Occupiers in RI Disrupt Pro-Life Rally

January 31, 2012

Last week, Rhode Island’s own Occupy rubes decided to infiltrate a Right to Life rally, shout down a priest leading a prayer, and allegedly dump condoms on a group of young female students. Nothing like a greasy, unemployed, statist useful-idiot mob to keep things classy around the Ocean State.  Also, nothing like a police force [...]

“Buffett Rule” Brouhaha Stirring

January 30, 2012

Rhode Island’s junior Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse is planning on introducing the “Buffett Rule” tax increase this week to stoke class envy and help the President’s statist agenda.  The (ah-hem) “Paying a Fair Share Bill” indicates that people with income over $1 million will automatically pay a 30% income tax rate. Since we tax income [...]

St. Louis Has First Major Parade for Iraq War Vets

January 29, 2012

Organizers in St. Louis decided that since no one had yet scheduled a major parade for returning Iraq War veterans, that they would try to put one on.  With no serious objections they did.  Here’s a video: While some of the parade’s participants will be redeployed to Afghanistan sooner or later, it speaks volumes about [...]

Stretching the Attacks Against Newt

January 27, 2012

If you’ve been paying attention to the politicking down in Florida this week, you may have noticed that Romney’s forces and his Establishment proxies launched a seemingly coordinated attack against Newt from nearly all sides and angles, even dragging Bob Dole out from retirement to hit the former Speaker. Well, today the frenzied pig-pile continued [...]

State of the Union — What You Won’t Hear Tonight

January 24, 2012

The President will give his third State of the Union address tonight at 9pm EST.  It will be filled with poll-tested decisive-sounding promises of new entitlements, he may take a shot at his prospective opponents, he’ll definitely hit Congress and remind us of his order to kill Osama Bin Laden, and he’ll lie about his [...]

Newt Sips Some Tea under the Old Palmetto Tree

January 22, 2012

Though statistically tied about a week ago, the battle for South Carolina shifted dramatically in favor of Newt Gingrich when the votes were finally counted.  Last night’s primary yielded a 40-28% Gingrich victory (thus far) over Mitt Romney.  Rick Santorum came in third place with 17%, with Ron Paul bringing up the rear with 13%.

Internet Shows It’s Influence By Killing Off SOPA

January 20, 2012

On Wednesday, the Internet protested SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act, and its counterpart bill in the Senate, PIPA.  Yesterday, we saw the effects of that protest.  Both SOPA and PIPA were effectively killed off.  In the Senate, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has suspended debate on PIPA “indefinitely”, while in the House, Rep. Lamar Smith [...]

Santorum Wins Iowa, GOP Establishment Calls it a Tie

January 19, 2012

When Mitt Romney held an eight-vote lead at the end of Iowa caucus night, there was some question as to whether the lead would hold.  Usually, states re-canvass the votes after the actual election night to account for things like mathematical and typographical errors.  This is rarely significant even in the closest of elections because [...]

Rick Perry Heading Back to Texas

January 19, 2012

Texas Governor Rick Perry announced today that he’s dropping out of the GOP race for President, admitting there’s no “viable path” to the nomination.  He then endorsed Newt Gingrich (who happens to be right on the food stamp thing). I happen to agree with Perry’s decision and his campaign assessment.  He peaked last Fall when [...]

SOPA Blackout Day – Why SOPA Needs to be Stopped

January 18, 2012

Today is SOPA Blackout day.  Hundreds of sites across the Internet, including sites such as WordPress.com and Wikipedia, have shut down in protest of a little known bill making its way through Congress known as SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act).  Other sites, such as Google, are providing information about SOPA on their homepages.  So what [...]

Newsweek: Don’t Like Obama? You Must Be Dumb

January 17, 2012

It’s a general rule that Libs for over 100 years have felt like they are the smartest people ever.  So smart, in fact, that they can run your lives, tell us what’s right and wrong, and judge us smart or dumb. So when I see that Newsweek is running a cover asking “Why are Obama’s [...]

Huntsman Out

January 16, 2012

The only 2012 Republican candidate for president who felt that the chief lesson to learn from Ronald Reagan was to be a principled moderate (gag!) and the only candidate who actually did work in the Obama Administration, Jon Huntsman, is going to announce he’s dropping out of the race today and endorsing Mitt Romney. Not [...]

