Separated at Birth: Saul Alinksy and…Well, Just Look.

Separated at Birth: Saul Alinksy and…Well, Just Look.

While watching this very good video on one of Saul Alinky’s Rules for Radicals, I made a sudden realization. Saul Alinksy looks a lot like the Nazi from Raiders of the Lost Ark whose face melted at the end of the movie. Seriously. Here is Alinsky. And here’s melty-face Nazi (played by Ronald Lacey). Separated […]

A few looney lefties made some news lately by announcing their weasel-clever plan to discredit the Tea Party movement. Here’s how it was supposed to work. They will recruit local ne’er-do-wells to stealthily infiltrate various Tea party protests and pose as sympathetic racist, sexist, government-hating, ultra-violent wackos. When the media show up to cover the […]

When we last saw Max Baucus, Democratic Senator from Montana and Chair of the Finance Committee, he was busy trying to get his girlfriend a job as a United States’ Attorney. I think perhaps his colleagues would prefer he stick to the petty corruption instead of playing Spokesman of the Progressive Movement. He really let […]

The Totalitarianism of Today

The Totalitarianism of Today

| March 23, 2010 | 1 Reply

I have often equated today’s progressive politics to totalitarianism — the philosophy that the nation, and all of us, work for the government and are, in turn, cared for by it. The overall political goal of the left is to have the government make all our decisions for us in the interests of “the common […]

With such Constitutional brilliance at work in the House of Representatives, how could Obamacare possibly go awry? During an interview Capitol Hill Friday, CNSNews.com asked Rep. Conyers, “The individual mandate in the bill requires individuals to purchase health insurance. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has said that never before in the history of the United […]

I wonder how Il Wiener held himself back from yelling “Tutto nello Stato, niente al di fuori dello Stato, nulla contro lo Stato”? Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (N.Y.), crashing his Republican colleagues’ mischief, went out on the balcony and waved. “I feel like Mussolini now!” he said as the crowd booed him. This may amuse […]

Kucinich Flips: Presidential Pressure or a Doghouse Threat? (I Vote Doghouse)

| March 17, 2010 | Reply

Is it just me or does Dennis Kucinich look like someone’s off-stage holding a gun on him? Kucinich announced yesterday that he will be voting for the ginormous Obamacare bill even though it violates about a bazillion of his most cherished progressive principles. Okay, he didn’t say that last part, but you can read that […]

One of the practical problems with the boilerplate “tax the rich” strategy is that the rich are not stupid. When taxes in one state rise to an unacceptable level, they move to another where the tax rate is more to their liking. The new state gets a big infusion of tax revenues and the progressives […]

CA Progressive: Vote on A Bill? Don’t Be Ridiculous!

This is easily the quote of the week. “I don’t need to see my colleagues vote for the Senate bill in the House. We don’t like the Senate bill. Why should we be forced to do that?” said [Representative Lynn] Woolsey, D-Calif. “But what we need to know, before any Senate bill is passed, that […]

I accuse the progressive left of a lot of things, not the least of which is trying, by any means necessary, to get control of your life. But what on Earth am I supposed to think when I read a quote like this? You’ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the […]
