Banning plastic straws

Research done by a 9-year-old has identified the newest environmental evil: plastic straws. Now woke cities across the nation are banning plastic straws. Over at Reason magazine, Christian Britschgi lays out the numbers, and the ultimate effect (none) that the bans will have on plastic straw pollution. At most, straws account for about 2,000 tons of […]

Don't bring a knife to a gunfight

I'm sure you've heard the axiom that you don't bring a knife to a gunfight. It really doesn't require much explanation, but for the dimwitted among us, it is basically a warning at attempting a fight with obviously inferior weapons to those of your opponent. In an editorial published last weekend (sorry for the delay, […]

Reality is inconvenient

It was predictable, really. It didn't take but a few moments after I published the rest of my weekend column that the SLO Tribune wouldn't publish for a feminist to decide that reality is inconvenient. Seeing my warning for young women to refrain from getting inebriated, and if they do, stay close to female friends, a […]

America's Dumbest Senator

California Sen. Barbara Boxer is retiring next year. It's likely that whoever replaces her will take up her mantle as America's Dumbest Senator, because that's how we in California do it when voting for Democrats. Today, in a Capitol Hill press conference where Democrats touted their plans for solutions to Islamic jihadi radicals shooting up […]

You didn't build that

Coming from the party of you didn't build that and you didn't earn that and tax cuts are giving money back to people (rather than taking less of something that was never the government's in the first place, comes this bit of genius. Another accomplishment -- Obama first President to have a Triple Crown winner […]

Any idiot can get elected to Congress

Today's idiot is Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Democrat of Texas, proof positive that intelligence, humility and a sense of shame are unnecessary (and possibly detrimental) to a career in the House of Representatives. Yes, that's Ms. Lee claiming that the Democrats never tried to impeach President Bush. Does she think memories in Washington, D.C. are […]

What a hack looks like

Eleanor Clift is a regular talking head on the "McLaughlin Group" and can be counted on to parrot the left-wing talking points of the day. However, not even I would've guessed that she'd be willing to say this. “I’d like to point out that Ambassador Stevens was not ‘murdered,’” Clift said, using air quotes, “but […]

The stupid, it burns

So, as part of my other job that must-not-be-named I found myself over at Mother Jones, reading this article by David Corn. There’s far less to the article than Corn would have you believe. Corn attempts to make a lot of hay out four non-committal sentences in an interview House Speaker John Boehner gave back […]

Willfully dishonest

Late last month The Washington Post decided to make a cause célèbre out of the case of a woman who was denied communion [PDF format] at her mother’s funeral. At the bottom of the front page was a sympathetic story of how heart-broken Johnson was. Oh, by the way, Johnson had talked to the priest […]

Make it stop

I’ve repeatedly decried the “logic” by which certain Democrat politicians hail unemployment payments as more stimulative than actual jobs. This actually makes that look sensible. Lean forward idiots! Why didn’t I think of that? Let’s just expand the senate by 3 million members and we can bring the unemployment rate below 5 percent. Genius!
