Breitbart has Some Fun at CPAC

February 11, 2012

Every February the CPAC convention meets to rally conservatives and make establishment Republicans either squirm or figure out who to pretend to support this cycle.  Outside (and inside) the CPAC convention in DC this year, the Occupy rubes showed up — some of whom are actually getting paid by labor unions to be there!  Astroturf, [...]

Welfare State Burns in France

October 18, 2010

The major issue all Western nations must deal with in the 21st Century is addressing the gap between what our governments (the “welfare state”, “social democracy”, or “big government”) have promised their constituents and those government’s ability to make good on their promises.  No country will be immune, and America’s moment is coming.

April 6, 2010

The D.C. Court of Appeals today issued a ruling that stated that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) does not have the authority to regulate internet traffic, thus putting a huge roadblock in front of the Net Neutrality movement.  One of the centerpieces of the Nutroots’ agenda, Net Neutrality (like many liberal ideas) is a concept [...]

October 13, 2009

Olympia Snowe decided today that she would give her Finance Committee vote to the monstrously inept Baucus Plan on health care (aka the Flaming Bag of Crap).  Here are some of her remarks: OK.  At this point, if this is where Olympia Snowe is politically, it gives great insight into her future votes.  “When history [...]

May 27, 2009

One of the arguments against big government and government interference in the economy is government’s unique position to grant political favors to political allies, or to punish one’s political enemies.  One of the many reasons Conservatives believe in limited government is to reduce the potential for corruption, political favors, and political punishment from the government.

Grow a Spine for a Ray of Hope

January 30, 2009

Rasmussen Reports has a new poll out showing that only 42 percent of the American people support Barack Obama’s stimulus package. That’s down three points from a week ago.
