    Harry Reid is an execrable human being. He is the brown stain in the Senate's undershorts. Reid has always been a jerk, the master of the insult: About George W. Bush: About Clarence Thomas: About DC tourists: About Mitt Romney: about John McCain: To his colleagues in the Senate: Reid once told the NY Times: “I’m just who I am, O.K.?” What he is is a classless POS. Dana Bash of CNN once asked Reid: "But if you can help one child with cancer, why won't you do it?" And Reid answered: "Listen," Reid said. "What -- why would we...

    Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) views income inequality as a moral issue that governments should address. Warren also says that a minimum wage increase is needed to stop income inequality. She equated the minimum wage to income inequality. Warren said that concentrated wealth as the result of a rigged system that funnels the gains from workers' productivity to their bosses, who suppress minimum wages. Isabel Sawhill, co-director of the Center on Children and Families at the Brookings Institution, about a minimum wage increase: "It will reduce inequality." Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama loves the idea of income inequality. Obama says "I...

    Our president promised us skyrocketing energy prices and a new era of "Green Energy". So far, he has been able to deliver an ever-increasing price for energy, and with the crisis in Eastern Europe, we can anticipate a continuing rise in energy prices. In an administration known almost exclusively for corruption and for its ability to lie, it is at least reassuring to see a "smidgen" of truthfulness., it's Obama's combination of national self-defeatism as an energy policy and of enabling our enemies that has become more bizarre with the passage of time. His refusal to allow drilling...

    Last night I watched Mara Liasson on the Fox News Special Report panel together with George Will and Charles Krauthammer. It was an education. The woman could not be the least bit swayed with facts and kept repeating falsehoods and was convinced that democrats had a winning issue by lying. Both Will and Krauthammer spoke to the illegitimacy of the democrat argument that women are making only 77% of what men make but Liasson would have none of it. She took a breath, licked her lips, grinned and asserted that the truth didn't matter to women. democrats would be able...

    One of the great things about children’s cartoons is how the characters can do the craziest things and somehow everyone walks away unscathed. How many times has Tweety Bird ended up in Sylvester’s mouth or under a clock only to end the episode smiling as Granny scolded Sylvester? How many times did Scooby Doo and Shaggy seem to be scared into heart attacks only to be back eating in the next scene? Then of course there is Tom & Jerry who seem to spend every episode blowing each other up, or poisoning one another or pounding on one another with...

    The fall offensive has begun. It is now claimed McObamacare has now served 7 million! More than seven million people enrolled in ObamaCare by the March 31 deadline, topping the White House's initial goal, the administration said Monday. Press secretary Jay Carney opened his daily briefing on Tuesday by saying the enrollment figure was 7,041,000. “Today we can say definitively, that at midnight last night, it's fair to say we surpassed everyone's expectations, at least everyone in this room,” Carney said. More people could be added to that number, since the administration is allowing consumers who were unable to complete...

    The concept that the whims of public opinion, the fads of the moment, or the opinions of an ideological opponent should fundamentally alter what a particular political party stands for has always seemed rather odd to me. It is an argument I see trotted out in articles from Left leaning sites on a regular basis. The argument is always, without fail, that the Republican Party needs to become more like the Democratic Party. Yet the reverse is never suggested for consideration. Great "concern" is showed time and time again by often very radical and liberal writers, as well as general...

    In my opinion Thomas Sowell is easily the smartest man in America. From Basic Economics, to Black Rednecks and White Liberals to his definitive dissection of the most recent economic collapse in The Housing Boom and Bust, his books are nothing short of brilliant. And of course it’s not just books, he writes a weekly column as well, does interviews, lectures and does research at Stanford’s Hoover Institute. His prodigious talents make him one of the great thinkers and writers of our time. As much as I enjoy and agree with almost everything Sowell writes, I believe he’s wrong about...

    They're going to be waiting a long time: Democrats have been waiting for ObamaCare to become popular for four years. And counting. Congressional leaders and senior White House advisers have been saying since 2010 that public opinion will turn their way sometime soon. Be patient, they have told anxious members of their party again and again. ...ObamaCare helped catapult Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) to the speakership of the House, and demolished dozens of Democratic political careers. Democrats now face the prospect of a second midterm drubbing in 2014, and the healthcare law is even more unpopular than it was last...

    The two great founding documents in American history are the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. Today, more than two centuries after each was written, people often conflate the two. How often have you heard someone say “It’s my right… it’s right there in the Constitution… Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Of course, that phrase is not in the Constitution at all. It’s in the Declaration. That conflation belies the fact that while both documents are important to our history, they are fundamentally different and do different things. The Declaration of Independence severed the ties with Great...

To wit, last week the Administration quietly excused millions of people from the requirement to purchase health insurance or else pay a tax penalty. This latest political reconstruction has received zero media notice, and the Health and Human Services Department didn't think the details were worth discussing in a conference call, press materials or fact sheet....

    The most common definition of a slave is: A person who is the property of and wholly subject to another. There is another definition however: A person entirely under the domination of some influence or person. Slavery has been outlawed in the US for 150 years, but some people want to bring it back… but not necessarily in the form you might think. Uncle Sam of course is not a master and citizens are not his slaves.

    The first time I ever saw a Wal-Mart I was a grad student getting my MBA down in Tallahassee, FL. One opened up down the road from my apartment and I was immediately taken by the big bright stores with lots of stuff and what seemed to be pretty low prices. In class I learned the secrets to Wal-Mart’s success in its niche of “Always low prices”. It demanded efficiencies from its suppliers. It became fanatical about using information technology to optimize its sourcing and distribution channels. It paid its employees the community average or sometimes slightly more, but never...

