” after an absolutely historic September collapse for the Boston Red Sox, who from May to August scared just about everyone in the MLB with their prolific offense [...]

Biden — It’s Our Economy

September 30, 2011

Uh oh!  The gaffe-tastic Vice President Joe Biden has drifted off the reservation once again, this time speaking the truth:  that this economy belongs to the Obama administration and the people have every right to judge them on it going into the 2012 Election. I’m not sure if this is merely a moment of lucidity [...]

September 28, 2011

Recently, former White House Budget Director Peter Orszag revealed some of his thoughts regarding his government philosophy: [my bold] “…The country’s political polarization was growing worse — harming Washington’s ability to do the basic, necessary work of governing….  [W]e need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized [...]

Gallup: Our Government is Totally Negatory

September 26, 2011

Maybe the people are starting to get it.  Gallup just released a series of polls, one of which indicates that 50% of respondents believed that the federal government “poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens.” Again, the number in the poll is not as important as the trend, which has [...]

Herman Cain Wins Florida Straw Poll — by a Lot!

September 25, 2011

What is one to make of Herman Cain’s 37% plurality in yesterday’s Florida straw poll?  Perry got about 15%, with Romney nearby at 14%, followed closely by Santorum at 11% with Bachmann at 1.5% under-performing even Jon Huntsman (if that’s even possible). Some in the GOP establishment have inferred that the Cain’s win was a [...]

EPA Targets Asthma Inhalers

September 24, 2011

Through an Obama Administration EPA dictate, by 2012 the old-style CFC-filled asthma inhaler will be replaced by a more environmentally-friendly one which will cost nearly twice as much and will not work in the same way as the present inhalers. As someone who outgrew childhood asthma (only to replace it with annoying seasonal allergies), I [...]

Perry Judges Conservative Hearts on In-state Tuition for Illegals

September 23, 2011

In the Fox News/Google GOP Debate last night Perry said the following: And I thought just liberals called responsible conservative positions heartless! Not anymore, apparently. This is Governor Gardasil‘s second substantial strike against him as far as I’m concerned.  First, this is a distracting social issue position that only helps Democrats by taking the focus [...]

A-Jad Provokes Walkout at UN

September 22, 2011

Finally, the good kind of unity at the United Nations!  After Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad started tearing into the “arrogant powers” of United States and the West during his UN speech, more than 30 countries got up and walked out!  Wandering between Holocaust denial, the trademark Zionist conspiracy and criticizing America’s Africa policy (of all [...]

Obama 2012: Making His Stand on the Hill of Class Warfare

September 19, 2011

How about soaking $1.5 trillion out of the “rich” in the spirit of “fairness” in order to reduce the deficit and jump start this economy? Silly, right?  Nonetheless, President Obama suggested just that, unveiling his big plan to fix the economy today, drawing the line in the sand and deciding to choose the unabashed class [...]

Daniel Hannan Points to the Writing on the Wall

September 16, 2011

The problem with modern liberalism is that its cures for every societal illness are the same poisons that caused the sickness in the first place.  Daniel Hannan, Conservative MEP from the UK, has been saying this for years in regard to statism in general and the centralization of authority in European Union in particular.  He [...]

Even “Jersey Shore” was on the Dole

September 15, 2011

You knew somewhere deep down that this one was coming:  apparently, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority approved nearly $420,000 of taxpayer funds to cover production costs associated with the 2009 season of MTV’s Jersey Shore. I’m sorry, but a sleazy fist-pumping Guido-promoting MTV reality show didn’t need any more “stimulus” — I think you [...]

The Forced False Choice in Overregulated Health Care

September 15, 2011

Ann Coulter has a great column this week.  She tackled a few topics with her typical humor, but I liked the part about health care.  Here’s the abridged version of Annie C. on health care: Why are the only two options always a behemoth government program or the guy dies? The unabridged version is worth [...]

