Turning the Safety Net Into A Hammock

Turning the Safety Net Into A Hammock

Once of the reasons that conservatives distrust government incentives is because of the law of unintended consequences. What is desirable in moderation can often, in excess, lead to exactly the opposite result fromĀ  what we intend to do. So we think long and hard and, when we do act, we do so slowly and incrementally. […]

Ever seen a podcast being made right in front of your eyes? If you haven’t this should be a treat. If you have, it should still be a treat because you’ve never seen anything like “The Delivery — Live!”. I’ve tried to explain what the live video feed of my podcast is like and I […]

The President visited Hampton University over the weekend to give the commencement address and boy did he deliver a weird one. There is a lot in it I want to unpack and examine more closely, but I’ll pick some low-hanging fruit tonight. At one point, the President cautioned the graduates about a clear and present […]

There is a right way and a wrong way to look at birds. This is the wrong way. Apparently, this Godawful waste of celluloid has become a minor cult hit, for reasons I can not fathom. I know from good cult movies and this one doesn’t come close to qualifying. It has no redeeming feature, […]

If I ever have to run a “best of” show, Episode 37 will be at the very top of the list. I think it’s the best show in the short history of The Delivery. I had Stephen Green and Ed Driscoll in for the whole hour and, while I’d love to say I had a […]

*headslap* Excuse me, Mr. President? I’m going to say this as politely as I possibly can. Would you please GET YOUR ASS OFF THE RESOLUTE DESK? For the Love of Pete, man, didn’t anyone raise you better than that? Surely your Grandmother — you remember, the racist one you threw under the bus — taught […]

You may know that central Tennessee, and the city of Nashville in particular, has been devastated by what residents are calling a 500 year flood. The flood hasĀ killed over two dozen people, left thousands homeless, and caused over a billion dollars worth of property damage. It is, to use Joltin’ Joe Biden’s words, a big […]

Here is Episode 36, a brisk dose of immigration reality in which I do something novel and actually read the controversial Arizona immigration law. I brought Kim Haney back on the show because, well, she’s a heck of a lot of fun and I feel very comfortable letting the conversation roam. She’s smart and conversant […]

I see this morning that authorities have arrested the guy who tried to blow up a car bomb in Times Square over the weekend.Contrary to the suspicions of Chief Inspector Bloomberg, the suspect was not Glenn Beck. He is, as it happens, a naturalized American citizen by way of Pakistan (“Pock-ee-stahn” in Obama dialect) named […]

Hey, thanks Mayor Bloomberg. Thanks a big old stinking pantload. Bloomberg later told CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric that the suspect behind the bombing attempt could be a domestic terrorist angry at the government who acted alone. “If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally […]
