And it is about time. People are wizening to the fact the people ripping them off the hardest are those that have been claiming, for decades, to be on their side and they are not happy. It is not a mistake that when progressives grab power, the policies they put into place to redress the wrongs they constantly harp about, actually do the exact opposite of what they tell everyone they want to do. … Read more

It looks like many others are figuring out that the checks and balances of our constitutional republic have been broken down by the rise of the nanny state, and in particular, the problems that this new fourth power branch – the unelected and unaccountable government bureaucrat – cause to our rights and freedoms are being shown by the abuse of power rampant through the Obama administration. In particular, we have the most powerful entity in … Read more
I see that even the NYT is forced to admit that not every higher education field of study provides the same earning potential, albeit, the author prefixes this indubitable fact with the excuse that somehow it only matters in times of a recession. That’s bullshit. No, not the admission that degrees ins some fields are worth far more than others , but that this only happens to be the case during a recession.

I am now convinced Nixon’s crime was to be a republican. We are now getting told by the Obama administration’s IRS cronies that we can’t get Lerner’s emails, because, not only did the PC she used crash and lose her local copy, but they then formatted that hard drive and gave it to somebody else.
Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s crashed hard drive has been recycled, making it likely the lost emails of the lightening
I have always held the belief that today’s modern left is simply a modern day version of the old and corrupt aristocratic members of the feudal or guild systems of the middle ages – entities that closely guarded access to the benefits that membership provided, while lording it over everyone – and amounts to nothing but a protection racket for the connected. The progressive oligarchy smartened up however, knowing that simply doing business as usual, … Read more
I am with Glenn H. Reynolds, whom I think hits the IRS scandal nail right on the head when he points out there is no way the WH was not involved. After revelations that Lois Lerner isn’t the only one whose emails the IRS has lost, there are 6 other people being investigated and all their emails conveniently have gone missing too, I can’t help but conclude this is deliberate.

It now looks like the IRS conveniently lost the Lerner emails that would prove the extent of the criminal activity going on there:
Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement regarding the Internal Revenue Service informing the Committee that they have lost Lois Lerner emails from a period of January 2009 – April 2011. Due to a supposed computer crash, the agency only has Lerner
The cultists love to tell us about how the melting of the polar caps, but especially the Antarctic Glacier, validates their cult’s premise that man’s doing this, and not nature. I watched an episode of the heavily politically motivated Cosmos TV show just a week or two ago where they pushed their global warming agenda hard, playing fast and loose with the facts, and never mentioning as alternative energy to fossil fuels the only technology … Read more
