The city of Seattle is about to phase in a drastic increase in the minimum wage to $15/hr, thanks to the efforts of its new socialist city councilwoman, Kshama Sawant. Seattle’s far left mayor Ed Murray has now taken up the effort, and it is expected to [...]
SHAME ON YOU, ELEANOR CLIFT
In a commentary on his Web site, today, Bernard Goldberg unleashed all his vented fury at the Democratic has-been of has-beens, Eleanor Clift – known, even to her few remaining (still alive) PBS fans, as the mistress of liberal-left talking points [...]
With quiet dignity a hooded figure revealed himself from the protective ring of trees. Mounting a small hillock he faced the sea of expectant faces. A measured sweep of his hands pulled back the hood to reveal a wizened face framed by a long white beard. For [...]
The UK Independence Party (UKIP) is almost on the verge of toppling a two-party (sometimes three-party) monopoly in British politics which goes back to the 19thcentury.
UKIP – which was formed as long ago as 1993 – calls from a withdrawal from the European Union (EU) [...]
Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-WI) trafficked in the culture of allegations of the ”un-American.” He was censured by the United Senate and died disgraced.
Now Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is engaging in misconduct comparably shameful: “redbaiting” those with red state values. He deserves censure for such [...]
Allow me to (re)introduce you to the hardcore Leftists rabble rousing for a full-on government takeover of the World Wide Web.
Theirs is now an all-out push to have the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) “Reclassify” the Internet – so as to then impose the utterly unpopular [...]
Not surprisingly, the UK’s main “progressive” newspaper, The Guardian, has provided its readers with a thoroughly Marxist analysis of Boko Haram’s recent kidnapping of over 200 Nigerian schoolgirls. Yes, revolutionary socialism may be almost dead in the UK; but Marxist theory is still alive and kicking.
Our liberal progressive brethren inhabit a parallel universe where they see and hear things that do not exist and are unable to see and hear reality like the rest of us do. Their political thinking is trapped in an alternative reality where they believe their superior intellect [...]
The Democrat sales pitch goes something like this… People should not have the freedom to earn unlimited wealth while others are struggling just to survive. Government should take from those who earn too much and redistribute to people in need. This is the right and duty of [...]
As the 2014 mid-term congressional elections loom, Democrats are indeed feeling gloomy. Their fanciful notion of retaking the House of Representatives, so gleefully pondered in the aftermath of Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection, is hardly mentioned anymore. Worse yet, some dire predictions of this fall’s outcome even include [...]
How do you know you’re being had by a slick politician? Writing in Mein Kampf about how to manipulate people and win power, Adolf Hitler said that since the average person had a very limited memory and a “slowness of understanding,” it was necessary to use only [...]
Both of these folks have a Nobel prize of sorts but Gene Fama was awarded his for economic abilities and Obama was gifted his for peace. And people have been scratching their heads ever since. Gene Fama is a pretty interesting guy. And he spoke at a [...]
“There is no failure except in no longer trying,” once wrote American philosopher Elbert Hubbard. Though pithy it perhaps most accurately captures what was once the American ethos – an upstart nation populated by upstarts, millions united by a common cause to prove to the world [...]
“Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.”
~ Proverbs 6:6
“And indeed the use made of slaves and of tame animals is not very different; for both with their bodies minister to the needs of life.”
~ Aristotle, Politics (384-322 [...]
One of the most potent intoxicants in Africa today is the canned phrase “African solutions for African problems.” While ‘ASAP’ is an acronym that connotes a timely and efficient result, most if not all, operations that are veiled with the romantic motto, have proven that they are not indigenously conceived, funded, or driven. Since this [...]
One of my readers, we’ll call him Moses, is the publisher of a mainstream newspaper in California. He wrote me the other day with an insightful observation. Since Moses works in one of the most liberal industries, in one of the most liberal states in the union, [...]
Ted Cruz ended up with 35 votes, followed by Scott Walker with 19, Rand Paul with 17 and Ben Carson with 16. The next closest was “Other” with 9 votes. The poll was restricted to one vote per IP address.
When the “glorious past” attracts in the bleak present.
A madness, thought to be banished into the sealed coffin of bygone times, is reemerging. The returning Dracula threatens the destruction of the procedural order that preventively canalizes conflicts among advanced nations. Some [...]
In a recent broadcast by NBC News (May 15 2004), Rich Gardella &Talesha Reynolds reported that internal memos show that the Veteran’s administration (VA) has been playing “whack a mole” for at least six years in an effort to hide delays in health care for military veterans – a practice which may have resulted in [...]
It begins with my next “liberty amendment” to the Constitution…
Amendment XXVIII. Section 1. Congress shall make no law, nor allow any law to stand, which in any way allows for the withholding of employee wages, salary, payment, or compensation of any kind, for the purpose of tax collection.
The most insidious, insulting, and reprehensible [...]
OH, ANOINTED ONE, IF ONLY YOU HAD TAKEN THE TIME TO READ THE WISE COUNSEL OF THE OF THE FRAMERS OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, INSTEAD OF CONSTANTLY RUNNING OFF ON POLITICAL FUND-RAISING TRIPS – OR PRICEY TRIPS TO HAWAII TO PLAY GOLF WITH TIGER WOODS — THEN AMERICA WOULD LIKELY BE A MUCH BETTER [...]
The scandals are beginning to snowball around Arizona’s Attorney General Tom Horne, who is running for reelection this year. The latest revelation comes from a high-level staffer within the office, Sarah Beattie, who resigned last month because she believed Horne was running his campaign out of [...]
