Did you build that? You did not. You did not build that at all. Quite frankly, you should be ashamed for taking credit for work you didn’t do and money you clearly didn’t earn. Now go to your room and think about what you’ve done. Thief. (via Kurt Schlichter, whose Twitter feed is the only [...]

This evening, the President took a swing by David Letterman’s show to get a little tongue bath from a man who once made a crude sex joke on the air about Sarah Palin’s 14-year old daughter. During the interview, Barack Obama launched a little attack against Mitt Romney in which he said this: Pres Obama [...]
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 [...]

Put me in the same camp as Stacy McCain. Some readers may wonder why I haven’t published anything about the battle over mandatory contraceptive coverage under ObamaCare.

Mark Steyn wrote about the same TSA stories I noted over the weekend and his conclusion, well, I couldn’t have written better.
Why do we allow the TSA to continue to exist? This is a serious question, folks. There isn’t a person alive who can name one terrorist the TSA has caught, not one plot the agency’s automatons have thwarted with their rigid adherence to rules built by brainless bureaucrats.
Peter Orszag, the former Director of the Office of Budget and Management in the Obama administration, thinks we have entirely too much democracy. According to him, we need lots of commissions and panels that will just do things for us, without all that messy voting and debating and gridlock. In an 1814 letter to John [...]
If I had to pick one major difference between conservatives and progressives, it would be that conservatives choose to deal with the world as it is while progressives believe they can alter the unalterable until it matches their view of what the world should be. You will not find a better illustration of this difference [...]
