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 […]
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 […]
