Politicizing tragedy

At last count 7 people lost their lives last night as an Amtrak train derailed en route from Washington, D.C. to New York City. Before the bodies had even grown cold, their were utterly dishonest and predictable calls on the political left that it was the GOP's fault because they've cut funding from Amtrak over the […]

War on Christians

If there's a culture war going on in America today, Christians aren't the aggressors. Last week, the openly lesbian mayor of Houston applauded (then backpedaled and threw her lawyers under the bus) a series of subpoenas issued to five area pastors demanding the contents of their sermons and any communications they may have had with […]

Chutzpah

Well, Obamacare is  a complete fustercluck, which is what every conservative was saying four years ago. The mainstream media, however, has just discovered that not only has President Obama been telling a whopper of a lie for the past  four years, but that he knew it was a lie when he was telling it. As President […]

The lame defenses of the IRS

Over the past week or so, some of the more devoted (and blinkered) supporters of the IRS have tried to make the case that the agency's targeting of conservative and tea party groups was all a big mistake and anyway, it's the GOP's fault. The latest example of this is the Brookings Institution's  Henry J. […]

How government bureaucrats are like the media

This morning's "Morning Jolt" e-newsletter written by National Review's Jim Geraghty has some discussion of the Obama administration scandal du jour that the IRS targeted conservative groups with "Tea Party" and "Patriot" in their names for extra harrassment scrutiny when filing for tax-exempt status. We don't yet know who exactly knew what and when. There's no evidence […]

Your government at work

The Weekly Standard today brought us this bit of wisdom from First Lady Michelle Obama speaking to employees at the Department of the Interior. "I ... know that the work that you do isn’t easy, especially right now during these times.  I know that budget cuts mean that you all are juggling even more responsibilities […]

Liberal sympathy

On Friday, New York Mayor Nanny Michael Bloomberg introduced a measure that would limit the supply of powerful pain medicine in city-run hospitals in New York City. “The city hospitals we control, so … we’re going to do it and we’re urging all of the other hospitals to do it, voluntary guidelines. Somebody said, oh, […]

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 […]

I'll be on the Dave Congalton Show at 4 p.m. PDT to talk about the #KristenSmart case, whether the Flores's can get a fair trial in SLO County and the role of citizen journalism and the YourOwnBackyardPodcast. Listen Live at http://920kvec.com

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"
