After discussing some data points and everything from
Wal-Mart to Wall Street with folks from the
conservative investor class over Thanksgiving, there's a case
to be made that if you pay taxes and pay your bills on time, you
shopped at Wal-Mart today, whether you realize it, or not.
Mindless, irresponsible consumerism...
In reading the opening graphs to an
Instapundit link on the origin of Thanksgiving, I couldn't help
but think, how is it those people didn't know the war was
obviously lost? For heaven's sake, they should have re-deployed,
perhaps making what is now California the sum total of "the United
In keeping with the demonic image the Left has of the Right, I
encourage all my conservative friends to find an Indian for
Thanksgiving. Get him drunk, steal his money and his woman, if
she’s faux-Pocahontas cute – pack him off with a set of anal love
beads and put him on a plane bound for San Fran ...
This one quote below – tucked away at the bottom of
page 2 in this Politico item dealing with Democrats at
odds - highlights my chief concern over an Obama Presidency.
For all his inflated press, Obama has never really painted himself
as a leader, so much as he has a mediator. That sounds...
Michelle Malkin has a round-up on the Citicorp bailout. She's been
consistent in saying the bailouts won't work. I agree and disagree
with Michelle. Let me explain.
Simply put – America, the world in fact, is in trouble because
of bad credit and bad risk-taking. Jumping up above the dirty
details and blame,...
One of Bush/Cheney's most profound and often ignored impacts
is their ability to bring out the utter stupidity of
today's media. For that alone Bush deserves to be considered a
You can conclude one of two things from this New York Times editorial calling for
Bush to resign and configure a way for Obama to...
My apologies for the impolite term. But this below
from David Sirota at Open Left is a full bore brain fart if there ever was one.
Maybe Kirchick is correct in writing Obama doesn't fear the Netroots. Or maybe he
just isn't seeing any of them making any sense these days.
As for me,...
At least we won't be reading any stories about Treasury
Secretary Henry Paulson tooling around in a private jet.
I wish there was some terrific blogger-ish scoop I could share
after spending five hours on a plane flying coast-to-coast with the
man holding on to so much taxpayer cash to give away....
Somebody needs to invent a condom to protect business models
from these types of suits. eHarmony agreed to
open a gay dating site to settle a suit. What, doesn't Second Life
have steam baths, or public restrooms?
Will they call it eHomony? Just a suggestion!
So, this is “progress?” eHarmony, a Christian-targeted dating
Arnold must have a bigger mess on his hands in California than I
imagined. Why else would they have sold Los Angeles to the
Actually the trip has been cool – a bit hectic. Had an
opportunity to actually drive in the infamous LA rush hour today.
Would have gone...
Betsy links to a Thomas Sowell item:
While demanding tolerance from others, gay activists apparently
feel no need to show any themselves.
How did we get to this kind of situation?
With all the various groups who act as if they have a right to
win, we got to the present situation over the...
I'll be posting some but I have to get ready for a short trip –
heading out to the LA Auto Show for a couple of days.
In the meantime, check out Memeorandum for the latest on the blogs.
These are interesting times, to say the least. But the real
action starts after...
Before the new year has even started, Democrats on the Hill
already face two major problems that are going to be far from
easy to resolve. And as the deteriorating economic situation
isn't predicted to be much improved by 2010, early votes Democrats
will almost have to make could put them on the...
With two Senate Republicans, Shelby and Kyl,
coming out against the Detroit bailout because in their view,
"an auto bailout would only postpone the industry's
demise," Barney Frank has some inspiring thoughts on spending
billions more in taxpayer dollars.
"The House is ready to do it," said Democratic Rep. Barney Frank
