President Barack Obama has dramatically ramped up the Washington, D.C., giant Crony-fest. Where economic sectors and companies Obama and his Democrats like get the gold mine – and the rest of us get the shaft. For instance, there was $80 billion for “green energy” in the awful 2009 […]
The political definition of Cronyism is: government policy that favors one or more specific beneficiaries – at the expense of everyone else. To wit: $80 billion of the 2009 “Stimulus” was wasted on “green energy” companies – 80% of whom were Barack Obama donors. Amongst the parade […]
The media are, of course, almost uniformly Leftist – which means they just about always toe the Party line. Including the belief that in order to help the poor – government must perpetually grow. Of course we conservatives also want to help the poor – we just […]
The Left loathes business and businesses. But business and businesses are mere symptoms of the disease they REALLY loathe – capitalism. For which they bizarrely think the “cure” – is uber-failed Socialism/Communism.
The Left is absolutely monolithic. No dissent is allowed – everyone must conform. And its […]
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So too a patent “troll.”
Behold Mark Cuban – a wildly successful entrepreneur. He in 1995 co-founded Broadcast.com – and in 1999 Yahoo! way overpaid $5.7 billion for it. Ever since, Cuban has in Donald Trump-like fashion built himself […]
Washington, D.C. is a dysfunctional mess. Just about nothing gets done unless it absolutely has to get done. And when things do get done – they are just about always horrible. Bigger and bigger government, over and over again, as far as the eye can see.
For instance, […]
The Donald Trump presidential phenomenon rolls on. Higher and higher his primary polls climb. He’s caught the irretrievably corrupt Hillary Clinton in a prospective general election matchup.
The DC Establishment – made up of both Democrats and Republicans – for decades ignored our immigration laws. And dismissed and […]
The entirety of the United States is now a federal disaster area – rendered thus by Washington, D.C. Unlike areas hit by hurricanes, tornadoes and other acts of God – our cataclysm is entirely man-made. Decades of anti-Reality policies have left our nation an uber-addled mess.
There are few things more dangerous to private enterprise than government bureaucrats with time on their hands. And since most bureaucrats have no legitimate reason for being – they have lots and lots of time on their hands.
In 2009, the federal government had at least 2,748,978 […]
The Founding Fathers knew what Lord John Dalberg-Acton knew. And far too few of us know the totality of Lord Acton’s sage sentiment: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”
“Great men are almost always bad men.” America […]
Clint Eastwood’s iconic Dirty Harry Callahan uttered one of the greatest movie lines of all time: “A man’s got to know his limitations.” It would appear no one in Washington, D.C. has ever heard of Harry or his weighty wisdom.
No one in our nation’s capitol seems […]
The following is in response to Mytheos Holt’s Townhall “The Three Dumbest ‘Conservative’ Objections to Patent Reform.”
The Left, along with huge Leftist companies, are pushing to fundamentally transform – radically undermine – the Constitutionally-protected intellectual property known as patents. As the Left is wont to […]
One of the advantages Big Government advocates have in their efforts to end the private sector – is the size of the victim. A $17-trillion-a-year economy is so huge – it almost always takes a lot of time to dismantle.
It’s like taking down those giant […]
It is – sadly, always – a clash of two titans. The private sector and government. There are claims made that it is – or can be – a symbiotic relationship. The free market and government – walking hand-in-hand into a brighter tomorrow.
But it is never […]
Remember that recurring Saturday Night Live skit where the late Chris Farley was the ultimate fanboy – interviewing those for whom he was the ultimate fanboy?
Sniveling and sweaty, he would bring up some of his favorite memories of his interviewees – pretending they were questions by […]
Thank goodness we last November gave the Republicans the Senate majority.
Who besides the GOP would resurrect government money for ridiculous “green” “energy” – which is neither green nor energy? To the tune of tens (if not hundreds) of billions of dollars more down the juice-less […]
Just about all of us have been there. Dating someone – and it isn’t working. You don’t get along. The person doesn’t give you what you want. You aren’t happy.
You each try to change the person, hoping a tweak here or there will suddenly, magically make […]
Democrat Congresswoman Anna Eshoo just penned an editorial for the San Francisco Chronicle. That has the patchouli whiff of her writing while sitting at the corner of Haight and Ashbury – in August 1968. It is warmed-over Hippie-Dippie, Flower Power, Socialist nonsense.
But Congresswoman Eshoo writes […]
We are a nation founded upon and (allegedly) governed by words. Beginning with – specifically, foundational-ly – the Constitution. Every syllable was by our Founding Fathers debated and carefully crafted. To ensure a limited, enumerated government, maximum freedom for We the People – and a document that […]
A computer programming maxim is “Garbage in – garbage out.”
(C)omputers, since they operate by logical processes, will unquestioningly process unintended, even nonsensical, input data (“garbage in”) and produce undesired, often nonsensical, output (“garbage out”).
No one or nothing produces more garbage than government. And their trash […]
Look, we get why Democrats want to use the giant-ness of the federal government to punish their enemies and reward their friends. Crony Socialism is in their ideological DNA. And they grow government as huge as possible – to then have the largest possible weapon to wield.
The Barack Obama Administration is – even more than any of its predecessors – the Crony Socialism Administration.
No prior presidency has used and abused government to do more for its friends – and more to its friends’ competitors – than has this one.
When Private […]
How many times has government royally messed up something? And not fired anyone? Or done anything that remotely resembles improving their performance?
Oh so very often. In part because they don’t care – once they have the power, they don’t care what happens to us. In part because […]
Former President Richard Nixon is an ancestral RINO – Republican In Name Only. The wobbly GOP wing that insists on delivering us Diet Democrat policies.
So it was in 1970 when President Nixon signed an executive order creating the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Get that? A unilateral […]
Government is just another organism. Just like any other other organism, its first priority is self-preservation. Its second – is to grow. The most it possibly can. It wants to be bigger, do more – control more.
There are more than four million humans who work in […]
