Congratulations to Michael Steele

The Republican Party yesterday elected it's first black chairman, former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele. This prompted CNN's Wolf Blitzer to declare: "Take a look at the audience, though -- and I want to show our viewers a picture of the audience. Michael Steele, the first African-American leader of the RNC -- Leslie [Sanches, GOP […]

Do as I say, not as I do

During the campaign, conservatives bashed then-candidate Barack Obama for this remark: "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said. "That's not leadership. That's not going to […]

Culture wars

A couple of notes on the ongoing culture wars: NBC is rejecting CatholicVote's pro-life ad for Sunday's Super Bowl broadcast that I highlighted earlier this week. NBC and the NFL say they don't take issue or advocacy ads. As LifeNews.com points out, that wasn't the explanation given earlier this week when PETA's racy ad was […]

An inconvenient study

An article in Middle East Quarterly purports to show the amount of foreign aid given to the Palestinians tracks with the number of homicides committed there. In the midst of the effort in Paris to bestow unprecedented sums of foreign aid on the Palestinians, there was little discussion of the unintended consequences — often deadly […]

Hamas considered a terrorist group "by some"

Former President Jimmy Carter appeared on the "Today Show" yesterday and demonstrated that he is amoral at best when it comes Arab terrorist groups whose sole aim is to kill all the Jews. Of course, if the press had any sense, they'd stop interviewing the doddering old anti-Semite.

Caterpillar's killer

The economy continues to tank with Caterpillar announcing more layoffs today. In response to deteriorating business conditions, Caterpillar Inc., the world's largest maker of mining and construction equipment, disclosed nearly 20,000 job cuts, most of which already have been made. They include 5,000 new layoffs of white collar workers, which will occur globally by the […]

Stimuluspalooza

I've noted before that the Republican Study Committee has a lot of good ideas on providing the economy a needed kick-start. Some conservative commentators have also suggested cutting the payroll tax -- something that would be felt by rich and poor alike and would also help businesses to keep employing workers. Unfortunately, it doesn't look […]

Sometimes it's about the individual

The Washington Post's Anne E. Kornblut has a hysterical article about women unable to break through the proverbial glass ceiling. I know, you think this is an old article about either: a) Hillary Rodham Clinton's failure to win the Democratic Party's nomination for president, or b) John McCain failing to win the presidency with Gov.

Obama overturns Mexico City Policy

Obama waited until his third full day in office to open the funding spigot to abortion providers overseas. I had predicted he would do it on his first full day in office. I was wrong. But Obama's accompanying statement regarding his executive order was laughable and somewhat offensive. Obama said in a statement that family […]

They don't want states, SCOTUS (at least not one that protects individual rights) or Senate. They want direct national control--& they want corporations to help implement policies & shut down expression that threatens them. I just wish they knew the definition of "fascist"
