Matthew Yglesias is the business and economics correspondent for Slate Magazine. He is also a fierce partisan progressive who has worked for the far-left new media outlets Think Progress and Talking Points Memo. Which Matthew Yglesias do you suppose tweeted this today, the professional economics writer or the partisan hack? How many of the people […]

Normally, when a mere mortal like you or me launches an endeavor and fails in an early part of it, we do what Nat King Cole suggested — pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and start all over again. Sometimes, though, you find one of the petulant few, the person who believes their own BS, […]

I figure we’ve eaten up a lot of bytes over the story of how Chick-Fil-A has become a symbol of all that is evil in America, how every last franchise should be burned to the ground, how its employees should be harassed as they go about their duties, and how the poisonous hate-chicken should be […]

If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.–George Washington In 1967, a man named S.Truett Cathy transformed a tiny Atlanta diner called the Dwarf House into a restaurant that would eventually become the nation’s second largest quick-service chicken chain–a place many Americans […]

Yes, President Obama Really Has Stifled Oil Industry Jobs

Yes, President Obama Really Has Stifled Oil Industry Jobs

| April 10, 2012 | 1 Reply

Brian Beutler of Talking Points Memo was baffled yesterday. How, he wondered, could Republicans say President Obama is throttling the oil industry’s ability to create jobs when it has created jobs at a high rate, compared to pretty much every other industry? Why, doesn’t that rapidly-climbing arrow in his chart demonstrate just the opposite? Well, […]

Does it bother you when people treat you like you are a drooling idiot, like you are Tim Curry right before he jumps out the hotel window in The Shadow? If so, Episode 139 should get you good and riled up. See, the Obama administration believes it’s packed full of the biggest brains in the […]

Remember how the feckless buffoons in the MSM told us, over and over and over again, that the Tea Parties were little more than Astroturfed angry mobs that could break out into violence at any moment? None of their panicky false prophesies came to pass, as hundreds of Tea Party rallies came and went without […]

It is an act of rank journalistic malfeasance that most of America had not heard of Derrick Bell, the father of one of the most noxious racist philosophies ever created, before last week. I did the job in Episode 138 the MSM still refuses to do, but I did a bit more than that. Bell’s […]

What it is with progressives and the Constitution? I don’t mean the usual progressive problem with the supreme law of our land, namely that it doesn’t let them render Republicans into a bland but nutritious gruel with which to feed the unwashed masses who will live in their Shining Utopia. I mean the problem with […]

It has become nearly an article of faith inside the Democratic Party and the MSM (a Venn diagram that consists of one large circle) that the Republicans have launched a “War on Women”. They have come to this belief because Republicans have, in a most dastardly fashion, said it is wrong for our government to […]
