Valerie Jarrett’s “Facts” Reveal the Big Plan

October 29, 2013

Some voices have argued that the real intention of Obamacare was to lay the foundation for an eventual single-payer health care system.  This isn’t a secret — the left implies that very point often! However, the only way that happens is if Obamacare creates the conditions for a government takeover.  That’ll mean introducing chaos into [...]

On the Eve of 2013, Two Contrasting Views of America

December 31, 2012

While going through my routine Internet rounds this morning I needed only go to Hot Air to find two articles which so perfectly contrast the main philosophical struggle in America today. Here’s a New York Times editorial simply titled “Let’s Give Up on the Constitution.”  It is modern progressivism in its essence. This article contains [...]

“Occupy” Rhetoric to Haunt Dems

November 19, 2011

Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) used “occupy” rhetoric on Thursday to express her will that entitlements be taken off the table during the ill-fated Super Committee negotiations to deal with the deficit.  Tina Korbe, writing for Hot Air, did an excellent job exposing the many obvious problems with Mikulski’s argument. However, not only is Mikulski’s argument [...]

Is Global Warming Up in Smoke?

May 15, 2011

Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW). If you believe in it, then the world is on fire, the sky is falling, and we’re all going to die because of our past and present sins!  Damn the industrial age, the capitalist system, and the deniers or we’ll destroy the planet!  As a result, one can appreciate the fervor [...]

9.0%

February 4, 2011

Despite the inclement weather, the unemployment rate cheerily lowered from 9.4% in December to 9.0% in January!  Some are quite pleased and the lower number can only mean we’re moving in the right direction.  Right? Unfortunately, no.  The figure being released is the “U3″ number which only counts those still looking for work who can’t [...]

James O’Keefe Exposes the NJEA

October 27, 2010

James O’Keefe’s organization, Project Veritas, which promotes “modern day muckrakers,” has a scathing series of videos highlighting the cavalier attitude as well as the abuse and fraud with which the NJEA (the state-level teachers union) has been involved.  Remember, O’Keefe was involved in exposing ACORN’s mischief last year. As a teacher I’m embarrassed by all [...]

Ruling Class Echoes in Delaware Senate Race

September 14, 2010

So you know, this is a cathartic Republican’s suck post written before today’s election results are in… Today is primary day in a number of states, including Delaware:  Tea Party-backed Christine O’Donnell versus establishment pro-choice Democrat-friendly RINO Mike Castle is the marquee match-up. The O’Donnell/Castle race symbolizes major issues which I think need to be [...]

Ron Paul is Not the Ideal Tea Party Candidate

February 9, 2010

Allahpundit is shocked — shocked — that Tea Party activists are going after Ron Paul by putting up primary challengers.  He sees Paul as a small-government libertarian that should fit right into the Tea Party movement.  In fact, Paul looks at himself as the founder of the movement (incorrectly so).  While Paul may appeal to [...]

Drive-By Conservatives Shamelessly Misrepresent Sarah Palin On Stimulus

February 1, 2009

HotAir’s Allahpundit has made it known for quite some time that he is no fan of Sarah Palin.  In the world of political discourse and debate, that is fine.  People can have differing opinions and views on who would make the best candidates (I personally think that Sarah Palin has a great future in the [...]

“N’Obama” on SNL “No Funny”

September 21, 2008

Hot Air has posted last night’s SNL skit depicting John McCain as willing to approve any ad whatsoever, despite to the obvious distortions, lies, or ridiculousness.  However, the truth is something a bit different, which makes the skit not so funny.  This editorial by the New Hampshire Union Leader articulates the larger point as to why [...]

Obama: “Did I Mention He’s Black?”

June 22, 2008

The Obama campaign is preemptively trying to use the race issue to associate those Republicans who think he’s too inexperienced to become President with those who would use his “funny name” and his color against him.  Politics as usual from “Mr. Hope and Change” once again. Remember this one: H/T Hot Air.
