Clearing the Browser Tabs – The Conservative Commune Launches Monday Edition

Clearing the Browser Tabs – The Conservative Commune Launches Monday Edition

| June 20, 2011 | 1 Reply

My friends Joy McCann (of Little Miss Attila) and Dan Collins (of Piece of Work in Progress) have teamed up to create a brand new website for conservatives-minded folks called The Conservative Commune. It is a site that will not only have all the trappings of a blog — news and commentary, video content, and […]

Warning: Shack Strangeness All Weekend

Sunday Update: Most of what I had expected to do is done now, thanks to Andrew Riley and Duane Lester. Duane and I were talking and I mentioned my woes. He whistled up Andrew, who just did some great work at his site, and, literally within five minutes of that conversation, Andrew was on my […]

Smitty dropped me a note to ask if I had a picture of The Sundries Shack as glorious as that of the grocery store next to Jules Crittenden’s Right Wing Warmonger’s Bookshop. As it happens, yes I do and it’s an awfully nice place, as befits The World’s Finest Country Store-Themed Blog. I came across […]

These Days, Progressives Aren’t Shy

When conservative talk about about how the progressive movement was built on the foundation of the same programs that fascinated the fascists in the 1930s and 1940s, we’re generally shouted down as liars. Well, we are inaccurate in one respect. Fascist mainstays like eugenics, forced sterilization, population controls, and state control over the most minuscule […]

Yet Another Reason to Hate Cap-and-Trade

Yet Another Reason to Hate Cap-and-Trade

My post today at the American Issues Project deals with a rumor I’ve seen making the e-mail and blogging rounds. It says that if you own a home and want to sell it, the Democrats’ cap-and-trade bill would require you to have your house inspected to make sure it meets a certain energy-efficiency target and, […]

Leftist Christmas in July: Sarah Palin Resigns

Leftist Christmas in July: Sarah Palin Resigns

| July 3, 2009 | 35 Replies

Sarah Palin just announced that she is resigning as Governor of Alaska, effective the end of the month. Twitter is afire with commentary, mostly from folks watching her announcement. Still, it’s a pretty big shock. I’m not going to speculate about why she’s stepping down. I have no earthly idea. I have to think, though, […]

I should be a bit jealous about this, but I’m not. Stacy works his tail off and he’s worth every penny he gets in donations. Then again, so am I. So if you’re not inclined to donate to him (and you should hit him first, so he can put on that shindig this weekend), slipping […]

Again, the President Has Chosen Poorly

Our non-meddling President, after two weeks of assiduously not meddling in the “vigorous debate” in Iran (wherein one side is allowed to use guns and clubs as debating tools), has decided to meddle in the internal affairs of Honduras. And, true to form, he picked the wrong side. Reaction to the apparent coup was swift. […]

Is it too much to ask that the President’s Energy Czar, whatever the hell that is, actually read the entire bill she is lobbying so hard to get through Congress? Well, if you ask her, and Steve Doocy did, it’s horribly unfair to even ask the question. Doocy asked her five times and she managed […]

It’s Like the Stimulus Bill, Only with 50 Percent More Arrogance!

How bad was the Democratic cap-and-trade bill passed by the House on Friday evening? It’s hard to say for sure, since it wasn’t actually finished when the Dems, assisted by eight gullible Republicans, voted for it. Through a series of parliamentary inquiries, the Republicans learned that the 300-plus page managers’ amendment, added to the bill […]
