  • Paul Ryan, Joe Biden, and Liberal False Equivalence

    Catholic Vote ^ | August 10, 2012 | Carson Holloway
    As Josh Mercer noted earlier today, Mitt Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate sets up a stark contrast between the two Catholics on the two contending national-tickets. Ryan is pro-life and a supporter of marriage as the Church understands it (and as it has been understood by the whole human race time out of mind, that is, as a union of a man and a woman). As a public man, at least, Biden rejects these Catholic positions and advocates for the opposite positions.This contrast will, of course, be somewhat embarrassing to liberal Catholics who want to...
  • New liberal spin: Obama's a conservative

    The Washington Examiner ^ | August 8, 2012 | Paul Bedard
    Liberals upset with Barack Obama's few compromises with the GOP have a new moniker for the president many consider the most left ever: "Deeply conservative." Academics and liberal pundits have started talking about Obama as right-of-center politically just as he has begun to reach out to independents and moderates in his reelection campaign. Some are true critics who wish he would do more for labor and welfare recipients and implement tougher carbon limits on coal plants. Others are trying to portray Obama as a middle-of-of-the-roader attractive to moderate voters, not the liberal Mitt Romney attacks daily. The latest claim that...

    Every attempt to find the dumbest thing in liberal world this week just led to another, and another, each dumber than the last. Picking just one to rant about became a task of epic proportions, so two of them it is. In no particular order…A Chicken The name Adam Smith has a storied history, particularly in economics. Now, that name has a smudge on it thanks to Adam Smith of Arizona. This Mr. Smith became infamous on Wednesday for his uncontrollable hatred for anyone who might disagree with him on the issue of gay marriage. That’s fine. Far be it...

    ...rivals Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman are both Mormons whose ancestral roots run deep into the churchs pioneer history... But in public remarks they have drawn strikingly different religious self-portraits. Romney is highly active and orthodox...he has embraced his church unequivocally: I believe in my Mormon faith and endeavor to live by it," he said in a major speech in 2007. Huntsman has called his adherence to Mormon practices tough to define..." ...a growing debate about whether this relatively new religion can accommodate a more elastic definition of what it means to be Mormon.

    A while back I posted some match-ups for conservative women and superheroines (see them here) with the promise to follow up with liberal super villains. The premise is simple (and in this case, easy to make), match up a liberal to a villain in pop culture. With the previous post it was limited to comics/sci-fi, I loosened up a bit for this one.In some ways this was a little more difficult, some of the villians have very little source material to work with. However, I do have more matches than I did with the ladies.

    Its been like this since 6:00 AM. It was 8:15 PM. The employee had a tired but sincere smile on his face as he went from car to car, already a block from his restaurant, thanking customers for both their patience and their support. Chick Fil-A Appreciation Day has apparently taken on a life far greater than anyone could have envisioned, and according to reports pouring in from around the country, the Bible-respecting chicken franchise has had to call in off-duty staff in an attempt to keep up with the hordes of people flocking to the store. Out of...
  • Liberal political correctness going for Gold in London Olympics

    07/31/2012 6:36:52 PM PDT · by Marketfly1 · 3 replies ^ | July 31, 7012 | Jeff Crouere
    For seven years, the people of London has been preparing for the Olympics. The city has been scrubbed clean and new facilities were constructed for the big event. City leaders have been very proud of the massive effort that it took to stage the Olympics. Unfortunately, there have been a number of real problems such as a lack of security personnel and hundreds of empty seats at numerous events. The embarrassing footage has forced organizers to fill in seats with members of the British military.

    Flopping Aces ^ | 07-26-12 | Brother Bob
    For too many years the left has used the charge of racism to put opponents on the defensive and deflect from serious debate on the issues. This practice also gets used across the spectrum of demagoguery. Are you against laws that lead to grammar school children being taught about gay marriage or religious adoption agencies being forced to close because they won't place children with gay couples? You're homophobic. Are you against laws that support federally funded abortions for 13 year old girls without parental notification? Sexist. Suggest that a presidential candidate who happens to be black with no meaningful...

