Egypt?

There’s no telling how that will turn out.

Why I did not watch the State of the Union

Well, for one thing, it was going to be nothing more than vapors. Our sorry narcissistic preening clod of a president was going to enjoy the sound of his own voice and hope that viewers would warm up to him … Continue reading

Dennis Corkery, 1952-2011

I am thankful to Facebook for this. In one of those forays of looking for old friends, I got in touch with Dennis Corkery, with whom I had become fast friends in college days. We spoke on the phone last March … Continue reading

Government is instituted to protect rights

So when it effectively perseveres in the protection of industrialized death, it needs to be overthrown. All the above concepts taken from the Declaration of Independence.

Stanley Kurtz on the violent Leftist rhetoric of Frances Fox Piven

And how, after she calls for “strikes and riots” on the model of Greece, the Left accuses conservatives of picking on an old woman when they cite it.

The vile arrogant scumbag Schumer

Caught about a six-second clip of him from an appearance on one of the Sunday talk shows. His logic was that because the rotten monstrosity ObamaCare scandal has some things in it that people like that the entire pile of … Continue reading

Porretto on our emerging Carthage

It’s a video, which for some reason my new software resists attempts to embed. So here’s the link. How America slides toward atavistic paganism, and the lack of outrage attending thereto.

Who gets the crack pipe?

That’s the question I have on hearing news that Keith Olbermann has signed off on MSNBC. I’ve had some things to say here about this repulsive human being, but I think that I best summed it up right after the … Continue reading

Victor Davis Hanson sums up the Left’s ‘civility’ scam

He’s good, as usual: Civility for Thee. I take issue with this sentence, however: “That Obama is a postracial mellifluent Chicago politician does not mean that he is not a Chicago politician.” There’s no evidence at all (that withstands challenge) … Continue reading

Ron Paul’s girlish, hysterical take on Iraq and Afghanistan

It calls into question the rest of his views. These are small, long wars. They are not Vietnam. They are not World War II. Paul talks about them as if they were the apocalypse. Watching him, surrounded by people who … Continue reading

Folie à deux

It’s rich stuff. Sort of like an Irish coffee, heavy on the cream, five sugars, hold the coffee. It was the first openly insane Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, with MSNBC man’o’war Rachel Maddow. It was a little like … Continue reading

After laying in a generation’s worth of damage to the economy…

…Obama wants to talk about “regulatory relief?” We have a humorist in the White House.

What marks the conversion point?

When does stupidity effectively qualify as insanity? I think that the conversation I just listened to between MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan and a woman by the name of Helena Norberg-Hodge marks that point. In another context it could have been … Continue reading

Just seen on Fox News!

During a discussion on the repeal of ObamaCare, a woman (maybe a doctor) starts out by clamoring for the return of the “public option.” Before the discussion is over she has already moved on to clamor for a “single-payer system.” … Continue reading

The technical problem appears to be solved

Welcome back. Give me a few minutes to crank up the vitriolic rhetoric.
