Government Motors

Last year, satirist extraordinaire Iowahawk wrote up some fake 1970's-era ad copy for Congressional Motors. All new for 2012, the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition is the mandatory American car so advanced it took $100 billion and an entire Congress to design it. We started with same reliable 7-way hybrid ethanol-biodeisel-electric-clean coal-wind-solar-pedal power plant behind […]

Predictable

I haven't looked at what people are blaming today's market downturn (DJI -254.16 points) on, but I could've told you Friday this would happen. Why? This is why: Guest lineup for the Sunday TV news shows: ABC's "This Week" — Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. NBC's "Meet the Press" — Geithner We're lucky that the market […]

Not exactly an Apollo 13-level attitude

The space shuttle Atlantis almost blew up in 1988 due to an identical problem -- damaged heat shield tiles -- that ultimately brought down the shuttle Columbia 15 years later. The exhaustive attention NASA now devotes to making sure shuttle heat shields are damage-free and safe for re-entry is a direct result of the 2003 […]

You don't say?

I'm flipping channels and come across the ScienceHD channel showing "Snowball Earth." The summary reads: Scientists postulate that the Earth was once sheathed in ice and complex animals evolved when the planet thawed, due to the release of carbon dioxide. Wow, carbon dioxide is good for little cuddly bunny rabbits and other living things? Who […]

Double standards

Last Thursday, the Chicago Tribune published a story looking at White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel's stint on the board of directors of Freddie Mac. To say the story paints a troubling picture of cronyism and corruption is an understatement. In a year-plus tour, Emanuel attended a total of six meetings and made more […]

Prove it

Sen. Harry Reid has a history of putting his foot in his overlarge mouth on a regular basis when it comes to judges -- it's a minor miracle he still has any teeth left. Today, Reid stepped in it again. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Friday that John Roberts misled the Senate during his […]

Busybody bureaucrats

Henry Ford famously declared that you could get a car in any color you wanted as long as it was black. Well, that may not be the case any more. If you think black is a hot color for a car, you're not alone. The California Air Resources Board thinks the same thing. And that's […]

Bay Area evil

Last weekend, four police officers were killed were killed by a Lovelle Mixon, a [impressive list of derogatory expletives deleted]. The day before the shooting, Mixon had been tied through DNA to the rape of a 12-year-old girl. On Wednesday, some of the "good people" of Oakland held a march to honor Mixon. The event, […]

Obama's not much of a wrestler

President Barack Obama's game of choice is basketball. He's not much of a wrestler -- especially when it comes to "wrestling" with ethics questions, as Yuval Levin noted: In tonight's press conference, Jon Ward of the Washington Times asked the president whether he personally wrestled with the ethics of federally funding embryonic stem cell research.

What to cover

There's plenty of reasons why newspapers are struggling nowadays. Just yesterday the Houston Chronicle and Atlanta Journal-Constitution announced layoffs. There will likely be more next week at some newspaper somewhere. There's three major reasons behind this decline: the overall economic environment, bad management and the Internet. While part-time, hobbyist bloggers can never replicate even a small […]

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"
