Where Right Meets Left →
I would submit that the only real conservatives are constitutional conservatives. Socons and corporatists, like liberals, feel government is to be used get you things. They view government power as a sword rather than a shield. They also assume government is only benevolent, that bureaucrats never do harm.

House Judiciary Committee to ISPs: “You Must Spy... →
Despite serious privacy concerns being voiced by both Democratic and Republican leaders and by thousands of digital rights activists using EFF’s Action Center, this afternoon the House Judiciary Committee voted 19 to 10 to recommend passage of H.R. 1981. That bill contains a mandatory data retention provision that would require your Internet service providers to retain 12 months’ worth of...

Why I support separation of church and state →
It has less to do with the religious right (who I am also opposed to) and more to do with the religious left who have far more influence with the current administration “Our elected officials are protecting corporations and wealthy individuals while shredding the safety net for millions of the most vulnerable people in our nation and abroad. Our faith won’t allow us to passively watch...

This is the same Reuters who refused to call Osama bin Laden a terrorist.
What’s Norwegian for “Dear John?” →
Sometimes being a navy geek can have its drawbacks. When I first heard the Norwegian psychopath being compared to “John Brown,” my first thought was “what does one of Britain’s most renowned ship builders have to do with that nutjob?” Then once I recovered from my facepalm, I refreshed my memory of the militant abolitionist of the same name.
Holy crap! →
As a bit of background on the federal debt ceiling situation, they noted that during the month of June, the government issued checks (or equivalents) for Medicare, Social Security, active duty and retired military, Disability/SSI, and Food Stamps. 211,800,000 checks. Over two hundred and eleven million checks. Two hundred and eleven million checks for people who depend on the government for...
Mayhem In Norway →
What I don’t understand is how the man was able to shoot and kill to his heart’s content for close to two hours. I was far less interested in his alleged political convictions than I was disturbed by the fact that close to 600 people with cell phones had not been able to get help. And I am even more disturbed by the fact that no one was asking that question. All the cockeyed ideas...
Huntsman: Conservation is Conservative →
Yesterday presidential candidate Jon Huntsman spoke to the enviroconservative group ‘Republicans for Environmental Protection.’ Huntsman was vague on specifics, but he sounded an awful lot like he was on the other side of this issue from most Republicans

More Myths About Oil Sands →
This is one of the most common misconceptions about petroleum products I’ve seen, but it has multiple variations: the notion that fracking produces methane gas in tap water is one, as is the assumption here in California that the tar on the Santa Barbara beaches is there because we are drilling off the coast. People assume that fossil fuels and related substances such as methane and tar are...
Alarmist Climate Models Shown To Be Wrong by NASA... →
James Taylor, from the Heartland Institute and writing in Forbes brings us the story that new data from NASA has all but proven the alarmist climate model predictions are clearly and demonstrably wrong.
Rep. David Wu’s Creepy Enablers →
Welcome to another freaky ethics fiasco brought to you by the D.C. den of dysfunctional Democrats. This one comes clothed in a Tigger costume, wrapped in blinders, and bathed in the fetid Beltway odor of eau de Pass le Buck.
The Case for the Long Game →
In 2012, there is a good, and rising, chance, of not merely having a united Republican government — we had that from 2003 to 2007, and it was a failure — but of having a united conservativegovernment. And there in lies the difference, folks. Simply changing parties is not enough. We have to elect people with different mindsets. A moderate Republican who does nothing but spend,...
Arctic scientist under investigation →
A federal wildlife biologist whose observation in 2004 of presumably drowned polar bears in the Arctic helped to galvanize the global warming movement has been placed on administrative leave and is being investigated for scientific misconduct, possibly over the veracity of that article.
Does the Path to 2012 Go Through the Boehner Plan? →
Well, I think it does. And I know that this is a hot issue—but I am really hung up on the message that this sends to the independent voters. People who aren’t following this very closely and won’t crunch the numbers.
Amen: 2 x 2 = 4 ...George Jonas provides the last... →
With all this solidarity, why did nobody try to stop the killer, despite the island being crowded with 600 boys and girls in the same age category of the average Israeli who starts military service in the IDF? Is it possible that the Norwegian pacifist and tolerant utopia devitalized its population from the ability to fight back darkness and terrorism?”
Landslide for whomever →
For some time I’ve felt that unless we nominate someone with a lot of baggage, our prospects were better next year than they have seemed—particularly while we’re still getting a lot of our information from the MSM. National Journal takes an in-depth look at the poll numbers, pointing out that the President’s problems for 2012 go beyond his cratering approval numbers. After all, a...
Shared sacrifice →
In other words, we’re making all these waves and running around with our Press ablaze 24/7 — and agreeing in a true spirit of bipartisanship to use “default” when we don’t actually refer to anything of the sort — over a number the rough equivalent of the annual interest on the national debt that buys us a third of a year before we’re all back here again.
Norway Killer Also a Plagiarist →
The 1500+ page “manifesto” that is alleged to have been written by Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik has the Left and their establishment media allies doing circle jerks and kept them busy for the past few days checking the “manifesto” for names from their enemies list. But it appears to be a complete cut-and-paste job rather than the culmination of years of extensive study by...

Leave aside a moment that the tax code of that era had so many deductions and credits no one ever paid 70%, but if the illiberal Left wants to go back to 1950′s taxes, then they should accept 1950′s spending
Is Barack Obama creating more child hunger? →
We know Barack Obama’s policies undermined and destroyed the recovery that was underway in early 2010. But sometimes it can be easy to forget that there are real people behind these higher unemployment numbers.

Some businesses would hire fewer black people or other racial minorities based on racist presumptions - a practice which would be morally wrong, although within their rights. I believe that those who...

Obama Tries Something Not-So-New: Renewed Talks... →
Perhaps using the budget debacle as camouflage, President Obama is pursuing yet another one of his failed policy ideas: talking to dictators who wish to see the United States wiped off the map. It worked so well for our relations with Iran, so why wouldn’t it work with North Korea?
While officials from the Obama Administration raised their rhetoric over the weekend about the possibility of a debt default if the debt ceiling isn’t raised, they privately have been telling top executives at major U.S. banks that such an event won’t happen, FOX Business has learned.

Boehner Plan Back to the Drawing Board →
Speaker Boehner has rushed his bill back to the drawing board with the hope of re-writing its provisions to get better numbers out of the CBO. The bill is still tentatively scheduled for a vote tomorrow, but Boehner can lose only 23 Republicans before he has to find votes among the Democrats.

THE ENCLAVE: "Womyn"? Says Who? →
meravie: Revisiting “Politically Correct” Your first instinct might be to dismiss words like “womyn” and being asked not to use “gay” as an insult as “that PC crap”. If so, sit back and think about that. Um… did I miss something here? Women, a “non privileged group” apparently, decided that “women” is unacceptable and that it needed to be spelt “womyn” instead? Really? I mean, if there...
Anyway, I have only one thing to say right now, and then I have to go pick up my burka* from the cleaners: how many of those on the left crowing in delight that they’ve finally got a blond, blue-eyed, white male “Christian conservative” nationalist murderer to wave around like a bloody shirt have images of Che Guevara on their walls or clothing?
Wisconsin’s offering a teachable moment →
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker stuck to his principles despite the lies and the fear mongering used by his opponents and today, Wisconsin is better off.
