Sal’s Election Day Predictions

November 2, 2010

Two years ago, voters, angry with George W. Bush and the GOP for the economy, the bailouts, and for spending like drunken sailors, gave the Democrats complete control of both houses of Congress and the Presidency.  Pundits declared the GOP dead, and any hope at a comeback years away, and then only if the GOP [...]

More Wasteful Census Spending

March 9, 2010

I’m too stunned even to write a proper introduction to this: Dear Resident, About one week from now, you will receive a 2010 Census form in the mail.  When you receive your form, please fill it out and mail it in promptly. Your response is important.  Results from the 2010 Census will be used to [...]

Liberalism Fails Every Time it’s Tried

February 17, 2010

Liberalism fails every time it’s tried.  In an editorial today, the Wall Street Journal outlines the utter failure of Democrat liberal governance every time the American people have granted them one-party rule.  Since the 1960s, the Democrats have had control over both houses of Congress and the Presidency four times – in the late 1960s [...]

Krauthammer on the Obama Fall

January 16, 2010

Worth a read is a piece in today’s Washington Post by Charles Krauthammer, chronicling Obama’s fall from grace among the American electorate.  Krauthammer points out what many of us have been saying since the election; that the American people did not elect Obama for  his liberalism, but rather for hope and change from the previous [...]

Why Detroit Sucks by Steven Crowder

December 22, 2009

Thanks to soaring unemployment and crime rates, deteriorating infrastructure, and a downright embarrassing football team, simultaneously pitying and laughing at Detroit has unfortunately become a national pastime in recent years.  In his latest video feature, Steven Crowder continues that tradition and explores the misery that is Detroit and why liberalism is to blame. It’s amazing [...]

Obama Is Insanity Defined

December 9, 2009

A classic definition of insanity is repeating the same action over and over again, expecting different results.  Obama is insanity defined.  His much-touted stimulus (a.k.a. Porkulus) package purported to spend money on roads and bridges, give some tax breaks to small businesses (although they were tax breaks designed to produce a liberal policy objective, not [...]

Obama’s Team Lacks Private Sector Experience

December 1, 2009

Liberals and Conservatives have a fundamental difference in philosophy when it comes to private sector vs. public sector.  Liberals laud the public sector as the savior of America (the government being the solution to all problems) while Conservatives look at government as a necessary evil, and aim to keep it as limited as possible while [...]

Karl Rove Sets The Record Straight

October 3, 2009

Karl Rove appeared on the O’Reilly factor yesterday, which was guest-hosted by Juan Williams.  Williams challenged Rove on why the Bush administration did nothing to try to prevent the housing crash and the problems with Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac.  Rove sets the record straight, pointing out how the Republicans and Bush administration had a [...]

Blue State Collapse

August 4, 2009

One of the great things about our Federalist system is that it allows the states to become incubators of policy ideas, and gives the freedom of movement when those policy ideas fail or succeed.   The fate of the states is a good indicator of what kind of policies actually work, and what kind of policies [...]

Walter Cronkite Dies at 92

July 18, 2009

Deemed “the most trusted man in America,” CBS-TV journalist icon Walter Cronkite died yesterday at the age of 92.  His long and storied career in journalism spanned from World War II though the 1980s.  As a relatively new medium with only a few channels, Cronkite’s presence on the tube when JFK, MLK, and RFK were assassinated, after [...]

The End of American Economic Prominence

May 12, 2009

With the Obama administration, we are likely reaching the end of our economic financial prominence.  Obama’s proposals create an anti-competitive environment, and put us at a disadvantage with the rest of the world.  Take the Corporate Income Tax.  The U.S. Corporate Income Tax is currently set at 35%.  However, companies who do international business, and [...]

Obama’s Socialiation of America By Any Means Necessary

March 17, 2009

As Obama’s poll ratings climb back to earth, there is a concern among liberals that Obama is not up to the job.  Yet, incompetent as he may be, Obama has the capacity to fundamentally alter the economic and political landscape of this country.  Obama’s seeming incompetence may be related to the fact that he is [...]

Bring Back The L Word

March 2, 2009

During the past few months, I’ve argued that conservatives overuse the word “socialism.”  That’s not to say the word shouldn’t be used when describing certain policies from time to time.  When discussing health care for example, few words better describe the Democrats’ goal of government control than “socialism.”  Using the word as a blanket description [...]