    Chicago Red Sun Times ^ | 7/26/12 | Mary Mitchell
    Apparently, Mayor Rahm Emanuel agrees, saying, Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values. Thomas M. Menino, Bostons mayor, has also vowed to deny the restaurant chain a permit to build there. The problem with this sanctimonious dissing of Chick-fil-A is that there is no proof the business has discriminated against gay couples, let alone any of its customers or employees. In fact, company executives assured Moreno they would leave the debate about gay rights to the politicians and government. But those assurances apparently arent good enough. Moreno is attempting to deny Chick-fil-A the right to do business in the 1st Ward...

    The recent General Convention of the Episcopal Church has prompted a broader discussion of the fate of liberal Christianity. No surprisethe Episcopal Church has been one of the most aggressively liberal influences in American Christianity in the past few years, pushing hard against the traditions of the broader Anglican Communion. In The New York Times, Ross Douthat goes so far as to ask, "Can Liberal Christianity Be Saved?" But that question necessarily prompts two others: What is Liberal Christianity, and Should it be saved? Liberal Christianity is dying on the vine. Mainline denominations are taking big hits across the board....

    For how long have people with common sense had to listen to the pure garbage being produced in mass quantities by the "left-wing," "progressives," "anti-war," "occupy," "peace activist," yada, yada, yada crowd? These thugs, censors, and condescending bigots have been claiming for years that Syria has no weapons of mass destruction (see here and here), even though some of us have been warning to the contrary for years (see here and here). Well... guess... what... the Associated Press announced today that: The Syrian regime threatened Monday to use its chemical and biological weapons in case of a foreign attack, in...
  • Liberal Media Is Tanking (Free Republic Mentioned)

    The general consensus amongst most experts and analysts -- even those hired by the mainstream media -- is that there are political biases in mainstream media. Media has been divided into two distinct factions: liberal and conservative. The bad news in recent decades has fallen on the shoulders of the liberal media. Ratings for CNN have been in steady decline since 2003. Canada's Postmedia has announced major cutbacks that include layoffs and less circulation. Although Postmedia is not often recognized as liberal, it has been known to focus extensively on biased editorials and op-ed pieces in its major newspapers. This...

    Still one of my favorites... Imagine a city where all the major economic planks of the statist or "progressive" platform have been enacted: A "living wage" ordinance, far above the federal minimum wage, for all public employees and private contractors. A school system that spends significantly more per pupil than the national average. A powerful school employee union that militantly defends the exceptional pay, benefits and job security it has won for its members. Other government employee unions that do the same for their members. A tax system that aggressively redistributes income from businesses and the wealthy to the poor...

    ANTI-ISRAEL BOMBER IN BULGARIA WAS RELEASED FROM GITMO THANKS TO LEFT By WILLIAM BIGELOW Leftists who hate Israel can rejoice; their efforts at securing the release of a Gitmo detainee and their subsequent lionizing of him allowed him to murder five Israelis in the bombing Wednesday in Burgas, Bulgaria. The bomber has been identified as Mehdi Ghezali, who was detained at Gitmo Bay in Cuba from 2002 to 2004. According to Wikileaks documents, Ghazali was uncooperative, unforthcoming and deceptive during interrogations. His father had met with Abdolrahman Barzanjee, an Al Qaeda associate and possible Ansar Al-Islam coordinator for Europe (Ansar...

    Richard Kind is a funny, talented actor. I had the pleasure of working with him when I did a cameo on the show "Spin City," where Kind co-starred. He was thoughtful and helpful on set, even though I was a dreaded non-lefty. Fast forward to this year's White House Correspondents' dinner. Pleased to be invited, Kind gave an interview to The Hollywood Reporter. After praising President Barack Obama as "the smartest man in the room," Kind offered his opinion on what issue he "cares most about": "The disparity between the ultra-rich and the next level is as disgraceful as anything...

They could not believe that I was against Obamacare. One 25 year old kid asked me why I would be against something that is "FREE"? I was on the grass rolling around laughing. After I questioned we discovered that he worked and has a car. I asked him if it was okay to take money from him to by my two sons cars, because they do...
