One of the most frightening forces at work in the world today is the tendency of Big Government toward perversion of science. The scientific method is pristine. Scientists are human, and fallible. The secular beatification of scientists and demeaning of science is a perversion. Better to beatify […]
Scott Walker got elected as governor of Wisconsin without a college degree. That has the usual purveyors of snide remarks, such as democratic provocateur, Howard Dean, questioning Walker’s presidential qualifications. Funny, once upon a time the unlikely achiever was celebrated as an American success story. In Howard […]
The argument used by liberals since the New Deal is that a bigger federal government is a necessary aid to the poor and average American. It is as if government and the private economy represent two, mutually opposed constituencies. The economy serves the rich and powerful, and […]
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: […]
I finally finished the epic book by Hillary. I should at least be up for a Nobel peace prize. Obviously the book did not do well. And at the end of the day, it looks like Hillary has not accomplished much in all these so called years of […]
On March 19th, President Obama remarked to a crowd that America should have mandatory voting. According to him, “The people who tend not to vote are young, they’re lower income, they’re skewed more heavily towards immigrant groups and minority groups . . . It would be transformative […]
Espresso makes you hyper. When you’re hyper you sometimes make rash decisions. When you make rash decisions you usually regret it. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz evidently chugged a Venti-five-shot-double-pump-skinny-vanilla-latte on Monday before announcing Starbucks’ new “RaceTogether” public relations stunt. As he describes it, the über-”progressive” head of […]
The Franklin Institute recently put on a seminar in Phoenix, Arizona, to educate bloggers about school choice. Traditional public schools continue to go downhill even as the amount spent on them increases. In Arizona, 45 percent of the state’s budget goes to education, and there are never any […]
Inspired by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s account of a Soviet labor camp revolt in Gulag Archipelago, Volume III, the story of FORTY DAYS AT KAMAS follows political prisoners and security officials at a corrective labor camp in Kamas, Utah, where inmates seize control during the summer of 2024.
“I won,” declared Barack Obama, adding what is now a cliché: “Elections have consequences.” But, due to endless RINO lying to voters, Boehner and his henchmen have proven that is only partly true. Lying has been central to this country’s decay. First and foremost, campaign lying and liars must be stopped. This is an absolute […]
Reactions to John Boehner’s re-election as Speaker included scant attention to its implications for representative democracy. There is now no way for a majority of voters to obtain representatives who will represent them; and no way to compel a purportedly representative government to comply with their clear wishes on matters they consider most crucial.
In the wake of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress, an e-mail arrived in my inbox declaring “A Quarter of Congressional Democrats Choose to Betray Israel.” Obviously this was intended to get me to click on the linked article, which it succeeded in doing. It was also clearly supposed to outrage me, which […]
President Obama’s ill-considered attempts to negotiate with Iran suggest that he still hopes to be remembered for “peace,” but he has engaged in scores of military actions around the world, with few successes other than killing bin Laden. It was considered premature to award him the Nobel Peace […]
Day Five introduces instinct and reason to the universe, and thus establishes the basis for what will become evil, or sin, and eventually the entire concept of crime.
On a reading of Day Five, that may seem like a rather peculiar conclusion to draw, but I would urge the reader to bear with me. It […]
There is a sharp and consequential asymmetry between left and right in American politics. It is my purpose here to describe the asymmetry and explain both its origins and consequences. But first an important clarification: the asymmetry does not refer to the stark differences in […]
Why do you imagine that Obama is allowing John Kerry to make a deal with Iran? I mean, why any deal AT ALL? In Iran right now, our sanctions are making life VERY uncomfortable for people. Many everyday items can’t be found and friends there have told me […]
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in 2007 over President Bush’s objections.
Almost half the Senate — nearly every Republican — warned the Iranian government in a letter on Monday that if Obama makes an agreement with Tehran, […]
House Speaker John Boehner is a traitor to the U.S. Constitution and the American people.
By agreeing to fund ObamaCare as well as President Obama’s Executive Amnesty for illegal immigrants—-and by shamefully attacking his Tea Party Republican colleagues who refuse to go along with such travesties-—Speaker Boehner has demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt […]
Over 288,000 has signed a petition at whitehouse.org labeling an open letter addressed to the Leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran, penned by Sen. Tom Cotton and signed by 46 Republican Senators, as treasonous against the United States. The letter begins by stating “It has come to our attention while observing your nuclear negotiations […]
Mike Shedlock had an intriguing column this last weekend about Detroit (and other major cities) installing streetcar systems, at seriously high costs, while technology marches forward, toward, he suggests, to driverless automobiles which may be the rapid transit of the future.
Whether or not such […]
At CPAC, recently, an estimated 10,000 conservatives and libertarians, together with many presidential aspirants, gathered across the Potomac. They did so amidst massive hoopla and intense media fascination. We in the media are nothing if not suckers for hoopla.
History, however, typically emerges without hoopla. Janet Yellen, […]
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 […]
I have a bit of a problem with the new CIS show and a couple of other TV shows. Mom, Scandal and 2 Broke Girls. I can safely say that I stopped watching these shows. And the problem is if we don’t stop watching these shows the liberals […]