Fixing the MLK Memorial

January 14, 2012

After much protest, the Interior Department has decided to fix the newly dedicated Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.  The part in question deals with Kings famous “Drum Major” quote, which was merely paraphrased on the statue.  The National Park Service plans on altering the quote to make it historically accurate, and make King sound less [...]

Virginia’s GOP Ballot is Kind of Short

January 13, 2012

As in:  Mitt Romney or Ron Paul only! As of this moment a district judge has ruled that Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry and Jon Huntsman failed to complete the paperwork in time and therefore cannot appear on the ballot when votes are taken on March 6.  Obviously, the remaining candidates are not pleased [...]

Obama Wants His $1.2 Trillion

January 12, 2012

The frustrating debt-ceiling debacle of last summer yielded two predictable outcomes:  we got little-to-none of the promised spending cuts and Obama got a free hand until after the 2012 Election to ask for a cold $1.2 trillion for raising the debt ceiling. In no way is this a victory for the American people.  Politically, though, [...]

The CDC Thinks You Drink Too Much

January 10, 2012

You’d think that big bureaucratic monoliths wouldn’t mind a sauced populace to keep the people’s mind off of big bureaucratic monoliths, but the CDC is different — it cares about you.  Their latest report shows that American’s drink way too much.  Shocker, I know! We here in America don’t really half-ass things like drinking.  If [...]

Todd Palin Tips Hat to Newt

January 9, 2012

It was reported today that Sarah Palin’s husband Todd spoke with Newt Gingrich this morning, offering his support to the Speaker’s campaign to replace Obama.  Still no word on who Sarah’s going to support.  McCain’s supporting Romney because McCain, for establishmentarian reasons, must.  Sarah will probably go rogue from her former 2008 campaign partner. I [...]

Did You Get Your Obamacare Waiver Yet?

January 7, 2012

Numbers from a Friday afternoon document dump indicate that 543,812 labor union employees have received an Obamacare waiver since last June, while only 69,813 mostly small business private sector employees did.  When I read that I couldn’t help but think about Andrew Wilkow‘s notion that “socialism is for the people, not the socialists”. It all [...]

Obama at Recess

January 5, 2012

Much has been made about President Obama’s recess appointment of Richard Cordray and three members of the NLRB, because, well, Congress is not on recess.  A pro forma session is still being in session — it was a way that Harry Reid himself prevented Dubya from making recess appointments.  So, on the surface the President’s [...]

Mitt Romney Wins Iowa Caucuses; Santorum Now Relevant

January 4, 2012

The first part isn’t as bad it sounds, but it was still a good night for Mitt Romney.  It always is when you win a caucus or a primary, especially if it is the first one.  That said, the vote was remarkably close, with Romney edging out my candidate, Rick Santorum, by just 8 votes [...]

Rick Perry Confronts a Gossip

January 3, 2012

I would like to congratulate rick Perry.  Not for tonight’s result in Iowa, but for calling out Mike Allen of the gossip website, Politico for basing a story on anonymous and unprovable sources.  I don’t think it’s wise for candidates to confront media personalities for the way the report the news.  It would probably be [...]

Mike’s Endorsement: Rick Santorum

January 3, 2012

Like Ryan and Sal, I am not overly thrilled with this year’s choices for President. My political philosophy is centered around Ronald Reagan’s belief that we are a country with a government, not the other way around.  The American people are good people.  Government must allow them to do what they do without interference.  It [...]

Sal’s Endorsement: Rick Santorum

January 3, 2012

Like Ryan, I am less than thrilled with the 2012 GOP Presidential field.  Four years ago to this very day I endorsed Mitt Romney for President – reluctantly so.  Today, I am as unsure about my choice as I was four years ago.  Throughout this whole campaign, I, along with the rest of the GOP [...]

Talking Up the “Anglosphere”

January 2, 2012

There’s been a bit of theoretical buzz out there about the future of Britain in the European Union.  Britain doesn’t quite fit in and ultimately, with the impending collapse of the euro a real possibility in the next few years, along with a hidebound European Union dragging them down, some have postulated that Britain needs [...]