The Inevitable Death of Liberalism

March 1, 2009

It is inevitable that Liberalism will ultimately fail.  Liberty and Freedom will always win, and liberalism will eventually collapse under its own weight.  Spending a lot of time as I do reading various news sources, scanning the conservative blogosphere, listening to talk radio, and watching the various news outlets, there seems to be an apprehension [...]

Democrat Governors Rejecting the Stimulus

February 25, 2009

Liberals are liberals, no matter where they are.  Yet, there has always been a divide between Democrat liberals in Washington, and Democrats who run the various states as Governors.  This dynamic goes beyond liberals.  Conservative Governors also tend to have a completely different perspective than Republicans in Washington.  This is primarily due to the fact [...]

Catholic and Conservative Without Contradiction

January 13, 2009

I have heard a lot over the years about how Catholics tend to be divided in their political beliefs between liberalism and conservatism.  Indeed, the Catholic electorate tends to swing back and forth between the Democrats and Republicans depending on the year.  It is widely assumed that being Catholic means that you are socially conservative [...]

Stossel on Economic Stimulus

January 10, 2009

John Stossel is one of the few Drive-By Media personalities who is right-of-center on most issues.  His “Give Me A Break” segments on ABC’s 20/20, along with his hour-long specials, are always enjoyable to watch and a refreshing break from the normal left-wing garbage that the Drive-by Media spills on a daily basis. While I [...]

The Real Ponzi Scheme

December 16, 2008

The news surrounding  the scam perpetrated by Bernard Madoff has been widely publicized in the last few days.  Madoff, using the classic Ponzi scheme, defrauded investors of over $50 billion dollars, possibly the largest private-sector scandal, and certainly the largest private-sector Ponzi scheme in history (of course, Washington stands by to give Madoff’s victims a [...]

Saxby Wins by 14 points!

December 3, 2008

Sen. Saxby Chambliss defeated Jim Martin by a landslide 14 point spread in a runoff election held in Georga yesterday.  I remember back in 2002, when Mary Landreau (D-LA) won her run-off election, the pundits were saying that it was a repudiation of the Republican victories in 2002, and proved that there was no mandate.  [...]

Massachusetts Standardized Testing To Get Liberal Overhaul

November 20, 2008

Being a resident of the People’s Republic of Massachusetts, I get frustrated with government fairly often.  As bad as the mess is in Washington, DC, it is nothing compared to the mess on Beacon Hill or with the people of this state, who year after year hand their government over to the same people who [...]

The Creeping Middle Class According to Obama

October 28, 2008

Barack Obama keeps talking about how the Middle Class will get a tax cut according to his plan.  For months, he has been using the mantra that families making under $250,000 will get a tax cut.  Putting aside for a moment how Obama’s tax plan is actually a tax increase for most Americans, it is becoming [...]

Redistribution Defense: Blame Fox News

October 28, 2008

When the Obama audio from 2001 was released yesterday, in which he argued that there was a need for “redistributive change” in America, and that we needed to “break free” from the negative constraints of the Constitution, the McCain team seized on it and is now making it an issue.  It is a good issue [...]

Obama, Redistribution, and “Breaking Free” of the Constitution

October 27, 2008

A damning interview with Barack Obama from 2001 surfaced on YouTube last night, which expands on and gives us a further glimpse into Barack Obama’s real views on economic redistribution.  In it, Obama, calls the Warren Court, one of the most liberal courts in history and responsible for many of the decisions that trashed the [...]

State of the Race – Debating on the Right

October 6, 2008

According to the recent polls, Obama currently has anywhere from a 3-point to a 7-point lead in any of the polls that really matter.  Analysts attribute this primarily to the issue of the economy, but I think that it goes beyond that and to how the two candidates are presenting themselves to voters.  If you [...]

Is America Shifting Left?

September 27, 2008

Michael Barone makes the case in a recent article that this coming election may be an inflection point in American politics, much as the 1930s when there was a shift towards the idea that government could solve problems, and again in the 1980s when there was a shift to the idea that government is the problem.  [...]

McGovern in a Reagan Mask

September 22, 2008

We recently had a discussion about Barack Obama’s “tax cut” plan, the one that redistributes income to those who don’t pay taxes. Informed people aren’t buying it, but it was a smart move for someone trying to win an election in a conservative country. Today, Obama paid lip service to another prong of fiscal conservatism, [...]
