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 […]
We are deep into Year Seven of the Barack Obama Administration. It has not been a great time in the history of government transparency and accountability.
He at the outset sounded good.
“We have to use technology to open up our democracy. It’s no coincidence that one of […]
To quote the late, inordinately great Ronald Reagan, “Government is not the solution to our problem – government is the problem.”
To quote the White Stripes, “I said it once before but it bears repeating”:
“Trade Wars” actually aren’t about trade — they are about government trade […]
Remember this woman?
“Everybody in Cleveland low minority got ObamaPhone. Keep (Barack) Obama in President, you know? He gave us a phone, he’s going to do more.” (Sic)
“You sign up if you on food stamps, you on Social Security, you got no income, disability….” […]
Flying under the free trade flag, many in DC are pushing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and fast-track Trade Promotion Authority (TPA).
U.S. President Barack Obama Defends Trans-Pacific Partnership
Speaker John Boehner: More Trade = More American Jobs
(Senate Majority Leader Mitch) McConnell Urges Cooperation on […]
Last week’s deadly Amtrak crash was absolutely horrendous.
For Democrats and their fellow Big Government advocates – it was a serious crisis they are trying desperately to not let go to waste.
They first tried to say the cause of the crash was a lack of government […]
It is an empirical fact – a metaphysical certitude. Government overreaches.
And the Barack Obama Administration has the longest, most overactive arms ever. With many, many, MANY power-grabbing hands.
Obama’s Legacy of Overreach
Obama Amnesty ‘Unprecedented’ Threat to Constitution
Obama Is Breaking The Law By […]
The road to Hell is paved with good government intentions.
We need not ascribe malicious motives to Big Government advocates – we need only look at their results.
Total US Debt Rises Over $18 Trillion; Up 70% Under Barack Obama
Why Are We Not Talking About […]
Government is terrible at…well, pretty much everything. The examples are legion – and myriad.
In large part because government doing anything violates the Wallet Rule.
You go out on a Friday night with your wallet. You then go out the following Friday night with my wallet. […]
We just hobbled through another tax season. The excruciating excursion into the ridiculous thicket that is the roughly 75,000 page tax code.
All for the privilege of giving federal, state and local governments record amounts of our money.
A 2011 study said we then wasted […]
Net Neutralityremains an omni-directional terrible idea.
Here in the United States, Net Neutrality exponentially increases the government’s ability to tax the Internet. Starting with the 17.4% Universal Service Fund (USF) tax. Which goes up automatically every calendar quarter. And goes up each and every time three unelected Federal […]
We’ve heard it for generations. Let government get more involved – and private sector prices will fall. We’ve heard it in defense of new programs – and (ever) more regulations.
We have centuries of evidence to the contrary.
Government promises already made are unfathomably short […]
Private property rights are a fundamental component of any successful economy. If you want a nation to prosper – property must be safe in its owners’ hands.
Intellectual Property (IP) shouldn’t be treated any differently than physical property. In fact, in most instances – in many […]
Former Democratic governor of Oregon John Kitzhaber, who was forced to resign in an ethics scandal.
It was the best of coverage – it was the worst of coverage.
You’ve heard of Virginia ex-Governor Bob McDonnell, yes? And his wife?
Ex-Virginia Gov. McDonnell […]
The solution to many, MANY public policy problems is – less government.
Governments’ regulatory hammers and checkbooks are simply gi-normous. The federal government alone spent last year nearly $4 trillion – and its regulations cost the economy more than $2 trillion more.
That’s $6 trillion a […]
