Politifraud does it again

The hits just keep on coming. First, somebody at Politifact just learned a new word after reading Mark Twain’s autobiography. In his 1906 autobiography Mark Twain wrote "figures often beguile me" in describing their persuasive ability to mislead. John Robitaille, a 2010 Republican candidate for governor in Rhode Island, cited a beguiling statistic when he […]

The decline of men’s sports

At the collegiate level, men’s sports have been on the decline for decades ever since federal courts outlined the only safe harbor for compliance with Title IX was having the equal numbers of men and women athletes. Ignore the fact that men are more sports-oriented generally than women. The number of men’s gymnastic and wrestling […]

You’re gonna need a bigger credit card

This video of New York Times columnist Paul Krugman getting his hat handed to him over his position that the government (ours and all the others) can spend its way to prosperity. That’s gotta hurt The key critique starts at about 35:00 in. They get going at it again at 1:06. What I wanted to […]

On the politics

Very briefly, there are some in the blogosphere very desperate to find a silver lining in the nonsensical contortions of Chief Justice John Roberts. The theory goes that Roberts somehow knew that upholding this joke of a tax/not-a-tax law would re-energize the Tea Party, short-circuit an effort by President Obama and his allies on the […]

More thoughts on Obamacare

I encourage you to visit the various legal blogs to get well-reasoned analysis of this morning's travesty against the Constitution and the English language. As a layman and someone who respects language and words, a few thoughts: I wouldn't have been so disappointed with today's ruling if Justice Kennedy had wielded the dagger. So, instead […]

John Roberts, squish

Only “conservatives” seem to turn when they get on the court. Roberts votes to uphold the individual mandate because it’s a tax. Others disagree. “I don't care what the dictionary says ... it's not a tax increase.” Can you say: “Obamacare tax increase.” I know this decision will energize the right for the coming election. […]

Why do Muslims have more rights?

For the same reason that they get much more consideration for their “feelings"—they’ll physically attack you if you don’t submit. Two years ago Dearborn, Mich., paid a group of Christians $100,000 for violating their free speech rights. They better get out the checkbook again. Christians attacked at Festival I generally don’t think that what this […]

About Arizona

I wanted to get around to writing a little about Monday’s before all hell breaks loose tomorrow morning with the Obamacare decision. As those of you who watch the news regularly know, the Supreme Court ruled that while Arizona law enforcement officials could inquire as to the immigration status of people they have stopped for […]

4 lawless justices

Today the Supreme Court released a very brief per curiam opinion that got lost in all the brouhaha surrounding the Arizona Immigration case, which I’ll have some things to day about later. The case is American Tradition Partnership v. Bullock. The case involved some lawless Montana Supreme Court judges who determined that the Citizens United […]

Go sell crazy someplace else

Words fail me. It's not about thousands of guns allowed to go to Mexican drug cartels. It's not about hundreds of dead Mexicans. It's not about Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. It's not about ICE Agent Jaime Zapata. Nope, Republicans want Attorney General Eric Holder to turn over documents related to a gunrunning operation because […]

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.