    Jim Messina, pasty white self-proclaimed "maestro" of the Barack Obama campaign for President, has shed his populist image for the trappings of capitalism. Jim Messina, the former campaign manager to President Barack Obama who spent two decades in politics out of the public eye, is increasingly stepping out from the shadows — and onto other Democrats’ toes. Messina is moving aggressively to capitalize on his newfound fame and status as the maestro who ran a masterful reelection campaign for a president mired in a slumping economy. He’s building a political fiefdom through his deep ties to rich Democrats and a...

    Apparently it's not enough to use the IRS and FCC to shut down the opposition. What does an aspiring democrat Senator wannabe do when he doesn't like an opposition TV ad? the woman cancer victim in the ad, and then threaten to take the station off the air. While Julie Boonstra of Dexter, Mich., struggles to survive leukemia, she now also has to cope with being called a liar by the Democrat who wants to be her next senator. And the campaign of Rep. Gary Peters is also going after television stations airing ads in which her story is...

    Apocalypticism has exploded in popularity and, while nuclear war and pandemics have always been a starting point, the concept of the Zombie Apocalypse trumps them all. The appeal and wild popularity of shows like The Walking Dead, movies like World War Z, and the slew of apocalyptic, gloom and doom series and specials on cable television continues to grow by leaps and bounds. But the reasons behind such interest are often subconscious at times and not fully understood. The Leftist activist and agitator Noam Chomsky was recently asked “why there’s this preoccupation with the apocalypse and with zombies right now...
  • Yes, Hillary is too old but it’s the brain damage that should concern you

    At National Journal Charlie Cook suggested that Hillary Clinton might be too old to run for President. The question remains: Is Hillary Clinton really a 100 percent lock to run? I think it is a pretty good bet, maybe 70 percent chance or so; but that also means there is an approximately 30 percent chance that she doesn't throw her hat in the ring. The current political environment certainly argues on behalf of a Clinton run, and it would be very difficult—but not impossible—for anyone to beat her for the nomination. However, these choices can never be considered 100 percent...

    The raging, twenty-four-seven political debates that virtually consume social media, many news sites, and entire cable stations is mostly filled with cheap shots, one-liners, bumper sticker slogans, and the same tired, half-truth arguments. The endless, partisan maneuvering and jockeying for power among the political parties and branches of government often completely masks the fact that the culture and policy wars are not just clashes between squabbling political parties, but often are really basic conflicts between fundamentally different belief systems, world views, and ideological viewpoints. But that is increasingly lost in the world of thirty second sound bites, character assassination, talking...

    “I could deny it if I liked. I could deny anything if I liked.” - Oscar Wilde It started with "You can keep your plan no matter what" but it didn't end there. Kathleen Sibelius is a good Obama soldier. She continues to support the state and its storyline faithfully, despite the obvious reality. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says there is “absolutely no evidence” that the Affordable Care Act will drive down employment, despite a report from the Congressional Budget Office released Feb. 4 predicting fewer people would be working. “There is absolutely no evidence, and every...

    Sean Penn is an idiot. But you knew that. There are more idiots in Hollywood. But you knew that too. Here is a who's who of Hollywood idiots who were supporters of Hugo Chavez. Oliver Stone, Danny Glover, Kevin Spacey, Harry Belafonte and Don King. Belafonte has claimed that millions of Americans support Chavez. Of Chavez government King once said "To see what is happening here makes me feel good all over." If only someone would shove a microphone up his in his face and in the faces of all these idiots and see what they have to say about...

    The GOP is so worried about being painted as racists or as the party that hates the poor that they forget to talk about what they actually supposed to stand for. The GOP establishment has spent a great deal of effort over the last decade pushing for amnesty under the guise of “comprehensive immigration reform”. This is of course because they are scared of the fact that minorities are going to become a majority in the US over the next 40 years and they don’t want to be left out in the cold. They have what I call a “Fear...

    The first sentence in this Mitt Romney article is the very definition of irony: Failed 2012 U.S. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said on Sunday he expects Hillary Clinton to win or lose the White House on her record, not that of her husband, former Democratic President Bill Clinton and his sexual indiscretions. "Failed Presidential nominee." Indeed. Mitt Romney is a really nice guy and that's why he lost. John McCain declared Obama's relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright "off limits."McCain is also known as a "Failed U.S. Republican presidential nominee." Mitt says Monica is off limits. McCain said Wright was...

    One can reasonably presume how today’s Left would characterize and attack the person I am about to describe to you. Without a doubt, he would be characterized as some sort of dangerous, right-wing, tea-bagging, homophobic, Christian Neanderthal who should be maligned, attacked, marginalized, silenced, and driven from power. Character assassination has become the weapon of choice for those who so forcefully peddle the liberal/progressive ideology. It is relentlessly used to silence all those who stand in opposition to the myriad of ‘isms’ they champion as they seek to “fundamentally transform” the country and society. I sincerely doubt they would spare...

    In the latter days of the Clinton administration Eric Holder engineered the pardons of Marc Rich and the FALN terrorists. In the early 2000's Holder was a senior partner in the law firm Covington & Burling. Covington & Burling was one of the law firms that had no interest in defending any US soldiers accused of misdeeds in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars but it couldn't do enough pro bono work for Gitmo detainees, successfully securing the release of one of them: One of the class of Yemeni Gitmo detainees that Falkoff described as “gentle, thoughtful young men” was released...
