I’m again returning to the old blog, or at least attempting to do so. I’ve been pondering working with a different theme. I’ve been using this one since sometime in 2004, I think. There are pretty fancy themes out there, but I’ve always like the clean look here without all the cluttered side bars and [...]
A couple of recent news stories have reminded me of why I support the death penalty for the rather crude reason that some people just deserve to die. The first case is that of Steven Hayes, one of two men in the much-publicized Petit murders. Hayes and his buddy invaded the home of Dr. William [...]
Democratic House majority leader Steny Hoyer submitted this editorial to the Wall Street Journal and it’s… amazing. Even the world of disingenuous, self-serving, factually-challenged political pablum, this is some piece of work. Hoyer either has no shame, great chutzpah, or just thinks people are too stupid to notice the BS. It deserves a nice fisking. [...]
Somehow or another during the 2008 presidential campaign, I wound up on Barack Obama’s e-mail list. At first, I was a little irritated at my address padding his formidable number of addresses, but then I started liking seeing what the crew is saying to its supporters. What I constantly find interesting is the language. The [...]
So in the process of reading the story about Obama saying we're still working on our democracy, I found this exchange most interesting: The Wall Street Journal's Jonathan Weisman asked McFaul to clarify. "You seemed to be suggesting there was some equivalence between their issues of democracy and the United States' issues, when you said that President [...]
They told me when critics said health care reform would hurt businesses’ bottom line that it was a Republican scare tactic. AT&T to Book $1 Billion Cost on Health-Care Reform And it’s the biggest in a series of companies doing the same thing.
Among the reasons I’ve probably posted less to this blog was because I discovered Facebook and it’s a remarkable time waster. While it’s unlikely I’ll leave it, I’ve grown tired of some of the utter shallowness of it all. It’s like a gigantic polite dinner party where everybody engages in some basic small talk and [...]
Claire McCaskill, Missouri Democrat: We may have overpromised on the health care bill, but it will take several years for it to be fully enacted. But the other side went over the top in saying the sky would fall and it hasn’t fallen. Yet, Rep. McCaskill. There’s a correlation in the bill not being fully [...]
They told me when opponents said I wouldn’t actually be able to keep my insurance plan, even though I liked it, that it was a Republican smear tactic. AP: Companies say health care costs hard to swallow. (With respect to Instapundit.)
I’m worried. I’ve been fighting this feeling for awhile and tried to avoid appearing reactionary or overreactionary to recent events, but I’m worried. Something is happening here and it isn’t pretty. I’ve grown to distrust modern liberalism. Its adherents keep changing the U.S. into something it’s not supposed to be and wasn’t meant to be. [...]
Just realized that Monday of last week marks the 8th year of this blog’s operation.
For Nancy Pelosi, the ends justify the means. But I guess we knew that, didn’t we? Pelosi: Health Reform “Model” For Future Reform Efforts
Oh, Joe Biden. You make Bush and Quayle gaffes look positively lame.
(Note – This was written prior to the passing of the bill) The current health care reform proposals from the Democrats are simply bad. If nothing else, it asks the American people to engage in a massive suspension of disbelief. Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the rest claim that the reform will cover more people, cut [...]
Obama does like to play Chicago-style politics. Politics itself is a rough business, but the O has taken it to a weird public degree that does not respect the separation of the branches. Recall how he chastised the Supreme Court during his State of the Union address. He appears to be up to something similar [...]
