TROUBLE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY


I keep thinking about Barack Obama’s dilemma represented by his “thumping,” his “mega-defeat.”  (That’s not me talking: those are the words of the veteran Democratic strategist James Carville, so don’t anyone go accusing me of racism, or something.)  What is … Continue reading

REPOST: BETTER CLINTON THAN OBAMA? SURELY YOU JEST.


This revisit of one of my 2011 posts was occasioned by Hillary going “full Lenin” by claiming that corporations and businesses do not create jobs.  This ejaculation was a timely reminder just what kind of a national disaster this woman … Continue reading

WEIGHTY WHAT-IFS FOR MEMORIAL DAY

COME ON, JUNIOR!


Jesse Jackson Jr., Congressman from Illinois, displayed his razor-sharp brilliance today by pointing out that Congressional opposition to Obama’s “Jobs” Act is akin to Confederate states in rebellion, and should be treated as such. (h/t Maggie’s Farm). JJ Junior told … Continue reading

FREEDOM? WHAT’S THAT?


I cannot imagine U.S. troops – the guys who, for a century now, fought all over the world in support of freedom – marching against their own people.  Well, unfortunately, yes I can: after all, I did grow up in … Continue reading
