This is the sort of change he promised

While I am less bothered to see this phenomenon is happening in the People’s Republic of California, a deep blue state, and one of the reasons the economically illiterate idiot in the WH was elected, not once, but twice, it is still saddening to see it happen. It shows how bad things have gotten:

Debbie Rohr lives with her husband and twin teenage sons in a well-tended three-bedroom home in Salinas. The ranch-style house has

At Least He’s Honest About It

Building on Alex’s post on income inequality, I note that Mathew Yglesias published this over at Vox. Yglesis advocates for raising the top marginal rate on salaries above $10 million to 90% and the inheritance tax of estates over $10 million to 90%. His argument is that the Laffer Curve is largely bunk and there is no evidence that raising incomes that high would seriously hurt the economy, at least if it were confined to … Read more

Circling the wagons, but to no avail…

The left must be seeing the writing on the wall, because they are desperate, and while some believe this is a deliberate strategy, the fact remains that the democrats have shown themselves to be profiteers, liars, crooks, and in general scumbags of the highest orders. Obama has, yet again, set a new low for the office. The latest shenanigans come in response to a poll pointing out that 61% of Americans now see Obama Read more

The liberal solution: take 125537899

In the people’s great city of Detroit, where credentialed liberal ideologues have been running the show for more than 6 decades, things have not been going so well. OK, I am fucking around when I act sarcastic like this. Detroit is a disaster of epic proportions. The left created an unsustainable model that robbed the tax payers and incentivized business to move elsewhere, while the elected officials pissed away any and all prosperity. So now … Read more

IRS Scandal update

The proof that there not only is a scandal about the IRS and the DOJ colluding to fuck over conservatives, but that there was/is a massive breach of the law here has apparently not been noticed by the DNC controlled LSM, which is probably still desperately clinging to Black Jesus’ lie that this is all a manufactured scandal.

Corruption: New emails show that both the IRS and Justice Department were involved in a probe of

Killing the goose that laid the golden egg

Over at the Hoover Institution journal, they have a damning article, appropriately titled “The United States of Envy”, where they give us a clear picture of the left’s strategy for the coming election:

In advance of the 2014 election, the Obama administration has drawn the political discussion away from its unpopular and flawed healthcare plan, usually called Obamacare, to bring public attention and support for increased income redistribution. President Obama openly encouraged envy

Totes Not A Democracy

Well, it’s a scientific fact, friends. We don’t live in a democracy:

A new scientific study from Princeton researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page has finally put some science behind the recently popular argument that the United States isn’t a democracy any more. And they’ve found that in fact, America is basically an oligarchy.

An oligarchy is a system where power is effectively wielded by a small number of individuals defined by their

And Now a Susanna Martinez Nontroversy

Boy, the Democrats are scared that they’re going to lose power. We’ve been monitoring their progress toward insanity for some time — the Koch Brothers obsession, the hysterics over Supreme Court decisions, the attempts to portray even the most moderate Republicans as crazed maniacs.

Well, we’re now into the personal attacks. You may remember about a year ago, Mother Jones — now the unofficial muckraker of the Democratic Party — ran a bizarre piece on … Read more

When I say this model is unsustainable..

It is because of facts like the following:

Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work — in the private sector — and did it week after week after week.

In 2012, according to the Census

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
