Stockman — Our Great Deformation Continues

April 1, 2013

I wish this were an April Fools joke, but it’s not.  Former Reagan economic guru David Stockman is warning that the Fed’s money-pumping is creating an unsustainable stock bubble which will inevitably come crashing down in the next few years.  Worse, Stockman argues that the “Too Big to Fail” corporatist culture created over the last [...]

Occupy Wall Street Celebrates First Anniversary … with 181 Arrested

September 18, 2012

The useful idiots in the Occupy “movement” were back and in predictable form as the rubes descended on Wall Street once again to mark the first anniversary of their spectacle.  Surprisingly, only 181 were arrested by the NYPD as of last night on a variety of charges, including disorderly conduct.  A mob is still a [...]

Movie Review — The Dark Knight Rises

July 20, 2012

The most anticipated movie of the summer, The Dark Knight Rises, officially came out today and I had to see it.  This movie already had some political, as well as online, controversy surrounding it.  That was, of course, even before last night’s shooting. Here’s the trailer: Four summers ago, after viewing The Dark Knight, I [...]

Obamacare Exposes “Politics of Dependency”

July 3, 2012

Obamacare’s “politics of dependency” does more than just create an unsustainable economic reality, but it hurts the soul of the citizen as well.  Psychiatrist Keith Ablow writes about the psychological problems of government dependency on young people.  More than anything to date, Ablow argues that Obamacare turns “We the People” into “We the Parents” and [...]

Occupy Wall Street Needs Cash

March 11, 2012

Occupy Wall Street has around three weeks left before they potentially run out of bail, kitchen, and medical money.  So, a sporadically violent group of otherwise privileged unemployed useful-idiot agitators is running out of cash?  I’m shocked! Perhaps there are a lessons in all of this:  when people live beyond their means, times get tough [...]

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 [...]

“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 [...]

Oakland’s Mayor Appeases Occupiers

October 28, 2011

The Occupy movement conjures up many images:  grungy libs, animus against police (including car poo), mass arrests, ACORN‘s murky involvement, and people demanding the property of others be given to them. When a full-fledged Occupier riot broke out in Oakland the other night the police came out and cleaned up the streets, dispersing the mob.  [...]

Obama the Occupier?

October 25, 2011

Here’s a link I found on Drudge today which indicates that President Community Organizer was active in 1998 Chicago acting very similar to today’s “Occupy” rubes.  Though filled with anecdote and few witnesses, such associations and experiences as a young adult may be why the Obama Nation seems all enthused and nostalgic when he talks [...]

Occupy Wall Street “Revolution” a Bit Premature

October 23, 2011

Here’s a rather dutifully skewed MarketWatch piece from Paul B. Farrell which paints the “Occupation” movement with tricornered hats and democracy in their hearts (seizing property from one group to give to people to whom that property does not belong may be “true democracy”, but the kind that ushers in chaos and dictatorships). The catalyst [...]

“Occupy L.A.” Hinting at the Need for Violence

October 12, 2011

Here’s a video of a speaker from the Occupy L.A. protests: (go to about 30 seconds) It didn’t take long for the movement’s classic m.o. to manifest in pure leftist fashion!  The left loves government.  Government is a blunt instrument of power, and by extension, coercion.  Of course, violence on some level would be necessary [...]

Oh, Those Evil Corporations

This “Occupy Wall Street” pic has been going around the Internet the last few days.  Seemed to be echo chamber worthy:

One Useful Idiot’s Moment at the “Occupy Wall Street” Protests

October 5, 2011

The person featured prominently in this video, the self-identified “Lotion Man”, pretty much embodies what the “Occupy Wall Street” crew is all about: Hmm… lets see.  He’s annoying, attention-loving (as many three-year-olds are), somewhat incoherent, emotional not rational, and an agitator.  Sounds pretty much just like an average young New York City lib with a [...]

The “Occupy Wall Street” Contagion

October 3, 2011

I haven’t posted on the “Occupy Wall Street” movement yet simply because I thought it would be a mere flash in the pan, but since September 17th the rubes have stuck with it, even getting arrested trying to “occupy” the Brooklyn Bridge.  It was those 700 arrests that have seemed to galvanize this boiler-plate anti-capitalist [...]
