September 30, 2010

The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that due to ObamaCare, 30,000 McDonalds employees may end up losing their health care unless the fast food chain gets a government waiver.  As it turns out, McDonalds was only talking to government folks about the new regulations, not making any concrete decisions.

Whispers of Hillary 2012 Get Louder

July 15, 2010

The key moment in this saga happened in early June when loyal Clintonite James Carville openly bashed Obama’s handling of the oil spill in front of the MSM.  This was a sign to those loyal to the Hillary faction to buck up because it’s not over yet — there might be a chance in 2012.  [...]

Rush’s Op-ed in the Wall Street Journal

October 17, 2009

Personally, I think that Rush Limbaugh has a legal case against many of those involved in the unfounded defamation of his character which resulted in real financial consequences, many of whom are in the MSM.  But, Rush has decided to take another route — battling back in the arena of ideas like he’s preached for decades on [...]

Chris Christie Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory

October 11, 2009

The darkening days of Fall portend dark days politically for Chris Christie and Republicans across the the People’s State of New Jersey.  His 14-point lead over incumbent Democrat failure Jon Corzine has diminished to a margin-of-error polling situation.  Why?  As Peter Ferrara writes Christie has run a “content-free campaign” and echoes the Wall Street Journal‘s [...]

Is Bush Batman?

July 28, 2008

Apparently, a number of op-ed articles have hit the Internet regarding Christopher Nolan’s new film, the box-office shattering The Dark Knight, and how Batman allegorically plays the role of George W. Bush (some say Batman is Dick Cheney or a generic conservative hero)!  A friend tipped me off to this concept last night and I [...]

May 29, 2008

Here’s Newt making tons of sense once again: So, SIGN THIS PETITION from Newt’s American Solutions project to get your voice heard on having a sound, pro-growth energy policy for our nation during these hard times.  The Warner-Lieberman Bill is a horrible, anti-growth, anti-business bill that is gaining momentum in the Senate not because it is sound [...]
