So, you may ask yourself, what happened to the show post for Episode 155, which should have been out a week ago? Well, you see, I had written the post and had it sitting as a draft and then, for reasons I now attribute to either ancient aliens or a sudden influx of Higgs bosons […]

Last Friday, President Obama gave a speech in Roanoake, VA in which he excoriated business owners and the “successful” for their rampant greed and confronted them with the truth about how they built their businesses. The short answer? They didn’t build a darned thing. We built it for them. And by “we”, Barack Obama means […]

If you turn on the news today, you’ll probably hear some version of a story about Mitt Romney and whether he really did fire a bajillion people while he was at Bain Capital. See, the Obama campaign really wants you to believe that Romney is some horrible real-life hybrid of the Monopoly Man, and Snidely […]

Congress Costs How Much Again??

This morning, the head of the Democratic National Committee and member of Congress Debbie Wasserman-Schultz tweeted this picture. I know what she’s trying to get across. The Republicans, who preach fiscal sanity, continue to waste our money on a partisan political crusade against Obamacare and they ought to give it up because it’s here to […]

Conservatism: The Ideology of Choice

| June 26, 2012 | 2 Replies

There seems to be this idea floating around that conservatives are not pro-choice. The truth is, we are pro-choice in nearly every aspect in the lives of Americans. We believe that you should have the right to choose the path your life should take, and assume the responsibilities for these choices. It is not up […]

Brian Williams and the Fast and Furious Shame Brigade

Brian Williams was right last night when he said the story of Operation Fast and Furious and yesterday’s contempt hearing was complex. Perhaps if he and the rest of his merry MSM brigade had reported diligently on the story, it’d be easier to understand.

John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, to play Republican Mitt Romney in mock debate rehearsals, Obama campaign officials and the senator’s office confirmed Monday. […]

I don’t expect members of Congress to be geniuses. As conceived by the Founders, Congress was intended to be composed of regular citizens, so that you’d get the normal range of smarts, experience, and savvy as you would if you scooped up any 535 people. However, since the federal government has taken so much power […]
