Shifting the Numbers

We’ve gotten used to the numbers game this Administration plays with Obamacare. It was going to ensure thirty million. No twenty million. No ten million. We have seven million signed up! Well, they haven’t all paid. And five million previously had insurance. And insurance rates are going down! Well, they’re actually going up. And the number of uninsured is the lowest in five years! Well, that just brings us back to pre-recession levels — a … Read more

More selective law enforcement

One of the things that the DOJ gets to do is approve which companies get to merge or not. The other day I wrote about the pending Comcast-Time Warner merger, as a means of pointing out the abuses of this administration, and how, conveniently, democrats are the party you buy special favors from. Well, I now have confirmation of a different angle to the Comcast-Time Warner merger story, and the role the DOJ has … Read more

Criminals protected by progressive ideology

As the IRS scandal is approaching a year of being ignored, with the LSM and the left pretending there was nothing despicably immoral and “pound me in the ass prison visit required for the people involved” illegal about it, a good site to keep updated is at taxprof’s blog. He has been on this thing, and considering how much he has put together nobody should be left with any doubt that the criminal organization … Read more

The Bundy Ranch

I’ve been trying to catch up on the saga of Cliven Bundy and his ranch out in Nevada that just resulted in a government standoff. If my understanding of the situation is correct, here’s the lowdown:

Bundy’s family has been grazing cattle in Nevada since 1870. He allowed his cattle to graze onto adjoining land, which was publicly owned. In 1998, a Court ordered him to stop doing so or pay the feds $200 per … Read more

Stevens Advocating for the Liberal Constitution

John Paul Stevens, the former Supreme Court justice whom Lee once called a dick for his decision in Raich v. Gonzalez, has a book out about how to rewrite the Constitution so that liberal agendas will be easier to advance. I wish I were joking about that.

There’s been a lot of noise about rewriting the Constitution from the Left lately. You can read screeds about it here and here (that’s from Brooks, but … Read more

The Taxman Taketh

This is pretty fucking outrageous:

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt.

When Grice was 4, back in 1960,

Obamacare update

The other day Black Jesus and the sycophants that follow him around looking for any chance to suckle his cock were all atwitter and telling us how the ACA had enrolled 7.1 million people – a number I think is fake as hell – doing their victory dance, and avoiding giving any details that would leave any reasonable person to conclude that this was all an attempt to put about a ton of lipstick on … Read more

It’s because I rebalanced my 401(K) today

If you missed it, today was a bad day for US stocks, as the market finally seemed to come to it’s senses and correct.

U.S. stocks were slammed on Thursday, with high-flying technology and biotech shares leading the declines that had the Nasdaq Composite posting its worst session in more than two years.

“The market is coming to its senses in some of the high-flying tech names; it looked like there were some pretty

Winter is coming…

April 15th, tax day, draws nigh!

Did you buy your jar of Vaseline yet? Yeah, that was a reference to the whole “Game of Thrones” thing, but it is apt. “An evil monster, undead and wanting to draw the very life out of you, the IRS is”, as Yoda would say.

Me, I will be mailing the IRS a check, as I do every year, because I refuse to let these crooks take more than … Read more

Asymmetric Arrogance

Over at Ezra Klein’s new venture, there is a fascinating piece about how politics make us stupid. Klein details experiments that show that both liberals and conservatives have a tendency to interpret facts so that they reinforce their own pre-existing biases. Or, more accurately, that people tend to interpret even objective scientific evidence in ways that support the ideas of their political tribe. It is worth your time.

Of course, the Left Wing never likes … Read more
