America chooses socialism

Good luck with that one. How’s it working out for Greece? Americans could be excused for voting for Obama in 2008. He promised post-partisanship and hope and change. Four years later, his record is consistent as an unabashed statist and central planner, and a Nixonian political thug. There are a lot of factors behind...

Is Colin Powell an idiot?

“Republican” Colin Powell endorses Barack Obama. Powell voted for Obama in 2008. Lots of Republicans and moderates did. Obama offered a message of hope, change, post-racialism, and post-partisanship. Lots of people fell for it.  And John McCain was an execrable, free-speech-hating, bank-bailout-pushing, grumpy old man. But now? After seeing the reality of Obama, an...

MorOn.org lies to its thousands of gullible Facebook followers

Um, no. The Salt Lake Tribune is not Mormon-owned. It’s owned by an out-of-state corporation, MediaNews Group. And it has a history of liberal editorial policy despite its conservative constituency. It endorsed Obama in 2008, too. In totally unrelated news, new study shows that Republicans are significantly better informed than Democrats.

Thoughts on Obama’s epic debate fail

Yes, Obama was arrogant, lazy, unprepared, and incompetent. But enough about his Presidency. Let’s talk about the debate. Both contestants used bogus figures and optimistic assumptions. Romney’s plan to grow his way out of 8% GDP deficits without serious defense cuts and entitlement reforms is as absurd as the Hope & Change that Obama...

This is a subject I’ve been meaning to write about, but have not had the time to give its due. Fortunately, SLOB friend Leslie Eastman does an excellent job saying what needs to be said. Democracy cannot survive without an honest and independent press.  America has lost that free and independent press as reporters...

QE 3 ∞: Zimbabwe Ben goes Full Retard

Now he’s done it. Not just the QE3 everybody expected, but an open-ended commitment to keep printing money as long as it takes. Straight from the Dirty Fed: To support a stronger economic recovery and to help ensure that inflation, over time, is at the rate most consistent with its dual mandate, the Committee...

Just as the financial crisis gave central planners an excuse to destroy capitalism and replace it with a Federal Reserve-manipulated farce, September 11 gave them an excuse to gut the Bill of Rights and have TSA goons grope us for the crime of trying to move about the country. Remember folks, they hate us...

Reason sums it up: It isn’t hard to find examples of marginal groups whose paranoia about the government drove them to violence. The tale of the Weavers shows how the government’s paranoia about marginal groups can drive it to violence, too. The feds looked at a family with fringy views and perceived a threat,...

The middle class now receives far more in government handouts than it pays in taxes. This is very good news for Obama’s re-election prospects. A solid majority is now on the take from the government. The only questions now are how long the top two quintiles will keep carrying the 60% slackers, and how...

Insiders had advance word on SCOTUS ObamaCare ruling

At 9:51 am EDT, a Wall Street brokerage firm sent out the message “health care stocks trading like the law will be upheld.” In the rigged stock market of America’s centrally planned economy, those with access to the central planners have an advantage.  If you’re looking around the stock market and can’t tell who...
