Liars and Dupes

The left has been arguing for years that the Bush tax cuts went mostly to the wealthy and that the Obama deficits have been caused not by over-spending but by the Bush tax cuts. Those of us who pointed to the actual numbers indicating otherwise were (at best) ignored but usually attacked.
Well we have now [...]

As the Dems Convene…

The Democrats have kicked off their convention in the otherwise lovely city of Charlotte, NC to defend a failed presidency and try to convince people that more progressive policies are just what we need.

The national debt has hit $16 trillion.
A federal judge has ordered tax payers to fund an inmate’s sex change operation.

Those Rumors

I am not a gossip.  So I am not going to repeat the continuing rumor that  #HarryReidIsAPederast.

Leftist Suppresses Dissent

Not surprisingly in the wake of the Aurora movie theater shooting my lefty dominated Facebook wall had many calls for more gun control.  One friend posted a particularly bad poster that was filled with basic factual errors.
I posted a response gently correcting the record. Another lefty reacted to my comments with a borderline incoherent, utopian [...]

Lessons of the ObamaCare Debate

Regardless of how the Supreme Court rules on ObamaCare, the debate has highlighted some of the worst characteristics of Progressives, particularly their arrogant, dismissive, and disrespectful attitudes.
For two years conservatives have been arguing that the individual mandate is unconstitutional.  And for two years the left has derided us as a bunch of lunatics.
Conservatives have been [...]

So Tolerant and Open-Minded

I had an exchange online with an old friend and a few people he knows.  I am posting the text of it, anonymized with a couple minor edits, because the debate and what happened after is such a great snapshot of the left.
Old Friend:
Westerners are not taught that the hoarding of wealth is an act [...]

OWS Oakland Riots

While I have a certain amount of sympathy for people who get tear gassed (I know from personal experience what it’s like), I can’t help but note a certain irony.
These are not libertarians demanding to be left alone.  These are people demanding bigger, stronger government.  They failed to understand the longstanding conservative warning that “a [...]

The Left Proven Wrong - Again

Apparently, before he was sent to a watery grave, Osama bin Laden complained that Al Qaeda had an image problem: it didn’t appear religious enough.  So, Bin Laden proposed renaming Al Qaeda to “Restoration of the Caliphate Group.”
This is buried in the middle of an AP piece but it is, I think, quite significant.  The [...]

National Self-Defense vs. Personal Self-Defense

There has ben a lot of discussion by the academic left about whether the killing of Osama Bin Laden was justified.  The people questioning the OBL killing don’t seem to question that a nation has a right to defend itself from a direct attack, but are raising the question of whether that is applicable here.
I’m [...]

Joe Biden on Egypt

The media have long ignored the epic wrongness of Joe Biden, probably because they agree with him and he sounds authoritative.  His latest blunder was saying that Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak wasn’t a dictator.
It was reported matter-of-factly here and there without fanfare.  But ask yourself this: what if Sarah Palin said that?  We’d be hearing [...]

The Left is Crazy

The left has utterly lost its grounding in reality.  They seem to be suffering from a kind of mass psychosis in accusing conservatives of being in any way responsible for the mass shooting in Arizona.  The guy seems to be stone-cold crazy.  Nothing more, nothing less.  To the extent that he appears to have any [...]

The Epistemic Closure Yawn

Jonathan Chait, referencing a Washington Post article, is accusing conservatives of epistemic closure in their treatment of Obama’s comments on American Exceptionalism.  Please.
First of all, the description of of American Exceptionalism as “the idea that the United States is inherently superior to the world’s other nations” is wrong.  It would better be described as “the [...]

Lincoln’s Cooper Union Address

I just read Lincoln’s Cooper Union Address for the first time.  Despite having studied history, I had never actually read it.  I think I have a good idea why it was omitted from the curriculum: it’s totally inconvenient to the left’s world view.  Lincoln lays out an ingenious case for why the Founders are not, [...]

Obama-Holder Axis of Fail!

Well wouldn’t you know it.  The first civilian trial a Gitmo detainee ended disastrously for the Justice Department.  Ahmed Ghailani was acquitted on 280 or so counts.  The only conviction was on a conspiracy charge.
So despite all the promises from Obama, Holder and the left that there would be no problem with civilian trials, there [...]

A Case Study in Leftwing Thought

Oklahoma voters approved an amendment to their constitution that bans the use of Sharia law (as well as international law) in its state courts.  A federal judge promptly put issued a temporary restraining order.  I find the left’s reaction to it informative.
Politico has a nice concentrated dose of leftwing thought by people who are supposed [...]

Not Dangerous Art vs. Dangerous Art

So, it seems there’s an artist who as a very political piece that involves Jesus having sex.  A lot of people are understandably offended.  It’s worth noting, however, that they are expressing their annoyance without riots, deaths and violence throughout Christendom.  The artist has not gone into hiding.  He is not under 24 armed guard. [...]

Lefties Being Lefties

I’m always amused when the left falsely accuses conservatives of engaging in the very behavior that the left actually indulges in.  A nice example was in today’s (still bankrupt) Inquirer.
At the lefty wanna-be-Glenn-Beck rally, one Peggy Brown gave us this piece of analysis:
“Fox News, that’s about as bad as you can get” and…conservative personalities Beck, [...]

Violent Leftwing Fantasy

There’s a video that has to be seen to believed.  It’s posted on National Review at the moment.  I think it’s supposed to be a humorous (maybe) attempt by some left wing environmentalists to get people to commit to reducing their carbon footprint.  It involves, though, killing people who don’t sign on (including school kids). [...]

Peace, Love and Firebombs

You may recall that a few months ago a Malaysian court ruled that Christians had the right to use the word “Allah” in their publications.  The response, predictably, was outrage and violence by Muslims.  Well it turns out that the Ground Zero mosque imam, Faisal Rauf, had something to say about this.
I’m sure you’re thinking [...]

Creative Hit Job

The Inquirer did a charming hit job on its editorial page today.  I’ll give them a little credit for creativity since this one is a visual trick.  Here’s a screenshot and a link to the editorial.

That’s a picture of Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett next to a headline that says “Enabling prostitution”.  The editorial is [...]
