The shrinking middle class

I'm not referring to the commonly held notion that the number of people in the so-called middle class is shrinking. Instead, I'm referring to the fact that the definition of people who will be getting a middle class tax cut from an Obama administration is shrinking. Originally Sen. Barack Obama assured the American people that […]

Posting slowdown

Posting has slowed recently for three reasons. First, there's way too much meaningless horserace reporting going on right now. I don't do horserace posts, so there's not much posting. Second, Fable 2. Third, I'm working on a very long post (aka article) that's already taken me 2+ hours and I figure I'm 1/3 of the […]

Obama's fraudulent fundraising

The Washington Post returned to the issue of Sen. Barack Obama's campaign's refusal to turn on the basic Address Verification System on Wednesday, but it lets the Obama campaign get away with a whopper. When asked whether the campaign takes steps to verify whether a donor's name matches the name on the credit card used […]

I'm willing to PR for Nike

Two weeks ago Arien O'Connell ran the race of her life. The 24-year-old schoolteacher from New York City ran the San Francisco Nike Women's Marathon in under three hours. She beat her own personal record by more than 12 minutes. Officially, O'Connell finished 26th. Twenty-five "elite" runners runners were given a 20 minute head start […]

Reality-based editors

New York Times editor Bill Keller, apparently oblivious to the problems facing the newspaper industry, thinks the Times is doing just great. My confidence in The Times rests on the obvious, overwhelming, growing demand for what we do. Good. Because that demand sure isn't reflected in your stock price. And it's not reflected in the […]

Physician heal thyself

New York Times editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal spoke to journalism students last week and let's just say that he was consistent in his dishonesty. Let's start with Rosenthal's description of the dust-up earlier this year where the Times refused to run an op-ed by John McCain after affording the same opportunity to Barack Obama. […]

I'm gonna call it karma

In my early journalism days as a reporter I interviewed Sen. Ted Stevens about a proposal to that he was pushing that would open a spaceport in Alaska. He wasn't happy about the resulting article -- or me. Today, Stevens was found guilty on seven corruption counts. Now, there's probably no connection between the two […]

Missing the point

The Washington Post has a report on the cover of today's paper that offers an incomplete and cursory analysis of Sen. Barack Obama's online fund-raising. Concerns about anonymous donations seeping into the campaign began to surface last month, mainly on conservative blogs. Some bloggers described their own attempts to display the flaws in Obama's fundraising […]

Journalistic modus operandi

Michael S. Malone -- a longtime journalist -- has a piece up over at Pajamas Media decrying the one-sided media coverage of this presidential campaign. I encourage you to read the entire the entire thing, but I want to highlight a couple bits. But nothing, nothing I’ve seen has matched the media bias on display […]

Are they this insane?

Last week some House Democrats held a hearing on a plan that would do away with 401(k) plans and replace them with what I'll call Social Security v2. A plan by Teresa Ghilarducci, professor of economic-policy analysis at the New School for Social Research in New York, contains elements that are being considered. She testified […]

1 2 3 5

Yesterday, I visited a senior living complex.

I met a little old lady sitting in a wheelchair with a tube in her nose.

When she saw me, she lit up, moved her tube, and said,
“Kick Rand Paul’s ass!”

The room erupted.

I put my hand on her shoulder and calmly said, “Yes Ma’am.”

Rust Assistant Director Backs Up Baldwin's Account https://bearingarms.com/tomknighton/2021/12/03/rust-baldwin-n52882

But unlikely. Since no reports of injuries to Baldwin's hand.
