Clearing the Browser Tabs – Why Does California Hurt Its People Thursday Edition

What is it with Democrats and their desire to wring every possible cent of tax money out of the people they govern? California has become the latest blue state which legislature has cast its rapacious glance upon Google’s considerable revenues and decided it needs to tax the bejeezus out of it. The state’s government just […]

When I started The Delivery almost two years ago, I confess I gave some thought to what I might do for Episode 100. I didn’t have big plans, but I wanted to make a splash, like Wendy and Mike did when they got Mark Steyn to take over the 50th episode of Brass Balls Radio. […]

Remember the misleading story the Washington Post published just before last November’s election about soldiers’ attitudes toward the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy? That story ended up getting covered better than did the study itself (which conclusions were not quite what the WaPo said they were) and contributed greatly to Congress’ lifting the policy. Well, […]

A Balanced Budget Amendment Doesn't Excite Me

As the debt ceiling talks enter the phase where at least one side has gone to full-on chest thumping, it seems like whatever the final agreement, it will involve a Balanced Budget Amendment vote. Emily Miller makes the case that we need a BBA in order to wrestle the Federal budget into submission and I […]

I’m going to put two stories above the links here because they’re both big and they are, in a way, related to each other. First, read Doug Ross article on the administration’s plan to send undercover rats “secret shoppers” into physicians’ offices to see which doctors will take Medicare patients and which will not. I […]

What a wonderful representative for the city of New Orleans former Mayor Ray Nagin turned out to be, huh? Not only did he botch the city’s response before, during, and after Hurrican Katrina about as badly as it could have been botched, but he’s also one heck of a conspiracy theorist. The former mayor of […]

Contrary to what the President believes, we can “simply cut our way to prosperity”. The alternative — spending our way to prosperity — has been a miserable failure that has cost us and our children over $3 billion and “saved or created” jobs as a stunning million dollars a pop. One of the big takeaways […]

A Little Night Music to Take You Back: "Inchworm"

How about a video? Here’s “Inchworm”, an old Sesame Street classic. Just because. My Mom used to sing this song to me when I was young and, sometimes, I’d sing the counterpoint melody — the part with the math. I still have days and nights, even as a grizzled adult, when I want my Mom […]

I get that a significant portion of the MSM is in the tank for President Obama. That doesn’t bother me quite as much as it does come conservatives. I can discount most of what’s reported by the major media as thinly-veiled propaganda or ignorance borne of comfort and laziness. I do get insulted, though, when […]

The story of Operation Fast and Furious is moving a lot faster now than it was a month or two ago. We have learned that weapons that “walked” from the operation turned up in the torture and murder of the brother of a Mexican state attorney general. Moe Lane rightly says that this is a […]