Pat Robertson: In Mild Sickness and in Health, ‘Til Kind of a Death Do We Part

September 15, 2011

With cohabitation the norm, divorce skyrocketing, boys “marrying” boys, adultery somewhat destigmatized, and the term “baby daddy” increasingly slipped into ordinary conversation without a double take, there is no doubt that the sanctity of marriage as understood by western civilization for millennia isn’t as respected as it should be.  You might even say that marriage [...]

Obama’s New Stimulus Bill Would Make it Illegal to Discriminate Against the Unemployed

September 14, 2011

Reason number 1056 why the President’s latest stimulus bill is not going to get through Congress:  those who are unemployed and looking for a job who feel that they were not hired because of their employment status would be able to file a discrimination lawsuit. The statist sounding “Prohibition of Discrimination in Employment on the [...]

Barack Obama and the Not So Golden Snitch

September 14, 2011

With average unemployment rate nearly four points higher than it was under George W. Bush, sluggish economic growth, and a soaring national debt, people just don’t seem to love Barack Obama as much as they used to.  You might even say the American people have had enough of him.  Last night, the Republicans won a [...]

Bobby Jindal Endorses Perry While Romney Secures Highly Coveted T-Paw Endorsement

September 13, 2011

Campaign endorsement season is finally upon us.  Yesterday, both republican frontrunners in the 2012 race received noteworthy endorsements.  Rick Perry landed an endorsement from Bobby Jindal, the popular Governor of Louisiana while Mitt Romney earned the endorsement of his former rival Tim Pawlenty.  You remember him, the guy who called Romney’s health care plan “Obamneycare?” [...]

Target: Spongebob?

September 12, 2011

Apparently, a study of 60 kids demonstrated that watching Spongebob Squarepants can rot your brain, especially if you’re a four-year-old.  You will be more hungry and do poorly on mental function tests compared with those watching a boring cartoon. I don’t know what these researchers in Virginia have against Spongebob, but their sampling was worse [...]

A Decade Since 9/11

September 11, 2011

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.  It was one of those terrible “where were you?” moments those who remember Pearl Harbor or the Kennedy assassination can empathize with.  We share our stories when the opportunity arises.  We still remember those who’ve given their lives in the War on Terror, especially those whose [...]

Egyptian Protesters Attack Israeli Embassy

September 10, 2011

Seven months since the American-condoned ouster of long time Egyptian strongman Hosni Mubarak, the people are restless.  The country has no planned elections and a military junta still reigns over the Earth’s largest Arab nation.  With a sense of rising expectations, small incidents take on deeper severity. It is in this context that Egyptian protests [...]

Obama’s Army of Union Thugs

September 6, 2011

Here’s more lowering the rhetoric from the union left (on Labor Day of all times): No comment from Obama, who attended this event and spoke following Hoffa.  Why would he?  These thugs are one of the few constituencies he has left.

Here’s new video which has surfaced showing the immediate aftermath of the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 near Shanksville on 9/11: While this video adds more poignancy to the upcoming 10th anniversary of 9/11, I think the more footage we see the better.

Israeli Protesters Demand Their Goodies Too

September 4, 2011

With the United Nations on the verge of royally screwing Israel by arbitrarily declaring Palestine an independent state (by the way, who will run it, Hamas or Fatah?), the recipient middle class across Israel has been taking to the streets to demand “social justice” and economic reforms from the Netanyahu government.  The protesters want, among [...]

“Fast and Furious” Scandal Keeps Growing

September 3, 2011

Apparently, the White House knew more than they were letting on about “Fast and Furious” in the days after a border patrol agent Brian Terry was shot and killed by one of the guns clandestinely sold to Mexican drug gangs.  The White House obviously disputes any new issues which have arisen from the newly discovered [...]

Obama Takes on the NFL

September 1, 2011

In the aftermath of yesterday’s media scuffle between the White House and Speaker Boehner, President Obama capitulated, moving the date of the President’s big economic speech to Thursday the 8th, rather than Republican Debate Night, Wednesday the 7th.  An obvious political ploy, the President sought to upstage the GOP field while taking the steam out [...]
