Mad Jack Murtha

Democratic Rep. Jack Murtha has solved one of those pesky problems facing President Barack Obama as he moves to close down the terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Murtha is offering a minimum security prison located in his district for the terrorists. Suspected terrorists at the military's detention center in Cuba are "no more […]

That would make him a one-term president

From the Los Angeles Times: Transfixed by the daily spectacle of dismal economic news and wild Wall Street swings, few Americans have looked up to see what a wide array of economists say lies beyond the immediate crisis. And with good reason: The picture isn't pretty. The sleek racing machine that was the U.S. economy […]

We welcome our new liberal overlords

Sen. Barack Obama was sworn in today as the 44th President of the United States. Politically, I'm sure that in the coming years that I'll oppose many of the policies Obama and the Democrat congress enact. This will likely begin tomorrow when Obama rolls back many of the abortion funding restrictions that exist under GOP […]

Please be this stupid

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told Fox News' Chris Wallace on Sunday that she's open to other Democrats' plans to conduct hearings -- and possibly prosecutions -- into the Bush administration on a variety of fronts. "I think you look at each item and see what is a violation of the law and do […]

Alternative Stimulus Plan

The Republican Study Committee released some bullet points on its alternative to the Democrat's stimulus plan. Some highlights: An increase in the child tax credit from $1,000 to $5,000. An increase in the deduction for college expenses from $4,000 to $6,000, and in the income threshold at which the deduction can be taken. An end […]

Partisan, not principled

I often use the construction in the headline to refer to The New York Times editorial page. Most notably, I refer to that page's double-standard when it came to the use of the filibuster against judicial nominees. When filibusters were threatened (not executed) against nominees of President Bill Clinton, the page decried the practice. When […]

"Media analysis" from the left

Courtesy of Guy Benson over at National Review's "Media Blog" comes this hilarious analysis of the performance of Air America vs. Fox News in 2008. When I read Benson's bit, I thought that he must've been making this up. He wasn't. In 2008, former Air America host, Al Franken was elected the next Senator from […]

Are we fighting to win?

The Washington Post published this article that paints a very disconcerting attitude displayed by the incoming Obama administration with regard to the war in Afghanistan. President-elect Barack Obama intends to sign off on Pentagon plans to send up to 30,000 more U.S. troops to Afghanistan, but the incoming administration does not anticipate that the Iraq-like […]

Lousy refs

Hoystory Sr. has season tickets to the San Diego State men's basketball team. I attend the games when I can. I attended last Saturday's victory over Utah, but it's things like this that make me wonder if you have to fail an IQ test to be a Mountain West Conference official. This didn't affect the […]

The New York Times' editorial decisions

While the newspaper industry is going through a downsizing the likes of which haven't been seen since the advent of television, The New York Times continues to do things that devalue its brand. The latest "what were they thinking?" move was their decision to hire U2 front man Bono to write Op-Ed columns. The first […]

Taped The Argument earlier today, fumbled through some closing remarks; this from @michaelbd is the more eloquent version of what I tried to say:

For some amount of time today, the CA DOJ's new data website leaked name and addresses of people with CCW permits.

Someone PM'd me with video evidence of it (can't share to protect confidential info).

Here is a reddit thread with discussion. https://www.reddit.com/r/CAguns/comments/vm723i/attorney_general_bonta_releases_new_firearms_data?sort=confidence
