What Barack giveth, Abel taketh away

Abel Maldonado, a Republican from Santa Maria, provided the deciding vote to pass the largest tax increase in California history earlier today. Once again, the Sacramento Bee's tax calculator is here. You can see for yourself that the $13 a week that you'll start seeing in your paycheck come June from the modest federal tax […]

Here's what the Pope had to say about the meeting: Following the General Audience the Holy Father briefly greeted Mrs Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, together with her entourage.

California's additional taxes

The California Senate GOP has replaced their leader and continue to stand fast against the Democrats-Schwarzenegger plan to close the state's $42 billion budget gap. If you're wondering what these proposed new taxes would mean to you, the Sacramento Bee has put online a helpful calculator. There is one thing the calculator apparently doesn't take […]

Stem cell science

I've noted repeatedly that embryonic stem cells -- while popular with those on the left who give no moral weight to people at the earliest stages of human development -- just don't work. Today, there comes a report about just that. A family desperate to save a child from a lethal brain disease sought highly […]

Job opportunities for journalists

During the 2008 presidential campaign, journalist Linda Douglass made a splash by quitting her reporting job to go to work for Barack Obama. As the media business, so heavily dependent on advertising continues to crash (the stock price of the New York Times today dropped below the price of a Sunday paper), journalists are finding […]

And Feinstein's supposedly the smart one

Last week, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein confirmed news media reports that those Predator drones that are causing terrorists in the lawless Pakistan tribal regions to come down with bad cases of death are actually based in Pakistan. In a just world, this would get blabbermouth Feinstein kicked off the intelligence committee and possibly censured. Instead, […]

Out of touch

I'm watching President Obama speak before signing the "stimulus" bill. I'm shocked that he can say this stuff with a straight face. The bill has "no earmarks" and "none of the usual pork-barrel spending." He thinks you're stupid -- and many Americans are -- they voted for him. He continues -- he inherited a $1 […]

Chris Field is a joke

Chris Field is a climate "scientist" who, when his hypothesis is disproved, doubles down. "We now have data showing that from 2000 to 2007, greenhouse gas emissions increased far more rapidly than we expected, primarily because developing countries, like China and India, saw a huge surge in electric power generation, almost all of it based […]

Media and religion

Muzzammil Hassan, a Muslim who started Bridges TV to promote a better understanding of Muslims, was arrested last week on charges he beheaded his wife. If you haven't heard this reported on the news, then you're not alone. Granted, using Google News search results as a barometer isn't necessarily the most accurate tool for assessing […]

Line of the day

Comes from Jennifer Rubin at Commentary Magazine's Contentions blog: What is wrong with California? More importantly, why does Meg Whitman want to be governor? Maybe managing a successful business that sells junk is good preparation.
