In an earlier post, I wrote on the subject of the left’s double standards when it comes to civility: Over a decade ago, I said the following, and I have stood by the notion ever since: If Bill Clinton had been a Republican and had done the things he did to women, “feminists” would have […]

The Left’s War on Women

Posted: March 12, 2012 at 9:20 am   /   Politics, Videos

Over a decade ago, I said the following, and I have stood by the notion ever since: If Bill Clinton had been a Republican and had done the things he did to women, “feminists” would have been apoplectic. The left would have been losing its collective mind. Patricia Ireland would have immolated herself on the […]

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.
