The Farm Bill is a bane of we Conservatives’ existence – and Reality-based policymaking. It is a relic of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR)’s horrendously failed New Deal – a top-down, central-planning nightmare mess.
And over the last eighty-plus years, FDR’s heinous domestic policy has gone global. […]
ObamaCare is an unmitigated, omni-directional disaster.
It’s a disaster as a health care plan. How’s it doing with premiums?
ObamaCare Premiums Will Increase Faster Than Private Plans
How about deductibles? Co-pays? Medical choices?
Consumers Face Higher Deductibles Under ObamaCare Plans
ObamaCare Shock: […]
We are (thank God) in the fourth quarter of the Barack Obama Administration. Our long national nightmare is more than three-quarters over.
That’s the good news. The bad news is – everyone in the Barack Obama Administration knows it too.
This waning Administration is in […]
Remember “Cap and Trade?” The anti-market allegedly “market-based” “solution” to man-faked global warming climate change?
A central authority (usually a governmental body) sets a limit or cap on the amount of a pollutant that may be emitted.
The limit or cap is allocated and/or sold […]
The Barack Obama Administration’s Thursday Internet uber-power grab is awful for just about every American. It will lead to dramatically more expensive Web access – because of both raised service costs and huge new taxes.
And we will see a spiraling, regressive devolution of speed. It […]
You’ve heard the phrase “patent trolls,” yes? Certainly not a positive sounding term. I mean – trolls? How positive an image does that conjure?
The Media are almost always opposed to all things good. So when they with near unanimity help promulgate a term – you […]
President Barack Obama has a repetitive tic when it comes to his myriad power grabs.
The President knows if he is straightforward about his plans to government-ize every sector of the economy – said plans will be even less popular than they already are. (Hello, November […]
For governments everywhere, taxes and regulations are like Lays Potato Chips – no one can eat just one.
In part, of course, because governments’ appetite for taking our money and controlling our lives is insatiable. It’s their nature.
And because government intervention just about always makes things […]
We wrote and recorded the following in December 2010 – the last time the Barack Obama Administration’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was on the verge of imposing really awful Network Neutrality policy.
Since, the D.C. Circuit Court has unanimously rejected said imposition – because the FCC lacks […]
Hershey’s – the Candy Man – is a BIG business. Its May 2014 market cap was $23.26 billion.
And Hershey’s is very generous with government. Through the second quarter of last year, it had spent $8,332,000 on lobbying and $845,534 on candidates and elected […]
We less government types believe in the Yellow Pages Rule: If you can find it in the Yellow Pages, the government shouldn’t be doing it.
But just before the 2008 election, soon-to-be-President Barack Obama proudly proclaimed “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States […]
November’s election was an overwhelming, historic rebuke of what President Barack Obama and his Democrats are doing – and how they’re doing it.
But if you think the newly-minted major Republican majorities should serve as a roadblock to the Democrat agenda – well, that’s yet another thing […]
The American people in November overwhelmingly, historically rebuked President Barack Obama, his policies and his unilateral practices.
The President his own self primed the pump for the election as a referendum – on him.
Obama: My ‘Policies Are On the Ballot. Every Single One of Them.’
Bipartisanship in Washington, D.C. has for the most part devolved into a pipe dream, a dirty word – or both.
A pipe dream because after decades of gerrymandering – partisanship is what you get. Gerrymandering is elected officials choosing voters rather than the other way round. Those […]
Perhaps the only thing government loves more than spending our money – is taking it.
The spending has long since passed absurdly astronomical levels. The Feds alone spend about $4 TRILLION a year. Governments in total are spending about 36% of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) – […]
Yet another ongoing government authoritarian problem is the rampant abuse of civil forfeiture. Which is where federal, state and local Leviathans seize personal property of all sorts. Often when someone is merely suspected of – not charged with – a crime. Often when the tie between the […]
The late, inordinately great Ronald Reagan provided expert analysis of the ridiculous Push-Pull damage wrought by government.
The government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops […]
As we’ve often discussed, the Tech World Media is just as hopelessly Leftist and lost as the broader Jurassic Press.
They so often get it so very wrong – often because their absurd political perspective warps their alleged “reporting.”
Saturday gave us […]
“Burn this b**** down.”
Some believe those words, shouted by Louis Head, stepfather to the late Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri, are what touched off three days of rioting, violence, and untold property damage across the U.S. and elsewhere.
Head was captured on video with Brown’s mother […]
One of the largest myths going is that government helps the Little Guy.
On its face this is patently absurd. More government – taxes and/or regulations – raises the costs of everything for everyone. The Big Guys are far better equipped to absorb the […]
Unless you only get your news via the Jurassic Press – or you are a government school victim who as a result doesn’t pay attention to anything at all – you are now intimately familiar with the on-camera stylings of Jonathan Gruber.
Gruber is a […]
President Barack Obama’s recent Asia trip was – like much of his presidency – very often disastrous.
Some things are more disastrous than others.
A Look at What the US-China Climate Deal Means for the Fight Against Global Warming
China, whose emissions […]
Election 2014 was a gi-normous repudiation of the Democrat tax-and-spend, go-it-alone-government-knows-best model.
For everyone except Democrats.
(President Barack) Obama Pledges Immigration Executive Order By End Of Year
After Rout, Dems Plan Few Changes
Soon-to-be-ex-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is certainly a part of the Oblivious Caucus.
President Barack Obama this morning released a statement calling for his Administration’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – allegedly an independent agency – to execute a unilateral, complete rewrite of existing law.
He wants reclassification of how the Internet is regulated – so as to […]
Thank you very much to all who serve and have served. #VeteransDay
Yesterday we had this:
