Is the Passing of Liberals to be mourned?

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010 under Domestic, Politics, Uncategorized

This is a column on American Thinker blog asking if we feel sorry for the suicide-by-policy of the Libs & Progs.

.. ummm.. NO.

Not only NO, but HELL NO.

What do I want for Liberals and Progs?

I think Al Capone said it best when discussing Eliot Ness in The Untouchables.[…]

Tyranny, “Progressives” and the Future

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010 under Uncategorized

I posted this in the summer of 2009 during the debate on healthcare.

As we run-up to another election, it’s worth re-reading. The tyranny of the “Progressives,” as recently again demonstrated by NPR, still isn’t the issue, any more than the issue during the healthcare debate, was healthcare.

The facts are there. How you vote WILL determine America’s future – and the future of the West, Democracy, Human Rights… and Freedom.

Elections, as they say…. have CONSEQUENCES.[…]

Adam Smith and Modern Progressivism

Monday, October 25th, 2010 under Domestic, Education, Politics

I know, that sounds a bit daft, linking one of the foremost intellectuals of the 18th Century with the morons of Modern Progressivism, doesn’t it?

“Progressives,” being regressive in intent and result, just HATE capitalism, right? Makes some richer than others, some poorer. Waaah….. (Newsflash: Who does well? Those who work. Who does poorly? Those who don’t. Not rocket science.)

Let’s skip the part about the ONLY economies on the planet that actually have created wealth for their citizens, increased standards of living, become wealthy enough to spend time and money on the environment, the only ones in which […]

Jerry Brown – AGAIN? … & Why Vote for Democrats

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010 under Climate, Domestic, Education, Foreign Policy and International, Politics, Taxes & Economy

I have posted some videos over on YouTube. They’re all under or just at 2 min running time, except one (Education), that is about 3 min due to the amount of included video from other sources. Please review them if you get a chance and think they’ll be of interest to you. Thanks.

The first is a comment on the amazing concept of Jerry Brown running for Governor of CA…  again.

I think everyone in the Western World, and certainly policy-makers in China and Russia, as well, understands that California is going bankrupt, and that public sector unions are […]

Why Carry a Gun?

Friday, October 22nd, 2010 under Domestic, Miscellaneous, Politics

Why Carry a Gun?

My old grandpa said to me ‘Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin.’

I don’t carry a gun to kill people. I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun to scare people. I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid. I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.

I […]

A Different Slant On The Obama Presidency

Friday, October 22nd, 2010 under Domestic, Politics

From a friend:

One 82-year-old lady loves Obama But for reasons he might not appreciate.  She says that Obama is amazing, and is rebuilding the American dream!  She gives us an entirely new slant on the “amazing” job Obama is doing,  and she says that she will thank God for the President.  Keep reading for her additional comments and an explanation.


When discussing Obama, she says:

1.  Obama destroyed the Clinton Political Machine, driving a stake through the heart of Hillary’s presidential aspirations – something no Republican was ever able to do. [Not sure of this yet; have to see

Chile Miner Rescue-American Know How

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010 under Domestic, Foreign Policy and International, Politics, The Rest of the World

Far be it for our American President to publicly congratulate (let alone even mention) AMERICAN ingenuity and AMERICAN PRIVATE ENTERPRISE for the miracle rescue of the Chilean Miners.

Schramm Inc. of West Chester, Pennsylvania built the drills and equipment used to reach the trapped miners.

Center Rock Company, also from Pennsylvania, built the drill bits used to reach the miners.

UPS, the US shipping company, delivered the 13-ton drilling equipment from Pennsylvania to Chile in less than 48 hours.

Crews from Layne Christensen Company of Wichita Kansas, and its subsidiary Geotec Boyles Bros., worked the drills and machinery to locate […]

Economics Summary of the Last 34 Years in a Nutshell

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010 under Domestic, Politics, Taxes & Economy

If you read only one column on the economy and the various policies implemented to address it over the past generation-plus, this is the column you should read. (Don’t let the title scare you off…)

It’s three screens and very high-level, i.e. it won’t bore you to-death, but rather contains a very concise summary of where we are, how we got here and where we will – or will not – be going.

Hat-tip: RealClearPolitics[…]

Diplomacy 101(A)

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010 under Domestic, Foreign Policy and International, Politics, War and Terrorism

In order to understand many of the problems in the world today one must come to grips with the fact that “Liberal” “Diplomacy” is a contradiction in terms.

(I use quotes around “liberals” of today because they are actually the opposite of classical liberalism, which championed the individual against the State. “Liberals” today are exactly the opposite of that, championing the State at the expense of the individual. But they are too badly-educated to understand this.)

Look at the post-1968 world of “Liberals.” “Liberals” don’t believe in consequences. Really. How many gun control laws have they passed? Do they ever, […]
