When a Broken Clock Gets It Right

Hand me down my foil hat!  Conspiracies abound! It has been said by the religiously inclined that the biggest trick the devil ever pulled off was to make people think he didn’t exist.  It allows him to run wild and wreak havoc unchecked.  Unaware of the source of evil, people can’t stop him.  This is […]

Don't Eat Your Young! Please, No Fratricide!

My goodness!  Operation Moron is waaay behind schedule.  Give me a break on that.  My day job kept me away and I just moved to a new house. Let’s Employ the Reagan Rule. The Republican field is shaping up nicely.  Pay no attention to the early poles.  Especially where it applies to your favorite candidate. […]

Yep. We Know All This. So?

I love being right!  I really do.  I don’t pretend not to be smug at times like this.  The part I don’t like is that every day we have times like this. I kicked off the idea here, but I let two moves in 6 months derail the process.   But I’m  all settled in […]

Uncle Sam Wants Gutless, Witless Yes Men!

This year marked the second commencement address at a military academy during which the Muslim-in-chief wasted the time of all present and insulted the hard work of graduates. Doing so, he set back the concept of national defense immeasurable by telling the future offices of the Unites States Coast Guard that the greatest threat to […]

Canard of the Week: A Little Privacy in Exchange for Security.

Let me give you my down and dirty regarding the government collecting anything it wants electronically.  Yes, I did say anything it wants.  There are no legitimate controls in place.  One would hope that NSA domestic spying is dead, but let’s not assume anything. We use this information to stop terrorism.  Urm, uh, Yeah. The […]

Warping History for Ego and Political Gain.

If I believed in any type of spirit world, I would have to conclude that George Orwell was the greatest prophet of all time. There is so little left of his 1984 world yet unrealized. Like all big news stories, throngs of Americans want so badly to insert themselves into the narrative, as if they […]

Complete Corruption

Just what, I wonder, do the character assassins have on Chief Justice John Roberts.  What twisted perversion did he get busted engaging in?  What bribe did they catch him taking?  What drug was he taped ingesting? He once again, stepped into the well (see Obama’s Top 50 What?! in this blogspot) and changed the administration’s […]

My New Campaign Helping Social Whiners

My New Banner This is the symbol I am using for my Be Kind To Social Whiners campaign.  Like it?  It’s rather flashy I admit. But I wanted to draw special attention to the plight of those who feel the need to whine incessantly.  It must be such a headache to be them. It is […]

An excerpt from 16 20 24: A Path to Consistent Conservative Victory

Did you know the EPA packs heat? Oh, yeah. Nice stuff, too.  SIG Sauer; stainless steel, no less. I own five weapons. I can’t afford stainless steel.[1] WTF?!?! The EPA is a policy arm of the government. What jackass gave them police authority? How can it possibly be justified? Let’s suppose the EPA decided the […]

Obama and Iran Share Hostages for Mutual Ends

While Boehner and McConnell Continue to Play With Themselves. This was too important to tack onto an older post as an update. So, do you want to know how to spot a nasty political whore? See who votes to support Obama’s efforts to get a nuke for Iran. For the truly slow, that has been […]

Minimum Wage Laws = Minimum Thinking

3 Mar 14 George Will once posited this question: If by some miracle everyone’s net worth and income measured against purchasing power were to triple overnight,  would the howling about income disparity suddenly go away? The answer is, of course not.  The reason is because pundits and politicians favored by the non-thinking class would point out the […]

Toe is in the water

3 Mar 14 I have been reading The Economist quite a bit lately.  One might think with a name like that you’d find clear-eyed, conservative content; not at all.  It is a product from across the pond and is chock full of some of the most well-worn liberal drivel in print.  Last year they ran […]

The First Debate is in the Can!

Update: I am glad to say, I was wrong with my post debate predictions for Rubio, Fiorina and Carson. Congrats all three! 7 Aug 15 It wasn’t easy to avoid turning on the TV this morning to watch the fallout from last night. But now, the chores are done, workout finished and I can sit […]

Let Us Pray!

11 March 2014 Tonight, the well of the Senate has been transmogrified into a church.  Adherents are gathered to give witness to the power of the gods of climate.  They will piously warn of the devastation that awaits us if we listen to the apostate flat-earthers who doubt the holy writ.  They will ignore the MASSIVE ice […]

The Tell: How Jay Carney signals to everyone that the Administration is unworthy of our trust.

I want to play poker with James Carney.  I want to see him throw a handful of blue chips after drawing two cards.  Then I want to watch that little turd’s left, upper lip fold back and his head drift down and to the left when he declares his bet. Carney came to this White […]

See?!?!?! This is why Republicans don't win more elections!

Well, I suppose I should concede that there are several reasons the Republican party snatches defeat from the jaws of victory. The one we’ll visit with here comes to us from John Alley of the Fredericksburg Coalition of Reason (FredCoR).  It seems Al Bedrosian (R – Roanoke County, Va) needs to go away for a little […]

A Cautionary Tale; Irresponsibility and Corruption.

Economics is a simple discipline.  It’s people who EFF it up. There is a school of thought that says by letting the value of the dollar slip again and again, we keep the price of our goods down, increasing foreign trade.  You don’t want a trade deficits, right? Well, who the hell cares?  Markets come […]

The Entire Federal Government is a Sewer. I Blame You!

 Yes, you!  I mean you…personally! Update 13 Nov 15: It seems that every election brings the clarion call of the under-educated saying we need to get rid of the Electoral College. This call is very popular among in the very places it is meant to protect. Without the EC, places like Detroit, Philadelphia, New York, […]

Obama's top 50 WHAT?!

The Washington Monthly, in their March/April edition of 2012, published a list of the Jerrett, er uh, excuse me; the Obama Administration’s top 50 Accomplishments.  Needless to say, a blizzard of comments followed.  I was not aware of the article until a friend on Facebook brought it to my attention in order to make the […]
