Truisms: The Case against Liberalism

I hesitate to write this post because it’s going to require that for the sake of argument I accept the premise that liberalism is a well-intentioned, idealistic ideology intent on “making the world a better place.”  Really I would just as soon slam my hand in the car door than accept such a falsehood, but for the future of the nation I will make the sacrifice.  Now to further set the stage, let’s have a word about truisms.  I’m a big fan of true crime shows.  I’m fascinated by the ways crimes are solved and how our justice system works … Continue reading

Wasteful Government Spending – Coburn’s Latest Report

As you have probably heard, Senator Tom Coburn (OK) released his latest ‘Wastebook’ on Tuesday just before the Senate vote on the latest budget deal proposed by Paul Ryan & Patty Murray. Coburn said it doesn’t go far enough to address the long-term debt and doesn’t achieve any savings by eliminating any of the wasteful spending highlighted in his report. Here are some of the highlights of waste in 2013 that add up to around $30 billion. Beachfront Property for Millionaires — $500 million: A U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) home loan program, created to help people with low and moderate incomes afford a home … Continue reading

NOW You Know WHY He Was Hired.

Back when the Obama Regime decided to “help” General Motors, the-then-CEO Richard Wagoner was summarily tossed out on his ass. The Regime wanted THEIR guy in there. For THIS, among other reasons. From Breitbart.com   CEO Dan Akerson: General Motors Should Not Repay $10 Billion Bailout Loss.      ” You DID vote for Obama, right, Dan” ??     No question about it. Besides, this bailout was NEVER about “saving” General Motors. It was all about “saving THIS…………….   …..the UAW / VEBA agreement. The loan amounts were EXACTLY what the deficit to the funding for retirees’ pensions and … Continue reading

Those WONDERFUL Unemployment Numbers.

Obamacare Website Unable to Make Payments

From IJ Review: The Rocket Scientists Who Designed the ObamaCare Website Forgot The Whole Payment Part As unbelievable as it sounds, word now comes that the beleaguered Obamacare website doesn’t have a payment mechanism. And Fox’s Megyn Kelly, for one, isn’t happy about it. In fact, she’s downright ticked off. Kelly was flabbergasted to learn that because no one is able to actually pay for healthcare coverage on the site yet, the plan is for insurance companies to simply “estimate” the cost of each plan – and for the government to “true up” the difference later. Not good, said an … Continue reading

Another From The “Union Success Stories” File.

Obama Spends $600 Million On Rail Projects That Benefit Private Companies

BY CURTIS TATE – McClatchy Washington Bureau WASHINGTON — The railroad industry brags in its national publicity campaign that it spends billions of dollars improving its infrastructure “so taxpayers don’t have to.” But the ads don’t tell everything. The nation’s freight rail network has been the quiet recipient of more than $600 million in federal investment during the Obama administration. According to Federal Railroad Administration numbers, at least half that amount has gone to projects that benefit the nation’s four largest railroads, the same companies at the heart of the industry’s ubiquitous “Freight Rail Works” campaign. That doesn’t even include tens of … Continue reading

Another One From “Union Success Stories” File.

In what Salon.com, click link if you want to read it, called “10,000’s of thousands” of protesters on Black Friday, we get the TRUTH. I went by 4 Wal-Marts on Friday, ZERO protests, or protesters, for that matter. From Breitbart.com   Report: 20 Employees Protested Walmart on Black Friday.     Looks like THIS wasn’t the ONLY “turkey” over Thanksgiving.     I’d say the UFCW action was about as big a turkey.             by             William Bigelow    1 Dec 2013, 4:46 AM PDT The push for a nationwide thunderous protest by Walmart employees against their employer on Black Friday turned out to be … Continue reading

An Obama Promise He Actually KEPT.

Mychal Massie Blasts the Obamas

From LetVent.com: The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespected) their Christmas family picture.” The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed … Continue reading

It Would Be Nice To See THIS Happen.

The wind power industry has been the beneficiary of MASSIVE amounts of taxpayer subsidies that have next to ZERO benefit to the nation. Time to put it on the scrap heap of history.

A Survey of the Damage

From Dennis Prager via the National Review: The President Who Has Done the Most Damage The only question is whether it can ever be undone. I have been broadcasting for 31 years and writing for longer than that. I do not recall ever saying on radio or in print that a president is doing lasting damage to our country. I did not like the presidencies of Jimmy Carter (the last Democrat I voted for) or Bill Clinton. Nor did I care for the “compassionate conservatism” of George W. Bush. In modern political parlance “compassionate” is a euphemism for ever-expanding government. … Continue reading

Can We Finally Stop Pretending?

From American Thinker by Jeffrey T. Brown: Every day, it seems, more people who have been screaming their hatred for those who predicted all we see coming true are admitting what we have known all along. The president is incapable of telling a truth, and what conservatives have been predicting for three years about ObamaCare has been entirely correct. Indeed, we haven’t seen anything close to the worst of what is to come, since the system hasn’t even begun to function in its utmost state of disarray and confusion. We’ve seen a website and estimates of premium and deductible figures … Continue reading

Harry, Harry, Harry

There is an article on the website for knpr Radio in Nevada by Ian Mylchreest entitled, “Sen. Harry Reid On Shutdown, Demise Of ‘Mainstream Republicans’. “ Included is a radio interview with Harry Reid.  Please listen to Harry Reid on knpr Radio, AIR DATE: October 24, 2013.    In my opinion, this pot calls the kettle black on more than one occasion.  He utters falsehoods.  Oh, and he claims “rich people” are willing to pay more taxes!  (Ask yourself, what is Reid’s definition of “rich?”)   In addition to that, he insults quite a few of us in the country relative to internet capability. I … Continue reading
