Then use a piping […]

Bush and Clinton had recoveries. For 99%, Obama’s recovery does not exist.

Posted: March 8, 2012 at 5:00 pm   /   Politics

Look at this chart from James Pethokoukis’ piece titled For 99 percent of Americans, the Obama recovery has been no recovery at all. It says a lot:   Pethokoukis points out that the source of this chart, a liberal statist economist, is obsessing over the income inequality aspect of the chart. Not a surprise. And that this economist, […]

A Few More Reasons to Send Obama Packing

Posted: March 7, 2012 at 3:10 pm   /   Politics

I sometimes think that Republicans are genetically compelled to bring water pistols to a gun fight.  While I acknowledge that it’s difficult to combat the bully pulpit the Left commands, thanks to a corrupt media, I really am sick and tired of hearing Mitch McConnell referring to “Our friends on the other side of the […]

Reason TV has a video update (below) on the story of the federal government’s targeting of Gibson Guitars for supposed violations of the Lacey Act. For those familiar with the story, it is a chilling glimpse into the future for all of us, if we allow Obama and the left’s vision of governance to hold […]

Where left and right collide?

Posted: February 23, 2012 at 5:00 pm   /   Politics, Videos

We have a tendency to assume that the ideological divides of today will be the ideological divides of tomorrow. However, a look at history quickly dispels that notion. Yes, some divides have remained fairly steady, like preferences for less vs. more government. But many other positions have changed, and who holds them has changed, over […]

Study: fracking hasn’t contaminated groundwater

Posted: February 20, 2012 at 3:25 pm   /   Politics, Videos

Every writer develops pet peeves. Conservative political writers—being up against an ideology that is often simultaneously unserious and conceited, irrational and hostile—develop lots of them.

Obama’s plan: Make it harder for lower & middle-incomes to go to college

Posted: February 10, 2012 at 12:30 pm   /   Politics

I have argued numerous times that the left’s policies—incessant marketing to the contrary notwithstanding—don’t actually help the poor. I have also argued at length that conservatives, Republicans, and free-marketeers everywhere should go on offense on that very point. One of the many exhibits in evidence for this case was described not too long ago by […]
